Storage Packs are used by Lara Croft to carry cumbersome and bulky items, such as keys, weapons and ammunition,.
Original Timeline Edit
Tomb Raider-Tomb Raider Chronicles Edit
In all games, Lara carries her trademark leather Back Pack, which acts as the inventory system for the game. The Backpack is made of sturdy Leather. Lara acquired it in Angor Wat, Cambodia, where she took it from a skeleton.
It functions as a "Magic Satchel" which is a common concept within early gaming and is still prevalent in the Action RPG genre. It is quite small, though for the purposes of gameplay, it has a limitless storage capacity and doesn't weigh Lara down.
Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness Edit
In Angel of Darkness Lara has a new backpack. It functions the same as the old one, however it has a limited carry capacity for ammunition.
Legend Timeline Edit
Tomb Raider: Legend Edit
Lara once again carries her backpack, however it has a much more realistic carry limit (With the exception of Pistol Ammo.) And can only have one long gun, strapped to the outside of it, with a maximum ammo capacity for each weapon.
Ammo Limits Edit
- MG415 SMG: 120
- RC650 Assault Rifle: 150
- Shotgun: 25
- Grenade Launcher: 15
Tomb Raider: Anniversary Edit
Lara's backpack functions much more like her original Backpack, although it once again has a carry limit on how much ammunition it can stock for all weapons except for her pistols.
Ammo Limits Edit
- Shotgun: 40 Shell
- .50 Caliber Pistol: 150 Rounds
- Micro Uzi: 250 Rounds
Tomb Raider: Underworld EditLara's Backpack is more akin to it's classic, being able to carry all of Lara's weapons at once, and a large amount of ammunition for each of them. However Underworld doesn't have any ammo pickups available, so whatever ammunition is available for each weapon, is all that can be used, and will not be replenished to until the next level. The Ammo Limits are affected by the difficulty setting.
Ammo Limits: Edit
- Submachine Guns: 400/240/160
- Shotgun: 90/72/42
- Assault Rifle: 300/210/120
- Tranquilizer 25/15/10
- Spear Guns: 40/25/15
Survivor Timeline Edit
Tomb Raider Edit
Lara carries most of her ammunition in her pockets, early in the game, with the exception of her arrows which she keeps in her quiver.
With the correct skills purchased, Lara will be able to carry more ammo, by making better use of the space in her pockets, and will also add two storage pouches to the back of her belt, and allow her to increase the number of arrows she can hold in her quiver.
Rise of the Tomb Raider Edit
There is a much more complex carry capacity system, as certain packs will only carry certain items, with larger versions that can carry a larger amount able to be crafted at base camps.
