The Last of Us 2 safe codes and combinations will help you get rewards like the gun store Big Win, as well as ammo, weapons supplements and more. While it's always possible to find the safe codes in the game, these special combinations are often far away from their associated safes, or just hard to get to owing to confusing puzzles or bloodthirsty enemies.
Popping every one will also get you the special Safecracker Trophy, on top of all the loot you can scavenge from inside, so we’ve got all 14 The Last of us 2 safe codes and combinations laid out clearly below, as well as codes for a couple of vaults and doors you can also open up to get at the treats inside.
Of course, if you want to do the same thing in the first game too, we've listed all The Last of Us safe codes right here for players to check out! After all, why shouldn't Joel be as much of a safecracker as Ellie after him?
Jackson Patrol safe codes and combinations
Safe 1: Inside the Market
Safe combination: 07-20-13
Contents: Scrap and supplements
You’ll find your first The Last of Us 2 safe on patrol with Dina in the market you reach by climbing up this truck. Once inside you’ll have to put on gas masks because of spores and push through a couple of rooms, and eventually a fungus covered crack in the wall. You’ll find the safe behind the first door on your right after the gap. The combination is “the date my good boy got employee of the month”. That’s on the notice board just outside: 072013.
Seattle Day 1: Downtown safe codes and combinations
Safe 2: Inside the Courthouse
Safe combination: 86-07-22
Contents: Scrap and supplements
To get to the safe inside the Courthouse you’ll have to climb this truck to reach a window that will get you inside.

The combination is on the whiteboard: 860722.
Safe 3: Westlake Bank
Safe combination: 60-23-06
Contents: Pump shotgun
You’ll have to squeeze through the dark opening at the base of this collapsed bank to access this safe, which is actually a bank vault.

The combination is in the bag next to the body you find immediately inside the vault area: 602306. You can get the pump action shotgun inside, as well as an Easter egg in one of the safety deposit drawers.
Safe 4: Gate West 2
Contents: Scrap, supplements, a health pack and a collectible trading card
This safe is tucked away at a checkpoint and can be accessed by squeezing through a gap in the fence.

Inside the safe you’ll find supplements, scrap, a health pack and a collectible trading card.
Seattle Day 1: Downtown Capitol Hill safe codes and combinations
Safe 5: Thrift Store
Safe combination: 55-01-33

Through the door at the back you’ll find a noticeboard with a letter stating that a safe combination is ‘the last six digits of Staci’s phone number’. Through the door on the right you’ll find the phone number in a bathroom which will give you the safe code 550133, and through the door on the left you’ll find the safe, along with a clicker. Inside you’ll find ammo and a health pack.
Seattle Day 1: The Tunnels safe codes and combinations
The Tunnels door code: Soda can combination
Door code combination: 15243
Contents: Ammo, supplements and crafting supplies
Not long after you have your first encounter with the shamblers in the red lit tunnels you’ll find yourself in a narrow corridor with a couple of side doors, one of which will lead into a break room with vending machines and a coffee pot (it’s just before the gate blocked by a barrel with the exit visible on the other side). Inside there’s a door locked with a combination. Around the corner from the door is a table with a note telling you to get a soda to find the code, and nearby is a vending machine you can smash open to get the soda can inside. On it, a note will give the first three numbers of the combination - 152 - and tell you to ‘figure out the rest’. Fortunately, the combination lock only has five buttons so all you have to is figure out where the three and the four go. The final combination is: 15243.
Seattle Day 2: Hillcrest safe codes and combinations
Safe 6: Hillcrest Garage safe
Safe combination: 30-82-65

However the combination for the safe is in a closed up bar you can access through a pet store on the other side of the main street. Be careful as there’s a shambler in there. Kill the infected and check the wall in the bar kitchen to get the combination 30-82-65. It’s one of the harder ones to get as it rewards you with the short gun holster, letting you carry two pistols at once.
Seattle Day 2: The Seraphites safe codes and combinations
Safe 7: Apartment bedroom safe
Safe combination: 10-08-83
Contents: Ammo and supplements
When you leave the theatre looking on route 5 to reach the hospital you’ll eventually see this apartment block.

You’ll need to reach the balcony to get into the upper floor apartment on the right by breaking the window, as the door is locked from the outside. There’s a note on the table inside saying the safe combination “is still set to our wedding date - I mean it’s been thirty years, but I assume you remember when that was, right”. There’s a door that leads to a bedroom where you’ll find a calendar marked “30th Anniversary: 10/08/13” and a safe. Subtract 30 years from the date to get 10 08 83 and open the safe.
Safe 8: Weston’s Pharmacy safe
Safe combination: 38-55-23
Contents: Ammo, supplements, health kit, crafting supplies and an explosive arrow

There’s also a trolley you can move to access a tiny hole you can crawl through to access the locked area. As well as the safe there’s a lot of resources inside so it’s a worthwhile stop off.
