On this spoiler-free page of our guide to The Last of Us 2 you can find a list of all secrets available in The Shortcut stage. It's one of the levels included in the Seattle Day 2 chapter. However, keep in mind that it's a chapter concerning the Abby character. In this mission you visit many islets and hard-to-reach places. Unfortunately, this makes it extremely easy to miss a secret or collectible.

List of collectibles available in The Shortcut stage
There are 11 secrets that can be found in The Shortcut level, namely:
- 6 artifacts
- 2 coins
- 2 workbenches
- 1 safe
It is an artifact and has been in Abby's inventory since the beginning of the mission, as she receives it during a cut-scene preceding the level.
Coin - Nevada
This secret can be found soon after the stage begins. Abby and Lev must reach the area shown in the above picture.
On the left you will find Franklin's Barber Shop. The coin is on the counter next to the till.
It's an artifact. It is necessary to get to the point shown in the picture, where Abby must jump to consecutive concrete slabs and avoid falling into a violent river (the current would carry her away which would lead to her death). Successful jumps will allow you to reach the interior of the building visible in the distance.
Climb the stairs to get to the upper floor of the building. The document is in one of the rooms.
It's an artifact. Reach the spot in the picture, where Abby can make a jump towards the damaged balcony of an apartment building. Break down the balcony door and get inside apartment 302.
The document is on a table next to a whiteboard which contains a drawing of flats. The content of the acquired note contains a hint to determine the code required to open a safe.
The safe is located inside apartment 302, in which you found the note described earlier. The safe's code is 30-23-04.
It's an artifact. You can obtain it soon after you get out of the building where a group of infected was wandering. Once you reach the location shown in the screenshot, start making more jumps to get inside the Interbay building.
You'll find the document near a corpse.
A workbench table is also located inside the Interbay building, in which you have found the collectible described above.
Coin - Colorado
Right after leaving the Interbay building, where you could find the 2 secrets described above, you have to make some jumps on the ledges above the river. They'll allow you to get inside the blue Westport Optix building.
Just after entering the building, turn right and use the blue canopy exit shown in the picture.
The coin lies at the very end of the blue canopy.
It is an artifact and you can find it during a long climb, which involves, among other things, using the ladder shown in the picture.
Not long after using the ladder, you will reach office 808 of a ruined building. The document lies on one of the desks, next to two display monitors and a computer keyboard.
The second workbench table in this mission can be found shortly after the battle with the cultists on one of the upper floors of the skyscraper. After defeating all enemies, Abby will have to use the ladder shown in the picture.
You will reach the location where the altar is located. Look around the area to find the workbench.
It's an artifact. You may find it shortly after using the elevator shown in the picture, which allows you to reach the top floors of the skyscraper.
The desired document was nailed to one of the walls. You'll find it when you get out of the elevator.
