Fighting the final boss
isn't too bad when you know his secret. His most powerful
weapon is his Death Ray which will "Kill You - No Questions
Asked - Immediately!". He also never misses, so the trick is
to never let him fire it, and he won't as long as you keep
the meteor between you and him. So keep your distance and
circle to stay on the opposite side as the spidery boss and
To kill this monster you will have to collect the four
meteor fragments from around this room. You will have to
stun the Spider-monster long enough to take each piece. Do
this by firing on him until he freezes then get a piece and
repeat. Always go for the nearest piece and one that is in a
direction AWAY from the boss, AND opposite the meteor. This
means you may have to do some preliminary maneuvering to get
him in the proper location before you stun him.
The boss moves in a counter-clockwise direction around this
room (usually), so after you retrieve a fragment, make sure
to head right when exiting the alcoves. When you have all
four pieces the meteor will drop into the pool and you can
now actually do DAMAGE to the boss. Finish him off!
Now that things are a bit more quiet, climb the ladder to
the top. Go past the carved face then drop down and backflip
to the hand of the statue. Jump over to the middle ledge and
follow the passage to the left. You arrive high above the
cavern and can monkey swing over to the next ledge. From
there, jump to the rocky ledge and climb up and outside.
Slide down the snowy slope and turn right.
Kill any resistance that is still hanging around before
pushing the button on the wall. Head through the gate to
spot an approaching helicopter. Approach the helicopter to
end the level and Lara's main adventure in Tomb Raider
