Death Counts

What is your average amount of deaths?  I seem to die less when I use the sniper.

I'd say mine is from 3-7.

you mean to say that when you are normally holding down a position (ie. people walk into your traps), you tend to die less than if you're running around trying to find people ... hmmm strange how that works ...

It all depends. Sometimes I'm just in a groove where it seems like I can't die. Where there's a high fluidity in my movement and the whole game is like one big motion. But, more times than not, my amount of deaths is a bit related to my amount of kills.

So let's say recently I have been able to hold an average KDR of 1.5-3 per game. If I get 20 kills, I will usually end up with about 7-8 deaths. Obviously it fluctuates. I die way more often in Plunder and TO bc I sacrifice myself for the objective all game.

There's also games where I can't seem to find anyone all game. I'm always in the wrong spot at the wrong time. So maybe I will end with 1 death. But I will only have 4 or 5 kills. It's rare but it happens.

Either that or he's like 99% of snipers who camps and gives the rest of us good snipers a bad rap...

Bang Bang!

With the Raffica and any long gun I do a 4 death average. The Tau is 5-6 and other pistols are around 8-10 deaths.

I'm basing it on pistol use because it's my frequent gun out regardless of long gun.

First of all, I noticed the icon below your name. Let's go Bucs!

 

Second, you'll find people use a lot of different strategies to increase their death count. It's all personal preference.

 

I like to run into a very visible spot on the map and just dance around until someone kills me. Or I will sprint toward an enemy holding a Hammer and just start punching the air wildly.

 

I've seen other people just repeatedly roll drop a grenade and then stand on top of it. Or jump off a ledge over and over again. But I consider those methods boosting. It's cheap. Sure it takes a bit more effort, but I think you'll find it's more rewarding when you use legitimate methods of raising your death count. 

 

Bottom line: don't get frustrated. You'll have those games where you go 23-0 and you just can't seem to buy a death, no matter how hard you try. But keep at it. Eventually you'll get your death count up to a respectable level. Good luck, man.
