  1. Hi, @LordFess. Welcome to the forums! I'm not sure about the beeping you heard; I never noticed that, but I can tell you a bit about that area. If you're playing on one of the easier difficulty settings, activating Survival Instinct (Q on the keyboard or Right Stick button on controllers) will highlight most of the objects that can be interacted with. Later you'll unlock skills that make challenge items and major collectibles (documents, relics, etc.) glow in Survival Instinct view, but for now you'll need to look more closely and/or consult a walkthrough to find everything. There are a few areas you can't reach yet because you're missing certain pieces of gear. These include the goodies hidden under that wooden trapdoor-like opening you mentioned. You can't break through the grate, but later, when you get Lara's climbing axes back, you'll be able to climb down there a different way. There's also a climbable rock ledge on the northeast side of that area. Once you get the axes, you can climb up there as well. The first Challenge Tomb is to the northwest of the campsite, but again, you'll need the climbing axes. So you'll have to return here later once you're fully geared up. If you haven't already done so, check the current objective by activating Survival Instinct or opening the in-game map. That will give you a hint as to where to go next. First you'll want to retrieve Lara's bow from that wreckage. If you've already done that, you can putter around in this area some more, explore a crypt, and complete the first challenge, but eventually you'll need to cross the ravine to move on to the next area. If you need more direction, my walkthrough for that level is at https://tombraiders.net/stella/walks/TR11walk/02-peruvian-jungle.html. If you want less hand-holding and just want to know where all the major collectibles are, that page has an annotated level map linked at the top, with all collectibles revealed and numbered to correspond with the walkthrough text. There are also lots of 100% walkthrough videos on YouTube. And of course, we're happy to answer questions and offer advice here. Good luck!
  2. I've heard rumors of a Definitive Edition coming sometime (maybe) soon, so perhaps that empty slot will be filled with something--Croft Manor?...IDK--when that version is released. I'm not in the official fansite program anymore, so I have no inside track, but I've seen lots of speculation.
  3. It's really just a matter of personal preference. Many people finished the game when it came out then played the DLC packs as they were released. Story-wise, the DLCs are all mixed up. Most take place before the game ending, so if you care about continuity, it makes more sense to play them before finishing the main story. But practically speaking, playing the DLC will earn some gear and skills that might be useful in the endgame. Wish I had a definitive answer, but I don't think it matters that much. If you're unsure whether you're ready for the final level, you could always make a new save (or change save slots if you're playing on PS4/XO). Then if you're not happy with your loadout, you can reload that earlier save, maybe try some DLC, and continue with the final level later. Anyway, I hope you're enjoying the game.
  4. This kind of flew under the radar, but Forbidden Planet recently reissued the 2010 Art of Tomb Raider 2-volume set from Dreams and Visions Press. Here's the order page in case anyone's interested: https://forbiddenplanet.com/126203-the-art-of-tomb-raider-box-set-hardcover/
  5. I have heard from a few people having trouble in that area, but unfortunately, most of them never replied more than once, so I'm not sure if the problem is due to a bug or not. One player mentioned there was no lever, but he also mentioned a nearby campsite, which led me to believe he had fast traveled back to that area after completing it. If that's the case, there is no lever because the puzzle can only be solved once. In order to leave the area, you need to use the base camp to fast travel. If you're playing through the game the first time and there's no lever, I'm not sure what to do. Are you playing on PC, PS4, or Xbox? If PC, maybe try verifying the game files. (Right-click Shadow in the Steam Library, choose Properties, Local Files, then Verify Integrity of Game Files.) Or, if that doesn't help, download a save from my site. (Instructions are linked from that page.) If Xbox, try reloading an earlier save or backup save. (To load a backup save, go to the Load Game screen and hold both trigger buttons for a few seconds. That will show all available hidden saves.) For PS4, the only thing I can think of is to reload an earlier save or leave the area and come back to see if anything has changed. That's hit-or-miss, I know, but afaik, PS4 doesn't store backup saves automatically. Also, make sure you have downloaded and installed all the latest updates regardless of which system you're using. If it is a bug, it may already have been patched.
  6. I noticed that too, but I have no idea what they have planned. I know a lot of fans are hoping for Croft Manor. Guess we'll see.
  7. So this is new.... Northern Shaft Key or rogue starfish? You decide! XD
  8. Heya, @Kiwi-Frank. Welcome to the forums! Here's your save after the mudslide. Good luck going forward. Feel free to post here if you run into any more trouble. save1.dat
  9. Cool. Thanks for the info! I'm thinking they may have scanned it from a magazine and the original render was never released. My memory is not what it was but I don't remember ever seeing it.
