The Last of Us Part 2 walkthrough, collectibles and items locations guide

Our guide to completing chapters and finding collectibles.

The Last of Us Part 2 is the long-awaited sequel to the PS3 post-apocalyptic adventure from Naughty Dog, and one of the last hurrahs for the PS4 - releasing months before the arrival of the PS5 later in 2020.

At first, Part 2 feels more of the same - tasking players with fighting their way past the infected with bottles, bricks and what few rounds of ammo they can get their hands on, in a story which follows Joel and Ellie several years after the events of the last game.

But as the chapters roll on, not only is the story take gut-wrenching turns as our The Last of Us 2 review discusses, but new systems provide more depth than you'd originally expect - from semi-open world areas such as Downtown Seattle through to expanded crafting systems and weapon upgrades.
