The Last of Us Left Behind collectables and optional conversations

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 optional conversations tucked away in the game's DLC.

Left Behind Collectables locations

Below you'll find all of the collectable locations in the Left Behind DLC:

Back in a Flash

Here are the collectables you can find in the Back in a Flash chapter:

  • 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.


This is where you can find the two collectables in the Mallrats chapter of Left Behind:

  • Wanted Poster - After going upstairs and ducking to enter a room, go to the window and take this item from the big table.
  • 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

Here are the collectables you can find in the So Close chapter in Left Behind:

  • Atrium Note - Head to the corner on your right as soon as the chapter begins. The note is on the trolley by the Luciano Ristorante 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

This is where you can find the collectable in the Fun and Games chapter of Left Behind:

  • 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

This is where you can find the final collectables located in the The Enemy of My Enemy chapter of Left Behind:

  • 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.

  • Optional Conversation 10 - The Triple Phoenix mask located near the exit prompts the next conversation.
