View Full Version : Rope Ascender/Endurance Bug | OP updated March 19

Hello everyone,

We’ve had a few of you contact us through our social channels about a bug that halts progress in the later stages of Tomb Raider. For the time being we’re calling this the “Endurance Bug.”

This is a rare bug caused by a very specific traversal scenario or combat encounter. We have created a fix for this that will allow you to continue your existing saved game from where you left off and will not require you to restart the game. However until the patch is released, we advise those who haven’t encountered it to ensure you save the game regularly, making use of multiple saved game slots, just in case. Please know that our teams are working as hard as they can to produce a solution ASAP. Keep an eye on this thread for updates!

Date of Title Update #2: LIVE



1. Scroll down in the Pause Menu until “Change Save Slot” is highlighted.
2. Access “Change Save Slot” with the A button (or equivalent on other platforms).
3. Highlight an unused slot (or a slot that the user wishes to overwrite for a backup save).
4. Press the A button to confirm and dismiss the “Game Saved” pop-up.
a. If a save slot is chosen that already contains save data confirm that you wish to overwrite the existing progress by pressing left on the D-pad and confirming with the A button.
5. Dismiss the Pause Menu by pressing the Start Button.

1. Press the ESC key to open the Pause Menu and click on “Change Save Slot”.
2. Look at the three slots and choose an unused slot (or a slot that the user wishes to overwrite for a backup save).
3. Click on the slot to confirm saving in that slot, and dismiss the “Game Saved” pop-up.
a. If a save slot is chosen that already contains save data, confirm that you wish to overwrite the save data in that slot by choosing "Yes" in the pop-up.
4. Dismiss the Pause Menu by pressing the ESC key.

Bug specifics below:


This is a bug during the chapter “Gone Missing” near the “Cliffside Bunker,” in which Lara returns to the Endurance.
There are two ways this bug can be caused:

1) In the first scenario immediately after the basecamp Lara has to use her bow to fire into a rock face on an island in front of her. The bug can be triggered if Lara slides down the zipline and stops at the bottom, and then climbs back up towards the basecamp, and then slides down again a second time. If Lara then continues on to the Endurance and completes the combat encounter, the crate suspended upon the deck will not grapple, or will not move once grappled, therefore halting process.

2) In this scenario Lara encounters a large opponent and two Scavenger Archers, the former who she must engage in close combat. If Lara dies in a specific way (during a finishing move on the larger opponent) you may encounter this bug. Lara will respawn with the encounter over, and the crate suspended upon the deck will not grapple, or will not move once grappled, therefore halting process. The surest way to avoid the issue is to kill both Scavenger Archers that fight alongside the larger opponent before he is killed.

Here's a temporary work-around that has been found out by a fellow TR fan. You can use this method to get past this glitch while we're waiting for an official patch/Title Update :)

I'm currently reviewingTomb Raider for my website (Xbox 360 version) and I got to the place where Lara gets the rope ascender. I'm supposed to use it on the weight attached to the crane. When I do this, the crane moves but the weight stays stuck mid air. I guess that there are 2 weight spawned into the same place...

Anyways now I can't continue the game nor go back, I'm stuck there forever.

I found a youtube video of this bug: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BmRKZFZX84

help :(

Thats a bad one.

To avoid, do not go to the beach. the glitch starts after the beach on a big ship.
After finding your friends and they are fixing a boat, a guy asks you to get a tool on a boat for him. After getting that tool to him the next area on the boat after defeating a big black guy boss is this area glitch.
I have read that if you restart the game from the beginning it works OK.


Can you have multiple save slots on the xbox?

Chrnochan
2nd Mar 2013, 14:50
I have read the same, but at this point in the game (at 70-80% of the game's story) I really whish I don't have to restart it from the beginning!

yes, on the xbox the game offers 3 slots

No, that's rough. I will be making use of the game slots, methinks! If others have completed it without hitting the bug, then it must be specific to certain events or situations.

