Jan Mayen Island - Gate of the Dead

I read some threads complaining about missing boss fights ... I find this one difficult enough:

How do you fight the 6 (?) thralls at the bottom of the spiral? They always re-animate because you have no time to stomp on them. I found no way to separate them. And you only have two medipacks at this time (no time to get the third).

Any ideas?

You mean right after you come down? Use the motorbike. ;-)

Wow, you're fast! Thank you.

It worked perfectly. Thanks again. Sometimes you don't see the forest for trees ...

Gate of the dead missed bits?

Fussel, mow them down with the bike. So where’s the bike cannon, “budda! Budda! Budda!!”. Perhaps that’s too close to judge dredd (his lawmaster has twin bike cannons) . But seriously, wouldn’t be a bad idea for a future game. i run all the baddies over even inside the caves. excellent!

Snow & Ice level, great! But where’s the breath? There’s breath mist in the cut scenes but not in the gameplay. ‘was in TR3. No excuse!

Ok, so in this picture there are two poles. On the right and another left (above bike). I know what the right one does, but what of the left. Early on, near the entrance was a closed end passage. Could this be a timed door? Ive tried getting back there as quick as possible, but no go. Also there’s no sound. So either, im completely off track or way too slow. Any ideas?

The only other thing is here. It’s too far to jump. The far end with the diagonal edge was also near another strip early on in the level. I tried to jump it, but it was too far. Did I not try hard enough earlier? Or is there some way here to get there. I missed a treasure outside to the left (or to the right from the adjacent chamber), I can see it but cant get it.

thanks for any help.

Could this be a timed door?

Spoiler Spoiler

Yes, it is. You have to be really fast. It took me about 10 tries to figure out the route and then another 5 times to finally get there in time. ;-)
