After using the niche in the small room connected to the pool, exit through the doorway at the top of the curved steps in the northeast corner.
Pass by the ramp you used earlier when going after the BLACK BEETLE.
Shoot the hollow bench on the right to get a large medipack. Proceed along the hallway to the left.
Shoot 2 more hollow benches in the alcoves ahead to get normal arrows and revolver ammo.
Continue to where the hallway narrows and there are holes in the floor indicating concealed spikes ahead. Open your inventory and combine the MECHANICAL SCARAB and the WINDING KEY to form the MECHANICAL SCARAB WITH KEY.
Use it while standing on the tile with the scarab symbol. The MECHANICAL SCARAB will cross the spikes ahead of you, activating them...
...so you can cross safely after it.
Be sure to pick up the SCARAB on the other side.
IMPORTANT: Save the game here and either follow the walkthrough carefully or do not overwrite this save until you've completed this area in case you need to start again. The MECHANICAL SCARAB can only be used 3 times before it breaks, and it's possible to mess up the sequence so you can't get the secret.
Beyond the first spike hallway is a small room with two doorways. Go through the one on the left (north) and follow the ramp up to a small room.
There's a scissor-blade trap in the entrance, which is activated as you come in, so don't linger in the doorway.
Open the sarcophagus and retrieve the RIGHT GAUNTLET of the ARMOR OF HORUS. A skeleton rises out of the floor to the right of the crypt.
Blast it with a grenade or explosive arrow.
To return past the blades in the doorway without taking any damage, stand facing the center where the blades come together and run through as they begin to open. Return down the ramp.
