Stella's Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Walkthrough - For Windows PC (Steam), Xbox One, and PlayStation 4

FOURTH CHALLENGE TOMB (Waterfall of Sobek)

Updated: 1/3/15()

CHALLENGE TOMB ENTRANCE: The entrance to this Challenge Tomb is located across the pool to the right of the entrance to the Tomb of the Ferryman in the Waterfall of Sobek section of the Overworld. It is only accessible after completing the Ferryman level. At that time, a column rises out of the pool so you can jump across. (screenshot) The tomb's location is marked with a star on the Overworld map. (screenshot)

SINGLE-PLAYER CHALLENGE: Before attempting the actual puzzles in this tomb, you'll need to explore a bit to get the lay of the land and open a couple of gates so you can move about more easily. Start by swimming across the pool in the lower corner of the tomb. There's a crumbling wall here, behind which you can glimpse a time bomb and some goodies. You'll need to use a different bomb to blow up the wall. (screenshots)

Use the staff to raise the column with Osiris's Glyphs so you can jump onto the ledge on the left. From there, jump across the narrow channel to the square platform with flowing water on all sides. Move to the lower corner of this platform and jump across the water to the next ledge on the left. Destroy the Mark of Set to open the gate nearby. (You don't need to go through now, but this will make things easier later when you're moving time bombs around.) Jump back to the square platform with water on all sides. Move to the upper corner and jump across the water to the next ledge above on the left. (screenshots)

Grapple the golden ring on the wall above, climb up, and jump onto the ledge on the right. (There's another ledge with a crumbling wall to the left of the ring. Ignore it for now as we focus on breaking down the first wall.) Move along the higher ledge past the time bomb sitting behind the fence. Jump across the water to the right. Destroy another Mark of Set to open the gate behind it. (Again, you don't need to go through now, but opening this gate will make it easier to return here from below.) Now jump back across the water to the ledge on the left and get ready to move that bomb. (screenshots)

Raise the Staff of Osiris and keep it up throughout the entire sequence to prevent the time bomb from exploding prematurely. Step on the pressure pad near the bomb to push it off the ledge into the water. As the current starts to carry it downstream. Jump across the water and stand on the pressure pad on the other side to open the gate so the bomb can pass. (screenshots)

As soon as the bomb clears the gate, jump back across the water, run forward and around to the left and drop down into the area beneath the grapple ring. Stand on the pressure pad there to open the next gate. As soon as the bomb comes around the corner and passes through the gate, jump across to the square platform with water on all sides, move to the lower corner, and jump across the water to the next ledge on the left. Stand on the pressure pad near the column with Osiris's Glyphs to open the next gate so the bomb can pass. When the bomb clears the gate, run to the lower right, through the gate you opened earlier by destroying the Mark of Set, and into the room below. Stand on the pressure pad there to hold open the next gate, so when the bomb comes down over the waterfall it floats out into the middle of the pool. (screenshots)

Now jump into the water and drop a remote bomb behind the time bomb so that when you detonate it, it flings the bomb up onto the ledge above on the right. Climb out of the water and push the bomb against the crumbling wall. Now you can lower the staff and let the bomb explode. Go through to find some gems, the DUAL SUBMACHINE GUNS, and another time bomb. (screenshots)

Now you're ready to use the second time bomb to destroy the wall in the upper left corner of the tomb. Raise the Staff of Osiris and keep it up throughout the entire sequence to prevent the bomb from exploding prematurely. Roll the ball out of the room and then push it into the water. Use remote bombs to push the time bomb across the pool and onto the opposite ledge. (screenshots)

Roll it up the stairs on the left. Then use another remote bomb to fling it onto the ledge above. (This is where you destroyed one of the Marks of Set earlier to open the gate.) As you approach the column with Osiris's Glyphs, briefly lower the staff to allow the column to sink into the floor so you can roll the bomb onto it. You need to move quickly here. As soon as Lara and the bomb are on the green tile, raise the staff again to extend the column and stop the time bomb from exploding. Then plant another remote bomb behind the time bomb. Jump onto the ledge. Then detonate the remote bomb to launch the time bomb toward you. (screenshots)

