As you leave, you’ll see a tree up ahead. Look up, and you’ll find the second Firefly Pendant hanging on one of its branches.

As you’re going through the dorm rooms, trying to get the door open and get to Ellie, that’s when you can get it.

You’ll find out that you’ll have to kill a few Clickers and a Bloater to progress through the story. That’s where the hardest part is. The Firefly Pendant isn’t located on the floor or any piece of furniture but on the Bloater’s body. Your strategy should be first to get rid of all of the Clickers roaming in the area. Because fighting with all of them at once with the Bloater will make things much harder.

Once you’re done with the Clickers, you need to equip the shotgun and aim for the Bloater’s head. It will take several hits before you can finally kill it, so be patient.

Once you’ve killed the Bloater, approach its dead body. The Firefly Pendant should be located near the body.
