The Last of Us 2 Remastered No Return Tips and Tricks
In order not to fall victim to this mode, especially on higher difficulties, you will have to follow some things that will allow you to have an easier life. In this article, we have decided to bring together in one place some advice that has helped us personally overcome challenges.
Take Your Time
It might seem obvious, but taking your time is imperative. Death in No Return is permanent, so if you make one wrong move, you will lose all your progress and have to start over from the beginning. Consequently, thinking carefully about what you will have to do to continue your adventure is the best thing to do. Take your time and thoroughly study the path you want to take and the approach you want to use.
Furthermore, when you are creating the various tools that you will have to use in combat, remember that time will not stop, as happens in the story of The Last of Us 2 Remastered. For this reason, try to create what you need before the encounter actually begins. If you have to do this once the meeting has started, find a safe place and then create what you need. You don't want to get killed while you're creating shells, Molotovs, or medkits.
Don't Forget About Supplies and Resources
While you are playing The Last of Us 2 Remastered No Return, don't forget about the supplies. Without them, in fact, you won't get very far. You may be able to complete the first encounters, especially if on low difficulty, but as you progress through your run, you will have to deal with increasingly stronger enemies until you reach the final boss. You don't want to find yourself facing the boss running out of ammo with poor weapons and few upgrades, right? So, pay attention to the supplies that are scattered throughout the various maps and collect as many as you can. Trust me, they will never be enough.
Furthermore, don't forget to also collect the resources you find, as they will be fundamental to upgrading your weapons and also your character's abilities. If you've played the main game (and we're almost 100% sure you have), you know that this will give you a big advantage, especially in some battles. Consequently, do not underestimate the power that supplies and resources have in a game like this.
Watch Out For Enemies
The aim of The Last of Us 2 Remastered No Return mode is to kill waves of enemies in different maps until you reach the final boss and complete a single run. As a result, it is very important that you understand how enemies move. Of course, it goes without saying that human enemies are more difficult to deal with because they use strategies to hide and strike you by surprise; while the infected have more basic movements, although they can be more powerful to kill. For this reason, knowing your opponent is very important.
One thing you should definitely take into consideration is the fact that enemies will start coming from one direction and then slowly gravitate towards your position, wherever you are. This, therefore, allows you to be able to adopt a stealth strategy in which you will be the one waiting for the enemies to arrive in the wolf's lair, rather than going in advance and risking being found. This, however, works better with human enemies than with the infected, precisely because we told you earlier about using more strategy.
Another little tip we can give you is that, as soon as you start an encounter in No Return, you will see a small icon for a few seconds. This icon will tell you where enemies will start arriving from. It's a small thing, but this can allow you to better plan your strategy, since you will know where the enemies will come from and therefore which route to use to be as safe as possible.
This advice might seem a little misleading, but in some cases it is a useful thing to take into consideration. It's not always necessary to fight. In some cases, simply making your way through enemies stealthily and using your surroundings to your advantage is the right thing to do. Although you will not get added points because you have not eliminated the threats, you will still be able to progress through the game, receive the rewards you deserve and complete the challenges. Therefore, consider carefully when it's time to be a ninja and when it's time to be Rambo.
As soon as you have completed your first run in No Return (no matter whether successfully or unsuccessfully), the game will give you the opportunity to unlock Custon Runs. This feature is nothing more than the possibility of creating games according to your rules: you can change the encounters, the enemies, the bosses, the mods you want to enable and much more. In short, it allows you to create an ideal run for your way of playing. Furthermore, it is also important for a particular feature, namely Random Seed.
This particular feature will certainly be very useful to you because it will allow you to eliminate the element of surprise that characterizes The Last of Us 2 Remastered No Return mode. In fact, you can choose the exact order of what will happen in a run, so you know what you're going to encounter. In this way, you will have the opportunity to complete entire runs more easily, which will certainly be useful if you plan to complete the challenges that the game offers.
