Rise Of The Tomb Raider Cheats & Cheat Codes for All Platforms

Rise Of The Tomb Raider Cheats & Cheat Codes for All Platforms

Tomb Raider as a series is a landmark in gaming. Its main protagonist Lara Croft was one of gaming’s first serious female leads who wasn’t just a damsel in distress. Instead, Lara Croft was a serious treasure hunter and fighter. Unfortunately, the series lost a lot of steam around 2008 with the Underworld: Series. This set of games is most likely forgotten by the vast majority of players and the series was considered dead to most.

That was until 2013 when Square Enix decided to breathe new life into the series with a serious reboot. Instead of having Lara be this military badass that treasure hunts on the side, she is a survivalist and actual archeologist who has to learn how to fight, evade, and survive. The Rise of the Tomb Raider (2015) comes to the world as the second installment in the series. This game is as crushing as it is beautiful.

Rise of the Tomb Raider Premise

As a direct sequel to the first, Rise of the Tomb Raider is set a year after unexplained supernatural events and PTSD are troubling Lara Croft. To try and quiet her mind Lara sets off to find the mythic city of Kitezh following the work and trail of her late father. Set deep in the Siberian wilderness Lara will have to fight off the wilds, cold and snow, and Russian mercenaries to follow in her father’s footsteps. As Lara learns more about what her father was looking for in the city the more danger she is thrust into.

Rise of the Tomb Raider Main Characters

Lara Croft – The Main Character with a “sick with it” and “I’m not dying here” attitude. She is dressed in winter gear with a high ponytail, ice axes, and a crudely crafted bow as one of her main weapons.

Jonah Maiava – Jonah is a classic support character for the game. He is one of Lara’s friends and serves as a guide for Lara during the first massive snowstorm/set piece of the game. He is of Kiwi (New Zealander) descent and is dressed in winter and mountain survival gear.

Ana – Ana comes to the game as a slight surprise as she is a senior agent of Trinity, a mythic organization trying to find immortality for world domination. She is blonde, English, and is always dressed as she is ready for an impromptu TED talk at any moment.

Jacob – Jacob is the true prophet of the city of Kitezh and is considered Deathless. He is still human but save the human end to use his own words. Jacob looks like if the Roman depiction of Jesus spent a bit of time as a WWII fighter pilot.

Rise of the Tomb Raider Cheat Codes

Much like every other modern game, Rise of the Tomb Raider does have cheat codes directly. There is no special screen where players can just type in a random code and get insane power-ups. Instead, there are ways to exploit existing structures and systems in the game to level up way faster.

Infinite XP

Simply fast travel back and forth between the two Flooded Archives camps to get 500 XP every time. Note: This glitch worked on an unpatched version of the game. The patch is coming soon. To avoid not being able to use this exploit, either do not install new patches before using this exploit or delete the patches. Easily avoid the patch from installing. Just disconnect from the internet until they are ready for the game to install new patches.

Other than that glitch which is most likely patched at the time of writing there aren’t really many cheats to be had. However, there are several achievements players can get that take a bit of skill to unlock. Here is a quick list.
