Hi,
besides some minor bugs I came really well through the game on PC. Now I'm on 99% and I'm just missing this damn mine. I can see it but it's not on the position it should be. Instead it's hanging in a cliff and I can't hit it (tried with all kind of weapon also explosives).
My guess is that the storm moved it into the cliff and it can't get back.
Is there a way to reset it? Are others having this Problem?

Finally got it when i had a calm sea and shot at it with the rifle but took me some time to find the right position where the target gets red for a microsecond.

Hey, I have completed the game on pc, finishing on 99%. I decided to go back to find the last missing mine I needed in the minesweeper challenge for 100%.
After 2 hours of searching and following about 4 different guides which all go to the same locations I think I may have destroyed all 10 but it has only credited 9/10.
Is this a known issue with anyone else? As this is the last thing I need for 100% completion.

I'm having the same problem as you. i have finished everything else i'm at 97% complete and i have hit the point at which the game notifies you that you won't be able to go back if you continue.

How did you get the sea to calm down and where did you shot it from?

I have tried from across the bay where your screenshot is taken from and on the ledge right above it. i have tried the shotgun, the rifle, grenades, flaming arrows, explosive arrows, the pistol, everything.

Same here, though I did not finish the game, made it to the temple after the battle against the Samurai and decided to go back and finish the challenges on the beach. Found all the Cairns but only nine mines, used two different guides and still could not find the last one.

Same problem here.
I "thought" I was having a hard time finding them all. Followed a YT tut, step by step. I had already found them all and still says 9/10.

On Xbox.

Congrats on finding your last one. I had a look at all 10 locations again last night and still no mines exist. I shall post some screenshots later on the off chance this topic gets looked at by the tech support.

PC, according to the two guides I checked that mine should have been visible from the nearby shanty tower and not stuck under the reef.

I found and shot them all. Every one from the videos. It says I have 9/10. What the hell? It has to be a bug. I went to all the locations and looked around and my crosshairs did not turn red at all. It is the last thing I need...... Like a bunch of other people on the internet. It is a bug that should get fixed... I started the challenge before going back to your ship. I was going to finish it after. When I was done with the ship and it blew up the mines dissapeared. I've spent a hour trying.. Nothing..

8th Mar 2013, 19:58
I found the last one I needed. It was invisible. :/

If you can't find it and your game is at night the tide is high and it hides the mines. Go to the locations and move the crosshair to where videos say they are and it should turn red.

Try the grenade launcher on the rifle, maybe the area effect will affect the mine in the wall.

I've looked at several walkthroughs/guides for this and I still can't find the last one. It says I have 9/10. This is literally the only thing I have left of the game before reaching 100% but I swear I cannot find the last one...it doesn't exist. This must be a glitch or something. It's really kind of annoying.

Where exactly is this position? Could you show a screenshot of the map? (I'm also having this problem. Can't find the last mine. On PlayStation 3). The glitches in this game are really starting to piss me off. :mad2: I'm seriously considering trading this in for something that's not so bugged.

I found a mine that although I can see it clearly when it bobs above the waves, the reticule won't go red for me to shoot, and shooting it does nothing. It's before I get to Alex. I'll see if I can get a screen shot.

hi
i am now at 99% of the game
and i am missing only 1 Mine to destroy at the beach
i follow that guide to be sure i am not missing any thing
http://www.gosunoob.com/tomb-raider/tomb-raider-mine-sweeper-challenge-locations/

and i did, i went to all the locations and destroy some, and didn't find the other that mean i already got it

but still, i am missing only 1 Mine
could me glitch ? could be some one ( henchmen ) destroyed the mine by mistake and the game didn't count it for me ?

i spent about 2 hour searching with no luck

Finally stuck at one place. Found 9 minesweeper in Shipwreck Beach. Now while searching thoroughly, I noticed a bug very far away from the beach which can't be shootable from any angle with any weapon.

Here's some shot of that mine, tried from this angle:

Also tried to shoot it from the ship where we can find 'Block & Tackle':

But nothing working. Can anyone confirm if this is the right mine and where can I shoot it? :scratch:

Are you serious? It's a glitch. Of course it has to do with polishing. The mines are not there, they are suppose to be there, it's a bug. That they didn't catch, because the didn't polish the game enough. If they polished the game properly, none of us would be having any of the thousand of problems that people are having.

Had the same problem with this one. And I know I destroyed it before but there it was again. (first time it was glowing)

The game has trouble marking what's been done... I remember I went to a previous map to remark a camp base I used at least 2times when I first played on the map...

