Having failed about three times in a row, does anyone have any really good tips for conserving those precious seconds?

- Bike part: Right after you use the two ziplines to get to the train and bike, don't bother fighting the baddies guarding the bike. Run straight to it and use it.
- Magnetic turret (the first one, not the one you use in the boss fight): After you've powered up the turret and returned to the huge energy core, you're supposed to use the now working doors, discover the knight's shield and use the turret. Instead, jump onto the metal cage on the left of the energy core. Continue forward to the other end of the cage, closer to the door Amanda used. Now you should see a very narrow ledge along the wall. Jump ahead and slightly to the right so you land on the ledge right at the corner and immediately jump again onto the grate the mercs guarding the door are standing on (Lara will slip and fall if you try to stand on the narrow ledge). You can run right past them and through the door, they won't follow.

To save time on these time trials, i made a point of completing the last level, to get the 1 hit kills cheat and use it on the other levels. i found that way a lot easier


good luck

I know a shortcut in Kazakhstan. When you arrive the first time the magnetic gun, burst the explosive barrels on the left side of the gun. Then get a box and place it where the barrels were. Then get on the box and jump to the lattice. Lara might grap it only with one hand. You can jump to the other lattice and go right through the door where Amanda left. The magnetic gun at the bossfight should have enough power anyway you didn't power the core. Well, maybe I'll get some screenshots later.

edit: here are the screenies. Sorry for the bad graphic.

You can use the cheats, even if you don't unlocked them yourself. You only need a 100% savegame. Load a level and activate a cheat, like one shot kill. Get sure it works and then load your savegame again. Then you have the cheat still activated and you can use it.

Hi Greenkey2 :wve:

Just run through the first part of the level (before the bike ride) Kill the ones that you have to kill, but otherwise just run... And after you get the card from the Russian guy to open the door, gate, whatever… just run and open it. When you do that, everyone, except the ones that are pushing those petrol cans down towards you will disappear. I wanted the cans to kill the other ones, but I was disappointed when it didn’t work. If you just run through the level you should be able to do this level with no problem. (Try not do die, then you lose a lot of time!)
If this dosn't work for you, you could cheat, but there's no fun in that.

I don’t know if this helps you, but good luck! :wve:

I was going to suggest this, but you beat me to it. No sweat, though.

Congrats, Greenkey! :) How many timetrials are left?

navinloveslara, I'm glad that you knew it too. I got it from a german walkthrough so I didn't know if you guys knew that shortcut. I didn't find it on these forums.

Thanks guys! I never expected this much praise for one lousy time trial :vlol: :D :hug:

Congrats, Greenkey! :) How many timetrials are left?


Just England and Bolivia Redux :wve: I've tried doing the England one twice, but the first time I got called away halfway through on an emergency, and the second time we had a small power failure and the computer restarted :o :rolleyes:

Third time should be the charm :D
