Where do you find all Artefacts, Trading Cards, Journal Entries, Workbenches, and Safes in the Downtown chapter of The Last of Us 2? This is by far the biggest chapter in the game, as Ellie and Dina search Seattle for gas in order to enter the Serevena Hotel. There are 18 Artefacts, 5 Trading Cards, 2 Journal Entries, 1 Workbench, and 3 Safes to find. In this The Last of Us 2 guide, we’re going to reveal the locations of all collectibles in Downtown, in the order that you'll find them. Please note that if you're trying to visit every location in downtown Seattle for the Sightseer Trophy, we have a separate guide for that: The Last of Us 2: How to Visit Every Location in Downtown Seattle.
