Part Two of the Splinter Cell Blacklist Spies vs. Mercs Video From the Merc’s Perspective

on July 30, 2013 3:52 PM

Yesterday, Ubisoft released an interesting video that showed off the Splinter Cell: Blacklist Spies vs. Mercs Blacklist multiplayer from the perspective of a Spy. Today, we get to see the opposite–how to play a round with the weapon toting Mercs.

Unlike the Spies, the Mercs’ only job is to kill. They must defend the terminals from any hackers and, luckily, they get an array of cool weapons and gadgetry to do so. According to the developer, the proxy mine is the best gadget to use since you can plant it in the most unexpected places. Make sure to keep your distance though, because Spys are physically stronger and can kill you very easily if you get too close. A nice benefit of playing as a Merc, however, is that you can utilize teamwork to its fullest, since more Mercs around you equals more backup in a fire-fight.

Watch the full 10 minute video for yourself and learn all the secrets behind the Merc.
