Scavenger's Den


After the wonderful cutscene Lara ends up in an uncomfortable position to say the least.

From where you are - it would seem impossible to get out - but there's still always a way. Move left and right to gain momentum and Lara pushes a body bag which is nearby into the fire. Then you need to move left and right for momentum again and make sure that you hit Lara to the beam which is on fire to the left so that she can come loose.

After falling down keep hitting "E" to pull out the iron bar from Lara's stomach. Move ahead to the dead girl who's bound in the air ahead. To the right of the dead girl is a [[TORCH]]. Pick it up and move ahead to the end and hold E to ignite the rubble on fire. Move ahead and you will come into a supplies room after you squeeze in between a narrow gap.

Now hit Q to bring out Lara's Survival Instincts and look above to the left. Move ahead to the fire on the right and light your torch and go to the left and climb the ledge. Light the cloth here on fire and watch the explosion. Move ahead and some guy grabs Lara's feet. Keep hitting left and right movement buttons to escape him and move ahead. Go thru the water and out the cave into the more open area. Your Torch extinguishes here but move thru the water fall here.

Light the fire on your torch and hit Q and you will see two fire poles glow ahead -


Light both the poles on fire and the cage goes up revealing a path. Go on the wood path and you will reach another cave near which you are prompted to push it. If you push it using F then nothing will happen. But look to the left from here and you will see tha cage which had come up earlier. Jump into it and you'll see that some barrels fall into the cage which you can push. Go there and light the barrels on fire and then push the cage and this will open the path ahead.

Go thru it and jump from the edge when you come across gaps. Move ahead and you will come across the guy who was trying to pull you from earlier. Keep tapping left and right and then hit F to kick him when you see the prompt on the screen. If you don't do that on time then well, see what happens. You'll suddenly slide down and will need to climb up. Keep mashing left and right to walk up the slope and when you see a rock coming tumbling down. Hit left or right to move to the sides and avoid the rock. Once you go up, you will have come out onto the shores.


Coastal Bluffs


- Search for Traces of other Survivors

Move ahead and you will come onto a tree which fills a gap to form a questionable bridge. Move very slowly on it and if Lara is loosing control on one side then hit the opposite direction key to stabilize her.

Once you are on the other side, move ahead and jump the gap and you'll soon come to a used camp fireplace where you'll see a cutscene.


Coastal Forest (South)


-Search for Food

Move ahead and you will come across a long since dead body hanging from a tree with a bow attached to it. Move ahead to the small shack and collect the arrows to it's left and climb up the shack. Jump the gap from on top of the shack to the stone platform ahead. Then go right towards the dead body and hit the right button to reach out for it. After you get the Bow pick up the arrows which are to the right here near the tree trunk.

Then get back up on the small shack and continue jumping right till the path ends and you will find another set of arrows here. Move right onto the narrow tree bridge and cross it. Here you will spot Deers. Hold right click to bring up the bow and left click to pull and release. If you don't want to release an arrow after pulling then release the right click. Shoot the Deer once or twice to kill and and look where it fell and remember the place.

Go to the Deer and collect it for XP. You can now hunt animals to gain XP points so be on the lookout for the different animals around. Go back to the campsite when you are done here.

You'll get a radio signal from Roth who asks you to come to him so that the party can gather at one place. Go back to the jungle and you'll see that the shack which was closed earlier is now open.

Go in and down the ladder. Hit Shift to jump down. Move thru and you'll come into a room. Here, salvage the two boxes which are to the left and right on a table. One of them has a [[RELIC]].

Now go light your torch on fire and move left and use instinct. You should be able to see some objects you can burn to the left of the room here. Burn them and go in to find a pry bar. Come out and pry open the next door and go through. Move thru the water and come up on the other side. Soon you'll meet Sam and a new friend.

After Lara wakes up, she has a little Wolf killing to do - you'll get lots of time for it so no need to worry.


