Rise of the Tomb Raider Save Location

The location of your Rise of the Tomb Raider game saves varies based on two things: the operating system you're playing the game on, and the platform you're using to play the game (Steam or Microsoft Store).


If you're playing ROTTR on Steam, your save game files can be found at the following path:

Steam library folder > userdata > a folder named after your SteamID3 > 391220 > remote

If you don't know what the heck to do with the above path, don't stress, we've got you covered! Below we've provided detailed additional help.

First, go to your Steam library folder. If you don't know where that is, the default location is as follows:

Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam

Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Steam

Linux: ~/.steam/steam

If none of those exist, see this guide to locate your Steam library folder and then return.

Once in your Steam library folder, go into the userdata folder (below image is for Windows, but Mac/Linux will have the same folder):

Steam userdata folder on Windows

In the userdata folder, there is a folder for each of the Steam accounts that have played on your current installation of Steam. Each folder is named after the SteamID3 of the Steam account it relates to:

  • If there's just one folder, go into that one
  • If there's more than one folder, go into the one named after the SteamID3 of the account you want to view the save files of (search for a SteamID3 finder online to find yours out)

Once in the correct folder, go into a folder named 391220, then from within there, the remote folder. Inside the remote folder, you can find your Rise of the Tomb Raider save files.

Microsoft Store

If you're playing Rise of the Tomb Raider via the Microsoft Store, your game saves can be found by:

Pressing WINDOWS + R on your keyboard to open a Run window. Then, paste the following into the text field and hit OK:


Inside the File Explorer window that popped up, you will find a folder containing the text RiseoftheTombRaider somewhere in the name, for example 39C668CD.RiseoftheTombRaider_r7bfsmp40f67j. Go into this folder.

From within that folder, all you need to do is go into the SystemAppData folder, and then finally the wgs folder.
