The Last of Us 2: Out of Bounds Video Shows Gory Joel Scene Up Close and Other Unseen Details

If you love to read about hidden details and scenes that unearth more than meets the eye, you’re going to enjoy an up-close and in-depth look at The Last of Us Part 2‘s out of bounds footage.

It’s really an amazing experience to watch a game you have played countless times and love, get broken down and all of its hidden details revealed in a way you never knew existed.

We have seen plenty of easter eggs and unearthing of information regarding The Last of Us but this time, a YouTuber creates an Out of Bounds video showcasing all the things a player can’t see from their position.

*If you havent played The Last of Us Part 2, spoilers are ahead*

Another side to The Last of Us Part 2

YouTuber Speclizer has stitched together a video where they have explored previously hidden details that are made possible by accessing and breaking through The Last of Us 2‘s in-game camera.

Some of what they find is pretty incredible from viewing Joel’s gory death scene from a birdseye point, watching how the blood splatter animation changes, to teeth actually being knocked out when hit and a close inspection of Ellie’s fingers showing actual fingerprints.

Tommy’s Eye and the PS Vita Screen

In another area of the video, Ellie and Dina get a visit from Tommy and using the Out of Bounds trick, Speclizer pops out of the current scene and is able to get a close look at his eye after getting shot.

A more humourous one is when Ellie sneaks behind a WLF solder, cuts her throat and, again, using the exploit, is able to see that the PS Vita screen says “You’re Dead”. It certainly was for her.

Other Unseen The Last of Us 2 Details

Speclizer also gets up close to reveal a group of hidden tadpoles in a tub of water which certainly would never be found by players making their way through the game normally.

In another clip, we see that Ellie does actually place items inside her backpack and picks up only the ammo she needs for her gun. We see just how much detail Naughty Dog puts into the Tommy and Ellie scene where they are shooting infected on a hillside.

Speclizer is able to trace the actual bullet from the rifle as it travels towards the infected, showcasing that the bullet doesn’t just disappear into thin air.

You can watch the entire video below and discover all the hidden and unseen mechanics for yourself.

If you just can’t get enough of The Last of Us Part 2, we’ve plenty right here to keep you going. If you haven’t played the game yet, get on it right now availble on PS4 and PS5.
