[Locked] What bosses can I assassinate?

OP Botchyop101

I want to know which bosses I can assassinate or board, so I can snag some easy points in Warzone. I also want to know if I can assassinate hunters, just like I can with knights. kthx.
You can't board enemy AI's vehicles or assassinate Hunters. I believe you can assassinate everything else though. You can only do it for bosses when their health is low.

Edit: Apparently, you can't assassinate everything else. I guess that's what happens when I don't try to do that.
Thanks for the help! I was splattered so many times for nothing doe ;-;
You can assassinate the Soldier bosses even when they are at full health. You’ll need to take out both of the shoulders on Knight bosses before you can assassinate them. Wardens need to be at very low health in order for you to assassinate them. All other bosses can’t be assassinated or boarded. I’m pretty sure Elites can’t be assassinated even when they have no shields (they used to be able to be assassinated).

I'll add to this that assassinating a warden doesn't guarantee a kill.

It's an animation. There isn't anyway to speed it up.

My point is you can perform the animation without it killing the Warden. It's flash without substance.

Elite bosses, no. I think they can be assassinated once their shields are down, but even then I'm unsure.

Knights ya gotta take down both their weak points first.

Warden assassination requires some vigilance on how many times he's had his weakened animation. When his back has a slip space screw up for a moment animation. I believe it is after the fourth that he can be assassinated, that and low health.

Soldiers can be assassinated, problem being that they are incredibly vigilant on your position and are generally accompanied by another that can just one shot you with scattershot (they generally have those) I'd suggest just punching the soldiers instead of assassinat, way nicer to get the kill and live another day.
