Complete solution for Broken Sword 2: The smoking mirror.

By Martin "Zaifrun" Knudsen (

Let's embark on a great adventure game (even though I liked the first
one in the series better! :-> ).

notice : When I write "use" it means you have to use the left
         mouse button. When I write "look at" use the right one.

This is how I completed this game but you don't have to do exactly
the same as this to complete the game.
Remember to save the game regulary - I experienced some game   crashes
and you can die in this game.......
Try to use this guide as a last resort only when you're stuck.

1. In the professors house

 After wathing the intro you find your self in a very bad situation...
 Use the bookcase and you will find a block of wood holding the
 bookcase. Use the block of wood to push the bookcase.
 Use the metal bracket on the wall to get those ropes off.
 Open the writing desk and drink the tequila. Pick up the worm on
 the floor. Open the drawer in the writing desk to find a pot.
 Look at the pot (in the inventory) and discover a key.
 Pick up Nico's handbag and the dart on the floor.
 Look at the note from Lobineau to get his phone number. Use the
 dart on the cabinet next to fire. Try to pick up the cylinder and
 then use the panties on the cylinder (it's very hot). Use the
 cylinder on the syphon on the drawer and then use the syphon to
 extinguish the fire. Open the door and walk down the stairs.
 Pick up the newspaper and look at it to find a bank statement    
hidden  inside it. Use the phone and then use the key on the left    
door and  exit.

2. At the Cafe.

 Look at the flask on the other table. Talk to the waiter a two times
 to get some cofee. Ask him about the flask. Lobineau will enter the
 scene. Ask him about the stone, the pot and the professor -    
generally  you should keep talking to people until there is no more to  
talk about. Watch scene with Nico. Ask the gendarme about himself  
until he looks down at the table. Exit the conversation and take the    
flask of absinthe. Exit the cafe and go to the gallery (window icon).

3. The Gallery.  

 Talk to Glease (the man at the desk).
 Show the pot to the man drinking wine (he's an art critic). Use the
 flask of absinthe on his glass two times and he will fall and smash
 a display case. Try to open the boxes in the back of the room.
 Take the label just found and look at it. Then talk to Glease

4. Marseille - guard house.

 Walk to the fence. Walk down the stairs and pick up the hook in    
the water. Look at the trapdoor under the house. Go up to the     window
and talk to the guard (get the dog's name). Go down the        stairs
again and use the hook on the bottle in the water - the one the  
watchman threw out. Walk up the stairs and use the bottle on the  
chimney to cool it down. Use the chimney to open it and use the    
bottle on the open chimney to block it. Get into the house by using    
the trapdoor. Pick up the dog biscuits on the table. Throw a biscuit    
on the platform and when the dog is standing on the platform then    
use the hook on the platform to get the dog in the water. Go up and
 climb over the fence.

5. The Warehouse
 Walk to the end of the building and climb the ladder and open
 the first window. Use the hook on the fan. Go back down and     knock  
on the door. Talk to the mexican man (Pablo) about the label - He'll
come out the door.... Quickly climb the ladder again. Use the
 barrel to right and when Pablo stands there use another barrel to
 knock him in the water. Go in through the door. Examine the drawer
 in the desk to find a brass key. Go further into the building. Talk
 to the little guy about the key you just found. Use the noticeboard
 on the wall over the desk. Push the button to the elevator.
 Use the nearest crate to block the photocell. Push the switch to
 right of the elevator door. Use the skratch marks near on the floor
 near the wall. Open the door and enter. Take the statue and talk to
 Nico. Untie her by using the rope she is bound with. Go out and talk
 to Nico. Use the tape on the photo cell and put the crate in the
 door back. Use the small crate which is on the top of the other crate.
 Move the other crate so you can use the pallet carrier to lift the
 statue. Use the rope on the statue and then use the rope to connect
 the statue to the pulley. Lower the pallet carrier again and ask
 Nico to help you with the big statue. Go out and use the manacles
 on the cable. Watch the sequence because you're going to South

