Need a Graveyard 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 Graveyard, which is part of the Bill's Town chapter.
There are 2x Artefacts, 1x Firefly Pendant, 1x Workbench, and 1x Optional Conversation to find in Graveyard, as Joel, Ellie, and Bill step up their pursuit of a car.
The Last of Us 1: Graveyard Walkthrough
Once you enter the church cellar, a cutscene will play immediately continuing from the events in the Safehouse. Sit back and enjoy the cinematic for now.
Weapon: Pump Shotgun
Watch the cutscene after entering the cellar and you'll eventually be handed a new Weapon: the Pump Shotgun.
Speak with Bill across the room in the cellar and he'll give you a new toy. This time you'll get the Crafting Recipe for a Nail Bomb. Rummage through the rest of the cellar for any supplies.
While you're still in the cellar, head to the opposite wall, where you retake control of Joel after the cutscene. There's a Workbench up against the wall.
Workbench Tool #1: Pliers
In the room just behind where you pick up the Nail Bomb, you'll also find a Workbench Tool in the form of some Pliers. It's in the red tool box on top of the little shelving cabinet at the back of the room. This will give you Tools Level 1.
Once you've collected everything and used the Workbench, head back to Bill and follow him upstairs and into the church. Run towards the stained glass window.
Artefact #1: Bombs Note
In the church, as you get near the stained glass window, look off to the right for a room you can go in. Bill will tell you it's his room. There are some Supplements in here you can collect, but most importantly of all, there's an Artefact on the table called Bombs Note.
Once you're done in the church, speak to Bill and he'll open the window. Climb out and drop out into the graveyard. You might want to consider reloading your weapons and crafting some items before moving out of the churchyard, as things are about to get a bit more intense.
Follow Bill down the staircase and on your left are a bunch of Clickers. You can pretty easily sneak past these if you want to, or you can go in guns-heavy if you have the resources. We'd recommend slipping by, but it's completely up to you how you choose to approach.
Keep moving your way down through the graveyard. There are more Clickers in the courtyards. Again, you can choose to slip by them and save your resources, or face them head on. It's a good idea to stock up on Shivs if you want to get some easy stealth kills. Another option is to use your Bow, and aim for the head. When you get to the area with the fountain in the middle, look to the left for some Supplements.
You're getting closer to your destination, the high school, but there are still a lot of Clickers and Runners in the way. Fortunately, you shouldn't have too much trouble dealing with these in stealth. Remember to stay crouched, move slowly, and pick them off one by one. Have your weapons reloaded and ready in case things go wrong.
Firefly Pendant #1: Mrozik's Firefly Pendant
Work your way up the yard and into the house. Directly to the right is a laundry room with a toilet in it. There's a Firefly Pendant named Mrozik's Firefly Pendant on the floor, next to the toilet.
Keep working your way through the various gardens before you enter a garage on your left. It's tied on the other side, but Ellie can crawl through the doggy door to let you through. Unfortunately, while you're making progress, more Clickers await. If you toss a Molotov cocktail into the patio you can deal with at least two with one good toss. Be careful, though, because the noise will bring more out of the house.
Follow Bill through the house you just cleared and out the door. There's an RV to your left which you can climb on. Get to the top and take the makeshift bridge across into the treehouse. Then drop down into the yard with the swimming pool. If you want to take the time, you can loot the shed behind the swimming pool for some supplies. Alternatively, follow Bill into the house.
Artefact #2: Boy's Diary
In the house with the swimming pool in the yard, go up to the second floor and into the boy's bedroom. You'll find an Artefact named Boy's Diary on the bench beneath the window.
Optional Conversation #1
Once you feel like you've adequately looted everything from the house, and you've crafted any necessary items and reloaded your weapons, head to Bill in the garage and help him lift up the door. The next area is filled with infected, but you should now have the supplies to deal with them. Either sneak past them, or kill them. As you make your way closer to the school, you will be ambushed, so make sure you're prepared. Once you're done, boost Ellie up on the bus and she'll knock a ladder down for you, allowing you to climb up.
Drop down from the bus and brace yourself, because nothing ever goes to plan in this game. The doors are locked and there are infected on your tail. Follow Bill around the back of the building and through the window. Then get ready to make a High School Escape.
