The Last of Us Part 2 is pretty generous when it comes to dishing out most of its key weapons and upgrades, but there are a couple of items that the game hides away fairly well. The Long Gun Holster is a useful tool that’ll let you quickly swap between your bigger weapons like the Bolt-Action Rifle and shotgun more quickly, benefiting you for the full length of the game. It’s also very easy to miss. To make sure you add this useful tool, we’ve put together a quick guide on how to get the Long Gun Holster in The Last of Us Part 2.
How to get the Long Gun Holster in The Last of Us Part 2
You can get the Long Gun Holster during the Seattle Day 1 segment of The Last of Us Part 2, while exploring the downtown area with Dina. It’s inside the Barko’s pet shop, but to access that you’ll first need to grab the key. This can be found in the Ruston Coffee Shop in the northwest of the map. While you’re here, you might also want to grab the Big Blue trading card as well.
Once you’ve searched through the Ruston Coffee Shop and found the Barko’s key, return to the Barko’s shop south of the Courthouse. There’s a foot in the alleyway between the two buildings that you can unlock using the key. Open up the shop and you can collect the holster from the table. It’s a permanent upgrade that’ll help you throughout the rest of Ellie’s journey, so make sure you don’t miss it!
It’s absolutely worth taking the time to get the Long Gun Holster in The Last of Us Part 2, and it won’t be too long before you have the opportunity to grab the Short Gun Holster as well. Given Ellie only has two pistols to use and will often run out of ammo for one or the other, you’ll also want to grab that.
