The Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft wiki last edited by Enai on 10/29/13 04:42PM View full history


Tomb Raider 3 tells the story of Lara trying to find four meteorite stones, all four of which are in very different parts of the world.


One new feature that was introduced in Tomb Raider 3 was having the choice of the order you wished to play some of the levels. After completing the first set of levels set in India, the player was given the choice of traveling to Nevada, the South Pacific, or London before taking on the games last set of levels in Antarctica.

It brought new weapons, vehicles and it also had new movements for Lara, such as the monkey bar swing, duck, and dash maneuvers. It also included some new graphical effects like blood visible in water when you got damaged, ripple effects in water caused by shell casings, and smoke emitting from fired guns. The new vehicles include snowmobiles and quad bikes. In Lara's mansion, there is an unlockable quad bike course.


  • Pistols
  • Shotgun
  • Desert Eagle
  • Uzis
  • MP5
  • Rocket Launcher
  • Grenade Launcher
  • Harpoon



The first levels set in India introduced new enemies like Snakes, Piranhas, and Monkeys, which would sometimes pick up items like health packs if they were left alone. These levels are very much in the style of the original Tomb Raider, while the rest of the game is urban.


Lara travels around the deserts of Nevada. She eventually ends up in Area 51, in which the game takes on a science-fiction tone where Lara battles Area 51 security guards and frees prisoners.

South Pacific Island

These levels were inhabited by dinosaurs continuing the theme from previous games, it had the return of Velocoraptors not seen since the original Tomb Raider.


Lara travels through the streets, rooftops and subways of London. These levels are very vertically oriented.
