I was wondering and think it would be cool and somewhat helpful would be to have lara be able to shoot when she is climbing on a rope or ladder possibly while rock climb with little direction to shoot from as lara would fall other wise.
What do you all think about this!

Could be useful around monkeys or other tree or high up dwelling animals.

Once its not used as a cheap way of killing enemies with crap AI from complete safety.

Like the one on this page? (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/tr7/wallpaper_02.html)

Yeah - I was disappointed it didn't feature in legend. If used correctly I think it could be quite good!

Yes, if used correctly. Imagine Lara being disturbed by enormous bats as she ascends a high-up ladder. If she doesn't kill them by shooting soon enough, she might fall to her death. :) Just a thought.

I think first they should enable shooting while crouching, before upgrading it into something new.

I second the idea of shooting while crouching or prone.
That would add more realism to the game!

Good point that would be nice too, I thought they added that in Legend but I think it wasn't perfected then cut. I thought I saw it in screen or movie from the cut out Nepal section!

It would be a nice action but maybe in the next tomb raider.

Yeah I remember that. I wonder why they removed so many moves (like backward somersault).

I imagine that could be used in a video or interactive cutscene, but not in actual gameplay.

But it's always possible! I mean you can continue holding the direction you need to swing towards while holding R1, shooting whatever that is needed to be ..(finishing this statement for some reason doesn't feel right:confused: ).

And then after swinging, she'd then - ah here:D (sorry it was rough):

I mean this idea is PERFECT:D Great job for coming up with it:tmb:

Which is so true:D
*say does anyone know where I can upload my avatar?...or when?

I really thin this should be brought up - VERY IMPORTANT on this idea:D:D!! Just another thing Lara needed.

there has already been such ideas for legend but unforuantely they didn't find place in the game:(

Well then let's hope it reaches on this one:D CD needs to see this FOR SURE.

You can actually do that in the GBC Tomb Raider games, usually as a means of shooting a switch beyond Lara's reach. And yeah, bats would come down when you would climb down certain ladders. I always liked that, and my first Tomb Raider experience was with the original GBC game, so I was a bit put off when I played TR1 and found out that you couldn't do that.

It would be great. :tmb: And very useful.

I mean anyone in that situation would do the same:D It think in real life, anyone would be able to do that. I don't see why Lara shouldn't or can't do it though:D

it would be very good if they ioncluded it in the next tomb raider games :)
