Other Achievements Rise of the Tomb Raider Guide

My Own Worst Enemy

Description: In the Score Attack mode, complete a level with a card bonus of 200%, or more

How to obtain:

To obtain this one, you need to have, at least, several cards that weaken Lara or strengthen the opponents. Each card is provides you with a bonus after you use it, as well as with a percentage value. You unlock this achievement, after you start the stage with the selected cards, whose value is, at least, 200%. It is best to try to obtain this achievement on a level with a tomb, where the risk of taking damage is lower. You simply need to use two cards then, e.g. the one that disables health regeneration and the one the deprives you of ammo at the beginning of the stage. Then, you need to complete the selected stage.

Challenging

Description: Complete any challenge tomb

How to obtain:

To obtain this achievement, you need to complete any challenge tomb. In the game, there are 9 of them - you find one in the Glacial Cavern and in the Lost City, there are 3 in Soviet Installation and 4 in Geothermal Valley. Descriptions of all of the tombs have been provided in separate chapters of this guide.

English Pedigree

Description: Headshot an enemy from a distance larger than 25 meters

How to obtain:

You should be able to obtain this achievement during the main storyline, because this will provide you with plenty of enemies. To make things easier, get the abilities that make using the bow easier - Dead Eye, or True Shot, thanks to which scoring a headshot will not be a problem. Just remember to stand as far from the opponent as possible.

Way to Go

Description: In Score Attack mode, complete every level with, at least, bronze score

How to obtain:

In Score Attack, you need to obtain a specific amount of points for each score - brown, silver or gold. What affects your score are factors such as time taken to complete the level, points that you obtain for finishers, avoiding damage or bonus provided by the added cards. It is not too difficult to strike brown - it is a good idea to pick Veteran difficulty, or higher, because this way you receive higher multipliers for killing streaks. Try to complete this level as quickly as possible, thanks to which you receive extra points (calculated at the bottom of the screen), kill enemies stealthily and in streaks, and collect glows that continue the streaks. Additionally, make things more difficult by adding cards that weaken Lara or strengthen opponents, which will boost your score towards the end of the challenge. If you want to obtain all of the achievements, you need to score gold in each level that you replay, thanks to which you obtain the Golden Child achievement.

Weaponsmith

Description: Fully upgrade one weapon

How to obtain:

During the game, you can upgrade several types of weapons, while sitting by the campfire. For each upgrade, you require materials that you find during the game, as well as parts that you find in chests or buy at the store, in the case of more advanced upgrades. For this reason, getting upgrades for all the weapons is time-consuming. It is better to invest in the weapon that you use most frequently. For the purposes of this achievement, you can focus on getting upgrades for the hatchet. There are few of them and this way it is the easiest.

Keen Eye

Description: Unearth 40 survival kits

How to obtain:

Survival kits are a type of collectibles. You find out about their whereabouts after you find explorer's satchels (whereabouts of individual kits have also been marked on maps provided with this guide). It is also possible to find kits without knowing their exact whereabouts - simply keep an eye out for glitters on the ground, which is where the kits are.

The Price of Truth

Description: Complete the game at any difficulty level

How to obtain:

All you need to do to obtain this achievement is complete the main storyline at any difficulty. If you are looking for a challenge and you want to obtain other achievements at the same time, pick the highest difficulty, which then wins you the "Ultimate Survivor" achievement.

Was That Really Necessary?

Description: Kill any animal with an explosive

How to obtain:

Find any animal (you can, e.g. find lots of rabbits in the first camp that you visit in Geothermal Valley) and kill it with either a grenade or a grenade arrow.

Fluent

Description: Gain maximum proficiency at one language

How to obtain:

One-Sided Conversation

Description: Kill an enemy in stealth, while he is having a conversation

How to obtain:

This is yet another achievement that unlocks automatically. To obtain this one, you only need to get, from behind, an opponent busy with conversation and perform a melee attack (finisher). Also, you can perform this on single opponents talking over the radio and you find, at least, several of them during the game.

Looking for Trouble

Description: Complete 5 challenges

How to obtain:

For this achievement, you need to complete five challenges that you find in several locations. To learn about the challenge, you can check out the map and find out what the aim of the challenge is. Points in which you can complete the challenge are not marked on the map (apart from the first one that you discover) - their descriptions have been provided in this guide. Also, it is a good idea to complete challenges during your initial visit to a location, thanks to which you do not waste time on returning to that location.

Self-Improvement Junkie

Description: Buy all the skills in one category

How to obtain:

With your progress into the game, you will be gaining skill points that you can spend while in camps, on new skills. To obtain this achievement, you need to develop, at least, one tree to the maximum. To speed this process up, it is best to get the Avid Learner skill early into the game.

Master Fletcher

Description: Craft 25 special arrows of each type (fire, explosive, poison)

How to obtain:

Of course, you should obtain this achievement during the game. If you have the materials, Lara can craft special arrows, apart from the regular ones. It is a good idea to do this, because special arrows can make the game easier. If you have not obtained the achievement during the storyline, you simply need to get the materials that you need, craft several arrows and then empty the quiver to make room for more.

