How to Provide Cover

In a recent SnD game I personally witnessed the worst cover I have ever seen in my lifetime. It was a 2 on 1 to our advantage. I had the bomb and had just layed down to plant it. As i was in the process of planting I told Empreza to cover me. he took my order literally and tried to form a human blanket over me. Soon enough I get knifed from behind without any warning from Empreza. Soon after i was stabbed Empreza also tasted some knife. Empreza had nothing to say to the press after this event. So after witnessing this sorry excuse of “cover” I’ve decided to give some tips for covering a teammate.

To Provide Proper Cover Fire:

  • Form a human blanket. Do not form a human blanket.
  • Keep a good distance from the player that you are covering.
  • Make sure you have a good view of the area.
  • Have an alternative route planned if the player goes down.
  • Communicate with your teammate.

These tips will help you to provide cover. I suggest that Empreza reads over all of these at least 15 times before playing in another SnD game.
