The Quick and the Dead.
Level by Hendrik.
Walkthrough by Dutchy (2005 - revised 2022).
Despite the note by the author, the Crossbow is still to be found in the first level (as a Secret), so it is up to you if you want to follow my route or visit the Saloon at an earlier stage to get the Revolver there.
Strange at first, Lara in cowboy outfit, but the levels look great and are really fun to play, music’s good, so… here we go;
Level 1 - Silverado.
The Jailhouse Key.
After the flyby where you see a bank robber leaving the bank and mounting his horse, go to the bank (E side of town), where you’ll have more space to jump around because this guy has to be killed to get the Jailhouse Key (first shoot him till he drops from the horse, then continue till he’s dead). It can take a while…
Go into the bank, shoot right hand window next to the burning teller (NW) and step up, walk to the back edge and turn right to jump/grab the ledge to the right, up in that back room. Run through into the opening (grab the Flares) there, left onto the ledge in the front room of the bank for some Uzi Ammo at the other end, go through the opening to the back room and find the Jump switch on the wall, pull it (a door opens back in the street where you started this level).
Make your way around the bank to the W street and enter the door (SW), go over the pool to the ledge in SW corner and pull the Jump switch there, a gate opens under water. Jump in the pool and go just through that open gate. With for an Alligator to show up and swim back up to the pool where you can shoot that animal. Get back into, through the gate down left and pick up Shotgun ammo. Turn around and swim straight, follow the tunnel to an underwater room, get out in the far left corner to a courtyard with a stone arch, there is a slot for a Gem (you’ll get back here later), find the crawlspace in the N under the arch and climb up, backflip onto the arch and jump/grab the next ladder over the opening, climb to the lever up there and pull it to open a gate next to the bank (you have to hang in the left corner before you pull up).
Get back down and through the water to climb up at the pool. Go out to the W courtyard and go left around to the N street, that opened gate is opposite the N side of the bank. Enter the small courtyard and head into the building to the E and go left, go straight into the passage below the small window, turn and look up to see a Jump switch you can pull, a gate opens on higher level (binoculars). Go back into the passage and left around the corner. Then right around the next two corners.
In this back passage is a trapdoor, open it and get the Grenades, stay on the boxes and you don’t have to kill the Scorpion there (through the fence you can see a Crossbow), back up to the ground floor and to the E, there is a crowbar door there (for later), go out to the courtyard with the Saloon and head S, there is another lever up on the balcony next to the small house (SW), you can reach it with a backflip onto the roof of the small house and jump/grab the ledge with the lever.
Saloon Street, The Crowbar.
A gate (1) opens in the structure E of this courtyard, go in and left to the NE, in the corner on the box is some Uzi Ammo, return and left around into the corridor near the entrance. Open the blue door and climb the ladder, go outside through the blue door (look over to the N and you’ll see the balconies of the Saloon, run jump over the railing to the balcony without railing, jump to the right one for some Shotgun Ammo and return, go over the other ones to the last, with a blue door (W), you’ll find the Uzis inside, go back over the balconies and jump back over to the building S.
Go all the way to the S and at the second alley left a Dog will attack. S is the opening where that gate (1) opened. Go in carefully over the spike pit and get the Crowbar in front of the gate, (the gate will open and 2 Dogs will try to push you into the pit, so run jump forward into the room where you can take care of them, afterwards you can pick up a small medipack. Here is a gate to be opened with the “Medicine Man” (so it is obvious you will return here later).
The Jailhouse, Laser Sight.
Go outside again over the spike pit and turn around, grab up to the edge of the roof above the entrance and shimmy left to a lever, pull (it opens a trapdoor (2) in the jailhouse) and turn facing N, now backflip over the top of the roof so you can slide grab the edge, pull up, backflip/roll/grab the next roof and shimmy right till you are over a Jump switch, pull it (opens a trapdoor to a Secret near the Bank) and land facing the jailhouse door in front of you. Open the blue door and enter. Left near the desk is the Keyhole for the Key, open the cell, pick up a Laser Sight and a Note, examine the Note.
Out of the cell and climb up through the trapdoor you opened, between both cells, in one corner of the upper room is the Shotgun, in another corner Shotgun Ammo. Get down, leave the jail and head almost straight into a passage W, use a jump switch up right to open the gate and you are back at the Bank, go right around and over a crate to the trapdoor you opened to get SECRET #1, a Crossbow and a small medipack.