Ultimate Survivor

Description: Complete the game at the Survivor difficulty level

How to obtain:

Completing the game at the highest difficulty may be challenging, which is why you need to remember to use covers, stealth takedowns and auxiliary skills.

Compulsive

Description: Complete every challenge

How to obtain:

To get this achievement, you need to complete challenges that you find in several locations. To learn about a challenge, you can check out the map and find out whet the aim f the challenge is. Locations, in which you complete challenges are not marked on the map (apart from the first one that you discover) - their descriptions have been provided in this guide. It is a good idea to complete challenges on your initial visit to a location, thanks to which you do not need to waste time on returning to the location.

Untouchable

Description: Replay 5 different levels without taking any damage

How to obtain:

You can obtain this achievement in the Adventure mode. You need to complete the stage that you pick without taking any damage (including long falls). It is best to use cards that boost Lara and complete the stage at the elite difficulty, where you keep the equipment and skills that you obtained during the game. The easiest to complete, are the initial stages, where there are weaker opponents, as well as the ones with tombs, where the risk of taking damage is relatively low.

Fearless

Description: Defeat a Deathless Swordsman, in melee only and with a finisher

How to obtain:

You start encountering the Deathless towards the end of the storyline, e.g. in Path of the Deathless, or the Lost City. To unlock this achievement, you need to learn the Dodge Counter and Dodge Kill skills, whereas the Dodge Skill Mastery skill makes things easier, because pulling off one results in instantaneous death of the opponent. First, locate the opponent and kill the weaker ones and archers around him. Then, approach and, at the moment at which the Deathless is attacking, you can dodge (by pressing the button at the appropriate moment) and counter right afterwards. In the case of the Dodge Skill Mastery skill, dodging will suffice. Otherwise finish the enemy off with the hatchet or dodge again.

Reading the Past

Description: Translate a monolith

How to obtain:

To translate monoliths, you need to be familiar with the language at a specific proficiency level. You raise your proficiency by examining murals and reading documents. The first monolith that you find requires you to know Greek at the first proficiency level - you learn it by examining murals around the monolith, thanks to which you can quickly unlock this achievement.

Laying Down the Law

Description: Kill 6 enemies with the revolver and without reloading

How to obtain:

Unlocking this achievement requires you to kill each enemy with one bullet only. This means that you need to be accurate and aim at headshots each time. To gain this achievement, it is a good idea to replay the Acropolis, where you end up in the yard with several opponents, right after you start. You should easily be able to eliminate, at least, two of them from hiding. Then, retreat to the path that you got here, so that you get away from the opponents as far as possible. Turn around and kill two more and finally, repeat that maneuver. It is important that you do not swap weapons during the fight and do not reload. Also, it is necessary to fire only when the crosshair is on the enemy's head (if you have unlocked an appropriate skill, the crosshair turns into a red circle). To avoid damage while replaying this stage, pick the lowest difficulty level possible.

Blade of Justice

Description: Perform 25 special stealth kills using the knife

How to obtain:

During the game, you will have opportunity to perform stealth kills on enemies oblivious to your presence. To perform a kill with the knife, you need to make sure that you do not have the bow equipped, because this is what Lara uses for choking enemies instead.

Firestarter

Description: Defeat, at least, two enemies, with one Molotov

How to obtain:

You unlock this achievement without major problems, while completing the storyline. The easiest way is to throw a Molotov between two enemies that do not suspect anything - this will set them on fire and you gain the achievement.

No Stone Left Unturned

Description: Achieve 100% completion of the game

How to obtain:

To achieve a 100% completion of the game, you need to complete the storyline, as well as all of the side missions, find each collectible (these have been named separately for each location, which makes it easier to find them), and also complete all of the challenges, tombs and crypts.

Truth Seeker

Description: Collect 25% of all Narrative Assets (relics, murals and documents)

How to obtain:

You can find collectibles in each location. To obtain this achievement, you need to find 1 of them all and this goes for all the types of collectibles mentioned above. Exact whereabouts have been provided in a separate chapter of this guide.

Gilded

Description: In Score Attack mode, complete a level and score gold

How to obtain:

In the Score Attack mode, you need to reach a specific score for each grade - brown, silver and gold. Factors that govern this are time taken to complete the level, points obtained for killing enemies, how well you avoided taking damage and bonus received from the added cards. To score gold, you need to break some serious sweat - it is best to go there at the highest difficulty, which brings up the multiplier for killing streaks. Try to complete this level as quickly as possible, thanks to which you receive extra points (calculated at the bottom of the screen), kill enemies stealthily and in streaks, and collect glows that continue the streaks. Additionally, make things more difficult by adding cards that weaken Lara or strengthen opponents, which will boost your score towards the end of the challenge. It is a good idea to disable health regeneration here (which is unavailable anyway at the highest difficulty), or enable the option thanks to which you start the level with no ammo on you (your first stealth kill should enable you to obtain it). It is best to pick a level with a tomb here, where negative bonuses do not have a major effect on the course of action.

