It can happen, with somkebomb too. A bit of lag, or you are just too late. I know its very frustrating to get killed while wasting an ability

A good rule of thumb for lag compensation is to think Mute won't work until the animation is finished. Once the circle is finished expanding, you should be good.

Mute is crazy frustrating to master! my tip is to think of it as a wave! like when you drop a stone in water a riple outward, hit the button and head quickly toward your target wait for the wave to go just past your target then go for the strike, you have to be fluid and think on what your move is first. Kinda of hard to explain! ive showed my technique to friends online and its worked for all of them.
Smoke bombs still get me and consider myself a dab hand! there will always be times when I could swear ive lured them beautifully into chasing me, drop the bomb and they run straight thru the smoke and stab my ***! very embaressing! lol. its all fun and just all the more rewarding when you get your revenge with a nice in-crown hidden poison on them! :)

hhhhhhhhh i make what you say about mute sometimes it didnt make anything but i will give it a try by the way i finished the challenge mute and stun your target so it is not me but it is may be a lag sometimes and about a smoke be carefull try to drop it before he run to you because smoke has a delay time to explode or try to craft it to maximize it is effect distance to overtake the delay time hope it help man lol

Yeah, that sounds right. I don't know if it's supposed to work instantly, but it clearly doesn't. You have an entire second to stun/kill them once they're affected, which is huge for taking on just one person. You won't get any mileage using it to stun multiple people, but you have plenty of time to kill/stun someone if you're close enough to mute, as long as they don't have the Resistance perk.

I understand mute has a .5sec delay even though it's not noticeable like the smoke bomb

when you get killed by a mute, it says "mute reveals affected templars". how exactly.

This is what Luckyto wrote about mute:


The Mute isn't active until the "green matrix bubble" COMPLETELY expands. Just washing over the person doesn't make it active. The bubble has to completely expand... so give yourself a half a second. And two, targets and pursuers get this weird wash effect (glow) over their body. It helps to know that too... you can actually pick people out of a crowd.

There is like a half-a-second delay on the abilities. You just have to practice the timing for them.

It might be the same way you throw a smoke bomb and your pursuer runs through the cloud and kills you, as if you just wait for him. LOL or,
He may had been smashing the stun key while waiting for you, and you were late by a milsecond. If you are a good player, it's probably the first.
