The Last Of Us Supplements Location guide

The Last Of Us Supplements Location guide
Another set of Collectibles in The Last of Us are Supplements. These rare items can be found in many forms but all can be used to increase Joel’s survival skills. This The Last Of Us Supplements Location guide will tell you where every Supplement is and how to use it. I’m writing these down as I progress. If you’re aware of ones I’ve missed please leave a comment and I’ll credit your name in the article.

  • Supplement Location #1
  • This Supplement is in the form of a plant. Shortly after you get Ellie out of the city and Tess tries to convince you that the doctors rumor is true. Ellie and Tess will jump over a couple of cars, check to the left past the tunnel under the road to find a glowing plant inside a pot.

  • Supplement Location #2
  • As you near the Capital Building you’ll have to work your way through the destroyed office building. Eventually you’ll see a Clicker blocking a door. Break through and search the bookcase to your right, there’s a pack of pills for Supplement’s on the bottom shelf.

  • Supplement Location #3
  • After you get attacked by a Clicker for the first time, Tess will tell you to check for supplies. You’ll need to open the door that requires a Splint, there’s another Supplement inside.

  • Supplement Location #4
  • Shortly after the 3rd Supplement you’ll have to actually kill a Clicker yourself. Continue past that point until you have to crawl through an area next to a weird corpse. Continue a short distance ahead to find a large sign saying “Oliver Lif”. Instead of going down head up the left side and then shimmy across to the right.

  • Supplement Location #5
  • Continue a short distance past the previous Supplement until you drop down into the Subway Station. Check the phone boxes to your left as you drop for this Supplement.

  • Supplement Location #6
  • After you escape through the metal door, when a hand is left attached to Joel’s foot, search the back of the large truck for more Supplements.

  • Supplement Location #7
  • Continue on and you’ll lift up a large concrete beam blocking the way. Ellie and Tess get through but you get stuck. Work your way around to that same room and there’s a locked door that requires a Shiv to open. Search inside for a Supplement. There’s the ingredients for a Shiv in the room if you need them.

  • Additional Supplement
  • Before you exit the Capitol building, via the window, there is a bottle of 5 pills on top of the SPEAKERS PODIUM at the front of the room (to the right of the window you must jump out of). Just thought I’d bring that to your attention. I just got out of the building. Second play-through.

  • Supplement Location #8
  • After you escape the Capital Building, by jumping through the window to the next building, you’ll be confronted by several enemies. Defeat them and leave via the left door. Take the right exit and you’ll find some Supplement’s on the desk.

  • Supplement Location #9
  • When you enter the Subway, with the military shooting behind you, you’ll have to kill 2 Guards. If you take a right from your entry point, right again to the trains; search behind the concrete pillar nearest the furthest train.

  • Supplement Location #10
  • As you progress through the tunnels you’ll reach a bit where Ellie can’t swim. Continue forward until you see a small platform with a corpse to your left. You can find an Artifact here but if you search under the water behind the corpse and surface the other side, you’ll find a Supplement.

  • Supplement Location #11
  • After you escape the Subway, you’ll enter a forest. Hug the right wall and you’ll come across another plant that can be used as a Supplement.

  • Supplement Location #12
  • Once you enter the compound during your search for Bill (the part with the plank over the rooftops) you’ll see a nearby building. Head inside, you’ll find the Supplement on a chair in the hallway. There’s also an Artifact nearby.

  • Supplement Location #13 & 14
  • As you progress you’ll find a fence locked from the other side using a Pipe. Nearby there’s a Shiv door. Open it to discover 2 Supplement items.

  • Supplement Location #15
  • As soon as you go through the gate near the previous Supplements take a left and explore the fenced area. You’ll find a plant inside.

  • Additional Supplement Location
  • As you continue down the road you’ll notice a safe on your left. Run down to the end of the street with the large Barricade, you can see A Note To Bob Artifact stuck in the wire. Return and unlock the safe.

