**Tophy Collectables** **Weapons and Ammo** **Healing Items** **Crafting/Item Upgrades**
Firefly Pendant x1 Shotgun Health Can 20 Skill Pills
Bombs Note Bow Blades x 8
Boy's Diary 6 Shotgun Shells Binding x5
Nail Bomb Rag x 8
Wooden Stick x2 Alcohol x4
5 Arrows 55 Parts
5 Handgun Ammo Tool (level 1)

You'll receive the [SHOTGUN] plus [6 SHELLS] from Bill, and he also gives you a [NAIL BOMB], and you can now craft them as well (Blade + Explosive) . Search the back of the room to find [(1/4) BLADES], [(1/2) RAG], [BINDING], and [(1/4) ALCOHOL]. There's also a Workbench here, but you'll want to check the left side of the room first, which contains a [TOOL (LEVEL 1)] and [10 + 5 PARTS] .

Tip: The weapon holsters drastically decrease the time it takes to swap between weapons and are highly recommended upgrades.

Follow Bill to the staircase and search behind it to find a (fairly useless) [WOODEN STICK] . Head upstairs and move through the main church hall. Head inside Bill's room to find [5 SKILL PILLS] and the [BOMBS NOTE].

Follow Bill through the window and proceed through the graveyard; the fireplace could very well remind you of John Carpenter's The Thing...

In any case, there are five Clickers in the area up ahead. If you've got a brick be sure to equip it to waste the first Clicker with it. With a Lead Pipe upgrade you can instantly take out the second one as well, which leaves us with three more Clickers.

The Lead Pipe works wonders (especially with some creative use of bottles and bricks to stun them, combined with running over for an instant finisher with the Lead Pipe), but you can deal with them in any way you please; Bill will occasionally aid you. Since some Clickers drop Nail Bombs, consider using one of those (when you've maxed them out in your inventory, for example).

There are two more Clickers in the area with the round square so dispatch them, then search the corner next to the steps for [5 SKILL PILLS] , and look for a [WOODEN STICK] on one of the benches, should you need it.

Bill will unlock the gate for you, after which you'll be back on the streets. There are two Runners standing at the intersection; sneak up on them to strangle one of 'em; the other will be killed by Bill. There's also a Runner down the left alley that you can kill with a melee attack from behind.

The field behind the fence contains a Clicker (best downed with a brick + melee finished) and two Runners. The house's garage contains [10 PARTS] and [(1/4) BLADES], the kitchen [FIREFLY PENDANT (PETER MROZIK)].

$$$item 3066

As you proceed through the area, search the house on the left for [5 + 2 PARTS] . There are two Runners and a Clicker in the next field; deal with them (by now you pretty much know how to conserve ammunition, and if you've been doing that you're probably loaded).

As you head through the next backyard, look for a [HEALTH CAN] on the barbecue next to the house on the right. Search the shack to find [3 ARROWS] , a [BOW] and [13 PARTS] .

Head back to the street and head through the building near the truck; Ellie will go through the doggy door and unlock the door for you. In this backyard, two Clickers are standing underneath the roofing, but there are two more Clickers inside the house.

One way to deal with the two Clickers outside is to shoot both of them in the head with an arrow (which you can usually pick back up again). The other two Clickers inside the house can be shot with an arrow and killed with a brick respectively. Check one of the bedrooms for [(1/2) RAG] and [(3/4) BINDING]. There are [5 PARTS] in the storage room.

Head outside and climb the camper, then drop down from the hut and check the corner to the left of this backyard for [5 SKILL PILLS]. Enter the house and search the drawer in the hall for [5 HANDGUN AMMO].

Upstairs the closet contains [5 PARTS] and [(3/4) RAG] , the baby room [5 SKILL PILLS], and a [BOY'S DAIRY] in the children's bedroom.

$$$item 3069

Ellie will come into that room as well and you can have an optional conversation with her. Head back downstairs and search the garage for [2 ARROWS] , then help Bill with the garage door.

The Last of Us takes place in a bleak future, twenty years after a fungal infection has wiped out much of humanity, turning them in to mutated savages. Those who survived are not much better, with survivors huddled together in quarantined zones, struggling and scavenging for the remaining food, weapons - and anything else they can get their hands on. Joel is such a survivor, living a life of smuggling and black marketeering - and one with few morals. He's hired to transport a teenage girl named Ellie across the country, but what seems like a simple job turns into a desperate and profound journey across what remains of America.
