The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum Chapter Two Walkthrough


In the previous chapter one, the attempt of Gollum to escape from Nazgul failed. Ring-Wraiths take him to the pit below Barad-Dur. The journey in the pits is a long one. Here we will guide you on carefully completing each objective to complete Chapter Two; The Maggot.

Go to Mustering Yard And Report To The Beast Master

After being captured by the Nazgul, Gollum finds himself in the pits. The journey continues in a cave where he must rest beside the window to start the next day. Upon waking up, exit the cell and follow the path located to the left of the door. At the end of the path, you will arrive at the Mustering Yard. Proceed to the right, where you will find a cage filled with people. Follow them as they move, and eventually, you will reach the Beastmaster.

Follow The Frail Man And Cage The Borocs

When you reach the Beastmaster your next objective is to follow the frail man and he will take you down in the pit where you have to cage Borocs.

How To Cage Borocs?

Instead of engaging in a fight, make the enemies aware of your presence and quickly run towards the gate. If Borrocs or any other enemies approach you, seek higher ground where they cannot reach you. Use the advantage of elevated positions to evade their pursuit.

Report To The Mine Orc And Collect 8 Tags

After dealing with the Borrocs, make your way to the mines where your objective is to collect eight tags from the bodies of the deceased. Engage in a conversation with the Mine Orc, and following the subsequent cutscene, follow the frail man to the location where you will commence collecting the tags from the deceased individuals.

Tag Locations

First Tag Location

Once the Frail Man comes to a halt, continue walking along the narrow path to descend into the mines. Utilize the wall to aid you in crossing to the other side of the deep hole, and then leap onto the platform situated in the middle. Hang from the edge and jump down and across to reach the ledge below, positioning yourself closer to the ground for a safe entrance into the actual mines.

Upon landing, you will notice two workers ahead of you. Behind you, a body lies on the ground. Collect the tag from the body, and then proceed to climb down the ladder.

Second Tag Location

Turn towards the flowing lava and make your way toward the right side to locate the second body.

Third Tag Location

Return to the ladder and take the path on the left side. Continue following that path until you reach a lift with a lever. Pull the lever to activate the lift, and then ride it upwards to reach the area above.

From there, follow the path in a clockwise direction until you come across the third body. Afterward, climb the pillar located behind you.

Fourth Tag Location

To reach the Fourth tag location jump backward multiple times to reach the top of the lava using baskets. As you approach the scaffolding, you will come across two possible paths. Choose the right side. Run along the wall to cross over a gap, and you will discover the fourth body.

Fifth Tag Location

Descend the two ladders close to the body and head towards the right side, away from the pair of orcs positioned at the bottom. In the middle of the path, you will find an alcove on the right side where the fifth tag is located. Pick up the tag from there. Afterward, climb down another set of ladders.

Sixth Tag Location

When you land between the third and fourth ladders, you will notice that the area is spacious but devoid of any objects or obstacles. Look along the edge near the entrance for the fourth and final ladder.

On the right side, there is a worker who is still alive but in critical condition. However, his survival is unlikely. You have the option to take his identification tag, which will exempt you from completing the final climbing section. Alternatively, you can choose to leave him be.

Seventh Tag Location

After making your decision, proceed by taking the path on the left side. Continue along the path until you reach its end, where you will encounter a wall that you can run up to access a climbable section. Jump towards the left side, maneuvering behind a pair of orcs engaged in conversation.

Continue advancing, and you will come across a tag near a cave-in on the right side.

Eighth Tag Location

If you decided to take the identification tag from the dying man, the game will automatically take you back to the Foreman. However, if you chose not to take the tag, you will need to continue along the path to locate the eighth body and retrieve the tag from it.

Day 2: Report To The Mine Orc And Detonate Barrels

After collecting all the tags, return to the Mine Orc and conclude the day by going back to the cell and sleeping beside the window. Once you report back to the Mine Orc, a new objective is assigned to Gollum. Follow the Frail Man, and your task is to detonate barrels. It is crucial to escape as quickly as possible to ensure Gollum’s survival.

  • There will be a tunnel behind you. Continue descending further using jumps and back jumps.
  • Enter the right-hand tunnel, which leads to the first barrel. Insert the red stone into the barrel.
  • Quickly retreat along the path you came from to avoid the smoke, which can be lethal to Gollum.

How to Detonate the Second Barrel:

  • After escaping from the first tunnel, wait for the Frail Man to pull another lever.
  • Head into the tunnel on your right.
  • Follow the path in the tunnel while avoiding the smoke.
  • At the end of the tunnel, you will find the second barrel. Insert the red stone into it.
