When this happens, Lara’s Adrenaline kicks in to respond to the threat, and the screen blurs to indicate Lara can now perform an Adrenaline Dodge.•Press the left shift key or spacebar while using the cursor keys to perform a dodge and evade the attack. If done correctly, Lara will go into slow motion and have the opportunity to return fire and deliver a headshot to the enemy.•To successfully execute a headshot, wait until the two targeting reticles superimpose over the enemy’s head, then press the left mouse button to shoot. (If Lara shoots before the two reticules overlap, she will not perform a headshot.) Adrenaline Dodges are special evasive moves only available in response to Rage Attacks. Timing is critical! If Lara dodges too late, an enemy can still hit her. With practice though, using Adrenaline Dodges can significantly increase Lara’s chances in combat.BREAKING FREE FROM ENEMY GRABSSome enemies can grab Lara’s limbs and shake her around. If an enemy latches onto Lara in this way, quickly press the cursor keys 4/3 to break free from the animal’s grasp. The faster the keys are pressed, the faster Lara will break free.•Press both cursor keys simultaneously to break free more quickly.COMBAT STRATEGIESMOVEMENTKeeping Lara moving is the most important factor in combat; a moving target is much harder to hit than a static one.TARGETINGThe targeting reticle appears when a target is within Lara’s sight. The color of the reticule changes depending on the target’s status:• Red — Target is within range at its current distance.• Gray — Target is out of range.When locked-on to an enemy, the targeting reticle displays four arrows in addition to the normal targeting ring.• If the target is within distance but out of the field of view, an arrow at the side of the screen will appear, showing you the direction in which the target is located.
