I am trying to get The_ INDEPENDENT_hack, and I need to activate 2 kill streaks during 1 sessions. My questions are:

  1. Does stun streaks also count (they activate kill streak skill bonus)
  2. Can I combine both, kills and stuns? For example kill -> stun -> kill to activate streak?

I am asking because it's kind of hard to notice if I actually got the bonus during my play, as I simply forget about paying attention to it once I am in the middle of massacre.

As far as the game is concerned, landing a stun has the same effect as getting a silent kill. In other words, a single stun will increase a kill streak score (silent or otherwise) by one.

So yes absolutely, stuns count in your kill streaks. Has been that way since Revelations.

Kill streak is a bit misleading, it's more of an "attack streak." For attacks (kills) on contracts or attacks (stuns) on pursuers. – Jeff Mercado Jan 5 '13 at 1:35
Thanks. Now time to get it done! – Kedor Jan 5 '13 at 6:00
