For my next video I wanna show some good teamwork gameplay in manhunt, both offensive and defensive. I will need 3 players from this site so it will be easier to discuss strats here. We can practice it loads, and il record stuff that i think is really good. If you are interested, tell me your PSN and level so I can figure out our ability setups. Oh and please dont be one of those players who just says yeah mean idea but never actually shows up, happens all the time.

Here is my basic idea of a 4 man attack strategy. The aim is to maximize points off each kill, so some players probably wont score so well. My goal is to get a really high overall team score, so I myself might sit back and do some of the teamplay work and score low myself. Im pretty sure a lot of teams use a similar setup to this but I have made some mods on it myself

Basically the team is split into two squads, spotters and attackers.

The spotters set up is Templar Vision and Throwing knives. These guys go on the rooftops and pick out the targets within the groups, and lock on to different targets. If any of them bolt, they can use throwing knives to slow them down for the attackers, who simply have to walk up and stab them for low profile kills. However I would prefer it if they kept out of site while using templar vision, but most of the time you arent noticed on the rooftops if they dont look up.

Attackers: Once both the attackers get close to the groups, one of them will quickly charge in and use mute and smoke bomb at the same time. He may start a chase, but this wont matter because he wont be doing the killing.
This should completely immobilize them. The other attacker simply strolls in and waits for the focus meter to fill up, and uses poison. This will net a lot of points, as he also gets a diversion bonus.

Anyway this is just a basic framework for teamplay, anyone interested?

Yeah I have a mic. I also need a good plan for defence. Basically if 4 players are near each other while blended, you get 60 points instead of 15. And since im going for overall points, its more like 240 points towards our score each time the bonus comes up. With charge and smoke one player can get a stun, and then the other use smoke on them as they get up for another stun.

Basically each player has to use their smoke on the guy as he gets up and you can keep milking stun points.

Iim on holiday now, but I have work in the morning. I think NZ is 18 hours ahead of NA.

I work 9 am till 12 mid day ( coaching tennis) so thats like 3 pm till 6 pm I think for you guys. If you were to play at around 7 pm or something I guess I could come on after lunch, at 1 pm.

Anyway thats two people so far, need one more, or we simply practice with the 3 of us and just have 1 spotter

I'm going to have to play a bit, as I'm only a level 8 and haven't had much time with this game's MP. How long will it take me to get the stuff I need? What game mode would you suggest for fast leveling?

Play manhunt ffor fast leveling, and will give you some practice and a good idea on how things work. Get to level 19 I think, thats when you unlock templar vision. Since I have slow acting poison I get 300 points, so I think I might do that.

Also, could anyone help me get a 3000 point bonus for a kill? I will record it, but will need some help getting it as I need someone with termplar vision and throwing knives to help me out.

I got 2700 in one kill just now by myself, but I cant hold them for focus points

Alright scratch that dont need help on the bonus, but im still keen to show a teamwork video, I guess just 3 of us might work out if we have one spotter, one charger who smokes and mutes, and another to rack up loads of points..

So out of the two guys who posted, any of you have Templar Vision, Mute, Throwing knives or Poison yet?

I have every ability at lvl 50.... Although I don't have all the challenges unlocked and some bonuses like extreme variety or triple escape( Got lots of double escape)

*Fast acting poison
*Rapid reload smoke bombs,morph,and decoy
*strong charge
* Mute (haven't use this one that much)
*long lasting Templar Vision
Question? Can you use templar vision high up a roof like the map of Venice? Sometimes I can't see much below on the high roof in that particular map?

Best perk in Defending in my opinion is wall runner (escapes)

EDIT: I've played multiplayer in Beta and the first day Brotherhood came out

Before... Decoy was awesome for Lures' espically with morph' So much fun when playing with friends
"Now the tables are turned into another direction"
Now.... Try and get as many Stuns' and Escapes' as possible
"hopefully when you die the player only gets 100 score"
Triggering chases is a lose/lose situation unless if another teammate gets a diversion Wink

It has a pretty short range, I use strong TV and I can just see them from around corners. The shorter the effect the better as well, you just need to identify them and then let it run out, then you can walk around the corner and own them.

I will let you do the poisoning, I might do the templar vision/spotting job. We need one other person now with mute and smoke bomb

AFTER READING YOUR EDIT: Well hopefully thats the plan, someone with mute and smokebomb will trigger a chase and the other guy will simply waltz in and get the poison kill. Im thinking maybe he should throw a smokebomb of his own to give himself some more time, basically the first guy throws it to give one of them enough time to get in Incognito, then he throws the other to get himself the focus points.

I will be watching from the roof tops and can instantly aerial kill any other targets that are waiting for us to kill someone for a stun

Too bad MP couldn't give us Poison Darts or that will be just too easy Tongue
Agreed I'll give it a shot Exclamation Mark communicating will be important and we will need one guy to distract and attract attention while the rest simply wait for prey.(not sure who that will be though).

In my experience the prey always just goes into a big group.

I have a headset, dont know about you but I can help give some order to our movements.

For instance at the very start I will say im going after the far left target on the compass, each of you press left on the D pad until that target is highlighted, this way we dont all split up.

Once we get pretty close, il go on the roof and wait for the other attackers to get close to the group. You both wait until I highlight the right target, and then the charger rushes in and uses mute smoke. His status is on discreet or even chase so he shouldnt kill, so the other guy will then walk in and use a smoke of his own and poison. I will then instantly target the other guy ( if there is one) and use throwing knives so you guys can get him too. Then il say the next target and we move on

Sweet that makes things a hell of a lot easier. You can relax, im not going to go all commando on you and make you play really serious, for the first few games I expect this plan to fail and look like a joke, but with practice I think it will look quite good on paper and on the camera

Sorry, I may not be able to join you in this. Just too much going on right now with school that I'm going to put gaming on hold for a while. Best of luck with your plan (though I'll admit that I don't understand most of what you're talking about Big smile).

Once you start unlocking the abilities im talking about it will all become clear. I think DAZ was keen so we can wait for him, surely there is another PS3 member on this site interested though?

I really need to be fixing my wi-fi on my PS3. Been playing a lot of StarCraft II and have been messing with my internet settings. As soon as I get it all good, I'll inform you guys. I'll be excited to start playing Multiplayer... at level 1..

I could help with this if you still need someone, but it might not be practical because of the timezone difference(New Zealand is 12 hours ahead of the Netherlands).

My PSN account is Pavan_NL, level 32 at the moment, so I do have all abilities, but no upgraded ones(except for long lasting smoke bomb).

long lasting smoke bomb is perfect, use it with mute and you could be the attacker. I will add you soon, what time do you usually play, morning, evening, afternoon?

This will only really work if you are a morning person, from 8 am till 11 am

Can anyone tell me what mute is? I got it and used it on an obvious hunter of mine and all that happened was a circle went around me and he killed me a second after (the circle hit him and everything).

It locks their abilities for a short period and they cant stun

meaning if he charges in and uses both at the same time they cant use smoke or anything like that and cant move

Why don't we X360 players do something as well. Jack maybe you can share, if you don't mind, the techniques and the 360 team can produce the a video using the skills as well. Maybe like a double feature?

EDIT: Now I see the irrelevance of this post. Never mind.

I could possibly do this, don't count on me though. The hard part is the hours.
