With The Last of Us Part 1, players would need to not only acquire the corresponding note - but also manually enter the code to unlock the safe. This guide will cover everything you need to know about the locations and keycodes for each safe in the game.

The Outskirts Safe Location And Keycode

The first safe you will encounter in the game is during The Outskirts section, where Joel, Ellie, and Tess traverse through an underground area populated with abandoned shops and empty store shelves.

Keycode: 03-43-78
  • Once inside the store, stick to the right side of the wall until you come across a Clicker that guards the safe.
  • Kill the Clicker and gain access to the safe.
  • The accompanying keycode can be found by locating the store counter and scouring nearby drawers until you find a collectible titled “Note To Derek.”

This safe contains 50 scrap parts that can be used for weapon upgrades.

You don’t need to find the note to open a safe.

Bill’s Town Safe Location And Keycode

After making your way through Outskirts and making it to the Capitol Building and onwards, you will come across Bill’s Town, which houses the second safe.

Keycode: 05-17-21
  • The safe is located near an abandoned pickup truck.
