  • Attack only those Skeletons that chase your team; waste no fire on them otherwise. Take your freeshots at any enemy trying to fight off Skeletons.

  • Unless it's the start of the match, it would not be wise to pre-build at spawn before moving your gear up to the battlefield, your buildings can easily be taken out by the enemy team due to the open spawn area, even if you have a Level 3 Sentry Gun up, it can easily be peaked and its rockets would take too long to reach their target.

  • Try to stay away from the cauldron, but still in a position where you have a clear line of sight.
