so i am supposed to be able to see them running past me when i am looking down my sights?
jog on with that argument fella!
Yes. Your teammates still show up in real-time on your mini-map. Use it and pay attention to what your teammates are doing. This remains true even in core - situational awareness is key. Also, before you tell me there's no mini-map on hardcore, don't bother
- there's still a mini-map during a UAV & besides, all you have to do is press start to see the entire map; do this often when you're in a safe position and hear gunfire. Coordinating and communicating movement with your team also helps. If a teammate is moving
or looking in 1 direction, try moving or looking in another - this way you can cover more ground and sight-lines. If you're communicating with your team, they can tell you when they die so you can react to any enemies coming from their direction. If a teammate
does run into your line of fire, simply stop shooting. Even the game has peripheral vision with most sights. Teamwork is absolutely vital in hardcore; if you don't have it, you probably shouldn't bother.