Climb the wooden platform near the river and leap over to the other side, then climb the wall to the reach the top of the rock. You'll find [[ARROWS]] and a [[GPS CACHE]] here.

TOTEM - Here's how totems in the game look like -


Look for a [[#1 TOTEM]] hanging from the tree you found the bow in. There are ten of these in the forest, and to get them you'll have to shoot them with your bow.

Spot the overturned truck nearby the river next to where the dead body which had the Bow drops and jump in to find the [[DOCUMENT - #2]].

You can spot [[#2 TOTEM]] on top of the small rocky hill which is hanging on the south side of the small rocky hill in the southwest part of the area, south of the river.

Following the river down, look for a very small wooden walkway adjacent to it, right before the tiny waterfall; the walkway is to the right/south side of the river. On it you'll find a [[GPS CACHE]].

Move around this walkway and you should be able to spot [[#3 TOTEM]] hanging from a tree near this rock hill.

There's a [[#4 TOTEM]] hanging underneath the platform adjacent to the tree bridge. This one is located in the northeast part of the area; look for the tree bridge to the north of the river (look into your map).

A [GPS CACHE] can be found near the small waterfall at the end of the river.

Return to the camp and go back to where you first came from and ook at the trees to the left and spot [[#5 TOTEM]].


Coastal Forest (North)


- Catch up with Whitman

To the left on the desk is [[DOCUMENT 3]]. Now, light your torch on fire and burn the salvage bag which is hanging to the right of the campfire. You'll get a box which you can salvage. When you salvage enough boxes, you can upgrade your weapons. Now, go along the path and be careful because there are going to be a lot of wolves. When you hear them growl, just hit shift to dodge them and shoot them with an arrow to kill. Go to Whitman who is in front of a ruin and soon you'll be left to search for more salvage.

There a crate to the right from the bottom of the stairs which you can salvage and apart from that go left from the temple and you'll come to a bridge you need to jump to get to the other side. Here you can find three more salvages. To the left from the bridge on top of a high place and to the right from the brige there are two. Just use your instinct to highlight them.

Go back to where Whitman is and you'll find a campsite too. Light it and upgrade the pry and use it to open the door. Follow Whitman inside and watch the cinematics.


Going down the stairs from the base camp, move right/south onto the rocky path to find a [[GPS CACHE]].

Cross the tree (or approach the bridge from the other side) to reach a platform and find the [[DOCUMENT - #1]] on top of the crate.

[[RELIC - #2 NOH MASK]] can be found underneath the nearby bridge. This is in the southeast part of the area(look in your map).

You can find [[#6 TOTEM]] hanging underneath the destroyed bridge which is close to the waterfall on the right side of the area.

From the platform, you can jump on top of the beam of the high bridge arch and move over to reach a tree outpost that contains the [[TREASURE MAP]] of the Coastal Forest area.

There's a [[#7 TOTEM]] hanging underneath the bridge in the center of the area.

The [[#8 TOTEM]] is hanging in a tree just to the left/west of this bridge, across the brook.

[[DOCUMENT - #2 ENDURANCE CREW: (SAM: FILMMAKER)]] can be found left of the statue. 

[[#9 TOTEM]] is hanging from the shrine roof to the right.

Keep hugging the west wall while moving north from the shrine to reach a small cave. Inside is [[RELIC - #3 NOH MASKS ]].

East of this cave is a fallen tree, and just east from that is a stone platform with a [GPS CACHE]. 

You can find the [[DOCUMENT - #1 ENDURANCE OFFICERS]] to the left of the main gate of the temple.

The last [[#10 TOTEM]] can be found hanging to the right of the temple gate, just past the burning barrel.


