Level 5: Parisian Ghetto

The cut scene shows Lara waking up in an old railway car (poor girl) the next morning at 6:00 am.

[ Notebook Reference ]

Exit the car and turn left. Head to the homeless and talk to him. Lara asks about Bouchard (a contact of Werner, as you might have seen from the Notebook) and where she can find him. Although you do not get much info, the homeless tells you to ask the owner of the Cafe Metro.

Go back where you exited the car. Facing the exit, climb to the top of it on the left hand side. When you pull up, Lara says she can climb that easily and the camera shows the barbwire on the wall. Pick up the Large Health Pack and jump to grab the fence. Start climbing up, then right and drop on the metal bridge. Alternatively, you can vault onto the big pipe next to the car and jump to grab the top of it. Then use the barbwire on the left.

Above the car - Turn around. You can see a City Guide on the right, but before talking to him go for a couple of pick-ups on the left. Take a running jump to grab the opposite metal bridge and pull up. Take a standing jump to the small grass covered ledge. Turn right and walk, pressing the Walk button to avoid falling down. Pick up the Chocolate Bar and 160€. Return to the first metal bridge the same way you came.

Jump to the left where the City Guide is. Talk to him to get more info about Bouchard and the Monstrum. He tells you that Bouchard owns a club called Le Serpent Rouge and he also suggests you to go to Cafe Metro. [ Notebook Reference ] After the dialogue, go to the right around the fence corner and pick up the 160€ at the end of the stairs. Return back and open the door next to the Guide.

Parisian streets – You enter what looks like an abandoned street. On your right hand side you can see the club Le Serpent Rouge but it is closed. So, talk to the "lady" on your left. There is no reason to be rude because Janice can give you some useful info. She tells you to try Cafe Metro and talk to Pierre, the owner. She also suggests you to talk to Bernard who frequently visits the Park. Both of them used to work at the club – Pierre as a barman and Bernard as a janitor. Janice also mentions Carvier and something bad that happened to her. [ Notebook Reference ]

You now have two people to talk to in order to find Bouchard: Bernard and Pierre. Make your choice because if you talk to one, the other will not help you. In both cases, you get a key to enter the club Le Serpent Rouge and both men ask for the same thing; a Trinket Box. In order to get that, you will need to go to the next level (The Serpent Rouge) and then return back to Parisian Ghetto. But you get a different reward for the Trinket Box. Make sure you talk to Janice or neither of the two men will help you. Also, there are four midlevels you can visit (Rennes' Pawnshop, small part of "Bouchard's Hideout" level, Willowtree Herbalist and St. Aicard's Church), but if you are not interested about the pick-ups, you can totally ignore them. Note, however, that all of them can be done in your second time through Parisian Ghetto, and especially the small part of Bouchard's Hideout level, because there is a door that Lara cannot open, as she needs to upgrade her leg strength. In order to do so, you have to go to next level (The Serpent Rouge), where Lara gains this strength. So, as you are backing back to Parisian Ghetto, leave everything for later.

From where Janice is, pick up the 160€ under the shelter on your right hand side and some more from the bench heading up the stairs on the left, opposite Janice (see this screenshot). Once you get this, follow the road straight ahead, having Janice to your back, and approach the sidewalk with the seat. Pick up the 160€ from the right hand corner. Now you need to make a choice and decide from whom you want to be helped.

Pierre's help – Facing the direction of Janice, head to the right. The road leads to Cafe Metro. Enter through the door next to the motorbike. If you are wondering whose bike this is, take a look on the right hand side. A man is sitting on the table, but he is not willing to talk. Talk to Pierre. He will help you find Bouchard if you get him the Box from the broken lighting rig of the club. Once you make the deal, he gives you the Bartender's Key to enter the club from the stage door. Exit the Cafe and turn left. Turn right, head down the stairs where Janice is and turn left. [ Notebook Reference ]

There is a brief cut scene where the man you saw before comes from the alley where you are heading. He rides his bike and leaves.

Enter the Serpent Rouge from the stage door in the alley next to the garage door.

