  • Kill 15 Uruks with quick shots in 30 seconds.
  • Bonus: Kill 4 Uruks without leaving Focus mode.


  • As long as you are accurate, this mission should be fairly simple. Do not worry about charging your bow shot and just quickly fire. Running low on Elf -shot is no worry, as you are surrounded with unlimited resupply spots.
  • The bonus objective is easily accomplished if you have purchased at least one Focus upgrade.
  • Have fun! This mission is a nice change of pace.
