Start by extending your life. Forget kd or kad. Run a drill where your goal is not to die. This is harder than it seems. To do this you’ll learn to constantly watch radar and you’ll begin to anticipate where fights are because you’ll be focused on where your teammates are, where spawns are, sounds, basically all the stuff that you don’t focus on because you’re anxious about fighting, aiming down sights, and losing situational awareness. You’ll learn that you need to constantly move fast to cover. Hug walls, run behind things that break line of sight. Stay out of lanes and open areas. After you learn how to read the game and move to extend your life more. Start working on adding verticality to your movement until its second nature. Burst glide to cover. Slide in and out of cover. Jump around corners and over doors. Then when you feel like movement in and out of cover is really extending your life, start working on getting assists - not kills. Play your life. Bit by bit, those assists will become kills, but your movement and game awareness will take you to the middle to top of the board more often. I’m not a great pvp player, but I’ve gone from terrible to the middle / top of the board regularly enough to have fun. Even now with small sweaty cbmm lobbies. You can get better. Good posts elsewhere in this thread. Eyes up and good luck.
