Well, if you can MJ shiv a guy using Flamethrower or Shotgun, it's legit to me. Because you actually have a very short timeframe to pull this off before getting flamed to death and down by a Shotgun. It's just 1 second. And if someone is whacking my teammate with a Machete, I go behind him to shiv him. Is it legit?

Yesterday I was shivved when I was looking at someone trying to do this on me. It's a **bleep** tactic on anything but a full bar connection.

I have sensitivty on full and had the flamethrower chasing him the whole time

I love shiv-dancing. Especially when some **bleep** is trying to shoot me with the massively OP flamethrower. If I've got armor, full health, a shiv, and enough open space to get around them, I can make a flamethrower-user rage quit 90% of the time. Gotta love that.

I'd have to say that it's pretty obvious that it's not legit, and is clearly a design oversight. It makes no sense at all that just because somebody threw a punch, one which very likely hit you square in the face, they'd be completely helpless and unable to react while you shuffle around them and kill them for free. It's also clearly abusing the fact that, playing with a controller, your look sensitivity limits how quickly you can turn around, especially when you're actively aiming your weapon.

Agreed. Shivs are for stealth play, no this cheap mechanic.

Bunch of hat*** if they got you with a shiv dance accept it and move on. It works 3.5 outta 5xs for me. Very hard to do against SG& upgraded 2x4 easier against Flamethrower.

Just to clear up: Anything in the game possible to do = legit tactic. Question should be "Do you think it should be a legit tactic?", not whether it is one.


This.


LOGIC FAIL ALERT

 

Glitching is possible in multiple games and it's not a legit tactic and it is a reportable offense according to PSN and ND. Also, hacking games (like TLOU) is possible but isn't legit and is reportable (for a possible ban).
