The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers

Strategy Guide

  • Misty Mountains level in multi-player mode

    Successfully complete the game with all eight artifacts to unlock the Misty Mountains level in multi-player mode.

  • Gimli level in multi-player mode

    Successfully complete the game with two characters on any difficulty setting to unlock the Gimli level in multi-player mode.

  • Hidden ending sequence

    Successfully complete the game with all characters to view a sequence featuring squirrels and a Cave Troll.

  • Easy levels and gems

    If you are having too much difficulty passing a level, wait until you are about to die then save your game and quit. Restart that game and you will start back at the beginning with full health, full spirit, the experience you just gained, and all enemies are re-spawned for you to kill again. Repeat this several times to gain easy level ups, gems for buying power-ups and items, and to rack up kills in order to reach the 500 point skill increases.

  • Easy spirit

    Find a place where Orcs, Trolls, Wargs, young Wargs, or Goblins cannot get you. For example, in the stone fence above the health pool when you are against the Fargon Troll (only the little Troll can get you). Then, stand still for about six to ten seconds.

  • Duplicating items in multi-player mode

    Trade an item from character one to char two saves and have both turn off the game. Both characters should now have the item.

  • Use Overdraw quickly with Legolas

    For those who use Overdraw with Legolas, use the following trick to eliminate the delay when he starts the attack. Press B (normal attack) then immediately before he shoots the arrow, press A (which should be set to Overdraw). You will hear the "whoosh" sound if done correctly To charge the Overdraw, hold A after pressing B.

  • Defeating the Balrog

    When you are facing the Balrog, immediately go to the top left corner. Shove yourself in as far as possible. The Balrog will appear, hit the wall, and always miss you. Then, launch fireworks or Zaps at him. If you really want to kill him the old fashioned way, sit there while pressing B.

  • Artifact locations

      Bilbo's Map (Aragon, Frodo, Legolas)

      Found in a Dimril Dale map. An elf will ask you to recover a lost item from some Orcs. Two Orcs will be guarding a chest and one of them will drop the artifact when you kill it.

      Narsil, the Sword of Isildur (Aragorn, Legolas)

      Found in Lothlorien at the bottom of the map. It can also be found by Frodo in Crinfanti.

      Chain Link of Morgul (Aragorn, Legolas)

      Found near the end of a Rohan map called the "East Wall". You start the level between three bushes (one big on the right and two smaller ones on the left). A bright blue Troll will appear and start running away. It invincible, but you can follow it to a cave. The chainmail will appear there.

      Sauron's Ashes (Aragorn, Gandalf, Legolas, Frodo)

      This is found in a tower at Helm's Deep up a large flight of stairs in the "Gorge" level to the north. It is the map immediately after you defend the broken wall with Gimli. A chest will appear to the left of the forge after opening all the boxes and chests on the northeast wall. Frodo does not go to Helm's Deep, but he can find the Ashes in a Mordor or Emyn Muil map.

      Moria's Lamp (Legolas)

      In the map where Legolas, Aragorn, and Gimli meet Gandalf, Moria's Lamp is hidden in a secret area at the top of the map. You have take a path to the right of the screen and group, then left. When you walk into the edge of the screen, you will disappear to another area where you can easily get the lamp.

      Balin's Book (Gandalf)

      This is found in Balin's Tomb before the Cave Troll enters, just below the actual tomb.

      Troll Tusk (Frodo)

      Found in Moria (just after the bridge of Kaza-dum). The Troll Tusk can be found in the northeast corner.

      Judkins Scrolls (Eowyn)

      In one map, a woman will ask you to clear town hall (a large building in the center of the area). Instead of immediately going in, go near it, then wander around the level for awhile, killing things and collecting items. When you return (usually), you can find the artifact in front of a wood pile to the west of the town hall door.