6. Quaramonte City.

 Talk to the band. Talk to the american woman (Pearl). Go to the
 right and talk to Duane in the truck. Talk to Pearl again. Go up
 the stairs to the mining office. Talk to Conchita. Go to the police
 station and talk to the general. Use the map on the wall. Go out
 and talk to Nico. Go to the truck and talk to professor Oubier.
 Talk to Conchita about the professor. Talk to Duane again and
 learn about the detonator. Talk to Pearl about the detonator.
 Talk to Conchita about the detonator and the chart. Go out and
 talk to Nico about the chart. Talk to the general about the chart
 and Nico. After the general is gone talk to Renaldo (the other guy)
 about the pyramid. Tell Pearl about the pyramid and she and Renaldo
 will go there. Then examine the chart on the wall to find out where
 the things are supposed to happen and go and tell Conchita about it.
 Get the detonator from the cupboard and give it to Duane. Go into the
 prison inside the police station and talk to Miguel.
 Now you will take on the role as Nico...........
 Look at the swordfish, look at the lava lamp and the tigerskin and the
 portrait on the wall. Talk to the general about all these things
 and his mother will enter the room.
 Switching back go George...... After the "explosion" look at the
 rope in Miguels cell and ask him about it. Use the rope on the cell
 window and then give the other end to Duane who is outside the window.
 Watch the animation and change the CD for more adventure....

7. At the tree hut.

 Start by picking up the vine at the big wheel. Go to the left and
 use the vine on the press. Pick up the cross and use it on the
 press. Use the newspaper article on the damp leaves. Use the
 small ugly statue you have on the waterwheel.
 Talk to Hubert the priest about Nico and the Rod. Use the collar
 with the press and use the cross with the press. Pick up the collar
 and give it to Hubert. Ask about the rod again and he will take you
 to the village. Once there ask the guard about Nico, then mention the
 priest and ask about the shaman. You will have to give him a gift.
 Give him the dog bisuits. When the guard returns with the empty box
 put the mayan stone in the box to hide it and give the box to the
 guard again. Go into the village and talk to shaman. Listen to his
 story. Talk to shamen again and get the rod to save Nico.
 Back at the treehouse use the metal cone from the chimney with the
 press. Put the rod in the press and use the cross with the press.
 Pick up the cone and climb up the ladder into the treehouse.
 Now it is time for some stone hunting.......

8. Ketch's Landing - George.

 Talk to the man (Bronson) and try to take his plans on the table.
 Go down on the beach-bridge and talk to the boy (Rio). Then go up
 the stairs to the pirate museum. Talk to the old ladies and answer
 yes when they ask you about something. Go down to the beach and ask
 Rio about Emily. Go up to the house again and try to open the door.
 Then use the ladder and try to go up. Talk to the sisters again
 about the cat and Emely to get them away. Go to Rio and ask him
 about a fish - give him the worm for it. Wait a little and then
 try to talk to Rio again until you can ask about the fish. He will
 then catch a bicycle. Use it to get a tube from it and go up to the
 house again and then back (to give Rio time) to the beach and Rio
 will have caught a fish for you. Go to the house and give the fish
 to the cat. You'll then have to go to Rio to get another fish. Talk
 to him and wait until he catches another one. Go to the house again.
 Climb up the ladder and use the tube with the first flagpole.
 Climb down and use the fish with the tube. When the cat is gone take
 it's red ball. Climb up the ladder again and get the tube back.
 Use the tube with the tree to make a catapult. Then use the red
 ball as the bullet. When Bronson climbs up to the flagpole remove
 the ladder and pick up the marker he lost. Go to the beach and get
 the theodolite and the plans on the table. Go to the house and give
 the plans to the ketch sisters. You will then gain entrance to the

