Where To Find The Last of Us 2 All Easter Eggs
The Easter eggs in The Last of Us 2 vary from a lot of things, not only will you find some older consoles but to cement Sony’s legacy, you will also find few things that only hardcore Sony fans will remember. Make sure that you explore as much as you can and if possible it is a great idea to enable the accessibility option to find more objects scattered around in the game.
Though with everything else, you have to keep in mind that The Last of Us 2 is set in a brutal world and in it there is danger always lurking around, so it is a safe idea to keep an eye out when for infected and human enemies while exploring. Here is every Easter egg that you can find in The Last of Us 2.
PS Vita is one of the most well known and beloved handheld console developed by Sony. The PS Vita brought a new generation of players to the handheld console and the developers have found a clever way to include it in the game.
When you play as Ellie, you will come across Whitney who is mindlessly playing Hotline Miami on her PS Vita. You do not have to go out of the way to find this Easter egg as it is embedded in the story itself. This isn’t the only time when you get to see the PS Vita, as when you get to play as Abby you also get to see Whitney while she is playing her favorite game and have a brief chat with her.
PlayStation 3 is the original console where the first The Last of Us 2 was released in 2013. Since then the original game was re-released for the PlayStation 4 and now we get to see the PlayStation 3 while playing on the PlayStation 4.
Naughty Dog has taken meta to another level with this Easter egg. You can find the PlayStation 3 in the Patrol Chapter, all you have to do is search through some of the houses that are in this chapter. There you can also find a few copies of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and the Jak & Daxter Trilogy.
Dr. Uckmann Trading Card
Dr. Uckmann is Naughty Dog giving homage to the game director Neil Druckmann who can be found in the game as a trading card. As you progress through the game, you will see that Ellie is a huge fan of collecting cards, and finding this particular one makes the experience even better.
You can see Neil Druckmann as a mad scientist in the Downtown Chapter as you progress through the main storyline. Make sure to keep a keen eye on your surroundings and you will find this little nugget of secrecy.
Giraffe Stuffed Toy
Sighting giraffes have been one of the best things when you play The Last of Us, the giraffe shown in the game back then act as a ray of hope when you’re in the darkest of the hours. While you do not get to see this particular animal during the story again, you can get your hands on a giraffe stuffed toy.
You can find the giraffe stuffed toy in the Patrol Chapter and if you interact with the toy, Ellie will note it down in her journal, giving you a new entry helping you complete her journal.
If you have been following Naughty Dog’s progress you will know about Jak & Daxter. It was one of the earliest games developed by the studio who has since delivered some of the biggest games we have seen. Well, Naughty Dog hasn’t forgotten their roots and you can find the Precursor Orb which was an integral part of Jak & Daxter in the Hostile Territory Chapter.
Jak X: Combat Racing Arcade Cabinet
While Jak X Combat Racing was never made available for the arcade, the developers thankfully made an arcade version of the same game available in The Last of Us 2. When we first discovered it, we were hoping to get to play on the arcade and it would’ve been another call back to Uncharted 4: Thieve’s End.
You can find Jak X: Combat Racing arcade in the Flooded City chapter, all you have to do is walk your way inside the arcade and the first one on your right will be the Jak X: Combat Racing arcade cabinet.
When you’re in the Finding Strings chapter, make sure to explore the resort where Ellie, Joel, and Tommy are hanging out. You will find a Savage Starlight comic book that Ellie was a huge fan of in the previous game.
This is a nice nod to make sure that Ellie’s personality is intact with all of the little details paid an amazing amount of detail to. These are all the Easter eggs that we have managed to find in The Last of Us 2. Make sure to check out other guides about the Last of Us 2 right here.
