Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Museum Guards are civilian enemies found in Breaking and Entering of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.


The guards are Turkish individuals with dark skin that wear black trousers and a white shirt. Some of them wear green berets. They carry nothing but a radio and a flashlight, the former of which is only used if the player alerts him.

Combat strategyEdit

If the player is spotted by one of them, they will radio the other guards and the player will be caught. This fails the mission and automatically sends the player back to the last checkpoint.

Drake and Flynn both use non-lethal melee methods to incapacitate the museum guards. Nate will choke a guard until he is unconscious, rather than break his neck. Flynn will usually strike the guard hard enough to knock him out. However, it is possible for Drake to perform the neck-breaking animation on the guard by the fountain, though this is purely due to game mechanics.

At the start of the chapter, they can only be defeated by stealth, as Nathan Drake and Harry Flynn will cooperate to dispatch the guards. When they arrive at a room with four guards, the player is given a Tranquilizer Dart Gun, which is only effective at close range.

After Flynn betrays Drake, the guards will use laser-equipped Desert-5s and will attempt to shoot Drake. They will only shoot when Drake remains stationary or attempts to attack with the Tranquilizer Dart Gun, which will be out of ammo. This is one of the only two occasions where they'll actively attack the player, the other being hand-to-hand combat.
