Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor near-infinite combo streak tips

Middle earth Shadow of Mordor Rabbits Respawn screen 1

If you want to get the biggest combo streak you can in Monolith's new Lord of the Rings themed game, take a look at this new video from Rabbit's Respawn.

Remember Rabbit's Respawn? You know, the guy we talked about a couple of months ago who did that insane Dishonored video showing off his slick assassin skills. Anyway, he's now given some tips for those grappling with Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor that came out last week - he's showed how you could potentially link an infinite combo streak.

Rabbit explains that there are a couple of specifics you'll need to get the job done; the Epic Sword rune Tower of Defense, which increases your streak reset timer by 10 seconds; and Elven Swiftness, which increases your run speed after you vault over something or jumped off a ledge.

In the video below Rabbit explains all, and also shows off his own efforts executing the impressive streak, racking up an unbelievable 413 combo. Thanks, Kotaku.

I've been playing Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor to bring you our review of the game in the coming weeks, and the biggest combo I've managed so far is 100, without Rabbit's tips. If I get the rune he speaks of I may just have a go at breaking a higher streak combo.

Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and it's due for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on 18th November in the US and 21st November in Europe.
