Stealth games have become all the rage, especially as games have evolved over time. This is a gameplay loop that never ceases to be wreaking havoc on the whole, with many modern games incorporating stealth mechanics to make their gameplay more enjoyable and enjoyable.
Getting a stealth attack is almost always one of the most engaging tasks to pull off in any video game. Especially when an enemy is in a group that can detect the player at any time during their stealth activities. Some games understand how important this moment is, and make their stealth attacks much more visceral and fun to trigger. Here are some of the finest games that nail stealth attacks in their games.
10 Stabbing An Orc (Middle-earth: Shadow Of Mordor/War)
Both Shadow of Mordor and its sequel are grotesque games with intense combat. Talion''s stabs and slices through the hordes of orcs in this game never ceases to be tiring.
In this game, there is a blast of stealth, with each stealth kill being fairly brutal. Players may also utilize powers to wreak havoc and kill multiple enemies without making any sound!
In a Predator Encounter, Hunting Down Goons (Batman: Arkham Series)
The Predator encounters in the Batman: Arkham series are the stuff of myths. During these segments, the AI of the enemies is pretty impressive, becoming more and more concerned as Batman slowly hunts all of them down.
It helps that the AIs weapons will easily defeat Batman in a few shots. As a result, Batman must be wary and use everything from perches to vents so that he can knock down opponents without being seen.
8 Using The Hidden Blade (Assassin''s Creed Series)
The Hidden Blade is one of the most iconic weapons used in Assassin''s Creed. The cool way in which players may stab targets without even knowing their weapon is what makes the Hidden Blade so fun to use.
In the most recent Assassin''s Creed films, the depth of this weapon has been reduced. However, the moments when players get access to this weapon are still significant and make each stealth kill even more engaging.
7 Punching Or Stabbing People With Style (Deus Ex: Human Revolution/Mankind Divided)
The prequels to the legendary Deus Ex have been pretty good in their own right. Players aim to roam around huge areas with a great interconnected level design that makes every enemy encounter a breeze to pass.
Players can also use their energy to unleash takedowns (non-lethal or otherwise) that are followed up by a pretty cool cinematic. It never gets tiring, with the act of punching or slicing up enemies feeling pretty engaging almost always.
6 Stabbing Someone Then Throwing A Knife At Another Enemy Right After (Far Cry Series)
The Far Cry series has experienced a significant shift since its third release, which is now considered one of the best games in the series. Especially when it comes to the stealth in these games, the gameplay of the series was dramatic.
The thrill of spotting around and defeating enemies in the game is a thrill, with the player receiving extra rewards for the same! The best stealth kill that players can unlock in the game is actually a bonus, with players being able to follow up one stealth kill with a throwing knife that can hit an enemy in the near vicinity.
5 Backstabbing Enemies (Dark Messiah Of Might And Magic)
The Dark Messiah of Might and Magic is one of the most underrated immersive sims around. As always, fighting around enemies is a blast, and kicking them around into traps or ravines is quite engaging!
In this game, players may adopt a stealth playstyle, which they can backstab their enemies if they equip a pair of powerful daggers. However, the game wasn''t really built with a stealth focus in mind, so certain encounters in the game become really challenging for adversaries who didn''t prioritize build as well.
4 Killing Someone With The Fiber Wire (Hitman Series)
The Fiber Wire is one of the most well-known weapons in a game. Agent 47 is constantly controlling and kidnapping enemies out with this wire, which is almost always fun.
It''s a simple yet brutal way to finish an unidentified enemy or target. It''s fairly visceral to see these victims gasp for air before succumbing to this attack, and it''s evident why the Fiber Wire is such a powerful and powerful weapon.
3 Using Tech Kill Or Distract Enemies (Watch Dogs Series)
Watchdogs is a series that might not have begun on the best note, but which has become quite engaging to play through over the years. Watchdogs 2 was easily the best game of the bunch, addressing many of the issues it faced with its predecessor.
In this game, technology plays an even bigger role. Players can turn everything from drones to cameras to punch enemies off, using well-times hacks to incapacitate enemies without even being in the immediate vicinity!
2 Quietly Taking Enemies Down With Special Powers (Dishonored Series)
The Dishonored games are pretty fantastic stealth-action titles that are a joy to play through. However, the first game did sabotage its own fun factor with some frightening mechanics that altered the game''s ending for the worse if players killed enemies without a attention in the world.
The second game explores the ancient meaning of stealing away enemies, and it offers a slew of amazing abilities that you can have.
One Landing The Perfect Long-Range Kill (Sniper Elite Series)
The Sniper Elite series is mainly known for its cinematic long-range kills that players can easily pull off with a sniper rifle. It''s easy to find a variety of features in the entire game.
It''s a thrill to pull off such long-range shots, as does this series.
