The Last of Us - Left Behind collectables, Optional Conversations, notes

Where to find every last Left Behind collectable item, and take part in every Optional Conversation with Riley as well.

Left Behind has its own fair share of secrets and collectable items, some of which you'll gather naturally as you work your way through the story, while others you'll have to do a bit of rummaging around for. Here's the location of all the special items and conversations tucked away in the game's DLC.

Left Behind collectables

Back in a Flash

  • Combination Note - Behind the counter in Weston's Pharmacy.
  • Pharmacist's Note - Take the note that drops when you remove the key from the body caught up in the spores.
  • Salon Note - You'll find this note on the corpse as you enter Rarity Nail Salon from the Pixitek shop.

Back in a Flash

  • Wanted Poster - After going upstairs and ducking to enter a room, go to the window and take this item from the big table.
  • Optional Conversation 1 - After shimmying over the ledge, keep an eye out for the Firefly logo on the left-hand wall.
  • Optional Conversation 2 - Enter the mall, go down the escalator, turn right and make your way towards the Affordable Getaways holiday poster.
  • Optional Conversation 3 - After finishing the last conversation, go back past the escalator and look for the water guns poster.
  • Optional Conversation 4 - Talk to Riley outside the dirty yellow tent at the bottom of the next escalator in the mall.
  • Optional Conversation 5 - Examine the cabinet at the back of the same tent.
  • Optional Conversation 6 - Leave the tent, then go straight ahead until you come to a saddle draped over a bench.
  • Optional Conversation 7 - Put the wolf mask on in the Spooky Town shop, then go to the rear of the store where the jar of eyeballs is.

  • Optional Conversation 9 - Put on the witch mask and talk to Riley again.
  • Optional Conversation 10 - The Triple Phoenix mask located near the exit prompts the next conversation.
  • Optional Conversation 11 - Work through all eight of the Skeleseer skull conversations. It's located in one of the corners of the store.
  • Warning Note - After the brick-throwing section, head downstairs, then enter the room on your left as soon as you enter the hallway. The note is on the desk by a typewriter.

So Close

  • Atrium Note - Head to the corner on your right as soon as the chapter begins. The note is on the trolley by the Glazed Dough shop entrance.
  • Generator Note - When you get to the generator, interact with the containers on top of it.
  • Atrium Recorder - Once the generator's powered up, go through the unlocked door, up the escalator, then look inside the tent on your left.

Fun and Games

  • Optional Conversation 12 - Go to the carousel and examine the horse.
  • Optional Conversation 13 - Read all of the jokes from the book Riley gives you after the carousel ride.
  • Optional Conversation 14 - Walk down the steps and use the Sharesnap photo booth.
  • Kitchen Note - When you're done with the photo booth, go inside the Fast Burger kitchen and take the note from the counter at the rear of the building.

The Enemy of My Enemy

  • Crew Photo - Head to the boarded-up shop with the Coming Soon sign right at the start of the chapter. The photo is on the corpse in the corner.
  • Duct Recorder - Once you've killed the first wave of enemies and gone inside the air duct, follow the pool of blood to the corpse with the item on it.
