When it comes to slaying huge monsters that can breathe fire or shake the earth, assassins would be a profession least likely to hunt them. However, Capcom decided that assassins can be just as good as any Monster Hunter. Take a look at the new gear for those who want to take out targets like the assassins from Assassin’s Creed.

With the iconic hood, hunters can dish out additional damage when attacking from brushes or high up areas. Yes, you can perform the assassin’s leap on unsuspecting Deviljho or Rathians. However, this piece of gear isn’t something anyone can just take for themselves. Players will need to pick up a quest called the ‘SDF: Silent, Deadly, and Fierce’ if they want to show off some of their assassinating skills from the popular Assassin’s Creed Franchise.
While there is no hidden blades or any of the like, it still gives a breath of fresh air as new content are looming around the corner for Monster Hunter: World such as the new expansion. Be prepared like any other assassin and take down those monsters with swift and silent force.
While it is out and about for XBox 1 and PS4 players, it is, unfortunately, going to come out a little later for PC players. Don’t fret, all content will be fresh out of the box for all hunters out there.
