What is the Bloater in Episode 5 of The Last of Us?          

A bloater is in the final stages of the infections for the victims of cordyceps fungus which is destroying the world of The Last of Us. In the bloater stage, the victims are nearly encased in the fungus that starts growing out of the infected head.  

The bloater debuted in the Kansas City episodes in The Last of Us before making multiple appearances throughout the series. Perry’s execution by bloater is tribute to the death animation in the games.
