There are different types of traps in the Tomb Raider series. Many traps include spikes, glass shards, toxic waste, metal doors, lava, and many more.
Tomb Raider: Legend Edit
Hidden Floor Spikes Edit
It's first encountered in Bolivia - Tiwanaku at the entrance to an ancient temple, which took the lives of two careless mercenaries. At first, the floor above the trap is not moving at all and "acts" like a normal one. However, when Lara gets closer, the floor retracts, revealing the deadly spikes below. The trap can be easily avoided by swinging across it.
