If Ellie is a comicbook nerd, then Abby is a magpie. Scatted throughout the latter half of The Last of Us 2 are pockets-full of coins to find – each bearing the design of an American state.
Lucky for you, there aren’t 50 to track down – but Seattle is dense with them all the same, and they’re very easy to miss.
Here are all of the ones we’ve found so far. We’ll be adding them all once we get proper screens for them; The Descent is very spooky.
First we’ll drop a checklist of all of the coins and where they’re found, before going into the detailed instructions of where to pick up each one below.
Of course, be warned. This page could be considered to coin-tain spoilers. But we’ve kept it as vague as possible so you could follow along on a first playthrough.