I hope that nobody else will face this bug, but I really hope that Crystal Dynamics can push a fix asap because apparently I'm not the only one that had this issue. Since the game isn't officially out yet it might not be a big deal right now, but I wonder what will happen next week...

Hi
I have the same problem and it really pisses me off. I also got about 80% of the game done and don't want to start over -.-...
If I press the instinct button, the gate on the floor glows up and the weight. If I move the camera during the instinct, the weight glows weird on and off. That is because there are actually two weights into each other. I think it is supposed to be one weight. But the other weight is preventing the real weight from crashing to the gate on the floor...

I really hope there will be another update before the game launches. There will be lots of people, which will play the game through at once.

This is how it should look like, at min 13:30 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-RxfwfSANk&list=UUiGvSWmPsWRSCO5BuwDexJg&index=5

Sorry for my english..

Can someone please answer a question or two for me please? How are people on the forums here playing the New Tomb Raider game? why so many bugs concerning the game? I rang my retailer today and was told that it will not be available till the 5th, but if some other retailers are selling it early the game will not work! so why is it available before it's due date? please some body please answer coz 55 Euro is a lot of money if I can't get past the first stage!

Thanks anyway, I will try it in offline mode, but I don't think it will work..

A workaround has been reported:

after the cable breaks walk around on the said platform whilst aiming the bow, at either one of the corners or left/right edges you'll phase through the floor

Got it, okay, here's what you do, use the rope ascender on the crate.
Next, go to the spot where the crate is SUPPOSED to be dropped.
Pull out your trusty bow, and aim it anywhere, next move around the side of the "breaking point" (the spot that is supposed to break when the crate lands on it)
Find the part around the area where Lara puts away and pulls back out her bow.
Once you find that place, lightly move the control stick to that exact spot and try to get Lara's falling animation.
After a few tries, Lara's full body should phase through the part of the boat.


Can anyone confirm that this works? Please post back asap.

A SECOND WORKAROUND HAS BEEN REPORTED:

i have a solution !!!!!!!! there are 2 crates overlapped take your mg and shoot with the grenade launcher on the crates in 90 degree. The grenade must land on the crate the then overlapped crate teetering out of the false crate When u see the crate is completely out of the other use your rope ascender on the now teetering crate and voila the crate makes the hole u need

Can anyone confirm this one as well?

I've just reached the Endurance wreckage, where you get the rope ascender, and you need to pull a block to fall through the floor so you can proceed. However, when I aim at the block the reticle flashes between white and red. When I manage to actually pull it, the arm swings round and doesn't take the block with it, but it starts glitching, and appears that there are two block in the same place, which doesn't allow either one to move from it's location and just float there. I'm unable to continue through the level.

Here's a pic of the section I'm speaking of - http://i.imgur.com/7Goce6U.jpg

After you get your rope motor in the endurance the next step is to pull the the metal weight on the crane towards a sealed hole. the bug in the ps3 game does not allow me that the crane pulls the weight but the weight is stuck in its original position till the ropes snaps and the weight is hanging in mid air. resetting does not help deleting the stored data and updating does not help either so now i can't move forward in the game help!

Hi,
after I reached the Endurance and killed the 3 enemies on the ship I got the bow upgrade and now I have to shoot and pull a big crate (?) on a crane to crash some sort of hatch to progress. But when I try to shoot the crate my hud flickers as if the game could not decide if the crate is pullable or not. When I shoot the first ropearrow with R2 it doesn´t hit but the second arrow shot will hit and trigger the QTE to pull the crate. When I finish the QTE the crane will move but the crate is stuck in free air and will not crash the hatch so I can not progress in the game...:mad2:
I already tried reloading the save game and restarting the whole game but it didn´t work. Did anybody also stumble upon this bug and knows some way to work around?

-Confirmed-

I tried the first work around. It worked.

In case you are having issues, here were my steps:

1. Shoot the Bundle being held up by the crane.
3. Use the Rope Ascender
4. Crane moves, bundle doesn't, noise and animation play.
5. Using the video that Tecstar70 posted, go to that spot and try what they are doing.
6. What worked for me (after trying what the video suggested) was equip the bow and have it out and zoomed in on the place that you are trying to move through the floor.
7. Move over the spot repeatedly with the bow drawn and zoomed in until you drop through the floor.