Roll the bomb against the crumbling wall and let it explode. Now you can get the gems and MAX HEALTH UPGRADE in the next room. There are also a pair of sarcophagi that may yield more gems when destroyed. (screenshots)

CO-OP CHALLENGE: The multi-player puzzle is nearly identical except that there is an Eye of Horus switch on the square platform with water on all sides. It toggles two gates open and closed: the one near the pressure pad below the grapple ring and the one just below and to the left of the switch. (screenshot) Also, in the 4-player game (and I assume the 3-player version as well), there are 2 pressure pads instead of one, controlling each of the gates along the waterway. (screenshot) I will add more screenshots as soon as I can, but here is the basic sequence for the 2- and 3/4-player versions.

2-player puzzle: Destroy the 2 Marks of Set to open the gates and move into position near the first time bomb, just as in the single-player version. Have one player jump across the water to the right and stand on the pressure pad to hold the gate open, as the other player launches the bomb. (The Egyptian character should of course hold up the staff the entire time so the bomb doesn't explode.)

When the bomb passes through the first gate, both players should then jump down to the square platform with water on all sides. While the Egyptian continues to hold the staff aloft, Lara should shoot the switch so the gate leading to the area below the grapple ring is open. Isis/Horus should then jump across and stand on the pressure pad there in order to hold the second gate open so the bomb can pass through. At the same time, Lara should shoot the switch again to toggle the gates, plant a remote bomb near the switch, and jump across to the ledge near the column with Osiris's glyphs. Once she is safely across, she can detonate the remote bomb to toggle the gates again so Isis/Horus can jump over to the switch.

While Lara stands on the pressure pad near the column to hold the third gate open, Isis/Horus can use a remote bomb to flip the switch once again, so the gates open/close and she/he can jump over to where Lara is. After the bomb passes through the third gate, both characters should run to the lower right, through the gate you opened earlier by destroying the Mark of Set, and into the room below. Either can then stand on the pressure pad there to hold open the fourth gate, while the other swims out into the pool to wait for the bomb to descend.

When the bomb reaches the pool he or she can then use remote bombs to launch it up onto the ledge near the crumbling wall. Either/both characters can then roll the bomb against the wall to destroy it.

The sequence for the second time bomb is exactly the same as in the single-player game.

3- or 4-player puzzle: Destroy the 2 Marks of Set to open the gates and move into position near the first time bomb, just as in the single-player version. Have two players jump across the water to the right and stand on the pressure pads to hold the gate open, as the other player launches the bomb. (One Egyptian character should of course hold up the staff the entire time so the bomb doesn't explode.)

When the bomb passes through the first gate, everyone should then jump down to the square platform with water on all sides. While one Egyptian continues to hold the staff aloft, one of the others should shoot the switch so the gate leading to the area below the grapple ring is open. Two characters should then jump across and stand on the pressure pads there in order to hold the second gate open so the bomb can pass through.

At the same time, the character(s) on the middle platform should shoot/bomb the switch again to toggle the gates, plant a remote bomb near the switch, and jump across to the ledge near the column with Osiris's glyphs. Once they are safely across, they can detonate the remote bomb to toggle the gates again. After the bomb has passed through the second gate, the characters who were standing on the pressure pads can jump over to the platform in the middle, shoot/bomb the switch once more, and then rejoin the others near column with Osiris's glyphs.

Meanwhile, the two characters on the left should then stand on the pressure pads near the column to hold the third gate open. After the bomb passes through that gate, everyone should run to the lower right, through the gate you opened earlier by destroying the Mark of Set, and into the room below. Then any two can stand on the pressure pads there to hold open the fourth gate, while the others swim out into the pool to wait for the bomb to descend.

When the bomb reaches the pool they can then use remote bombs to launch it up onto the ledge near the crumbling wall. Anyone can then roll the bomb against the wall to destroy it.

The sequence for the second time bomb is exactly the same as in the single-player game.

When you have everything, return up the stairs in the lower right corner to the Overworld.
