    How to unlock Tools of the Trade

    Each of the two main characters in The Last of Us 2 Remastered have very different tools of the trade. That doesn’t just refer to weapons, but it refers to items to craft too - so, from Molotovs and Explosive arrows for Ellie; to Pipe Bombs and Incendiary Shells for Abby.

    In order to unlock the ‘Tools of the Trade’ trophy you need to craft one of each. Now, that sounds easy, but the tricky part is actually getting all of the recipes, and while some are unlocked during the story, others you’ll have to find either the item itself, or the training manual that allows you to unlock said recipe.

    Below you will find a list of all Ellie and Abby’s items that you will need to craft to unlock this trophy:

    All Ellie’s Item Recipe Locations:

    • Health Kit - Jackson, Patrol - Story-related – Dina will give this to you in the Patrol chapter.
    • Molotov - Jackson, Patrol - Story-related – Dina will also give this to you in the Patrol chapter.
    • Stun/Smoke Bomb - Seattle Day 1, Downtown - Above the entrance to the Synagogue (the FEDRA Ration Distribution Center), in one of the small lookout huts.
    • Melee Upgrade - Seattle Day 1, Downtown - In order to get this recipe you need to get the Crafting training manual and buy the upgrade. The Crafting training manual is found in the Downtown subchapter, by climbing down the fire hose on the broken bridge in the middle of the map.
    • Trap Mine - Seattle Day 1, Capitol Hill - The recipe for this is in an apartment near the Capitol Inn - you’ll need to push the dumpster next to a balcony and climb up. The recipe is in the back bedroom.
    • Silencer - Seattle Day 1, Capitol Hill -  To craft a Silencer you need to find the Stealth training manual and buy the upgrade. The Stealth training manual can be found in the right-hand corner of the coffee shop near the gas station in Capitol Hill, where the workbench and encounter takes place.
    • Explosive Arrows - Seattle Day 2, The Seraphites - To craft Explosive Arrows, you’ll need to find the Explosives training manual and buy the upgrade. The Explosives Training Manual can be found in the luxury apartments, quite early on in The Seraphites chapter. Simply interact with the workbench in the apartment on the first floor, and then fight the 4 WLF deserters who ambush you. The training manual is in the bedroom they were hidden in.

    All Abby’s Item Recipe Locations:

    • Health Kit - You’ll start with this recipe as default.
    • Silencer - You’ll start with this recipe as default too.
    • Melee Upgrade - You’ll start with this recipe as default as well.
    • Pipe Bombs - Seattle Day 1, On Foot - Story-related - You’ll learn this in the warehouse as part of the story.
    • Shivs - Seattle Day 1, On Foot - To craft a shiv, you need to find the Covert Ops training manual and purchase the upgrade. The Covert Ops training manual can be found when Abby and Mel have to climb on the suspended boat to escape the boat rental place - it’s in the boat itself.
    • Incendiary Shells - Seattle Day 1, The Forest - In order to craft Incendiary Shells, you need to find the Firearms training manual and purchase the upgrade. The Firearms training manual can be found near the garage after the melee fight with the hulking Scar in The Forest chapter.
    • Hunting Pistol Ammo - Seattle Day 1, The Forest - To craft Hunting Pistol Ammo you need to find the Firearms training manual and purchase the upgrade. The Firearms training manual can be found near the garage after the melee fight with the beefy Scar brawler - yes, this is the same training manual that allows you to make Incendiary Shells.
