Tomb Raider Reloaded Beginners Guide and Tips

Head on for new adventures with Lara Croft!

Tomb Raider Reloaded is the mobile adaption of the famous Tomb Raider series. The new adventure title is being developed by Emerald City Games and will be released for global audiences on February 14, 2023. The game offers level-based gameplay, where players are tasked with progressing to further stages by clearing each level. There are uniquely developed monsters in the game for players to test their might against. As you progress through each level, you’ll be able to stack abilities and perks such as piercing shots, experience boosts, and much more. In this Tomb Raider Reloaded Beginners Guide we will try to break these concepts down and make everything easier for beginners.

Gameplay Overview

The game, Tomb Raider Reloaded offers gameplay very similar to Archero, where players only take control of the joystick in the game and the character shoots the weapon continuously depending on where the enemy is. Frankly speaking, it is a very different experience that the game offers considering how the console versions of the games are.

The game is all about dodging and attacking the enemies at the same time, not much can be said of the combat system because there is none. After every level, you clear you get an option to choose the power-up which gives you some temporary boost-ups. There are different enemies in the game each of which has different patterns of attacking, this adds unpredictability to the game, but still feels a bit repetitive at times.

Grind through the different sets of stages in the game

The game, Tomb Raider reloaded is based on a level-clearing basis, where players are tasked with clearing several rounds of a stage each offering unique challenges and enemies to tackle and navigate. The game tries to take inspiration and influence from the classic Tomb Raider titles by offering a mix of adventure and action, with players wielding Lara’s iconic twin pistols and diving deep into ancient locations for a globetrotting adventure.

As of now, there are around 9 stages in the game for players to clear and earn in-game rewards. There are around 15-20 levels in each stage with each of them having different locations and setups. Be sure to select the best powerups available after each level. Our advice will be to focus more on powerups which offer direct improvisation on the defense and offense of Lara’s overall stats. There are certain powerups like bullet ricochets and improvised fire rates which are not worth the points and should be avoided.

On your quest, you’ll avoid hidden traps, discover ancient relics, solve a wide variety of puzzles, and face off against different enemies and bosses. Be sure to keep an eye out for allies in between the levels as well, they offer either health or better equipment and can help you restock for further stages.

One thing which is good about the game is the fact that it has a good amount of monsters with varying variety in the game, making the game unique as you progress further and does not make it repetitive which is the major drawback for some games of similar genres.

Tomb Raider Reloaded Beginners Guide: Tips and Tricks

After investing a lot of time and analyzing the game to the core, we have come up with the following tips and tricks for new players heading out to play the game.

1. Watch ads to revive Lara once defeated

The game offers the players a chance to revive Lara once every run in the stages. These revive can be received after watching an advertisement by clicking the revive option present in the game. Be sure to use the revives wisely because they are only available once and if you die mid-stage, for instance, if there are 20 levels in a stage and you die on level 19 out of 20, you will have to restart from the very beginning, making it really time-consuming and exhausting process.

The advertisements offer a great opportunity for players to pick up where they left off and grind further in the stage if killed in between a level.

2. You can have a free exploration Crate every day

Exploration crates are a huge help from the side of the developers, they offer new equipment and gears for the character and which can be leveled up and crafted further for improved stats improving the survival statistics of Lara in the game. There are 4 rarity types: Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Epic. You level them up by spending coins and manuals. The number of coins and manuals it takes to level up a gear item increases as it levels.

Common pieces of Gear can be found very easily by just completing daily quests in the game, however, for anything above common you will have to grind in the game, there are exploration rewards achieved after clearing the whole stage and then there are epic crates which can be purchased when enough in-game resources are there with the players. Exploration crates drop equipment on a random basis hence players can get objects of any tier, they are available for free every day and can be purchased too.

3. Strategise your movements by Dodging enemy attacks

The game only lets the players control the basic movement controls of Lara, the character shoots herself whenever an enemy is in sight. This gives the game a more strategic outlook too, where players have to dodge the enemies and also evade them by shooting before they attack. Gameplay features roguelike and procedurally generated stages for a new and varied experience with every run.

The game has uniquely developed monsters like bloodthirsty wolves, poisonous snakes, fearsome golems, and magical elemental creatures all gunning for you. Each of these enemies has an attacking pattern in the game, which you will have to study and counterattack based on your movement in the game.

4. Collect rare equipment and craft them for better survival stats

Crafting can help you immensely in the game, there are blueprints for different guns, bullets, and backpacks in the game scattered all across the levels. When you find these blueprints you can actually use them to craft better equipment out of them and make your chances of succeeding in the game even greater. You can craft to increase the rarity of your gear as well, for example, if you have 3 common pistol blueprints you can combine and craft them together to have uncommon gear.

Be sure to keep on upgrading the equipment as well to make sure you stand a better chance against the various challenges the game has to offer. Common items max out at level 20, Uncommon at level 30, Rare at level 40, and Epic at level 50.

5. Complete the stages for Exploration rewards

Exploration rewards are there to be collected after every stage of the game. Once the players have completed the stage in the game, they can have their claim over the rewards. These exploration rewards contain better in-game resources and have specifically better equipment and pieces of gear. It is very easy to miss out on these rewards because they are self-claimable and have to be redeemed from the in-game main menu.

The game makes the players push to their limits with the difficulty levels, hence it is advisable to claim the rewards as soon as possible in the game, for better gear and gun blueprints. Thus making the further levels a bit easier to play.

Final Thoughts

The game, Tomb Raider reloaded doesn’t offer much in terms of game modes, there is just a linear game formula where players have to take on enemies which are quite diverse in nature while clearing the levels of different stages. The game does have a crafting system along with some in-game events which are held by developers. The game is pretty basic with not many complex offerings, still, we hope that with this Tomb Raider Reloaded Beginners Guide, we were able to help out the interested players.
