Re: Michael Jackson shiv: legit tactic?

Nov 18, 2013

If you think of real life, I can shiv a guy with a blade in the neck regardless of being behind him or not...

Real life?

Thought this was a game, not a simulator.

If the angle is strange because of lag or something this is of course annoying, but usually you get behind the person, and this cant be removed, because it is the same angle as if you sneak behind the person and this feature is important. However i hardly had people that tried to kill me with this tactic and succeded, the death rate by offensive shivs is propably between 20-50 and i am level 170.

sorry if my English is not good, I am no native speaker, +the auto.correction doesn't work in this forum o0

It isn't. There's other effective ways, like using a smoke bomb or using stealth instead of pratting around like a ballerina.

I tried to save a gunshot victims life by crouching and touching his arm.

Fail.

I think it's legitimate as long as the game allows us to use it.  I didn't like it when it happened to me though.  So I just keep my distance to that person.  I don't wanna give him/her any more chances...

I tried to demonstrate it after some one did it to me, but I just couldn't...  Is there a specific direction I'm supposed to be or turning or moving??  Just curious how it works..

Now that I've had some time to think about it, I'll say that the MJ shiv is legit if the developers agree that it is.

 

However, I still believe that smoke and stealth are the more effective ways to jab your shiv in someone's throat, but my opinion may change should I opt to do this dirty tactic.
