Do Relics do anything? Or just a collectible?

I just started and mustve missed the description on relics. Do they do anything for you? Or are they just collectibles scattered throughout the island?

You get to buy a signature shotgun called Bull for collecting 10 and a sniper rifle called AMR for collecting 20.

Oh ok awesome thanks! Does the mail get you any kind of items too?

Im not a fan of collecting things in games just to collect them, but if it gets me something I will definitely look for them.

Collecting 6 letters of the lost gets you Japanese Tanto, which deals more melee damage than the regular machete.

You also get 250XP for each relic you collect. So they're worth collecting.

But getting them all I think would be tedious and would ruin the gameplay experience.

I just get the ones I see on the way.
