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.
- Tomb Of The Lost Adventurer
The Tomb Of The Lost Adventure is a DLC tomb which is currently available only to those who have preordered the game. The tomb can be accessed from the Coastal Forest, after you have retrieved the Makeshift Bow and Pry axe. The Firestriker, Shotgun and Grenade will help you access more salvage and supply containers. Reach the mineshaft in the area to access the tomb: use the arrows to get past the first blockade.
To get to the tomb’s treasure you will have to ignite 5 different objects to create a ramp from the plane’s wreckage: the first one point will burn after shooting down the first lantern you’ll meet in the tomb; the second point is close to the crane, just shoot the latern and you’ll start the burning; the third one is near a corpse with a lantern close to it, shoot the lantern just like before; the fourth one is the trunk covered with some sheets, just thrown one of the lanterns into the truck to make it burn; the final point is past the plane’s wreckage: get back to it and use a fire arrow onto the cargo to clear the way and get the treasure.
