  • Possibly due to her inexperience Lara made multiple mistakes during her adventure that nearly killed her. When confronting Mathias she threw her icepick away before attacking him in hand to hand combat, she also used a badly performed shoulderthrow in which she pulled herself in a chokehold. When she was on top she sacrificed top control to go for a triangle choke which ended up with him turning the tables. On several occassions she turned her back towards her attacker or exposed herself in ways that allowed them to kick her, grab her hair or harm her in other ways.
