Firefly from The Last of Us

Fireflies from The Last of Us

The Fireflies are a paramilitary group of antagonistic rebels in The Last of Us and its sequel. They fought against military control in quarantine zones and sought a cure to CBI on their own. Though they are more organized than other rebel groups, their uniforms do vary from person to person based on what they can get their hands on. Every member, however, has the Firefly symbol somewhere on their gear.

There are two sets of paramilitary clothes pictured above. One is more of a woodland set while the other would be good in urban or snowy climates where cooler colors would blend in well. Both sets can be turned into Firefly gear through the use a Firefly patch on the clothing, decal on the gear, or dog tag added to the outfit.
