View Full Version : Should she be MORE flexible?

Obviously, Legends controls are fluid but for sure, I think Lara should be even more "flexible" and fluid from the way she is.

When I mean flexible, I mean like drawing out her guns very easily when she does other things.

For example - today I recently discovered a new "trick" in LEGEND. While I was in Ghana (gee sounds familiar), I was dodging and shooting crazy from the rapid fire machine gun above and with all the other merc aiming to kill me. Boy did it look cool dodging everything 'cause it looked SICK how I wished it was filmed. THEN I accidently dived to my left (or right) and I clicked the DRAW button at the same time and she end up drawing her guns out while diving to her left.

GOOOOWW it looked SO COOL!!!

Here's what it looked like:

But it looked more like this (this is how you do it - may require practising) [PS2]:

IT WAS SOO COOL!!And she still has the enemy locked on.

But..'-_- what's sad is that she CAN'T SHOOT...I dunno if CD intended on adding that.

There were tons of other moves I found but they weren't officially listed or counted as a move. I believe having this move would be cool in the future Tomb Raider games or even this one! (Anniversary).

Other things she can do is dive and draw her guns out+SHOOT at the same time - in the first 5 TRs she can do it:D

I don't want to rant - just "give out" an idea of what else she should or can do!! I mean, you guys saw the second trailer- the way she dived in the air and shoot at the wolves (well, they don't have to make a move for actual gameplay like that) as she landed. I'd love to do something like that in the gameplay.

If anyone else has any more ideas that can make her more flexible, put htem here I guess.

EDIT: more detailed screen caps I caught myself from the demo

EDIT: Someone made a video on how you can do it with the SHOTGUN:D!!

a BIG THANKS to marcocatena;1607636 from the TombRaiderforums:D Hopefully CD will consider about this rather then making it so hard to do, they should really make the her more fluid:D

Wow, that's so cool. I have to go try. I hope they include that in TRA. I've always wanted Lara to be able to do that! :D

ahhh the instructions above aren't as accurate. DARRN...well maybe reading this might (I posted this one the other side of the forums).



Sorry I played it on the gamepad for PC (which is just like the PS2's) but I'll tell you to the best of my ability for the PC verison:(

Hold the "DRAW GUNS button" and AS SOON as you hear a CLICK (you gotta keep holding the DRAW GUN button),

Press ANY of the four directions at a slow pace along with the roll and jump button to dive to that direction with that SICK POSE:D
I doubt keyboard will work as well as the analog stick though:( Tried it myself.
*it's hard for me to describe what slow pace means...if only I knew how to record this or otherwise someone else can..sorry:(
If anyone else finds a better way in explaining this or even finds a easier way in doing this move, do please post:D

I'm just hoping CD would make her flexible. Even the first Lara Croft was.
