The Last of Us 2 Walkthrough: Training Manuals list and locations

There are tons of useful items to be found in The Last of Us 2, and the training manuals are worth the effort. Finding all eight manuals will unlock the Journeyman Trophy. There are two other manuals that are automatically obtained as part of the story, and cannot be missed.

Note that there are more possible spawning points, so you may find manuals in places not listed in this guide. They are always found in the same order.

Chapter 9: Downtown Seattle - Training Manual 1: Crafting

Go to the broken bridge between 6th and 7th avenue where there's a fire truck. Climb on the military vehicle next to the bridge, you should be able to climb on the fire truck from its roof. Once on the truck, pick up the fire hose and throw it below, in the section with an overturned truck. Use the fire hose as a rope to descend and search the overturned truck, you will find inside the first manual of the game.

Note: this manual can also be found near the court office safe, on a shelf. In this case, there is unfortunately no manual in the truck. There are probably other similar cases later.
