Weapons are the only way to survive in an infected world, and you’ll collect an expanded selection in The Last Of Us: Part 2. There are more weapons to grab, and many of them can be completely missed. That includes some unique shotguns and pistols that give you more utility than ever. We’re listing all the weapon and holster locations — chapter by chapter.
Along with weapons, you’ll also have weapon holsters. Unlike the first game, you don’t craft these. You’ll have to find them somewhere in the environment — like the guns, if you miss them, they’re gone for good. Holsters allow you to quickly swap between two weapons without having to switch using your bag. They’re incredibly useful, and missing even one can wreck your experience.

Some guns, gadgets, and holsters can be missed in The Last Of Us: Part 2. You can find weapons in safes or other secret areas — each weapon is added to your total inventory. Not all weapons can be located, some will automatically appear in your bag. There are a total of 12 weapons, and four extra weapon holsters.
