In the second series, The Last of Us encountered significant problems after the departure of Bruce Straley as the initial developer. Although replaced by Anthony Newman and Kurt Margenaum, this game is still called the best by PlayStation 4.
If in the first series, Joel is the main character who then goes through a transition to Ellie. The Last of Us 2, released in June 2020, will focus on controlling Ellie and making Joel a supporting player, who will play in some situations.
Taking the background five years later after The First of Us first, this game made by Naughty Dog can rely on stealth kill, following the game tips for victory.
Game Tips and Stealth Kill Advantages
There have been many attacks for Ellie on her journey. Long-range group attacks with sniper or zombie mass attacks at close range. Strategy to fight by killing also has some ways; stealth kills one of them.
1. Save Ammo
The best thing about stealth kill is saving ammunition, not with all situations, but attacks that allow close range. This strategy minimizes counter-attacks because the enemy sees them.
Ammunition can be stored for heavier battles or sudden attacks rather than reckless fire. Using a dagger is not the same as a bullet that is limited to each attack.
2. Easy to kill
Stealth Kill needs a mature strategy to avoid battle. That’s because you have to get rid of enemies one by one before getting caught. This killing tends to be easy and fast.
Press the button to catch through the back, then kill with a dagger or bare hand. The enemy will die instantly and can continue the attack further.
Stealth Kill Tips
Stealth killing must be useful because it is very likely that hiding will be revealed. Be careful not to kill right in front of other enemies who see you. For that, here are some tips on stealth kill.
1. See Enemies with Listening Mode
Before entering the room, hold R1 to enter the listening mode. This serves to detect the presence of enemies. Also, in this mode, enemies will be seen moving with white shadows behind walls or obstructions.
Position and sound will help you see the number of enemies and determine the next attack strategy.
2. Sneak Behind Enemies by Crawling
If some players choose to squat, this is not effective enough because it is slow. Pressing L1 to run is also very risky getting caught. Approach by pressing the crouch button so that it creeps in and approaches from behind. This method triggers a sudden attack on the enemy without resistance.
3. Hide behind objects
This method is relatively common, in addition to protecting yourself from attacks, hiding behind cars, walls, buildings, or large enough objects is very useful in stealth kill.
4. Target an enemy that moves first
Usually, several enemies are in one or two points. If you are confused about starting an attack, watch the movement first. In some cases, enemies infected after the battle will remain silent.
Target the final attack on the silent enemy. Those who move, it is better to attack first, this will make it easier for you to finish off the remaining enemies. Regulate movement, and fast attacks are needed.
5. Look for Movement Patterns
Pay attention to enemy movement patterns. Another thing that is rarely noticed when launching a stealth kill is watching before killing. Most enemies will move to follow the pattern.
If you already know the pattern, it is easy to determine the best time to attack through the game tips above. The distance between enemies also influences and avoids the position to be seen.
