This of course is being learned by yours truly as well. As being a longtime BF Vet, I've been getting melted in PvP because I'm been doing it wrong. I'm learning though, and these tips here will hopefully help some others who're having troubles as well. [b]A big thank you to everyone who are contributing their own insights and advice toward helping struggling players "git gud". Not [url=http://www.bungie.net/en/User/Profile?id=4516521]everyone[/url] can be KD whores.[/b] 1) Unlearn your tendencies. This isn't CoD. Nor Battlefield. Stop going in thinking that what you do on those games will work on this, and you'll find your success in firefights will be a little better. 2) Lone Wolves die young. Stick with your team. STICK. WITH. YOUR. TEAM. One more time for those who have eyesight problems...STICK WITH YOUR *BLEEPING* TEAM DAMMIT! 3) Use the right weapon for the map. Wider open maps like The Moon, you should use mid to long range weapons. Compact maps like Venus use short to mid range weapons with more impact. If you're going to stick to a single "favorite" weapon, learn where and when to use it to it's best effect. 3) S.A.C.- Strafing, Accuracy & Cover. Live it, learn it, love it. [b]STRAFING-[/b] Always move laterally when engaged. Those footsteps are the difference between hits and misses. [b]ACCURACY-[/b] Make your shots count as much as possible. Headshots are king, but there are no instakills from them in Destiny (except for Sniper rifles), so it's key to know your weapon's recoil and compensate accordingly. [b]COVER-[/b] Corners, ledges, whatever. Your success in firefights increases when you put something in between you and your enemy. Use the terrain to your advantage! 4) Specials aren't just for show. If you get it, USE IT. 5) Grenades. Because grenades. 6) You're not Superman, the T-Rex or the Terminator. If you have a bad round, it's not that you suck. If you find yourself getting picked off, capped or blown away frequently, it's not that your opponents are better, YOU'RE DOING SOMETHING WRONG. Each class has it's strengths and weaknesses. LEARN THEM. Each weapon has it's perks and limitations. LEARN THEM TOO. Did I miss anything? Do you have anything to add? Feel free fellow Guardians.