  10. @Tom@LCO and everybody. I'm looking for a higher-resolution version of this classic render. I think it's from the TR3 era, but I can't remember where it was originally published. Another player asked me about it because she had only a memory of it, no picture, and she's thinking about using it as a reference image for a tattoo. I sent her this version and suggested she check the LCO gallery section since there are a bunch with the black dress, red dress, etc. Thanks for any leads!
  11. Thanks! I promise not to abuse the privilege by posting links to sketchy sites or too many pics of my ducks.
  12. The final DLC pack, The Path Home, is set following the end of Shadow of the Tomb Raider after the dust has settled and the battle is over. It is only available to Season Pass holders. Follow this link for a chance to win a Season Pass download code for the platform of your choice. Winners will be announced Monday, April 22. The Path Home launches on April 23. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PathHome P.S. @Tom@LCO I hope it's OK to post this here. Feel free to move, delete, etc.
  13. Yeah, that sounds good. I swear these games are designed for controllers and the keyboard controls are just tacked on as an afterthought. I don't think they realize how cumbersome and finger-twisting all this can be.
  14. You're welcome! I'm glad it worked for you. I probably added too much info about the other weapons, etc., but hopefully that'll be useful when you get to that point in the game.
  15. Hi, @manda3d. Welcome to the forums. When you hold the right mouse button, Lara aims the weapon she currently has equipped. If you then press left mouse, she fires normal ammo. If you hold the right mouse button and press the middle button, she fires special arrows/ammo. In order to craft ammo, you need to have the weapon equipped but NOT hold Aim (right mouse). Just press and hold the left mouse button without aiming to craft normal arrows or press and hold the middle mouse button without aiming to craft fire arrows. Of course, you need to have the necessary resources in your inventory or Lara won't do anything. Lara has the skill to craft fire arrows at the beginning of the game. You don't need to unlock it. Later, when you unlock the skills that let you craft special ammo for the pistol, rifle, and shotgun, you'll do the same thing: Select the gun, but don't hold Aim. Just hold middle mouse to craft special ammo. Then to shoot that special ammo, hold Aim and press middle mouse. Just to further complicate things, if you have a mouse with a wheel, spinning it cycles through the available weapons, so things can get messy if you're trying to shoot special ammo and accidentally spin the wheel and change weapons. If that bugs you, you can go into Options > Key Mapping, scroll down to the options for Next Weapon and Previous Weapon, then click on the mouse wheel icons and replace them with a different key. I usually play with a controller, but that makes a HUGE difference for me if I do play with keyboard and mouse. Good luck!
  16. In order to use a rope arrow to make a line, you need to stand close to the wooden post at the end of the path (since that's where Lara will anchor the end of the line), aim at the rope-wrapped beam down below, and press Alternate Fire on the controller (I think that's R2 on PS3, R1 on PS4, RB on Xbox) or Space on the keyboard to fire a rope arrow.
  17. The same thing happens to me! I embarrass myself constantly pressing Horizon Zero Dawn or Assassin's Creed buttons in TR!
  18. Once you've unlocked the ability to use focus herbs (Scales of the Serpent Skill) and have some herbs in your inventory, press F3 or hold L1/LB and press Square/X to use them (just like using health but different button). Then as long as the effects last, whenever you aim, time slows.
  19. I don't have a tip for a specific location, though if I think of one, I'll let you know. It's not hard if you use Focus herbs to slow time. Just need to make sure the dudes aren't wearing helmets since you'd then need to land 2 headshots on each. If you are playing NG+, you might even be able to get it in Cozumel in the area with the forklift (https://tombraiders.net/stella/walks/TR11walk/details/cozumel-5.html#3) If you fail, it's easy to reload the checkpoint and try again. I got it there without Focus, but it's MUCH easier with.
  20. @ChILd_ReBoRn I can't see the picture, but I'm glad you were able to work it out. :)
  21. That's great! Mind if I add it to my walkthrough? With credit, of course.
  22. Congrats on the anniversary and happy birthday to our heroine! 😁❤️🎮
  23. It's possible to kill the bear with just regular arrows. You need to keep moving so it doesn't get you, heal if necessary, etc. It's definitely easier with poison though. Do you have an earlier save you can load, preferably before dealing with the Trinity soldiers so you can save all of your poison for the bear? Even if you didn't create your own previous saves, if you're playing on PC or Xbox One, you can reload your last campsite save or backup save. If XO, open the Load Game screen and hold both trigger buttons to show the hidden saves. On PC, the backup saves will be on the regular Load Game screen near the top. Also, if you're playing on PC, you can download a save file from my site: https://tombraiders.net/stella/savegame/TR10saves.html.
  24. What Big T said is basically correct. Go to the Load Game screen and hold both Trigger buttons (LT and RT) to bring up a full list of saves, which should include a Last Campsite and Backup save. You may have to replay a bit, but at least you won't be forever stuck.
