Phantom… Aggressive Ops? With nDreams Community Manager running intel, Gamertag VR slowly but surely masters the art of stealth kayaking in his preview gameplay video.
VRFocus is “very much looking forward to playing Phantom”
“The kayak is an ingenious idea as it forces you to think about stealth and combat completely differently, there’s no quick strafe into cover or hastily avoiding a spotlight. You’re in a kayak and need to paddle … Thankfully, the paddle controls are up to the job and feel more refined.”
Mixed learned how to become one with their kayak to become an effective stealth operator!
“The longer I played Covert Ops, the better I liked it. I melted more and more into my kayak and learned to use my weapons quickly and efficiently. So I changed from a clumsy paddle boat novice to a silent shadow and killer within 90 minutes.”
