How to use an enemy as a meatbag?
I've tried everything (I think) and searched and searched, but I can't seem to figure out how to hold an enemy as meatbag when the red coats (or other enemies) start firing at me.
The simple on screen tutorial-text asked me to hold
Ain the beginning (I think) - this came up only for a few seconds and I was distracted at that time, I barley started to read the line when it disappeared and I didn't think much of it.. though, it's coming back to haunt me now.
I'm in the middle of a combat, making short work of my enemies - until a bunch of them decide to shoot me from afar. I've tried tapping
A, pressing and holding it, double tapping it, pressing it with other buttons etc.. but I just stand there and get hit by the bullets. The only way to escape once I get hit is by running away.. Sometimes I hide behind people or trees but most times that doesn't work.
So - How do I meatbag my enemies please?
The only way I've noticed it works for me is when I have a enemy that you can usually counter with
B, and then hit
Xto do an assassination kill.
When the other guards are about to fire, and you are near one of the easy guards that I described above, look at the HUD on the bottom right, at certain times you will see the
Abutton show different text for you to grab someone for a shield.
