Tomb Raider Treasure Maps Locations Guide

By   /   Mar 3, 2013

If you’re an achievement hunter and are looking to dig out each and every little grain that may be of value in Tomb Raider, then perhaps the first thing you should be looking for is the set of Treasure Maps in the game.

Treasure Maps are by far the most important items Lara can find after the ever-essential weapons and equipment. The main and only purpose of the Treasure Maps is to reveal the locations of all the collectables in the game, which is obviously an attractive offer for those treasure hunters out there.

This should allow you to collect some challenging achievements like No Stone Left Unturned, which requires you to collect all the collectable items (Documents, Relics, and GPS Caches) on the island.

Because of the informational value of the maps, they are not as easy to find as your everyday salvage. There are a total of 14 different maps in the game, of which 7 are located in tombs. We’ve already written in detail of the tombs and the steps involved to successfully raid them.

Know that there isn’t just one type of treasure map in the game. Some treasure maps may reveal all three types of collectables in a certain area of the island, while others may reveal a specific type of collectable only.

In addition to that, the areas that contain the treasure map often require you to use most of your equipment, such as Rope Arrows, Fire Arrows, the Ice Axe, and in rarer cases the Rope Ascender. Thus, it’s important to know the items you have before you go searching for these maps.

As stated before, 7 of the 14 treasure maps can be found by raiding the seven tombs in the game. The remaining 7 are scattered all over the place, and will often require you to look in some of the unlikeliest of places.
