Can we change shiv to X?

17 replies 302 views Edited Aug 26, 2013

Shiving is my favorite thing to do. But, in all honesty, the triangle button is a terrible choice for it. I've died from failed shivs for pretty much every dumb reason I can think of; from reviving a team mate to openning a supply box or special executing, the triangle is too busy a button. 

 

Instead of triangle, why not cross? Cross is only used for.. what? Crafting and jumping? (In all honesty, who jumps? I've only seen people jump in two spots--to get onto the broken off wall in university, and to get on top of the trailer in lakeside.)

 

Anyone with me on this?

Eh you get used to it. Helps if you don't let your screen look down any while going for the shiv

X is also used to heal teammates. But I agree with your idea, it would solve a lot of problems.

They also need to fix shiv on stairs

I smoke bombed two guys, one on status on dam, one on lakeside, and came down the stairs to shiv, and the game would not give me the shiv option.

Just like high fives in uncharted

Button mapping would be sweet.

Only when aiming, it has no use otherwise.
