Objective: Get through the second gate

From the ‘Citadel Plaza’ Base Camp, with the destroyed gate at your back look for the horse statue directly in front. At the top of the stairs to the right of this is a Statue to destroy [Vandal 05/08]. Behind the horse statue, on the far wall by a blocked door you’ll find a Mural [03/03 - Greek]. Return to the camp fire and t o the left of this , on a stone railing is another Statue [Vandal 06/08] .

Make your way to the objective marker by the gate to the west. As you approach the stairs flanked by the pair of horse statues, look on the roof of the building above the left hand horse to spot another Statue [Vandal 07/08] .

Continue up the stairs to trigger a scene during which Lara will acquire some new Gear: Armor-Piercing Arrows .

Objective: Survive the ambush

As soon as the scene is over we’ll be attacked by Deathless Soldiers. This is a long and challenging fight against a large number of melee and ranged attackers. The Deathless with come in waves and you’ll need to eliminate the lot of them before you are able to progress further.

The basic tactic here is to keep moving to avoid Archer fire, whilst shooting at the melee enemies who chase you around. If the numbers start to stack up, try to have them chase you past the vessels of Greek Fire near the middle of the area and shoot it as they run past. Other than that, spare no expense with your ammo and special arrows.

Mural 03 can be found by the Base Camp (left). During the ambush, try to lead Deathless past the Greek Fire barrels to help thin the numbers out.

Once all of them are dead, we’ll be able to proceed.
