Second-Story Work is the third chapter of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. The chapter takes place 20 years prior to the events of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, following a young Nathan "Nate" Drake in Colombia as he is chased across a series of rooftops by a group of suited agents.
Nathan "Nate" Drake stands on a rooftop across from a museum that is holding an exhibition on legendary explorer Sir Francis Drake, Nate's supposed ancestor. Nate is attempting to steal Drake's ring, after previously stealing the key that unlocks the display case holding the ring. Nate makes his way into the now-closed museum, but after stealing the ring and the accompanying astrolabe, the man that Nate stole the key off appears, along with a woman and several suited agents. The woman snatches the astrolabe from Nate and then attempts to take the ring, but Nate reveals that the ring is not in his hand, which leads to the woman slapping him. The woman attempts to slap Nate again, but the man stops her, which gives Nate a chance to escape.
However, the suited agents accompanying the man and woman give chase to Nate, tracking him across the rooftops above Cartagena. As the chase progress, the man begins aiding Nate by subduing the agents chasing him. Eventually, Nate is cornered by one agent, and even though both have a gun, Nate is unable to use his. The man then appears and shoots the agent, killing him. Nate and the man then go to a local tavern, where the man introduces himself as Victor "Sully" Sullivan. After questioning Nate about the ring and the Drake lineage, Sully states that Nate has talent and says he is willing to teach Nate a few things. After much deliberation, Nate agrees, stretching out his hand to accept Sully's handshake. Twenty years later, Nate and Sully lie in an alley, after being shot by Charlie Cutter.
Second-Story Work features three Treasures:
- The Dog-Shaped Incan Whistle is found beneath the balcony where Nathan "Nate" Drake uses an open window to get into the museum.
- The Silver Chimú Pendant is found in front of the exhibit about the ancient diving suit, directly across from the case containing Sir Francis Drake's ring.
- The Seventeenth Century Coin is found in the doorway next to the exhibit showing the boat wheel.
