Various Cheats and Hints
Have Lara face exactly north. Enter the inventory screen and look at the compass. If it is not transparent, try positioning her again. Go to the small medipak, hold G + U + N + S, then release those keys.
Enable the "Unlimited items" code. Close the inventory screen. Enter the inventory screen again. Go to the large medipak, hold W + E + A + P + O + N + S, then release those keys. Note: The code only affects the adult Lara.
Have Lara face exactly north. Enter the inventory screen and look at the compass. If it is not transparent, try positioning her again. Go to "Load Game", hold H + E + L + P, then release those keys. Close the inventory screen to advance to the next level.
Save health packs:
You can save health packs by going to a different level, then coming back for health because the levels are so numerous and close together.
Save explosive ammunition:
Save explosive ammunition (grenade launcher, Cross Bolt, etc.) for tougher opponents when fighting the skeletons by using the shot gun against them. Get the skeleton between you and a ledge and blast it. The skeleton will fall off the ledge and cease the exist. Since shot gun ammo is more prevalent in the game than the explosive ammunition, this will allow you to save it times when there are no ledges to help.
To roll easily, instead of pressing (End) press the [Up] + [Down].
Easy way to face exactly north:
Find any block that faces north. Climb up or jump to it. Go to the inventory screen and your compass should be transparent to confirm she is facing exactly north. This may also be done by climbing a block that faces south. Press Roll once to point exactly north.
Turning on all the switches in the Star Room in the Lost Library:
First, start at the switch across from the reset pad. Face the reset pad and number each switch starting with the one you are at as "1" and then going left, 2, 3, 4, up to 7. Then, activate the switches in the following order: 1, 3, 2, 7, 5, 4, 6.
Killing the red ninjas:
Shoot at them. When they start spinning their blades, put up your gun, bring it out, and start shooting. When your gun is put up, the ninja will begin to stop spinning his blade and will not start spinning for a few moments. This gives you enough time to blast him.
To kill the knights found in The Lost Library, shoot the blue gem in their chest. Do not attack from the back, as it is just a waste of ammunitions. Six or seven direct hits with the shotgun or the crossbow will kill them.
No damage from Horus:
Step into the blue light Horus was standing in before you put the armor on him. He can keep attacking, but it will not get through the light. Do not get behind it. If you do, his weapons will still hurt you. You must be inside the blue light. This works best when the "All weapons" code is enabled.
Underneath the Sphinx: Getting out:
You can sneak past the bulls without waking them or worrying about locking them in their cages. First, make Lara face north and enable the "Unlimited items" code: Open the inventory screen and you should have all four keys you are supposed to collect in the level. Go to the far right and walk slowly past the cage and the pillar. Then, sidestep to the right until you are almost in the right corridor. Then, go behind the bulls and enter the stone tablets: right, left, middle. Sneak to the left and go to the gate you opened. From there, cross the two pits and place the keys in their correct locations. Go through the gate you opened and head across the monkey swing. Grab the scriptures and exit the level by the monkey swing. Remember to walk across the empty room after the scripture room, as there are spike traps located there.
Chambers Of Tulun: Avoiding damage:
In big room in the Chambers Of Tulun where the man that makes shockwaves chases you, wait for a gold beetle to appear then start running around. The beetle will grab you and you will hover around. If you move too much, hit a wall, or get hit by that man, the beetle will let go, slice up your neck, and you will take damage.
