Below we have mentioned the location of every Shiv Door in the game categorized by the chapters you will encounter them in.

Outskirts

Shiv Door #1
In the mission Outskirts (Downtown), after encountering your very first Clicker in the game, check the very same floor for the first shiv door. It can be located on the left side near a bunch of what seems like vending machines.

Shiv Door #2
The next Shiv door can be located in the chapter Outskirts (Museum). During the part where you get separated from your fellow – in the second area of museum – look for the door on your right by the water dispenser. It is located in the café.

Bill’s Town

Shiv Door #3
It can be found in the chapter Bill’s Town (The Woods). You will encounter a bunch of Clickers in the woods. Take them all out and look for the big, bricked building. On the left of this building is the next Shiv door. For your convenience, it will be a steel door.

Shiv Door #4
The next door can also be found during the chapter Bill’s Town (The Woods). Make your way to the back of a building reading ‘Marquis’ and you will get to the next Shiv door in front of 2-3 wrecked cars. You will have to take 2-3 stairs in order to reach the door.

Pittsburg

Shiv Door #5
This can be found in the chapter Pittsburg (Alone & Forsaken) in the ‘Driver’s Cafe’ area. Make your way to the far right corner of the café and you will get to the next door.

Shiv Door #6
This can also be found in the chapter Pittsburg (Alone & Forsaken). You will have to take the staircase on the backside to escape the bookstore and you will land up in an open area. Clear the area of all the enemies and look to the left with a door with a red ‘X’ marked on it. This is your next Shiv door.

Shiv Door #7
During the Pittsburg (Financial District) chapter, make your way into Credit Union Building and open the door with a small glass panel on it to get to your next Shiv door.

Lakeside Resort

Shiv Door #11
Mission Lakeside Resort (Cabin Resort) has your next Shiv door. Across the gas station will be a building with a rusty truck outside. Make your way into this building and climb the broken bathroom window to get to the next Shiv door on your immediate left.

You don’t have to search for the bathroom. Just go straight and you will get it.

Bus Depot

Shiv Door #12
