How to kill amanda/beast in Bolivia Redux :p

Move a lot and keep firing your sword while auto-aiming, then when it stops and see the "!" sign, go to it and push some buttons (I don't know which, I pushed them all). I did this about 4 times and then it died definitely.

England: King Arthurs Tomb, After which you meet a monster thing in water, and have a lot of cages with mechanisms, how do I get past this beast? I know the cage mechanism can be grappled and then pulled and then the cage drops, then rises again, Lara appears to move slow on this level amd I keep getting killed.

I tried that, i went up to her pushed E and all she does is swing the sword at the thing again, it instantly stops doing this amanda figure thing, and has somewhat less health, but it regens anyways...

It is in the room where Zip is, go to the laptop on the floor, hit E and then a lock opens in the same room on the wall, it is in there :thumbsup:

You must grapple the chandeler by standing where the statue is, swing it hard. Then run fast and climb the sandbag so the bell goesup and the swinging chandeler will hit it :thumbsup:

Yes, E is the button that interacts with objects.

Do that at least 4 times, depending on the difficulty level you are playing in. After a while it won't come back to life :thumbsup:

This is the PC version of the game.. I am stuck by the lake after King Arthurs tomb....

I still don't get how to drop the last cage. The first three are pretty easy. Shot the big thingy until the monster looks at it, and then graple the lever and pull. The cage then drops onto the monster's head. When I try this with the last cage (the left one at the end of the "bridge") nothing happends. I shoot the thingy, the monster stops and looks at it. I graple onto the lever and I pull it. But, the cage seems stuck. It won't budge. I have tried all angles possible and being as close to the edge of the bridge as possible. Heeelp! :(

It really is about aligning yourself correctly and being fast, there is no other way I am afraid.

Yes, you must go back to the pool and climb to the place with the 2 movable statues. Turn them so they show their backs to each other. It will now reveal a tablet with a rhyme. It says which colors order you must use to activate the door in the library. Now go back to the library and you will see the books are moved forward. Don't just push them back but follow the order of the rhyme at the pool. Then in the library something will open and get the silver secret.

After this you will get another rhyme and get the gold by solving the rhyme :thumbsup:

I am on 97% of the game and I can only get into the small courtyard with the fountain. There are many doors inside still locked and also gates that are not open. Maybe they will never be opened but I think they will after 100% of the game is complete (meaning doing also all time trails, finding all secrets, etc). I will work on that this week :thumbsup:

Yes, those statues. You can rotate a bit more so they are fully back against back....grab them from the outer most side and rotate again.

BTW, you did find the dark passage in the library right? By using grapple on the right side of the library. In that dark passage you will find a rhyme about what to do in the pool with the statues, which I just explained :thumbsup:

Yes, we have to do all the levels again, collecting the few secrets we missed. Also doing the time trials unlocks stuff, but I just checked and you have to complete the entire Bolivia level in 12 minutes...and Engeland in 23 minutes....what is this, arcade F1 game? :rolleyes:

Try turning the "turnable" Statues on the secend balcon face to face, then there will be a switch, don't know, what it triggers.

Hmm, that's odd, it should grapple. I see you are aiming at it, so it must turn blue so you can instantly grapple. There are many bugs in the game, so maybe you are unlucky and have to start from another save point :(

This was Peru, right after the flashback right?

Yeah, I am right after the flashback with the insane monster... I restarted from the checkpoint before the last and got the same thing... In one previous level where I was in some city taking out guys from a rooftop I was supposed to grapple there as well but couldn't get it to highlight... So... Perhaps I am destined to levelup by save games :mad: If anyone has this problem and somehow gets it sorted out, I would very much appreciate any help you could provide.

True, that's because the platform is where you automatically are after you pick up the sword fragment (after the cutscene), but REZN8 posted it from that position, so I went there too to make it easier to explain :cool:

TRL Boss Strats (For anyone still having trouble)


Boss: Takamoto "Have I satisfied your curiosity now, Ms. Croft?"

Tip: This boss is fairly easy and there's no secret to killing him.

Strat: As soon as you start, run behind any statue, climb up to avoid getting hit by turrets and start shooting takamoto.

Attacks: Energy Sword - He does a low swing which you jump over, a normal swing which you roll out of the way and a straight down swing which you can avoid any way you want.



