Default N Is For Natla

I know, it sounds weird to say that there is something connected with Natla in Tomb Raider Chronicles. But it really is there. Did you ever looked at Pierre's guns?


I don't know why Core let this "N" on his guns, if they wanted to sign something by that or not. This Lara's Rome adventure is said to be in 1995 (if I remember well) so it might mean that Pierre is in connection with Natla for some time before he and Larson crossed Lara's way to Scion in 1996. Or maybe developers were just lazy to change texture But... In TR1 had those guns Lara, too, not only Pierre. And they were little bit different:

I think it had something to do with pierre and natla connection when lara was in Rome in 95.

OMG... I think it's just a mistake. Interesting, though.

I noticed this too. I think you're probably right about the developers not retexturing them. They made the effort to retexture Pierre's clothes though.

I believe the guns ARE textured differently, actually...

Maybe it's just a reference.

Intresting, I bet that Pierre was already in Natla's time by 1995 so it could be possible that the pistols were given to him by Natla. Natla Technologies might be making guns as well as... whatever else they make.

I think the designers just didnt get round to retexturing the guns
Its also plausible that Pierre is already connected with Natla, we can't assume when he did join up. Natla would have wanted the Philosophers stone, and probably sent Larson and Pierre to negotiate with Lara in the theatre, seeing as though she bribed her to track down the Scion as well
