The Apocalypse makes survival hard, there are no easy ways to get supplies and most of the time you find that there are plenty of people and creatures that want to rip you apart just for the hell of it. The Last of Us is a game that shows just how hard it can be, and your character doesn’t help much by actually acting like a real human being at times, so it would be nice to have a few tips to help get us through it.
The fact is Naughty Dog have put a lot into creating a little reality to heighten the tension. This makes the game entertaining but it also makes it quite a challenge, it would be nice to have things a little more easy at times don’t you think? It’s nice that people have discovered some of the secrets of the game and just how you can cheat a little to help you get through.
Surviving the Last of Us
One of the first things to do is to know how to manipulate the difficulty settings. Play the game in the difficulty you are comfortable with and assuming you have not chosen the easy setting you can actually change it to this whenever you want. When you find you are short on supplies and need some more simply set the game to easy and you’ll find that the amount of supplies in the level is raised, simply take what you want and then set the difficulty back to what it originally was. This can be done anytime you need it.
When you have a modified pipe you may find that you run low on blades a lot, but there is a way to actually stock up quite easily. When you find yourself in need of blades stand over a normal pipe and then switch this with your modified one. What you’ll find is when you switch between your modified one and the other pipe you will get another blade in your inventory. This can be repeated as many times as needed until you have all you need.
In The Last of Us life is hard and you have to make the most out of what you can find, and that’s not a lot. These hints help to provide more supplies for you, which will in turn make the experience easier, especially when you have enough weaponry to fight back against a world that is trying to kill you. Careful to not make the game too easy though part of the fun is the challenge of pulling your characters through living hell and finding a way through it, why take away that pleasure?
