anyone else still having problems shivving people?

10 replies 209 views Edited May 10, 2014
Now its like even when I'm directly behind someone the shiv won't work, and no I wasn't damaged or whatever, buy seriously do I have to literally be touching his **bleep** to be able to shiv now? I know they shrunk the shiv "cone" but seriously I can't get any shiv kills now even if I'm behind them for like 3 seconds, anyone else?

Shivving doesn't work in stairs and uneven surfaces in general. Just like high fives or stealth kills in UC3 MP.

 

ND refuses to fix this long-time bug for some reason...

That's the worst Part it was a completely even surface I was sitting behind this guy in armor for like 3 seconds, and then he noticed me, gave me the run around and shivved me back, -__- like what the **bleep**

For me personally, I just need to be directly in line with them and right on their **bleep** - so there is a difference but I'm still stabbing away!. I'm not having too much problem with it.

It's happened quite a lot to me too. Really annoying when you've stalked a guy, crept up on him, shiv prompt-triangle, triangle, triangle, triangle- then he turns around and scissor planks you.
Wonderful.

Happened a few time but prompt comes up eventually..and no, not damaged at the time.
One time was standing behind a guy shooting at my teammates and the prompt just refuse to come up, after I melee the guy, the prompt appear....

But I die more often when I waited for the shiv prompt and I have no shiv

Is it possible to shiv someone while they're in the supply box opening animation, because yesterday I should have shivved someone but it didn't work? Maybe it was just a one-off thing but I was pretty confused on why it didn't work at the time.

Other than that I haven't really had any problems with shivs.

I have been having this same issue for quite awhile..i stalk him like dog the bounty hunter...i get right behind him and the shiv button wont come up..at this point im like 0_0.....then i butt bump him 3 times and go to the right side of him and it pops up...too late he notices me and drives a nail board into my shoulder....
