The Last of Us DLC: Left Behind Trophy Guide (PS3)


Welcome to PlayStation LifeStyle’s trophy guide for Left Behind! As if you needed another reason to play The Last of Us, the single player downloadable content has finally arrived! This piece of DLC comes with 10 new trophies to earn. Just about all of the trophies can be earned via chapter select except for the difficulty related trophies and the BFFs trophy. There aren’t that many collectibles and they aren’t hard to find either. A Survivor mode play-through will be required if you want the 100% but there are only a few combat areas. The difficulty trophies do stack and Survivor is unlocked from the very beginning, so if you wanna knock out all 4 difficulty trophies in 1 play-through go for it.

Spoiler Alert: There are spoilers in this guide. If you are trying to avoid spoilers, it’s recommended that you complete the game before reading any further.

If you’ve played The Last of Us on Survivor before, you already know what to expect. You’ll take greater damage, enemies take more damage, enemies senses are higher, the listen mode is disabled and supplies are very scarce. Make sure you are searching for supplies in every area you come to. Only the chapters with Ellie alone looking for medicine will have combat. You’ll  want to play very stealthily. Ellie’s knife and the bow are very useful as those allow you to take out enemies quietly. You’ll also be able to pick up most of your shot arrows which will help with ammo. There are some parts of this DLC that enable you to lure infected to human enemies. To do this, throw a brick or a bottle to make a noise. Whenever you get a chance to do this, do it. Letting the enemies kill each other will help you greatly. Just make sure before you do it that you have a good hiding place. The enemies will all start running in every direction as they fight so be aware of their locations. The difficulty related trophies will pop after the credits have finished and you’re back to the main menu.
