  • I liked the depiction of the Military in the previous game, as well as the feeling of authoritarianism that they gave Boston and the other Quarantine Zones they controlled. The World War Z novel-style blue uniforms and riot gear were kinda cool as well.

    I'm not sure if they'll be in Part II, though. That said, Denver is implied to be an operational Quarantine Zone, and I think it is located within a reasonable distance of Jackson County. I think the Fireflies are implied to be returning, and I suppose the Military is an important moral contrast to the Fireflies, as well as the reason for their existence. 

    Like the first game, if they are in Part II, I don't think they'll play an important role in the overall plot; they'd probably just be one-time enemies that are on patrol or something, who would only engage our heroes because they're in the wrong place at the wrong time. Still, I hope they make an appearance!

    What do you guys think? Will they show up?

    • I don't think the Military will have a presence, or at the most much of one, in The Last of Us Part II. For starters, Tommy's Dam is in Jackson County, Wyoming. The Quarantine Zone is in Denver, Colorado. That's at least a few hundred miles.

    • I want the Military to have a presence. Think about, they are looking for supplies and they will go out of cities and into the country. I also want the military to be bigger and stronger but that is very unlikey due to their logistics.

      I have to agree with Zippo here. The nearest "known quarantine" is at Denver.

      The only time the Military leaves the quarantine is:

      1)Supplies

      2)Cleaning up

      3)Patrol

    • Yeah, it's sad because the military were well developed for the short time we saw them. As a sequel, it'd be nice to see the military develop over those years beyond "they've all died out" or "no military round here".

      Hopefully the developers will at least add collectibles filling in some details about them, like more fallen QZs, words on patrols, or more personal accounts like those from Left Behind.

    • Maybe but, if it does, I'll bet it will be a weaker and a lot less 'official' body than it was in the first game. Why? Because the continual fall of Quarrantime Zones and the collapse of the supply network will mean that FEDRA itself and any remaining semblance of 'government' will be closer to extinction.

      Bottom line is that they'll be marginally better-equipped and better-trained hunters, nothing more.

      I don't think the military will be weaker. They have the man power to prove it (Firefiles left Boston because the Military is strong)

      Okay maybe Denver could fall or Chicago or Detroit (if they are still up)

      Yes, they do have the power. The firefiles left Boston because they know it's pretty much impossible and people weren't committed to the firefiles cause. I'm not so sure about the "collapse of the supply network". I'm pretty sure the military always take different routes for sure.

    • You misunderstand. By 'collapse of the supply network' I mean fewer factories, mines and farms producing things that the military needs to keep functioning. No-one making fuel for vehicles; no-one making alloys for guns and ammo; no-one making food in sufficient quantities to support standing armies and cities.

    • Whoops, I thought you meant route. Yes, I do agree with the collapse of the suppy network. I think they have the factories but not the materials to make them. I'm pretty sure everything comes from Atlanta QZ since Its the biggest (20,000 soldiers [take with grain of salt]).

      It makes sense now. In the level, Quarantine Zone, civilians leave the wall with soldiers to collect scrap metal. Then they would send it down to Atlanta so they can make weapons and ammunition (or military vehicles but that's very unlikey). So the quarantine zones rely on each other.
