    Default How do I use the climbing axe?

    Hi

    That's the question, I have the climbing axe in my inventory and I've come to a surface that I need to climb but I can't figure out how to equip it?

    I can't move forward until I figure it out.

    I tried every button I've got. LOL

    Are you playing on PC?
    For me i just need to press E when facing the wall. Sometimes you need to jump and than press E try that.

    If the climbable wall extends all the way down to near floor level, just walk up against it and press whatever the interaction button is (as said, it's E on the PC). If it doesn't come that far down, you have to jump into it and press the interaction button to catch it.

    I think you are always better doing a little jump and then the interaction button (square for the ps3 if I remember correctly...I know what the buttons are when I'm playing )

    I'll just give a controller advise here, but it's the X button on the 360 controller (not sure what the PS3 equivalent is). You just have to push Lara towards the craggy wall, or jump towards it if it's across a ledge, then press X to make contact. Once the grip is established, use the stick to move around. If you have to make a jump to bridge a gap along the rock surface, press X again to re-attach.

    But I'll ask this juuuuust in case; you are certain you have the climbing axe, right? Not the first prying axe you get from the shed in the coastal forest? The climbing axe is the red one you get from Roth.

    Hi

    I have the climbing axe, and I'm on the PC using a key board, I ordered a 360 controller and I'm going to try using that when it arrives.

    I couldn't get Lara to do anything with the axe except whack chips off the wall.

    I was sure I had tried using the E key at least 10 times, but the F key was the only one that got any action so I kept beating that to death, jumping and whacking it.

    I guess the fact that she whacks the wall and chips fly off when you hit the F key had me thinking that, that had to have something to do with climbing.

    Once I know what to do it worked fine.

    Thanks for the help.

    Mike