9. The British Museum - Nico.

 Look at the cabinet to the left of the room where the scrying mirror
 is in. Then look at the cabinet to the right of the room, next to the
 curtain - there you'll find the jaguar stone. Next talk to the
 attendent and about everything except the stone. The professor will
 enter the museum after a while. Ask the professor about the jaguar
 stone. When he leaves ask the attendent about the stone... you
 discover it has been stolen! Take the small key from the cabinet
 where the stone was. Show the key to the attendent and he will phone
 the police. Look at the red bag in your inventory and find a hair
 clip. Use the key on the case to the left of the phone. You will
 find a dagger. Take the key back from the case. Ask the attendent
 about the ship to find out where Oubier is going. Use the curtain
 next to the mask. Then use the dagger you just found on the exit.

10. Inside Captain Ketch's museum - George.

 Take the quill from from the desk. Take the lantern and use it on
 the ink well on the desk. Pick up the pirate map and place it on
 the desk - it fits perfectly. Next look at the pirate portrait on
 the wall. Open the sea chest near the window. Ask Emily about the
 cross and about Rio. Go back to Rio and talk about everything - you
 find out that you need to make a fly to him to get the sea shell for
 Emily. Go to the cat. Give the quill to it and pick up the rest of
 feathers when the cat has destroyed the quill. Give the feathers to
 Rio and you will get a conch shell. Give the shell to Emily. Use
 the cross you just got on the pen holder on the desk. Go to Rio and
 ask him to take you to Zombie Island (I hear evil laughter in the
 background - :)
 When on the island start by looking at the boat. Then ask Rio about
 his fishing net. Use the net on the rock outcrop to get up.

11. Subway station - Nico.

 Use the hairclip on the top coin slot that is at the blue vending
 machine to the left. Pick up the coin from the lower coin rejection
 slot. Use the coin with the weighing machine and get a white card.
 Use the dagger with the black cupboard below the subway map.
 Use the white card with the new crack. Push the red button.....

12. Zombie Island - George. (prepare yourself for the hideos monsters?)

 Take the upper exit into the woods. Pick up a reed near the swamp.
 Take the exit in the right top of the screen - you'll come to a
 small lair. Use the reed with the lair to get it cut. Then use
 the dart with the reed - now you are armed! Go back to where you
 climbed up from the cliff (go left, take lower left exit).
 Once back at the starting point take the lower exit. Walk right until
 you come to a boar. Use your new weapon (the reed and dart) on the
 boar. Take the right exit. You now are at the rock needle. Use the
 marker that Bronson dropped with the net. Pick up the creaper on the
 rock. Use the net with the creaper. Pick up the 'creaper with net and
 marker' and use it on the rock needle. Time to go into the jungle...
 Take the upper exit in the middle of the screen. Then take the
 upper right exit to get back to the lair. From there take the
 middle left exit to continue. Take the lower left exit. You should
 now be standing on the other side of the swamp. Take the middle right
 exit. You are now on the other side of the lair. Take the middle
 right exit again (there are 3 exits on the right side of the screen).
 Take the middle right exit again. Finally you should come to a
 high cliff point. Place the theodolite on the 3 holes in the stone.
 Use the theodolite. Pan the view to right (move the cursor to the
 right of the screen) until you can see the blinking marker in the
 bottom of the view. You can also see some stone pillars. Look at
 the marker and then use the pillar in the same vertical line as the
 marker. George will tell when you got it right. Exit the camera view
 and take the new exit to the right of the cliff to get to the beach.

13. At the harbour - Nico.

 Go to the first crate on the left. When the guard is past the ladder
 climb up to the roof. Wait for the guard to pass again. Then open
 the cupboard and climb back up the ladder. When he guard goes in to
 check it close the door behind him (heh). Pick up the mob and use
 it with the cupboard to really lock him up. Look in at the first
 little window and see the professor being killed by Karzac.
 Talk to Oubier! Then take the Jaguar stone now that you are sure he
 is dead. Use the dagger on Karzac when he tries to strangle Nico.

