Xian Swordsmen

Tomb Raider II

Enemy Type Regular Enemy
Weapons Sword

The Xian Swordsmen (or Stone Warrior with Sword) first appear in Tomb Raider II in the Floating Islands. At the beginning of the level all these swordsmen are in stone form. They will come to life when Lara triggers them, by stepping on certain areas. These swordsmen can levitate and will do so if it becomes necessary for them to reach Lara on a ledge.

In the Remastered version of the game there is a Trophy/Achievement for eliminating all of these swordsmen, without hurting them while they are levitating, called On Equal Terms.

On the PlayStation you could get rid of them before they came to life, by shooting grenades at them.

This doesn't work on the PC, however you can pre-damage them so they only need one shot after coming to life. Only the spear gun can do that. Shooting them three times with the grenade launcher while still stoned will cause the system to crash.

However, the amount of spears/harpoons needed to pre-damage them is quite a lot. The pre-damage method works best if you have unlimited ammunition from completing the game beforehand.
