How do you do the fear takedown?
I am at the first part at the Falcone Shipping antenna and its asking me to do a fear takedown to beat the enemies that have the hostage. I try to do it but end up getting caught every time. Any suggestions? trekerman696969 - 4 years ago

You have to go in through the vents that run underneath the building. If you're trying to go in through the front door and then pressing square that won't work.
When you are close enough to do a fear takedown from within the floor vents, the enemies will be highlighted in yellow and a prompt will come up to press square to do a fear takedown. Press square to initiate the fear takedown on the first enemy, then use the R Stick to turn the camera toward the next enemy until he is similarly highlighted in yellow and press square again, then turn the camera toward the last enemy until he highlights in yellow and press square a final time. burqawitz (FAQ Author) - 2 years ago
Press square instead of triangle when you're behind someone. There should be a yellow FEAR in the corner to let you know it's ready. Bloodshed113094 - 4 years ago
Initially fear takedowns can be done for 3 enemies at most. There are 5 enemies by the hostage, so first you'll have to distract a couple of them to leave the group.
This can be done by throwing a batarang closeby, so that someone goes to investigate the noise. Gameskeeper - 4 years ago
Crucially, you may need to do a single silent takedown to charge the Fear Takedown. Check in the top left of the HUD and if the FEAR symbol is flashing, it;s ready,
Then you need to get into a good position and angle the camera so at least 3 enemies are highlighted in green/orange (sorry I'm colourblind) and hit Square to do it. Make sure once it starts you keep it going by twisting the camera towards your next target and hitting Square again. You get a long time to do this but still, take too long and it'll fail.
Also make sure you won't drop instantly into the line of sight of a guard that is NOT highlighted. This will instantly break the takedown. pyromanta - 4 years ago