Mountain Temple

You'll soon come across some Russian Bandits who take everyone captive. Once you gain control of Lara again, move ahead behind the low wall and stay there. Use your instinct and also stay behind cover for long enough so that enemies who are moving can move along clearing a path for you.
Keep moving up and around the obstacles and enemies. Once you reach the top, go right into a small shack (use your intuition to find it.) How ever Gregory here will find you and ask you to come out. This is when a sequence of QTE takes place. First hit F then E then shoot him. If he falls on you then continuously hit the left and right buttons and then keep hitting E and then shoot and his brains blow out (quite literally.)
After Lara Picks herself up, go ahead and keep moving along the open path till you get to the top. You'll encounter a couple of enemies here in slow time. Shoot them and give them headshots for additional Xp.
Move ahead and into the house. Force the door open and inside, kick the boarderd part of the wall and go out. Jump across the gap and move ahead. Here you will see an enemy talking to another one on an elevated platform ahead. Take out your bow and shoot him in the face if you can. Loot him and climb the platform. Collect the ammo here and move ahead and jump across the gap and Lara holds on to a ledge. Move to the right and climb up and you'll come to two enemies. You can use your Bow or Gun, Bow is preferred because you'll get more XP on headshots and silent kills. Take out the first one and then the other will be alerted but give him one in the face and you'll see a third enemy come down a rope ladder ahead, shoot him once to kill him -
Climb the rope and keep going till you get to a campsite. Light the fire for some rest and to hear [[LARA'S JOURNAL]]. Jump into the water and go near the waterfall to find [[DOCUMENT 1 DIARIES OF A MADMAN]].
Go ahead where you'll encounter more enemies. Kill them and go into the open hut to the right. Here you'll come across some burnable stuff and a lantern lit near them. Use your gun or  Bow to shoot the lantern. Move in and you can now perform stealth kills. Approach an enemy from behind and hit F then continously tap E to kill him.
There are more ahead so just keep killing them and keep going till you come out to a Zipline-
After landing, move ahead and Lara climbs a narrow gap in between walls. Keep going and soon you'll find Roth in a not so well condition....
[[DOCUMENT - #1 CONFESSIONS OF A SOLARI]] can be found to your immediate right as you drop down the zipline. It's on the crate next to the arch leading to the next area.
An [[XP BOX]] can be found by dropping down to the left of here, where the river is.
On the southwest side you can either head downstairs or scramble up a wall. Head downstairs first and search inside the building to find [[RELIC - #1 EDO PERIOD FANS]].
Jump on the rocky platform near the rock wall and face the building to spot another [PYROMANIAC LANTERN #3] hanging from the roof.
You can spot the [[PYROMANIAC LANTERN #4]] hanging from the corner of this building's roof.
[[RELIC - #2 EDO PERIOD FANS]] can be found by going around the building and entering the second floor.
Leap over to the platform (with roof) to the far south to find an [[XP BOX]] and the [[PYROMANIAC LANTERN #5]].