  • Supplement Location #16
  • When you reach the area where a Clicker is killed by a Trip Mine, continue forward. There’s a couple of cars nearby, check the Shiv door near those cars for more Supplements.

  • Supplement Location #17
  • On your way towards bill, after you navigate the rooftops and use the bow for the first time, Ellie will hear a noise outside a building. Go inside to find the Supplement

  • Supplement Location #18
  • Once you leave Bill’s Safe House you can find the Supplement up the stairs inside the first room.

  • Supplement Location #19
  • Leave Bob’s Armory and head up the stairs to the church. Search the room to the right of the alter for a Supplement.

  • Supplement Location #20
  • After leaving through the Church window, head down killing the Clicker’s and you’ll reach a fountain next to an angel statue. Search to your left for another plant

  • Supplement Location #20
  • After you climb on the RV and jump out of the tree house take an immediate left. There’s a plant in the corner.

  • Supplement Location #21
  • Straight after the previous one, head inside the nearby house and search upstairs. In the room with the crib.

  • Supplement Location #22
  • Inside Frank’s house, search the kitchen. (Bill’s friend)

  • Supplement Location #23
  • After leaving Bill’s Town and killing the bandit ambush, head through the large metal door before going up the stairs. Check the first room on your right. There’s also a Training Manual inside.

  • Supplement Location #23
  • This one is hard to miss. Follow the main path until you see Ellie get ahead and Joel tell her to keep quiet. There’s a plant right in front of you as you drop down.

  • Additional Supplement
  • After #23 and before #24 there is a 5bottle right before the hotel area, after you drop down some stairs onto a truck, to hop a fence. ( this is after the bookstore fight, and immediately after you see the 3 dead soldiers [2 that are hanging] )

  • Supplement Location #24
  • Just before you enter the hotel, inside the flooded building, head up the stairs to find the Supplement. There’s also an important Artifact.

  • After Ellie helps you across the plank to the Hotel take a right as soon as you drop and search the bar.

  • Supplement Location #26
  • Continue through the hotel until you have to climb through a hole in the ceiling to the next floor. Search the bathroom drawer, left hand side.

  • Continue through the town, past the blue pickup. The second house on the left contains a Supplement in a cupboard under the TV.

  • Supplement Location #40
  • The same house. Go to the next floor and you’ll find a safe, head to the top floor and you’ll see a matchbook Artifact on the desk. This gives you the code for the safe.

  • Additional Supplement
  • After #40, during the “sniper” area, this one is a little tricky to get, due to the sniper consistently trying to hit you, especially on Survivor. The last house on the Right Hand Side, contains a 5 BOTTLE on the second floor. Be wary of Hunters throughout this area.

  • Supplement Location #49
  • Jump the wall and stick to the right. Climb in the first open window you see and climb the stairs. Exit onto roof, back inside another window, search near the beds for this Supplement.

  • Supplement Location #50

  • Supplement Location #52
  • After you finish the spores part of the University search the first dorm to your right.

  • Supplement Location #53
  • Once you enter the Science Lab go the opposite way to Ellie and check all of the drawers.

  • Supplement Location #54 & #55
  • Once you get into the Science Lab at the University (through the broken first floor wall), follow the yellow cable until you see an Exit sign. Down there is a Shiv door, go inside to find it

  • Supplement Location #56
  • After you hear the loud noise and head up the stairs in the Science Lab, search the nearby rooms ahead to get another Supplement.

    Supplement Location #57-#61
    #57 through #61 near the end in the hospital where they have Ellie, on the floor you start on and the floor you get too will have Supplements. I can’t remember there exact location, because I searched every room, but there are supplements in those rooms, all of them are in pills. I didn’t find any when playing as Ellie or Joel during winter

    Took a short break and got hit with the save bug. A word of warning. If you hit start and it has “Autosaving” permanently and you can’t hit save or load, if you turn off you’ll be starting about 1 hour in. Going to take me a while to get back to the point of the guide. Sorry guys.

