Players control Lara Croft through various environments, battling enemies, and completing puzzle platforming sections, while using improvised weapons and gadgets in order to progress through the story. The game features a crafting system, allowing players to create items like different arrow types (poison, climbable, fire, grenade, rope) by scavenging materials from plants and animals in the game's harsh environment. The environment includes a day-night cycle and aweather system that both human and animal characters can react to. For example, to create a hardier winter coat Lara must hunt a wolf which only comes out during a specific time of day and specific weather condition. Lara can swim, which adds to her mobility and combat tactics. Combat has been redesigned with more options for stealth and sneak attacks. Lara can use the environment to her advantage; hiding in bushes or trees, by climbing trees and traversing rooftops or shooting arrows at objects to distract enemies, crafting Molotov cocktails and makeshift grenades. The bow and arrow return from Tomb Raider. Different types of bows can be fashioned from specific animals and materials that Lara can hunt and salvage. Lara's pistol, shotgun, assault rifle and climbing axe all return from Tomb Raider, each with their own variants. New items introduced include a hunting knife for melee or sneak attacks, a re-breather for underwater exploration, and a lock pick to open locked crates and doors.
