Tomb Raider: AOD Review and Resources
***Ad-Free and Printer-Friendly Walkthrough and Guide***
This Pod creature is tough for one reason...the controls to the game are incorrect. Here's the deal: To fight this creature you must first shoot him in the small circular area under his mouth. Little green splatters will emerge with every correct hit. After popping her a few times in this area, she will freeze, but start shooting green poisonous ooze out of her side openings. You must avoid being hit by the ooze, while shooting the source. The problem with shooting the source is targeting your gun. Now, the manual to the game says the "Triangle" button targets. This is true, but they forgot to add that the "Square" button actually is the one you have to hit to toggle through the targets. When shooting, hit the "Triangle". You should see your gun target something. Now you're in "target mode" and can move through targets by hitting the "square". Lovely. So, back to what we were doing.

OK...you've shot the little circle under his mouth. She freezes and spouts. Run to a side. The green ooze is coming from some yellow openings on her body. Shooting her under the mouth caused two of them to blow. You need to focus on the glowing ones. Shoot them. Then, when the creature starts moving again, shoot under her mouth to freeze her and repeat. The interesting thing is, I never "blew out" the glowing yellow sections like I thought I would. I just shot at both of them through two shooting sessions each, and I got a cutscene. So, just shoot at them, even if you don't think you're accomplishing anything. You'll get the cutscene, too. Also, through this part remember to holster your gun or untarget with the "Triangle" if you're having problems running around Boaz...it's just not possible if you're locked on. Also, don't fear getting close to her to shoot the opening under her mouth. If you just get close and pop her, she'll freeze before she can hurt you.
Cutscene happens, Kurt says "That wasn't too hard", or something similar, and SURPRISE, you're not done yet. Enter Boaz, the butterfly. From teh get go, just shoot. Shoot and shoot and shoot and she'll fall. Holster your gun, run up to her and hit "X". You'll get a cutscene of Boaz stabbing Kurt...which apparently gave Kurt a braincell because then, and only then, does he whip out his star whipper and decapitate Boaz. Poor guy.
Back to Ms. Croft. We have a new Notebook entry: "Find Eckhardt's old lab. We need that third Periapt Shard". OK. Will do.
There are two tunnels in front of you. One to the left, one to the right. Head to the right. When you slide down, jump over to the large platform in front of you. From here, move forward and jump to the small platform in front of you, then to the ledge across the way. Pull the lever. Your legs feel stronger. Pull yourself up on the bridge with "X" and walk across it and out the door. Now head down the opposite tunnel, the one which was initially to our left.
Here you will find a lever. Pull it and the door across the way has opened. Head left and pull the lever. This will raise a door at the opposite end. You have to make it there before it shuts. So run forward, jump, jun forward, jump, run forward, then jump and get under that doorway. Remember, if you sprint while running (R2) you will jump farther.
Move forward and into the next room. Look below you and left. See the ladder? Jump down to that ledge and climb it, then the next ladder. Jump across the bridge, slide down the ramp and catch the section of bridge across the way. Pull yourself up and pull the lever. The main door unlocks. Hang off the section and drop down. You'll catch a platform below. From the platform, jump to the stairs and run up. A lava product will fill the door and it will open. Enter.
Welcome to Eckhardt's Lab. Mwahahahahaha!
Run forward and slide! Jump up onto the ledge above to avoid the spikes. From the ledge, jump to the opposite side of the lava pit, deep enough so the spikes there don't get you. Run forward and enter the lab. Continue forward, then turn left. In the back corner is a table. On the table is Alchemic Phial #1. Pick it up. Head back to your entrance and notice the lever. Pull it. This will move the grate in front of you and allow you to climb up the ladder by the door. The pit below the grate is an excellent place to toss the knights who are annoying you below. Just kick them both in and your life will be a lot easeir. Climb the ladder and work your way around to the wooden machine. Go to the front of it and place the Alchemic Phial #1 in it.

Head back to the ladder, but don't go down. Jump on top of the cage behind you. Walk around the top of it you find the trapdoor. Fall down and collect Alchemic Phial #2.. Upon collecting the Phial, the cage will drop. You need to get out of the cage and onto the top of it. Climb up the side of the cage with the trapdoor, then grab the hanging door and pull yourself up. Ontop of the cage look for a hole in the wall around you. Crawl into it and pick up the Alchemic Phial #3. Exit out of the hole and climb and one of the walls. This part took some time: To exit out of the pit, you have to do a backflip from the ledge you're hanging on to the opposite side. So, when you can't climb any higher, hit "Circle" and down on your control stick and you'll get out.
Now, run up the stairs on your left and place the second phial in the machine. Then, turn around and run into the small room across the way. Here's another plaque looking for a Phial. Insert #3 and you'll get a cutscene of water pooring into the pool below, cooling it off. When it's done boiling, jump in, swim down and get the item on the pedestal on the bottom of the pit. This is the Shard you need. Swim up and run through the newly opened door. Woohoo! Slide, baby, slide. Run forward and into the arena. Here's a cutscene. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Fight!
OK. Eckhardt is running around the circumference of the circle. Now you just need to focus on avoiding his attacks. Even though you don't have to shoot him now, pull out your gun so you're locked onto him. When he attacks, move toward the attack and jump. You'll side jump and clear it. After a few rounds of this, he creates three versions of himself which are all brought into the center of the circle into one. Avoid the lasers, shoot him then run up to Eckhardt. You will get a cutscene of you stabbing him with a Shard. Repeat the process two more times. You will get a cutscene. Karel saves you, but offers you the chance to be part of his freaky world. You remember it was him who killed Von Croy. Dang. Another battle.
Avoid Karel's attacks. Run over to Eckhardt's body and collect his Eckhardt's Glove. In your Notebook it will read "Use the Glove to destroy the Sleeper". Hmmm. Facing
Eckhardt, run to the next pillar on your left and behind it. Press the button and a ladder will drop. Run to it and head up. Work your way around to the
next ladder and climb it. Work your way back the star console and up the next ladder. Move around to the bridge that juts out facing the Sleeper and jump at her.
Here you will get a cutscene of you destroying it with Eckhardt's Glove. Nice work. Game over. Woo Hoo!