Hi
I have the same problem with the ps3 version.
I find and deatroy 9 mines, i don't find the last one. Of course I watched many videos on the net, but I cannot find the mine to the right of the tower, the number 7 of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE0iqhA0_oY
I was more than 7 hours trying after reading here, with a lot of expletives. But nothing. I think at this point is hidden or something stuck in the scenario and therefore invisible.
Can you give me a hand?
However, require a patch for this bug is obvious. These things are things that should not happen in 2013. Really unnerving.

15th Mar 2013, 08:29
This one has been mentioned before, but I thought I would confirm my experience. It was night time, so making it harder to spot and it was not glowing with Survival Instinct. Once I found it I could clearly see it in the sea, but the reticule did not change to red when I aimed at it. I fired exploding arrows at it, but they all seemed to miss, despite exploding at the very spot. In the end I used the machine gun, kept firing and it finally exploded.

I am also having this problem.

I have 9 of the 10 mines, and I've been able to complete all other challenges and have completed everything else. I'm just missing this one mine!

I've checked at LEAST 10 times (and no, that's not an exaggeration) at the locations given on various photo or video guides, and even in a large area around those locations, and there is nothing in any location. Instincts or not, I can't find a single thing.

This is an extremely aggravating bug. If there is a way Eidos/Square Enix can update the next patch with a reset of the mines, it would be awesome. Either that, or a way to reset challenges.

I got 8 from 10 no issue... the last 2 proved VERY problematic... The screen shot shows my completion (the one near destroyer is hidden in the rough night time sea) The penultimate one was the one that has a varying position (as i checked many guides) and its the one up near the red wreck...

The one in the rough sea is tricky. Your reticle does not o red. I used the machine gun to get it. Just wait for it to bob up over the waves. It might take a few goes.

atms627
19th Mar 2013, 14:09
I know for a fact I blew up all 10 (some early in the game some later). After running around forever and looking at guides I still couldnt find it. But I checked one last time for the mine before the zipline to the ship where you get the block and tackle. And even though I couldnt see it because of the waves, and it didn't pop up with my SI, my crosshair turned red and I blew it up. I had gotten this one up earlier in the game when the waves were not wild and it was daytime. Maybe this will work for others too. Worth a shot.

Hey guys!

This is a rare issue, but I wanted to give an update on what we’ve found. Seems like some of you are coming across a pair of different problems. If you think a mine isn’t where it is supposed to be, try a restart first and foremost.

Issue #1: Essentially, given enough time or fast travel one specific explosive mine near the Endurance wreck may pass through a nearby rock wall in the Beach Hub, obstructing it from view. You can spy a shot from the Brady Games strategy below, which details which mine this is. We’ve found a fix that will this from happening in Title Update #3, but unfortunately can’t resolve the issue for those of you who have already encountered it. We’re really sorry for the problem.

jnbvop_MineBug.jpg


Issue #2: This relates to a different mine at the furthest tip of the Galleon looking out at the ocean. A small number of PC players are reporting it as invisible. The good thing is that your reticle will still light up if you aim at it, and you can still trigger the explosion. For console players this mine may not light up with your survival instinct, making it hard to see. Again, it’s there and you’re able to set it off if you know where to look. We’re looking to tackle these issues in an update but wanted to provide you more details in the meantime!

As this wasn't listed in the two issues you're describing I just wanted to add something.

I managed to find and destroy the 10th "buggy" mine and now all my camps are showing as 100% complete; however, my save game still shows 99% and I didn't get the achievement for completing all challenges.

Did you check Cliffside bunker? You have to access it through shipwreck beach, it doesn't show on the fast travel screen.

hi guys, first of all this is not even my account but i want to help those who think there's this glitch or bug after searching for who knows how many hours. If you're a perfectionist like me and wants to get 100% completion CONTINUE to search! FINALLY i found my last mine driven ashore instead being steady on the water (like most guides or YT videos tell) even with strong waves! I'll say the storms were really that strong to push the mines ashore and make you think you ruined your game xD. Anyway i found my last mine (sorry if i don't have a pic to prove) by looking and viewing by the cliff where the last mine is (most guide labels it the 10th mine, yes the mine half-buried on the sand not floating on the waters!) View from that cliff and search for that mine. This is my case, it really depends where the mine has been driven ashore. Anyway DON'T lose hope, CONTINUE searching. Once you found it ashore like me, USE explosive arrows, GUNS won't work! Hope that helped. -AnonymousGamer from Italy ;)

Alternative shooting position (right above the mine):

Use the grenade launcher and aim in the water on the right side of the mine so the grenade is not deflected by the rocks and detonates near enough to the mine.

