Default Possibility of getting each weapon.

I recently played this great game again and to give it more difficulty, I decided to play it using pistols as the only weapon.

By the way, out of curiosity, I decided not to pick up any weapons throughout the game to learn where each weapon would be.

This was my result, what do you think? Did you know these weapons locations? Is there a location you know of that is not on the list?

Greetings, in advance.

Pistols
Lara's Home
Jungle (Automatically Incorporated’s)
High Security Compound
Area 51 (Automatically Incorporated’s if the previous level is exceeded without them)

Shotgun
Jungle
Temple Ruins (twice)
River Ganges
Area 51 (twice)
Thames Wharf
Aldwych (twice)
Lud's Gate
Antarctica

Desert Eagle
High Security Compound
Temple of Puna
RX-Tech Mines
Lost City of Tinnos

Uzis
Nevada Desert
Aldwych (twice)*
Antarctica
All Hallows

Harpoon Gun
Coastal Village
Lud's Gate

MP5
Area 51
Crash Site (three times)*
Aldwych
Antarctica

Rocket Launcher
Madubu Gorge
Aldwych
Lud's Gate (twice)
Lost City of Tinnos

Grenade Launcher
Caves of Kaliya
High Security Compound
Area 51
Lost City of Tinnos

*Credits to Benny Klimp for the third location of MP5 and the second location of Uzis in Crash Site and Aldwych respectively, which I did not find.

Wow, I never realized how rare the harpoon gun was! Interesting list.

Welcome! Interesting list. I always wondered what happens if you don't pick up your Pistols in High Security Compound. I didn't realize you will simply start with them in Area 51. I didn't realize a lot of these weapons can be picked up in multiple levels. Especially the Shotgun since I almost always pick it up in Area 51.

The Harpoon Gun is the only weapon on that list you can't recover if you choose Nevada last.

Is it even possible to finish the level without picking them up? I remember some enemies dropping key items so you'd need weapons to get the required items.

As far as I recall, there aren't any underwater enemies anymore after this anyway.

Itís interesting to know this because Iíve wondered whether choosing Nevada last actually stops you from getting some weapons or whether itís just a nuisance.

They were specifically referring to the pistols. You still have the option of using the desert eagle.

Both glitched and glitchless speedruns skip the pistols pickup.

Yes, and the same happens in Atlantis or Diving Area in TR1 or TR2, if don't pick up pistols in Natla's Mines or Offshore Rig.

Thank you.
I follow this forum since years ago as guest, until I dared to register xD

Yes, and in Antartica don't exist harpoons (not even ammo).

I also wondered this, this among other curiosities, was what made me do the adventure without picking up any weapons.

I also did a run like that some years ago. I think the shotgun in Antarctica is the only weapon dropped by an enemy, I got a little surprised when it happened. You can find the uzis in two places in Aldwych and the MP5 in three places in Crash Site.

Interesting Thanks for sharing this information. I've had some knowledge about this as I was curious and checked in a walkthrough some time ago, but I haven't known that shotgun is so common and that All Hallows also has a weapon. I've also never completed TR3 without picking weapons But it would definitely be interesting to find the exact places where the weapons lie
