Tomb Raider Documents Locations

Tomb Raider 2013 Video Game Details

Genre: Action-Adventure

Developed by: Crystal Dynamics

Published by: Square Enix

Platforms: PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

Release date: March 5, 2013

Tomb Raider Documents can be found in almost all regions of the video game, and they are available early in the story, when Lara explores the forest.

The Documents take the shape of books, and they can be used to uncover many of the island’s secrets, or even diaries belonging to the Endurance’s crew members, or Lara’s journals.

The Tomb Raider Documents are hidden in various places around the island, just like the Relics and the GPS Caches (and other Tomb Raider collectables). However, Lara’s Journals are automatically added to the collection, so players don’t have to worry about them during the gameplay, as long as they visit all camps. Another aspect regarding the Documents is that they award players with experience points, which is mandatory for those who want to build Lara’s skill tree faster.

Not all Tomb Raider Documents are easy to collect, for the fact that some of them are hidden in areas that are locked for players, unless they obtain the proper equipment. Later in the story, players can acquire new gear. When that happens, it is recommended to use the Fast Travel system available at most Base Camps to return to previous areas, because there may also be some Relics or GPS Caches left around.

There are 54 Tomb Raider Documents divided in eight categories, and those who can get at least 75% of them will unlock two achievements, Bookworm and Historian. There’s also a third achievement for all Documents, which also counts the Relics and the GPS Caches. 1

An important fact that must be mentioned is that players won’t be able to find all Tomb Raider documents unless they complete the game, because the last document is in fact Lara’s final diary entry, which is added to her collection during the final cutscene of the video game.