    Many thanks to:

    • TheMachine

      Hello, thanks for taking the time to post this guide, just want to point one out that you missed so far. Before you exit the Capitol building, via the window, there is a bottle of 5 pills on top of the SPEAKERS PODIUM at the front of the room (to the right of the window you must jump out of). Just thought I’d bring that to your attention. I just got out of the building. Second play-through. Thanks again

      • TheMachine

        Also, After Supplement #11, once you enter Bill’s town (with the two clickers), there is a Shiv Door down the stairs to the left that contains a 10 bottle, and a 5 bottle.

        • TheMachine

          Lol, ALSO, in the same area as the shiv door, There is a two story apartment type building to the right of the SHIV DOOR containing another 5 bottle, as well as an artifact “Pills Note” in one of the rooms, second floor.. Again, this is RIGHT when you get into Bill’s Town, After the subway, and after the woods, and after you must put up/cross a plank to get over the fence to Bills Town. Sorry for the long msg.

          • TheMachine

            Oops, sorry, just realized what #12 meant, When you said ROOFTOPS, i thought you meant later on in Bill’s town when you have to put the plank over the ROOFTOP buildings. my bad.

      • CaptainCamper

        Thanks for your help Machine! Added and credited :D

      Sorry to keep pointing out ones you missed, just trying to help ya’, IN the #49 dorm room, don’t forget to open the drawers next to the window you climbed in to find a 10 bottle, easy to miss, but it’s in there.

      • CaptainCamper

        No need to apologize :D You heroes are what make our guides great :D Is that not the Supplement I listed here:

        Supplement Location #51
        Continue to the next floor and search the first Dorm to find this in a drawer.

        Sadly I’ve not had the time to get back into the game to finish this off yet. I put by 2 days but the bloomin save bug killed me. Haven’t had time away from work to finish it yet :D

        • TheMachine

          No sir, In the same room as #49 (the roof access one–before the generator area) there are two bottles total in that room, 1 – where you said, by the beds, but also: 2 – in the drawer by the window leading into the room :) Which save bug are you talking about? I’ve had my fair share of save problems, for instance, doing an auto-save, then progressing a few minutes, then “Restarting encounter” with my supplies having been diminished. ughhh pain in my ass

          • TheMachine

            Also, in the FIRST generator area, in which you must switch on a neighboring generator on the second floor surrounded by Infected, there is a bottle on a sofa in the furtherest hallway from the generator.

            • TheMachine

              cheers! :)

    • Owen

      Hey there’s is another one in the Sewer between number 37 and 38, when you split up from Henry and Ellie and you have Sam, in the room with all the clickers and runners there’s a small square room in the middle of the large room inside of there on the shelf is a 10 bottle of pills.

      • TheMachine

        Go I hate that part, such a pain in the ass, lol. Especially if you’re trying to stealth your way. It’s almost impossible without arrows. I was able to choke out the 4 runners in the front areas, but when I got to the Rain-water catcher areas, it’s almost impossible. THEN (on survivor) when you DO end up finally shooting the runner in that area, 4 MORE runners come from NO-where to literally rape you.

        • Owen

          Yeah that part and the one at the end of the sewer when your fighting off a horde of them in the small room, have got to easily be my least favorite parts in the entire game.

          • TheMachine

            I agree, see but that part, I found that you need to RUN AROUND and fight the Horde, Standing in one or two places is an easy way to die when you have 5 runners surrounding you, tearing at your flesh. I learned that, especially on Survivor, you can save your life, and a lot of your health and ammo if you run around OPPOSITE to where the horde is coming to, that way, you can disperse the majority, with maybe one or two stragglers that follow you, and BAM you take them out. Then others catch notice, and you do the same thing, Run to the OPPOSITE side again, and two or three may follow. Still a big pain in the ass, but MUCH easier to manage. Try it next time. Cheers
