After much anticipation, The Last of Us Part 2 has arrived so it’s time to dive into this harrowing post-apocalyptic world. While it’s possible to beat this game without spending a lot of time scavenging, we strongly recommend you hunt for the different safes scattered throughout the different parts of Seattle. Almost every safe requires you to input three numbers and you can typically find the code somewhere on a piece of paper around the item.
These not only contain useful crafting materials and ammo but key items that can make your journey much easier. The first safe you will come across during your playthrough as Abby will be the WLF Gun Cache safe. This one is well hidden and if you’re not paying attention it’s easy to walk right by it. Here’s where to find the code and the safe to get a new, potent weapon.
What is the Gun Cache Safe Code?
You will find the WLF Gun Cache safe after you’ve escaped the hardware store filled with infected. Once you’re behind the store you’ll see a couple of office trailers that are overgrown. The door to the accessible one is locked, so go around the back and bash the window in with a brick or bottle. Jump into the trailer and examine the note to learn the code is tied to “the big win.” Initially, I thought this was referencing the photo in the back of the men holding up a giant fish they caught. This was meant to trick you, as “the big win” is referring to their winning lottery ticket on the corkboard by the window you broke.
The code for this safe is 17-38-07.
Now open the door and head over to the grey building that’s adjacent to the trailer you just looted. The front door is locked, so go through the opening on the left and then look to your right. You should see a hole in the wall that Abby can climb through. Inside will be the safe along with some crafting supplies scattered throughout the room. Inside the safe is the Hunting Pistol, which is one of the strongest weapons in the entire game.
Unlike other weapons, the Hunting Pistol must be manually reloaded after every shot and fires a single, high-damaging round. This makes it ideal for taking down larger foes like Shamblers or brute Scars. However, if you are itching to try this gun out, there’s a group of Seraphites patrolling the rail yard just ahead of you. This section is pretty difficult to sneak through given how limited space is, so you may need to go loud. If you do use the Hunting Pistol, make sure to take your time and aim since there is a lengthy reload time between shots.
Remember, combinations never changes for safes and doors, you can bypass a lot of the busywork of hunting down notes. Given how scarce resources can be, opening every safe should be a priority. They’re rarely out of the way, plus there’s a trophy tied to unlocking them all. For more guides and safe codes make sure to visit our other guides for The Last of Us Part 2.
