Actually the best way not to be hit, in Battlefield LIVE, is not to be seen!” said CO Zev va
If you move carefully and are constantly looking around and listening, you can often spot the enemy before they spot you. When moving, stop every few paces to look and listen.
The human eye is attracted to movement, so if you stop and hide before the enemy has spotted you, they will typically not see you. Looking around, including behind you, is a good skill to attain.
New gamers tend to look at the ground in front of them or look forward to where they expect the enemy to be.
The enemy however is often not where you expect, so you have to expect the unexpected.
Keep looking and listening all the time and stay alert!
If you do come under fire, you probably should be seeking cover. The best cover is often vertically oriented objects such as trees or walls. The bigger the tree trunk, the more angles it cuts off, and therefore, better cover. Anything that blocks light in Battlefield LIVE counts as cover.
Once the enemy knows where you are, you should try to move as soon as you’re not pinned; sometimes you have to be brave. You never want to be where the enemy expects or knows you to be. Often retreating and approaching the enemy from another direction works well.