Craftswoman

Description: Craft 5 elements of the equipment

How to obtain:

You can easily obtain the achievement during the storyline. Lara can craft various pieces of equipment, while in camps, using elements that she obtains during exploration. Crafting 5 elements of equipment is therefore no challenge at all.

Dead Ringer

Description: Score 25 headshots with the bolt-action rifle

How to obtain:

To unlock this achievement, it is necessary to get the most powerful rifle - bolt-action rifle. Then, during the storyline, or after you complete it (e.g. while replaying a stage) locate a group of enemies in any location and fire several accurate shots. It is easiest to load the game again, after a while and repeat this action several times.

Siberian Ranger

Description: Beat 15 combat encounters after completing the game

How to obtain:

After you complete the storyline, opponents will keep appearing in various locations (e.g. Siberian Wilderness, or Soviet Installation). To unlock this achievement, you need to start and win 15 fights. It is not the body count that counts here, but rather the number of groups/patrols that you eliminate - one such group usually consists of 3-4 opponents. Watch out, at the same time, because there may be a soldier with a flame thrower among them and he is one of the more demanding enemies.

Rapid Recovery

Description: Regenerate health for three times in combat

How to obtain:

If you have medicine on you, you can regenerate your health during combat. Do this three times, after a fight starts and you quickly unlock this achievement.

Tomb Raider

Description: Complete all Challenge Tombs

How to obtain:

To gain this achievement, you need to complete all of the challenge tombs, within one game save. In total, there are 9 tombs in the game - one in Glacial Caverns and in Lost City, 3 in Soviet Installation and 4 in Geothermal Valley. You can complete the tombs in any order you want.

That All You Got?

Description: In a single Score Attack level, complete 3 Replay Challenges

How to obtain:

Replay any item and complete, at least, three out of the five challenges that you can pick before the stage starts. Remember that only the challenges that you have earlier picked count. Again, you can pick Acropolis here - it is a good idea to pick the challenge connected with, e.g. stealth kills, finishers from covers, bow finishers and Collector challenge, where you need to collect all of the items. There are quite a few enemies. Killing them with the weapon of your choice and from cover is not a problem. Remember that you need to complete all three challenges during on approach to the stage. Which stage, ad which challenges you pick plays no major role.

Woman of the People

Description: Complete every mission

How to obtain:

In Soviet Installation and Geothermal Valley, you find locals that can task you with missions. These are optional, but you receive additional bonuses of experience and items (e.g. lockpick) from them. You unlock the achievement after you complete all eight missions (i.e. four in each of the locations mentioned above).

Golden Child

Description: In Score Attack mode, complete each level and score gold

How to obtain:

In the Score Attack mode, you need to reach a specific score for each grade - brown, silver and gold. Factors that govern this are time taken to complete the level, points obtained for killing enemies, how well you avoided taking damage and bonus received from the added cards. To score gold, you need to break some serious sweat - it is best to go there at the highest difficulty, which brings up the multiplier for killing streaks. Try to complete this level as quickly as possible, thanks to which you receive extra points (calculated at the bottom of the screen), kill enemies stealthily and in streaks, and collect glows that continue the streaks. Additionally, make things more difficult by adding cards that weaken Lara or strengthen opponents, which will boost your score towards the end of the challenge. It is a good idea to disable health regeneration here (which is unavailable anyway at the highest difficulty), or enable the option thanks to which you start the level with no ammo on you (your first stealth kill should enable you to obtain it). Completing all of the stages in this way is difficult and time-consuming, you need to be very precise, play at the highest difficulty and also weaken Lara and strengthen enemies as much as possible.

Iron Will

Description: Complete a level in Score Attack using 5 cards

How to obtain:

You unlock the achievement by playing any stage in Score Attack. Just remember to add five cards, regardless of their types and bonuses they provide. Completing a challenge tomb is the least time-consuming, especially that there is no preference for level that you should actually complete - what counts is that you complete a challenge using 5 cards.

Quite the Collector

Description: Collect 150 cards

How to obtain:

During the main storyline, and after you complete it, you will be receiving credits that you can spend on cards - you find them in the Store tab, in the game's main menu. In the store, you can buy cards that you can use to make things more interesting in the Adventure mode. Each deck costs a different amount of credits and, after you buy them, you receive different cards. Also, you can buy the cards for real-life money. For the purposes of this achievement, the easiest way to obtain cards is buying as many brown decks as possible - they are the cheapest, thanks to which you can buy quite a few of them, for the credits you have, and the achievement does not specify which cards these are supposed to be. If you are short of credits, you can obtain them in the Adventure mode, where you will be receiving credits upon completion of challenges and for the medals that you obtain. In combination with cards that you receive for completing the game, you will be able to obtain the required amount. Also, it is worth noting that using up a card does not affect the overall count.
