Kurtis Scout - Wings of Apocalypse

Post by Alarable » 16 Jan 2012 01:22

I have 3 secrets. All Bronze Shields.
I see another Shield I cannot reach at the moment.

I have a lit torch. I don't know the purpose
of the torch. Maybe just for illumination.

I NEED a crowbar. I NEED to turn off some
lasers so I can get a weapon.

I mostly like the game but I'm not too
thrilled about the Bus Stop Save system.

Please help me find the crowbar.
Thanks in advance to the eagle eyed
player that spots it.

Posted by just 3 seconds later than Alarabre, so I deleted the double thread:
Just started playing this late evening. So far I have the keys to the storeroom and two bronze shields (secrets). I've been on the roof but can't seem to make the jump over to the metal balconies from here.

Also, how do I deactivate the lasers in the storeroom? I have been around the streets a few times but can't find anything else to do unless I have to search far and wide in the vast grassy areas for a key to the motel? A hint would be good. I liked the look of this urban level immediately! :D

Note - in case you try to save as soon as you begin the level as I always do as a precautionary measure, you can only save the game in one of the few bus stops dotted around the streets.
Oops, I did it again... Image

Jumping over the metal railings:

I had Lara jump east from the first roof, doing a running swan dive over the metal railing. That worked. It's hard to test if the swan dive is needed because there is no active save system, except for the bus stops.

Then what SuzanneJack said about the crowbar.

edit: Finished. Lara states that you can save the game any time you want in Croft manor, but I was unable to make any saves in the second level (F5 doesn't work, and there is no SAVE in inventory).

LOL Vimmers, what sewers?

There are several torches in the NW & SE grassy areas.
They look like twigs. I was hoping it was the crowbar.

Where are the sewers?

Thanks SJack & dmdibl, I'll try those jumps to find the bedroom.

The torches look like a single small branch.

There are a lot of torches all over.
Here is one on the ground by Lara's
right foot.

Thanks for the sewer info.

Do I get the pistols before the crowbar?
What do I do first?

I've got the motorcycle and motel keys, access to the helicopter roof, but I have'nt figured out how to deactivate the lasers :? 6 shields so far, don't know how many are in this level. Any hints on the lasers?

What to use the crowbar on? Been all over looking for a door to open. Also, is there only the jump to the bedroom with the crowbar from the roofs? None of the other roof jumps look do-able. And for what it's worth, I did a standard running jump to the bedroom (not a jump with swan dive) and it worked.

Edit: Never-mind...I assumed that grate was shoot-able, not force-able.

I entered the store room but I cannot reach the top level of it, also miss the crowbar and have not seen a bedroom until now. Also have not been on the roofs. And is there anything to find in the sea?

There is nothing in the sea. Look for a small lane with a fireplace. From there you can go up onto the roof
