LEGO Lord of the Rings minikit guide

The Black Rider [1-5]

Minikit #1: Turn around at the start of the level to find a glowing handle. Use the Uruk-hai to pull away the block, and drop into a secret area.

Hope on the rope in the northern part of the area to lower a platform.

Now hop up on the ledge near the platform with Legolas and cross over to where the minikit is resting.

Minikit #2: In the same secret area, a mole will be popping out of his various burrows. Use Legolas to shoot a target on the stalactite in the southeast. This will plug up one of the mole’s holes.

Use Sam’s tinderbox to burn away the growth on a stalactite in the southwest part of the room. This will plug another mole hole.

On the same platform where you found Minikit #1, use Gimli to smash a broken tile, plugging a third mole hole.

With all holes plugged, enter the dark cave using Frodo’s Glowing Phial to scare the mole. He’ll pop out of one last burrow, releasing a minikit.

Minikit #3: Just before the tree with the destructible door, you can walk behind this tree to find a minikit.

Minikit #4: When you reach the first stream, there will be a minikit encased in Mithril. Use the Berserker’s bombs to destroy the Mithril and claim your prize.

Minikit #5: During the duel with Sarumon, throw him into the stained glass door with the lock. This will cause a bird to fly through the shattered glass and drop off another minikit.

    This is obviously a walkthrough in free play mode. Doesn't help those in story mode at all!

    Sharon, you're right, but Tony found that free play is the best way to collect them all because it requires a wide array of abilities from various characters and allows you to play as any character you unlocked.

    The hardest minikit to get in any lego game is #10 in the black rider!
