The Last of Us Part 2 is filled with different collectibles that players can find as they journey through the 20+ hour game. Some of these items will help advance the story while others are merely fun easter eggs added into the game by Naughty Dog. The Last of Us Part 2 Strange Relic is one of the latter and is a nod to one of Naughty Dog’s other franchises Jak and Daxter. In this guide, we will show you where to find the Strange Relic location.

Where to Find the Strange Relic Location in The Last of Us Part 2

Players will be able to find the Strange Relic location in Seattle Day 1 area of The Last of Us Part 2. Specifically, you’ll find the relic during Chapter 27: Hostile Territory. During this section of the game, you’ll find yourself exploring the Chinatown area with a bunch of different shops and buildings that you can loot for supplies. As you explore, you should eventually come to a large mural of a dragon on the side of one of the buildings, just after you climb over one of the walls. 

When you see the mural, you’ll be close to The Last of Us Part 2 Strange Relic location. Unfortunately, it won’t be as simple as walking through an open door, but it’s still not too hard to make your way to the relic easter egg. Walk down the alley to the left of the mural and head inside the last building on your left and go up the steps onto the second floor. Continue down the hallway and crawl underneath the blocked door (watch out for some enemies that will attack you) which will lead to a balcony area. 

Once you’ve made it to the balcony, you’ll see that you can jump across a big gap to another set of buildings. After you’ve made it to the other side, go through the entrance on your left and then through the next doorway. You should see a desk next to a boarded-up entrance, which is home to the Strange Relic location in The Last of Us Part 2.

This may seem like a lot of unnecessary work, but if you’re a trophy hunter, you’ll need to find the item to earn the Relic of Sages trophy. Further, if you’ve played other Naugty Dog games, you might know that this easter egg has appeared in the Uncharted series. Speaking of Uncharted, there is an easter egg in The Last of Us 2 for that series as well called the Antique Ring.

If you’ve already played through Chapter 27, don’t worry, you can still get the Strange Relic easter egg. Once you’ve beaten the game, you’ll unlock a New Game Plus mode that will allow you to replay previous chapters with all of your weapons and skills.
