I HATE what dexterity has done to the game. HATE it. However, I do use it on most of my classes, because it simply is the best perk 3. But remember when whoever was sprinting in any given engagement would almost certainly always be the one to die??? Remember when you had to hesitate before sprinting around corners or anywhere on the map??? You used to need to be careful about sprinting because it was a great way to get yourself killed. And although it still does, dexterity has made the game even more noob friendly. Sprint all you want at the red dots because you have dexterity to save you. Doesn't matter if the enemy gets the drop on you, pwn them with dexterity!!!!!!!! Ugh. /rant
Exactly. Even if the guy is caught sprinting, with dexterity he can still shoot instantly out of a sprint and outgun the person that was waiting.
Broken Camera. Rarely would it come down to Dexterity. Youtube OvenBakedMuffin to see it in clear videos. You can see it in killcams when a sniper pop's round corner and has ages to line up the shot before you can react when you knew he was coming.
Dexterity is by far the most overrated perk. If dead silence and awareness didn't suck so much, it would the worst tier 3 perk in the game. It hardly gives any advantage and its something you can do without by not playing like a dumbass.
Dexterity, I dont know what it does, or what perk slot it goes in, but, it isnt usable. It just isnt competitive. The optimal perk setting for beating the metagame is something like Flak, Cold Blood, Engineer, using Greed to grab additionals.
"Am I the only one who uses Dexterity to claim/mantle faster? It opens up a significant amount of routes that would otherwise be untenable/dangerous."
You're not. That's the main reason I would take the perk, honestly. EDIT: But since it has to fight against Extreme Conditioning, which isn't as situational, and Engineer, which is just strong as hell, it's rare I find myself using it. .
