Help Lara attack Tyler's gang
I've finally paid Tyler back for what he did to my brother.”— Lara
The gang at the church consist of 5 NPC's, one armed with a sledgehammer and four armed with 10mm pistols. Stick around long enough to watch Lara's gang cut down Marc, the doorman. The Chosen One can then talk to Lara to receive your payment.
If the Chose One steps inside the church during combat or after Marc is dead, he will have to fight the other 4 NPC's, as they will go hostile. He must be careful not to hit any members of Lara's gang!
An alternative to the solution suggested in the quest title does exist. When Lara first gives the Chosen One the quest, telling her he needs to prepare, then quickly shoot over to Tyler and inform him about Lara's cunning plan. Tyler will request for the Chosen One to follow Lara to the church as normal, but turns on her when the battle begins. Doing so will net the Chosen One the same 1000 Experience Points and some negative Karma.
To spare the lives of the guards inside the church from Lara's gang, close and lock the door to the church before accepting the mission. As long as the Chosen One does not attack and damage Marc, the guards within the church will remain neutral to the him and to Lara's crew even after Marc has died. Lara will reward him and the quests is completed. Lara will reward the Chosen One after Tyler's partner Marc is vanquished and combat is ended. He may then unlock the door and let Lara's crew inside, where no harm will come to the four guards although they are still flagged as hostile. To resume hostilities, simply fire upon a guard.

If you are playing the Restoration Project version, which includes cut content, the quest will develop differently. Lara will ask you to follow her to the church as usual, but just a few guards from Tyler's gang will be there. After the Chosen One is finished with them, she will ask you to finish them for good at the Residential Area of the Den. There he will find Tyler, three of his guards, and a prostitute (indicated by the in-game description "she looks quite "worn" on her). Help Lara kill them to gain the rest of the experience points and the money reward.

- If Lara dies during the attack, the quest is still considered complete. Her body will contain the $300 reward and an additional $100 that she awards you as a bonus if she survives.
- After finishing the quest, you can not loot the dead guards for their metal armor.
- One of the reasons she wanted to kill Tyler because Tyler did something bad to her brother, the other was to prove Metzger she's capable doing his work.
- Often the guards will run off screen where you can't hit them while you are fighting them making it impossible to target them yourself.
