The Last of Us patch 1.08 features new weapons, missions, bug fixes and more

Naughty Dog announced earlier that a new patch will start rolling out for The Last of Us in the next 24 hours. The patch brings with it the usual assortment of bug fixes and balance changes for multiplayer along with new scoped weapons and new missions. Pretty much all the balance changes revolve around the Hunting Rifle, which now does 70 damage instead of 55 and has a visually different scope upgrade at level 2. These changes and additions will arrive via patch 1.08 only for the PS3 version of The Last of Us , but if you’re playing on the PS4 don’t worry because the Remastered version will also receive a live update during this time. Below you will find the list of changes coming to both the PS3 and PS4 versions of The Last of Us.

New Missions: All new weapons have their own missions

New Weapons:

  • Variable Rifle: Fast and accurate rifle that downs in four shots. Press x while aiming to use the variable scope zoom!
  • Scoped Semi-Auto: Scoped version of the Semi-Auto Rifle.
  • Scoped Full-Auto: Scoped version of the Full-Auto Rifle
  • Scoped Burst Rifle: Scoped version of the Burst Rifle.

Updated Pre-set Loadouts:


The weapon balance changes, team balance changes and bug fixes have already been included in The Last of Us Remastered so they will only be arriving on the PS3 now. Naughty Dog also announced that the free maps will be coming out later this week along with some more fixes for the PS4 version.
