How to Follow the Map to the Secret in Return to Monkey Island: At the end of the second part of Return to Monkey Island, the player will be thrown overboard and end up on the sea floor.

Guybrush is known for being able to hold his breath for eight minutes (or ten in some Monkey Island games), giving players plenty of time to help him get to safety and the series’ namesake island.

Part 3 of Return to Monkey Island is one of the shortest parts of the game, but it has some puzzles that can be hard to figure out. Again, players will have to figure out how to change Guybrush’s appearance and find out some of his worst enemy’s biggest secrets. This guide will give them all the information they need.

To start, players must keep going to their right until they reach a small beach. Here, they need to go to the left and pick up the Skull, then go into the jungle.

This will take them to a screen with a map of Monkey Island. From there, they can move to the Red Berry Bush area.

Here, the map that the players stole from LeChuck will tell them to follow a stone hand, take a path by a wooden chicken, sneak past some bees, and then follow a sign. By Monkey Island standards, it’s all pretty easy to figure out, but for those who are still stuck, it means to take the right, middle, and right paths, which will lead to a big X and a shovel.

Guybrush will fall into a complicated trap if he picks up the Shovel, even though the three pirate leaders were hoping to catch LeChuck instead of him.

It turns out that the three of them swapped LeChuck’s map to the secret for a fake before he could get it. Now, they need some key information about the bad ghost pirate to decrypt the real map.

Someone will have to play LeChuck’s music, say his catchphrase, and then eat his favorite food for the map to show its secrets.

Guybrush is the one who has to deal with this, but before he can do anything, he has to convince the pirate leaders to let him go. This can be done by suggesting that the three people ask LeChuck’s crew for the information they need and then going through all of the conversation options that come up.
