Achievement Guide.

*** ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE ***

Prologue -25
Complete the Prologue

-This will be the first achievement you get. You get this after you learn the controls in the introductory stage. (Story line)

Master Survivalist -100
Complete the game on hardest possible settings

-It's a good idea to play through the game twice. First, on easy to get all collectibles, speed demons, swan dives, grenadiers, etc. and familiarize yourself with the puzzles.
-Then play the hard difficulty. Skip past some enemies and do not worry about the other achievements. You'll breeze through the puzzles, too. If you play through on easy and get all collectibles, you will still have those when you start on Master Survivalist. So your health bar is maxed from the start.

Treasure Collector -30
Find 10 Treasures

-See "Master Treasure Collector".

Skilled Treasure Collector -40
Find 50 Treasures

-See "Master Treasure Collector".

Dedicated Treasure Collector -50
Find 100 Treasures

-See "Master Treasure Collector".

Master Treasure Collector -60
Find all 179 Treasures

-Refer to THIS THREAD for locations.

Relic Collector -30
Find a Relic

-See "Master Relic Collector".

Dedicated Relic Collector -50
Find 3 Relics

-See "Master Relic Collector".

Master Relic Collector -70
Find all 6 Relics

-There is one relic per area, for a total of 6 relics.
-Refer to THIS THREAD for locations.

Swan Diver I -10
In one adventure, swan dive off one of the three highest points over water in the game

-This is in the room with the Kraken.
-Refer to THIS THREAD for description and pictures.

Swan Diver II -10
In one adventure, swan dive off two of the three highest points over water in the game

-This is on Natla's first cargo ship
-Refer to THIS THREAD for description and pictures.

Master Swan Diver -10
In one adventure, swan dive off the three highest points over water in the game

This is at the beginning of Coastal Thailand.
-Refer to THIS THREAD for description and a picture.

Climber -5
Execute a chimney jump of at least 2 wall kicks

-See "Master Climber".

Master Climber -10
Execute a chimney jump of at least 4 wall kicks

-There are ample places throughout the game where you can wall jump 4 times. I used a gap in the wall behind the kraken.

>To wall jump, jump towards a wall and press .
>When Lara connects with the wall, quickly press . Lara will jump back off the wall.
>Press repeatedly to have Lara bounce upward between the walls.
---(Instruction manual)

Speed Demon I -5
Drive into Xibalba in under 45 seconds

--Southern Mexico
-Save your game before you align the second calendar.
-You attempt this as soon as you align the second calendar.
-Have your bike parked outside the opposite side of the door your enter. You'll jump through this hole in the wall to exit.
-Align the calendar, watch the cut scene, mount your bike, maneuver the curves and turn Left at the intersection.
-This isn't too hard. Just don't bump too many walls, stall out, or fall in the pit.
-Press or for speed boost while holding , best used at start up or while catching air.

Speed Demon II -5
Drove from the top of Valgrind to the bottom in under 50 seconds

-- Jan Mayen Island
-A cut scene will show you the spiral path downward. Use the outside edge to avoid the various sized holes. Ignore enemies.
-I actually fell down one of the holes (on easy), survived and got there faster than intended.
-If you are collecting everything for your first play through, grab the treasure to the right, then dive over the edge to die on purpose to reset the time. You'll start back up top to retry your challenge.
-Again, not too hard. Just don't let obstacles slow you down.

Speed Demon III -5
Drive through the Valhalla Maze in under 40 seconds

--Jan Mayen Island
-After aligning the symbols on the cylindrical column, open the door and get on your bike. Ignore all enemies and collectibles.
-The directions are: Through the door -
Right - Left - Right - Left - Left - Right

-This should unlock when you reach the point between the two poles you pull down.

Master Speed Demon -10
Beat all three Speed Demon challenges

-Try and get these on your first play through. This doesn't unlock just because you have the other three Speed Demon achievements unlocked.
- This works just like the Swan Diver achievements. You have to get them in one succession. If you don't get it, then reload the save "Southern Mexico Xibalba" and play until you finish the Valhalla maze. It will take about 45 minutes (skipping collectibles) to get to all three challenges and should unlock when you pass the two poles in the maze.
-Do the times quickly since there's no indication that you finished in the set time. If it did not unlock, then at least one of your runs were too long.

