The Last of Us: Part II is designed around stealthier, slower combat scenarios – but Ellie can still go gung-ho when she needs to. One thing the web is beginning to discover is that you can perform aerial takedowns similar to those in Assassin’s Creed, and they look every bit as violent as you’d expect from a title that’s designed to make you feel every single kill.
The embedded video was shared on Reddit by cristi1990an. We particularly like the way Ellie’s momentum throws her to the floor after the assault, and the look of surprise on the enemy’s face demonstrates great attention to detail. We doubt we’ll be performing this move too many times, but we can’t help but wonder which other secret combat manoeuvres the title is harbouring.
