Stealth games are a dying breed, unfortunately, with fewer of them coming out with every passing year. It’s particularly sad, because at its best, nothing could top this genre. One of the many, many ways stealth in games has endeared it to millions is by giving players unique tools and abilities to use against overwhelming odds, and when these are used properly, it feels amazing. In this feature, we’ll be talking about some of our favourite stealth gadgets and abilities in video games. So without further ado, let’s jump right in.

OCTOCAMO (METAL GEAR SOLID 4)

You might have thought to yourself as this feature began, “there’s going to be a lot of Metal Gear talk in this one.” And, well, you were right- the first few gadgets and tools we will speak of are all from Metal Gear, starting with MGS4’s OctoCamo. In keeping with the conceit of Old Snake being a wizened, experienced man who has been through the wringer, he also had some of the best gear helping him out, and OctoCamo was the best of the best. The suit gave him the ability to immediately camouflage and blend into the environment as soon as he came in contact with any surface, while also protecting him from thermal imaging. As far as utility goes, it’s hard to think of stealth-oriented tools that are more useful.

Well, there is one.
