2. Hold Down The Melee Command Key

Once you're in position, hold down melee command key to initiate a Finishing Move. Remember to fully hold it down or you might just melee punch them instead of a Finishing Move.

Many perks & equipments can give you an edge when trying sneak up on players. Ghost Perk hides you from digital surveillance while Assassin Perk shows off enemy directions when they're firing unsuppressed weapons.

Use Ninja, Ghost To Sneak


Footsteps gives away your presence and location, so use the Ninja Perk to conceal your footsteps. To avoid Scorestreaks from giving you away early, use Ghost Perk to stop showing up on the minimap. Both can be chosen at the same time with Perk Greed Wildcard.
