The next area is infested with Runners, which you'll want to take out in a stealthy fashion. The first Runner up ahead will soon enough walk towards the concrete block in the middle of the road; hide behind it, then strangle her as the opportunity rises.

Hide behind the car next to the school bus and wait for the next Runner to turn its back on you, then move in for the kill. Hide behind the low wall, then move to the next Runner in the backyard to dispatch it. From here, move between the school buses and hide behind the concrete roadblocks until you have a chance to take out the Runner girl in this area.

Unfortunately, as soon as you move through the next few buses, a group of Runners will assault you. One way to deal with the effectively is to dash towards the black vehicle slammed in a wall up ahead, climbing on top and dealing with the Runners one by one (melee combat included). After defeating the group, boost Ellie up at the school bus, allowing her to grab a ladder. Drop down and follow Bill to the window around the corner to trigger a scene.

Surviving the Ambush Video

Inside the building, sneak to the main hall, grab the brick and strangle the nearby Runner when possible (but sneak VERY quietly). At the top of the (mostly destroyed) stairs you can find [(1/2) BLADES] and [(1/2) ALCOHOL]; leave the nearby Clicker alone.

There's a Clicker standing in the doorway up ahead who will start walking out when you get a little closer, but there's also a Runner down the hall which you don't want to seen by.

When the Clicker (and the Runner) are moving away, enter the classroom and look for a [HEALTH BAR] on the lecturer. Should you be detected, backtrack into the hall and take out your enemies one by one before proceeding through the classroom.

Sneak through the classroom undetected (or take them out). In any case, the Runners in the final hall will need to be killed. You can wait for them to sneak into the classroom to ambush them. Head through the door at the end of the hall to trigger a scene.

It's your lucky day; you've encountered a Bloater, very damage resistant foe that not only instantly kills you should you come close, but also hurls dangerous spore-like objects at you. First kill the two Runners, then focus on the Bloater, using (strategically placed) Nail Bombs and Molotovs to down it.

You can find a [(3/4) RAG] near the stacked crates near the door the Bloater came out of, along with [10 PARTS] in a cabinet (from that small room).

Boost Bill up at the container near the windows, then waste three more Runners and climb up yourself. Drop down, kill any Runners coming at you and move past the pickup, then climb the ladder to trigger a scene.

Inside the house, grab the [8 SHOTGUN SHELLS] from the corner, then search the bedroom on the other side to find [(3/4) BINDING], [(1/2) ALCOHOL], [(1/2) EXPLOSIVE], [9 PARTS] and a [HEALTH BAR]. There's a [NOTE FROM FRANK] on the small table.

$$$item 3068

Head inside the kitchen to find [5 SKILL PILLS] , then get to the car and have an optional conversation with Ellie before moving to the back and push the car.

You'll be attacked by Runners and Clickers twice. Fight them off and when the car's up and running, hop in the back (ignore the remaining enemies). Several scenes will play. Bill will give Joel a [SIPHON HOSE] ; check it out in your inventory to 'add it' to your collectibles.
