Need a Beyond the Wall walkthrough for The Last of Us 1, including all collectibles? In this The Last of Us 1 guide, we're going to show you how to achieve 100% completion in Beyond the Wall, which is part of the Quarantine Zone chapter.
There are 3x Artefacts, 2x Firefly Pendants, and 2x Optional Conversations to find in Beyond the Wall, as Joel and Tess continue to make their way through Boston.
The Last of Us 1: Beyond the Wall Walkthrough
It's still 20 Years Later, but now you're Beyond the Wall. Down in this basement area, follow Tess down the corridor to the right and vault over the piping by pushing up and X simultaneously.
Weapon: 9mm Pistol
Meet back up with Tess, and push the triangle button to boost her up on the ledge. Then press triangle again to get her to pull you up. In this dark area, use the triangle button to push up the wooden barrier, and climb into the café.
Optional Conversation #1
Immediately outside the café, through the front doorway, you'll get an Optional Conversation with Tess. Push the triangle button to start the discussion.
Follow Tess forward up the grassy hill and into a backyard type area. She'll mention that she's looking for a ladder, and you can find it behind the overgrown car directly ahead. Pick it up with triangle and then carry it back to the building on the right. Use it to climb up and through the hole in the wall. You'll come out in a room with a pool table.
Be sure to explore the kitchen tabletop immediately on the right of the next room, as this has Weapons Parts you can use to upgrade your weapons.
Firefly Pendant #1: Vigil's Firefly Pendant
Before following Tess down the stairs, head into the bedroom directly across from the room you entered, and look in front of the small table next to the two mattresses on the ground. A Firefly Pendant named Vigil's Firefly Pendant is on the floor. Collecting this will unlock the Fallen Firefly Trophy.
Follow Tess down the stairs, and eventually she'll point out some spores in the next room. Wait for Joel to put on his gas mask, then on the right pay attention to the hole in the wall.
Optional Conversation #2
Crawl through the hole in the wall in the spores area by using the circle button. You can examine a dead corpse along the way to learn of the origins of the spores, which is an Optional Conversation opportunity.
At the end of the corridor is a wooden beam blocking the way. Move it with triangle and then squeeze through the gap. A fellow survivor will plead with you to help them, and you can choose to either ignore their request or shoot them. Just remember to pick up the ammo on the floor.
Crouch under the blocked door and you'll instantly encounter some Clickers. The first enemy will be a tutorial, so hold R1 to activate Listen mode and then creep up behind them and execute a stealth kill. You can choose to sneak past the next two Clickers or kill them; if you're trying to conserve ammo, we'd recommend just crawling past.
In the kitchen, you can grab a Granola Bar from the counter, and there's a back room with a closed door that you can open with some ammo inside. Once you're done, head up some stairs to the Natale & Vegiard Legal Group.
Artefact #1: Boston Q.Z. Map
At this point you should be able to open your backpack by pushing the touchpad. You'll note that you already have a couple of Artefacts collected, the first is the Boston Q.Z. Map.
Artefact #2: Military Pamphlet
The second Artefact already in Joel's backpack is the Military Pamphlet.
Artefact #3: Note to Brother
Open the door on the left wall of the Natale & Vegiard Legal Group, and on the desk to the left is an Artefact named Note to Brother.
Now exit the building and drop down into the basketball court, following Tess through the swamp-like pond area and between some burned out buses.
Follow Tess towards the building, where she'll remove a wooden panel as a way to get in. Climb up and she'll note that the plank of wood that's used as a makeshift bridge has dropped into the room below. Follow the path around the room down to collect it.
Pick up the plank with triangle and pass it to Tess who will take it off you. Then use the hole in the wall to climb back up to where Tess was, and cross the plank, using the left analogue stick to balance your body.
Follow Tess outside, down the stairs, and then around the alleyways until she unlocks a door.
Firefly Pendant #2: Glueck's Firefly Pendant
Directly opposite the door Tess opens is a tree, and if you look closely at its rear branches you'll see a Firefly Pendant hanging in it. Shoot it down and pick it up to get Glueck's Firefly Pendant.
Head through the door Tess opened to continue onwards to The Slums, ensuring to collect some ammunition from the counter before exiting the room on the child's clearance.
