by using something else.

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe

i get free shiv. rarely using higher tiers.

if i do its either for a sneaky unlock in int or quick flank in surv. and in both cases i find it less effective than my covert1/runner1. dont have pts for #3 tho so thats certainly a factor

You crouch walk. You get a free shiv. Let your teammates lead the way, when you find the enemy get behind em (attack they're flank). This will get you at least 4-5 kills a match.

I'm using it to hunt on people. I'm always closer to enemies than to teammates. Also i'm using covert instead of silencer in my hunting rifle - I shoot then change position to shoot the fatal bullet.

And you guys are using tier 2 or 3? Personally I found that tier 3 is waste of points. If enemy doesn't know that you have covert cause they can tag you, then you have some kind of advantage. And since I'm playing with HR I ALWAYS know when someone tagged me.

I use Covert 2 in 3 of my 4 load outs. I like the free shiv. And I like to flank while a couple teammates keep their attention.

I stop using that perk. Its a waste. I prefer Crafter lvl 3 and whatever other perk I can shove.

I always use covert 3 for survivors. It's really helpful for flanking and the shiv, 55% of the time, is a life saver.

Run really, really, really fast then crouch, it confuses the enemy sometimes when they see a red dot then use listen mode and don't see anyone... lol
