Shadow of the Tomb Raider side quests

Such an issuing task.

One of the six side quests available in the Secret City. You will unblock it after you have a talk with the boy at the lake, while you need to be dressed in a blue heron tunic. He will tell you that a certain dead man stole his cubes. Move to the specified part of the city and talk to Pisco, who is a dead man. He will say that Takii himself lost the dice to him in a fair game.

Pisco agrees to surrender them if you explore the local territory and speak with the five exiles of the sect.

To begin with, four markers will appear on the map, and you can visit them in any order. In these areas, look for citizens, who in the survival instinct will be highlighted in green. After talking with each of them, the fifth marker appears on the map.

You need to go there. If suddenly the marker does not appear, then talk to a woman in a red robe who is at Chaska’s house.

Talk to the fifth outcast, which is the old woman Moraek. Being a clairvoyant, Grandma did not miss the opportunity to earn extra money, therefore she offers you several useful items. In addition to the suit «Scarlet Hunter», you can buy a master key and a Zhumar from a woman.

The task will be available in the Secret City. To begin its implementation, you should talk with the townswoman in the southern part of the city. She will tell about the trouble that happened in the family Kabila. In addition, the task can be started during a conversation with Ucha in the cave Unurata.

I teach, quest giver.

First you need to get the royal horn and the amulet of Saviors in the pond, which is a crypt. Go to the right place, help Kabila, freeing his son, taking the herbs and bringing the sick wife, as a result of which you will return the royal horn. Now go to the next place, find a tree with white paint and climb up to be on top, where there will be a passage to the crypt.

Inside there are several relics, a fresco and a map of the archivist, marking interesting objects on the mini-map of Lara. Next to the fresco there is a barrier. Destroy it, deal with a couple of traps and find yourself at the crypt.

Pass on the wooden bridge, which will break, and Lara will fall down. Find nearby a small room with a lever. Activate it to raise the water level one step. Next, you will need to re-enter the same corridors and activate the levers hidden behind the walls in order to raise the water two more levels higher.

The first time you need to quickly get out of the room before it closes, and the second time — to swim through the hole in the ceiling. Open the crypt, go back to the man.

The assignment will continue after returning from the mission of Saint Juan. After talking with a man in a cave, you will need to find a bow winner. There is nothing difficult in his search: go to the jungle, go to the right and find a cave with weapons in it. After that there will be a dressed-up jaguar, which will need to be destroyed.

You will have to fight only with a bow, so do not hesitate to use fire arrows. Through the main settings menu, you can reduce the complexity of the battle: do it if you have problems.


Another mission available in the Secret City of Paytiti. It will be possible to pass only after you complete a couple of plot tasks. When you return to Paititi from the Cenote, you will find out that the rebels are hiding in a cave near the refuge of Unurat.

Go to where, in accordance with the plot, you will get the costume of the “Snake Guard”. Chat with one of the people inside the cave. It will be marked with a side quest marker.

Go down the stairs to the cave and watch the video. Lara will be ambushed. Kill a few rebel gunmen with bows.

On the square in front of the place of execution you can find several useful characters. Two men will agree to help you if you distract the guard. Talk to the guy with the musical horn, who will start to blow into him, and then ask the musician with the drum to play something. The guards are gone.

To fulfill it, you will need to go to the northern part of the city and at the top, near the mountain to find a house, next to which a crowd of people gathered. This should be done in the costume of the Green Snake, so that the guards will further allow you to investigate the crime. So, Sumaka, the master of the house, is dead, and his servant is accused of everything.

First talk to the cultist at the entrance, but he will not want to let Lara inside. Go down the steps to the right of the house and ask the guy with the musical horn to begin the ceremony. This will distract the attention of people, and Lara will be able to get into the house.

Chat with all the characters, and with some of them you need to talk twice and even three times. Be sure to inspect the body of Sumak.

As a result, you will need to go past Shoko and outside through the bars to talk to a servant named Anka. She will say that the door does not open, and the hostess has forbidden her to tell anything. After exploring all that is possible, leave the house and go right.
