The Last of Us 2 Player Sets The Ultimate Anti-Ambush Trap

A rather explosive way to avoid being ambushed!

January 4, 2022

One player has taken it upon themselves to create the ultimate trap in The Last of Us 2 after they decided they were sick and tired of Ellie being ambushed during a certain workbench encounter.

Now that The Last of Us 2 is well over a year old, fans are becoming more and more creative with how they approach certain missions and situations. Although the popular survival game follows a linear story, that doesn’t mean you can’t revisit previous missions and approach the situation with a new set of eyes.

One mission, in particular, gives fans a bit of a fright on the first playthrough after Ellie is ambushed whilst at a workbench. But one Reddit user decided they were going to get their own back and create the ultimate trap during this Last of Us 2 mission.

The Last of Us 2 Player Sets Explosive Trap

YouTuber and Reddit user Wolf of Thorns decided they were fed up with that infamous ambush scene during Chapter 3, so they took it upon themselves to completely prevent it from happening.

For those that don’t know, Chapter 3: Seattle Day 2 includes a mission titled “The Seraphites” where Ellie is ambushed at a workbench by a large number of WLF soldiers. The encounter caused us to be fearful of every single workbench in the game afterwards, but it turns out there is a way to completely stop it from happening.

Thanks to Wolf of Thorns we now know that placing as many trap mines as possible in the apartment before using the workbench will kill all of the soldiers before the cutscene begins. Not only does this save you a jumpscare, but it also makes for some pretty fun and creative gameplay.

Make sure to check out Wolf of Thorn’s video below, and get your trap mines ready if you’re playing through the mission for the first time!
