How I Solved Tomb Raider Bug: Killing Father Mathias – 2013

How to kill Father Mathias: E button not working

I have seen posts saying “Can’t mash E fast enough *ending/spoilers* “.  That is actually true, even though you press the ‘E’ button repeatedly, you still won’t be able to kill Mathias.  Its a known bug in the game.  I discovered a way to solve the problem.

Press F when it shows the red icon. If you press it correctly Lara will stab Mathias


Then press Esc go to ‘Graphic Options’  change the resolution to 800 x 600 and save it.


Go back and resume the game, Now when you press the E button Lara will push Mathias and finally kill him.  This is how I solved the problem. I’m not sure of the cause but anyways it was a pleasure to play Tomb Raider and I can’t wait for the sequel.

Thanks again for reading and your comments are highly appreciated.

  2. Hey Trilma it not worked for me ! 🙁

      • I’m sorry to hear that. That is the only solution that worked for me. These gaming companies are only interested in earning quick bucks. A lot of releases have bugs. Try to download save game file and proceed.

  3. terima kasih banyak! sangat menolong 🙂
