Please be aware that there some some very, very mild character spoilers in the following guide.

There's a wide variety of weapons to acquire in The Last of Us Part 2. Since dangerous infected and hostile human factions lurk everywhere, you'll need to be vigilant and snatch every weapon you can to even the odds. One of the easiest guns you can grab early on is a shotgun. Here's how you can find it.

Where to find a shotgun in The Last of Us Part 2

Early on in your travels through Seattle - Day 1, you'll quickly get to a portion where you have a map, marking off different locations you've visited. Amusingly enough, the steps for finding a shotgun are basically the same as finding Nathan Drake's ring for a trophy, as both are found in the same room.
