Is it just me or does covert op feel useless?

46 replies 587 views Edited Jul 5, 2013

I have noticed even while crotching and using covert ops traning lvl 2 people still know exacually were i am at, i  can go to aim at someone long-range with the bow and they will be waiting on me as if they could see me on radar.. i'm not here to bash i just wonder if people feels the same way and some other good booster suggestions? such as strategist or the one that lets you hear through walls longer.

It may seem useless because it's a passive booster and you can't really see the boon from its effects firsthand. However, it is easily one of the best boosters in the game. I would make a loadout with it just in case you're faced with a slow-paced game and the other team is spamming Listen Mode.

I have noticed the same thing.  Can crouch around a corner and people are waiting

because people rely on their actual eyes instead of a lame crutch to see people. Not the best booster in-game by far

Don't you even! You think you die, and that's that?! Huh?! You think you die an' everything'll be sugar and rainbows?!

All my loadouts had it on, but it wasn't doing its job well, even while crotching they would be looking at me directly in the face like i was on a radar. I switched to another booster and crotched and did just as well. Any suggestions for other good boosters?

 

lets see i don't care much for crafting explosives, i don't care much for close quarters melee, i really like long-range and knowing were everyone is. what about the sharp ears or hawk eye? those seem to be good

I think overall the booster itself is really good. In my opinion, and I hate saying this but day by day it seems like people are camping in this game more and more. It's easier to sit on the safest part of any map and let you opponents funnel in knowing you have an advantage rather than auctially play the game. That's just my opinion because I've been seeing it more often which I find sad because it makes matches ridiculously boring.

It's useful if you use it correctly. It's really better in Survivor or slow-paced matches, but if enemies are looking at the doorway you're coming through then it will do nada. Also, I've noticed some people like to move around like they're completely invisible when using it. Won't do anything for anyone unless you play it safe.

When I first unlocked the level 2 it was always a part of my setup, but moved away from it, because when you know where the enemy most likely will turn up there's no use for it. Guess it's most effective max level and ambush type of gameplay.

Ya i think its better for people who like to take chances and sneak up behind the enemy and get in close on their side, its not the best for someone settin with their team near their spawn taking long-shots or coming down a hallway fully explosed to the naked eye. I should switch boosters for my style.

Funny cause I was just about to make a thread about the same thing. Recently I have noticed that I do way better when I don't have this booster on. I only see the advantage when you are flanking the enemy or camping. But if your traveling with your team then I don't see the point of having it. Now I'm only using covert 2 on small maps but on large maps it is useless.
