If you want to avoid bullets, sneak around enemies and lay waste to your foes, you're going to have to be nimble and mobile.
The speed you'll move at in this game is tied to your weapon, almost like a class selection, and as such you need to be wary of your weapon choice.
Conversely, a heavy weapon like a bazooka is a firm favourite for many online players, and works wonders if you're aim is good.
The strongest barricade you can place down in the stage is one made up of your fellow team mates. And, inevitably, their corpses.
Stick with your team and try to fend off against the enemies as a group. The only time you should play a match as a split team is when explosives are often being used.
Of course, this tip doesn't hold water in the free for all mode, where you should probably be more concerned with staying alive than anything else.
The big guns
Now, we've already stressed the importance of speed, but firepower is just as vital. Luckily, there's one way to find out the best weapons to use.
Basically, when you die in multiplayer, you can see what weapon your opponent is using. Yep, that's right, whatever evil device has been tearing away at your HP, there it is, and now you know what you need.
Check the shop and what level you need to be to unlock it, though don't feel pressured to spend money if it's a long way away. All things in time.
Every man for himself
When it comes to free for all, the rules change. Here you need to take out the enemies before they take you out, as simple as that.
As such, finding a safe corner of the map, holding a high-capacity, powerful heavy weapon, and camping actually works pretty well.
Of course, camping gets boring, but slowly, and stealthily, moving through the map to take out enemies before they take out you will be the best way of coming out on top.
