The Last of Us Part II Gameplay Video Showcases Some Very Weird Clicker Behavior

The Last of Us Part II player encounters a strange situation when they stumble across some Clickers.

A few weeks ago, Naughty Dog fans were glued to their seats as “The Last of Us Day” approached. While many TLOU2 enthusiasts were hoping for some news on the multiplayer aspect of the game and subsequently let down by zero information regarding it, we did get to see some limited-edition collectibles announced that included Joel and Ellie figures, The Last of Us boardgame, soundtracks, and artwork. As many players have begun a second playthrough of the hard-hitting sequel, some strange bugs have been noticed. In this particular video, it seems as though the Clickers have changed up their aggressive and in your face strategy and decided that maybe playing statues would work out better for them.

Reddit user wandnmore uploaded their weird encounter with Clickers as they made their way through the back of the Synagogue for a second time without realizing. As you can see from the video, the clickers are T-posing in a strange glitch. Even as the player walks past them nervously, they don’t move a muscle which must have been a really jarring situation as we all know too well what happens if you’re even within a few feet of one of these mushroom heads. Personally, I think these fungus-infected flesh-eaters are trying out a new tactic, stay as still as you can to confuse the player and once they get close enough, bite their faces off. Or maybe they got bored hanging around the same area time after time and thought a game of statues could pass the time.

Although, there’s always one that doesn’t want to play the game and messes everything up as we see a stray infected get a little impatient and begin to weirdly creep up on wandnmore and then suddenly, the player dies. Thankfully, I haven’t really experienced any bugs in my second playthrough of The Last of Us Part II but since I’m not towards the end yet, there’s always time for some weird shenanigans to go down. Check out Wandnmore’s entire gameplay video embedded below.

If you happened to think you were imagining hearing director/writer Neil Druckmann and co-writer Halley Gross chatting over the radio as two WLF members towards the end of the game with Abby, you weren’t wrong as apparently Druckmann and Gross lent their voices for this particular scene.
