[top]Tips & Strategies

Grounded + Glitch
Just like in the original game, you can skip playing Grounded and go to Grounded +.
  1. You will need to complete the main game on Survivor + first.
  2. When you are at the Main Menu, choose the option at the top that should say *Continue New Game Plus*. (If you need too, load up a save for NG+ then quit out.) Start on PROLOGUE.
  3. At the end of the PROLOGUE, you will be with Tess, save and quit. Go back to the main menu.
  4. Now chapter select and pick PROLOGUE, but choose GROUNDED.
  5. You should now be on GROUNDED +.
  • To make sure you are on GROUNDED +. Hit start > Options > Game and make sure it says grounded. Then go to Start > Load Game > and wait for the save file to pop up. It should say New Game Plus.
  • Another way to verify, is wait until you are with Tess and get your backpack and gun. Hit and to see if you are upgraded.
If you do not have the option to choose Continue New Game Plus, instead choose Chapter Select, and play the last Chapter, Jackson, on Survivor. Doing this will allow you to start playing on Survivor +


There is no roadmap really needed. You can either complete the game on Grounded and Grounded + or just Grounded +. Do it chapter by chapter and when you beat the game, you get the trophies.

Obviously, you will need to complete all 12 chapters in the game.
This is almost similar to playing on Survivor +, but it's a bit harder and you do have less resources. You also do not have a HUD, so this makes a bit harder to get through things.

  • Using Cover: Anything like short walls or objects can be used to cover you from enemy fire. Press to crouch down behind the object. You can press to aim over the object and just release to drop back down.
  • Stealth Mode: If you can silently sneak up on an enemy from behind, you can press to kill them with stealth.. The enemy will try to break free, but if you press you will strangle them and if you press again you can kill them with a shiv (if you have one on you).
  • Bottles and Bricks: All around the game, you can find bottles and bricks lying around. You can use these to throw at an enemy to either stun them or distract them. You can hit an enemy with them as well like you would a weapon.
  • Crafting: Collect different types of ingredients found all over the place to craft weapons, bombs and health kits. Press select and if you have enough of each item you can craft by holding down
  • Melee Weapons: Any time you come across a melee weapon ( boards, baseball bat, pipes) pick them up. They make your combat attacks much more powerful then just using your fist. Pay attention to the little bars at the bottom though, cause each weapon only has a certain number of hits before you can no longer use it.
  • Distracting Enemies: If there are several enemies around, try throwing a bottle or brick at them. The enemies will head over to the sound of the bottle/brick landing, giving you time to sneak up on them or past them. After throwing though, don't stand to long there as most times they come over to where you are.
  • Items: Anytime you come across crafting items, collect them. They can be on the floor or inside things, so check everything. Every draw, every locker, anything that has a by it. The more you have the better, although you can only hold a certain amount. When you are full on supplies, start crafting to make more room for more items.
  • Health: Always watch your health. Look for items to make health kits or health items. Sometimes when your health is low, Ellie will give you a health kit. Don't let your health get low because when in a fight, you won't have time to heal. Enemies can attack you while you are using a health kit.
When playing as Ellie
  • Using David: When either a runner or a clicker has David, you can run up behind them and knife them. This will be a one hit kill.
  • Conserve Ammo: Try and conserve your ammo. Throw either a bottle or a brick at an infected then rush in to one hit kill them with your knife.
  • Crafting: There are some areas that will be some what hard. Collect crafting items as you see them to craft things such as the Molotov cocktail and nail bomb.
  • Weapons: It is sometimes likely that you will find a shotgun or handgun on a dead enemy. Collect these if you do find them as they will make things a bit easier. You will also have your bow on you.