Shoot the Ball, Billy’s Gratitude.
Go back up, over the crate and left around up on the crates, left through the gate and in the courtyard into the fenced off area NE, go left and a Vulture will attack. After the fight go N and left through the opening in the fence. Head NW into the alley left of the Saloon, up the stairs and open a blue door left. Into the passage and pick up Binoculars. You are on a balcony overlooking the courtyard, in the building E is a swinging Ball. Fit the Sight on the Crossbow (in case you didn’t find the Crossbow, visit the Saloon first to get the Revolver, see next paragraph) and look for it, shoot the Ball (makes the Gem appear in the Jail). First go to the S end of the balcony for Revolver Ammo and then return to the blue door, down the stairs to the courtyard. Head into the fenced off area and S, right through the next opening and left around to the Jailhouse. In the cell where you found the Sight is now a Gem, called Billy’s Gratitude.
Using the Gem, Ornate Handle.
From the Jail go NW and into the alley W where you opened that gate before, over the crates to the Bank. To the SW corner of Town and into the door W once more. Through the water, keep right and up in the shaft in the left back corner of the last room. In the room with the arch, place the Gem on the pillar S of the water and a gate opens in the arch above. Stand with your back against the wall E of the water and look up with the Crossbow (or Revolver), shoot the Bell. Go to the SW corner of the yard and climb the ladder W till you see Lara appear just above that white towel. Back flip/roll and grab the opening and get in to grab the Ornate Handle. Turn around and grab the ceiling, monkey swing around left to where you can drop at some Arrows. Safety drop out of this opening and swim back to the Bank area.
Head over to the Saloon, to the left of the entrance is a palm tree, there is some Uzi Ammo under it. Enter the Saloon and get ready to rumble, as the bartender starts shooting at you, go up the stairs and to your left is a Baddy that will start shooting, take him out and look for the Jump switch he was protecting (W side and left wall), it will open a door downstairs. At the top of the stairs is a blue door to a room with a Medipack. Now go down the stairs and around the stairs in the E, one more Baddy will appear. Open the door to your right and there is the door you just opened, enter the store room and look for the movable crate in the NW corner, pull it aside and go into the opening behind it, take the Revolver. Behind you, in front of the window, high in the wall is another Medipack. Go back into the Saloon and right around the W side stairs, to the back and open the door to get Shotgun Ammo from the room. Go out to the street.
The Stables, Medicine Man.
A bit to the S and close to that wagon is an opening with a blue door you can open with the Crowbar. There are some stable hands that will open fire on you. Left around the corner are Flares you can crawl to, W is a crate with Shotgun Ammo on top. Climb the pole near (SW) and back flip onto the upper floor. Go along the W side and find a ladder in the NW corner (shoot some Bats), go up for Secret #2, Shotgun- and Revolver Ammo. Go back down and to the S end and left to where the path is blocked, look N and over at the other side is a crate with a target on it, shoot that to lower a crate near where you are. Go to the SE corner for a small medipack and then along the E side to shoot a cowboy. Go get the Medicine Man and combine it with the Handle. Safety drop to the ground floor and go out E, straight into the fenced off area and right left into the alley. Through the blue door and up the ladder to get to the balconies. All the way S and into that passage with the spike trap, through the open gate and place the Portal Guardian (wrong script name probably). When you place the "Medicine Man", the Big Town Gates in the Jailhouse square open.
Go outside and run jump left over the balustrade grabbing the roof W, safety drop down. Go left through the Town gate and turn right, be ware of three Scorpions lurking around this place, go right again into the small passage in the wooden building and turn around to look for the Jump switch.
A block rises, go out and right and climb on the block (NW), turn S and jump/grab the roof edge of the building opposite the block, shimmy left a bit and backflip, to land on the roof of the wooden house, go left and onto the higher part of the roof, to your right is the roof of the center building, stand on the SW corner of the high part and turn facing S, see the windows sticking out of the roof of the center house, run jump over to the first window and turn right, there is some Shotgun Ammo on the roof of the building W, go get it and return here, now jump to the last roof window of the central house and turn to the building W, you’ll see a gap behind the roof, run jump to the last piece of the roof that ends in this gap and slide in. Get Secret #3, a Medipack, Shotgun Ammo and make your way up to the roof windows again. Stand on the one in the middle and turn left, jump to the higher part and then over the trapdoor onto the roof facing E, so you will slide down to a roof window there, from here you will see a Jump switch in front, from the edge, stand jump/grab the switch and you will see a small grate open. On to the roof of the wooden house again using the block NW and go E all the way, jump over to the small square roof in the E and slide/grab the edge, shimmy all the way to the right and backflip/roll/grab the ladder behind you. Climb to the right around the corner twice and backflip onto the balcony there, pull the lever.
