The Last of Us Part 2: How to perform Stealth Kills

To stealth kill an enemy, Ellie needs to approach from behind stealthily. From there, she can grab her target, using them as a human shield, or kill them with her switchblade.


The horrific clickers could only be killed with a shiv in the first game, but Ellie's switchblade has infinite uses.

What we do know is that people close to Ellie will spot her when she's in long grass, so you can't stay hidden forever.
