During your journey trough the Island trying to survive is one of the most important things to do. In Tomb Raider you will have plenty of ways to improve your performance, making surviving the harsh environment easier than it looks like. We have already covered pretty much all the skills that Lara can learn by acquiring some experience points by doing a lot of different actions like gathering loot from the ground and from dead animal bodies, fighting enemies and so on. While all skills may not be too useful in the beginning, unlocking and mastering all of them will bring you some important advantages. Together with the skill system, you will also be able to improve your gear and weapons by finding spare parts for the four weapons in your possession: Bow, Hand, Rifle and Shotgun. Some of the extra parts will be available as part of the story while others need to be found and are completely optional. Each new part comes with a salvage cost so think carefully before buying one of the upgrades: at the same time there’s enough salvage to purchase all the upgrades but you will have to find all crates, hunt all animals in each area and loot as much as possible. Just make sure to buy the upgrades you really need in a specific moment. In this guide we will cover all the possible weapons upgrade starting with the Bow and then moving on the other three weapons.
- Rifle Upgrades
Rifle Upgrades are unlocked during the course of the game. Opening salvage boxes and looting enemies will make you find bow parts. Unfortunately there’s no set location for these parts since they’ll be found randomly in specific areas in specific points of the story.
The Polished Ejector upgrade does something really simple but effective at the same: your rifle firing rate will be increased, improving your battle performance. To obtain this upgrade you will require 250 Salvage.
The Scope is another self explaining upgrade: it increases the level of zoom when aiming with the rifle, improving the accuracy of your shots. The Scope upgrade will cost you 250 Salvage.
The Silencer upgrade will allow you to become more stealthy when using the rifle, removing all the noise after shooting and preventing nearby enemies getting alerted. This upgrade will cost you 500 Salvage.