The trapdoor on the roof of the center building opens (I had to wait a very long time for the camera to come back), go back to the ladder’ as low as you can go and safety drop down. Make the route up to the central house as before (start on NW block). make your way to the trapdoor (On top and in the middle) and get in. What’s the use you will think, there is nothing here, but shoot the wooden panel S and again nothing till you look down. There is a crack below, so drop/hang and grab the crevice, shimmy to the right and pull up, a flyby will show you another "Ornate Handle". Go in and deal with 4 Baddies and a Dog to get the Handle, 2 Medipacks (small and large) and some Revolver Ammo.
Get out and drop down, go to the E side of this building and push the blue doors open, get inside for some Shotgun- and Uzi Ammo and a small medipack. Back up onto the roof of this building and over the trapdoor to the roof window from which you jumped to the switch, if you look E, you will see a balcony behind the houses there, run jump to the roof of the house with the Jump switch, so you’ll slide and start jumping from one roof to the other, aiming for the balcony. Go S and jump to the ledge with Uzi Ammo, jump back and enter the building E, go right first and grab the Uzi Ammo, then go to the other end and open the trapdoor. Shoot 2 Dogs from up here or drop down and deal with them there. Go into the crawlspace and left for a small medipack (some Bats attack) and right for a lever.
Go back upstairs and to the other side of the passage, climb into the open trapdoor, get 2x Arrows and the "Medicine Man", which will trigger the wooden door at the Jailhouse to open. Go out, jump onto one of the roofs so you can safety drop to the street. Go in to the wide street N, around some corners and through the Town gates right to the Jailhouse. The open door is left, combine the Handle and the Medicine Man to use the "Portal Guardian" to open the door to the Railway Station. Go down the steps through the door.
Crawl left under the train and go left/left between the crates to reach Secret #4, Flares, Shotgun Ammo and another Shotgun. Now go back and climb aboard, the train leaves.
Level 2 - Locomotive Breath.
You’ll find yourself in the first boxcar, one of the crates in front has a cracked side, open it with the crowbar and get Secret #5, a small medipack, go to the other end of the car and pull the lever on your way, left you’ll see a receptacle for a "Star" and to the right the door opened to the next car, jump over and go past first door, nothing there, open the second after you took care of the Baddy and get the Grenades from the crate, go on to the flatbed car and drop off the right hand side, hang and shimmy right to the middle where you can climb up, deal with another Cowboy and get the Revolver Ammo he drops, go over the top of the load and slide down the other side, jump to the ladder on the left side of the next boxcar and climb up, a black Cowboy comes for you and they are harder to kill, so take out the Big guns, drop down and take care of one more Cowboy, find Flares and Arrows in the W side and another crate to open in the E end, here is Secret #6, Shotgun Ammo and Arrows. Climb back out of the boxcar and go down the ladder to the flatbed car with the trucks, backflip and run E past the trucks, a Sentry gun starts shooting, just bite the bullet and jump on the ladder of next boxcar (left or right side of the front), climb up and drop/hang in the center of the right side of the car.
There is a window, drop/grab and get in get Secret #7, shoot some pestering Bats and get some take the Flares right and shoot the boxes to your W so you can shoot the fuel tank on the Sentry gun through the gap (Revolver & Sight), get the Grenade gun in the crawlspace and the Medipack where the Sentry gun was and get out through the hole it was shooting from (W).

Level 3 - The Quick and the Dead.
You are in the abandoned train station of the Pueblo, go E and look for a wooden wall left, one of the crates is marked with two colored bands, pull it out and aside, get in to claim Secret #8, another Crossbow and Explosive Arrows, get out and go left to the end of the passage and to the right there is an extinguished campfire, remember them all (there are more) you will have to light them later, open the wooden gate W of the campfire and throw the crowbar lever (a nice flyby of the Pueblo with more levers, a closed gate and a Medipack on a ridge). From here go N and crawl through the low part to reach the Pueblo.
The Pueblo, open up the Mine.
