This weapon retains the instant-kill backstab ability of the Knife, but with some tweaks. Upon a successful backstab, the Spy instantaneously disguises as the target without the puffs of smoke that usually surround a disguising Spy. Furthermore, the victim does not scream upon death, nor does a death notice appear in the enemy team's kill feed. Also, the corpse of the victim fades away almost instantly as if cloaking (unless that user has the Bombinomicon equipped, then there is the exploding death effect with no fade). Finally, the Spy does not use any voice responses, including lines for dominations, on a successful backstab to prevent drawing unnecessary attention. The process is so quick and unnoticeable that the Spy is never revealed between disguises. Therefore, Sentry Guns are unable to target the Spy between backstabs, making it easier to backstab unaware Engineers and sap their buildings. Upon backstabbing someone who is being healed by a Medic, the healing beam is automatically transfered to the Spy. The player still retains the ability to change and reload their disguise weapon, as with the Disguise Kit. Altogether, backstabs become much more difficult to track, as victims disappear silently with the Spy instantly taking their place in battle.
However, the disguise effect is not activated if the target does not die from the backstab; namely, if the target is wearing a Razorback or is invulnerable. Non-backstab kills achieved do not grant the Spy the victim's disguise and the kill appears in the killfeed, but the kill is still silent and the corpse of the victim disappears.
Non-backstab disguises cost an entire Cloak meter (outside of spawn) and can only be done if the Cloak meter is full and if the user is not cloaking, while disguises from backstabs consume no Cloak at all. The Cloak drain rate is also increased by 33%. This penalty affects the Dead Ringer to a lesser degree due to its innate cloak duration bonus. If L'Etranger is equipped, the drain penalty is nullified and the cloak duration bonus of L'Etranger is halved.
If the player backstabs an enemy Spy who is currently disguised as a member of the player's team, the player does not receive the disguise of the player's own team member, and instead disguises as the enemy Spy.

Fast-forward to a few weeks ago, when a friend invited me to play a game of Diplomacy on a website called Backstabbr. I accepted, thinking it might be a fun way to pass the time during isolation. Little did I suspect that it would transform Diplomacy in my eyes and cement it as one of my absolute favourite board games.
Delve into randomly generated ring dungeons where encounters come to you!Observe and plan your route. Will you go for the loot or backstab a creeping horror? As you scavenge, fight and sneak to new encounters, the ring reacts to your actions.
Just head over to Epic Games Store or navigate to the game in the Epic launcher before September 1st 2022, add the game to your cart and checkout. Simple as that. After that, the game is yours to keep, and play, forever.
The gameplay in BackStab HD feels very much like Assassin's Creed, though the well-scripted action has a very Pirates of the Caribbean feel to it. There's plenty of variety in terms of the missions and scenarios to keep your interest.
The 3D graphics in BackStab HD are excellent, and like most Gameloft games, have a very PS2 feel to them. Rays of light, burning buildings, reflections in water all help to give BackStab HD a solid and tangible feel.
Below you will find the full list of Boons available in the game, as well as their stats changes depending on rarity, ranging across Common, Rare, Epic, and Heroic. Bear in mind that some % upgrades/multipliers are always displayed different depending on how much damage you're causing during a run, for example, and we consulted with Gamepedia for some of these values.
Being able to wield a weapon with both hands is a core combat feature of just about every FromSoftware RPG. In Elden Ring just about every melee weapon can be one-handed, leaving the other hand free for items, shields, or abilities. When defense isn't your main concern, or when you want to use an Ash of War skill, two-handing weapons is typically the way to go.
Because Elden Ring adds so many new combat mechanics, like stealth and the ability to jump, the button layout had to be changed to suit the more varied playstyle. In previous FromSoftware games, players needed only to press the Y button on an Xbox controller, or the Triangle button on a Playstation controller, to wield their right-handed weapon in both hands.
You cannot backstab in Nioh 2 when you start the game. You need to buy a certain skill that you do not have access to. This skill is in the Ninja skill tree and is called Sneak Attack. It costs one Ninja skill point.

