An “8th” tomb, available as DLC and included in the Definitive Edition (Tomb of the Lost Adventurer), does not count towards the achievement condition.

Yamatai isn’t an ideal vacation spot. With constant buffering storms, aggressive wildlife and an indigenous population of lunatics, this is one island you probably shouldn’t visit anytime soon.

Unfortunately for Miss Lara Croft, she doesn’t have that luxury. She’ll have to content with the following enemy types on her adventure:

Archer: Archers are enemies who fire arrows from bows. They can be human or Oni, but they behave the same.

They’ll use cover routinely to try and avoid Lara’s attacks, and are also known to attack with melee weapons should you get too close.

Several Archers later in the game also have armour, meaning they can’t be killed as easily as previous enemies in the game.

Fire Bomber: This enemy spends most of his time behind cover, so he can be quite tricky to kill unless he comes out of cover. The enemy is clad in what appears to be a white hood. The fire bomber will throw molotov cocktails at you, and the flames do spread in a small radius, so it’s best to head somewhere else for cover.

In order to kill the fire bomber, you can be patient and wait for his head to pop out of cover and take a shot. However, another creative way is to wait for the fire bomber to come out of cover completely (right before he’s about to throw an explosive) and take your shots then. This will cause the fire bomber to drop the explosive next to him, setting him and other enemies nearby on fire. This is especially useful when next to an explosive barrel.

You can also use the rope arrow to pull the cover down in front of this enemy, giving you a clear shot before he finds more cover.

Grenadier: Grenadiers behave like Fire Bombers, but throw explosives instead.

These guys tend to show up more towards the end of the game, and generally replace Fire Bombers as the projectile-based enemy of choice.

If they’ve thrown an explosive at you – MOVE! Staying still will get you blown to bits or thrown away for heavy damage.

Remember you can use Lara’s Scrabble move to quickly get out of a tight spot.

Melee Specialist: This enemy has a machete (or a sword) and is wearing a different uniform from a standard archer or rifleman.

The enemy will not wait behind cover unless he is being shot at. If he has an opportunity, he will run towards you and attack you with his weapon. Take special caution with this enemy, because this enemy could easily cause you to die if he gets too close. However, fire a shot in his direction (even if you miss), and the enemy will quickly find cover and stay for a few seconds until it is safe.

If he does get too close, don’t fret, because you can shove him off and dispose of him quickly. An indicated button will appear for a short moment, and is the same button as the “Kick” command. This will cause the enemy to stagger, giving you precious seconds to get a headshot.

You can also invest in skills later in the game that allow you to dodge and counter attacks – highly handy for battling these guys.

Some melee specialists also have armor.

Oni: Oni are bigger, fatter, tougher versions of the cultists Lara encounters on the island. Apart from their increased toughness, the same firearms, dodging, and Dodge Kill abilities will work against them.

Rifleman (Gunner): Shield Soldier: Rifleman (Gunner)s are simply enemies armed with modern firearms. Unlike archers, they have a faster rate of weaponsfire.

Wolves: Large, black wolves that appear outdoors, especially at night. They tend to come out of bushes at quite a bit of distance away from Lara. One shot to head will quickly dispose of the wolves, and with a good distance between Lara and the wolves, it isn’t that hard. If the wolves get close to Lara, a QTE event may occur, where Lara wrestles a wolf off.
