Objective: Follow the path up to the tower

Once you regain control, we’ll be back in the upper village at day time. Unfortunately, much of the northern part of the village area is still blocked off to us, although if you look behind you and back where we fought the flamethrower soldier you’ll find a couple of crates of Salvage and a box of reagents.

Inside the building at the top of the stairs there is a box of Ammo and an Archivist’s Map . There is a crate of Salvage on the balcony outside. The makeshift medical treatment building on the way to the objective marker has a Document [13/33 - Greek] , a basket of Herbs and a box of Ammo inside.

When you regain control it wil be daytime again (left). Look in the nearby infirmary tent for Document 13 (right).

When you reach the objective marker, there is a Strongbox [05/08 - Weapon Part: Bolt Action Rifle Component 04] on the ground beside it.

Drop down into the water below. The game wants us to proceed straight ahead to the entrance to the southeast, however if you explore the left side of the area (northeast corner) you can find a slanted log leading to a ledge above and a Challenge Tomb (we’ll do that in a minute).

For now, proceed towards the objective marker and on the way you’ll find a new Base Camp ‘Aqueduct Ruins’. You can use the Base Camp here to apply any upgrades you require and spend any skill points you have. Exit the Base Camp menu when you are ready to continue.

Look around the Base Camp to find two crates of Salvage , a Monolith to decipher, an Explorer’s Satchel and shrubs containing Herbs/Hardwood .

Grab Strongbox 05 (left) before dropping into the water below. Swim to the left to find the entrance to a Challenge Tomb (right).

Now let’s go and tackle the nearby Challenge Tomb!