Mountain Village

Head into the village and you will first come to a statue. Light it and you'll complete 1/5 of the [[ILLUMINATING STATUE]]. 
To the left of the statue, you can climb onto the first hut and this is where you can start exploring the whole area from and you will also find the [[GPS CACHE]] here.
You can find a [[GPS CACHE]] by searching the bottom left of the large waterfall.
From the platform with the small cart, jump on top of the roof which has a statue below it, then leap on the roof of the building on the other side to find a [GPS CACHE].
Make your way over the roofs and jump on the crate with rope tied around it. There are two crates; this is the one hanging highest, close to the larger building. Jump inside this building to find [[ARROWS]].
Search the corner (near the closed door with rope tied around it to find [[DOCUMENT - #1 ANCIENT SCROLLS]]. This is on the first floor, room to the left.
There's [[ARROWS]] and [SALVAGE] in the other room on this floor. Head downstairs to search below this building, where you'll find some [[SALVAGE]] and [[RELIC - #1 SEMPER FI]].
Go up to the second floor to find a [[SALVAGE BAG]].
Climb to the roof and make move to the left side to find a bird nest with some eggs inside; this is [[EGG POACHER #1]], part of a collectible.
The grassy ledge left from here contains a [[GPS CACHE]].
Drop down to the north side of this building and search the tombstones south of the left lantern to find a well-hidden [[GPS CACHE]].
Some [[ARROWS]] can be found on the path right of the large building, which leads back down to the bottom of the area.
Climb the airplane and make your way over the wing to find some [[SALVAGE]] near the tree trunk with rope tied around it.
You can find a well-hidden [[SALVAGE]] crate on a small platform next to the tree that got hit by the lightning as you moved on the airplane.
Ascend the mountain by hopping over the platforms after moving through the plane, then move over and jump to the hang-beams above.
Once you reach the wolf den where the current objective marker is, search the bottom right of the waterfall to find a [[GPS CACHE]]. 
To the right here is also the entrance to the first tomb, although you don't have the proper gear to enter just yet but you'll get in in a bit.
Now go to the objective marker and into the Den. Keep going, light a fire and move into the area to find the Pack.
Now as you go back a wolf attacks you. Kick it at the right time and then hit left and right and then kick again and shove it with E and keep hitting F to kill it. Now collect it's meat and get back to the camp via the zipline outside the cave here. Talk to Roth who gives you a new item - the Climbing Axe.
-- Reach the top of the Falls


You can now go back to the tomb which you found earlier. If you don't know where it is then use the Climbing Axe to climb the rocks which you can see if you use your instinct (Q). Then from the bottom of the waterfall the cave is to the right bottom (Read aboe in the collectibles section if you are having a lot of trouble).
Inside the Tomb - You'll come to the main chamber soon where you see a large box to the right which can be pushed and when you push it the box with the  three corpses to the left goes up. You will need to push the large box and quickly jump onto the other box and then quickly jump across onto the platfrom. When you are on the platform, light the torch on fire and jump back on the box with the 3 bodies. Burn them and the box becomes lighter. Now, go back to the large box and push it and then get back to the smaller one which is now high up and jump across onto the platfrom to the left and you'll find the loot of this area.
You will find a [[TREASURE MAP]] which will reveal all the collectibles in this location so you won't have a hard time finding them.
Go back out and continue your ascent up the mountain using the rocks - again use your Intuition Q to know where the climbable rocks are. Soon you'll come to an area where three guards are talking. Two to the left and one to the rigth. Wait till they finish talking and the two to the left talk to each other. Then shoot them with the arrows and go to the left and climb up the hut and jump onto the large box haning ahead with the rope around it.
-- Find the Bunker

The rest of the area is just climbing and moving so just keep going and soon you'll get to a Zipline. Once you come off the line you'll fight three guys in total. Kill the first two quickly and then third one comes with a sword. I'd suggest using the pistol for this fight. The left guy has some molotovs so be very careful. Move out to avoide getting burnt and he has to be your first target. After that, keep going ahead and you'll come to a campsite soon enough.

