Once you’ve escaped the turret truck, you’ll wash ashore in “The Suburbs.” In the fifth chapter of The Last of Us Part 1, you’ll need to find ten artifacts, three Firefly pendants, five optional conversations, two training manuals, and two comics. The collectibles are spread out across two sections: The Sewers and Suburbs. The game does not indicate to you when you’re moving onto a new section, but you can select and begin playing any section from the Chapters option on the main menu.
Read on to find out when each section begins and ends, and where all of the collectibles can be found in “The Suburbs.”
