Stealth & Combat

Of course, you can’t have a first-person shooter without fighting, and Far Cry 4 offers players the ability to approach almost any situation by either running in guns blazing or by using stealth. You’ll be fighting against both human enemies, as well as animals, which won’t hesitate to attack you without any warning at all.

The Detection Meter from Far Cry 3 returns, which is a meter that fills up to determine whether or not enemies break your stealth and begin attacking you. Note that this only applies to the human enemies, as animals don’t use the Detectio Meter. Whenever you get near a human enemy and they have a line of sight, a white meter begins to fill. If it fills up and then flashes, then your stealth is broken and enemies will begin attacking you.

Stealth will almost always be an option for the player, but some situations will require you to use brute force.
