Team Deathmatch Tips
If You Can't Kill, Focus On Not Dying
Team Deathmatch victory is determined by the kill count of each team. Meaningless deaths would hurt your team, so focus on not dying if you can't get kills or are unsure where to go.
Follow Your Teammates
2 guns are definitely better than one! Follow your teammates to overwhelm enemies, or avenge them when they took the blunt of enemy fire.
Cover Your Team's Flanks and Rear
When you fight in groups, cover the sides / rear of your teammates. You can tell which sides are their sides / rear by looking at where their rifle is pointed at.
Move Along The Sides Of The Map
Move along the sides of the map so you'll have less angles to cover due to the map border "protecting" your sides. This also gives the enemy less angles they can attack you from.
