Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Walkthrough Shadow of the Tomb Raider allows you to adjust the difficulty level of the game in great detail. You can choose one of the pre defined levels or pick different settings for each element of the game combat, exploration and puzzles. To complete the game for the first time, it is best to choose the normal difficulty (Rite of Passage) for all settings.
Note the difficulty level of each of the game’s main elements (combat, exploration, puzzles) can be changed at any time during the game in the pause menu. The decision you make when starting a new game is therefore anything but final. If, for example, you encounter some trouble with a puzzle, lower the difficulty to get additional hints from Lara.

Survivalist’s Digest -Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Walkthrough
Here are some of the most important information on how to keep the main heroine alive more effectively. Lara can easily die if you are not careful, but thanks to our tips the risk of death should be significantly reduced. Some of the topics covered here are described in more detail in other chapters of our guide.
Watch out for traps. Traps are mainly found in crypts and tombs, but you can also bump into them on your way to Trinity camps, for example. They are available in two main varieties. The first of the most commonly encountered varieties are traps with spikes that suddenly come out of the walls. In order to disarm any such trap, you must place yourself at the line strung across the passage near the ground (example in the picture) and press the interaction button to activate the mechanism before Lara gets within its range. You can then crawl under the expended trap.
The second variant are spike pits and they are more troublesome, as some of them are covered with stone blocks an example of this type of trap is shown in the picture. Try to look for them carefully, when traversing booby trapped locations and jump over the holes or, as a last resort, run quickly across the stone floor before it collapses.
It is worthwhile to purchase the Crow’s Cunning skill (costs 2 skill points). It allows you to highlight traps in the game world when survival instinct is activated. This will make the game much easier if you often on this mode when exploring.
Try to take out your opponents by surprise. Whenever possible, you should act stealthy. This will make it easier for you to win battles, especially if your opponents are better armored. Before starting a battle, check if Lara can put on a muddy camouflage. It makes it difficult for enemies to see the heroine and allows her to blend in with the surroundings in additional places. As for the very way of elimination, it’s best to rely on stealth takedowns (they become available after sneaking near your opponent) and the bow (aim at the head, but remember that enemies in heavy armor will shrug it off like nothing). If you can use survival instinct, rely on it to find enemies and determine whether they are in the field of vision of other enemies (easy targets are marked in yellow).
If, despite your best efforts, you find yourself in an open fight (which is unavoidable, for example, in the case of encountering wild animals), rely primarily on frequent dodges. Additionally, it is not advisable to stay too long behind the same cover, because your opponents like to throw Molotov cocktails or other explosive surprises.
Some skills can help you to get rid of your opponents from hiding. For example, Serpent’s Strike allows you to kill silently and Serpent’s Fury allows you to get rid of two opponents standing close to each other.
Watch out during those difficult jumps. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider Lara can easily die from a miscalculated jump that ends in the abyss or simply way lower than it began. If you are not chased, try to plan every move, especially if a climbing axe is required to stick to your destination wall. If you forget to press an additional button, Lara will lose her life.
Another important issue is the ability to slip after catching the edge of a new shelf. Also here you have to be ready to quickly press the action button (the time window is unforgiving if you have set exploration difficulty on high). It’s worth mentioning that such errors on Lara’s side can be eliminated by unlocking Howler’s Speed skill.
Which skills to unlock first -Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Walkthrough
Below we have listed the most important skills, which in our opinion should be unlocked early in the game. You can buy skills for the first time when you reach the camp and sit by the fire. More information about character development can be found in other chapters of our guide.
