In Sly 2, Sly 3 and Thieves in Time, Bentley can take out enemies in one hit by shooting them with his sleep darts, then dropping a bomb on them to take them out. A second way in Honor Among Thieves and Thieves in Time, however, is to sneak up behind a guard and hold to place a bomb in their pocket and have it explode.
