In Polygon’s The Last of Us Part 2 Jackson collectibles guide, we’ll show you the locations of the 9 Artifacts, 4 Trading Cards, 4 Journal Entries, 1 Safe, and 1 Workbench in this chapter.

Jackson has seven sections (or subchapters): Prologue, Waking Up, The Overlook, Patrol, The Horde, The Chalet, and Packing Up, but you won’t see those names during the campaign. You can find and begin playing from these sections in the Chapters section of the main menu. Each subchapter gets a section in our guide, and we’ll explain where and when they begin and end below.

PROLOGUE COLLECTIBLES

After the opening cutscene, you’ll control Joel as he rides to Jackson with his brother, Tommy. There aren’t any collectibles in this bit. Hooray!


WAKING UP COLLECTIBLES

The Last of Us Part 2 “Waking Up” begins when you take control of Ellie for the first time. You’ll begin in her home, which is full of fun little easter eggs, but you can’t actually collect any Artifacts until you collect her backpack and head outside. This section has 1 Artifact and 2 Trading Cards.

SEISMICAYLA TRADING CARD LOCATION

WAKING UP TRADING CARD 1 OF 2

Ellie’s buddy Jesse will guide you through most of this section. When he leads you out of the greenhouse gardens and onto he main drag, you’ll walk along the porch of this blue building.

When you reach the porch stairs, turn left and stick to the wall until you reach this pinboard, where the Seismicayla Trading Card is stuck.

VOLUNTEER REQUEST ARTIFACT LOCATION

WAKING UP ARTIFACT 1 OF 1

Jesse will lead you down the street to the local diner, The Tipsy Bison. Before you go in, check this little porch area opposite the bar. On the crate, next to the orange ladder, you’ll find the Volunteer Request Artifact.

SETH’S NOTE ARTIFACT LOCATION

THE OVERLOOK ARTIFACT 1 OF 1

At some point in this very linear segment, you’ll need to crawl under a house. When you emerge and see the light of the checkpoint through the broken fence, turn around.

SCENIC OVERLOOK JOURNAL ENTRY

PATROL JOURNAL ENTRY 1 OF 2

Early on, Dina will guide you through the crack in a wall to a scenic overlook of the mountains. Take it in together. When you’re done, follow her back through the crack in the wall, and then immediately head back out on your own. This time when you approach the overlook, you’ll get the prompt to create the Scenic Overlook Journal Entry.

NOTE TO SANTA ARTIFACT LOCATION

PATROL ARTIFACT 1 OF 6

After a linear ride, you’ll drop down into a little cul-de-sac with a few houses and a mobile home trailer. Here, you’re able to dismount and search your surroundings. On the left side of the street, there’s a house with a red brick foundation. Circle around the gutted portion, climb the ruined stairs, and then climb through the elevated hole.

You’ll find yourself in a bedroom, and there’s a letter — the Note to Santa Artifact — in the right bedside table.

Hop up on the truck, onto the awning, and through the blasted-out window. In the closet, you’ll find a shelf with the Tesseracter Trading Card. You’re done in this area!

EUGENE’S FIREFLY PENDANT ARTIFACT LOCATION

PATROL ARTIFACT 4 OF 6

After you clean up at the grocery store, you’ll hop back on your horse and ride out. After the storm picks up, you’ll take shelter in a library. Eugene’s Firefly Pendant is literally impossible to miss. You’ll smash a window to an office, and hop through. As you exit through the one door, Ellie will notice the pendant and pick it up.

While you’re here in Eugene’s makeshift bedroom, check his bedside table, and you’ll find the Eugene’s Ultimatum Artifact. (It’s just across the room from the desk that holds the Artifact we wrote about immediately above this one.)

WORKBENCH LOCATION

This one’s impossible to miss, too. After you start up the generator, the game will introduce you to the crafting bench. You need to use the Workbench before you move on.


THE HORDE AND THE CHALET COLLECTIBLES

Next, you’ll play through the two chapters above. They’re very fast and linear, with no collectibles to hunt.


PACKING UP COLLECTIBLES
