Check Your Map For Animal Spawn Points

Opening your map and checking the legend's icons will help show you where to go when hunting for a specific animal.

Deciphering and following Monolith clues can also lead to a cache of resources, some of them rare. Unlock monoliths in-game to gather more rare materials for crafting.

What Are Monoliths?

Monoliths are stone monuments scattered across the in-game map. Lara needs to learn dialects & decipher them to grab a clue & activate the search for Monolith riches.

Check Map To Search For Monolith Riches

Once deciphered and given a clue, a white circle where the riches can be dug out from will activate in your map. Use the circle to locate & earn your reward!
