Clever Gamer Dresses Up As An Enemy In Dark Souls II, Confuses Everyone

Wearing an enemy's costume in Dark Souls II and scaring the hell out of others when they invade? That's absolutely doable.


YouTuber GuardianHX tried it out and got some incredible results

This trick worked as well in the first Dark Souls but is harder to pull it off in the sequel, since characters have unique stances and animations. But as you can see you in the clip, you can still trick a lot of new players with it. Here's how it works in five not-so-easy steps:

  1. Dress up as a Hollow Royal Soldier in the Forest of Fallen Giants.
  2. Apply their skin tone.
  3. Lure the original enemies out and kill them.
  4. Take their spot.
  5. Wait for other players to invade.

That's pretty great, although I can't really run by an enemy that many times without killing them (it just bugs me), so I don't think this trick would work too well on me, or others of a similar mindset.
