Protagonist Amicia is assertive in A Plague Tale: Requiem, but not a superhuman fighting machine. So in most confrontations, it’s important to keep calm and keep your head down. We’ll give you those best stealth tips for the action adventure.
Hide properly: Tall grass, boxes and more
In most stealth passages of A Plague Tale: Requiem you can hide in tall grass. There you usually remain undetected and can think about your further course of action. However, there are moments when things can get dangerous there.
If a soldier gets too close to you, he can spot you in the tall grass. If the guards are already scared and suspect you in the undergrowth, they search it specifically or light grassto smoke you out.
In addition to tall grass, there are also carts or tables that you can crawl under. Boxes and walls are also suitable as hiding places. Always keep guards or shooters on higher posts in the eye. They’ll spot you through the elevated viewing angle, for example if you’re crouching behind a low wall.
Sneaking in A Plague Tale: Requiem – Distraction is king
If a guard is blocking your path, look for ways to lure them away. Stand in many areas large tool boxes. Throw a rock at it and the sound will attract the guard. If there is no toolbox nearby, throw Ignifer or Extinguis. The sparks and mist also attract guards.
Accompany you Sophia, uses Prisma. So she concentrates Light of the sun on dry grass and thereby burns it up. The rising smoke lures the guards and keeps them busy for a moment. But don’t use the prism too often on the same soldier. After the second time he becomes restless, the third time he sounds the alarm.
Pay attention to the reactions of the guards
Once you’ve lured guards to a toolbox or similar, they’ll stay there for a moment and look around before returning to their post. Listen carefully to what they say. Just before they return, they murmur phrases like “false alarm” or “I guess I was wrong.”. Then at the latest you should quickly take cover again.

Beware of noise: slingshot, vases and other sources of noise
If you want to go unnoticed, crouch down. Only then do you move completely silent. On the way, make sure you don’t step on clay jars or branches and don’t destroy any boxes. All these sources of noise startle the soldiers.
Killing enemies doesn’t go unnoticed either. the Slingshot is loud and attracts guards from the area. If you strangle a soldier with it from behind, Amicia will also make a lot of noise. Better to use the crossbow or the knife if you absolutely have to.
Corpses, however, do not go unseen. If a dead soldier lies on the path of a patrol, he will recognize him and approach the lifeless body. You still have a little time before the body is identified as such. After that, the alarm sounds and all the guards search the area.
How to escape from the rats in A Plague Tale: Requiem
In addition to human opponents, rats are the main obstacles in A Plague Tale: Requiem. Stay in her presence always in the circle of light of a source of fire otherwise they will eat you immediately. You can light glowing lanterns or fire baskets with a charge of ignifers.
Look for stick bundles. If you hold it in the fire, you have a small torch. Sticks do burn though and are only useful for a short time. It is similar with bundles of straw. If you hurl Ignifer at them, they burn like tinder for a short time. The fire doesn’t last long, however.
you carry tar and a pot you, throw it in the rats and throw Ignifer after it. Here, too, a fierce flame develops, but this is only of short duration. You can also use Ignifer with the crossbow. If you see a plank wall painted white, fire an Ignifer bolt at it. This creates a permanent light source.
