Choosing the Correct Loadout

To start with, you must equip yourself with a light loadout and a Cloaking Device. As the name implies, the Cloaking Device is a Specialization in The Finals that can help players maintain stealth. Given the naturally low HP provided by the build, using a light build with a cloaking device comes in handy.

To choose a light build with a Cloaking device, follow the steps given below:

  • Select Contestants from the menus.
  • Choose a new light build.
  • From the Specialization Card, select the Cloaking Device.

When to Use the Cloaking Device

The Cloaking Device can be used at any time, but it is mainly recommended when you’re exposed to nearby enemies, and there’s a risk of getting spotted. Here are some tips for using it:

  • Players should use the device when not being surrounded by numerous enemies. This reduces the chances of being spotted easily, ensuring a smooth completion of the contract.
  • If you are playing with friends or teammates with whom they have smooth communication, you can ask them for cover. This helps ensure a smooth completion and decreases your chances of exposure while trying to hide.

Tips to Remain Hidden with the Cloaking Device


While the Cloaking Device is effective in ensuring a player’s invisible to the enemies, it doesn’t guarantee complete efficiency in certain cases. The following points can help you in navigating such circumstances:

  • While the Cloaking Device is active, players must ensure that they’re completely still. During motion, players become mildly visible to nearby enemies.
  • Another thing to be cautious about is the AOE (area-of-effect) damages such as gas mines or explosives. If players run into either of these, they’ll become visible to their nearby opponents and lose the contract.
