Tomb Raider: Chronicles is the fifth entry in the Tomb Raider series. Despite Lara apparently being killed at the end of The Last Revelation (even though she shows up alive in the next game), this game focuses on various other adventures she was in.



Browning Hi-Power

The last in the series to feature the Browning Hi-Power pistols as Lara's main weapons, replaced by the Heckler & Koch USP Match in future titles. The in-game model used for the pistols are the same ones from previous Tomb Raider games.

Colt M1911A1

Nickel Colt M1911A1s are used as the inventory models for the pistols as they were in Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation, even though the in-game models are still the Tomb Raider II / III two-tone Browning Hi-Powers.

IMI Desert Eagle Mark VII

Returning from the third game is the Desert Eagle Mark VII which functions identically to Tomb Raider III and is found in the Russian levels. However in this game, the "lasersight" (a.k.a: scope) can be attached which allows Lara to take out some Russian snipers who cannot be targeted with normal weapons. The Desert Eagle Mark VII is also depicted in the game's artwork an the game's cover.

IMI Desert Eagle Mark I

Pierre returns along with Larson, carrying the Desert Eagle Mark I-styled Magnums he uses in the first game and he seems to be constantly waving them in Lara's face when they interact in cutscenes, never actually firing it. Sadly, Lara can never get her hands on them in this game.

Two-tone Pistol

Some kind of two-tone self-loading pistol appears in a flashback FMV sequence in a Nazi U-Boat. The sequence is very blurry and low resolution, so it is impossible to see clearly what exact model it is. However, it does not appear to resemble any Nazi-issue pistol.

The Webley No.5/Smith & Wesson Model 64 hybrid Revolver from The Last Revelation is found very early on in the Rome levels, and like the previous game, can be equipped with the "laser sight". Larson also appears to carry a slightly enlarged revolver, instead of the Hi-Power pistol he used in the first game.

Submachine Guns

IMI Micro Uzi

Whilst Lara's Uzis carry the same in-game model of the MAC-10s over from previous games, the menu icon and the world pick up model for the Uzis from The Last Revelation is the re-used IMI Micro Uzi, and like The Last Revelation, they function just the same as Tomb Raider IIIs.

Ingram MAC-10

Being the same model from previous games, the held in-game model of Lara's IMI Micro Uzi is still a MAC-10 It seems they never bothered to update it when making this game.

Heckler & Koch MP5SD6

Similar to the Heckler & Koch MP5SD6 from Tomb Raider III, the last set of levels set in the VCI (Von Croy Industries) has Lara only armed with the "HK Gun". This gun has three firing methods: Rapid mode, Burst mode, and Sniper mode. The gun features a sight, which this time actually places a dot over the intended target like an actual lasersight, unlike the actual "lasersight" attachment. The inventory menu model has the silencer and rear stock parts removed, presumably in an attempt to make it look like an MP5K.

On the previously mentioned flashback FMV on the Nazi U-Boat, Nazi seamen can be seen with MP40 submachine guns.

Franchi SPAS-12

The Franchi SPAS-12 with very inaccurate textures returns from Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation. Like in the previous game it can use two forms of ammunition: 'Normal' shotgun shells which are red and 'Wideshot' shotgun shells which are blue.

Zastava M76

Charles Kane aims this rifle at the escape pod on the FMV sequence after the sinking submarine escape, to ID that Lara is on board.

The HK53 model appears to make a comeback from The Last Revelation, as the previous game's HK33A3 model, but this time with the grenade launcher type thing removed and barrel shortened to give it the appearance of the shorter HK53. It is used by soldiers (or perhaps members of a well-regulated militia) during the VCI levels.

On the VCI levels, heavily-armoured men dual-wielding plasma rifles appear.