14. The Movie set - George.

 Pick a bun, a pancake and the syrup from the foodtable. Talk to Bert
 (the man next to the table). Talk to the director (Hawks). Talk to
 the girl (Sharon). Talk to the boy next to her (Haiku). After the
 shot use the syrup with the pancake and give the pancake to Bert.
 Use the bun on the bush. Take another bun and also use that one on
 the bush (poor Bert).

15. On the beach - George.

 Talk to Hawks about the movie and the cave. You are going to be
 stuntman now. Talk to the camera man about everything. Try to take
 the small handheld camera. Talk to Hawks again and you can get to
 the cave.

16. The jungle village - Nico.

 You don't need the white underpants you see in the start of scene.
 Try to pick up the Mayan stone to the left of the barrel. Look at
 the barrel and then ask Titipoco about the barrel. Pick up the
 Coyote stone and go to the left exit.

17. Outside the pyramid - Nico.

 Walk to left to the guards. It doesn't matter what you tell them.
 Pick up the cylinder at the generator. Then use your dagger to cut
 the fuel line at the generator. Use the cylinder to get some of the
 fuel. Then use the cylinder on the fuel cap on the machine to
 the right. Look at the engine and then look at the elevator. Pick up
 the rope and show it to Titipoco and ask him about it. When he is
 done, use the rope with the engine. Push the red button and pull the
 lever. Ask Titipoco to help you with the lever. Stand on the elevator
 and ask Titipoco to turn the lever. Going up....
 Pick up the green ammunition belt and use the elevator to get down
 again. What follows now is maybe a bug in the game or at least a
 very stupid puzzle. You have to go and pick up the giant torch in
 front of the pyramid right away. If you try to do something first,
 fx. talking to Titipoco you cannot pick up the torch and you cannot
 get up with the elevator again - very strange indeed I think.
 Anyway - show the torch to Titipoco and throw it on the fuel.
 Then throw the ammunition belt on the fire for some extra fun.
 Next talk to the general holding the gun. Talk to George in order to
 set him free. Inside the pyramid pull the left lever - you find out
 you cannot. So ask George for help. Watch the eclipse and get ready

18. The Mayan Machine - Nico

 You find yourself in a room with two big wheels with 8 different
 symbols on each wheel. To the right there is 10 tiles with symbols
 that are made up of one symbol from the left wheel and one symbol
 from the right wheel. Under the statue head there is another 4
 tiles with symbols. These symbols are made up of two of the symbols
 from the other tiles (the group of 10 tiles). You have to 'create'
 the 4 large symbols to open a secret door. Your have to figure out
 which two tiles from the group of 10 tiles that a large symbol
 consists off. Then figure out which two symbols on the wheels that
 smaller symbol is made up of. Then turn the wheels until the two
 symbols are beside each other (thats 3 o'clock for the left wheel
 and 9 o'clock for the right wheel). When the wheels are aligned push
 the symbol that you have created in the group of the 10 tiles.
 Create the other part of the large symbol by using the wheels again
 and push that small symbol. Now push the large symbol. Repeat this
 until you have created all 4 of the large symbols. Note that only
 two of the small tiles can be pressed at once. When all 4 large
 symboles have been pressed the secret door will open - enter.

19. Inside the pyramid - George.

 Pick up the torch on the wall and show it to Titipoco.
 Pull the lever on the wall (it's part of a painting) - you'll fall.
 Pull the lever on the wall in the new room and go to the left
 through the door. Pull the lever on the right to open the door. Then
 pull the other lever on the left. Go through the door.
 Only pull one lever - the one nearest towards the screen - that is
 NOT the nearest to George. Go through the door on your left. Pick up
 the torch on the floor and use it on the torch that is hanging on
 the wall. Take the newly lit torch on the wall and go through the
 secret door. Pull the new lever on the wall next to the stairs.
 Go down and that's it!! You made it to the end of Broken Sword 2.
 Watch the nice end sequence and listen to the cool credit music
 - hope you enjoyed the guided tour :-)
