Tomb Raider Underworld Strategy Guide 28: Southern Mexico, Part 8

Updated on February 19, 2009

Go ahead and use either the ladder or grapple your way down.  Take out the enemies that will show up.  They look like Mayan Shamans or something.  The same rule that applies to the thralls applies to these guys.  Jump on them after defeat. 


Keep going until you go down the stairs with the flying blades.  Use a little agility to get past them, and you will come to a point where spinning blades block both directions.  You will have to jump up three ledges, sideways jump, then use two poles to get to the other side.  When you are on this side, pull down levers on each side and the razor wheels will come down in all but one area.  You may not want to do that at all, but I will explain that a little later. 


For that last one, you will need to climb the ladder located in the center of the former spinning blades.  Jump to the ledge at the top, and go right until you see a balance beam below you. Hang off the ledge and drop to the balance beam, and carefully cross over.


Soon you will get to some ledges, so jump up to the first one and then to the next.  Go right, and then you will need to sideways jump there and go until you get to a place where four horizontal poles are lined up in a row.  Flip off all of them until you cross to another side. 


From there, you can jump to a wooden ledge and shimmy around left until you can climb up top.  From here, there is a puzzle that requires you to light up a gem, and then twist them until you form a zig-zagged line path to the next one.  It is a lot like some of the puzzles in Thailand. 


Note all three razor wheels underneath the balance beam are gone, and an enemy has been released. 


Go ahead and jump to the wooden ledge, shimmy right and backwards jump to the area with the line of poles.  Go through them all.  Go on the ledges, and then back through the balance beam, and down the ladder. 


Remember how I said that you might want to hold off on pulling the levers behind the spinning blades, well, here’s why.  When you solve the crystal puzzle on the top level, a bad guy is released.  Apparently, these bad guys are really stupid, because if they see you behind a giant spinning blade, they will rush you without thinking.  As a result, they will cut themselves to pieces. Idiots.  Take advantage of their stupidity and just wait before you pull the levers.