Note: Reloading the save on your first play through will save over the previous auto saves, so you'll have to grab collectibles again.

Achievement guide, cont.

Roadkiller -5
Kill an enemy by running over it with the motorcycle

- You can run over a panther at the beginning of Southern Mexico.

Master Roadkiller -10
Kill five enemies by running over them with the motorcycle

-Only have to kill five enemies. Run over anything you can. You can hit the panthers and have this in no time.
-( + ) or ( + ) and steering L or R makes Lara do a doughnut. While she does this, panthers, spiders, etc. will kill themselves running at you.

Grenadier -10
Kill two enemies with one grenade

- See "Master Grenadier".

Master Grenadier -10
Kill three enemies with one grenade

- Easy on a group of attacking spiders, but can be used on other enemies. When 3 or more come at you, throw your grenade with .
Keep trying and you should get it.

Weapons Expert -5
Execute an Adrenaline Attack headshot on an enemy

-See "Weapons Master".

Weapons Master -10
Execute ten Adrenaline Attack headshots

- This will come with little practice and is similar (yet different) to the adrenaline head shot in TR: Anniversary. General combat will gradually increase the adrenaline level. It must reach the top before Lara can perform an Adrenaline Head shot. At the beginning of some battles, the gauge will already be full. Use this to your advantage.

>Fill the adrenaline gauge, (the smaller silhouette of Lara in top left of HUD).
>Press when the enemy draws close. Slo-mo will engage and you must quickly move your red reticule into the shaded gray area on an enemy's head.
>Then shoot with .
-----(Instruction manual, page 9)

Do this 10 times. Very cool, very fun.

NOTE: For these achievements you have to play through the game. Being this is an achievement guide, it should include how to get through every area and room in case someone gets stuck. Those parts of the game I left for the player to enjoy and solve.
If you really want aid in solving an area, I'll refer you to tombraiderchronicles.com. This site used an earlier version of my treasure list.

Any tips for combat? I'm not gonna lie, I'm finding it hard er than the previous two games. The first two were a little easy on hard whereas this seems to be unforgiving when it comes to combat; can't seem to find a technique to avoid getting shot.

There's hardly any Combat in the game anyway... I just jumped away non-stop while shooting and used Adrenaline Headshots whenever I could (press X nearby an enemy when your Adrenaline bar is full).

Pretty much what this other guy said, Just jump around alot and use your adrenaline HS when they get to close to you. But on the hardest settings on the game simply jumping around doesnt really help all that much. You got to make sure you pick the right gun in the begining. this is KEY on Hardest. Oh and Grenades, learn to stick enemies that have lots of other enemies around them.If this doenst help let me know and will figure something out.

Oh and the next two Secret achievements are
Jan Mayen Island Expedition-50
Andaman Sea Expedition-25
The last is the "Hell Level." Cant remember the actual name, But this level is all climbing, Any enemies are easly Beaten down with Thors Hammer

Does anyone know what is the lowest setting you can get the Master Survivalist achievement on? Some people said they got it on not the highest setting.

There is a white box in the same area you can jump off to make it easier. There's a link to a thread in the op with some pics of where to jump.

Also if you already have swan dive 2, you wont unlock swan dive 3 when jumping off the boat. You need to load at the boat, jump off, then play through to Thailand and do the dive there to get 3. See this post for more details:

2 out of 3

Ok, so I have 2 out of the 3 Swan Dive achievements so far.

This is how I got both.

I didnt know about the Kraken spot and the boat spot dives before I did my first in Thailand. So I unlock the first dive in Thailand.

Next, I fear a glitch coming on so I delete my save files and start a new game. So I do the Kraken spot, nothing, the boat spot, nothing and now back in Thailand I get the 2 out of 3 swan diving achievements on my new 2nd game.

Weird...what must I do to unlock the 3rd?

Thanks for this guide, looks good, but i got one question:
Is it needed to play through this game twice, for the hard achievement for 100G?
I mean, would you recommend, playing on easy first to get all the collectible achievements atc, and then play again on hard, or can it all be done on one playthrough one the hardest setting?

You can earn all achievements except Master Survivalist if you tweak those settings.

But if I use them on my first playthrough, and for the second I put everything back to normal and start the game on hard would I get Master Survivalist?
