Another unique aspect of this game is the fact you can use non-lethal force to neutralize or stun enemies.
Stunning an enemy is temporary and they will awake after an amount of time.
This can be achieved in a couple of ways:
- grabbing an enemy and choosing the stun (F) option
- use stun or toxin arrows (see weapons and arrows)
- use upgraded throw stone skill
If you have used any of these methods you can then choose to intimidate this neutralized enemy. Watch out because left-mouseclick near the body will one-hit-kill him. When other enemies discover a stunned enemy, they will awake him.
You can intimidate by holding F. (Don't forget to loot first!)
In the beginning intimidating will take a while so be sure to do this on safe spots (not in the middle of town/road). But you can decrease this time with skills.
Advantages of not-lethal force:
If you used anything else than grabbing you will not have interrogated the target. It is however still possible to wake the target by either waiting or damaging (not with mouse-click and not with headshots or you will kill) but take care because enemies who have been stunned will have very high awareness.