Base Approach 

Go ahead and thru the water and you'll find [[[DOCUMENT - #2 CONFESSIONS OF A SOLARII]] on the desk ahead. You can also hear two guards talking about Mathais. Move around the corner and turn the valve to stop the poisonous gas. Go thru the narrow crack and collect the Salvage here from the box. You can see two guards moving an explosive barrel if you look around the corner of the walkway. You can shoot the barrel when they are close to it to kill them both and the lookout for the third one who comes running down the hall.
To your right here is a restroom which leads to another room with an [[XP BOX]] which is next to a fire barre. In the hall which is to the side you can find a salvage locker. Light your torch at the fire barrel and go into the room which is to the left of the stairs. You will find a [[NON_BELIEVER BANNNER 1]] that you can burn. Go on the stairs and kill the guard who attacks you. Go across the debris here and then up the wall to reach the generator room. You can light up the [[NON-BELIEVE BANNER 2]] which is to the left as you enter here. Throw one of the lanterns against it to burn it down.
Go thru the hole which is above the glass and turn the valve here. Head back thru the hole and hurl one of the lanters thru the hole to blow up the entire place. Go to the hurt guard and take his rifle and fire up the [[NON-BELIEVER BANNER 3] in the corner of this room. In the next room you can find some ammo for your rifle and a [[GPS CACHE]] in the corner and also do not miss the [[DOCUMENT 1 - WARTIME INTELLIGENCE]] on the desk.
As soon as you get in the next room you'll be ambushed by the enemy and the game goes into slow-mo. Kill a couple of them and take cover behind the blue barrel. Try to use your rifle here as it makes things much easier. Keep moving as molotovs are hurled at you and keep killng them. After all of them are dead look around and you'll find a [[GPS CACHE]] to the right behind some pipes. The adjacent room has some stuff and [[NON-BELIEVE BANNER 4]]. Now, to go to  the camp, go to the entrance of this room and use the fallen door to go to the upper walkway.

Go thru the hall you come to and kill the guard. As soon as you come into the control room a cutscene is shown. You can find [[DOCUMENT 2 - DIARIES OF A MADAMAN]] on the desk and [[NON-BELIEVER BANNER 5]] among other stuff. Go thru the crack straight ahead to get to the next place and keep moving.

Base Exterior

You can see the Base Overlook camp fire just ahead. Go across the bridge and a QTE takes place. Keep hitting left and right and hit F at the right time to drop the enemy down. Go ahead and hide behind a low wall and kill them one by one. As you go ahead more enemies drop down from the building to the right.
Go back a bit if you have to and kill the ones who have the melee weapons. Kill the rest of them and also the ones who are on the building. There are going to be a lot more enemies as you move around the corner and also inside the large building ahead. You can find an explosive barrel on the upper floor - hit it to blow them up and the next set of enemies come by.
You can find a [[GPS CACHE]] behind the truck near the bridge in the beginning. And move to the first building to find some handgun and rifle ammo. Climb the building on it's left side wall and you'll come to [[RELIC 1 SENSHI ELITE]]. Go onto the first floor of the large building which had the explosive barrel and youll come to [[DOCUMENT 4 DIARIES OF A WOMAN]]. You will also find an [[XP BOX]] nearby.
Go ahead and you'll come across more enemies who are on the building ahead and they keep dropping down. Kill the ones who get too close to you and also the ones throwing the molotovs ahead. You will also see enemies come at you from the Zipline - shoot them once to kill them and go down and the Big Guy comes out. He an be very easy to kill - just hit a direction key with "Shift" to dodge him and then use your rifle to shoot him when he is vulnerable. If you shoot his shield then it's going to be a waste. You can find [[BOW PART 1]] if you loot his body.
Go into the building ahead and head upstairs. If you open the closed door here then you'll get [[RELIC 2 - SENSHI ELITE]]. Go up to find the Radio Tower camp. You can find the [[DOCUMENT 3 - DIARIES OF A MADMAN]] next to this camp. Slide down the rope here and you'll get the [[TREASURE MAP]] of this area.
Use the rope to the right to get to the Radio Tower and climb it all the way to the top. You'll then get to tune the radio. Use the rop to go down and near the fuel tanks. Tuen the valve here. Inside the nearby building is the [[FIRE STRIKER]] which can be used to light a fire anytime you want to.

Set fire to the tanks to get a cutscene and a chase sequence. While sliding, move Lara slowly without hittin the sharp obstacles along the way. In the end, get a grip and climb up and jump to the walkway to the rigth to end this part.

