Maintain Stealth With Perks

You'll probably be watching corners & lanes using mounted mechanics more than other weapons due to the slower LMG mobility. Don't let UAVs and what not alert the enemy to your positions so you can get the upper hand! Also hiding your kills can keep enemies guessing about your position.
