As if the game wasn’t huge enough with all the Island exploration, secret items and relics to collect and locations to find, Tomb Raider also has 7 optional Tombs scattered all around the island in addition to the one present in the main story. Since these tombs are completely optional, there’s no reason to search for them and complete the puzzles withing if you’re just going to complete the story of the game. There are, however, a few advantages in completing these optional tombs: completing them will give you some extra XP which is pretty good, considering how many skills are in the game and how much EXP points are needed to master all of them. At the same time you’ll be able to find some extra items and relics, as well as simply enjoying more of the excellent Tomb Raider gameplay. If you’re looking to 100% the game and obtain all trophies and achievements you will have to complete all seven extra tombs, since the Intellectually Superior trophy / achievement is unlocked only after completing the extra seven tombs. Another tomb is available as DLC, the Tomb Of The Lost Adventurer, but it’s not required to obtain the trophy/ achievement. In this guide we will cover all the extra tombs with tips to find and complete them.
- Chamber Of Judgment
In the Chamber Of Judgment you will find the second half of the Treasure Map of the Shanty Town area. To reach the tomb, head to the eastern section of the southern part of Shanty Town, right below the gondola turn around building.
To reach the climb-able rock at the beginning of the tomb you will have to use the short plank ramp. You will have to use at least four jerry cans to keep the ramp up and allow Lara to reach the wall: any less will result in a failed jump. Two jerry cans can be found on the cave floor, the other two are on a wooden platform nearby. Use the tyre to destroy one of the platforms and make the can fall.
Once on the wall, keep climbing up to find the treasure chest with the second half of the map.