This bug has drove me NUTS, I've gone over and over different videos showing locations of the Mines for Mine Sweeper Challenge, all are there but one. 9/10 Complete 99% complete, screwed my game and it's not going to be fixed?

http://youtu.be/jaJkqRXCd50?t=4m Is the mine that's disappeared, 4 mins into IGN challenge guide.


We’ve found a fix that will this from happening in Title Update #3, but unfortunately can’t resolve the issue for those of you who have already encountered it. We’re really sorry for the problem.

So basically play the whole game through finding everything again, just to get one mine? You couldn't put a challenge reset in the patch? or atleast show the locations for this one challenge, so even if they're glitched we MIGHT be able to find them?
Awesome Eidos, thanks a bunch.

This bug has drove me NUTS, I've gone over and over different videos showing locations of the Mines for Mine Sweeper Challenge, all are there but one. 9/10 Complete 99% complete, screwed my game and it's not going to be fixed?

http://youtu.be/jaJkqRXCd50?t=4m Is the mine that's disappeared, 4 mins into IGN challenge guide.



So basically play the whole game through finding everything again, just to get one mine? You couldn't put a challenge reset in the patch? or atleast show the locations for this one challenge, so even if they're glitched we MIGHT be able to find them?
Awesome Eidos, thanks a bunch.

The last mine is doable, but you need to look for it. It is there but it's difficult to see and hit. Have a read of the posts in this forum to help. Also, if you keep fast travelling back you will eventually get there when its sunny and calm which makes it easier.

I've done all of them apart from one that "should" be very easy to find. I've finished the game so it's not night/stormy. The mine just isn't there.

... This is a rare issue, ...

Issue #1: Essentially, given enough time or fast travel one specific explosive mine near the Endurance wreck may pass through a nearby rock wall in the Beach Hub, obstructing it from view. ...

We’ve found a fix that will this from happening in Title Update #3, but unfortunately can’t resolve the issue for those of you who have already encountered it. ...

Issue #2: This relates to a different mine at the furthest tip of the Galleon looking out at the ocean. A small number of PC players are reporting it as invisible. ...

Could you please give us an update on this issue? Sadly it seems not to be that rare and imo it is a really serious bug (any bug that hinders you from completing the game should be considered serious), as it totally destroys the fun in proceeding as you know you won't be able to get 100% AND all trophies (PS3) without replaying the whole game having again to search for all the challenge artefacts (which is no fun if you already did this before) just because of one buggy mine. :(

I think a patch should be possible. The patch should just do this:

- fix boundary glitch
- reset position of all mines that haven't been collected yet

alternatively and probably safer the patch could do this:

- each time the level is loaded reset position of all mines that haven't been collected yet

I have this same issue and it's driving me nuts. Could we please get a patch like the poster above said? It shouldn't be too difficult.

i think the trick is to get that mines ASAP when you get onto shipwreck beach. search for them before starting any other missions. like before being able to shoot ropes into walls, get the mines first as far the area as possible. then just before getting the tool for Jonah, on the bridge. I saw mine and shot them despite a few of them not showing up on instincts mode. Didn't have problems of invisible mines on my 2 tries of the gameplay.

I know loads of people are having an issue with the minesweeper challenge, but am only adding this because the mine I'm missing doesn't appear to be either of the two problems listed so far.

I got both of the hard to see mines over by the galleon and the last mine didn't drift over to the rocks so I was able to shoot it in it's proper place.

The mine I'm missing is the one directly underneath the tower. It's just not there. I know for certain that I never shot it during the story and I remember getting all the other mines. It's just not there at all. Like an earlier poster, it's the 7th mine on this video. Playing on the PS3.

This is the very first game I've EVER tried to complete to 100%, so am gutted that I can't due to one mine! Has anyone else had success with finding this mine?!

Same problem. Is there any release date of the ps3 patch?

While this has certainly been fixed, I would like to point out that while this particular mine is now OK here:

You cant target it or destroy it from here:

This is horrible. What is? The bug? The fix? The challenge?

Anyway, just wanted to report that I 'solved' the problem by completing a full second playthrough, again with 100% (all docs, all relics, all gps, all challenges). This time I went to the beach and collected all mines right away, no problem whatsoever. Thank god this is such a good game, otherwise it would have been really annoying :-)

For those who it might concern: You do not have to complete all challenges again only to collect the 'did all challenges' trophy (don't know the exact name right now). If you had all challenges but one challenge before than it is enough to finish only the missing challenge on the 2nd playthrough and the trophy will pop up).

Out of curiosity: did the recently released 1.03 patch reset the mine positions (i.e. fix the problem even for those who already experienced it)?
