Right after returning from Cenote you will receive a Serpent Guardian Outfit from Ushu. In this same cave a new Side Mission will be available from a Guy called Poma.
Objective – Free 4 rebel prisoners
This side mission is very straightforward. You simply have to visit the 4 locations marked on the map and untie the prisoners, while wearing the Serpent Guardian Outfit. There are no enemies or guards near them and it is impossible to fail the objective.
Each one of them will tell you a bit about what exactly happened and you will find out, that the 5th rebel who was believed to be dead is still alive.
Objective – Return to Poma
Once you have rescued all the prisoners, return to Poma. Lara will inform Poma about Colqui, the 5th rebel, still being alive. The mission is finished and you will get a reward, as well as automatically unlock the 2nd mission of the Freedom mission line called Save Colqui.
