Safe Locations & Solutions Guide

Chapter 3: The Outskirts

Safe #1:

  • Combination Location: In the large area where Joel must sneak by the Infected Clickers, there are stores in the left and right sides. From the entrance, stick to the left wall to enter a store. Jump the counter to find a shelf, open it to find an artifact inside.
  • Safe Location: The safe is in another store on the right of the entrance. The safe is in the corner next to the counter, and its protected by a Runner. Take it out, and get the loot inside.

Chapter 4: Bill’s Town

Safe #2:

  • Combination Location: Dropping onto the main street, there’s a truck on the right side of the street, with a Pizza restaurant on the left. Run all the way down the street to the makeshift barrier to find a note with the safe combination posted.
  • Safe Location: Remember the pizza place? Backtrack up the street and look on the truck across the street. The safe is in the back.

Chapter 5: Pittsburg

Safe #3:

  • Combination Location: Inside the flooded hotel, move the ladder to climb up to the upper level. Turn right and shimmy up the steps to reach elevator doors. Look in the corner on the ground to find the safe combination note.
  • Safe Location: Jump back down into the flooded level below, and check behind the counter to the left near the entrance. There’s a door behind the counter leading into a smaller room with the safe.

Chapter 6: The Suburbs

Safe #4:

  • Combination Location: Once Joel and the others escape the sewers, you’ll enter an abandoned neighborhood. The last house that can be explored is just past the fenced home. Go inside, and take the stairs up to the third floor to find an artifact on the computer desk.
  • Safe Location: With the combination, go back down to the second floor and search the bedrooms for a hard-to-miss safe.

There’s also one in Boston, I’m the goldberg building.
Safe is right before the subway, in one of the rooms off the room full of clickers.
Combo is a bit before that, in a drawer in one of the side rooms. Don’t remember which, sorry.

Hey champion. I am up to the part in the suburbs where if I go any further I can’t back track to the safe in the hotel. I am looking furiously and if I happen to find it first I will let you know the location. If you have found it first can you please update your guide.

Thank you kind sir. I am thankful for people such as yourself that go to the effort to help others who are a little bit completionist.

If you can’t see my email, send me a PSN message to let me know you have updated, if you would like.
