The Last of Us Part 2 Has a Secret Animation That Allows Ellie to Catch Ammo Midair

Ellie proves how extra bad-ass she is once again.

February 2, 2021

Just when you thought you knew everything about The Last of Us Part 2, another little easter egg gem drops into your lap. We have already seen recently how a Cordyceps-Infected ant made an appearance on a TV at the start of The Last of Us and a host of other cool easter eggs but did you know that Ellie can catch ammo in the air after killing an enemy? No, I didn’t either and it’s extremely cool.

Over on The Last of Us subreddit, user onlylaiden posted a short clip. Within the 23 second video, Ellie comes out from hiding behind the table and grabs some ammo; picking up bandages on her way around the corner. There she is faced with an enemy and in true Ellie fashion, she shotguns him right in the face. As the enemy falls to the ground, Ellie grabs the ammo by just reaching into the air like she’s done this a million times. It’s incredible to watch, especially in slow motion. Apparently, all you have to do is time this sequence really well and then press the triangle button. Simple as that.


The comments under the video are mostly all from people who are shocked that they didn’t know you could do this and, of course, others who have been doing this especially cool animation since the game released. I definitely know what I’ll be doing later. Check out the clip for yourself below and if you end up completing the Ellie “in air ammo grab”, comment below with a clip. We would love to see it.
