Covert 2 is useless, imo. Why you ask? Hawk Eye level 3. Covert 3 is a must for stealth.

When you're away from teammates behind a wall crouch-walking, Hawkeye does nothing. Listen Mode WOULD do something if you weren't using Covert 2.

 

Hawkeye 3 and Covert 2 are both situational tools. If the enemy team stays spread out, you wasted points on Hawkeye. If the enemy team is good at watching for flank attacks, you wasted Covert 2.

I understand guys but the moment a covert ops user stands up, runs, or shoots they are on radar or listen mode. with small maps and predictable routes along with a good team covering flanking routes it makes covert useless aside from the anti marking perk to it. hawk-eyed is my favorite, snipe out and call out people, the hawk-eyed lvl 3 glow is contagious too. And if i want stealth i can get in a postion and just not move and it works the same.

I like using it mainly in survivors, as it's good to start with a shiv, and mixed with a silenced weapon it can be really deadly.

Maybe you guys had it set to level one but let me tell you this booster, bow, revolver are a beast combo easily my favourite (other perks dont matter as much), boom smoke run in shiv get out crouch and your invisible again. This applies to the comments on the first page couldnt be bothered reading all 5 pages.

Ive never found the shivs useful, i tend to keep my distance and mark people with hunter rifle. I avoid close quarters combat unless i have a miltary rifle or flamethrower kickback.

Guess it depends on your playstyle and what you decide to craft, i usually go for the smoke bomb rather than a nail bomb, which is a really good combo with a shiv.

The best loadout  in game for me is :

 

Covert ops max

Brawler max (Really important and useful skill)

Semi Auto silenced

Βomb Range or Revive 1(i prefer the first one)

 

 

If you combine this with a team who was at least a reviver at max, someone that marks, an offensive or two people and a sniper, u can do miracles. Healing is important but

not the most necessary.
