How often do you watch your flank?

17 replies 468 views Edited Nov 17, 2013
Flank stands for your backside for those who don't know. How often do you watch it so that you can avoid that un-suspecting shiv kill?

Especially when playing survivors.

I literally watch mines every 10 seconds. I become liniant if I have stratigest 2 though.

All the time, I scream when one of our team gets killed from behind and the other 2 guys don't notice jack.

Watch your flank? More like watch the **bleep** in front of you trying to dancing shiv.

Most of the time I'm turning around and looking, the fact that I play with surround sound also helps a lot, funny scenario on Bus Depot where I'm climbing the crashed bus and I hear someone climbing it after me, when I turn around there's a hunter tryin to shiv me....  -_-

I flank people. Especially when playing with friends, I trust them to handle the front battle while I go the other way to flank the enemies. I'm trying to rack my shiv kills, while using this method, most of the time I died because I shivved someone, someone else shivved me (Survivors). Smiley Embarassed

Not that often as my teammates kept prompting me to watch their arses, i feel obliged to do it all the time!

 

But when i run around i like to do a little 360 turn to check noone is kindly trying to shiv me.

I never DONT watch my flank, in fact any position i put myself in is impossible to get behind me, so i often camp my spawn and stay behind to flank the flankers. (example guarding the tunnels on bus depot while my team goes left side)

I've been doing it more often lately, but I am still not always the best at minding my surroundings.  I usually do it more when I'm going for a supply box, lockbox or interrogation, but I've been doing it more and more (since I am the stand-alone flanker half the time).

The infected as seen in TLOU Multiplayer:

Runners- Noobs
Stalkers- Covert Training 3 users
Clickers- Constant reloaders
Bloaters- People getting blown up by bombs