Bernard's help – Facing the direction of Janice, head to the left. Pass the arch and take a look on the left. A man (the Doorman) is standing behind a gate but he is not willing to help, at least for now. Continue down the street and you will see the Park on your right. Open the door and talk to Bernard. He is not willing to help you and he says he is busy. Lara tells him that Janice told her that he visits the park. She also mentioned that he worked for Bouchard. Lara explains that Bouchard may know what happened to a friend of her. Bernard tells Lara that Bouchard owes him a Box and he wants it back. It was hidden at Bouchard's old club, The Serpent Rouge, but he had to leave it behind because the things got nasty. Lara then suggests him that she could retrieve it for him from the old club. Bernard tells her that he knows a password that would get her past Bouchard's Doorman at his new hideout. So, they make a deal and he gives her the Ex-Janitor's Key that will get her into the garage next to The Serpent Rouge. From there, a passage will lead her into the main building. So, Lara is looking for a small box, hidden in the broken lighting rig. [ Notebook Reference ]

You may have noticed the goodies behind the closed gate at the bottom of the stairs in the old subway, close to Bernard. You will get them later. Exit the Park, turn right around the corner and head towards the truck. Turn right and enter the Serpent Rouge from the garage door on your left.

Second Time

  • Kills: 0
  • Pick-ups: 1 (Pierre's help)
  • Upgrades: NO

You just exited The Serpent Rouge. Climb down the ladder and drop through the opening in the floor. Head down the stairs and safely drop down to the street (Rue De Clef). You have to give the Trinket Box to Pierre or Bernard, depending from whom you got the help. You have an alternative choice, however, and this is to give the Box to the Doorman. Before doing that, you may want to visit the four midlevels. You will collect some items from the two of them that you can pawn at Renne's. Make sure you visit these levels now or you will not have a chance to pawn your stuff after leaving Parisian Ghetto. This page includes a complete walkthrough for the four midlevels.

Trinket Box to Pierre – Go back to the Cafe Metro and talk to Pierre. He hesitates for a while but Lara mentions that he surely does not want to see her dangerous side. Pierre then tells her that someone else was asking for Bouchard. It was the customer who was sitting in the corner. He then tells her about his ex, Francine, who knows a discrete route to the back of the premises. He then gives her Francine's address and the code for the gate. It is arranged and Francine is expecting her. [ Notebook Reference ]

After the conversation, you have the Cafe Owner's Contact. It is a piece of paper with a code on it and it will help you to access the house of Pierre's ex-girlfriend. Exit the Cafe and turn left. Continue ahead until you see Francine's house on the left hand side: Rue Dominique 17. Before proceeding, make sure you have pawned everything. You are not going to need the items later in the game (they are useless items in your inventory) and once you enter the next level, there is NO way to come back. Do not be afraid to pawn what you have on you. Rennes will not buy something that it is useful for the game later. Once you are done, enter the code (15328) and open the door. Go up the stairs and open the door to enter St. Aicard's Graveyard level.

Trinket Box to Bernard – Go back to the Park (if you are not already) and talk to Bernard. Lara asks for the password, but Bernard requires the Trinket Box. "No chance old man. Password first". Bernard gives Lara the password (Pluit Noir) and tells her to find the Doorman at the graveyard next to the church. [ Notebook Reference ]

Before talking to the Doorman, make sure you have pawned everything. You are not going to need the items later in the game (they are useless items in your inventory) and once you enter the next level, there is NO way to come back. Do not be afraid to pawn what you have on you. Rennes will not buy something that it is useful for the game later. Once you are done, go to the Doorman exactly opposite the Park and talk to him. Lara tells him she wants to see Bouchard but the Doorman is not willing to help. She tells him the password and the Doorman opens the gates to St. Aicard's Graveyard.

Trinket Box to the Doorman – You can ignore Pierre or Bernard and go to the Doorman. Give him the Trinket Box along with 800€ and access the St. Aicard's Graveyard level. If you do not have the money, the Doorman denies helping you. Have you pawned everything you have? Maybe you can collect some money this way. If your money is still not enough, you just have to go back to Pierre or Bernard. If you have the money, you enter the Graveyard from the same place as talking to Bernard.
