Today when I started up Shadow of Mordor, it told me that my death has been avenged by one of my friends. What does this mean? How can I return the favor and avenge my friends' deaths?

  • This generally means that someone has killed your killer, and you can do the same for them.

  • I figured as much, but how? Did the same named captain happen to also spawn in his instance of the game, and Steam knew to tell me that "it's cool, that guy's dead", or... what?

When you die, there is a chance a "bounty" will be placed on your killer:

Vendetta: Avenge the death of Chuck Norris by killing Golm Manhunter

This is available for anyone in the game. Even randoms. So by default, if you ever see any of these, you will be avenging the deaths of friends by killing the target.

    Implausible. Chuck Norris can't die.
