Plan B: retreat
This is pretty much exactly the same as defending
but retreating usually means you are in a battle that has gone wrong
and you want to get out quick.
The best move is usually to dive (by which I mean jump like a loony
in the general direction of) behind a box. Any sort of cover where
the enemy can't shoot at you. Don't bother reloading, throw a flash
bang. This will blind the enemy, and it doesn't really matter if
you get yourself, just remember where the exit is before you do.
Then run very fast in that direction, while jumping like a nut ball
and shooting randomly in the direction of the enemy.
Hopefully the enemy will be injured and blind, these are not the
best conditions in which to jump into the line of fire of a mad
man, so they will usually wait a moment - giving you enough time
to leave the area. Don't stop then, keep going, run and run and
run. Reloading all your guns on the way, and figuring out your next
course of action. More often than not it's go the other way. Refer
to the defending
section if it's got
especially bad on what you should do next.
