    Recently joined forest hunter cov. And think maybe I finally understand the terms Griefers GAnkers (nother story tho). My question is, I get backstabbed a lot. Lot of times the guy is not even behind me. Flipped into backstabs too ( tried rolling away and boom, the BS)

    Also, seems everyone is fishing for this glitch (the SIDE BACKSTAB) hmmmm

    How's it being done? Are they using lag as the enemy?

    Try to always roll sideways, if you roll toward or away from an opponent then the usual outcome is a back stab. On your screen lag will make it look really weird too as if they aren't behind you or similar.

    Watch BS tutorials on YouTube. EWGF's is the best I've seen. Pretty much essential info for PvP. And a lot of Forest PvP is just BS spam anyway.

    The hit box for the back stab is kind of on the side and back. Like your characters kidney area, i think im not a doctor lol. Forest is just a back stab competition, and i think its fun every once in a while but it gets boring. You can get back stabbed as you roll away and as you roll/flip towards them,very easily. Lag does play a part in it, but you can learn to be less predictable with your footwork/rolls and hinder a majority of attempts. Not saying thats easy, cause i certainly dont have it down perfect.

    Its probably just lag . It maybe seem like a "Side Backstab" on your Screen, but on his Screen it looked totally legit .

    The best thing to do is also the worst thing to do. Learn counter backstab. Wait until they try to backstab and do it first. I know, this makes PVP nothing but two dudes circling each other trying to get a BS, ridiculous but necessary in the forest.

    After a while you learn to avoid anyone coming anywhere near your back. Keeping good range on the opponent with a weapon like the Pike or a greatsword of some kind is a good idea. That, and anticipate the lag. Practice timing the amount of lag. Practice, practice, practice, is the key to the forest.

    backstabbers are generally easy to kill just learn to lock-off as you take your swing and flip 180 mid swing to catch the little fekers, best to use a good stun weapon for this