Cliffside Village

Go to the other end of this place using the Trapezees, and jumping and running around the collapsing stuff. In the last house you'll face another riot shield enemy. You can find the CLiffside Vista camp ahead and you will listen to [[DOCUMENT 4 LARA'S JOUNALS]] when you sit near it. Go thru the tunnel and as you move upstairs be ready for a shootout. 
When Lara is upside-down then shoot the enemies and then the pulley to get back down. You'll now get a new piece of equipment - Rope which can be used to pull fences and grills. First, pull a pillar from under the cabin and another fight starts now. Your highest priority should be the molotov throwers. Kill the guys on the walkway next and the rope arrows can be used to break the fences they are hiding behind.

Look for an [[XP BOX]] on the ledge across the river. Pull the crate with the rope around it closer and climb it. Then follow the walkway until you reach a river. Stand near the rope attachment spot and shoot and arrow into the rope ahead of you. Keep going and destroy the door with the rope arrow and go to the end of the tunnel to meet up with Roth again.

Mountain Village (High Region)

You are near the Village Overlook campsite now. Make a rope way and slide down and hide behind the fence. You can wait for the guard to move away and then kill the remaining two. Inside the building you can find the [[RELIC 2 - KANPO HERBS]] on a desk. If you look inside the building then you are liable to found the [[BOW PART 2]].
Once you come out, go up the stairs and light up the [[ILLUMINATION STATUE 3]] Slide down the rope and look below the hut for a [[GPS CACHE]]. Enter the hut and jump across the platform to the north and light the [[ILLUMINATING STATUE 4]]. Make a rope way to the tree trunk in the platform near the waterfall.
Make a ropeway to the north-east of the hut to continue. When you are climbing the last wall, wait for the conversation of the guards to end and move into the tunnel to the left. You can also find the [[ILLUMINATING STATUE 5]]. Kill the two guards and make a rope way to reach the platform leading into a tomb.


Go thru the cave and you may find the [[RIFLE PART 1]] here. Make your way into the windy tomb and go to the camp to make a [[RECURVE BOW]]. Go over the bridge to get to the main area of the tomb -
First close the shutters and move the valve which is in the middle here. After the first shutter breaks open and immediately turn the valve. Climb the  platform and leap onto the platform which is attached to the ceiling. Jump onto it when it comes close to use and use the wooden beam to reach the platform.
As usual you'll find a map here and [[HANDGUN PART 1]]. 
Once outside make a ropeway to the left side platform and light the [[ILLUMINATING STATUE 6]]. Drop down to a lower platform to find the [[EGG POACHER 3]]. Walk over the tree bridge to find the [[RELIC 2 - SEMPER FI]]. Go back to the illuminating staute and make a ropeway to the platform with a hut to the east to find a document - [[DOCUMENT 3 ANCIENT SCROLLS]].

Make a ropeway to the closest platform to the west and go up the wall to find [[DOCUMENT 4 ANCIENT SCROLLS]]. Look down the nearby rope pole to find the [[EGG POACHER 4]]. Make a ropeway to the platform to the left and move over to get to the [[ILLUMINATING STATUE 7]] on the other side. From the southeast platform make a ropeway to reach the Pilot's smoke signal.

Mountain Pass and Chasm Monastery

Slide down and make  your way to the Pass. You'll come to a cave soon where you get a new camp. Move ahead and when the QTE starts, hit left and right and then go to the hole and to the end of the tunnel.
Chasm Monsatery:
You're now going to get one of the most important weapons in the game. There'r some shotgun shells next to the corpse nearby and the [[TRENCH SHOTGUN]] is at the end of this walkway. Blast thru the wooden barricade and jump over the gap. Head throught the crevice at the end of the hall on the wall above you and you'll come into a tomb. Now you need to use the rope arrow to pull the bad away from the gate to make a path. As you go thru the tunnel, you'll come to the Sheltered Alcove camp. Take out the barrcade ahead and move across the walkway and the ledges and to the next building.

