Skill guide and instructions *GUIDE* 

HAWKEYE : This skill now reduces recoil as of MGO version 1.20. The recoil
reduction of this skill is only activated while in first person view mode. This
recoil reduction bonus is stacked with any currently activated weapon skill.
Using ASSAULT RIFLE+ Lv 3 and HAWKEYE Lv 3 you can fire the AK102 in full auto
and every bullet will hit dead on at the same location (granted you are not
moving and you aim at the same location).


SURVEYOR : 
When using auto aim be sure to aim when your character's body is facing towards
the intended target(s).  If you attempt to aim before you complete turn then 
you will have the camera snap back to the direction your character was last 
facing then you will be turning at a reduce rate of speed. It is easier to turn
your character then engage auto aim lock on rather than turning slowly like a 
turret.


TRICKSTER :
In almost all cases, setting a trap while crouching is the most efficient.


CQC+ :
There are two types of CQC techniques currently available.  The first type
involve techniques that can be executed while equipping a one handed weapon.
The second type involves techniques that can be performed while holding a
two handed weapon that allows CQC techniques to be performed while equipped.
The weapons that allow CQC will have CQC marked on the active weapon icon.

CQC moves require various controller manipulations to execute.  The following
is a list of all moves involved in CQC.

Lv 0 One handed CQC techniques :

Jab: Press the R1 button one time to throw a jab.

2 hit combo: Press the R1 button twice to throw a 2 hit combo using your fists.

3 hit combo: Press the R1 button three times to throw a 2 hit combo followed by
a low kick.

Kick: When the target is in a crouched or prone position you can kick them by
performing the 3 hit combo to hit them with a kick.

Ground Throw: Holding the left analog stick towards your target press R1 when
you get within CQC range to throw your enemy to the ground on their back.


Lv 0 Two handed CQC techniques :

Weapon strike: Press the R1 button once to deliver a melee strike with your
weapon.


Lv 1-2 One handed CQC techniques : 
In addition to the previous moves the following moves are now available.

Standing rear naked choke: Press and hold R1 when you are within CQC range to
perform this move.  For maximum efficiency do not move or let go of R1 at all
during this maneuver.  While you are in the standing rear naked choke posture
you can move by pressing the left analog stick into the direction you want to
go.

Human shield: During a standing rear naked choke while having a pistol equipped
press and hold L1.  You will stop choking your victim but can fire at 
approaching enemies.  Keep in mind that doing this will give your CQC victim
plenty of time to escape.

Forward sweep: During a standing rear naked choke press and hold the left 
analog stick forward while momentarily releasing R1 and then immediately 
pressing and holding R1 again to sweep your enemy and throw him forward onto
his face.

Side sweep: Same as forward sweep except you need to hold the left analog stick
towards the back of your character instead of forward. This technique will
throw your opponent down on his back to your side.

Crouched rear naked choke: While crouching press and hold R1 when you are 
within CQC range to perform this technique.  Most people use this when standing
is too high of a risk.  You can transition into a crouched rear naked choke 
while in a standing rear naked choke by simply pressing X once.

Rear naked choke on top of target: While having your opponent in a crouched
rear naked choke quickly press the left analog stick in any direction and 
release R1 momentarily then press and hold it again immediately to transition
into this position.  This choke gives you the lowest profile during a choke.  
However due to the setup time your victim can escape if he is determined to do
so.


Lv 1-2 Two handed CQC techniques :
In addition to the previous moves the following moves are now available.

Armed takedown: While holding the left analog stick towards the opponent press
and hold R1 when you are within weapon striking range to perform this move.
You will strike your opponent with your weapon then perform a throw that will
land him on his back.


Lv 3 One handed CQC techniques : 
In addition to the previous techniques one new move is available.

Disarm : Perform a standard CQC choke, you will first disarm your opponent then
proceed to choke him out.


Lv 3 Two handed CQC techniques : 
In addition to the previous techniques two new moves available.

Armed takedown w/disarm : Perform the armed take down as usual. Your character
will quickly disarm your opponent and then deliver an instant knock out.


BLADES+ :
When engaged in a knife fight you can swing the knife for a 5 hit combo.
However only 4 hits are required to kill an opponent with full health. If you
want to play as a knife fighter you can greatly increase your odds by not 
using the 5th strike in a combo.  The reasons for not using the 5th strike is
because it will leave your character immobile and open to any number of 
attacks, and it is also not necessary unless you have to use it to kill the
one opponent you are fighting.  The most efficient use of the knife comes by
learning how to use the 4 slash combo. This combo is the bare minimum to kill
an opponent and also allows you to freely do anything, from rolling away or
equipping a box.  You are completely free to disengage immediately as long as
you are within the first four strikes of the combo.


SOP STEALTH : This skill prevents your SOP data from being compromised. Mei
Ling's Soliton Radar is powerful enough to detect players using SOP STEALTH 
Lv 3.

Level 1 prevents your SOP data from being transmitted to an enemy using 
MONOMANIA Lv 1, SCANNER Lv 1, E. Locator greande, and NARC Lv 1-3.

Level 2 prevents your SOP data from being transmitted to an enemy using 
MONOMANIA Lv 2, SCANNER Lv 2, E. Locator greande, and NARC Lv 1-3.

Level 3 prevents your SOP data from being transmitted to an enemy using 
MONOMANIA Lv 3, SCANNER Lv 3, E. Locator greande, and NARC Lv 1-3.

I rarely include my opinion in my published work, but the skill NARC is broken
because of how the SOP STEALTH skill works against NARC.

SCANNER EX : This skill allows you to scan unconscious and sleeping enemies as
well as those captured in CQC. One notable feature about this skill is that it
is unaffected by SOP STEALTH at any level. This justifies its 3 skill slot 
cost.
