Tomb Raider Underworld Strategy Guide 41: Arctic Sea, Part 1

After a short cutscene, Lara will be back underwater again with scuba gear.  She can swim down until she comes to a castle below.  There is a main door that she is trying to open, but there are a few things that have to be done first.  There are some gears that require some pieces to be put within them located right above the door.  I will tell you what to do with those. 


>

First things first.  You may notice the large statues with swords that pin the chain down.  You will have to make certain that the statues move their swords up, so the chain can pull the door down. 


>

As you go to the drawbridge door, go to the first statue on the left.  Swim around until you are the back of the neck.  You will find a panel puzzle there that you will have to blow off.  Take care of that, and then note the tiers. 


>

The first tier spins independently.  The second tier spins tiers two and three.  The third tier spins three and four.  The fourth tier spins independently. 


>

Spin the second tier until it locks into place.  Then spin the third tier until the third one locks into place.  Spin the fourth and first until they lock into place, and the sword will rise. 


>

Swim toward the drawbridge, and go to the statue on the right side.  Go on the back of his neck and you will find a panel there. 


>

This puzzle is a little different, as it has a knight with a sword.  For the sake of simplicity, I will call the pieces 1, 2, 3, and 4 by descending order.  Piece 1 has the hilt of the sword, Piece 2 has nothing but a blade.  Piece 3 has the a fist (a whole one).  Piece 4 has the knights helm. 


>

Move Piece 3 to the left.  Move Piece 4 up one. Move Piece 3 up one.  Move Piece 2 down two spaces, and it will be in place.  Move Piece 3 left.  Move Piece 4 up.  Move Piece 3 down, and then to the left.  Move Piece 1 down two spaces.  Move Piece 4 left and up one and it is set.  You should have no problem putting Piece 3 in the right place. 


>

After the swords are removed, swim toward the drawbridge door, and then swim down, where a moat will be.  This First Treasure will be hard to find, but look for a white spot in the midst of the gritty sand down there.  Take it and head upward.