You'll come to some enemies - don't listen to them, just kill them and you have a heavy enemy here - the shotgun proves more effective in killing this guy. If you are short on shells then you can find some at the top left corner next to a pillar. Go upstairs and kill the enemy here. Open the shutters on one side and move the weight with the rope arrow so that the pillars get smashed. Close the shutter and open the ones on the other side and repeat the same. Some enemies might just show up here so kill them and one of them should drop [[BOW PART 1]] open both the shutters after that and pull the weight once mroe to make the BELL come down. Now, run thru the hall and leap onto the rope way. When you are sliding you'll need to shoot barricades and a cutscene shows.

Mountain Village (Final Tour)

Sit at the next camp to listen to [[DOCUMENT 5 - LARA'S JOURNALS]]. There's the [[ILLUMINATING STATUE 8]] on the left beside a waterfall. Now go right along  the river and you'll find a lot of salvage here and probabaly [[RIFLE PART  2]] You can find a large salvage crate in one of the huts here and a [[GPS CACHE]] directly across it.
Go back to where you started and make a ropeway on the left of the bridge to go to a path which has a [[GPS CACHE]] on the far end. Jump onto the arch here and reach the platform that has the [[ILLUMINATING STATUE 9]].
Make a ropeway to get to the big hut and you can pick up [[GPS CACHE]] to it's right. Blast the barricade and go in for a cutscne. Climb to the upper floor by moving the bell and use the beams and you'll get [[XP BOX]] and supplies along with [[DOCUMENT 5 ANICIENT SCROLLS]]. Destroy the barricade on the ground and you'll find a few things here. You can now explore the last part of the  mountain village.
You ought to start with the [[XP BOX]] near the camp. You can also pick up the [[DOCUMENT 2 ENDURANCE OFFICERS]] next to the campfire.
[[XP BOX]] near the hill and the [[LARGE SALVAGE CRATE]] near the main plane wreck. Inside th wreck is a [[XP BOX]]. Move over the debris in the northeast to reach a platform that has a [[GPS CACHE]] near a tree.
Scramble up the wall to find a [[SALVAGE BAG]] above. The house to the east which has  [[XP BOX]] and [[RELIC SEMPER FI]]. You can spot the large salvage box near the tail of the plain. Go up the wall behind the west house and you come to [[ILLUMINATING STATUE 10]]. From the platform here jump onto the top of roof of the western house to the find the [[EGG POACHER 5]].
Back from the same plaform you ought to go to the west side and past a tree  you'll come to a [[GPS CACHE]].
Go back to the main area of the village and move to the left of the wreck past the first statue you lit here and break the door at the end with the rope arrow You can find [[RELIC 3 KANPO HERBS]] in the room behind it.
Go back to the camp and fast travel to the Village Overlook base camp and go  down the rope and go inside the building. Look for the barricade and blast it out of the way to get the [[DOCUMENT 6 ANCIENT SCROLLS]].
To proceed the story, go back to the Village Plateau camp and make a ropeway to return to the right side building across the river. Jump over the gap to the right and move to the end of the path and go down the rope way.
Now to head down the mountain. Get a grip and wait for the guard to walk away. Hide behind the low fence you can find here and shoot the lantern to kill a couple of them and kill any stranglers.

Go down the right path and move up the arch for shotgun shells. You can move over the debris and kill the enemy below. Then, jump to the platform to the right and kill the other two who are near the wreck. Now cross the river to start your descent. Stay in the middle and avoid the spikes which come from the sides. Be careful and avoid the plane propeller and when you are falling down move away from the trees by using the directions.

Shantytown (North)

Just keep going ahead and slide down. To the left you can find [[SHOTGUN PART 1]]. Go thru the hole on the right and move to the end. Once you come out, hide behind the crate and silent kill the enemy on top of the building. Kill all the enemies here and spot the explosive barrel next to the stairs - shoot it when enemies are near it. Go upstairs and follow the straight path and you come to a beam - move over it to cross the gap and kill the two enemies and move around the corner and kill the lat one. You will come to a copter soon, use the rope arrow to pull down the back part and move in. You'll start a cutscene and now you can use fire arrows.
Kill the enemies below and when they move into the building, shoot the explosive barrel which is near the fence. You can be overnumbered really soon here so be very careful. Best to use your rifle here on the many explosive barrels you can find. Kill all the enemies and you'll come to the Helicopter Hill camp which is at the start at the far northwest area of the map.

