Compass Navigation Aid The Compass is useful for finding your way around the maze-like tombs.
Binoculars Use to see into the distance The compass is required for the solving of some puzzles so don't forget it's there!
Crowbar Many uses The crowbar is one of the most useful items in the inventory, it can be used to open doors, pull levers and get items out of holes in walls.
Laser SIght Combine with weapon for sniping The laser sight can be combined with the Revolver or Crossbow so that it can be used like a sniper's sight. Controls are the same as those of binoculars but the action button will fire a shot



Weapon Fire rate (out of 5) Comment
Pistols 3 Pistols are Lara's standard weapons. They have unlimited ammo, but don't do much damage. They are very versatile, and work best on weak enemies.
Shotgun 1 A powerful weapon but is best used on strong, slow moving enemies. Ammo is very limited so don't waste.
Revolver 3 The Desert Eagle from TR3 has been replaced by a revolver, which is extremely powerful and can be combined with the laser sight.
Uzis 5 The uzis have an excellent firing rate, although they are not very powerful. They are best used on fast moving enemies.
Grenade gun 1 The grenade gun is the slowest weapon available but is very powerful. You can often kill an enemy with just 1 shot.
Crossbow 3 The crossbow has many uses but is a bit hard to use effectively. It can also be combined with the laser sight.
