Clickers can be easily dealt with by instantly eliminating them with a stealth kill. However, it can be difficult to get near a Clicker because of their strong hearing. Clickers are more sensitive to sound than the other infected enemies you will encounter, so in addition to crouching while walking, you'll need to move your stick extremely lightly.

How to Stealth Kill | Stealth Tips

Take note that Clickers are completely blind, and they will not be able to spot you even up close, so it is possible to Stealth Kill a Clicker even when they are facing you. The only situation where a Clicker can attack you without hearing a sound from you is if you are spotted by other infected enemies within the area. This means that clickers are easy when solo, but can be a much bigger threat when partnered up with runners, who can detect you with their vision and alert other infected.

Like other infected, clickers are weak to fire, so especially when clickers are bunched up together where stealth kills seem very hard, targeting their area with a molotov can do wonders.

Fighting Off Clickers

When possible, you should try and avoid combat with these beasts, and you do not want to let them near you when you've been detected. Unlike runners, which are a bit weaker individually, a clicker can easily one-shot you with a bite to the jugular, so they are extremely lethal.

If you ever get into a situation where you are getting attacked by a Clicker, try to create some distance and use ranged weapons to deal with them. Keep in mind that landing headshots on a Clicker will stun them, leaving them open for an instant melee kill. If a clicker gets to close to you and out-running it doesn't seem like an option, pop it in the head, then rush in for a melee attack.

    • I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