Go thru the crevice and reach the next hall. When you come to the waypoint, you'll get a short scene after which go down the walkway. After a few steps look use animal instict and look thru the stalactites to spot the [[FIRESTARTER SACK 1]] to the left. Shoot it with a fire arrow. Go ahead and hide behind some debris until all cannibals go away. Shoot the gas ahead with a fire arrow to clear a way out.
Spot the shrine with the candles in the middle of the area to the left of where the cannibals were eating and get the [[RELIC 1 CEREMONIAL FAN]]. The first path to the left (SW on the map) has salvage at the end and you'll have a chance to kill a cannibal when coming back.
The next path has gas which you need to run thru and fight a cannibal. You'll find salvage and a [[GPS CACHE]] on the upper platform. You can also spot the [[FIRESTARTER SACK 2]] above the hall which has gas. Hit Q to highlight it.
Another [[GPS CACHE]] can be found if you follow the walkawy in the central cave and you can also spot the [FIRESTARTE SACK 3]].
After you are done collecting, go thru the gate on the right. Walk up the stairs and hide to the right behind a pillar when you hear the two guards approaching. On the right wall you can find a [[GPS CACHE]]. Go ahead and hide behind the fence overlooking the two guards who are playing checkers. One of them suddenly moves away, kill the both and go to the place where they were playing the board game to find [[DOCUMENT 3 ENDURANCE OFFICERS]]. You can find an [[XP BOX]] in the top right corner and then go up the steps leading back south.
There a [[TREASURE MAP]] of the area on top of the wooden structure which is at the bottom of the steps. Turn the crank before getting to the top and use a fire arrow on the gas. You will come to a camp at the very top near the altar and you can also get [[RELIC 2 CEREMONIAL FANS]]. Climb over the box which Lara kicked down with the explosion and you'll come to a walkway. Look below to spot three guards and some gas, shoot a fire arrow to wipe the out. Spot the  [[FIRESTARTE SACK 4]] hanging near the door where the guards were talking.
You can find [[GPS CACHE]] and [[XP BOX]] at the right end of the hall on the lower place. Look up and see the [[FIRESTARTER SACK 5]] hanging from the ceiling. Climb the walway to the left and move to the end and kill the guard silently and get the [[FIRESTARTER SACK 6]] which is hanging to the right. Move to the right of the walkway and kill the enemy with the flashlight who's at the back. You can also spot more enemies chanting and then shoot up a fire arrow in the gas to get them. You can see a couple of plants in the ritual area. There's a hidden area to the left of the Altar at the end of which are supplies and [[RELIC 3 CEREMONIAL FANS]] and [[DOCUMENT 7 DIARIES OF A MADMAN]] next to the altar.
Go up to find [[XP BOX]] and [[GPS CACHE]] next to it and a valve which makes gas leak. Open the valve and use the rope arrow to pull the cage closer and shoot a fire arrow and start running thru the walkway as the whole place starts to collapse till you get to the next area. You can spot Reyes in a cage and some idiot firing arrows at him. Now, kill the guard holding the flashlight to the right and then once the other two break-up and then kill them. A short cutscene follows...

There's a valve where one of the two guards was standing and shoot the gas and the explosion will have cleared the way. Go upstairs and jump over to the cage. Shoot the gas which is to the left the cage and then hit the second gas leak so the cage can move to the weight. Scramble to the right side of the cage and get on top of it. Jump over to the nearby platform and break the two valves and then shoot a fire arrow and your crew will finally be free. Jump over the yellow cages to get to safety. Open the double doors which you come to with your pryaxe to reach the fortress.
