Different Takedowns

#1 Posted by ShalashaskaUK666 (506 posts) -

Did you know you can do takedowns on dudes sittin in chairs? I accidentally pressed B and choked th crap outta some office worker by mistake!!  
It just got me thinking are there any other contexts where you can do takedowns that arent directly behind people standing up? 
  
Share 'em! :D

In front of people

Well, this is kinda obvious, but you can do takedowns on people from the front, too.

Edit: Yeah, what Pie said.

If you hold the button, he totally stabs them! I bet you didn't know that! Wait, you did? Well, uh...

DUUUUUDE I'm totally gonna stab a dude............FROM THE FRONT *runs*

My favorite one is where he grabs both heads and slams them on the grounds, then stabs them in the back.

@Xolare: Hell yeah, 10x more satisfying than dual hidden blades in Assassin's Creed 2. I actually think the non-lethal takedowns are way cooler than the lethal ones. I love being a bio-mechanical Bruce Lee.

Do a lethal Davis: (hold down the takedown button up front)
 
"Uh! uh! uh! uh!"

The best takedown I've seen if the one where he grabs the dude by the head, flips the dude around, and then spins his crazy robot hand and it spins the dudes head around, killing him. I laughed pretty hard the first time I saw that one.

My favorite is probably the one where he hurts them.

@Weltal: Is that a lethal takedown? Cause I haven't seen it but that might be because I'm playing pacifist
#13 Posted by shadowboxer (19 posts) -

Favorite takedown involves a stab to the inner thigh. If you get it from the right angle it seems like he stabbing the guy in the  'balls'.   Its a lethal takedown from the front.

LMFAO.

Did you know you can do takedowns from the side too? Even diagonally!

#15 Posted by Weltal (2268 posts) -

@SPACETURTLE: Oh yes, it's, like, all the way lethal. It's about as lethal as you can get without the head simply coming off when he does it.

@ShalashaskaUK666:  My favorite take down is the real simple one. The one where he taps the guy on the shoulder and the guard looks and Adam just knocks the shit out of them. I love seeing that one every time.
#17 Posted by Tennmuerti (7726 posts) -

@SPACETURTLE: Yea, it's lethal, you're breaking the dudes neck :)

#18 Posted by Dayewalker (77 posts) -

I've been leaning more towards the pacifist side of things so far, but after reading all these responses to this thread I may have to check out some of the lethal takedowns. I've already killed people so I know I'm not getting the trophy for no kills, so I may as well have fun I guess.

The Icarus landing system will kill a dude if landed directly on top of him.

Yes! It's so simple but so brutal. I love how far the guy flies, too. The non-lethal takedowns are fantastic.
#22 Posted by MooseyMcMan (9793 posts) -

I was a little disappointed when I tried to do a takedown of two guys who were both sitting down (and within double takedown range), but I could only get one of them at a time. I spent two praxis points for that?! (Good thing I waited until I had all the stuff I really wanted).

Double back handed slap wins every time.

Because it needed to be posted.

#25 Posted by yinstarrunner (1171 posts) -

It bums me out you can't do a dual takedown if one of your targets is sitting down. There was a few times when that would have come in handy.

The best takedown I saw was when I was just screwing around in Detroit. Jensen picked up a woman, held her sideways, then the guy next to her turned around to face him, and totally just STOOD there as Adam sauntered over with lady in arms, pushed her onto him so that they were both on the ground, then put one armblade clean through them both. I was laughing my Ass off.

#26 Posted by misterhaan (227 posts) -

the non-lifting head-knocking double takedown where he backhands them both with one swipe is pretty great too

#27 Posted by Legend (2599 posts) -

If you have the break through walls aug, you can takedown a guard that is standing directly behind the wall when you break it. That's just badass. :)

#28 Posted by jaymorgoth (242 posts) -

I really like the non-lethat where he breaks the guys arm then knocks them out with a punch to the back of the head. It's just so casual and breaking the arm in like two places seems so unnecessary.

There is a part in the game when you are sneaking in the building walls and a guard standing next to a breakable wall remarks to his buddy: "What do you think he'll just break through the wall and get me?" or something to that effect in an dismissive manner :)

Yeah, I love that one. It's even better if there's a wall behind him and he slams into it after the turn.

I like pulling off Sam Fisher style stealth take downs, where your hugging the wall, and as the enemy comes by you just tap the button and he takes that fucker down.

Just grab that shotgun and shoot everything in the face!

I had an early start, plus being an incredible font of knowledge helps :D

You have the Wiki notoriety and credit anyway! (and i'm not into that stuff)

#37 Posted by ShaneDev (1696 posts) -

I didn't like it that when punching through a wall Jensen snaps the neck of whoever was standing behind it. Unless I am missing something I thought it was a bit shit that I couldn't non lethally take them down. 
 
I tried to take down people sitting in chairs but it didn't work for some reason. I thought then that it wouldn't work ever so never did it again. 

#38 Posted by KillyDarko (1888 posts) -

I'm playing non-lethal, so the best takedown I've seen so far is probably the one where he uses one dude as a shield to protect himself from the other dude's punch and then when the first guy goes down cause of the second, he knocks the second out.
Damn, that was convoluted. Sorry guys ^^

#39 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6077 posts) -
@Tennmuerti: Yeah, i guess, plus i can always blame Killjoi for the grammatical errors and bad parts :P

Hey, where did you come from? I was right after Tennmuerti =/
 
Anyway, is the backflip from the trailer featured in the game? Also, is it lethal or nonlethal?
#41 Posted by Patman99 (1545 posts) -

I like knocking guys unconscious and then hiding their bodies in a vent... When that son of a bitch wakes up, he wont know what the hell just happened. But as for my favorite take down, it has to be the lethal one where he grabs them by the head and then twists the guy a couple of times... That has to be a terrible way to die.

#42 Edited by Zaccheus (1770 posts) -

My favorite is the dual takedown where he lifts up one guy throws him at the other guy and then stabs through both of them on the ground. It's just funny to see them in a pile afterwards. I haven't seen many of the non-leathal once since I just murdered everyone.

I'd say your neck snapping is probably a pretty painless way to die. It would be just a millisecond and you couldn't feel any pain due to your nervous system being disconnected from your brain, so to speak.

The CG trailer? If i think you mean the one i'm thinking about then the back flip is the only one in that chain that's not in the game. The other 3 are tho.
