Dust off your gear, sharpen your wits, and prepare to step into Lara Croft’s adventurous shoes once again as we accompany Lara on her original globe-trotting expeditions.

The Tomb Raider series is full of secrets, traps, tricks, and collectibles. One of our favorites is finding Lara’s secret treasure room in Tomb Raider II. We’ve compiled a few tips and tricks below to aid in your adventures:

Tomb Raider I

In Level 3: Lost Valley, your objectives contain five secrets hidden on temple rooftops or inside secret waterfalls. A hidden shotgun will be key to taking out the dinosaurs you’ll encounter throughout this zone. Once obtained, collect the three gears needed to open the entrance to the Tomb of Qualopec. 

Tomb Raider II

Throughout the game, there are various secret pickups hidden in different levels. You need to collect all of them. Secrets are typically hidden in hard-to-reach places or behind breakable walls. Use your keen observation skills to find them. You can access the inventory menu to check your progress in collecting secrets. 

Continue playing through the game until you reach the final level called Home Sweet Home. Make sure you have collected all secrets in all levels up to this point. In this level, you’ll eventually come across Lara’s Mansion. This level is unique because it serves as a hub world. You’ll find a room called the Trophy Room inside Lara’s Mansion. In this room, you can display the artifacts and treasures you’ve collected throughout the game. To access Lara’s secret treasure room, you’ll have to find the switch in the garden maze that opens the treasure room under the stairs.

Tomb Raider III

Continue playing through the game until you reach the final level called Meteorite Cavern. Make sure you have collected all secrets in all levels up to this point. If all secrets have been picked up throughout the levels by the time you get here, a new level called All Hallows will become available.
