Tomb Raider: Anniversary Strategy Guide

Level 11: Sanctuary of the Scion

Big Water Puzzle

Jump in the water. Swim between the statues to the bottom. Pull the switch to drop the water level. Climb the foot of the left statue and head to the statue’s top. At the puzzle, shoot four scarabs on the wall so they match the directions etched on the floor.

Pull the switch behind the door to make the water go back up. Climb the ladder and go around the statue again. Swing across the pole to the side of the other statue and jump to the big gold switch. An underwater gate opens for a limited time.

Check the scarab positions on the floor underwater and do the second scarab puzzle. This opens another gate to a switch. Pull it to raise the water. Swim to the left statue. Above the switch you pulled earlier is a hole to swim up and out of.

Jump onto the lever, up to the ledge, then around the room until you reach the top of the statue. Climb up the left-hand wall using the ledges. Jump onto the gold switch between the statue heads to raise the water again and reach the exit door.

Level 12: Natla’s Mines

Find the Three Fuses

In the mine area, turn left and follow the track to a mine cart. Pick up the red fuse from on top. Go to the control room in the centre area and put the fuse in its place. A crate moves to reveal a passageway. Use the block to reach the passageway.

At the end, follow the platforms to one that looks too far to jump to. There’s a grapple point beneath it. Grab it, then swing back to the platform with the hut to get the green fuse. The blue fuse is in the area below – drop down to get it.

To get back out of this room, climb the pipes, jump to the side of the rotating machinery, jump back onto the sloping hut, then up the pipe. Round the metal case and use the handholds to reach the passage. Go to the control room to insert two fuses.

Press the yellow switch to smash the crate in the roof of the hut. Enter the hut, collect the pistols, shoot the glass to exit. Go to where you found the red fuse and shoot the glass in the higher room. Jump on the mine cart, enter the room, pull the lever and get on the mine cart.

    how exactly do you use the hammer to open the door?

    When you get to the big double doors you'll want to climb up the left side (because you can't climb up the right side) and go around to the right side via the poles in the wall over the entrance to that room and pull that weight down first, then jump down and back up the left wall and pull that one. Hint: They don't actually go back up once you pull them down. Any other questions my e-mail is
