Tactical Information

This skill does major damage when in position. Striking from stealth makes this skill great. Use with Aim and Location is Everything.

During the fight, you only use with Aim when in position. If you're fighting your target from the front, it's more advised to use Cunning Attack (or other crit-chain skills) instead. This is a costly skill based on power.
