The two solutions which already have been posted are fantastic and deserve your thumbs up. They got me through 28 of the 29 challenges, but I was stuck on the toughest one, Copper Mill. I beat it twice today and have created a video walkthrough in case you get stuck as well.

After Copper Mill, the next-toughest Gold medal requires 250,000 points and most hover around the 150,000-230,000 range; the tombs require 5,000-30,000 points to get gold medals on. But for some reason, the Copper Mill requires 700,000 points. You can reach this score with a good bit of planning and by using the first place on the leaderboard's cards to give you a +350% multiplier.

As long as you have 2,000 credits, you should be able to press cn_A to view details of any leaderboard player, and then on the bottom of the screen you'll see another option to press cn_A to "play with these settings." I found the easiest card lineup to be:

First Aid: No auto-regen (which is disabled in Survivor difficulty)
= +100%
Toxicity: Unlimited poison arrows = -50%
Holstered: Reduced pistol damage (which is irrelevant since you're using poison arrows) = +50%
No Leftovers: No ammo pick-ups (irrelevant since you're using poison arrows): +100%
Armor-Plated: Enemies have double armor strength (irrelevant since poison bypasses armor) = +100%

This means you receive your score +300% (or 4x your score) and the only penalty is that you have to use unlimited poison arrows. Grip is a pain in the ass and One Life To Live can be frustrating if you don't have an area memorized. However, in this case, the best option was to use someone's card set which included One Life To Live, so I was very careful once I reached the score goal to make sure I survived the level even if it cost me my combo multiplier.

EDIT: HolyWarr27 has created a playlist for gold medals without the use of cards. Check it out here: m/watch?v=5peuFX8wbLk&list=PLRhsb9b6OrYSFG9AJlRbnHK8lB-06SfJB&index=1

Please feel free to reply in the comments. I'm on TA frequently, answer all questions, and give credit to anyone who contributes to the solution.

CleverKitten276I can't get a Gold Medal on The Lost City. There are people on the Leaderboards who beat this level with 482 kills but 0 score pickups. That's not fucking possible. How can you clear this level and collect no Wisps? I need to see a video for this level cause I don't understand

Frankie DrumsNYThey're using an exploit. Judging from those scores, there's a way to farm an enemy who keeps respawning. I did it by memorizing the level and it took e a few tries. I tried twice again yesterday and couldn't get gold again.

CleverKitten276I need to find out what this "kill exploit" is and use it. No one on the Leaderboards wants to tell how they used it, and yet people with top scores are using it. The highest I can get is a damn Silver. I can't understand when/where this particular enemy spawn is and where Lara has to stand at to shoot them. Looks like I won't be getting the Golden Child Achievement.

Nukes A Lot 2No matter how hard I try, I cannot seem to get the gold on Siberian Wilderness.
For some reason this level is kicking my behind... I've mapped out my moves ON paper and found a solid strat yet for some reason I keep losing my multiplier shooting distant targets with poison arrows. The game seems to damage the player for shooting targets with poison arrows over a long distance.

Any tips, tricks, or suggestions?
The other levels aren't hurting me like this one...

Frankie DrumsNYThis guy did Siberian Wilderness Gold with no cards, so I followed his video and got it on my second or third try:

HolyWarr27To add to Frankies post, I have created a playlist for levels with gold without the use of cards. Its a work in progress but I hope to have the rest finished soon. Below is the link to the playlist. Hope it helps, good luck.

FoolsAndKingsJust a pointer. You need to take the space out between the "o" and "m" of .com to make the video link work
Posted by FoolsAndKings on 22 May 16 at 04:37
Frankie DrumsNYYes, that is deliberate so the video doesn't embed.

Frankie DrumsNYx The Horrorist I'm not sure what you're asking, You have gold on all levels but you're stuck at 93%? I don't have anything to offer you for levels besides this one, and the video guide does a comprehensive job of walking you through what needs to be done. Just keep your combo meter up.

GHOST INS1DEGreat solution - got it on my first attempt following your path. Many thanks :D

Ksar96I'm having only Xbox one X, can I able to finish all the levels on ONE X and finish the last one level on ONE S (from a friend's Console), does it helps to unlock this achievement? or still it'll be glitched?
Posted by Ksar96 on 11 Feb at 05:05
Frankie DrumsNYKsar96 We don't have enough data on this glitch to be sure.
Posted by Frankie DrumsNY on 11 Feb at 13:35
CorleoneGangYes this unlocks the Xbox Series S...I did all the the other achievements on the Series X and score attack on the Series S with no problem...
