The Last of Us Part 2 Rat King

Those who come face to face with the Rat King boss will find that the creature they must fight is a combination of different kinds of infected that they have fought before that have combined into one terrifying monster. Now, players will find that in the fight against the Rat King boss that this monster can kill Abby in one attack. Your best bet is to keep as much distance as possible between Abby and the monster while using ranged weapons and throwable items like a Molotov. 

This boss is somewhat quick for its size, so do your best is to not stay in one location for too long and be greedy with dishing out damage. Inflict as much damage as you can for a couple of seconds and then move to a new area where you can continue this process while dodging any attacks the Rat King is throwing at you.
