The Last of Us Walkthrough

Stay up-to-date with our Last of Us video guide. Subscribe to Game Front Video Walkthroughs on YouTube.

Learn the ins-and-outs of survival with our The Last of Us walkthrough, with text and video guides showing you how to navigate this deadly world. After a killer outbreak of fungus, society has collapsed and disgusting zombies roam the streets — but it’s the violent survivors looking to prey upon the weak that protagonists Joel and Ellie should truly fear.

Naughty Dog’s serious-minded follow-up to their Uncharted series tasks players with sneaking or fighting through a ruined world, trying to get a young girl (Ellie) to safety. Playing from a third-person perspective, ammo is very limited, and stealth is key. Collected items can be crafted into new weapons or gear; scavenging for supplies is the only way to stay stocked up.

Here on the Last of Us walkthrough, you’ll learn how to sneak, fight, and survive every encounter. We’ll show you what weapons to use, which to save, and where to look for better tools. It’s all about survival, but we’ll guide you through each level with ease — revealing what to expect, and what to look out for.

Speaking of exploration, there are several different types of collectibles to discover. Find them all, and the rest of our extra in-depth guides, on the Last of Us cheats list. If you’re looking to earn Platinum too, take a look at the Last of Us trophies to see what challenges await.

    Notice how it took 14 minutes for something to happen. This is horrendous. There was no gameplay in those 14 minutes just walking. This is my problem with this game. If the demo is ike this imagine the rest of the game. I think I will wait until its cheaper and it comes with the story DLC in which they took out to sell later on.

    the narrator of this game is the worst.keeps on talking about things that ONLY entertains him.what i want to this gameplay is to become a gameplay.

    And those two comments prove two things.

    1. Doesn’t matter how incredible something is, some idiot with a computer will about it.
    2. Idiots shouldn’t be allowed to post anything anywhere.

    All I have to say is that these walk throughs helped me in getting through some parts of the game in which I was struggling with. If you think you can do better, please do. Then we’ll talk your efforts in trying to help others.

    James from Gamefront is hilarious… I love this walkthrough and the fact that he’s as into it as me. I use this when I’m stuck and we have pretty much the same reactions to the craziness that occurs! I find myself just watching and laughing… Well done guys, I highly recommend your walkthrough.
