What is the point of Dungeon 1? Nothing works there that is unusual. ANY combination of 2 switches will open the exit gate to get to Dungeon 2 with the same result. Even using medipaks to pull ALL switches has no impact. It is not possible to reverse switches. This room seems absolutely useless and a waste of the builder's talents and time (as well as players)! This must be another bug since this game IS KNOWN to be buggy (even fatally).

I am now stopping this game since it seems to be another failed attempt to create a Tomb Raider game. The builder should have ended the level at the place where the challenges begin. Up until then, it was an excellent game. Now it is becoming a disaster.

i am totally disagree with you TombTitan
in my end everything works perfectly
challenge 1 says test your luck
if a player use 2 switches and the door open
he/she says aha i was lucky so no challenge in that
move on to next challenge

This is not an answer to your question vimmers, but I see the shotgun worked for you.
I'm really sad that it didn't work in my game.
Looking forward to the save

Vimmers, I totally DISAGREE with you. The game says it is a CHALLENGE. There is absolutely no challenge if ANY COMBINATION of switches works to open the door. That is why it has to be a bug. Otherwise, the builder is either a liar or stupid.

BtB bird:

Here is the save just after using the shotgun for the shatter object, so you don't need it anymore. It is made BEFORE you solve the left wing. It has to be like that for the people who haven't been there yet, so you'll have to solve that area again if you already did it. You also have all 5 secrets up to that point picked up.

Oops, I did it again... Image

:2thumbsup: Thank you very much BtB bird :2thumbsup:

And the shotgun works perfectly :D
This was a very strange thing. I don't know what I did wrong, because other players except totou until yet didn't have that problem.
Thnx again > I am on my way :)

The buddha statuettes are a side quest, the more you find, the more you will be rewarded for your efforts. The quest starts after finding the Gong Stick and before the timed run for the pickaxe you should have all 6

Do you mean I have to take first the gong stick and then the pickaxe?
I think I first got the pickaxe because I had to use that broken lever

New BUG alert (not found in beta testing):

You must place all daggers simultaneously on the pedestals before quitting the game to the desktop for any reason. If you place only some of them (instead of all) to raise some pillars and save that part of the game, and then quit the game -- when you go back to the game by using a savegame, the pillars and daggers you put on the pedestals will disappear, and be gone forever.

Thus, wait until you find all daggers for all pedestals (in the area with prayer wheels--first area of the game after the challenges) to open up the upper level pathway.

You can save repeatedly with any number of daggers in the inventory -- just don't use them until you have all for the puzzle.

This is actually an old official Tomb Raider Core Design bug with object placement that has not been seen much in recent years, including other BtB 2020 levels.
