Objective: Climb the tower
Enter the open gate ahead. There is a camp fire inside. Approach this to unlock a new Base Camp ‘Citadel Gate’. 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.
On one of the walls beside the camp fire you’ll see a section of weak wood above. There is a second section of weak wall off the ledge to the right. Use your Broadhead Arrows to create platforms to climb allowing you to traverse from the closest wooden wall to the top of the second. From the top arrow, look to the end of the first wall to see another weak wall. Use another Broadhead Arrow on this and jump to it. From here we can use the nearby handholds to reach the next platform above.
As soon as you climb up onto the platform, immediately turn to the right to find a chest containing Relic [10/10 – Ivory Carving]. Inspect the inscription in the concave section of the tusk for a boost to Mongolian language proficiency.
Use Broadhead Arrows to again climb to the top of the nearby wall. Climb the stairs and when you reach the gap, use the hanging rope log for a Rope Arrow sing to the ice wall on the far side. Be sure to mash your pickaxe button as you arrive! Climb to the top of the ice wall and use the ledge to shimmy to the left (watch out for button prompts to press as you go). Use the handholds provided to scramble up to the next section of tower above.
Upon entering, jump and use the grapple axe on the hanging beam to reach the next platform. At the far end, do the same thing again to reach a scalable wall wrapped around a column. At the top of this scalable wall there are a pair of weak wooden walls to the left and in front. Use the Broadhead Arrows to create platforms across the pair of walls to allow you to reach the top of the right hand of the two. From here you’ll be able to jump to a nearby platform on the right.
Run to the end of the first platform here and use the swing bar to reach the next. Continue to the other end of this one and shoo the hanging log in the distance with a Rope Arrow to swing over to an ice wall below it – make sure you hit your pickaxe button to grab on.
Scale the ice wall to the top and on the platform above to the left of the gate there is a section of weak wooden wall. Use your Broadhead Arrows once again to get up to the top of this where you can grab the overhead ledge. Shimmy around the corner to the left and climb up to the room above. From the small ramp here, use the grapple axe on the hanging beam to reach ice wall ahead.
Climb to the top of the wall to find a crate of Salvage and a camp fire. Approach this to unlock a new Base Camp ‘Broken Spire’. 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.
Objective: Reach the top of the tower
From the Base Camp, leap across to the ice wall of the adjacent building. Grab the handholds above and climb them until an explosion occurs above. Jump to a second set of handholds to the left. From the top of this scramble up to the ledge above for a scene.
Following the scene, move slowly across the narrow ledge provided. When you can go no further, jump across to the ice wall to the right and climb around the corner and upwards. Use the handholds and ledges above to move around to the left and to another ice wall. Above, use the handholds to reach a third ice wall. At the top of the ice wall jump upwards and use the grapple axe to grab the platform above.
Climb up the rope for a scene. During the cut-scene, you’ll be required to shoot an enemy. Shoot him in the head a few times to keep the cut-scene moving along.
