When she reaches the gates of the Acropolis she only finds abandoned supplies and decides to follow the trail through the mountain. There she discovers the Remnant bazaar, but it, too, is abandoned and there are clear signs of a fight here. Soon she discovers a group of Remnant that have been taken prisoner by Trinity soldiers, but she is too late: The get executed before her eyes. After getting rid of the soldiers she navigates the old cellars and finally locates Sophia and some Remnant. This time she is able to rescue them from their captors.

After overcoming a blocked door with her newly acquired Grenade Arrows she follows the fighting uphill and finally discovers a shot down helicopter and the tower. In its catacombs the remaining Remnant have hidden themselves, waiting for rescue. Lara is able to get rid of all the remaining soldiers.
