|Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Walkthrough|
|Previous chapter||Chapter 21 - Gold and Bones|
Showdown is the twenty-second and final chapter of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.
Nathan Drake fights his way across Atoq Navarro's ship, and after several shootouts, arrives at the platform where the helicopter has crashed. As Nate runs to help an unconscious Elena Fisher, Navarro appears out of hiding and shoots some nearby barrels. They explode, and Nate is knocked to the ground. His weapon is blown overboard by the blast. Unarmed, he takes cover as Navarro opens fire. When Navarro stops to reload, Nate takes his chance and engages Navarro in a fistfight. Nate eventually knocks an apparently unconscious Navarro to the ground.
He runs to help Elena out of the helicopter, and as she climbs out, she notices that Navarro is getting back to his feet, gun in hand. Nate notices that the cable connecting El Dorado to the helicopter is in a loose loop around Navarro's foot. Nate pushes the helicopter overboard, which plummets into the ocean below. Nate says his final words to Navarro, "Adiós, asshole," as the rope tightens around Navarro's ankle and pulls him, and El Dorado, into the ocean.
Nate and Elena discuss their experience, and as they lean in for a kiss, they are interrupted by Victor Sullivan. Sully reveals that he has brought with him a boat load of treasure, to which Nate responds happily. As they sail back to civilization, Elena gives Nate Francis Drake's ring, explaining that she took it back from Francis Drake's body, thinking that Nate might "miss it." She reminds Nate that because she lost her camera, he still owes her a story. He smiles and assures her that he's "good for it".
First rule, don't try to hit Navarro. You can't do anything to him yet.
The first shootout is Nate versus Navarro and three mercenaries. Navarro has a SAS-12 set to semi-auto that he will fire several times before getting a bead on you, and shooting you dead on if you are not in cover. The other mercenaries all carry M4s. Use the wooden boxes and the shipping containers on the right and left for cover. A reload for the SAS is propped up on one of the boxes right in front of you. The boxes can fall apart if they take too much damage. The recommended cover then is the shipping containers, especially the right one. Take aim at the two boxes Navarro is behind. Shoot them until they fall apart, carefully timing your shots to avoid Navarro's shotgun. Navarro will run off, allowing you to focus more on the mercenaries. There is a reload for the M4 propped up on the shipping container at the end of the area (it is recommended to exchange your SAS-12 for and M4 before leaving this area). When you are ready, jump over the box at the end, and quickly take cover.
There is no cover here besides the boxes, so you're on the clock. Another three mercenaries will be with Navarro. Repeat the previous strategy until Navarro's boxes collapse and he runs off again (coward). Then take care of the other mercs.
Again, pick up any ammo lying around and head to next area. Be aware of the falling crates and hit circle when prompted. Then continue on and take cover. Now it gets a bit harder. Notice that Navarro's boxes are now unbreakable. The thing to do here is eliminate the mercs one by one until Navarro runs up onto the big platform. Don't just rush up after him, though, because there will be a guy with a grenade launcher that suddenly appears upon the railing of the big platform that Navarro ran up. Take him out, then go up.
(You may want to read this whole section before you do it.) Navarro get's in a cheap one. Duck into cover as soon as you can. This section is requires a precise set of actions. Wait for Navarro to lower his gun, and then quickly duck to the next set of boxes, and Navarro will destroy the set you were just behind. If you don't move fast enough after the second shot, you'll die. I think you can guess how this works. Wait for him to shoot twice again, jump to the next set, wait for him to shoot twice again, then rush up and punch him before he can do a follow-up shot. Quickly follow the quick time event prompts that pop up. Once that's over with, Navarro drops his gun and you both go down. Quickly run over to him and punch him again, then follow the prompts one last time.
That's it. Just sit back and watch the ending.
50 Kills: SAS-12 - Not exclusively here, of course, but it's one of the only two weapons you can use here.
50 Kills: M4 - Again, one of the only two weapons you get to use, so it may pop here. Anyway, on easy, it's a fairly short run, so it may be worth it to play through several times if you need either Trophy.
There are no treasures on this level.
