How to Fast Travel in Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Shadow of the Tomb Raider marks the third installation in the new rebooted series, and it sees Lara Croft return to the more exotic jungle environment we saw in the first 2013 game. That’s likely to cheer up those who felt that Rise of the Tomb Raider’s barren snow-covered Soviet mountain setting was a little bland. What has remained consistent throughout the entire trilogy so far, though, is the semi-open world design, which sees Lara navigate large hub areas that branch off into segmented areas to explore. And fast travel is an awesome way to do it.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is packed with Crypts, Tombs, side quests, and secret areas off the beaten path, and several of those areas you’ll find inaccessible upon first discovery, forcing you to return when you’ve got the right equipment to unlock them. So it’s all very Metroidvania, which means backtracking. But can you fast travel to avoid that, and if so, how does it work?
The simple answer is yes, there is fast travel available in the game. However, you won’t have access to it until a few hours into the game, once you’re well into the Peruvian jungle. Fast travel is accessed via the base camp menu.
It’s one of the three options when you first interact with base camp, alongside Inventory and Skills. It’s the last of those to unlock. Once you have access to it, simply select Fast Travel and then choose a base camp to fast travel to. It’s a handy feature when you’re wanting to return to areas to tick off objectives that weren’t previously available.
