|The attic from hell: I fortified the position with some sandbags and placed my character in a keyhole position. Two German squads are advancing (not a fat chance to get out alive, I know).|
The point I want to make is that one has to be proactive in a defensive position. A common mistake that I see in people playing Arma 3 is that they fire, duck into cover and just go up again for a second shot from the same exact position. The enemy knows your latest position and he will be aiming right into your head when you come up.
|Once the enemy starts putting rounds near you, he has you in his sights. Move out to the right side of the window.|
|I'm in the attic of the house in the forefront, facing towards the screen. When I moved, the MG42 shifted his fire violently. Not the greatest aim, I should say.|
|My shifting to the right allowed me to check for enemy activity on the left. Note the MG42 still blasting. Now some rounds are making it through the window.|
|Eventually, I had to move to my left to acquire the pesky MG42. The German was peeking around a corner. I could not hit him.|
|And off course, take cover while reloading.|
|The Germans chose my right flank to creep onto me. The red traces are from the MG42 in the foreground, which just moved.|
|Catching up with the enemy MG42, exposing myself as little as I could.|
|Until I dropped him. Ironsight fun.|
And off course, I got caught. When I slowly shifted to my right, I was greeted by no less than five K98s. Not a fat chance of survival.
