After discussing with Ellie about some smoke in the distance, you'll land in front of some buildings after traversing through the forest. You'll also have to take out a Clicker in a shed. You'll find the Pills Note in the building on the right after stepping on a small metal staircase. After finding your way inside after a creaky door, go left from the hallway.

At the end of the road where we found the arcade in a pizzeria and Hui Wang's firefly pendant, you'll be able to spot a Note To Bob underneath a "You Will Be Shot" sign. What wonderful hospitality.

After Joel tells Ellie to do all the talking with Bill, you'll drop down to the ground with the help of a ladder. Go under the trap and turn left. You'll enter a white door that's underneath a wooden balcony. Ellie says Joel is crazy when he enters inside. Go up the stairs, and take the first left while you're on the second floor. Eliminate the clicker that tries to jump you. After you've dealt with it, go through the room and you'll see writing asking for Rachel to look at a note.

Thankfully, the next artifact is in a nearby room. Turn 180 degrees, and you'll see a doorway that has a darts board next to it. You'll find a Fences Note on the coffee table. You may need your flashlight/torch to find it as it's in a dark room.

After telling Bill you've found everything you need in the bar,  you'll reach the second floor of the building. Turn right after the staircase into a more well-lit room from the windows. You'll see a chair sideways on the floor and a bed by the door. On the table where the chair has fallen, you'll see a Hunters Note.

The last artifact that can be found in this chapter is within the house where Ellie finds a car at the end of the level. Go back inside the house after a cutscene plays and go into the living room. Continue forwards past the couches into a bedroom. On the left of the bed is a white table with a lamp on it. The Note from Frank is laying on it.

Pass the note to Bill to activate an optional conversation. After he reads it, he’ll throw it down to the ground, upset at what he just learned. Instead of going to the back of the car, pick up the paper on the right-hand side of the vehicle. This is the last artifact you’ll need to find, and it will activate the In Memorium trophy.

The last two optional conversations occur when Ellie finds a car within a house. For the first optional conversation, speak to Ellie while she’s in the driver's seat.

After finding the first safe by the Concord Eatery on Main, keep running up the road until you see an RV that collided with a police car. Jump on top of the RV and collect Hui Wang's firefly pendant on the right side.

The last firefly pendant is found after taking out a bunch of clickers in the graveyard. Enter through the gate that Bill kindly opens for us and hide behind the green bin on the left. We recommend taking out the clickers on the path ahead with a Molotov cocktail. There are a few more in the front garden to the left. Try to dispatch them as stealthily as possible to maintain your ammo.

Now, go inside the red house and find a small bathroom with a blue rug. On the left of the toilet, you'll be able to pick up Mroznik's firefly pendant.