-worked

Good luck to all those trying still.

I do believe this is by far the first time I've ever experienced one of these so called bugs or glitches, but this will be a first for me.

First one was at the beginning when that dude sticks that ax through her chest, but was so miner, that it is barely a mention.

Second was in shanty town. Dido...

But by far the worst one I've had is on the Endeavor after beating that first dude and his two henchmen. Afterwards when I try to swing that crane and drop the box, well the crane swings but that grate stays floating in the air, and I cannot continue the game (even if reloaded to checkpoint), so I didn't and restarted on another save slot. That didn't end the bug and glitch-fest, another manifested where I was supposed to start that signal fire and there was no ground or valve. Everything was floating in the sky apparently. Thankfully though, it was easily remedied with a reload to previous checkpoint.

Another minor one appears after Roth kicks it. In that forest with goons with flashlights, some of said flashlights float all by themselves.

Major question, if I exchange the disk at the store for a new one will

(a) I get one?

and

(b) Will my saves work on it?

Hi guys, I wanted to post because I'm having a slightly different bug with the Rope Ascender and haven't seen anyone else quite having the same.

The first time I fought the miniboss from whom you get the rope ascender, the game failed to load the quicktime event so I had to restart from the checkpoint. The next time, it behaved perfectly and I killed him, took the ascender and had no issue using it to pull the crane and drop the crate to get to the lower deck.

But when I got to the room where I have to use it to free Alex, it let me use it once and then the bug started for me. It won't work any further so while it is a very similar bug, it happened later in the game for me, so I don't think the mini-boss event has any real bearing on it, else it probably would have happened immediately for me.

I too can not progress now, but at a different spot. I've tried exiting, relaunching and restarting from the previous check point, and all is a no go.

I am playing on the PC.

After I killed the big guy on the ship, I got the rope ascender from him. Then I use it with my bow trying to pull down the big weight, but after I pull it, the rope was detached from the weight and it doesn't fall down to crash the deck of the ship, WTH! Is it a bug or I've to use another way to do that?

I'm playing it on PS3, was playing like 66% in progress, 6-7 secret tombs were found, don't want to waste time and start it again, please help!

I have encountered the same issue. I have beaten the boss on cliffside bunker, acquired the rope ascender, but the box will not move when i try to pull it. I have beaten approximately seventy percent of the game on ps3 and now i cannot proceed. How did this get missed? I have been waiting for over 4years now like so many of us, only to be extremely disappointed. Please fix this so no one else has this same problem.

I did do a search, that's how I found this thread. Only 11 matches populated and out of those 11 only 2 were about this specific issue. If you know of a console work around it would be much appreciated if you could point me in the right direction. Thanks for your assistance.

Replaying the whole game is not an option. This needs to get fixed asap.

How such a glitch can go through beta-testing is beyond me. :mad2:

Exactly a game stopping glitch I feel is not something that should have been missed. It not something small that could be an honest mistake or oversight.
Now I am not saying they intended or knowingly did something wrong and are
Dishonest. I know we all make mistakes all of us are Human. But were these
Beta Testers sleeping were they poor Tester. Something is not right with the
Picture here. You are Correct having to start over is Utter fan Disservice.
Starting over is not an option it not even a solution it burying your head
in the sand hoping it will go away. I worked hard to get the collectibles ETC
other have and we are all in the same boat.

First of all thanks for Driber for getting me in the right section!

Here is my bug (ps3 version)

I've tried now many times this same spot but everytime it goes same way. Stupid me cause I didn't make a backup save on slot 2.

Well anyway I was pretty angry about this. After 60% gameplay I have to start all over again.

I am also experiencing this issue with the rope ascending on xbox360...its very frustrating. Is there any possible way to have a patch: to restart camps locations at the menu?...as for now I am stuck at cliff bunker. I cannot do anything about it due to auto save. there is no way out of this, and I would love to at least collect all of treasures and relicts from the past camps, until the patch is fixed...I'd hate to start over again.

