    Here's the scenario:

    Respawn 3,2,1

    Look left, look right-BANG! i'm dead....

    Is it my internet speed, my inexperience or the fact i'm a 33yr who can't 'cut' it anymore!!

    I mean unless i find some serious undergrowth hide in, i'm lucky if i last 20 secs.

    I've seen a clan i can join on this website(OGC?), but i have know idea how to join. I keep getting messages inviting to join games and clans but dont know what i'm letting myself in for??

    Going to have a play tonight, in the mean time can anybody advise?:lease:

    Practice, practice, practice... Also, no matter how good you are, if you keep playing free for all deathmatches you will not last too much before you get killed. Simplest tip: try to be aware of where others are. If you're human always look at your radar, if you're chimera use your rage mode wisely to see through walls but don't overdo it or you'll start losing life and become vulnerable to attack.

    If you join in a game it could be set up to include all weapons so someone just sits at the highest point with either the sniper rifle or rocket launcher and just picks people off.
    I noticed it the other day when I joined a game that was taking place in the hanger,some bloke got to the highest point and was just picking people off.

    quick tips

    1.never just stand still
    2.if getting shot from behind jump and turn around to avoid quick headshot death
    3.try to avoid running in straight line on open maps where there are snipers
    4.when in shootout keep moving left and right and try aiming for there head
    5.if they come close to you melee them instead of shooting.
    6.when on fire shake controller up and down to put flames out,same applies with locked on waepons
    7.when running round a map dont look at your guy,look at the surround areas ie windows etc

    hope you find some of these tips helpful and just keep practicing you will get better and find your fave weapons and best way to use them.

    It's just a matter of practice i have many many losses under my belt and only 3 wins but i still have fun.. as mentioned try aiming for the head you get a kills quicker that way and don't stay still move around.

    Try Team Deathmatch to make yourself better. When you are comfortable go for Deathmatch.

    look at the controler map to find map...

    also look at the game info before you join, there is a lot of games going on at the mo with 200% damage mod and 1 shot kills, still a good match but you die an orful lot, there are also alot of vantage pionts so try to find one that suits you, but remember there are 40 people in there so means to say in about 2 secs your gonna meet someone:thumbsup:

    When you are Chimera press L2 and you move quicker and can see opponents through walls and obstacles. Rage only works for a limited time so its worth switching it off (press L2 again) and just use it as needed. Happy hunting :)

    Rage mode works for as long as you want. However, if you keep it on for more than 5-6 seconds at a time your life bar will drop to half.

    ive got 3 kills in 150 games!

    ive got 15 odd in non official in about 40 games

    i found it sooooo hard at first

    but i just put up with it and now im less than average and my tips would be as soon as its going 3-2-1 decide left or right and turn and run before the 3-2-1 is finished so you move immediatly

    as for weapons im clueless i cant manage the L2 to rage and the L1 to get with targeter so i just die

    I think Objective games are easier for not dying (and more fun), you generally know where the enemy is going to be, ie not spawning behind you, and you know where they are going (to the flag/generators/etc).

    So if people are just playing Deathmatches, try swapping over and see how it goes. otherwise follow a deathmaster along like Marvell or Adails and steal their kills, umm i mean help them by shooting at the same targets ;) you kill rate will probably go up!

    My first tip would be 'Know thy weapons'.

    Get to know the secondary fire-mode on all the weapons. Did you know with the Lark you can hold a rocket in the air and use a laser to target enemies from miles away?

    My second tip would be 'Learn the maps'

    Why not create a one player offline multiplayer game and stroll around a few -load up all the weapons and practice with them (see above).

    Lastly - avoid deathmatch games and go for team deathmatch games - as only half the amount of players are after you.

    Also, be wary of customs games with one 'shot, one kill', over 100% gun modifiers and unlimited ammo. Apart from being tedious, they seem to be everywhere. Ranked games do not allow these modifiers - but they do attract the rank whores who play a lot. Just join a squad, hunt in packs and talk to each other!
