Some good tips, hopefully it stops all of the noobs from dying so much.

I can't recommend the melee upgrade enough with the brawler powerup. You get two hits with it and on standard deathmatch, you can get the materials really quickly. Its basically one-hit kill as the article says and I've been able to go 3v1 against players with it.

Also, I wouldn't recommend wasting time crafting medkits. There are midkits located around every supply point (iirc) and what I've noticed is that if you're actually running low on health and you go to a supply plint, you get a medkit from them anyway (on the deathmatch mode anyway).

The proximity grenade thing (I forget the name) can be utilised in some cheap but effective ways. When you're outnumbered, you can place one next to where you're fighting and once you're down and players try to execute you or take parts off your corpse, they can get killed by your cheekily placed mine.

Also, don't underestimate the stupidity of other players. Use downed players to lure enemy combatants trying to rescue their mates. A good team will communicate so will warn teammates about the 'trap' but I've noticed that not many people communicate as much so its a case of the blind leading the their deaths.

The bow is brilliant if you have a decent aim. Stealthy, two shots= down or one headshot. I have turtle beach PX5's and I've struggled to hear the direction people shoot arrows at me. It takes a while to unlock but you can use the custom classes.

Oh and the custom classes are quite good. The one where you get the military sniper is useful because it takes AGES to unlock it and the gun is brilliant.

I can go on but the game has a lot of depth and the varied weapons all seem to serve a purpose.

The most important tip is to play with friends, I'm tired of losing because of COD like teammates

No, you can get the Sniper Rifle off the bat with the Sniper loadout...

Haven't jumped into multiplayer yet, but these tips will definitely help out.

Dont split off from your team UNLESS you really can handle 3-4 people by yourself. This isnt to you specifically, just had a great set of matche except this one guy would run off and basically sign his own death warrant.

I hate those people! I have seen people fend off 3-4 enemies (in fact, I've done it myself), but it's a rarity, even against inexperienced opponents.

Haven't had a chance to jump in online but these tips should be of good use.
