The Michael Jackson shiv

20 replies 622 views Edited Aug 19, 2013

My friends and I coined this term, and I bet many of you have tried this, you run face forward toward the enemy and  juke to get behind them and shiv them.

 

Even if they have a shotgun, even if they have the one hit stick, doesn't matter, it's an amazing feat and feels humilating being at the end of it.

 

If someone is punching you, some of their punches have their character lunge forward, you can juke them and get behind them to shiv, it's quite satisfying.

 

This is not a stealth based shiv but a full frontal assault tactic, albeit situational.

 

Everytime my teamates and I do it, we start singing the melody to Beat It lol

 

It can be done to the most experienced players, don't think new players will be your only victims.

 

This is not easy to pull off, so don't try it all the time.

 

So, has anyone tried the Michael Jackson shiv?

Had it done to me several times; the first time I did it to someone...well, that was special, and I can't talk about it.

I did this earlier today and was surprised it worked after reading about people failing stealth shivs from behind. It wasn't an all out rush more like we turned the corner and ran into each other but I juked him and shiv'd him before he knew what happened lol.

What's more crazy is you can shiv someone who is fist fighting you. LOL. Totally defeated the stealth aspect of shiv.

 

I think shiv is OP. Smiley LOL

 

 

 

 

Just kidding.
