Surviving cataclysmic events is always hard, especially in the gaming world and without some good help and a solid strategy it becomes even harder. Surviving is the main focus of Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us: not only Infected will do everything they can to make sure you won’t be able to escape the infested United States but also soldiers and hunters will be getting in your way.
Understanding the many gameplay mechanics of The Last Of Us is going to be one of the most important things to do in the game: fighting all enemies in the game will only lead you to an early grave. Stealth is the key and prior information on the enemies’ capabilities and positions will prove to be more important than ever.
Luckily the game provides you with everything you need to avoid encountering and fighting Infected. Even if you’re discovered by them you may still be able to escape from them without getting damaged too much.
In The Last Of Us Survival Guide we will be covering a few tips which will help you in your survival endeavors by analyzing the most basic gameplay elements of the game. Once we’re done we will be delving further into the game. If you’ve been having problems with the new Naughty Dog survival horror game, you’ve come to the right place.
One thing you must always keep in your mind when playing The Last Of Us: being stealthy is the key of survival. Pretty much all enemy encounters in the game are completely optional and there’s always a way to avoid the infected. This is even more important if you’re playing the game on higher difficulty levels. Make sure to always stay crouched to reduce movement noise; always moving behind objects also helps. Always be careful about any possible sounds: the infected will make a bit of noise when searching you so use this to your advantage.
Even when you’re discovered you can escape from enemies without any problem: when running away from enemies, make sure to break their line of sight. Once they lose track of you, they’ll head back to the place where they spotted you first so make sure to not go back there.
