We have brought you a Tomb Raider Multiplayer Guide. Now you can play with your friends easily. We have also included the system requirements.

Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix’s Eidos Montreal subsidiary recently gave us a sneak peek at the game’s multiplayer mode. It takes players back to the beginning of the series when Lara Croft is 20 years old and attempting to live. The single-player version of the game entices players with its stunning graphics and engaging storyline. Multiplayer, on the other hand, has remained a mystery. Of course, not everyone can join Lara Croft in online brawls.

The survivors of the Enduance crash face off against the Solarii, who have joined forces with the enigmatic Oni in Tomb Raider Multiplayer. As the Survivors, you can capture radio towers, collect medical supplies, or simply kill the Solarii. It’s all about preventing the Survivors from completing their mission as the Solarii.

Players can fight on the five standard maps: Beach, Chasm, Monastery, Shrine, and Underground, or on the DLC maps: Cliffs, Caves, Village, Shanty Town, Lost Fleet, Forest, Himko’s Cradle, and Dogfight. Each has its own set of areas and traps. Players will amass salvage and gain experience (XP). Salvage is used to upgrade weapons and buy new character skins. Leveling up through XP opens up new characters to buy and skills to learn.

Tomb Raider Multiplayer Guide: Ammo Boxes and Salvage Crates

Ammo for your weapons is stored in an ammo box. After you take a box, it instantly respawns. To get your ammo, simply walk over them. Be wary of false ammo boxes, as the Solarii have them. If you get too close to one of these boxes, you’ll be blown out of the sky. Your reticle becomes red when you aim at one of these boxes. To set it off early, shoot it.

The salvage boxes are identical to those in the main game. When you’re close to one, press X/Square to use your axe to crack it open. You’ll get at least 100 components, as well as perhaps an explosive device. On rare occasions, a heat sink adaptation can be found. It keeps the turret and minigun from getting too hot.

Tomb Raider Multiplayer Guide: Loot bag and Weapons

A loot bag is left behind after a player dies. Run to the sack and pick it up to salvage what you can. The competition bow and minigun, both strong super-weapons, can be located in secret areas across the map. It becomes your fourth weapon once you pick it up; select it by pressing down on the D-Pad. When you die, the weapon is dropped and can be picked up by any player.

The minigun is a high-capacity machine gun. It, like the turret, can overheat, although a Heat Sink can be found in a salvage crate. You can only receive 500 rounds for the gun, and you can’t get any more. If a used minigun is picked up by another player, it is reset to 500 rounds.

The competitive bow is a contemporary bow that is extremely precise and strong. It has the ability to kill with a single shot. You start with ten arrows and picking up an ammunition box restores that number to ten. You can go around as long as you like with the bow pulled. These weapons can spawn in three different places, but only one can be seen on the map at a time.

Tomb Raider Multiplayer Guide: Turrets, Ziplines, and Snare Trap

A turret is available for usage on the Beach and Underground. You can utilize it if you press the action button. It will start to overheat within a couple of seconds. In order to avoid overheating, look for the Heat Sink Adaptation in a salvage crate.

The maps are littered with zip wires. When your character is within reach of a line, the Jump icon will display over his head. By hitting the B/Circle button, you can fall off a zip line. Move your character up a line with the Analog Stick. It takes far longer for your character to ascend up a zip line than it does to descend. Hold the X/Square button-down as a Solarii to use the rope ascender to fast climb the line.

A snare trap can be made out of a loop of rope on the ground. The rope grabs an enemy’s foot and hangs them upside down if they walk through it. The entrapped victim possesses a revolver with which to protect themselves, but the situation is reversed. The snare is your team’s trap if it has a blue noose. It’s the adversaries if the noose is red. If you find yourself in a trap, fire the rope to free yourself. By going up to them and pressing X/Square or just firing the rope, you can rescue them.

Tomb Raider Multiplayer Guide: Level up

You acquire XP by killing other players or seizing radio transmitters. XP allows you to level up your character and unlock new skins, weapons, and talents. You have the option of staying at rank 60 or prestige to the following rank after reaching rank 60. You will see an emblem around your level when you select prestige, which signifies how many times you have prestige. By completing this task a certain number of times, you can determine your rank.

When you use prestige, you revert to level one and lose all of your skills and weapons. Only the characters you’ve unlocked and the amount of money you’ve saved remain. Press Y/Triangle on the loadouts screen to prestige.

Here are a few extra tips for you

  • Team Deathmatch is the most widely played mode if you’re having problems joining matches.
  • Use the Frag Grenade often as the Survivors to gain quick kills.
  • Characters wearing darker-colored attire, such as Steph and Pilot, are simpler to identify and shoot.
  • Always have the Magnum Pistol on hand as the Solarii; it’s fast, accurate, and has a lot of stopping power.
  • Before you approach them, detonate the explosive barrels scattered across the battlefield; an adversary may use them against you!
  • To become a more difficult target to strike, jump and roll frequently.
  • Place fake ammo boxes and land mines in high-traffic locations.
  • Snare traps should always be set to slow down the other squad.
