Step 1: when you start find your closest generator then while fixing it make sure to lodge your camera into a wall, ignore the fact that the Shape has no heartbeat on level 1
Step 2: Music, when you hear this music make sure you don't do anything, its not like The Shape powers up by stalking you, the gen is more important.
Step 3: If you think the Shape is after you time for some DUKES run in a straight line in solid sight, make sure never to break line of sight only if you find your one true god a pallet. At this point walk to the center of your pallet god and dont move (still keeping line of sight with the shape). Extra: Ignore bug where music plays twice and he insta downs you, just stand there
Step 4: Whats that, he is just standing there? Well he must be friendly! Go and say hi!
Step 5: Oh wait **** run thats not how the Shape works
Step 4 for real: Knock over your pallet and wave to THe Shape still not breaking line of sight! (i.e. teabag cause you duked him good!) This also works with windows, don't be a Dwight and duke yourself though!
Last Step: If you somehow survivor long enough to get the gate open make sure you stand around the exit so the Shape can give you the old love tap so you can leave... oh whats that, he got to the gate but wont hit you? Just stand there until he does! Ignore the music and how you standing there made him kill the people left in the map, them not being at the gate is their fault, the stalking of you is also somehow their fault
Enjoy not dying to The Shape - Not the Shape
Ok little bit of context here, I played as the Shape a few times, Survivors are too *****, The Shape Powers up by stalking, i.e. not breaking line of sight with a survivor. most games involve people either screwing themselves or thinking you not chasing them is you being friendly
