    Sniper can assassinate some "prominent person"(hero) that labels him as an assassin but he's more of an sniper than an assassin. Just like Bounty Hunter, his ways are stealthy just like how they usually portray an assassin but he's a bounty hunter, he hunts people with bounty on their heads, people with bounty on their heads did some crime, they are unlawful.
    • Assassins take contracts without being concern if their target is considered "innocent" or "evil". Like a hitman, hired gun, etc.
    • Bounty Hunters take contracts and their targets are considered "outlaws" or have committed some serious sh*t. Sometimes they have to follow rules, like bring back alive or you won't get the bounty, unless wanted: dead or alive, while assassins only have to kill.


    If you have played Red Dead Redemption, west cowboy game, when you go bounty hunting, at times you have to keep your target alive to get the bounty or it'll be forfeited.

    If you have watched Hunter X Hunter anime, one of the main characters is a kid who was trained as assassin from birth, but decided to become a hunter(pursuers of their interest) later on. His ways are still stealthy and quick kills.

    If Bounty Hunter kills a hero he says "Another fugitive brought to justice." He follows the justice system, assassins don't normally follow justice.
    It's more on how we view things not so on definition.
    Yeah, but a bounty hunter can be considered an assassin too. It's not that you can't be an assassin if you are a bounty hunter.

      Indeed, if you view him as also an assassin.

        since he's born for it, it's his existance. Mord and Riki take contracts. Nyx just kills for his godess
        He could stopped the usual assassins assassinations. If Nyx or Phantom A. tried to assassinate Rubick and Rubick could stopped them, then how can we still play Nyx or Phantom A.. We don't know if Rubick's Anti-Assasination speciality could work on serious Assasins like Nyx/Mortred/Lanaya.. It's quite questionable yeah..


        @Judirek
        Assassins can also work for kings and highborns as you can see in fantasy worlds including Dota universe. Red Dead Redemption is real life's wild west.
        Yes heroes such as Sniper, Drow, Slark's skills are suitable to be an assassin. But they are not "assassinating". Not in the lore.. SO NO, they can assasinate with their talents if they want, but they are not assassin atm.

          Phantom Assassin is the one true Assassin who work in the dark to serve the light.
          Templar Assassin, like a certain Haytham Kenway, was raised in the Assassin Order but got indoctrinated into the Templar Order at a very young age. Like the Templars, she has a passion for 'knowledge' and 'understanding'.
          Riki, like Connor, was not born an assassin but was integrated into the order after his hometown burned into the ground.
          Nyx...let's not talk about Nyx.

          Drawing fro these hypotheses, Mortred is the Master Assassin of the Assassin Order, and is therefore the best Assassin.

            The more fanatic you are, the better you are at assassinations (no second thoughts, no anything, just the target). I think Nyx is one single-minded assassin and we shouldn't discount that.

            Also, I don't recall all 'assassins' having a single assassin order.