Would be helpful to add more save slots (at least on the PC version) so that we could save more often without having to overwrite previous saves. 3 save slots is just not enough.

I hate that I am so far in the game... one that I have been unable to put down until this point... only to come up to this game breaking bug. I have tried the above work-arounds for the last hour, breakdancing on spot so that I can fall through the floor, but it has not worked.

The problem with multiple saves is you have to anticipate the glitch. For those of us who have been playing one save until this point, we seem to be out of luck. :(

I know it may seem like you shouldn't have to, but using multiple save slots is good practice for any game in case something happens. As well as bugs, your console could freeze or something else could go wrong. I agree that 3 slots isn't enough though. When I played TR:U I used about 10 manual save slots.

Hey guys. Anyone else playing on PC?
I'm having a major issue with the game at Cliffside Bunker.
Its the part where you fight a massive Russian type brute on a ship (he has 2 other guys with him who are easy to beat).

Basically the goal is to weaken him by shooting him in the face. Once he is temporarily stunned you're supposed to run in and finish him with your Pry Axe.

I've been stuck on this guy for days. I get to the point where I'm ready to finish him off. Screen says "Press F to use Axe", I hit him once in the leg then ready to finish him off by hitting him in the face, I keep pressing F but I never get a chance to finish him. He simply grabs me and throws me away. I've tried to finish him literally almost 100 times and never get a chance to finish him off by pressing F repeatedly.

Did anyone else have the same issue? This is seriously ruined my momentum in the game and wasted a lot of my time :(

I tried the work around for a solid 30 minutes the day I received the bug and was unable to fall through the floor. I just tripped around for a half hour. Also, the work around means that I am skipping content, and I don't exactly understand why I should be punished in such a way when this bug is clearly plaguing more than just a handful of people (based on this forum, several game faqs, and youtube).

You just need to time it right watch for the circles and when they line up hit your key... This has got nothing to do with nor a rope nor an ascender.

Hi Meagan,
unfortunately the bug is not solved. I've downloaded the game two days ago from the PSN to my PS3 and was asked to install the 1.01 update on first startup.
I triggered the bug by version 1 in your first post to this thread, the double zipline climbing.
Fortunately I had a backup copy in my PSN plus account, so that I did not loose that much time. BTW: the second glitch (gliding down through the closed cargo gate) did not work for me. So this glitch seems to be solved :thumb:

Hi, I've got a serious bug that may be connected with this, and it's preventing me from progressing with the game (PC).
In the combat with the big guy, when I have wounded him and have to get him with the climbing axe, the button to do so is completely unresponsive. I press the f button to start, then a popup comes up telling me to do so again, but the f button doesn't work at all. I can mash it all I want and it doesn't respond. :(
There are no graphical issues or missing popups, just the unresponsive action scene making it impossible to get past this guy.
While waiting for a patch, is there any cheat I can use to skip ahead to the next checkpoint?

OMG ... just registered on this forums just to report Option 3 for Endurance Bug ... and there is no work-around for it as far as I know.

I am 82% into the game (playing 100% completion on all challenges and collectibles) and for sure I know I triggered the bug since I moved up the first zip line from the rock back to Day Camp ... in order to burn the last banner for the challenge (noticed it when I was past the rope already)!

so here it goes (playing on PC), Endurance bug #3 - the mini-boss (aka "Russian Hulk") CANNOT GET KILLED! When the game says to press F for first finishing move (I know there are three) nothing happens no matter if I press F once or keep mashing it repeatedly, he just grabs Lara by the throat and throws her away ... and over and over again ...
Just to make it clear, I haven't died a single time when fighting him!

I literally put hundreds of shotguns shells to his head, very often smashing his knees when dodging so I can aim properly, ripped his face off 3-4 dozen times already at least when he's prepped for finishing and when I see the red dot on his body (Press F to Swing the Axe), I just cannot make the finishing axe swing, it's like I haven't pressed anything, the game just skips to when he holds Lara by throat in the air and throws her back.

