I was gonna go with line of sight but i don’t think it will work with the new game because maps are full of people now. I want to suggest a “weapon ready mode” mechanic instead.(I don’t know if thats a thing but it would be cool)
When you press (or hold. There should be an option to select between) the assigned button, 47 will put his hand on his gun and rest there but also people are near and who sees him(from a logical distance) starting to get suspicious slowly. While you’re in this mode if you press “shoot” button, 47 will pull out his gun and shoot where you are aiming at(unlike “mark and shoot” mechanic game won’t go slow motion, no marking, no multiple kills or different camera angles. It will be a position like he conceals his weapon behind but toggleable).
Let’s say you changed your mind but before you get out off the mode someone get suspicious. He will come to you (if he’s a guard his weapon will be out and ready) and start saying things like" What are you hiding, let me see your hands sir,… " etc. If you get out off the mode before you make him angry then you gonna be ok. If you don’t then arrest phase starts.
While i just talk about arresting we need “HUMAN SHIELD!!!” back! Fake surrender is so stupid right now. I mean do you think 47 would beat a guard that comes to arrest him while there are 5 more guards pointing their guns at him? Besides being useless it also breaks the immersion so bad. Only benefit it has right now is giving you some time to think about which way to run.
Good day and happy hunting 47s.
