View Full Version : the city
How do you defeat the boss woman with the septor? She keeps blowing me sky high. I hear a hellicoptor somewhere, I try everything but nothing happens, rocket launcher, grenades, even harpoons. Nothing works. Please help
if you keep on going, somewhere up there is a switch which you throw, when shes standing on the bit wot the switch is connected to, and that fries her to a crisp.
DON'T SHOOT AT HER. She can't be killed with conventional weapons, so don't even waste any ammunition on her. Instead, climb up to the electrical panel and shoot it to electrify the walkway where Sophia will be standing. (Detailed directions follow.)
As you climb, Sophia will continue to fire energy bolts from her artifact. Expect to take some hits. Use med-packs as you go along. There are additional med-packs scattered along the ledges. If you're desperately low on health, go ahead and pick them up. But if you have enough to last, wait until later to get them. If you keep moving, Sophia won't be able to hit Lara as often, since she climbs as Lara does and doesn't fire as she's climbing. Once you' know where you're going, it's not all that difficult.
First, run up the ramp on the right side of the opening. Climb up onto the ledge, turn around and either take a running jump to grab the ledge on the left side, or grab the grate in the ceiling and traverse over to the ledge near the pink light. Climb onto the block on the left. Turn around and pull up onto the next ledge.
Run across the bridge to the right side and press the button to open a trapdoor behind you. Run back across the bridge to left side. Climb up. Turn left and climb to the next level (above the white light). Cross the bridge back to the right side. Jump and grab the yellow grating ladder and climb up. Crawl through the low opening to the other side. Turn around, climb up and, if you want to, crouch behind the angled block until you hear Sophia pause for a power-up. Then take a running jump across the gap to grab the ledge on the left side (above where you were earlier). Pull up and walk forward. You'll find the electrical panel on your right. Shoot it to turn on the current in the walkway and put Sophia out of your misery.
Now you can go for all the goodies. Just make sure not to step on that electrified walkway. There's a small med-pack near the crawl space, small and large med-packs on the walkway at the level of the ladder, and another small med-pack on the level where the button is.
To access the level's SINGLE SECRET, get on the ledge below and to the left of the trapdoor. Drop backwards and hang from the edge. Traverse to the left, then drop and grab the opening below. Crawl in for a rocket and another large med-pack. Safety drop out through the little opening and climb back up to the highest ledge on the right side (above the crawlspace).
Take a running jump from there across the gap to the building where Sophia was (just below the helipad). Climb up the cement ledges (near the white light). Drop down on the other side and use the button to turn off the current. Take the EYE OF ISIS to end the level.
Note you have to shoot the panel with Lara's pistols, these are the only weapons having effect on the fuse box.
Another tip: while Sophia is shooting the lightning bolts, find a ledge to hang from or a wall to crouch behind - this will shield Lara from direct hits, though the health meter may get shaved a bit from ricochets. Then, when Ms. Lee goes into re-charge mode, make your move. You should have just enough time to get to the next safe spot (Lara can usually survive a couple of direct hits before you need to burn a medipack)
Also, Sophie's first raccrochet after her power-up is VERY powerful! When she stops powering up, let her target you and don't go away before you see the raccrochets coming. Then dodge to the left or the right. Now if you still can't play it you're a con intégral.
Thanks a lot, that did the trick. Probably would have never gotten through it with out you!
Well, you'll meet the spider boss soon, and if HE doesn't drive you to madness... (Sophia still looked quite normal but _that_ guy!) ;)
