View Full Version : Collectibles/Challenges Guide

08-23-2010, 10:25 PM

This guide is to help you get all collectibles and challenges done in the game. Click on any of the below levels to be brought to that specific level's guide. There is information on everything you need to know about getting all artifacts, weapons, relics, and power-ups. To make things easier, I will be using a color coded system so you can skim through it easier, as well a videos. If you are having any problems figuring out what to do in a level (to beat the level in general) just watch the challenge videos that deal with beating the level within a certain amount of time. Though sometimes the videos end before the level does, such as Spider Tomb, because it wants you to do a certain objective. The exit is usually just seconds away. Read the top part of the level guides for a brief description on what the main objectives of the level are. The purpose of course is to get you the Tomb Raider achievement.
Also, if there are any edits I need, please send me a PM so I can fix it (color coding error, grammatical error, etc).

Color Key:

Artifacts: Pink
Weapons: Blue
Relics: Purple
Health Upgrade: Green
Ammo Upgrade: Light-Blue
Red Skulls: Red
Challenges: Orange

Achievement Hunter did a video specifically on the Red Skulls and Jeeps for Temple Grounds.

Thanks. I kept missing 1 of the 2 trucks at the start of the lvl. Bleah.

Just one tip of advice for Stronghold Passage: Once you have points, don't get hit. Ever. There's not enough points in the level to get 120,000 otherwise. Even without getting hit, you'll get it right before the final area.

Oh, and the third spider tile is in the room with the boulder you have to bomb/grenade across the gap. It's in the corner.

and another great guide from Tyger7.

I have to say, that your guides are the best on this side, to explain everything so well and you have video guides too.

Pretty sure it took a lot of time to make this, so thanks for your effort. ^^

Thank you!

Some of the collectibles were a pain to find, these videos really helped.
Great Achievement guide as well :)

10-30-2010, 04:25 PM
For this achievement do you have to get those total high scores listed at the bottom of the level select screen that are in the millions?

If so, you should know that co-op score doesn't count towards them.

Thank you for this excellent Guide! It was helpful and is very accurate and allows to finish the game at 100% :)

This game is underrated. It's great!

The video guides make it more bearable, so you don't spend forever solving where an item is located and how to get to it, or how to complete a challenge, i.e. where to place a bomb to move a stone.

The game was even fun playing on casual difficulty.

One note about the videos:
You killed me using the spear all the time. I suppose you were showing us how doable the challenges are even by using the spear. It's a tool, not a weapon.
The original handguns were my most useful.

Great game. I highly recommend it when it drops in price again.
I got it for 600msp (originally 1200msp) as the Deal of the Week (DotW).

Actually...co-op does count, as myself and a friend ONLY played this game in co-op to unlock the alternate Lara looks.
That being said, you don't need them for the cheevo.

07-02-2014, 06:56 PM
Thanks for this mate, I can't tell you how grateful I am!

08-02-2014, 02:47 AM
Wow, you did really good work there tyger7... thanks alot for the last 25G you helped me to achieve :woop: :*

Thanks for the guide, Tyger!

Hi everyone

The game has glitched on me and not given me the tomb raider achievement for collecting all the relics etc. despite having met every challenge.

As far as I can tell, I still need the clay arrow for killing leglion the spider queen in the spider tomb level, and the artefact from toxic swamp, I think the golden arrow of tezcatlipoca for collecting ten red skulls.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to un glitch them that definitely work?!

I've tried clearing cache, reinstalling the game, replaying the levels. I also tried downloading some dlc, which I found a comment online that said it might patch it.

Reading online says that playing through a level in co op might unlock these items - so can anyone spare an hour (probably not even that long!) to run through these two levels quickly?

Happy to help new people through the game as well if needed - I just really don't want to have to delete my game save and start all over again!

05-15-2015, 09:08 AM
Finally I got this achievement. Great guide, would never complete the game without it. Thanks!

Thank you for these.
