The Last of Us 2 Enemies Have Odd Connection to Star Wars’ General Grievous

Players of The Last Of Us Part 2 discovered a strange glitch that revealed an enemy with an unintentional connection to Star Wars villain General Grievous. While The Last of Us Part 2 does feature infected people of all shapes and sizes, this particular event doesn’t seem to be part of the expected experience.

Over the years, The Last of Us series has had some weird glitches in both games. While Naughty Dog’s games do have a reputation for being heavily polished, there’s always something that slips through the cracks, and the results can actually be hilarious. For example, a glitch in the PC version of The Last of Us turned Bill’s house into an orgy. For some players, it’s sure to pull them out of the experience, but there’s also an undeniable element of humor to it.

Redditor BossHemisphere noticed the strange glitch, and he posted a video online. It starts with players shooting their hands off the dead bodies of enemies. However, they then shot the arm again and another pair of hands popped up, seemingly replicas. This is very odd, and it’s unclear what caused the problem in the game, but it’s certainly similar to General Grievous. Players in the thread pointed out the similarities, with one citing Obi-Wan’s famous line against villains, “Hello.” While other The Last of Us glitches show birds flying out of enemies’ bodies, this one does. There are hands sticking out – it’s hard to decide which is weirder.

Some in the thread compared the level of gore seen in the video to the old Mortal Kombat games, where “people would explode into a pile of bones with multiple ribcages and skulls,” even suggesting it might be an homage. While The Last of Us is no stranger to Easter eggs and tributes, it’s more likely that this particular instance was a simple glitch.

The franchise is currently having a huge moment in the mainstream, for good and bad reasons. The success of the HBO TV adaptation brought the franchise to the attention of even non-gamers, bringing it to a whole new audience in a successful and faithful way. Meanwhile, the disastrous PC port of The Last of Us Part 1 left gamers who had waited more than a decade for the original bittersweet. While Naughty Dog has since released various patches to fix the game, it’s still a pretty bad port, and it may take a huge effort from the developers to get it where it needs to be. How long Naughty Dog will try to save the game remains to be seen.

The Last of Us Part 2 is out now on PS4.
