Melee Deathblows

This perk is incredibly useful when partnered with a good Katana or Baseball Bat. Especially when you get to the late stages of the game wherein melee weapons hit 1,000+ DPS, this almost ensures that a single strike will down an enemy or if they are armored enough, survive with very little HP left.

Partnering it with perks from the Blade skill tree such as Roaring Waters, Judge, Jury and Executioner, or Dragon Strike will increase the potency of this perk when using Blades.

If you're using Blunt weapons, then, Crushing Blows from the Street Brawler perk tree would increase the damage of Strong Attacks from Blunt weapons.

>>1 When there are multiple enemies in close proximity you can get the kill and stay in stealth. Grabbing immediately alerts all enemies within close range.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

    • If I fail or cancel out of an access point, the mini-game will not load up, you'll just get the jack in/Jack out animations but the mini-game will no longer appear.
