After being somewhat vocal (for me at least) about how much I don’t like playing suit only and how much I don’t like using fiber wire, I’ve been challenging myself to do both of those things. I’ve been playing the game from the beginning using only the Black Dragon suit and using only the fiber wire to kill the targets.
The rules I’ve set for myself are:
Only targets can be killed.
All targets must be killed via fiber wire (except one)
Nothing can be brought into the level except the wire (not even a pistol).
Silent Assassin must be achieved in every level.
So far, I’ve gotten through Santa Fortuna and I’m half-way through Mumbai. Everything I’ve needed I’ve found in-level so far. Every target except Soders has been killed with the fiber wire and I’ve not changed out of my suit at all. I’ve only fired one bullet so far (at that truck in Hawkes Bay to start the fire).
Following up on several conversations I’ve had with other players, Fiber Wire isn’t as terrible as I thought it was (but I still think other methods are better). Suit-only is legitimately challenging at times. Lockpicks are not necessary and I’ve yet to encounter a locked door that was truly an insurmountable obstacle. I’m enjoying doing this while I wait for next season!
