Tomb Raider Relics Map Locations Guide


The harsh island on which young Lara Croft finds herself stranded and fighting for survival hides many secrets. These secrets can be covered by getting your hands on scattered collectables.

One of the collectable types is Relics. Relics can be acquired from the first area of the game. They come in various shapes and form, and are mostly ancient Japanese items. What makes them so interesting are the clues they give of the island’s history.

The relics can be simple things like coins, or can be symbolic artifacts like masks, ceremonial fans, daggers, helmets, and more. The thing about relics is that they are well-hidden, and can sometimes be found in the most unlikely of places. Thus, it is generally a good idea to keep your eyes peeled for them.

Another important thing to remember is that some relics, like other collectables in the game, will require special equipment, such as the rope arrows, fire arrows, and climbing axe. It’s thus important to attain these items and revisit some camps to collect the previously un-collectable relics.

In total, there are 42 different relics that can be collected. As stated earlier, they are split into several categories. You can unlock two achievements, i.e. Relic Hunter and Archaeologist, if you collect most of the relics. A third achievement, called No Stone Left Unturned, is earned if you collect all the Relics as well as Documents and GPS Caches.
