Further Track Enemy Movements
The Tracker perk will help you keep tabs on enemy locations. Footprint trails give you a rough idea of the enemy's position. This will also help you move to a safer area where no enemy tracks are present if you are compromised.

Leave Traps For Enemies
Lethals such as the Claymore and Proximity Mine sit and lie in wait for enemies to pass by. Their explosions can also serve as an initial warning when an enemy is nearby, allowing you to prepare for a possible encounter!
Reposition Easily With Smoke Grenade
The Smoke Grenade is a great Tactical for repositioning when you're compromised. When found, throw the Smoke Grenade down to immediately break line of sight from the enemy, and safely relocate to another area.
Keep Track of Enemies With Heartbeat Sensor
If you did not equip the Tracker perk, you can opt to use the Heartbeat Sensor to get a rough idea of enemy positioning. With this equipment, you can assess the situation earlier, and move away from potential danger safely!
