Stuck in bell room with no rope arrows
I am stuck in a room with a large bell. I shot two rope arrows at the large iron ball to thrust the ball at the bell. I used the shutters to let in the storm to position the ball. However, two rope arrows were not enough and now I am out of rope arrows. I cannot shoot rope arrows at the ball anymore.

Reloading the last saved game left me without rope arrows so I am stuck! Is this a bug?

Can anybody help?

Rope arrows are infinite. So you can never run out of them remember you fire rope arrows with the middle mouse button or the space bar.

First, open only one shutter, force the bell to move, close that shutter and open the second one, do the same thing, then open both and pull again.

Thanks a lot, PanicFire! For some reason, I cannot shoot rope arrows with the middle mouse button anymore. Worked twice, but not anymore. Space bar solved the issue, however.

Seriously? They make us try with each set of shutters open separately 1st before having both open and knock the bell down? I've been stuck there for 1/2hr trying to get it down!

I'll have to try that when I get up in the AM.

Exactly the same happened to me, but i have no arrows, so I can't aim with the bow =/ I've been stuck for 2 days, but I guess i'll have to start over

How is that possible? There are tons of arrows everywhere on this level

You do not need arrows to fire rope arrows. Either hold down middle mouse button or spacebar to alt fire the bow which are rope arrows. (Rope arrows do not use up regular arrows)

I know, but since I have no arrows I can't choose the bow as a weapon, so I can't aim with it and throw the rope arrow

Just went ingame, fired all my arrows (explosive and normal) into a wall, swapped to pistol, then back to Bow and it let me fire Rope Arrows with both Space and Middle Mouse..If I try and fire a normal arrow, she pulls out the pistol.

It's not about how to do the puzzel its about using rope arrows if you are out of regular arrows.

I know but his post also says hes shooting the ball at the bell

Just exit the game and restart with that save game. (if Lara does not already magically now have a supply of arrows) After restarting look around - I think in game items are re-spawned.

You should have seen the puzzles in the older series.

I hate to admit that this was one of two places in the game where I resorted to Youtube videos to see how its done. My only other TR exposure was "Underworld" which I enjoyed the majority of outside of the stupid timed motorcycle ride and one of the tombs near the end of the game.
