So, since some of the stunts in inFAMOUS are a pain to pull off and there is not an in-game list of all of the individual stunts I pulled together info from a number of web-sites I found by googling and supplied the links at the bottom.

I figure we can discuss tactics for each stunt and I can update this post with Spoiler tags for the different tactics or something.


Great Summary of Stunts and Estimated Difficulty Rating from the following site

  • Splash And Crash - While in the air, Shock an enemy and then hit the same enemy with the Thunder Drop move.
    Spoiler
  • Have A Nice Fall - Kill 3 enemies at once by making them fall from a high place. Again, easier with a grenade.
    Spoiler
    Alternately
    Spoiler
    Then another possibility Warren boss-fight spoiler
    Spoiler
  • Ride The Lightning - Kill an enemy with Precision while rail grinding.
    Spoiler


General rule of thumb is to not take over all of the districts (yellow exclamation point side-missions) before you get all of the stunts or you'll be hard pressed to find enough enemies to finish up the stunts.

Air Sticky Bomb is easy - once you upgrade Shockwave, it takes a lot longer for the enemies to fall and gives you more time to peg them with a grenade.

Pretty sure shockwave, thunder drop, melee, and damage reduction are all neutral skills.

Shockwave is a normal skill but the the positive Karma upgrade causes the enemy to float in the air for a second or two.

On the IGN PS3 podcast one of the guys mentioned that it sounds more difficult than it is since when you do your melee attack repeatedly (combo) one of the last hits you do the enemy is airborne from a previous hit. I just kept hitting the melee button and pushing toward the enemy.

Train tracks. Jump from one track to the next. Much easier then jumping across power lines. And easier still with the gliding power.

For "Insult To Injury" the easiest way to get it is to stick a grenade to one of the junk-crab things, then fire your standard lightning bolt, it's a one hit kill and they tend to just stand still when they are a fair distance away from you.

The easiest way to do it is to melee an enemy off of a roof and continue hitting the button. You should be able to get it no problem.

Flying melee can be done on the ground. Just keep kitting square. One of the hits will usually hit them up into the air and if you keep hitting them you will get it.

Those groups of spiders are good for Up Close and Personal.

Yes, the continuous melee combo launches the person into the air near the end and you just hit them with the next hit of the combo.

Nope, unfortunately not. You can only see the next stunt that you haven't done on the list. That's why I started redoing a lot of the stunts to mark them off as definitely done.

    The Sudden Stop

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 07 June 2009 - 05:33 PM

I got Suspended Sentance multiple times without even trying on the mission you get Lightning Storm in (the game encourages you to use it against several mobs of enemies). If you have trouble just try to hit the various exploding barrels/trucks when you're directing the thing and you'll probably knock someone in the air. If you're past that you can just look for any mob clustered around something that explodes.

Failing that, you'd have to try to shockwave someone against a wall (preferably a flat one like a billboard) and then immediately launch the storm before they hit the ground. Should be rather easy with good shockwave, but not so much with the evil one.

Okay, just need to do Splash & Crash, and the grenade deflect and 3 enemies off a rooftop one i believe. Hard enough getting an enemy to throw a grenade let alone actually hit him and kill him with it.

Yeah, that's where I got it too. I had my Megawatt Hammer fully upgraded so that people float when hit by it which helped to hit them with the Lighting Storm.

About Have a Nice Fall:
There are side missions like the water tower ones that spawn lots of enemies on the roof, I would try to get this on one of those missions. Otherwise, grind and fly around the rooftops until you find a spawn of 3 enemies standing in a circle and blast them off.

I'm having trouble with right back at ya :[ Do reapers and dustmen throw grenades? I only recall seeing the first sons use them
