Retrieve the Champion’s Bow is a Side Mission in Shadow of the Tomb Raider and the third part of the Hearts and Minds questline. This walkthrough shows how to complete this Quest.
Quest Giver: Uchu
Requirement: Unlocked just before the last story mission (can still be done after the story)
Reward: Manko’s Tunic & Beast of a Legend trophy
Quest Location – Retrieve the Champion’s Bow
Just before the last mission of the main story you will also have a chance to finish the 3rd part of the hearts and minds questline. Talk to Uchu in the Skull Cave in order to start it.
Objective – Enter the wilderness / Examinate the wilderness
As you have probably expected, your are also the person to retrieve the 3rd item needed for the coronation of Etzli, since the other person failed. Uchu tells you to head into the jungle just outside the town.
Head through the creepy tunnel and explore the jungle part. Head through the small opening in the rock to enter a new area, with a cave in the middle.
Objective – Find the Champion’s Bow / Defeat the Nahual / Approach the Nahual
Once you enter the cave, the bow will be there for you to grab… but you will be attacked by a huge masked jaguar. You will have to fight the jaguar, but do not worry, since it only takes a few arrows to get rid of it. Once you have defeated it, approach the dying jaguar in the cave.
Objective – Return the Champion’s Bow to Uchu
Once the Nahual is dead and the bow yours, return to Uchu to finish the mission. Uchu will also invite you to be a guest at Etzli’s coronation. Seems like a nice move, since you basically did all the work for the coronation to happen. Enjoy the cutscene and your Beast of a Legend trophy at the end.
