Follow the road until you reach a dead end; search the soil near the car to find [(1/2) BLADES] and [(1/2) ALCOHOL], as well as the [EL DIABLO] , a scoped handgun. Drop down and follow the trail until you get fairly close to the bridge, then look for a vehicle to your right and collect the [FOREIGN ELEMENT] comic.

$$$item 3166

Travel underneath the bridge until you reach a hydroelectric power plant.

Upstairs is a valve which creates half of the improvised walkway. The closed door can be unlocked with a Shiv; inside are [10 SKILL PILLS] , [(3/4) ALCOHOL] , [50 PARTS] , [5 HANDGUN AMMO] , [EXPLOSIVE] and [2 ARROWS] . Back outside, hop over the railing and dive inside the reservoir. Swim inside the cabin and grab the raft - which is part of its roof - to get Ellie across the reservoir. She'll turn the valve allowing you to cross as well. Give her a high five for the effort.

Search the grassy field for [BINDING] near the rubbish and check the grave to trigger an optional conversation. Head up and move underneath the tree, then search behind the bulldozer for [10 SKILL PILLS] . Search the cabin for [(3/4) RAG] , [5 PARTS] and [(1/4) BLADES] , as well as the [POWER PLANT MAP] .

$$$item 3117

Check the Plant's gate to trigger a scene.

Proceed to the horses, then go inside the building and approach Tommy; talk to him for a conversation, then head upstairs. Check the room to the left for [10 SKILL PILLS], [(3/4) ALCOHOL], [10 PARTS] and [(1/2) EXPLOSIVE]. Head outside and follow Tommy to the other side.

If you walk to the right side of the overlook you can have an optional conversation (a flirt?) with a woman on watch. When you've reached the other side, search the crates in the far right corner for [5 PARTS] , then pet the nearby dog if you wish, then continue.

Inside, steal the [5 SKILL PILLS] and [(1/4) BLADES] from the table and look for the [SMOKE: CHEMISTRY (TRAINING MANUAL)] on the nearby machines, which makes Smoke Bombs last 10 seconds longer.

$$$item 3156

There's also a Workbench in the other room.

Head all the way downstairs and move towards the back of the generator room to reach a storage room that contains a [LEAD PIPE] , [2 EL DIABLO AMMO] , [10 + 25 PARTS] and a [FIREFLY PENDANT (RYAN OLIVERIO - 194)] . Follow Tommy inside the room near the stairs to trigger a scene.

$$$item 3089

Afterwards, start taking out the bandits one by one. In the room where two guys were previously standing over a table, grab the [PLANT SCHEMATICS] after wasting all bandits first.

$$$item 3118

You can find a [HANDAXE] outside, which is a pretty good weapon, but your Lead Pipe is probably slightly better (especially when you've upgraded it). There are several bandits out on the bridge, so take cover and start making your way through them; this is best done by moving via the lower side.

Inside the building, dispatch even more bandits downstairs and look for ammunition any of them dropped. You can also find [4 HANDGUN AMMO] and [3 RIFLE AMMO] . The other room can be searched for [SUGAR] , then a scene triggers.

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.
