This The Last of Us 2 Walkthrough for Chapter 6: Seattle Day 1 – The Forest has tips for fighting Stalkers and directions through the forest. Plus, locations for all collectibles including 1 Artifact and 1 workbench.
The Forest Walkthrough
This section opens with cutscene.
Defend yourself against the Stalkers. Once they’re dead follow Yara. Interact with the fence to make a passageway for all you, Yara, and Lev.
Fight the tall Seraphite. The Seraphite will swing 1-3 consecutive times. Dodge until you have an opening; when you do, throw some punches.
Lift the garage door of the Auto Repair Shop.
Workbench Location – Auto Repair Shop
Inside the repair shop is a red workbench.
Artifact – Failed Truce
Go to the back room, where the kitchen is. Check the table by the kitchen for a note.
Training Manual – Weapons Training Manual
Go further into the back section and to the left of the water cooler is a cabinet. On the filing cabinet is another training manual.
Exit by walking on the debris slope and drown down into outside. The next building is full of infected.
Drop down and head to the locked door. Lift Yara and Liv out of the area and wait for them to open it for you. While you’re waiting, you’ll need to fend off the infected: Runners, Clickers, and eventually some Shamblers.
Move constantly because they’ll be coming from all directions
Start out just in the main area (by the doors) but once the shamblers appear be sure to move and run constantly, heading for other rooms. You won’t be able to kill them all so defend yourself until you can run to the red car and have Lev pull you through.
You’ll pick up Yara and follow Lev. When you reach shelter a cutscene will play and lead into the next section: Seattle Day 1 – The Coast.
