Once you start Chapter 4, get out of the shed, go down the small flight of stairs, and find some supplies on your left. Took towards your right, and you will see the resin pool in the middle and a swarm of rats under it.

Take a look, and you will be able to find a drawbridge just beside the cabin entry. Use the sling and rock and break the rope holding the drawbridge. After this, the guard inside the cabin will be suspicious and come out to the house to check. He will walk across the platform to rotate the footbridge on your side.

Once you are there, get onto the bridge and spill the alcohol into the resin pit using the crank on the barrel. Once done, equip the Igniter pot and throw it into the pool.

Once you are done, you will have to ask Lucas to turn the crank so that the footbridge moves while you still stand on it. Try reaching the other side and as soon as the guard lowers the boat, ask Lucas to let go of the crank. Continue repeating the process of pouring alcohol into the resin pit and light it up.

Get back to the central platform, and as you go to the very end of it, there will be a crank that you need to pull so that you can bring the boat up that was earlier being operated by the guard.

Push the footbridge to the far end by asking Lucas to use the crank. After you are done, you must repeat the process for the next resin pits.

Your next task is to bring Lucas to the other side, but there is not much light, so you can hardly see anything. To do that, get back to the first resin pit and equip your sling with Tar.

Release the tar into the pit, and then release your blinding light. Once you are done, get back to the last crank and try pulling up the boat so that Lucas can get on the other side.

Use the stairs to get down to him and then use the sling and the rock to break the rope holding the last drawbridge on the guard’s side.

To kill the guard blocking your path, use the combination of Igniter and Tar and set him on fire. First, attack him with your ignifer, and then use the Tar pot on him. Get past him while he is still burning, and take the flight of stairs on your left. Go upstairs and take the door that is on your right.

Getting past the door marks the completion of the Docks Puzzle in The Plague Tale Requiem, and you will be able to unlock the Mercy Achievement.
