In combat, always remember these two key elements:
■ KEEP MOVING – Keeping Lara moving is the most important factor in combat; her continually changing position slows the enemy’s advance. A moving target is much harder to hit than a static one.
■ MANIPULATE THE ENVIRONMENT – Constantly check for objects in the environment that Lara can manipulate to her advantage. For example, she can thwart enemies by blocking paths, collapsing structures, detonating nearby explosives and releasing obstacles.


G key – Lock-on target.
Left mouse button – Fire weapon.

■ SLIDE ATTACK – Target enemies while running toward them, then press the F key to slide. Lara slides into enemies, knocking them off balance and setting them up for her guns.
■ AERIAL ATTACK – Press spacebar twice when close to the enemy. With the first press, Lara jumps at an enemy. As she lands on the enemy, press spacebar again to activate slow time, then immediately press the left mouse button to fire, shooting the target.
■ POWER KICK – Press the G key and then press the E key to kick the target enemy away with Lara’s boot.
■ GRAPPLE – Hold the G key and press the Q key to use Lara’s grapple to pull enemies toward her and inflict some damage.

NOTE: Melee attacks are ineffective against animal enemies.


While Lara is locked-on to a target, she can perform various maneuvers to avoid enemy attacks.
■ ROLL-  Press the G key, press any cursor key and then press the F key.
■ FLIP – Press the G key, press any cursor key and then press spacebar.


The targeting reticle will appear when a target is within sight. The color of the reticle changes to indicate the target status:
■ GRAY RETICLE Target is out of range.
■ RED RETICLE Target is within rage at the current distance.
■ BLUE RETICLE Target can be grappled.

TIP: If the target is within distance but off-screen, an arrow appears showing the direction
of the target’s location.

The PDA is Lara’s automatic data capture and wireless communication device. It holds all of her mission data and real time objective and equipment information. Press the TAB key to access Lara’s PDA, which displays the following data:
■ OBJECTIVES Provides Lara with information on her current objectives and overall mission objectives.
■ DATA Provides information for completed missions, and allows you to keep a tally of rewards collected while playing the missions.

COMPLETION TIME – Records your fastest time for the Mission.
GOLD REWARDS – Shows number collected and total rewards available (of each type) in the Mission.
SILVER REWARDS – Shows number collected and total rewards available (of each type) in the Mission.
BRONZE REWARDS – Shows number collected and total rewards available (of each type) in the Mission.
■ GEAR Provides Lara with information on all her inventory. Here you can view stats and descriptions of each weapon and item Lara has.



A staple of the rough-and-rugged adventurer, health packs allow Lara to treat her injuries in the field.

NOTE: Lara can carry a maximum of three health packs.

PERSONAL LIGHT SOURCE (PLS) – Ultra-bright LED portable light source. Kinetically charged, the PLS shines for a limited time before shutting off to recharge.


Using her grapple, Lara can manipulate objects from a distance, climb or drop to different heights, and swing across large gaps. The grapple consists of a magnetic grapple head that can latch onto discrete, visually distinct surfaces, plus a lengthy wire and an automatic recoiler.

NOTE: The grapple can only be used on specific shiny metallic surfaces.


The RAD, a pair of high-tech lenses in Lara’s inventory, perform the following functions:
■ BINOCULARS Magnify the image in the field of view.
■ RAD MODE Analyze and provide a readout for objects in view that have significant archeological or technological interest. Data collected include:


■ Press the PAGE DOWN key to activate the binoculars. (Press again to deactivate.) Press and hold the H key/G key to zoom in/out.
■ Press the E key to activate RAD mode. (Press again to deactivate.)


Throughout Lara’s archeological adventure, various artifacts and relics become available for discovery and collection. Collecting rewards opens up bonus content and extra features such as outfits (which you can view in Croft Manor), pistol upgrades, concept art and much more. Make sure Lara scours the environment thoroughly. Each mission has a number of different types of collectables:

■ BRONZE REWARDS Informational content.
■ SILVER REWARDS Game content.
■ GOLD REWARDS Special game rewards.

NOTE: The most valuable unlockables are only obtained by collecting a combination of all three reward types. When each level is complete, you will be notified about which type of reward(s) you have managed to unlock. Select EXTRAS from the Main Menu to view and select your rewards.

TIP: Select REPLAY LEVEL from the Main Menu to replay completed missions and pick up missed rewards.
