The Smoke Shiv Delay
On The Last Of Us Multiplayer when someone smokes you but takes awhile to get to you, I stop being stunned and aim my weapon but the shiv prompt still shows up for them and I get shived while aiming my weapon at them from the front as if I am still stunned from smoke but I am In fact not.
If you are experiencing this issue, it is most likely the result of lag. If you could run an internet connection test (Settings-Network-Test Internet Connection) and post your DL and UL speeds below, it’ll be helpful.
Heaths that's happen to me too, I think that it's the lag between your ps and there ps. I've started punching on guys and then he shiv
I've had this same problem when I get smoked and right after I quit being stunned and aim my gun I get shivved
I have a 90 Mbps download and 30Mbps upload on the ps4 and also have this issue. On quite a few encounters I even managed to aim, get a shot out and THEN get shived!
@reyvia - please likewise post your connection speeds. It'll let us know if it is a lag issue or not.
I have this issue too, and I run on a wired connection. Many of my associates also have this shiv delay. I was throwing a molotov after the smoke wore off and I still got shivved from the front. I don't believe this is a lag problem as if you spam the triange button as you're going upfor the shiv, you can get your character to "jump" closer and shiv the opponent from a small distance.
Thanks for running the tests Phenomxx. It looks like lag is the problem, as your upload speed is pretty low. Wifi connections will often suffer from occasional interference, so that's probably what's causing the your issues. If possible, switching to a wired connection might improve your performance.
I did a few on my PS4 which I have to use wifi on and they all turned out slightly different but the majority of them were right about

no clue if that is good or bad.
That seems like it's possibly a lag issue. Could you run an internet connection test and post your results?
it is an intermittent problem. it only occurs when they are just about to get to me and shiv me right when my stun wears off and I aim my weapon up, with my weapon aimed and my reticle aiming at them they are able to get a shiv from the front.
Does this occur each time you are shived, or is it an intermittent sort of issue?
