Rise of the Tomb Raider - Soviet Installation Relics

Updated: 4/24/16()

This guide, along with the annotated level maps linked below, should help find any relics you missed. If you are playing this level for the first time, you may want to follow the main walkthrough instead.

Weapons, Equipment, and Outfits are covered elsewhere. Other collectibles are detailed on separate pages:

Documents · Murals · Coin Caches · Survival Caches · Strongboxes · Archivist Maps · Explorer Satchels · Codices · Crypt Treasures · Challenges · Missions

RELIC 1

The first relic is just beyond the Train Yard Base Camp. Head north to the open area with the guard tower and the gate with the star. Then go through the break in the chain link fence on the right. You'll find the relic inside the old train car. Check the walkthrough and map for details. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 2

This relic is located on the upper level, northwest side, of the abandoned sawmill building near the Logging Camp Base Camp. It is sitting inside an otherwise empty jail cell. Refer to the walkthrough and level map if you need more help locating it. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 3

The next relic is in the tunnel leading to the Ancient Cistern Challenge Tomb. As you follow the tunnel from the entrance shaft into the tomb proper, you'll drop down twice. After this look for an alcove on the left containing the relic. Check the walkthrough and map if necessary. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 4

This relic is also on the way to the Ancient Cistern Challenge Tomb. It's on the left just before the room with the 2 large gear shafts. If you've already been in this tomb, you can fast travel to the Cistern Cavern Base Camp. Then swim along the tunnel to the northeast and climb the handholds on the wall to reach the relic. Check the walkthrough and map if necessary. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 5

This relic is in the wooden guard tower beyond the frozen stream that runs along the north side of the main area. There's a rusty, cylindrical water tank and a shack containing a strongbox nearby, all surrounded by a chain link fence. The Sheltered Ridge Base Camp is just to the east. See the walkthrough and map for details. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 6

This relic is in the cell block area of the Gulag where Lara and Jacob are held prisoner. If you missed it, fast travel to the Gulag Base Camp. Then follow the instructions in the walkthrough for revisiting the JAIL CELLS. When you enter the building in the eastern corner of the prison yard, continue straight ahead until a closed cell door blocks your way. Look to the right to spot the box with the relic. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 7

This relic is also in the Gulag, in the room with the shallow pool and huge electrical socket. If you miss it the first time, fast travel to the Gulag Base Camp. Then follow the instructions in the walkthrough for revisiting the JAIL CELLS, but instead of going all the way through, when you come to the room with the pool and socket, look for the relic behind the winch.

RELIC 8

This is in the northwestern part of the Gulag in the building just before the train tracks. To return later, fast travel to the Gulag Base Camp. Then follow the instructions in the walkthrough for revisiting the TRAIN TRACKS. Before you reach the tracks, you'll pass through a building with several dead Trinity soldiers. Go down the stairs and turn around to spot the relic. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 9

This relic is in the Train Yard, but you can't reach it until you get the LOCKPICK. It is covered in the walkthrough for the Unlucky Ones Mission. If you missed it, fast travel to the Train Yard Base Camp, climb through the opening in the wall to the southeast, enter the building ahead, and scramble through the raised opening on the far left. Go through to the next room and use the lockpick to open the door ahead. The relic is inside. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 10

This relic is just outside the Voice of God Challenge Tomb. If Lara's back is toward the tomb entrance, the box with the relic is down the hill on the left, at the start of the broken wooden walkway. If you missed it the first time, fast travel to the Frozen Gorge Base Camp and then retrace the original route to the tomb. See the walkthrough and map if necessary. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 11

This relic is on the way back from the Voice of God Challenge Tomb. It's on the ledge just below the end of the second rope line. If you missed it the first time, return to the Frozen Gorge Base Camp and follow the original route through the canyon, but when you come to the rope line leading to the tomb entrance, don't slide down. Instead climb onto the ledge on the left. Then slide down the next rope line to the relic. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 12

Head through the gate southeast of the Copper Mill Yard Base Camp. Then make a U-turn to the left. This relic is inside the shack next to the train car with the yellow ladder on it. See the walkthrough and map for details. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 13

This relic is in the part of the Copper Mill where you first learn to make molotov cocktails. It's behind a flammable barrier on the northeast side of the open area. If you missed it the first time, fast travel to the Copper Mill Yard Base Camp and climb up through the buildings like you did before. Check the map and walkthrough if necessary.

RELIC 14

This relic is in the Red Mine Challenge Tomb. If you have not completed the tomb yet, you can follow the walkthrough. If you missed the relic the first time, fast travel to the Excavation Shaft Base Camp. Head up the slope and follow the tunnel around to the northeast. Jump across the gap, then jump through the falling water to get back to the room with the relic. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 15

This relic is also in the Red Mine Challenge Tomb. From the Excavation Shaft Base Camp, jump across the pit to the northwest, go up the stairs, and then turn around to spot the relic sitting on a crate. Again, the map and walkthrough can help if you get disoriented. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 16

This relic is in the Copper Mill, in the building northwest of the one where you first learn to craft molotov cocktails. After completing the level, return to the Copper Mill Yard Base Camp and climb up following the route in the walkthrough. The relic is in the fenced-in room in the northwest corner. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 17

This relic is fairly well hidden. From the Copper Mill Yard Base Camp climb up through the buildings to the room with the mural and relic #16. Pull down the rope-wrapped barrier, slide down the chute, and jump onto the ledge in the room below. Climb onto the ledge above the strongbox and then use a rope arrow to reach the room with the relic. See the walkthrough and map for details. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)

RELIC 18

This relic is in the big building on the northeast side of the Copper Mill. Unless you've unlocked fire arrows, you'll need to carry a bottle up from below to destroy the flammable barrier so you can get into this side area. The relic is sitting on a table next to one of the posters for the Difference of Opinion Challenge. Check the walkthrough and map for details. (Click screenshot to enlarge.)