Boss: James Rutland "I bet you wish you could do THAT!"

Tip: This guy regenerates when he jumps up on the platform.

Strat: Shoot at him with whatever weapon you have handy. When you have a moment, shoot out the breakable rock on the middle bottom side of the platform that rutland occasionally stands on, so he can not regenerate.

Attacks: Melee Sword - Needs to get close to stab you. He also throws standard grenades at you.


Boss: Amandas Pet, Black Smoke. "Telsta Machinery Heaven"

Tip: Using the mounted gun in the middle, you can fend off 'Black Smoke' by using the two fire keys.

Strat: Enable the four switches on the walls, making sure to doge the "fire" that you see out of the ground. This doesn't hurt you when you're actually pulling the switch.
This will drop down the four 'orbs'. Jump to the mounted gun in the middle, use the tip above to fend off the boss and shoot the four orbs in quick succession backwards.
You can then move the boss using the gun into the orbs. When he starts to lose health, jump out and look above you and then use your rope tool to grab the artifact above you.

Attacks: Fire - Ground starts burning and then 'goes up'. Melee Swipe - Needs to get close to have a swipe at you.


Boss: Giant Dragon / Snake like creature. "I'm fearsome, I'm a huge ugly snake!"

Tip: He gets distracted fairly easily by bells.

Strat: Shoot the bells that you can target in any order. When you see the boss stare at them, put your weapon away then use the grapple tool on the lever in quick succession so it smashes his head.
Do this all four times to defeat this character.

Attacks: A 'spit' like manoeuvre and a melee swipe.


Boss: Amanda / Black Smoke. "Final Boss"

Tip: The non broken statues can block some of the red attacks. This boss also loves to hit you while you're down, typically in multiple, closely linked attacks.

Strat: Use the sword to attack as often as you can. When you lower its health enough, it falls to the ground. Quickly put your weapon away while running up to it and use the "interact" key to stab it.
The health will regenerate, but not completely. Repeat this four or so times to defeat this boss.

Attacks: Red Energy, lots of it.

Enjoy. :)

In the main-room, where you start, go upstairs ^^
At the end of each "corridor" are gold-faces. Go to it and press the action key (e).
But grapple the metal-poles at the glass-wall first, you have to swing fast to the other side and do it with the second "gold-face" also.

The most difficult for me was the one above the pool but that was only because I couldnt find the grapple, all i can say it to keep looking, use the binoculars, grapple and shoot things.

There is the pool, the gym and the one in the main room. On one side of the stairs, you need to grapple the stone to pull it out and get the bronze shield, on the other side, you need to shoot it, giving you the silver shield.

The gold one is in the same room after you do the riddles. ;)

You must grapple the chandeler by standing where the statue is, swing it hard. Then run fast and climb the sandbag so the bell goesup and the swinging chandeler will hit it :thumbsup:

I'm hardly going to speak for anyone else (I only hope they do), but yeah of course. :D

Tbh, I'm quite against getting single player only games (Waste of money, too short, blah blah blah), but there are three exceptions - Tomb Raider, Metal Gear Solid and the Hitman Series. :p

When it comes to MP and games strictly for console, I also always buy them. The rest I just borrow off mates or the local video store. :)

you need to climb up the tomb entrance wall on the left, make sure you've grappled the lamp so it is facing sideways, an the one one the other side is facing forward, then you should be able to climb up swing on the lamp, then grapple the highest lamp, which enables you to reach the right hand lamp, this then swings round and you can climb the whole way up.

one on top slide down the rope into the tomb, hope tht makes sense:)

Reposition the blocks again so that the chain on the left side is ok for you to jump on and then grab the ledge etc, going to the half open door and climbing it, finding the gold :thumbsup:

It is easy, just walk up to the statues, push your interact button and turn them. Make sure you position yourself at the point where they are holding the spears in their hands.

You must first place a box on the side close to the higher plane. Then while walking on that catapult, jump on the other side which will shoot the box up the higher level :thumbsup:

Boss: Amandas Pet, Black Smoke. "Telsta Machinery Heaven"

When he starts to lose health, jump out and look above you and then use your rope tool to grab the artifact above you.

The problem is here.. grapple does not stick to artifact.. but instead that machine only each time.. Is there way to do that.. I tried jumping.. and looking above.. everything.. but still.. :( :( :( :( :( :( :(
