What Does Broken Relic Do in Cuphead DLC

The Broken Relic item in the Cuphead Delicious Last Course DLC lets you solve the graveyard puzzle in the Howling Aces region. We’ll cover that in more detail in a separate Cuphead graveyard puzzle solution guide, but basically, you need to interact with three of the gravestones to unlock a secret boss fight. However, before you can do any of this, you need to purchase the Broken Relic from Porkrind’s Emporium. It costs only one Coin, which shouldn’t be too much of a problem to afford. If you have no money for whatever reason, go behind the shop and keep going left. There’s a secret coin next to the house behind the bakery.

So, yeah, that’s what the Broken Relic does in the Cuphead Delicious Last Course DLC and how to use it. If there’s another use for it that we’re not aware of, let us know in the comments. As for how to actually solve the graveyard puzzle, go back to the Emporium and talk to each of the people on the podium. Each of the competitors will mention a direction (down left, right, up, etc), and the dialogue is random each time. The order of the tombstones that you need to interact with them in is based on the places on the podium. So, if the person in first place says something like “I left them in the dust,” the first headstone you need to “press” is the one in the middle left.
