A: Press M and choose one that your team owns

Q: How come people can see me when I'm cloaked!?
A: Cloaks emit a loud buzzing sound, which makes it easy for people to pinpoint. The cloak also is much like camo in any other game, there's a slight visual distortion, and people can still see your shadow.

Also if you have a laser sight, people can see the laser sight of your gun. Cloak is great if your enemy has no idea where you are, but if they are shooting at you, best try to kill them or speed mode it outta there.

Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66GHz 3M Processor
1GB (1.5GB on Windows Vista)
