Cuphead: How To Get The Secret Cursed Charm

The secret charm can be purchased by visiting the shop called Porkrind’s Emporium where you can buy the Broken Relic for a price of one gold coin.

After purchasing you will need to solve the puzzle found in the Graveyard by interacting with three correct tombstones. The solution for this puzzle is different for every player so you will need to talk with the three NPCs standing next to the shop. These NPCs will tell you about their story while dropping hints about the position and order of the tombstone that you need to interact with.

You will have to watch for these keywords during their dialogues such as “As a Winner, I never gave up! Left’em looking foolish!”, “I left downtown in a hurry, and forgot my gear, I’ll settle for a second”,” Third Place? I guess things can only go up from here!”

Now equip this Broken Relic and head over to the Graveyard to solve the puzzle. Depending on the hints given by them, you will need to choose the correct tombstone based on the order and position of these NPCs on the podium.

Once you interact with the correct tombstones, a happy ghost will appear with a prompt on your screen asking whether you would like to take a nap. Click yes to take a little nap and begin the secret boss fight.

After you defeat the boss, you will be teleported back to the Graveyard and the ghost detective will start talking to you.

Now your Broken Relic will be transformed into a Cursed Relic and you will also receive an achievement called “A Horrible Night to Have a Curse”.As the name suggests, this Cursed Relic will bring down your character to just one HP and your weapon will keep changing randomly when you fight.

It will also change the background music to a more eerie one to remind you that something is wrong. If you are looking to make things more challenging and interesting for you then do equip this Relic once to have some fun.

That’s it, now go ahead and follow these steps to unlock the secret cursed charm!
