10 play tips for The Last of Us on Playstation 3

BradyGamesLogoNaughty Dog’s The Last of Us has been one of the most anticipated games for the Playstation 3. Released on June 14, 2013, the game came out on a Friday, which is unusual, but much of last week’s news was about the E3 Expo going on in Los Angeles.  The action/adventure game features a new AI system called “Balance of Power”.  This new system allows enemies to react realistically to any situation by taking cover when they see the player, calling for help if they need it, and even taking advantage of the player’s weaknesses.  If you’re looking for some tips or having trouble with The Last of Us, guide publisher BradyGames has provided some help.

Always have a bottle or brick in your backpack, since these often come in handy to distract or stun your opposition.  Try taking a Clicker head on, by whipping a bottle at it and going in with melee attacks while it is stunned.2a

If possible, be sure you have a Shiv handy at all times. These weapons get you through Shiv Doors, where a huge cache of supplies can always be found on the other side. A Shiv is also required to take down a Clicker, once it has been grabbed.

3aAny time you enter an encounter, take cover and utilize your Listen Mode. This way you can assess the situation and plan your attack. Last thing you want is to be overwhelmed by a group of foes because you ran into the middle of them.


The harder the difficulty, the more you are limited on ammo and crafting supplies. Therefore, conserve your ammo whenever you can by remaining in stealth as you sneak past enemies or eliminate them with stealth takedowns. Explosives should be saved for Bloaters or large groups of foes.


Do not forget about your Smoke Bombs. Use one to obscure your escape into hiding when overwhelmed, or throw one at your enemies and rush in with a Shiv at the ready.