There’s a campfire under the house. Climb the block left and up right to the small balcony with the low fence. Look out over the Pueblo and see the lever (E) and the Medipack to the right. On your left hand is a small triangular ridge (N), run jump over there and turn right, stand jump to the next flat spot and drop/shimmy right (or run jump) to the corner, grab up to the ridge E and shimmy right to a thin ledge with Arrows, shimmy right around to the front of the ledge and pull up, do not go forward, just take them or you will get stuck, climb down to the block on the S side of the Arrows and then down to the ledge with the lever, use it. Up to the block again and face the next ledge in the corner (SE), if you are lucky the 2 Bears there will walk in and out, so you can shoot them from here, otherwise jump over with the biggest gun out and blast them both, inside the cave is a Skeleton that does not need his small medipack anymore and another lever to pull showing a gate.
On The Rocks.
Go outside and look down to the left, there is a crevice in the rock face with an obstacle you’ll have to shoot off (Revolver & Sight). Now you have the choice, you want the Medipack (which is Secret #9) or not, if you do, jump/grab to the high ridge S and shimmy over there get it and return all the way to the Bear cave, then drop from the ledge and hang/shimmy right a bit and drop/grab the crevice below, shimmy right to the lever. The gate to the Mine opens, but you don’t have to go in yet, instead go down to the ground and climb the blocks again (NW), but this time go over to the building with the statues W, enter the arch in the center and look for the Jump switch (X) up left, go out and into the right hand arch now, follow to a square where a Native and a Dog are waiting for you, deal with them and go to the NW corner, open the wooden fence and get the Torch inside, carefully light it at the campfire.
Lighting the Fires, "Little Big Horn".
Now go to the passage, all the way S to the other side of the building. In the room (in case the entrance is closed you missed the Jump switch (X) before) with the small statue, light the campfire right (#1 for trapdoor) and go around the structure with the statue to find a Big Oil lamp to light (#2 for trapdoor), save and try to stand in the corner near the statue, you’ll burn very easy here, then go down to all the other campfires you saw and light them all, the one under the (Secret) Medipack (#3 for trapdoor) will trigger 2 Natives trying to barbeque you in the fire you just lit, so be careful there. Next is the one under the house before leaving the pueblo (#4 for trapdoor). Do not forget the one campfire near the crowbar switch at the start (#5 for trapdoor), when you light the last fire, the trapdoor you saw every time will open now. Go back to the place you found the Torch and take the Torch with you, climb the small center structure, run jump to the dark house in the right corner in front and find the open trapdoor. Drop in and light the final campfire, the door behind you opens, get the "Little Big Horn" and climb back out of here at the trapdoor.
Get down to the ground. When you climb the house W, you can go up a ladder to a trench above, a Vulture attacks and at the other end of the trench is a room you can climb down to. A skeleton with a Revolver next to it (not a Secret). Get back on track. To the room where the Native was and out S, left to the Pueblo and to the Mine entrance SE.
The Old Mine.
Enter the mine, shoot the fence with the danger sign and be careful when you go around the corner, a Boulder will come down, so turn around first, step back and immediately jump forward to the exit again. Use the same trick for the side the boulder came from, to trigger the second Boulder too, so you will not be surprised later, now go down to the next fence and shoot it out, use the “Little Big Horn" to open next door and enter the cave with the boiling pool, nice!.

Climb the short grey pillar and get the Revolver Ammo. Get a small medipack from the Skeleton, he probably won’t need it anymore and go to the SW corner of this riverbank, when the camera angle changes, you will see that you can get around the corner, so drop back off the edge and shimmy right till you can pull up, climb the ladder and get another ”Little Big Horn". More Crocs appear in the river. Go back the way you came and go to the N side of the river bank, jump over the river, kill a big Bug and go to the far SW to place the "Little Big Horn", a rope drops over the river behind you, look E on the left side of the water fall under water is a wooden fence, shoot it from here and use the rope to swing E as far as you can, drop in the river and swim for the opening, be ware of the poison darts in there and find the under water switch in the end, take the Medipack underneath and return to the place where you can leave the water, behind the second pillar in the part where the Boulder is, is some Ammo. Jump over the river again and look to the right in the corner before to the open gate, get the Uzi Ammo and enter the next cave.

Free Von Croy….
When you approach the locked in von Croy, he will warn you for the Black Cowboy mounting the horse, shoot him like you did the other one emptying your Revolver when you stand straight in front of the horse, when he drops, switch to Shotgun and do him in. He will drop the Key for the Gate so you can use the "Star" to open the prison, walk to von Croy and end the level.
