Step 1: Build A Wall

Building a wall will break the enemy's line of sight from you. This will make them watch the edges of your wall and wait for you to peek out from them.

Step 2: Edit Out A Part From Your Wall

To surprise your enemy, edit out a part of your wall and use it to peek at where they are.

Step 3: Take Aim And Fire

Now that the enemy is in your line of sight, you can line up your shot and fire!

Improve The Effectiveness Of Your Editing

Edit Out In Triangles

It is recommended to edit out triangles from your structure since it offers you vision while covering most of your body. You can shoot at enemies from an angle where they can't hurt you back!

Triangles Instead Of Windows

Enemies may expect you to edit out a window and might have their aim trained in the middle of the structure. Editing in triangles will throw them off, and give you vision and more cover compared to windows!

Practice Editing To Get The Hang Of It
