Downtown in The Last of Us Part 2 begins during Seattle Day 1 when you can’t open Gate East 2 until you find some gas. In our Downtown guide, we’ll show you the location of every collectible along the way — 18 Artifacts, 5 Trading Cards, 2 Journal Entries, and 3 Safes.


DOWNTOWN MAP

Finding The Last of Us 2’s map of Seattle is helpful for navigating Downtown’s semi-open-world environment, but If you don’t have it, we’ve got plenty of screenshots below.

You enter Downtown from the Fuck FEDRA Gate heading west, and you’ve got all of Downtown to explore. We’ve broken it down below just like it is in the map above, taking a path that’s that starts at the bank in the south and ends at the dome. Here’s the order, as a table of contents:

  1. Bank
  2. Collapsed building
  3. Overpass
  4. Courthouse
  5. Coffee shop
  6. Pet store
  7. Record store
  8. Gate West 2
  9. Dome

The order is optional. It’s a suggestion, based on starting at the southern end of the map and heading north up 6th Ave. so that you do things in more or less the most efficient path. But hey, it’s an open world environment, so feel free to explore!
