Safely Engaging Enemies
Sometimes in Blackout Mode, you will not be able to circle around an enemy, and avoid combat. Here are some tips for your team to get the upper hand when fighting enemies.!
Focus Fire On Close To Mid Range Targets
Focusing your team's fire on a single target will increase the chances of bullets hitting that enemy, bringing them down faster! By focusing on a lone enemy first, you can quickly bring down the number of enemies you fight, and gain the advantage!Check Out How To Improve Your Aim Here
Use Downed Enemies As Bait
Downed enemies will give you an advantage since their teammates will try to revive them. Try to catch them in the act of reviving their teammates, and focus fire at them while they are vulnerable!
Shoot At Different Locations
It is wise to shoot at enemies in different locations. This may disorient the enemy, since they don't know who to fire back at.
Provide Covering Fire To Far Targets
Further targets may be harder to focus your fire on, especially if only one player in your team has a long range weapon. Provide covering fire to pressure the enemy, and possibly create a window for your teammate to shoot them down!
Make Sure You're Safe Before Healing
Before healing up, or reviving a downed teammate, make sure there are no nearby enemies, and you are in a secure location. You do not want to get caught by an enemy in your exposed state!
