The Last of Us 2: Downtown Seattle Collectibles Guide
Upon opening The Gate Ellie and Dina will gain access to Downtown Seattle. Downtown Seattle serves as a major area in the game and because of its importance there are a ton of collectibles to find. This is both a good and bad thing as having a lot of collectibles means exploration, but that can also mean missing certain ones if you aren’t careful. To help you avoid missing any of the collectibles in this area use our The Last of Us Part II Downtown Seattle collectibles guide below.
