In Act 4, scenes 2 and 3, Hamlet is verbally sparring with first Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, then with Claudius over the whereabouts of Polonius' body.  He uses extreme wit in these scenes with lots of puns and double meanings.

Hamlet also uses his brain or wit in Act 4 where he exchanged the letter that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern had with the one he wrote himself. In the letter, it requested that the bearers of the letter be killed.
