Finisher moves can be triggered by depleting an enemy's stamina or by using a last-moment parry. The game uses a smart system to create diverse and visually impressive finishing animations, such as environmental kills and situational kills.
Wanted: Dead has a clever way of creating finishing animations. It first searches for opportunities to use the environment or situational kills, such as taking an enemy's weapon. Then, it keeps the gameplay visually interesting by moving and rotating around enemies to create exciting takedowns. These finishing moves not only look cool but also serve a combat purpose, making the gameplay more action-packed.
Get Your Weapons Right
As in all games of this nature, make sure that you have the correct weapon equipped for the job you want it to do. For example shotguns and snipers are two very different weapons, and shotguns are really only good close range, and snipers are at their best for long range shots where you have some time to make an aim.
Learn the Mechanics and Combos
You'll get the most out of this game if you learn a variety of mechanics and combos in the game. This way you'll have the right attack for the occasion and also visually you'll see a lot more in the game as opposed to the same attacks. The developers have put a ton of work in things like takedowns and mechanics so you may as well use them.
