The Last of Us: Left Behind [Surviver Mode] tip
Level: So Close
The first encounter in the generator room can be challenging. There are four stalkers that attack when you climb into the water with the jerry can, looking for gas. Remember, stalkers can see you, your flashlight, AND have echolocation capabilities, making them extremely hard to sneak up on!
When I came to this point, the only supplies I had were a first aid kit, a brick, and my trusty knife, and NO ammo. Well, I can’t spar with every single stalker, they’d kill me! And without listen mode it’s a bit difficult to pin point their location. Luckily, when you kill one, they’ll drop ammo for you gun (be sure to load it right away!!) So what you want to do, ideally, is take them on one at a time.
The way I chose to do this was I climbed up on the second truck (the one with the open trailer. There’s a box near the front of the trailer on the far side that lets you climb on top of it.) There is only one way to get up on the truck, making it a good choke point to pick off the stalkers one at a time. Once I had stealthily climbed up there, I just walked around a bit and turned on my light to alert them to my location (remember they can hear you very easily!), and they came up one by one!
The good thing is that the stalkers have a run and hide behaviour. So instead of dashing right at me, they mostly ran around on top of the truck for a moment, looking for somewhere to hide, and unable to find one, ran straight back down without attacking me at all. This gives you an opening to hit them with your brick and stab the first one. Then it will drop ammo, as will each consecutive one, for you to kill the others with (or you can climb down the truck and grab another brick if you like, to conserve ammo).
*coughs in embarrassment* I screwed up my own plan a little bit and missed one of my brick tosses, which is why my health looks so sad haha. But if you’re not as clumsy as I am, you should be able to pull it off no problem!
