There are no Ancient Mechanisms like the ones you found in Assassin’s Creed Origins, but just because there isn’t a larger end game behind these tombs doesn’t mean they’re not worth completing. Other than levelling up your Hero to Level 50, tombs offer the only viable alternative to farming Ability Points for the Hunter, Warrior and Assassin skill paths.

Always have a torch ready before you go into a tomb. Even if it’s day outside, every tomb will be a pit of darkness when you enter. Simply hold ‘Right’ on the D-Pad to equip it. There are also black braziers scattered throughout each tomb – you can light these by simply standing close to them, and they’ll help you a) light the way and b) show where you’ve explored already.

Most tombs are relatively linear, but some have multiple points of entry and maze-like layouts. So be sure to use this braziers to keep you on track. We’ve also listed the right directions to take for each one, so you should be fine as long as you follow our walkthrough for each one. Some tombs may have the occasional soldier outside, but the only danger you’ll encounter inside are spike pads and snakes.

These reptiles are designed to look like coils of rope, so be sure to dodge back and away if one coils in attack. Spike pads are pressure sensitive, but you’ll have a few seconds to dodge away before they shoot upwards and damage your health.

Each tomb also has lots of chests to loot (which are randomised with weapons/gear relative to the enemies that populate the region you’re currently in – so there’s no scaling whatsoever), as well as corpses, bags and pots to loot for drachmae and crafting/sellable items.

There are no real puzzles to solve in these tombs, bar hidden gaps in the wall (usually blocked by smashable pots), breakable walls (depicted with lots of cracks/wooden planks) and wooden shelves that can be moved to reveal gaps or mantled to reach higher platforms.
