Wasn't she supposed to stab Himiko with that sword? I foggily remember having read something like that somewhere, maybe it was just a theory. It seems pretty random how there was a separate cutscene with her taking that sword, but she never actually used it, and she stabbed Himiko with a torch instead (which I found pretty strange if you ask me).

Sometimes models/assets that are used during a cutscene are placed on the map somewhere close by or far away off the map, at least this is what I've noticed when I used the camera tools. It might mean she was indeed supposed to use the sword in the cutscene at some point, but it was changed later on.

Edit: might be what Amunet's saying as well, it seems to be a leftover either way.

That is so bizarre? Maybe it fell from Lara's pockets when she was struggling with Mathias. But if that were the case why is the Chou Dynasty Helmet not on the floor as well?

I hope so. (I will forever prefer that ending, btw.)

Interesting. Yeah, that's a possibility too. Definitely would've looked better than the torch.

Indeed. You'd think it's there for a reason.

At first I thought that I glossed over important information from a description or a cutscene, that tells how important it is or something. But yeah, it rather seems like a leftover. Aww.

I made sure I had the entire game 100% complete before fighting the final boss/last level. Everything was done. 100%


then at the end it said I only had 99% completed (this is the DE)

Check cliffside bunker. Its the only place with collectables that doesn't have a fast travel basecamp. So it won't appear on the fast travel menu, you have to manually walk there from shipwreck beach.

The game is on sale on PS4 for only 6 dollars if anyone is interested. Also cool to see TR being acknowledged again with this silence and all lol

I have a great idea!! I think we should add the TR4 16 year old classic Lara skin into this game. How about that?

Oh, while that would be *lovely* I think what be even better is the FMV teen Lara. That's the outfit we deserve for DLC8...

Not for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. But for Tomb Raider 9 will fit in well for this one because according to the plot of this game, Lara Croft turns out to be SO BLIND & NAIVE like the 16 year old girl that she is right inside the brain of her own.
