Whenever there's a side quest like beating up an officer for some information,I always have to battle every platoon in the block.Is there any tips or techniques to lure them to a secluded area?.Also some tips on silently getting forts(I just beat the crap out of everyone inside)
I've come to the realization that being stealthy in AC is incredibly difficult, not because the game is inherently challenging, but because alot of the stealth systems are unrefined or broken.
For instance, I was trying to do a liberation mission where you have to kill a tax collector. So I sneak up on a roof nearby so that I can do an air assassination. The only problem is that as soon as you're within a certain distance from the target he automatically notices you, even if (as in my case) you're on a roof, BEHIND cover.
Stealthily taking down forts is also incredibly annoying without the ability to crouch behind low walls.
