Yesterday, I decided to try using only the knife for the 1st time ever to unlock some of its camos. Now, I know some of you have done this before, but I'm not quite sure how you approached doing it, so I thought I'd share mine. First, here's the class setup:
ghost/lightweight (perk 1 greed)
scavenger/fast hands (perk 2 greed)
dexterity/extreme conditioning (perk 3 greed)
With this setup I was able to regularly dominate the competition. With it, I went positive at least 6 games in a row, got multiple bloodthirsty medals, & made top of the scoreboard at least twice.
Now, like any other knifing class, you want to be extremely mobile - this way you can get in close to use the knife. That's where the lightweight, dexterity, & extreme conditioning perks come in handy. Lightweight enables you to move faster than anybody else that also isn't using a knife with this perk. Dexterity allows you to climb faster to get behind those pesky snipers quickly as well as ready your knife faster after sprinting. Extreme conditioning, when combined with lightweight & dexterity, allows you to get to where you want to go faster than anybody else so you can start flanking, confusing, or setting up tents as necessary.
The other perks come in handy too. Ghost is what I used to keep myself off the enemy's minimap so they can't see me coming. Fast Hands enables me to use my smoke grenade quickly, which is useful if I need to make a quick get away. Scavenger may be last, but to me it's arguably the most important perk for this setup. Why? Well, what's better than having a smoke? Having 2 or more. ;D
...and therein lies the key to this whole setup: scavenger & the smoke grenade. You see, the game only allows for 1 smoke grenade because you can't get a 2nd like other tactical grenades - this helps promote game balance & now I can see why. However, the game DOES allow you to get more smoke grenades after you've used it by using scavenger & killing an enemy. With this combination: I can have concealment, easily flank the enemy, help my teammates, escape easily, hide in it, reduce the size of open areas, break snipers' line of sight, & always confuse the enemy. For this reason, I was able to achieve success with the above class over & over again.
In conclusion, what do you guys think? Is it a good setup in your opinion or not? Would you use it? Or have you used something similar? Do you think there's another setup that might be better? If so, why? Discuss.
