How to Defib

I've been asked by a few people to make a guide on how to get kills with the defibrillator, so here's the guide--tips, tricks, and all kinds of awesomeness included.

Why defib?
1) Stealth. Knifing makes a lot of noise; Defibbing is often quieter.
2) People look at the killfeed. Seeing "Combat Knife" right next to a name coupled with the body on the map lets the other team know where you are. Seeing "Defibrillator" often throws off anyone looking at the killfeed.
3) It's fast. Defib and go. It takes two seconds whereas knifing might take five or more.
4) Your character gets mad. The cursing upon killing someone is quite audible; though this isn't great for stealth, it's hilarious, and I can't help but wonder what would happen if the character said "THIS IS SPARTA!" instead of "Die, son-of-a-b****!".
5) Humiliation. Not many people know that you can get kills with the defibrillator.
6) It sends a message to any campers--a stab wasn't even necessary, you got defib'd, of every possible way to die. It's a very special way to tell campers they suck at guarding their back (whether it be with a TUGS, Claymores, or whatnot).

How to defib in three easy steps:
1) Pull out defibrillator. Pulling it out makes a noise, so pull it out on approach instead of right behind the target so he doesn't just turn around and kill you.
2) Approach the target and step right into him. Get as close as the player models allow. Walk into the person and keep walking until you stop moving.
3) Press the defib once. It should be a kill if you're close enough to the body and you're aimed for the torso. I find that butt hits (defib upwards from a crouch) and upper torso hits (defib'ing from the same position as the target) are the most consistent. Holding the button for a short time instead of tapping it improves the hit detection noticeably, though you can defib kill without holding it.

Terms and conditions:
1) Never defib a moving target. You have to be moving at the same speed as the target and you slow down when you start the defib animation. You fall behind and by the time the "hit" is made, you're too far behind the target for the hit to register.
2) Never defib from standing to prone or vice versa because sometimes the player models become out of reach. You want to aim at the target's torso. It's a safe bet that you can be one position of distance away--prone and standing don't mix, but crouching and standing or crouching and prone do. Being in the same position is ideal, however. This is the "One-Off Rule."
3) Never defib from the front or in a busy combat situation when you're surrounded or can be flanked too quickly. You won't have the time to line up a defib before the target reacts. Your primary works better.
4) Battlelog doesn't track Defib kills. They're added to your total of "Killed" kills. BF3Stats.com does track Defibrillator kills, though, which is where I get my totals from.

Always remember:
1) Make sure you get your laughs out of it. :D
2) Don't forget to teabag every sniper killed this way. :D

See you on the Battlefield, and may you always remember to have fun sometimes.

Great thread Grand Master Defib-A-Nick.

Everything is correct here, just a little things i've noticed with Defib Kills:

- Holding down the trigger 1-2 longer helps.
- If a person is prone, it helps to prone down with them.
- Usually aim for upperback/neck (in my experience)

With that said, I'll include this portion in a future guide..and we need to do some conclusive hitbox testing too!

Suggestion about holding the trigger added. I dunno how I forgot that one. :)

I would like to add to the list of 'why to defib?': You get the angry medic curses that I guess everyone misses, the ones that were bugged in the beginning so the medic shouted them everytime he defibbed a friendly. You know: DIEEEEEE YOU SONOFABITCH!!!! (The Russian ones are definitely my favorites)

If in doubt: switch to engineer.

I'm pretty sure it just displays "Defibrillator" in the killfeed. Not 100% sure on that, but I've seen people get those when I was on a server with them.

I didn't know they took them out, but then again, I wasn't onboard at first. Added.

Sokolovac, will it be under Symthic YT channel? Im trying to organize some people who can make good videos for "Project Symthic" (massive exposure of Symthic).

And yeah when you defib someone its the best thing ever. Killfeed shows that long eye-opening word..Defibrillator, then followed by super raresies voices like: (excuse the language i kno youre not suppose to curse in Symthic)

DIE YOU MODEYFUCKKAAA
TAKE THAT YOU SONOFABITCH
DIE DIE DIEEEEEE
HOW DO YOU LIKE THAT YOU MODEYFUCKAA
TAKE A LOAD OF THIS ASSHOLE
HAHAHA DIEEEE
And many many more...

Seems like Dice really wanted to make Defibs the ultimate humilation tool..hopefully theyll bring out dogtags for them haha. And, going to make a Defib Only server! Whose down lol.

1) Symthic YT channel? In the unlikely event I can convince my parents to let me use my debit card to buy some recording equipment, count me in! (They have my card set up so that I can make deposits but they have to approve all purchases over $50...kind of stupid given that I have a job and the only money in there is mine.)
2) Send a message to this guy: tohellnbak He runs one of my clan's two servers. Tell him Nick sent you and he'd like to know if he'd be up for another Defibs Only round (which we've done, but I was never on the server for it). If someone mentions humiliation weapons to one of us, everyone pops their heads up :)
