Stealth is a crucial mechanic that you must master in Ghostwire: Tokyo. With this, you can catch multiple enemies long before they know you’re there, and take out one or two of them before an entire group notices your presence. As such, your timing must be right, and it’s important to understand the finer details of this mechanic. This guide describes how stealth works in Ghostwire: Tokyo.
Whenever you want to be stealthy, you should make sure that Akito lies down and moves slowly. You’ll know when he’s crouching because his perspective is lower to the ground and a small kneeling icon will appear in the center of your screen.
Next, the streetlights and the surrounding area of the city will show your stealth when sneaking around visitors. If the streetlights are white, you’re in the clear. When the streetlights are yellow, a visitor will think you’re there and you need to make sure you don’t make eye contact with them. You’ll also see a small yellow audio icon pointing towards the visitor on your screen, showing their distance from you and how close they are to discovering your location. When the lights are red you are out of stealth and in combat.
You should hold the line between the yellow lights and sneak up on any visitor you try to sneak attack on. It’s okay to make quick eye contact with a visitor, but make sure they don’t get too close. Even if you get into a fight and lose sight of the visitors, you can crouch and cloak again.
