Guard Tips (All Characters)
Bear with me here. These take a while to explain. I’m sure that flashlight guards get on your nerves. Through time, I’ve found each of the guards from each level’s weaknesses. Most can be used as all of the characters but if not, I’ll let you know. Okay:
World 1: The dogs dressed like birds are definitely not as fast as you. All you really need to do is run around him, and continuously knock at him with your cane. Just make sure to go in a complete circle and not to stop at all.
World 2: These guards are especially easy to handle with sly. You must buy jump attack level one; then run up to them and let loose. They are instantly electrocuted. With Bentley, just follow the same procedure as world 1.
World 3: These flashlight guards work the same as world 2 with Sly. As Bentley, follow the same procedure as worlds 1&2.
World 4: These are one of the hardest flashlight guards to handle and there is no real trick with these guys except to continuously whack at ‘em. The tigers’ spears are the hardest to dodge, or so it seems. They throw where they think you’ll go so, all you really have to do is stand completely still when they first throw it and it will go right past you. But only use this trick every few time per guard, or else they catch on. (Works with all characters)
World 5: The dogs armed with cannons are impossible to dodge, but will die instantly with a jump attack level one with Sly Bentley should just do his best to only throw bombs in pockets. But if caught, get a safe distance and hit the guard with a sleep dart, then RUN!
World 6: During Honor Among Thieves you will only face guards once, and it will tell you to use your grapple cam.
Murray can take out little guards with two simple regular attacks so remember that. Flashlight guards can be killed if you just hold strong or fist of flames of course.
Another way to take out guards easily can be used by all of the characters is to make the guards attack themselves. Get in front of a guard, and then jump out of the way as another guard comes attacking you. It’s hilarious and helpful. WOW!
