Types of Infected


Runners - Killing Runners 2.jpg

Runners are the most common enemy in The Last of Us 2, and the first stage of the infected. They are fairly weak and quick to deal with but, are almost always in groups, or are along side later stage infected, like Clickers and Shamblers.

Stalkers - Banner 1.jpg

Stalkers are the next stage of infected after runners. They tend to ambush the player and stay hidden. Stalkers won't one-shot you like Clickers, would but they are a bit tougher to kill than regular runners, and will attempt to retreat after attacking. They are also hard to spot in Listen Mode.

Clickers are completely blind, thus there is no need to worry about being spotted by sight. However, they have better hearing, meaning that you need to push the movment stick lightly or else a Clicker might hear you. Clickers are also tougher than runners, can't be meleed without being stunned, and can one-shot the player, making ranged attacks necessary.

Bloaters - Banner 1.jpg

Bloaters are a late stage of infected, are extremly dangerous and can take a lot of damage. They also throw acid bombs at the player that will leave a acid cloud that will damge the player over time.

    • I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
