Commandos references

Easter Eggs

Shadow Tactics is considered a spiritual successor to the Commandos series, and has a few lines that serve as nods and callbacks to Commandos.

  • Hayato comments on them being behind enemy lines again.
  • Aiko sometimes says “Guten tag” while distracting enemies.


Easter Eggs

If you kill Noburu with Takuma, he will quote a haiku by Matsuo Basho:

“In the cicada’s cry / No sign can foretell / How soon it must die”

Dark Souls reference

Easter Eggs

If you light the hidden bonfire at the Myogi Pass in Mission 12, you will get a trophy/achievement called “Praise the Shogun.” This is a nod to Dark Souls, referencing both the Dark Souls bonfires and the famous “Praise the sun” line.

Developer NPCs

Easter Eggs

Certain enemy units are named after developers who worked on the game. If you kill all of the developers, you will earn a trophy/achievement called “Mimimi,” the name of the company that developed the game. The video below shows the locations of all the developers.

Basic Tips


Always check the enemy’s field of view. Keep in mind that it will change to yellow if the enemy is about to notice you. If it reaches you, they’ll alert the others. This gives you a few seconds where you can still get away.

There are times when you’ll need to hide from your enemies.

If you crouch in the bushes, nearby enemies won’t be able to see you. However, if they’ve been alerted, they may start searching the bushes. Be warned that you will be vulnerable in this condition.

Hiding in the water is also effective, as long as the enemy didn’t see you enter.

Buildings can be safe hiding spots.

Certain map conditions can also affect what you need to do. For example, footprints left in snow can alert enemies.

Finding a body is another way enemies will become alerted to your presence and start searching for you, so take care to hide them.

Enemies won’t notice bodies in the low-visibility range of their field of view.

You can hide bodies in a variety of ways, such as hiding them in bushes or throwing them into water. Mugen also is especially effective at hiding bodies. This is important, because if enemy reinforcements don’t encounter any bodies, they’ll stop searching for you.

Enemies killed through seemingly “natural” means, such as boulders being thrown at them, will only alert enemies for a short amount of time.

If you knock out an enemy, they will only alert the others if they see another unconscious enemy once they wake up. Therefore, if you knock out multiple enemies, hide the bodies in separate locations.

Ammo is limited. Avoid using ranged weapons if you don’t have to. It’s best to save your ammo for when you need to take out enemies that you can’t reach.
