As a Stealth, I cannot seem to successfully backstab anyone in the training mission. I run behind the enemy, I attack with the blades, and he just turns around and me! The tutorial says a backstab can kill any enemy in one hit, but I can't get the hang of it. What else must I do? Is there some cloaked/uncloaked requirement?

A handsome rouge? Are you attractive makeup? (Sorry, I cannot pass up the opportunity to catch people on that misspelling. :P) – FAE Apr 3 '12 at 17:04
@FAE perhaps I'm simply a Freudian supporter of RED team – Ben Brocka Apr 3 '12 at 17:06
@FAE He's referring to the "Meet the Spy" video from Team Fortress 2 :) – DrFish Apr 3 '12 at 17:37
@Bora I realize that, but he stilled spelled "rogue" incorrectly. ;) – FAE Apr 3 '12 at 17:47

To kill them in one hit you need to be behind them and be in range, hitting too early will uncloak you and the bot will turn at once.

You can see that you are in range by your crosshair chaning looks as on the picture below. crosshair chaning

As far as I can tell you do not need to be cloaked, but I have a hard time telling if the cloak have faded before i hit when I try to do it vs the bots in the training mission and it is definitely easier if you are cloaked.

"hitting to early will uncloak you and the bot will turn at once." That is way important. If you miss your first attempt, you're dead. – John the Green Apr 3 '12 at 20:57
