There is a full scale raid on the Indian village that Thomas and Ray have to repel. This fight will cover all of the non-stop action in chapter 12. I'll explain how to survive the cannon barrages, how to drive back the initial assault, and how to finally escape and destroy the cannons.

A Surprise Raid
It's time for one heck of a battle. Turn and see if you can take out a few men by the cannons above the village. Then get to the center totem and fire out at the approaching men from the cliff. Just lean out and fire. I saw about 5 soldiers coming toward me. Push forward to the next totem pole by the star. Take cover and start picking off the guys on the cliff. Turn and fire at the men on the lower road. Watch for the next grouping over on the bottom right, in between the cliff and you. Just keep firing with the pistol and take them out as quickly as possible. They do a lot of damage, so don’t be a hero. Stick to cover and just try to survive for now.
A cart with a Gatling gun should roll up soon. Turn and open up on the gunner quickly before he turns the gun off of your brother. Kill the other guard and then get onto the Gatling gun. Fire at the 3 waves of 3 soldiers until some cannon fire ruins the party and blows up your wagon. When you recover, stand up and stick close to your brother. It’s cooler if you don’t sprint and just stick close to your brother. The scripting works better, too. Just ignore the “help your brother" notices. Nothing you can do about the cannon fire for now.

As you approach the back area, turn to the left and shoot the one soldier, then do the climbing trick to get up a level. Go to the star and crouch by the rocks, then keep firing at the men approaching the position. Hold out for a minute. You’ll probably kill about 5 or 6 before the cannon fire gets close. Run back and duck behind the rocks to hide for a second. Do the climbing trick again to get up to the next level when your brother tells you to retreat.
Get up to the series of totem poles and get close to your brother to talk. Head off with him up to the cliffs. It’s a long walk, but just hang in there and don’t fall off. Go up to the cliffs.

Blowing up the Guns
You will soon reach the cliffs above the cannons. You need to blow up the big rocks and drop a landslide on their heads.
Go down onto the cliffs below the rocks. You’ll only have 10 seconds to escape once the last charge is set, so start at the bottom and plant the last one on top. Rush back a bit before the charges go off.
Just hop down a level and lean over. Shoot down at the riflemen and kill a few of them to give Ray a bit of cover. They don't seem to give him much trouble anyway. Fall back once the charges are set.
This short chapter is over once the cannons are destroyed.
