*Using some "unorthodox"
methods, described at the bottom of this page, it's possible
to pick up 3 more items (including the Uzis) and get 3
Slide into the level. Approach the edge and the trapdoor
opens. Take a running jump across the gap and climb up into
the right opening to find a large med-pack. Return to the
trapdoor and jump down into the water. Swim straight ahead
to the sand bar, climb out and shoot the crocodile in the
water. Do things look a bit familiar? That's right, its TR1
and Khamoon all over again!
Jump into the water on the other side of the sand bar and
head to the right to lure a couple more crocs out of hiding.
Climb out on the ledge to shoot them. Pick up a small
med-pack and magnum clips. Then go underwater into the cave
the crocs came from to retrieve some shotgun shells.
Cross the pond, climb over the sand bar then swim to the
corner of the sphinx and climb out. Go behind the head and
pick up some shotgun shells. Underwater, near the base of
the obelisk, you'll also find 2 sets of magnum clips. Climb
out of the water on the ledge nearby. From here you can now
shoot a panther through the fence. (Note the shotgun and
shells on the ground. You'll be getting them soon.)
Jump from the ledge to the carved pedestal with the magnum
clips on top. This opens an underwater door below the font
of the sphinx. This is SECRET #1. Swim into the passageway
until you meet the crocodile, reverse and get back to the
ledge so you can kill it. Then return to the secret passage.
Back here is a large, flooded room with a small med-pack and
2 boxes of shotgun shells.
Return to the main pool and swim through the tunnel below
the metal fence. Another crocodile awaits here. Swim across
to the far side of the area or retreat back into the first
room to climb out and kill it. Or, climb out into the small
doorway to the right. A panther lurks here (two if you
didn't kill the other one through the fence), so take care
of it before bothering with the croc. Once you've killed the
panther(s), claim the SHOTGUN, 2 boxes of shells and a small
med-pack. Underwater behind the boulder is another box of
Climb out on the sand to the left of the cat statue. Jump
onto the gold wall, then jump diagonally to the wall in
front of the cat. From here you can kill 3 panthers on
ledges high above, if you like. Go into the water below the
cat statue and pull the lever to open the gold door near the
Pharaoh statue. Pull up on the slanted ledge behind the
statue and quickly back flip to land on the pedestal. Now,
head for the gold door.
Enter and proceed, but watch your back--a panther attacks
from behind. Continue to the opening over the area with
pillars and spikes. Jump to the pillar on the right. Cross
the blue floor to the next pillar. Jump to the base of the
pillar on the left. Safety drop down on the other side to
land on a flat area. WALK through the spikes into the
Go the right, pull up and walk to the edge above more
spikes. Do a standing jump to grab the ledge opposite; pull
up. Do the same again to get over another pit of spikes.
Jump diagonally to the ledge on the left. Drop down, jump
over more spikes. A door opens above, for SECRET #2--a large
med-pack, magnum clips and 2 boxes of shotgun shells. The
exit door opens when you approach it and you emerge back at
the spike room. Repeat the jump and drop to get back to the
cave entrance below.
This time, go left, around the corner and to the right
between the rocks. The cat statue on the ledge above
transforms into a live panther as you approach. You can
shoot from below or pull up on the rock ledge on the right
where it dips down in a "V." Jump across to the area below
the carved square pillar. Jump across to the area where the
dead panther is (below the carved square pillar). Follow the
tunnel behind the pillar, proceeding slowly to avoid a
boulder that drops from the ceiling. Jump across the gap
then follow the passageway to the left. Pick up some shotgun
shells in the passage and kill a panther that attacks from
the spike room beyond. Walk through the spikes to get
another box of shells.
Return to the tunnel and proceed up the stairs. Collect the
shotgun shells from the top of the tall pillar. From the top
of the stairs (not the pillar) do a running jump to grab the
opposite ledge. Turn around and jump to the sloped ledge on
the right, slide backwards, grab the edge and traverse right
until you can pull up on a flat spot. Do a running jump to
the ledge with the shotgun shells (this is SECRET #3). Drop
down to the greenish stones below, then drop/slide to the
Go to the other end of the cave where some carved stone
blocks obstruct the exit. Pull the first block out of the
way, then push the second block twice to proceed. Follow the
tunnel to a pool.
Across the way is another panther on patrol. You can kill it
from this side of the water. Jump across to the island with
pedestal that has the key on it. Immediately jump up on the
pedestal, as there's another panther lurking behind it. Kill
it and take the GOLD KEY.
