The Last Of Us

Game Guide

Unofficial Guide to The Last of Us (and the latest edition of The Last of Us Remastered) contains comprehensive information to help you complete the game and find all of its additional attractions. Most manuals contain detailed descriptions of all the game chapters. In this guide, we dedicate the greatest space for battle cited by Joel and Eli. There you will find descriptions of all encounters (including those that have powerful enemies and mini bosses) and high-quality maps of the toughest stealth phases with enemies and their routes marked on them. All of this should make it easier to deal with greater confrontations.

This guide contains a starter page that ranks first in The Last of Us. We have prepared some initial tips to help you understand the basics of the game and complete the first few chapters, as well as a more comprehensive survival guide with many useful tips. Trophy hunters, in turn, must be interested in trophy drivers. It contains a list of all available trophies and details about one of the trophies hidden in the game.

The Last of Us Guide also contains chapters on secrets. By reading this guide, you can identify key collection locations such as Firefly tags, artifacts, comics, or training guides. Collection items have been divided into separate chapters to simplify the search for lost secrets.

The Last of Us is one of the best ranked games in game history. Initially released only on the PlayStation 3 console, 2014 but also revised for PS4. The last of us is a combination of adventure action and horror horror genre. This action will take place in the near future, when humanity is cut off and only a handful of survivors fight for their lives, both among themselves and against people who are highly infected. The main actor of this game is Joel and a young girl named Eli. The girl hid the mystery of disease resistance that caused the collapse of civilization, and as a result, the protection of civilization became a player's priority. However, Eli is not a completely helpless character - he can help Joel, whose players control most of the game, in dealing with various threats.

The Last of Us Remastered is offered to PlayStation Plus (PS +) customers in October 2019 for free. The premiere of the second series of the series - The Last of Us: Part II - is scheduled for February 21, 2020. This sequel is the exclusive title for the PS4 console.

    Collectibles and secrets in The Last of Us

    During your playthrough of The Last of Us you can find numerous collectibles. Some of the secrets have only collector's value, while others (like, for instance, training manuals) can help you eliminate enemies from the later parts of the game. Our guide contains information about the location of all collectibles from the campaign. Descriptions of secrets were first divided into categories and then by chapters in which they are found.

  • All secrets / collectibles from the artifacts and pendants category
  • All secrets / collectibles from the training manuals and tools category
  • All secrets / collectibles from the comic books category
  • All secrets / collectibles from the Ellie's jokes category
  • Bosses in The Last of Us

    The Last of Us is quite a peculiar title, because during the playthrough you will not run into full-fledged bosses. The singleplayer campaign also does not have any final boss fight. However, we can still list two candidates for more difficult encounters and define them as mini-bosses. Those are:

  • Bloater from the Bill's Town chapter - This monster appears for the first time during the High School Escape stage. This is not the only time you will be facing that opponent - bloaters will appear in selected stages of the game. Tips on how to defeat this elite infected can be found in a separate chapter of this guide, How to kill the bloater?
  • David from the Lakeside Resort chapter - The encounter takes place when you are controlling Ellie. During the confrontation the player needs to act cleverly to prevent David from locating the girl and at the same time try to sneak up on the foe to perform surprise attacks. More information about the encounter can be found in a separate chapter of this guide, How to defeat David?
  • Is The Last of Us Remastered from PS+ a complete product?

    Yes, the PlayStation Plus edition contains the complete game. You do not need to purchase the Left Behind DLC separately, as it is a part of The Last of Us Remastered edition of the game. The same applies to both th physical and digital copies of The Last of Us Remastered.

    Is The Last of Us platinum trophy hard to acquire?

    Unfortunately yes, the platinum trophy can be quite difficult to acquire. Platinum on the PS4 version was unlocked by less than half a percent of the game owners (as of end of September 2019). It is due to several factors, such as:

  • The game needs to be completed at least twice, one of which must be done on the very high Survivor difficulty level.
  • All of Joel's skills and weapon upgrades must be unlocked.
  • All of the collectibles (secrets) in the game must be acquired.
  • Several multiplayer trophies must be unlocked. The most problematic are the Firefly and the Hunter, which force you to successfully complete the faction mode twice.
  • More information about the trophies can be found in our trophy guide.

    Does the Last of Us have a New Game Plus mode?

    Yes and it is required to acquire all of Joel's skills and weapon upgrades. The New Game + mode is unlocked after completing the game for the first time on any difficulty level. All of the previously acquired skills and weapon upgrades are transferred to the new game, allowing you to focus on unlocking only the remaining ones.

    Do I need to complete the game before playing The Last of Us: Part 2?

    Yes, it is recommended. The story of The Last of Us: Part 2 strongly refers to the events of the first installment of the franchise. Playing both parts also allows you to see the evolution of Ellie, who in the first game was still a teenage girl and in the sequel is already a mature woman with serious life problems.

    Do the multiplayer servers of The Last of Us still work?

    Unfortunately, only the PS4 version servers are still active For the PlayStation 3 version the servers were permanently shut down (along with Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3 ones) on September 3, 2019. This means that getting a platinum trophy on PS3 has become impossible. Platinum trophy and all multiplayer modes are still available on the remastered version on PS4.

    Does The Last of Us have microtransactions?

    Yes, but only for the multiplayer mode. Microtransactions allow, among others, to purchase skills, new weapons, new types of executions or new gestures. They do not apply to singleplayer campaigns.

    The Sony store also has payable avatars related to The Last of Us and The Last of Us: Part 2 games. Once purchased, they can be set in the profile menu of your PSN account.

    Can the Left Behind DLC be purchased separately?

    Yes, there is such an option and it is a standalone add-on. In the case of the PS3 version, purchasing the DLC is required to play through its contents, as it is not a part of the basic game.

    The Last of Us Remastered on PS4 contains the Left Behind DLC. The offer to buy it is therefore addressed only to those that know and/or have the basic version of the game and want to play through the DLC campaign.

    The price of The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC is 9.99€ / 9.99$.

    Is there a world map in The Last of Us?

    No. The protagonists travel through different parts of the United States, but you can never bring up a world map and therefore we have not prepared any world atlas in our guide. The course of the campaign is linear and there is no option to return to previously visited areas or to travel freely though large sanbox-like areas.

    Can Joel die? (SPOILERS)

    During The Last of Us campaign, Joel will be seriously injured. This happens during the Science Building stage as part of The University chapter. It cannot be prevented because it is justified by the story.

    Joel, fortunately, will not die. After advancing to the Lakeside Resort chapter you will be controlling Ellie while Joel is slowly recovering. The topic of saving Joel was presented in a more detailed way in the Left Behind DLC. In the DLC, Ellie is accompanied by her friend Riley.
