In the clip, Joel visibly has low health, possibly “fatal” and decides to take on a Hunter. And to everyone’s surprise, the Hunter reacts before the player lands a blow on his head from behind in what u/Macsilver terms as a “counter,” essentially meaning a counter to Joel’s attack. The Hunter then grabs the head of Joel and smashes it on the pavement-like structure made out of concrete; killing him within seconds.

The community’s response

This special execution probably is a combined effort of the critical health, game difficulty mode, and the timing. As per the Reddit user, Joel was had extremely low health playing in “Survivor” mode that might have increased the chance of the Hunter performing a fatal counter. Or at least that’s what the community thinks.
