Polygon’s The Last of Us Part 2 Seattle Day 2 – The Shortcut collectibles walkthrough begins with Abby, Yara and Lev arriving at the aquarium. It ends with Abby and Lev falling through the pool room ceiling. There are 6 Artifacts, 2 Coins, 2 Workbenches, and 1 Safe to find in The Shortcut.
Amputation Supplies artifact
The Shortcut Artifact 1 of 6
As with the notes from Owen and Mel in The Park, Abby will begin The Shortcut with the Amputation Supplies Artifact, a handwritten list of medical supplies from Mel, in her Artifact inventory.
Nevada Quarter Coin Location
The Shortcut Coin 1 of 2
As Abby and Lev begin the journey to the sky bridge, keep an eye out on your right for Franklin’s Barber Shop. Once you find it, break a window to enter, then walk behind the counter on the left to find the Nevada Quarter.
Survivor Plea Artifact location
The Shortcut Artifact 2 of 6
From the Nevada Quarter location, move to the other side of the river, to enter the brick building through the hole in the wall. Take the stairs up a level to find the Survivor Plea artifact, to the right of the second floor entrance.
Neighbor Exchange Artifact location
The Shortcut Artifact 3 of 6
Jump off the bridge to the balcony on the left, smash the glass to enter an apartment with a tabletop RPG left out on the table. Progress past the kitchen to find the Neighbor Exchange artifact on the table with the whiteboard. This will give you the clue to figure out the combination for the safe: 30-23-04.
The Shortcut Safe 1 of 1
From the Neighbor Exchange artifact, turn around and enter the closest room. The safe is against the wall. Enter the code 30-23-04 to grab some ammo and crafting supplies.
Scavenging List Artifact location
The Shortcut Artifact 4 of 6
At the spot where Abby tells Lev to be careful because the water is “really picking up,” hop across the river to reach Interbay, a cell phone store. As you enter, look for the corpse in front of you. Find the Scavenging List artifact next to it.
The Shortcut Workbench 1 of 2
To the left of the Interbay entrance, you’ll find a workbench beneath a sign that reads “Interbay Wireless Electronic Support.”
Colorado Quarter Coin location
The Shortcut Coin 2 of 2
Once inside Westport Optics, turn to your right, break the furthest window back on the right side, then drop onto the awning to find the Colorado Quarter.
Seraphite Truce Artifact location
The Shortcut Artifact 5 of 6
Walk across the wooden bridge and into a crumbling office building. Climb some rubble to reach the next floor then turn to your left to find a room with computers. In the desk to your right, find the Seraphite Truce artifact.
The Shortcut Workbench 2 of 2
From the altar to the Prophet, turn right to enter a room with a ladder leading further up. To the right of the stairs, there’s a workbench next to a stack of barrels.
Seraphite Orders Artifact location
The Shortcut Artifact 6 of 6
After getting off the elevator, walk past the chest with a lamp on it, to find a message, the Seraphite Orders artifact, taped to a door frame.
