In Assassin’s Creed Origins you can raid tombs (a lot of which are in the pyramids). This guide shows all Tomb Locations and their Solutions in ACO.
Before we begin, it’s worth noting that you can do all of these as soon as you’r done with the main quests in Siwa (starting area). After this the entire map opens up for exploration.
There are 19 Tomb Locations in total. The easiest way to reveal all of them is by buying the time saver “Tombs Map” in the online market (open inventory and press D-Pad Right). You automatically get 200 online currency for free after the first few main missions. That’s enough to unlock the tombs map from the store.
The tombs are puzzle labyrinths. You need to light your torch to see anything (hold D-Pad right to pull out the torch). Then you must find the tomb’s Ancient Tablet. This counts as “completing the tomb”. Tombs also contain Silica, which is the material required for the Secret Isu Armor (you need 50 Silica for it). The Silica are yellow glowing rocks found inside the tombs. Be sure to pick them up, getting the Isu Armor also counts towards “completing all locations” for the Old Habits trophy / achievement.
Overview by Area:
- Giza = 5 Tombs
- Saqqara Nome = 2 Tombs
- Isolated Desert = 3 Tombs
- Black Desert = 2 Tombs
- Haueris Nome = 3 Tombs
