Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm not talking about with some of the situational bonuses (e.g., First Blood, Revenge, Chain, etc.) but a pure, single kill as if you were in the training ground.

The highest scoring kill I've been able to get was a hidden, focused, incognito poisoning which nets 1000 points (with the default score bonus for poison):

  • 300 points - hidden
  • 150 points - focused
  • 350 points - incognito
  • 200 points - poison

Is there anything I can practically do to get higher than that?*

* besides crafting the poison to have an additional 100 point bonus

It's not possible to get an acrobatic kill (200 points) from a hidden spot AFAIK. It's not possible to get an aerial kill (100 points) focused and hidden AFAIK. Grab kills (450 points) are just not very common and you can't get enough of the other bonuses with it.

I'd be perfectly fine with an answer that can adequately explain that this is as high as it gets. I'm just thinking there's some bonus that I'm not aware of that can be earned here. I could be wrong. –  Jeff Mercado Dec 18 '11 at 3:33

After trying out all different kinds of kills, I believe this is as best as it gets. A lot of the other kill bonuses are not attainable or as rewarding as these kills.

With the different kill bonus types, these bonuses are mutually exclusive:

50 - Reckless
100 - Discreet
250 - Silent
350 - Incognito

100 - Kill
100 - Aerial Kill
200 - Acrobatic Kill
300 - Hidden Kill
450 - Grab Kill (To get this, you have to give up the Poison bonus and you only get an additional 150 points)

150 - Focus

200 - Poison

You must use the hidden gun for these so you give up a lot of the above bonuses:

100 - Mid-Air
100 - Execution

These are situational and doesn't really yield any of the above bonuses:

50 - Grounded
100 - Contested Kill
50 - Ground Finish

All other bonuses in the game depend on the situation and game type so are not the kind of bonuses you have complete control over and not what I'm interested in.

Not sure this fits the question either, since Jeff's asking for the highest base kill without most of the bonuses in this video. –  Anna Lear Dec 18 '11 at 3:23
    
I'm referring to only a single kill with no other extra bonuses that depends on what you did earlier. So Chain is excluded because you have to had stunned someone before the kill. Same with the variety bonuses, revenge, team/game mode bonuses, etc. etc. I'm sure it's possible to fabricate a situation to maximize a single kill score with all those bonuses as shown in the video but that's not what I'm looking for. Yes, that's exactly it @Anna. –  Jeff Mercado Dec 18 '11 at 3:28
    
The video is impressive however but it is answering a different question unfortunately. –  Jeff Mercado Dec 18 '11 at 3:36

I found a kill worth 6700 points (it was staged, but it's still cool). The actual score shows up at 2:50
