The Last of Us 2 Walkthrough and Guide

Workbench Locations

Last Updated:

Workbenches are the only places in the game where you can customize your ranged weapons using Parts that you scavenge while exploring. The upgrades are all beneficial and permanent but due to the number of parts you can find, you should prioritize which weapons to upgrade first and what upgrades to select first. The rifle and your pistol are reliable starter weapons and you should upgrade them first since their ammo are somewhat common. Prioritize upgrading Stability to reduce weapon sway (unless you disabled Weapon Sway in the Accessibility options) then Capacity, while the others will depend on the weapon. Damage upgrade for the rifle can be bought later to make it more potent in one-shotting most enemies and eventually adding a 6x scope to it will allow you to pick off most targets at great distances.

Workbenches can be used as often as you need as long as you can go back for it. Some workbenches especially those you encounter in one-off areas can only be used while you’re there so keep finding parts and use workbenches whenever you can. On this page, we will help you find all workbenches in the game. Most can be encountered along the way while others need some exploration to locate them.

The first workbench you'll find is in The Library. You can find it in the hallway beside Eugene's room but you'll have to power up the nearby generator first. Finding it is part of the story so you won't miss it.
