Default The Significance Of The Monk By The Main Hall Key (Barkhang Monastery)



Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLaabDE88Wc

It's common knowledge that the monks help you against the gunmen in this level. There's one monk who loiters near where the main hall key is, and he might be seen as one of the less significant monks, since he only helps you against one gunman. However, in this video I demonstrate why this monk is in fact a lot more useful than we might give him credit for. When this monk is alive, the gunmen who have access to the main hall will loiter in that area, as they will focus on the monk. This means that they'll give you space, providing that you don't get too close. If you were to kill the monk, then the gunmen would go straight after you and wouldn't give you an inch. Because of this, the monk is more significant than he first appeared to be. Interestingly, if you were to do the level with the monks against you, then killing the monk by the main hall key and keeping alive the gunman who spawns up there will result in the monks loitering in the main hall, as they will focus on the gunman. The point I'm making is that keeping the monk alive will make the level a lot easier for you. And keeping the gunman alive could be of value if you're doing the level with the monks against you.

A very good analysis indeed with a significant monk

We know the monks help Lara if we do not kill them, but this gives an in depths look at their AI (artificial Intelligence).

I tend to just blast everyone in that level, it makes it harder but most enjoyable

Thanks for the feedback. And a nice image too.