Take a swim to draw out 2 crocodiles and kill them from the
shore. Now locate a narrow underwater opening just to the
left of the silver grate. Follow this passageway, climb out
of the water and immediately jump up on the stone block. 2
crocodiles come out of their hole right away. Pick up the
MAGNUMS and some clips. Another 2 crocs emerge when you pick
up the small med-pack, and there's one more crocodile in the
water. Take care of it before swimming back to the main
Swim over to where you killed the first panther. Before
getting out of the water, pick up some magnum clips
underwater in the corner opposite the entrance. Go up the
slope and duck into the doorway on the left for a small
med-pack. Continue up the slope and follow the wooden
bridges to the top. At the very top of the last bridge, turn
around so you're facing down the bridge. Jump straight up to
grab a ledge. Pull up and jump to the opposite ledge. Climb
to the top of the rock steps,own one more step for a large
If you want all the kills, slide down the slope next to the
stairs. Hang onto the end and drop, drawing that shotgun.
Even after your adventures earlier (where you got the
magnums) this pit still has a couple of crocs left in it.
After killing them, exit through an opening opposite the two
small ones. This deposits you in the cave between the
moveable blocks and the room with the pool.
Return to the top of the wooden bridge. Now climb up on the
right side and kill another hungry crocodile. Drop and hang
from the ledge over the water and traverse to the right
until you can pull up. Take the shotgun shells. Jump to the
cat statue. Behind it is a small room with a locked door.
Use the gold key to open it.
Enter and sidestep to avoid three boulders that come rolling
down the ramps. If you're patient, you can kill 2 panthers
from above or through the fences on the sides. Facing the
ramps, go to the right and drop down to retrieve some
shotgun shells. (You can take another shot at one of the
panthers from here.) Climb back up and go down the left side
to the floor (you'll have to get that panther now if you
didn't before.) There's a third panther in the room on the
far left. You can draw it out and jump up on the block to
kill it if you like. Inside this room are 2 small med-packs.
Through the first door on the left is a hallway that leads
to a switch. This opens the doors at the top of the ramps.
There's also a small med-pack here. (You can hop up near the
cat statue for a nice view of the outside area.)
Return to the lower room and go across to the other side.
Another panther lurks just inside the doorway. After killing
it, follow the hallway to a fork. The darker, left fork
leads to some shotgun shells and magnum clips. The right
hallway to a small med-pack.
Climb back to the upper level. Go to one of the ramps and
walk just far enough onto it so you can drop over the edge
and hang. (Each time you walk up any of the ramps, a boulder
is released.) Traverse until you reach the flat area at the
top where you can pull up safely. Shoot the panther below
before entering either of the doors.
Here you'll find a pair of wooden bridges over spikes. Take
a standing jump to the first bridge, then a running jump to
the second. Jump around to the various alcoves to pick up 3
small med-packs and some shells. Drop into the water, swim
quickly through the underwater opening to avoid the 2
crocodiles Head upward then to the far left, where there is
a lever. This opens the door just to the right. Swim out,
surface, and immediately kill an attacking panther. Now
finish off the crocs and go back to the underwater room with
the lever to retrieve some shotgun shells.
Return to the sandy area and explore carefully. There are
some well hidden spikes over near the more visible ones.
When you go through the opening in the fence, you'll meet
another panther, and when you pick up the 2 boxes of shells,
a third panther attacks. The area to the left of the pool
has goodies strewn on the ground, and a boulder trap ready
to be sprung. Either rush in and back flip/side flip out, or
run in and to the left for safety. When the coast is clear,
pick up 2 boxes of shells and a small med-pack.
Now, go behind the block next to the big mound and awaken a
pair of cat mummies. Jump on the block or the mound to kill
them from safety. The standing mummy is not a threat. There
is a crocodile in the pool below the wooden bridge. Kill it
then swim down to pick up a small med-pack. Cross the bridge
toward the mummy to end the level.
If you want a little something extra, before finishing the
level, you can use the "fence bug" go get out into the
desert and explore. Go the corner of the fenced in area just
beyond the spike pit. Face Lara into the corner and she can
run right through it to the other side. Once outside the
fence, head to the the left and continue until you come to a
small pool. Underwater are the UZIS and 2 sets of clips.
There are also 2 more cat mummies out in the desert and
another panther behind the bridge/mummy pedestal area. Stay
away from the edges, though, the sand is really hot! To get
back inside the fence, jump from the low hill over the
corner of the fence. (Special thanks to Jeff Reid, John
