Tomb Raider Remastered Cheat Codes

How to unlock all guns, get unlimited ammo and med kids, skip levels, and explode Lara in Tomb Raider I-III Remastered.

The Tomb Raider I-III Remastered collection is a hit of pure nostalgia for the millennials among us, and if you're a long-time Lara Croft fan like me, you'll likely be delighted to know that the re-release retains the iconic cheats that we all remember from the '90s.

By having Lara perform a silly little dance you can skip levels, unlock unlimited ammo and med packs, and even bring her adventure to an abrupt conclusion by having her spontaneously explode in mid-air! (One thing you can't do, incidentally, is get her nude; that was always an urban legend.)

However, since for most of us it's probably been a good couple of decades at least since we actually entered these cheats, here's a quick refresher on how to input them, with step-by-step instructions on how to use all cheat codes in Tomb Raider Remastered collection.

Warning: Before you proceed, it's important to know that using a cheat will disable trophies/achievements for the current save file.

Tomb Raider Remastered cheats list

There are a few basic cheat codes you can use across the Tomb Raider Remastered collection, often in more than one of the games; although because these are technically three separate titles, the way you input them will vary depending on exactly which game you're playing:

What to do if the cheats aren't working

Here are a few tips to bear in mind if you're struggling to apply the desired cheat effects in Tomb Raider I-III Remastered (this advice applies to all three individual games):

  • You need to have your control scheme set to Tank Controls, not Modern Controls. This is because the Modern Controls scheme lacks the backwards step option that is used in all of these cheats.
  • When stepping forward/back, Lara needs to be walking, not running, so hold down the walk button during this phase of inputting the cheat.
  • When jumping forward/back, you need to press the jump button quickly followed by the direction you want to jump in, rather than pressing them simultaneously (that's just how tank controls are).
  • If you're on controller, bear in mind that it's typically easier to ensure Lara walks or jumps in the desired direction by using the D-Pad rather than the Left Stick.
  • The Max Health and Racetrack Key cheats for TR3 require you to be playing on a gamepad rather than mouse and keyboard.
