I do the "feint retreat" all the time with my riot shield class ( Hamr secondary !)

run around a corner with shield up and bump into 2 or 3 people (usually on express) stop, crouch then slowly back around the corner deflecting bullets with my shield.

Switch to hamr and mow them down as the rush in expecting easy kill

The shield used well is something I dare not face, it seems weak but when facing it, I prefer to run without feinting.

I have been having fun doing a version of this using c4.

Same principal. Get into a gunfight: One kill, retreat, place c4, then wait and ... boom!

What I learned: Some people REALLY hate being repeatedly blown up while chasing you around the map

Thats their problem for chasing someone without proper preparation and prowess

I was doing this over the weekend (because the c4 discussion here got me thinking about practicing its use) and had to kick myself for not thinking of the general tactic beforehand.

Which, in turn, got me thinking about why so many people play the way they do. I mean, how often do people actually turn and run from a gunfight in this game? Even when they're CLEARLY at a disadvantage?

To quote Hugh Brenner: "Is a puzzlement!"

I love leaving little C4 presents for people that are chasing me, it freaks them out....

To the guy who posted: Chase and Die.

This is what that tactic is.