I have no video, but can describe it only as the game skips to "Get away from me" and he holds Lara by throat instead of getting the mini-boss injured by a first QTE.

Already checked game cache integrity (Steam version) and it's 100% ok.

Please fix it ... :((( very sad ... wanted to finish the game this weekend ... so close to 100% completion goal! it sucks!

EDIT:
If I think about there was one more glitch I noticed on top of Cliffside Bunker. I couldn't loot one of dead enemies on top floor, his body kept burning, Instinct was showing it was lootable, but no such option was coming up when going over the body. Perhaps this bug started right there.

EDIT2: WORKAROUND!
lower the resolution to 800x600, then the game registers timed QTE properly!

IT WORKED! I was able to finish off the bastard. On a side note the timed QTE worked (but only in 800x600), mashing the F key still didn't work. Somehow lowering the resolution was crucial for game to register keyboard input at proper timing.

EDIT3, no bug, I am dumb LOL!
all right, finished it! AMAZING GAME! I literally loved it! :D

for the record, I had zero problems with QTE, first at Big Oni guy (took me a while to defeat that thing ... and his aide archers were a PITA) ... and then amazingly ZERO problems with Matthias QTE!

The only thing I did differently when playing in 1080p, was paying attention to when the exclamation mark shows up in middle of red circle, zero problems.

That also means, that initially I was doing it wrong (user error in my case) with the Russian Hulk and noticed the excalamation mark only after lowering resolution, silly me LOL.

I was playing the Steam version of this game.

Hello everyone,

We’ve had a few of you contact us through our social channels about a bug that halts progress in the later stages of Tomb Raider. For the time being we’re calling this the “Endurance Bug.”

This is a rare bug caused by a very specific traversal scenario or combat encounter. We have created a fix for this that will allow you to continue your existing saved game from where you left off and will not require you to restart the game. However until the patch is released, we advise those who haven’t encountered it to ensure you save the game regularly, making use of multiple saved game slots, just in case. Please know that our teams are working as hard as they can to produce a solution ASAP. Keep an eye on this thread for updates!

Bug specifics below:


This is a bug during the chapter “Gone Missing” near the “Cliffside Bunker,” in which Lara returns to the Endurance.
There are two ways this bug can be caused:

1) In the first scenario immediately after the basecamp Lara has to use her bow to fire into a rock face on an island in front of her. The bug can be triggered if Lara slides down the zipline and stops at the bottom, and then climbs back up towards the basecamp, and then slides down again a second time. If Lara then continues on to the Endurance and completes the combat encounter, the crate suspended upon the deck will not grapple, or will not move once grappled, therefore halting process.

2) In this scenario Lara encounters a large opponent and two Scavenger Archers, the former who she must engage in close combat. If Lara dies in a specific way (during a finishing move on the larger opponent) you may encounter this bug. Lara will respawn with the encounter over, and the crate suspended upon the deck will not grapple, or will not move once grappled, therefore halting process. The surest way to avoid the issue is to kill both Scavenger Archers that fight alongside the larger opponent before he is killed.

Hi there; this is my first post so please excuse me if I don't makes sense. I have hit the rope arrow glitch but not on the enhancer as others have eluded to but after Lara comes out of a cave and is looking for the pilot with the blue smoke flare. Every time I try to shoot a rope arrow, the arrow flies and hits it's mark but no rope to cross to the other side. I have followed the posts which extends as far back as March 2013. I have the most recent version on my PS3 but still cannot shake the bug. Your walk a rounds all have to do with the rope enhancer which I am not close to encountering. Since it is nearly a year since the bug occurred, will there be a fix or not? I see the Lara Croft game for the PS4 is coming out but I hope you don't forget us PS3 users still out here. Thank you

Tried the fix from the vid for about an hour never did find the loop hole. So Just stuck. When will there be a fix? I get tired of paying 60 to 70 bucks for these games when there are lots of glitches
