Blacklist, the latest instalment in the franchise of action Splinter Cell from Ubisoft, includes a series of co-op missions that require two companions working in perfect harmony, certain areas can only be accessed with cooperative skills.
Unlike other games of stealth, to be detected or even captured does not imply that the game is over. If a player is caught and taken hostage by the enemy, can be rescued by a shot that is certain to your partner.

If to that you add another player, one can shoot a constant flow towards their enemies while the other focuses on protecting them from attacks. In addition, in co-op mode your partner and you can be saved from death by running to your side when they run out of health.
