Head up the stairs and into a door.

Into the Acropolis - Find a way to the Acropolis

You'll find that this hallway is in pretty bad shape. There's a cart on fire to your right. Drop off the bridge to the right where the cart is. In a space under the bridge, a lantern and PROPHET'S ARRIVAL (DOCUMENT 1/10) will be on the floor in a small alcove.

Climb back up and head outside. You'll climb some rocks and a craggy rock wall.

Into the Acropolis - Enter the Acropolis

Make a zip line and head forward until you see some helicopters. Go down the stone path to your right and jump off it when you get to its end. SURVIVAL CACHE 1/3 is near the tree that is by the end of the stone path. Near the tree is a green tent with STRONGBOX 1/3 by its side. In front of the big open tent near the green one is Remnant Bazaar Base Camp, so make sure to light it. Head down to another big open tent with STRONGBOX 2/3 and COMMON BLOOD (DOCUMENT 2/10) to the strongbox's right.

Exit the tent and head left. Near the burning wood is FIRST WINTER (DOCUMENT 3/10). Go right of the open tent with the strongbox. On a crate is STEWARDS (DOCUMENT 4/10) and near the document, under a makeshift roof of quilts, is a hanging WALKIE TALKIE 1/6. Shoot it down. In yet another open tent to the left on the path to the objective beacon is RELIQUARY (RELIC 1/3). Examine the inside of the case to earn more XP. Go back to the second open tent (the one with the strongbox and the document) and take the path behind it to its right (this side of the tent is on fire). Go straight and SURVIVAL CACHE 2/3 will be to the right of a the left tent (the one that's not too close to the fires).

Continue to the objective and get a short cutscene.

WALKIE TALKIE 3/6 will be to the right center, under the second makeshift quilt roof. WALKIE TALKIE 4/6 will be at the back right under a makeshift quilt roof.

Follow the objective beacon, killing soldiers along the way. Here I would suggest being as quiet as possible to earn more XP from stealth kills. After you fall near some stairs due to an explosion, there will be bottles next to you. Grab one and sneak around to one of the guards. Once you're close enough, as long as you have the Deadly Force skill mentioned before, stealth kill one of the soldiers with the bottle to unlock:

Head up the stairs and light Riverside Landing Base Camp, collect MISSING (DOCUMENT 5/10), and translate the MONOLITH. COIN CACHE 1/3 will be in a corner near the door you blew up. Go to the left of the stairs and collect LANGUAGE OF THE LAND (DOCUMENT 6/10) on a wooden platform. Jump to the bridge and BULLAE (RELIC 3/3) will be to the left, next to the fire. Head across the bridge and blow up the metal barricade.

After another metal barricade, shoot WALKIE TALKIE 5/6 to the left under the makeshift quilt roof. Pass the bridge with explosive red barrels that you should definitely shoot and you'll reach a relatively open area. Once you kill the soldiers here, head to the objective beacon.

Rescue Mission - Defeat the Trinity forces

After a cutscene, head back to the previous area and take a right. Near a pile of ruble is SURVIVAL CACHE 3/3. Go back to where the cutscene triggered and collect DANGEROUS ERRAND (DOCUMENT 7/10) and destroy WALKIE TALKIE 6/6 under a makeshift quilt roof. Light Tower Courtyard Base Camp.

Note: The arrows point to the same window

When you exit the base camp menu, head in the direction Lara is facing and collect an ARCHIVIST MAP. Go to the objective beacon and defeat some soldiers in the narrow passageway. Collect THE REVENANT (DOCUMENT 8/10) to the left of the doorway leading out of the narrow hallway. In the next room, you will have to fight a shielded guard. Head into an open room where you fight more waves of Trinity soldiers. A cutscene will play once you finish. You'll obtain the WIRE SPOOL and unlock:

Back to the Forest - Find a safe path back to the Remnant Village

Zip line across the gap. An EXPLORER SATCHEL will be on the ground to the right of the hanging beam (the object that's you'll swing from using the grapple axe).
