General strategy

Always strafe in a circle around whoever you are shooting. Avoid standing still. Always try getting rocket launcher first, then jump and zig-zag run to avoid getting shot. Always use the plasma gun when you have quad damage since it shoots fastest and can hold a lot of ammo. Run backwards away from people and shoot them at same time.
