Ah, the Rat King, a creature that haunts even the bravest of souls. Its unique abilities, derived from multiple forms, pose a deadly threat. This boss fight is a true test of your mettle, but fear not, for victory is within your grasp. Before facing this grotesque monstrosity, ensure that your supplies are well-stocked. Ammunition, healing items, and throwable objects shall be your lifeline in this desperate struggle. But remember, my friend, strategy is the key that shall unlock the door to triumph.
To vanquish the Rat King, employ a brilliant strategy—one that utilizes the environment to create space between Abby and her nightmarish adversary. The Rat King yearns to grasp Abby, for its touch means instant death. Hence, you must maintain distance at all costs. The creature possesses the speed of a Clicker and the strength of a Bloater, ceaselessly pursuing you with unyielding determination.
Take solace in the walls and obstacles that impede the Rat King's progress. As you pummel this abomination with all your might, these barriers shall slow its advance. But do not be deceived, my courageous companion, for a mere couple of small blockades shan't hinder this beast too greatly. It may take a few attempts to discern the most effective obstacles in slowing down the Rat King's relentless pursuit.
Behold, the Rat King's weakness! It can break through walls, unwittingly providing Abby an opportunity to escape. While the creature momentarily falters, seize the chance to unleash a torrent of damage upon its grotesque form, wielding your most potent weapons. Pipe Bombs and the Flamethrower shall be your allies in this battle, their destructive power wreaking havoc upon the undead. Scavenge for ammo, alcohol, canisters, and even explosives as you evade the boss, ensuring you are well-equipped for each fleeting opportunity to strike.
And lo, a momentous occasion unfolds—a Stalker separates from the Rat King, stalking Abby with sinister intent. Focus your attention on this new threat, my valiant adventurer. The remaining half of the Rat King transforms into a Bloater, a formidable adversary in its own right. Keep your distance, pummeling it with Shotgun blasts, bombs, and flames whenever possible. Beware the Stalker, my friend, but fret not, for its presence can be dealt with using tactics akin to those employed against a Shambler zombie.
Should time be on your side, indulge in the art of crafting. Utilize the parts scattered throughout the hospital to fashion an array of weaponry, ammunition, and tools. Adaptability is key, and a well-prepared arsenal can turn the tide in your favor against the Rat King.
As the Bloater succumbs to your relentless assault, make your way to the exit, for one final encounter with the Stalker awaits. Armed with a Double Barrel Shotgun loaded with Incendiary Shells, unleash a torrent of fiery destruction upon this last remaining zombie, bringing an end to this nightmarish battle. There are no shortcuts to victory, my brave comrade, but with the right plan and unwavering determination, you shall emerge triumphant from one of the longest and most grueling fights in the game.
And so, we bid farewell to the Rat King, a testament to the harrowing challenges of The Last of Us Part 2.
