The 6 Dirtiest Moves in Games We Cannot Approve Of

Cheats of rage

We at Outside Xbox live by a strict code of honour and observe the Geneva Convention at all times, but not all videogame combatants are so humane. Witness their low blows and cheaty guns brought to fist fights in this damning expose.

Flinging a handful of sand in your opponent's face is dirty tactics 101, for instance. It's the ideal opening gambit if you're outnumbered, outclassed or if you just left your self-respect in your other trousers. You will find perpetrators Ezio of Assassin's Creed fame and Street Fighter's Cody in the video above.

A similarly dirty trick is bringing a gun to a hand-to-hand duel, like Mortal Kombat X cowboy fighter Erron Black, who is dirtier than than an unbathed Christina Aguilera circa 2002. He has an entire character variation based on swiss-cheesing the unarmed you with his twin revolvers.

I don't know if there's a Mortal Kombat rule book, per se, but it's hardly in the spirit of things, is it now. I remember when Mortal Kombatants used to rip out spines with their bare hands. It was a simpler time.
