grenades and other explosives; and use other equipment as

blow. A character can take three stances: standing, crouching, or
prone; each affects rate of movement, accuracy, and stealth. The
player can dive prone from a standing position when running. The
player can momentarily sprint but will then grow tired. The screen
glows red to indicate damage to a player's health, which goes away

grenade, a marker indicates the direction of the grenade, helping
