Uncharted Wiki

Tetram is the "Gas Mask soldier". His model is used for the grenadier soldiers archetype in the singleplayer campaign and Co-op (Known as Tetrams). Tetrams appear in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Drake's Deception multiplayer.


This grenadier soldier exclusively use M32-Hammer grenade launcher.The gas mask should be the first thing that call your attention but the straps of grenade launcher shells on their chest should signal a heavy threat. Make the grenadiers a priority and take them out quickly.

Official description of the grenadier soldiers archetype

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves[]


Tetrams are the grenadier soldiers archetype of Lazarevic's army. They wear a gas mask and have M32-Hammer rounds strapped to their vest. They also wear brown camouflaged sleeves and trousers.


Tetrams are armed with the M32-Hammer. They usually stay distanced from the player,firing rounds at their enemies one at a time, making them very effective at eliminating groups of people, even if they are behind cover. Since they are armed with an explosive weapon, they do not use grenades and can be difficult to deal with due to their weapon's power but is otherwise easy to deal with. It is highly recommended that players take Tetram's Hammer after they drops it, as Dragans, Zorskels, or Heavy Soldiers usually follow behind them.


In online co-op, Tetram uses a much different style tactic than they did in single-player; they only rarely uses the M32-Hammer. Instead, they carry M4's or AK-47's and chases the player (they do not wear M32-Hammer rounds and now have black camouflaged clothes). They take cover if they realize that they have been spotted, but rarely use their weapon.

If a Tetram manages to get into close proximity of a player or if the player tries to melee attack them, they will put the player in a choke hold, almost using them as a human shield. When the choke hold is active, a circular blue meter, similar to the dying meter, appears on top of the player's head, and rapidly decreases as the player is being choked. If the player rapidly taps the triangle button, there is a chance that they can escape, but this is extremely difficult to do. Not only that, but other soldiers near Tetram will shoot the now helpless player. If the meter is drained completely, or if all other players are killed while one is in a choke hold, Tetram will snap their victims neck, swiftly ending their life. However, other players can free you from Tetram's choke hold by either shooting them from behind or melee attacking them. All this trouble can be stopped early if you can manage to kill them as they are rushing up to you.

A good tactic to use against them is to "run-n-gun" at them, or dropping a grenade right behind you as they are chasing you. They usually appears later in co-op arena games after the 4th round, and is most likely encouraging players not to stray too far from each other.


Tetram appear in Among Thieves multiplayer. Vodnik is free and available to be equipped anytime.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception[]


Tetram is available in as a DLC skin (as part of the Classic Skin DLC pack) for Uncharted 3.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End[]

An enemy similar to Tetram appears in Survival known as the Hunter. They carry either the Para .45 or the Agarwal .40 and appear in three variations. These three variations are regular, armored, and brute. The regular Hunters move the fastest but have the least health while the brute Hunters move the slowest but have the most health. Hunters may also be Sidekicks in multiplayer.
