I just can't figure out Stun in multiplayer

#1scm60Posted 11/17/2010 3:05:56 PM
I can see my attacker coming, I wait till they get fairly close and I press circle over and over and they still kill me. I haven't been able to do one Stun yet. What's my problem?

Stun really only works if your behind them or have smoke bombed them. Don't rely on stun to get your attacker before he kills you.

when waiting to join a multiplayer session it might mention the following

catch you pursuer by SURPRISE to STUN him/her before he can COUNTER and kill you.

and it actually caped that stuff, (might not be the same but the gist of it.)

If your attacker sees you, forget about stunning them.
The assassination sequence will activate before you are in range to stun 99% of the time..

Ok, got it. I'll stop trying to stun and either drop a smoke bomb or just run away. I guess there's no way you can counter and kill a pursuer.

I'm gonna semi hijack this thread but I played the beta (haven't been able to play this game..more later)...couple questions

1) Is the kill range still MW2 commando large or did they tone it down a bit?
2) Is the stun still a miracle to pull off or did they make it a bit easier?
3) Has anyone else heard of or experience when searching for a game the warning that the AC Brotherhood servers are unavailable and it kicks you back to the Main Menu

I still haven't been able to play a game yet

1) Pretty much.
2) Miracle.
3) Haven't had this problem.

Have you tried holding circle instead of mashing it? That might work but I'm not totally sure.

If your oppenent sees you, don't try to stun. You have to get them by suprise. If you hit the stun button and they hit the kill button, they get priority. I've pulled off a few successful stuns, all in Manhunt though. It'd be a miracle to pull it off in Wanted, because your oppenent would be either killing you or loosing thier contract by killing a citizen.
