In this class, try to find a nest overlooking an objective which offers decent cover. Keep switching positions after a couple of kills to make the enemy guessing about your location. Land your shots accurately by learning about bullet fall and bullet sway. While switching positions, use your sidearm. This class requires a great deal of patience so if you are getting easily killed initially, be patient, identify your weaknesses, use this guide and keep playing. You will definitely get better after a while. While switching positions, try to avoid enemy encounters as the assault or medic class carrying automatic weapons can easily overwhelm you.
