[edit] Summary

After boarding the train in the previous chapter, A Train to Catch, Nathan "Nate" Drake must make his way through Zoran Lazarević's train in an effort to find Chloe Frazer. However, Nate's presence has been detected and a number of Lazarević's soldiers have been dispatched; all of which Nate must kill.

Whilst he is making his way through the train, Nate also comes across a turret gun and a helicopter operated by Lazarević's men. The helicopter keeps attacking Nate, forcing him to take cover, until the train enters a tunnel, leading to the next chapter: Tunnel Vision.

[edit] Treasures

There are three Treasures to be found in Locomotion:

[edit] Behind the scenes

The concept of Locomotion and its successor, Tunnel Vision, involves treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake battling his way along a train while the landscape flashes by in the background. This was one of the first ideas thought up while Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was in pre-production. However, the Naughty Dog development team didn't want to follow suit with what previous games have done - where the train is static and the background moves by, creating the illusion of movement - instead, they wanted to do it for real, with the train moving.[2] The train featured in these two chapters comprises of 50 individual train cars, and despite being among the earliest chapters that were conceived and created, they proved to be some of the final chapters completed during the game's production.[3]
