There are some secrets that have prevent tricky to figure out in The Last of Us 2, with the soda can keypad code in the subway tunnels being one of the trickiest. Here’s how you can solve the puzzle.

The Last of Us 2 has some pretty decent loot and secrets hidden behind certain doors and areas, meaning that if you burst past them or don’t have the code, you could be missing out on serious goodies. 

One such locked door comes during the Seattle – Day 1 portion of events where, while playing as Ellie, you’re chased into the Subway tunnels. While wading through the tunnels, you’ll come across a break room and a note from ‘V’ who just wants a specific can of soda. Here’s what you need to find for her.

After finding V’s note to Dewey inside the break room, you just have to open up the soda machine that sits close to the door. You can shoot it open or through something through it, just break through the glass.

Once it’s open, grab the lone soda can that is sat there and inspect it. As you rotate around, the second part of V’s note will become clear. They’ve given you the first part of the code – 1-5-2 – but you’ve got to figure out the rest. However, the combination that you need is actually pretty simple –  1-5-2-4-3.

  1. Find V’s note on the floor of the break room
  2. Smash open the soda machine closest to the keypad door
  3. Read the second note 
  4. Type in 1-5-2-4-3 on the locked door’s keypad
  5. Head inside and claim your prizes!

You can then turn and use that code on the door with the keypad – this should be on your left. Punch it in and the door will open, prompting Dina to ask Ellie how she managed to open it. 

Once inside, you can find a stash of crafting materials as well as a bottle of supplements and some ammunition. These will help you as you progress further through the game, and the secret code barely takes a minute or so to figure out.

Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us is officially getting a TV adaptation, thanks to television genius HBO. Here is everything we know about it, including cast, release date, and more.

First released in 2013 for PlayStation 3 and later released on PS4, The Last Of Us is often regarded as the best zombie game of all time, as well as the best PS exclusive. It follows the story of Joel after an outbreak of the Cordyceps fungus takes over the United States. He is tasked with transporting Ellie, a young girl who is immune to the disease, across the country in hopes of developing a cure.

Following the success of the first title, Naughty Dog announced a sequel to the zombie survival action game which was released on June 19. Furthermore, television network HBO is also creating a TV show based on the series, and ND Vice President Neil Druckmann and Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin are on board to write and executive produce it.

Cast, characters & director

In March 2020, Home Box Office announced that they were taking on the project, and its first director has since been revealed. Breaking Bad and Chernobyl director Johan Renck is set to helm the pilot episode, as told in an interview with Discussing Film.

“It’s an ongoing TV series. So that’s not something that I will be able to take on to that extent, but I’m part of that series and I will be directing at least the pilot,” he said.

Not all of the cast and characters are known so far, though Joel and Ellie will obviously play a huge part. Who will be taking on their roles is currently unknown.

In a tweet on March 8, Naughty Dog Vice President Neil Druckmann confirmed that Riley from Left Behind will be in the show, as well as Tess, Maria, and Marlene.

“And now you have Ellie, Riley, Tess, Marlene, Maria, ****, and a few others!” he tweeted, blocking out another character with four square emojis. Now that Part II has been released, we know that he was referring to Abby.

On September 22, 2020, during a Reddit AMA, Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau hinted that he may be portraying Joel in the upcoming series. While he didn’t outright say he was playing him, he also didn’t deny it when asked and even mentioned that he had just gotten his hands on Part II. Only time will tell if it comes true.

Release date

There’s no current release date set for the show, but considering the fact they’ve yet to announce casting, it wouldn’t be wrong to assume a release date of late 2021, or even 2022.

Craig Mazin revealed during his weekly podcast Scriptnotes that production wouldn’t start until Part II of the game had released. “We can’t start on it right away because [Naughty Dog is] still finishing up the second game, but pretty soon,” he said.

The Last of Us Part II was released on June 19, but given the current state of events, it’s unclear as to whether production for the show will start any time soon.

The plot

In March, The Hollywood Reporter reported that the series will cover the events from the first game, with the “possibility” of it delving into Part II in the future.

Whether it will continue past the events of both games is currently unknown, but speaking to GameSpot, Troy Baker, Joel’s voice actor, claimed that the show could have “three to four” seasons to match the pace of the game.

We can only hope that HBO doesn’t rush through it… *cough* like the final season of Game of Thrones *cough*
