Chapter 10 - Only One Way Out

Path of Light is the ninth chapter of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.


Nate and Chloe venture deeper and find the location of Shambhala, only to discover Lazarević's mercenaries have infiltrated the temple.


This chapter takes place almost entirely in one large chamber, where you must position rays of light in the correct direction to lower a series of three blades from the ceiling. Lowering these blades opens access to the next area.

Move the first mirror to reflect light at the face far across the room, then head over to it and insert the Phurba Dagger into its mouth to lower the first of three blades.

Climb up the newly lowered blade, and make your way to the one that's still extended high above the room. Teeter across it and jump to reach the nearby face carving. Climbing up the face reveals an opening where light bursts through for you to make use of soon.


Nate scales a blade

Head down to the nearby walkway and climb down to the level directly below. Chloe positions a mirror across the room from you to reflect light at the one near where you are. Move that mirror to send the light beam into the opening at the bottom of the large object hanging from the ceiling. Head over to the face that's on the same level as you and place the Phurba Dagger into the mouth to lower another blade.

Use the steps that appear as you head towards the ground floor to climb up the blades again. This time, the blade you're on breaks away from underneath you. You must shoot the spot on the face where light seeps through while hanging. While hanging from the green object, move to the left some, then look to the upper left and shoot the small flashing white circle. It will drop down. This is the #36 Carved Jade Figurine Treasure. Climb up the green object and face Drake towards the medium sized mask with the open mouth. Jump towards this mask; it will be a long jump but Drake will make it. After Chloe positions her mirror, run to the left to the mirror and aim it at the green object hanging from the ceiling. Head over to the mask and place the Phurba Dagger in its mouth to lower the final blade.

The giant blade drops into the floor and opens a passageway via the mouth of the giant statue on the floor. Drop in to reach the next area.

As you enter the underground room, insert the Phurba Dagger into the pedestal to reveal a map and end the chapter.


Number Name How to obtain
#35 Copper Lahke Mask In the room with the giant dagger. After you've climbed up the first blade of the dagger, move over to the walkway on your right. Follow it all the way to the end and it will be at your feet. Make sure to get it before dropping the second blade of the giant dagger, otherwise it will block off the previous path you just took.
#36 Carved Jade Figurine After dropping the third blade of the giant dagger, turn to your left and look up. You'll have to shoot it to get it to drop. Get it before moving back to the start of the room.
#37 Bronze Ganesh Statue After venturing down the large statue's throat, turn and move around the room to your left. It will be in the middle of the path.


  • Whenever the player moves the light onto Chloe's face, she'll warn Nate to knock it off.
