The backstab command allows you to to attempt to deliver a devastating attack to an opponent. You must be in some kind of physical stealth to use the command, and you cannot be in combat. Backstabbing a foe does not require a bladed weapon, but the weight of the weapon you use will impact significantly on how difficult the command is to perform.
