    Part 7: I Hate Tombs

  • Look across the way for a blue smoke beacon. You’ll need one more rope bridge to cross over to it.
  • Follow the path at the top of the cliff into a cave, where you’ll find a campfire. Head through the cave to find the man you’re looking for, an amazing temple, and an ugly surprise.
  • You’ll start the next section in a very unpleasant location. Swing back and forth to free yourself, and get the hell out of the room.
  • Follow the windy path to find a shotgun, a place to use it, and a small opening to crawl into. That will take you into a very interesting location with a cutscene.
  • Next, you’ll face a bunch of guys who drop into the room, but you have a shotty, so it’s cool. Kill them off, collect their loot, and then use the bell to open the gate to the next bit.
  • You’ll find a campfire, and then have to hang your ass out over nothing to climb around the outside of the monastery. There are easier ways to do things, but Lara doesn’t seem capable of doing things the easy way.
  • Inside you’ll face a handful of guys, including one with a shield. By now I’d bought the upgrade where you can dodge and then stab a guy with an arrow. It’s hilarious. Clear the room, climb up, and open one shutter, swing the clapper, then switch shutters, swing it again. You’ll be attacked by a bunch of guys then, including one armored, so have the shotgun ready. Then open both shutters and swing the clapper one more time.
  • What do you think, another section where you run for your life like a maniac? Sure, why not. By the time you’re done, you’ll be back at the Mountain Village! How convenient. Follow the marker to exit the cave and find a fire to upgrade, etc.
  • Now would be the time to finish collecting stuff in the Mountain Village if you haven’t. Otherwise, we’ll go back to that Unknown Tomb we skipped earlier!
  • Follow the marker to encounter some bad guys, and then you’ll make a rope bridge to get back to close to where this level started. Man, this level is really, REALLY big. I chose to ascend back to where I left the tomb and rustle up some extra goodies before continuing on to help Sam.
  • The second optional tomb is the Hall of Ascension. When you enter, you’ll see a shutter you can close, and a platform you can raise. Go close the shutter, then run to the platform. Put your axe in place, and wait until the first shutter blows open. Then raise the platform, jump on it, and when the second shutter opens, the platform will blow to a wall you can leap to. Pow.
  • Head back to the bottom of the mountain area to move on with your questing. Slide down a rope, recover, and the prepare to fight three guys. Set the gas pool on fire for a laugh, if you like.
  • If you move to the right, you can find an elevated position that will let you get the drop on the next wave of bad guys. Otherwise, move to the left cautiously. There’s a half a dozen guys coming up, including ones with guys and fire.
  • After that, you’ll cross a deluge and that leads to a very frenetic dodge/slide portion. After that it’s some QT events and you’re off to the next area!

    they also cut the scene where Lara bandages her arm, which I thought should have been left in!

    Trying to get through the end of the game. Can’t kill the giant who you encounter. I shoot him in the back as I see on the video, get the shield icon and then the “Y”, hit the “Y” but he just swats me away. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

    Are you trying to return to the Coastal Bluffs? This area is the first spot where Lara lands, and you should be able to reach it by fast-travelling to one of the Coastal Forest Base Camps. There’s nothing really in the Coastal Bluffs, though. All the items you’ll find only begin to appear in the Coastal Forest.

    Thank you so much for this walk through. It has helped me a lot at places where I didnt really know what to do or where to go. Thanks again.

    I swear my game must have a glitch! Towards the end when you have to defeat Mafias, I keep pressing E as fast as possible so he doesn’t kill me with me axe, but it’s still not working. What am I doing wrong?

    When you fight the giant armored deck, I do not use a knife. Where to get it on?

    You guys did a good job of the walkthrough except at the end fighting the big arsehole. It shows you died on the first attempt and then never finished it. I have gotten to the 2nd phase of this, killed the other warriors and cant seem to kill arsehole. How many times you gotta do him?? I get the action key and press it and have for 5 times now and he still swats me away. How many times does it take to kill him???? Why did you not show this part?????
