Strategy
Hide ]

The combination of high speeds and long range shots makes Night Stalker a devastating striker to deal with. For best results start off by being a play maker in the center, either by passing long for your mobility, or by getting past any defenders along the way using your Demonic Endurance, since they cant keep up with you unless they use their sprint as well.

You goal shooting speed and range are also larger than normal, so taking a shot from close quarters would be hard to stop unless the enemy GK reads you correctly.

For defense, it's a much better idea to mark the enemy's key player rather than going after the ball. Your one-speed setting makes it easy for the enemy to make openings for passes so rather than trying to stop the pass, it would be wiser to read the pass and then intercept it appropriately, thus, turning the play to your favour.
