Each location contains the fragments for three relics. Those who have played 'Tomb Raider: Anniversary' will recognise the relics from that particular game. In Tomb Raider Reloaded, each relic is broken down into three pieces with each of those pieces offering permanent perks when found. Collecting the whole relic adds an additional perk. To add to the challenge, each piece can be levelled up, up to 30 times. Exploring later chapters provide a higher chance of discovering Relic pieces in the puzzle stages. As a tip, the level 'The Lost Valley' seems to offer a relic piece quite frequently upon replaying.
