I’ve just reached Level 48 and I wanted to give a lot of tips that I wish I knew when I started.
Stunning people face-to-face never works unless they are no where near their controller. It’s best to run away, use an ability or hope they are aiming for the person next to you. Hit them from the side or behind.
A counter happens when you press the directional stick towards the player and press the X button. You will get the kill as long as you press it within a second of the enemy pressing B, you will get the kill.
Most counters do not show for the killer, only for the defender.
Mute is a good tool, as long as you use it correctly. It won’t mute if they are on a different plane (if you’re on a roof and they’re slightly lower or higher) or such it will not work. You also have to use it earlier than you’d originally suspect.
I’ll add more tips as I think of them.