Elex II has a good initial progression of quests taking you through the introduction of the game where you come across your wife Caja and son Dex, but then you are left to your own devices. To start the truce talks, we first must visit the locations of the other factions. The first three factions, Berserkers, Albs and Morkons, can be joined from the start of the game. The other two, Outlaws and Clerics, require you to be level 20 and have joined either the Morkons for Clerics or Albs for Outlaws. The Berserkers are magic users and have spells like fireball, mana shield and fire fist. The Albs forgo magic and utilise the power of the titular Elex crystals for skills like chain lightning, ice fist and a self-heal, while the Morkons excel at melee combat and self-buffs like speed, health regen and less damage from attacks.
The game retains so much of what made it great in the first place, and makes a number of small improvements without diluting the deliciously dirty experience of this highly interactive tactical puzzle of a game.
Arya's specialty is backstabbing enemies. She does increased damage whenever she hits someone's back. She can force this with her down special, which buffs her and the partner to disorient with the next attack; Arya's will be a backstab automatically. This will also break armor. It's also easy to get backstabs with the down attack, which makes her do a quick roll and slash.
His special is an ice breath that needs to hit 15 stacks to freeze the opponent. Velma also has a freezing attack, so the two can synergize like that. The ice breath also extinguishes flames and can neutralize some enemy projectiles, while empowering those of your ally, making them add to the freeze stack.
Lies of P has the usual Dark Souls controls so players familiar with that series or Elden Ring should feel right at home. I see a lot of comparisons to Bloodborne online, but from my limited experience with both games, it feels like a different beast, having only the similar Belle Epoque / Old-London-like environments in common.
From the very first moments of the demo, I was deeply impressed with the visual quality of the game. The screenshots or the video may not reflect this, because I had limited recording options available, but the lighting, the models, and the triggered moments like the derailing monorail from the image above really made my eyes that extra bit watery from sheer wonder.
"The weapon's standard damage damage is multipled by the value givenon Table 30, THEN strength and magical weapon bonuses are added." This is reasonable, perhaps, but far too restrictive. Backstabbingis supposed to be a thief's most feared attack, yet it comes down toalmost no advantage over a fighter's frontal attack. Consider: at low level, a 3rd level thief with a dagger: barelymakes his move silent roll, and stabs his victim in the back. An averagedamage of 2.5 * 2 of 5 points of damage. A 3rd level warrior, with 17 strength and a long sword, does 4.5 +1, of 5.5 points of damage. The only advantage of the thief is his +3 to hit over the fighter, andhe can only backstab once. Consider: Altob the Assassin, a fearsome 19th level thief, with a +4defender dagger and 16 strength, using all of the +4 for attack, sneaksup behind his victim, silent as the night, and stabs him in the back: The average damage is 2.5 * 5 + 1(str) + 4(dagger) = 17.5. Meanwhile, our Bog the bully fighter, 17th level warrior, specializedwith his +4 broadsword, 18/93 strength as befits a high level warrior(or maybegauntlets or items of strength), does 5 + 4(sword) + 5(str) + 2(specialize) =16 points of damage. Even with Altob's specialization, he is only a bit ahead in damage, andthe to-hit worse. Bog will completely erase that advantage, as the fight goes on, since he does 16 average every strike, and multiple strikes ina round. This forces thieves to use fighter weapons to have a chance, but where'sthe traditional stab-in-the-back scenario with a keen knife? Daggers,knives, and other thieving weapons are out of the picture. Some DMs furtherimpose the restriction that backstabbing can be only done with a one-handedpiercing weapon. Certainly one can't backstab with a two-handed sword,of course. To be fair, magical bonuses or strength bonuses should be added beforethe multiplier, or the thief, the weakest of the four classes, gets even weaker.-- l2w...@napier.waterloo.eduoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooME: Univ. of Waterloo YOU: Huh? o=> ME: in Canada, YOU: Huh?ME: in Ontario, YOU: Huh? /o/ ME: up north!
