A Backstrike is an automatic bonus given when sneaky tactics are performed using a dagger.


To backstrike an enemy, simply run up behind him, and slash him with a dagger combo. It will deal double normal damage. This is very useful when trying to defeat a tough enemy.

Game Note

A backstrike does NOT work when using Throwing Knives, or any special dagger skill such as Asp, Adder, Sidewinder, or Viper's Nest.
