New Infected and Enemies

New Infected

The first Last of Us game had four types of Infected: Runners, Stalkers, Clickers, and Bloaters. The Last of Us Part 2 has made a few changes to the types of Infected.

There will be two factions in the game, which are fighting for control over areas and resources. The more militarized “Washington Liberation Front”, also known as “WLF”, who are armed with equipment stolen from the military, and the Religious “Seraphites”, also known as “Scars” because of the self inflicted scars on their faces.

Guard Dogs


The WLF also has trained dog companions that can smell out your scent trail to get to you! When you kill one of these dogs, and the owner find it, your cover will be blown, so you need to be careful of the smart AI!

    • 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.
