Hogwarts Legacy: How to open locked doors in Hogwarts

Hogwarts Legacy: How to open locked doors in Hogwarts

In this Hogwarts Legacy guide, we'll let you know how to unlock some of those pesky doors.

Hogwarts Legacy is full of magical wonders for the eyes to see. However, it’s also full of pesky locked puzzle doors.

Thankfully, we’ve got you covered so that you can take on some of those locked doors to help you progress in the newly released Hogwarts Legacy action RPG set within the Wizarding World.

You first need a spell to unlock some doors

As reported by GameSpot, for some of the more basic locked doors, you’ll have to progress a little in the story of Hogwarts Legacy to see what lies beyond its obstruction.

Firstly, you’ll need to learn the Alohomora spell which will allow you to pick Level 1 locks. The Alohomora lock-picking spell will not only let you unlock Level 1 doors but chests too.

This particular spell will be unlocked once you complete The Caretaker’s Lunar Lament quest. However, if you want to unlock Level 2 and Level 3 locks, you will need to acquire at least 30 Demiguise Statues to level up that are scattered throughout the game.

Then you partake in a mini-game

Once you have access to the Alohomora spell, it won’t be a simple case of walking up to locked doors and chests and pressing a single button. You’ll also be required to participate in a mini-game before you get your grubby mitts on that loot.

In order to progress past the mini-game you’ll need to first align the red spark. If performed correctly, the lock mechanism should start spinning and you then repeat the process, only this time with the green spark.

When the mechanism spins, you’ll also need to align and hold position by pressing the analogue sticks for two or three seconds. If all is performed successfully, the door should then unlock. Job done!

If you want to unlock some bonus DLC for free in Hogwarts Legacy, then fear not, because we’ve got your back. Best of all, attending a Hogwarts potion lesson is not required.

Hogwarts Legacy releases this week for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on the 10th of February or on today for those that pre-ordered the Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition or Deluxe Edition.

As for last-gen and Nintendo Switch owners, you’ll have to be a little more patient. Hogwarts Legacy will release on 4th April for PS4 and Xbox One, and then for Nintendo Switch on 25th, July.
