Last of Us Part II: How to open the break room door

A love note

Now that The Last of Us Part II is finally out, folks are diving in and might run across a puzzle or two that stumps them.

So, we decided to make a set of spoiler-free guides. Read on for the break room door solution!

Upon entering the underground break room on Day 2, you’ll encounter a very intimate puzzle on multiple levels.

Intertwined with a playful game between a couple, the first letter on the desk at the back of the room hints that someone should “get a drink.”

Look directly over to the left of you at the “Special Cola” machine, and either shoot it or break it open with a melee attack. Grab the soda can for the next note/part of the puzzle.

That soda can makes things really easy. Head over to the door and input 1, 5, 2. After that, since the door eliminates those numbers, there are only two possible combinations: 1, 5, 2, 3, 4 or 1, 5, 2, 4, 3. Go with the latter to access the break room!
