@limpoyzloan: Great battle. Now, Booker's powers are extremely destructive. Undertow coupled with Shock Jockey is a dangerous combination. If Booker spots Corvo, then Undertow could be very useful. That coupled with Possession, Return to Sender or Devil's Kiss and we have one dead Assassin.

However, we gotta take into account that Corvo is an extremely talented killer. And those powers of his are designed for infiltration and assassination. He may not be as destructive as Booker but he is faster, more fluid and precise. And he won't get into open combat with someone whose abilities are far more destructive.

So, in a straight up fight, Booker. Since Corvo hardly ever fights straight-up and likes to use stealth and surprise-attacks (at-least my Corvo anyway); I would say he wins. Bend-Time + Blink + Face-stab. :)

Corvo in a bit of a stomp, that possession ability is horribly broken in a one on one fight regardless of stealth or not.

Skrew Booker, get Jack! If you want some real plasmids, hit up the man at the bottom of the sea!

Booker has a rechargeable shield and can chain permanent invincibility with upgraded charge. Corvo can assassinate him (poison his food and drink or something) but in a straight fight he loses.

That's the point. Corvo rarely gets into a straight fight. Booker's powers are more destructive but Corvo is more agile, more precise. Bend time + 10 incendiary bolts + bend time again + back-stab = One dead ex-Pinkerton. :P

Yup. But I would consider the bend-time to be more broken lol. But Booker has possession too.

That too would be broken in a straight up fight but it's the difference between Bookers that sends out a ghost that needs to get them and Corvos that puts you inside of someone as soon as you activate it.

Yeah. But you cannot attack or do complex movements just walk and open doors. I get what you are saying though. Did you play the DLC?

Shouldn't the no Outsider rule imply no abilities? Bend time and blink alone give Corvo the fight on a silver platter. Without abilities for either I'd give to Booker due to the savagery and survivability of having fought in a war. As far as I know Corvo did mostly reconnaissance and couriering for the Queen. I might have missed any mention of his military record in that game.

Corvo stomps.

Bend Time+Blink+Stab in the Back>Anything Booker has.

But on the plus side, I do like Infinite a little bit more than Dishonored.

Depends completely on the location and the starting distance. If they begin within sight of each other, Booker has more than a good enough chance of lifting Corvo in the air and laying it on him. If they start unaware of each other's locations, Corvo wins this without much effort.

Exactly what I was trying to say. On a different note, did you play 'The Knife of Dunwall' DLC?

No I have not, nor have I played the brand new one that just recently came out either.

This is an awesome matchup! I`m going with Booker Dewitt due to his more powerful abilities and he seems to be more versatile fighter, also he has taken on an array of powerful enemies that would potentially give Corvo a run for his money.

You should really try it, if you can. It's incredible. Playing it from Daud's perspective is just awesome. You can see how the Empress' assassination broke him and how he is obsessed with the messages The Outsider has been giving him and depending on that, you can either be a lil' bit less murderous than before or turn into a complete psychopath. His powers are cooler. I highly recommend. :)

Corvo. He would tackle this tactically. He would stalk him and then silence booker.

#25 Posted by AverageComicDude (10 posts) - - Show Bio

I Agree That The Starting point Will decide the Outcome In a Straight Up Fight Booker Has The Edge But If Its more On Stealth Corvo has the edge

#26 Posted by Drew_Tan (348 posts) - - Show Bio

Corvo has time stopping abilities along with possession and teleportation. Booker would be hard pressed to try to get a good lock on him with his powers and weapons while its alot easier for corvo to handle him.

Im playing dishonored again because of this lol

#28 Posted by Rijehu (517 posts) - - Show Bio

Corvo due to his skills as an assassin and the abilities at his disposal.

@limpoyzloan: +1 for being creative on this battle. and i agree on with drew said

Corvo in a stomp imo. Booker will have no answer for bend time. The ONLY chance Booker will have is if he could try to possess Corvo before he utilizes any of his abilities. If Corvo doesn't open up with bend time, then Booker will either have to get a lucky possess/shot in or try to predict where Corvo will blink and kill him there.

In equipment/tech, Booker definitely has the edge, and even in overall arsenal of powers, but Corvo's blink and bend time are just too much for Booker.
