Escort is probably my favorite new addition to the multiplayer. Also, I've been attempting your strategies to get more points in each game and half of the time, my teammates know exactly what I'm doing (this is all without a mic) so your videos are more popular than you'd think. Wink

I tried some of the new modes and was awful at Assassinate -- had no idea what I was doing! -- and was killed 12 times while only making 1 kill myself. This game despreately needs a tutorial mode for each mode; the one that they offer (where you kill the Barber three times) is pathetically uninformative.

Escort I like more because, given the non-player VIPs, it's possible for the players to have a net positive number of kills. For all the other modes, every player kill means a death for another player, right?

Yeah, Assassinate needs some getting used to. At least it causes players to be more stealthy. It may be my LEAST favorite mode. Tongue

Whoever locks on to the other player first is the hunter. If the second player locks on to the hunter, they "expose the hunter". I don't think there's a point increase/decrease for either player, but I've noticed that if you lock on to your pursuer, the compass goes red so you know who to watch out for. They totally re-did the compass, by the way. It's just an outline of the compass.

So if the other guy locks on to you first, can you kill him, or do you have no choice but to escape? I think one of the problems I had was that when I spotted someone coming after me, I tried to kill them, but it wouldn't let me. Same thing happened many times in Escort when I was attempting to kill people without knowing that my only choice was to stun them.

Tutorials for all game modes, Ubi, we're begging you!

You can either spot them and stun them (only by lock-on) or just lose them. The thing is, you can even get an NPC as a contract if you lock onto one, but you'll never get any points that way (obviously).

Also, I've noticed a few glitches. At some points, I haven't been able to use abilities. For example, an obvious hunter would be running towards my VIP and I'd tap my smoke bomb even when the smoke icon was available, and it wouldn't work. Also, I'd go through entire matches without being able to kill anyone on the opposing team. Not even Xbox X button or Xbox B button would appear over their heads. Stare

Thanks to the person who fixed the embedding. I agree with the glitches, doesn't seem like UBI has any interest in updates, the lag and glitches have been getting worse =/
