Breaking and Entering is the second chapter of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
The Lower Area
By means of an inflatable speed boat, Nathan Drake, Chloe Frazer and Harry Flynn head to the Istanbul Palace Museum, taking a alternative route to enter the location: the underground area of the museum. Nathan uses a blow torch to rupture the gate, unlocking it on an upper cliff side. They investigate the area until they reach a position where the groups discusses Chloe’s part in the plan: shutting down the lights in the second courtyard allowing the two to pass, then getting a van to escape with. Afterwards, Chloe leaves in the opposite direction as Flynn and Nathan. Flynn points out that there is a gate nearby that will lead to the boiler room. Both start making their way down the sewer, until they reach a big circular brick lined shaft going up, which narrows to a smaller circular shaft with a manhole cover at the top. After Flynn gives Nathan a boost, they climb up to the boiler room. After free-running their way to another room, they find that steam is blocking their way. Soon after, Nathan finds the shut off valve, letting them go further. Right before entering the actual upper part of the museum, they're blocked by a gate. Nathan manages to disconnect the junction box, shutting down the security camera and letting them break through the gates. Two guards patrol the area, which are soon knocked out by Nathan.
Nathan makes his way further through the second courtyard, defeating many museum guards as he does. When done, both make their way to a metal gate, which alone is not a problem, but blocking their way onto the next courtyard is a security camera. Nathan climbs up the gate and shuts down the junction box, causing the security camera to do the same. Now able to go further, Nathan picks up the gate, letting Flynn slip through. On the opposite side Flynn does the same for Nathan. Leading into the second courtyard, Nathan melee executes many patrolling guards in the area. They both climb up a structure on the right of the courtyard, where they stealthily go through a window. Nathan and Flynn hide behind a long box, discussing a way to execute the museum guards without alerting the others, or setting off an alarm. Flynn decides to use two tranquilizer guns, giving one to Nathan and himself. With their newly found guns, they eliminate all patrolling guards in the area. Getting out of the area, they make it over the rooftop using ropes, pipes, cracks, and acrobatic skills to get closer to the building containing the exhibit. Once near, they wait for Chloe to shut off the lights. After a while, Chloe does her part allowing them to get into the building with a rope.
The exhibit in the museum contains the Mongolian Oil Lamp inside a glass container. Flynn soon figures out how to open it without setting off any alarms. Nathan breaks the item. Hidden inside the lamp was a blank piece of old parchment with nothing on it and several chunks of resin. Drake, realizing that the resin will burn gets a lighter from Flynn, and lights the small pile on the floor, revealing secret marks on the parchment. The "light of the Great Khan" reveals the invisible marks left on it by Marco Polo. Concealed on the parchment is a map of Indonesia and Borneo, showing the location of the "Lost Fleet" on the west coast of Borneo. Drake is then betrayed by Flynn, who was just using him, and who then sets off the alarm. Museum guards then show up and run after Nathan, whom escapes unharmed, but soon is captured by Turkish authorities who are waiting for him at the end of the sewer.
After three months, Nathan is still trapped inside one of the Turkish jails room, hallucinating with his hands trying to entertain himself. Both Sully and Chloe enter his room. Chloe says that she had had no knowledge of Flynn's treachery, and that Victor Sullivan would secure his release. They discuss the Cintamani Stone, and Flynn's client Zoran Lazarevic. The group heads into a house, where they discuss Lazarević's plans to wreck Nepal to find Shambhala, which houses the Cintamani Stone. They decide to use Chloe as a decoy to get inside Lazarevic's dig site in Borneo.
