10/ 24/ 10- Assassination tips #2 - Sneaking tips, Dos and don'ts. Do's
The Cover of night- Darkness is your friend, and as your friend it wants you to stay hidden from your targets. Sunlight however is a fickle b***h that likes to tell everyone in seeing distance where you are. The cover of night is always a do, unless your target is a vampire.. But that is a whole other section...
Soft shoes- While combat boots look cool, they are NOT good stealth shoes. Steel toes to not a sneaky assassin make. Keep yourself to sneakers, ( Come on they have SNEAK in the name) and elderly people slippers ( the sorrow of being left in a home by your loved ones seems to add a certain determined shuffle to them. ) for best results.
Deodorant- I cannot stress the importance of personal hygiene enough. Many times have I seen an aspiring young assassin on his way to a successful kill only to have is pungent body oder whisked strait to the nostrils of a previously unsuspecting victim. Deodorant, as well as a good personal hygiene regimen can keep you from being caught in a stinky situation.
Theme songs - You may think it is super cool to rock out to Whatever hellscreaming yahoo it is you like to damage your hearing with while on the hunt for your target, but for stealth sake, keep your rocking to a minimum. Not only will your loud rocking alert your target to your presence, it also factors in the chances of you actually hearing said target as he cocks the gun behind your head.
Loose clothing - It has come to my attention that baggy pants and big poofy shirts are a current fashion. It is important that should you decide to wear these , you do not do so on a mission. These loose cloths can be a hazard to you and your team. Whether they should catch a tree branch and leave you not only tangled, but most likely now pantsless in front of your target who will most likely laugh at your misfortune just before killing you in a violent fashion.
That and the rising number of those giant snapping Baboons that kill people with poofy shirts is a constant danger. Don't put yourself at risk.
Fireworks- Now believe it or not I have seen new recruits us fireworks to celebrate a kill.
Not only is this in poor taste, but it flags your position as an obvious target for retaliation.
Which is a almost immediate reaction from my experience, immediate and very, very messy.
Use these tips to increase the likelihood of completing your mission, and decrease the chance you'll end up a bloody mess on the floor that ruins some poor janitors morning.
