Pills

Container with 5 pills

Supplements are items in the form of plants and pills in medication bottles that can be collected in The Last of Us single-player campaign by scavenging. They can be used by Joel to upgrade any of his 6 skills.

OverviewEdit

In single player, Joel can find supplements throughout most of the game. The pickups are small bottles or potted flowers(purple). These are worth 5, while bigger bottles or potted flowers are worth 10. Shiv doors always contain at least 1 supplement in the bottle form. 

Supplements allow the player to upgrade any of Joel's 6 different skills: Maximum health, listen mode distance, crafting speed, healing speed, weapon sway and shiv master. Shiv Master upgrades are available on Easy difficulty and can't be purchased while playing on the setting. Upgrading Listen Mode Distance is disabled on Survivor difficulty.

Supplements locations and quantities, like parts, do not vary between different difficulty settings. There are a total of 800 supplements that need to be collected in order to fully upgrade all of Joel's skills. While this cannot be done in a single play through, players can start a new game of the same difficulty with New Game +, and find the remaining supplements previously missed. Any supplements a player didn't use will already be in Joel's inventory as soon as they pickup his backpack upon the startof a New Game +.
