Tenchu 2: Birth of the Stealth Assassins Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

Hints

High jump

If you are in certain levels (Quarantine Village, Laborers), you do not need a 
grappling hook to get on to the roof of a house. Run up to the wall, face it, and 
jump. Your character will jump twice the normal height of the usual jump and land 
on top of the roof without hanging on the side.

Easy kills

Hit an enemy who is not aware of your presence in the head with a blow gun dart 
to automatically kill them.

Automatic stealth kill

You do not need to pull out your weapons to perform a stealth kill. Run to the 
enemy and press Attack. Your weapons will instantaneously be drawn out, and 
you will perform the stealth kill.

to the enemy.
