The bleak world of The Last of Us: Part 2 is absolutely packed with collectibles — you can find journal entries, artifacts, weapons, trading cards, coins, workbenches, training manuals, and safes. Throughout your 30+ hour adventure, you’ll find countless collectibles, and you’ll still have tons left to grab. If you’re aiming to Platinum this very highly-rated game, it’s all about finding those rare collectibles.
Some collectibles are random junk, but many give you a deeper understanding of the story. Journal Entries especially give you a peek into Ellie’s struggling psyche, and safes contain valuable items you might not be able to find anywhere else.
There is one exception to these locations — training manuals and weapons can appear in multiple locations! Why? Because the game specifically tries to help you by making them spawn again if you’ve missed them. You’ll still need to search optional areas, but don’t fret if you’ve missed a weapon or training manual. Keep exploring, and they might just pop up a second time.
