Tips and tricks

A list of simple but useful tips and tricks.

  • Be Patient.
  • Sprint less, keep your stamina above 50%. This will mean you play slower and be able to hear enemies more often.
  • Hear a player? Stop to listen and observe.
  • You can kill Striders in a single Melee strike. Sneak up to them and stab them to stay silent.
  • Prioritize your Missions, you will earn a lot of K-Marks and Items that way.
  • Only do Jobs you do not have to go out of your way for, otherwise they are not worth it.
  • Bring a Smoke Grenade for a safer Evac.
  • Hold a Melee weapon, or a Tool, Pistol, SMG, or the Bulldog to sprint without being slowed down.
  • Weapons of Rare have expensive Ammo which cuts into your K-Marks quickly at the start. Only use those weapons if you can afford the ammo.
