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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Once you leave Bill’s Safe House you can find the Supplement up the stairs inside the first room.
Leave Bob’s Armory and head up the stairs to the church. Search the room to the right of the alter for a Supplement.
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
After you climb on the RV and jump out of the tree house take an immediate left. There’s a plant in the corner.
Straight after the previous one, head inside the nearby house and search upstairs. In the room with the crib.
Inside Frank’s house, search the kitchen. (Bill’s friend)
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.
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.
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] )
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.
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.
After you turn on the generator in the hotel and use the keycard, go up the stairs and search the nearby room for a Supplement.
After Ellie helps you with her rifle continue through until you have to use the cart to boost up and over. Search the small room with the workbench.
Continue through to the large street area with enemies and tripwires. Head to the far left corner and search the room that’s Skiv locked.
When you’re running from the military truck you’ll eventually get into a window and an apartment. Continue to explore the apartment to find the Supplement.
After meeting Henry and Sam continue down the stairs to the Shiv door. Check the bedroom for a Supplement. There’s also a Comic here.
Inside Henry and Sam’s Safehouse, check the counter near the fridge.
After you split from Sam and Henry you’ll find a room with a circular bar. On the left side there’s a small cabinet, search inside for a Supplement.
In the sewers with Sam and Henry, take the right passage and get Ellie to sneak through the grate. There’s a Supplement and Artifact inside.
Once you clear the Sewer room with the generator explore the small room to the left in the tunnel for another Supplement.
Continue through the Sewers until you enter the area decorated with children’s paintings. Go through the door and you’ll find Supplements inside a locker near the goal.
A short distance past #36, up the stairs and check the door on the left.
After escaping the sewers with Henry and Sam, travel down the path and enter the first house you can. Search the cupboards for another Supplement.
Continue through the town, past the blue pickup. The second house on the left contains a Supplement in a cupboard under the TV.
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.
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.
Once you reach the Snake Trail continue until you reach the damn. Next to the first turn-wheel is a Shank door, open the door and you’ll find the Supplement inside.
As you reach the entrance to the Power Plant check the other side of the yellow Bulldozer.
After you split with Ellie in the Power Plant head straight up the stairs and check the room on your left.
On the desk in the main Power Plant room, you can’t miss it.
Inside the ranch that Ellie escapes to. Immediate left door as you enter.
When you arrive at the University follow the road ahead to the end and enter in the final entrance. Take a left once you enter and search behind the tipped car.
In the University, search the room with the Workbench.
In the University after you use the generator and pass through the gate, take a left. There’s a wall with wire on it. Get off the horse and jump onto a container and into a room to the right.
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.
When you reach the second gate that needs a generator you have to crouch through a door. This Artifact is on the desk directly in front of you.
Continue to the next floor and search the first Dorm to find this in a drawer.
After you finish the spores part of the University search the first dorm to your right.
Once you enter the Science Lab go the opposite way to Ellie and check all of the drawers.
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
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:
Update: Sadly I’ve still not had the time to dive back into the game but I will update when I get chance. Please feel free to leave any that you find and I’ll update the guide as well as adding your name to credits. Thanks heroes!
