If you’ve ever questioned why Nathan Drake can take in so many bullets in Uncharted, it seems he truly can’t.
You see, that crimson display that seems whenever you’re ‘taking damage’ is definitely only a visible illustration of Drake’s luck working out. Once you’re beneath fireplace for lengthy sufficient, he truly takes a bullet and drops useless.
This revelation comes from Naughty Dog animator Jonathan Cooper on Twitter:
That’s a mega-swing! Sidenote I discovered on becoming a member of the crew: Drake doesn’t ever take bullet injury. The crimson UI that exhibits ‘hits’ is to symbolize his ‘luck’ working out. Eventually enemies will get a transparent shot and kill him if he takes sufficient near-misses. https://t.co/byzVKYXVe7

In response, Uncharted creator Amy Hennig stated, “True! That was the original intention (to stay more aligned with the spirit and tone of the films we were homaging).”
So there you may have it – Drake isn’t superhuman, he’s simply actually, actually fortunate like Indiana Jones.
