Quarter Of The Dead
Walkthrough by Moonpooka for trle.net
Lara begins her adventure high above a courtyard in the city. Walk ahead to the slope and slide-jump onto the next ledge. Pick up the 9 x LMP ~ 3 x Normal Grenade Ammo ~ Grenade Gun and then jump over to the next ledge and pick up the 2 x Flash Grenade Ammo. As you take the pick-ups, seven guards will arrive in the courtyard below and start firing at Lara. You now need to shimmy to the east side of the room, but even with all the medi-packs you just picked up, you will not make it while the guards are still firing at you. So, select your grenade gun, load it up with flash grenades and fire one down towards the guards. This won't kill the guards, but it will blind them and they will stop firing at Lara. Face the east wall, press the "action" and "up" keys and Lara will grab a gap in the top of the wall. Now shimmy all the way to the end of the wall and drop off on the east side of the room.
Face south and take out the two guards on the ledges. Jump over to where the guards were, and take out the third guard who shows up on the south side of the room. Now pick up the Nitrous Oxide Feeder and the LMP from the ledge.
Proceed southwards and jump to ledges on the south wall. Head west and make your way over the ledges. Pick up the 2 x Revolver Ammo on the way, and head to the final south ledge. Take out the guard that attacks, and then pick up The Revolver. Do not be tempted to dive into the pool down in the courtyard or you will end the game too soon.
Look SW, spot the bike over on the far south rooftop and make your way around the ledges to the bike. Take down the guards that arrive to greet you, and then get on the bike and drive it over the north slope and down onto the next rooftop (I found no use for the Nitrous Oxide Feeder).
Dismount the bike and head to the west wall. Spot the crawl space inside the green tinted alcove and head through. At the end of the crawl space, turn around, hang drop and grab the edge of the hole and shimmy left to the red tinted passage. Pull up and crawl to the end of the passage, and then pick up the SMP. Do not proceed to the end of the passage. There's a small medi-pack at the end, but you will be trapped by fire when you return through the passage. So, turn around, head back to the hole, shimmy around to the blue tinted passage and pull up inside it. Head through the passage and collect The Laser Sight. Now make your way to the end of the passage, take out the guards at the end and pick up the Revolver Ammo.
Proceed through the passage ahead and drop down into the storage room at the end. Pick up the LMP then top up with health and drop down to ground level. There are eight guards patrolling this room. Take them down and then search the room and the top of the boxes for 4 x LMP ~ Super Grenade Ammo. Now head to the SE corner of the room and use the floor lever to open the west wall door.
Make your way to the newly opened door, but don't go through yet. As soon as you enter the passage, you will trigger a line of fire emitters. There's no way through them other than to sprint to the pool room at the end of the passage. So, top up with health, save your game and then sprint through the flames (Lara will of course catch light) and drop down into the pool at the end of the passage.
Pull out of the pool and head up to the upper balconies for a LMP ~ Revolver Ammo, and then drop back down and use the floor lever on the east side of the pool to open the west wall door (sometimes the door doesn't open until you approach it). Head through the door and go R - L. Half way down the passage, pick up the LMP and then head to the end of the passage. Now go left into the next passage, kill the patrolling guard and enter the east room.
Head to the central platform and pick up The Breast Plate. Doing so will trigger some fire emitters surrounding the platform. Jump over the fire emitter and collect The Crossbow ~ 30 x Explosive Arrows from the floor. Use the floor lever to open a door back out in the passage, and then head back out to the passage and go L - L - R and through the newly opened door. Before heading through the passage, turn around and take out the guard that's snuck up on you from the previous passage. Now enter the passage and make your way to the room at the end.
Jump to the four central pillars, pick up The Left Greave ~ The Left Gauntlet ~ The Right Greave ~ The Right Gauntlet and then exit the room via the east wall opening.
Spot the Flash Grenade Ammo to your left and pick it up. Note: If you face NE and run straight ahead you can pass through the north wall. You will drop down into a passage that you can't return from, and the passage then leads to some shotgun ammo. But the tile that the pick-up on is trapped and I never found a way to collect the pick-up. There is also an invisible opening behind the pick-up that leads to the pool room, but it's impossible to jump through the wall as the ceiling is too low. It's also impossible to access the passage via the pool room. I don't know if this was meant as a secret, but good luck if you manage to collect it.
Head north down the passage, and then go left into the next passage. Make your way to the end of the passage, and then go right into the next passage and pick up the Flash Grenade Ammo. Note: There's another invisible opening in the next passage. It leads to another invisible opening that you slide through and arrive back in the "four pillars room". I found no need to return there though, and I have no idea what the purpose was for this hidden passage.
Walk one tile ahead from the grenade pick-up, face left (east) and walk through the wall. Make your way to the end of the following passage, and then pull up into the crawl space to your left. Head though the crawl space, pick up the LMP ~ SMP and then drop down into the store room.
Take out the two guards then head to the NE corner of the room and pull up into the crawl space. Make your way back to the hole at the T-junction, shimmy around to the green tinted crawl space and make your way out to the rooftop where you left the bike.
Use the bike to get back to the south rooftop, and then dismount the bike and head over the east ledges until you are above the pool down in the courtyard. Now jump down into the pool and pull out into the courtyard.
Run to the north side of the courtyard and take down the seven guards (who oddly enough, are still blinded from your attack at the start of the level). On the east side of the courtyard you will find another bike, so hop on and drive to the south side of the courtyard. Drive through the south wall barrier, and the drive up the slope ahead. At the top of the slope, turn right, head straight on and drive down the short slope to finish the level.
