Shadow of the Tomb Raider Guide - Collectible Locations Walkthrough, Skill Points Upgrade Guide

Here's our full Shadow of the Tomb Raider guide, featuring puzzle walkthroughs, Mural, Document, and Artifact collectible locations, and more.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider marked the third entry in the rebooted Lara Croft saga, when it released for PC, PS4, and Xbox One back in September. In this Shadow of the Tomb Raider guide, we'll be providing you with a complete list of collectible locations in certain open areas of the game, as well as puzzle solutions, and more.

If you’re after a full review roundup of Square Enix’s latest Lara Croft adventure, you’ll want to head over to our Shadow of the Tomb Raider everything we know guide. Not only can you find a review roundup of the game here, but you can also find all the pre-order and gameplay details you need to know, ahead of the final launch.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Guide

Just below, you can find a full list of our Shadow of the Tomb Raider guides. We’ve divided lists of collectibles up by area, so you know how to find all the Murals, Documents, and other collectible items in Cozumel, Kuwaq Yaku, and more, as soon as we’ve made our way deeper into Lara’s latest adventure.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Tips

But if you’re instead after some simple tips and tricks for getting started with Shadow of the Tomb Raider, you’ll want to check out the list just below.

  • Pressing in the right analog stick will let you scan around the nearby environment, letting you see the outlines of enemies, but also collectibles and animals if you unlock the corresponding perks.
  • Speaking of perks, you can use your accumulated Skill Points at base camps to upgrade Lara, unlocking new combat and environmental abilities for her.
  • You'll bag a Skill Point for roughly every 100 XP you gain, and Lara earns XP through killing enemies, completing puzzles and tombs, as well as scavenging plants, animals, and collectible items.
  • Healing is different in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Hold down the left bumper, and you can press either Y/Triangle to enhance your perception ability, or A/Cross to heal Lara.
  • There's no breath meter for Lara while she's underwater, so pay attention to the vibration of your controller. The faster it vibrates, the closer Lara comes to drowning.
  • Whenever you spot a patch of mud on the ground, press X/A to have Lara cover herself in mud, letting her blend into nearby walls covered in vines.
  • For crafting arrows, hold down the right trigger to craft normal arrows, and the right bumper to craft fire arrows.

This marks the end of our Shadow of the Tomb Raider introductory guide. As we mentioned before though, we’ll be sure to update our guides whenever we come across anything new in the game, like an especially difficult Challenge Tomb. For now though, head on over to our Shadow of the Tomb Raider review, for our own thoughts on Lara Croft’s latest game.
