Where to find Lara Croft
You can find Lara Croft amongst the Stealthy Stronghold ruins in the north-west corner of the map. If you land directly at Stealthy Stronghold she will most likely be found in the middle of the location. If not, she’s easy enough to locate by circling the structure while looking for the white NPC dialogue box symbol on your minimap.
Head over and click the button to speak with her and she will automatically give you a random item, which could range from some building materials to a Slurp Juice. As well as these freebies, she offers quests that reward gold for completing tasks such as opening chests and getting pistol eliminations. Lara is also available for hire as an ally, who is very useful for drawing fire and distracting enemy players.
How to get the Grappler Bow
Talking to Lara is also the only way to acquire the impressive Exotic level Grappler Bow. It deals 89 damage, and acts as a helpful way to escape sticky situations. Just point at where you want to travel, fire an arrow, and you’re out of there. It can even grapple on to other players, and be used instead of taking fall damage.
The unfortunate downside is the weapon’s obscene price tag – the Grappler Bow costs 500 gold bars. At least it should be easier to zip about the island with your pockets significantly lighter.
