Mylo's new video was as normal very well presented and entertaining please see the post bellow after watching.
I have decided to watch the latest video in a more analytical manner to see what can be learned from it.
Concentrating on the first action centered around the Airfield.
My Opinion's only guy's, Please comment with things I may of missed or are happy and blissfully unaware of.
At the start we see Mylo and the Mosin Nagant observing the new N/E airfield.
Notice he quickly spotted the targets at the Airfield as they failed to move from cover to cover presenting a clear dark fast moving shape.
These will now be designated Perp 1 & 2
Had the players used the abundant foliage there presence could of gone unnoticed.
Tactical advance to battle
So Mylo now has a general idea of the number of players in the vicinity of the Airfield.
Also a last known location.
Now as he is working alone aka Lone wolfing, He needed to approach in such a away as to be unseen so as to preserve his element of surprise.
You can see from the footage he is some what methodical in his approach.
Despite the long distance he does not run threw the open fields to close the distance quickly.
Instead he selects a line that is nearly all in cover to allow him to get within effective range of his rifle and scope combination.
A more modern rifle in a larger caliber would of course allow for a more stand off engagement.
Combat action 1
So Mylo is in a prone position observing the large Concrete area.
He has cover from the trees above and to his sides.
Being in a prone position severely limits some one casually spotting your shape in the grass and undergrowth.
After acquiring the target moving towards the barracks he fires. Notice he lead the target and aimed center mass.
His position of concealment was not blown as non of the Perp's had eyes on where the shot had come from.
Correctly he remained in concealment.
Perp 1 makes the fatal error of not peeping from cover to see where the shot had come from.
Instead he crouches and starts to do a long slow scope look across the terrain.
This confidence is most lightly from hunting new players that were of less a threat.
Of course that was a fatal error in this case.
As commented in the video Mylo had already selected his flanking maneuver using the rock Canyon
Proceeding thru the heavy wooded Canyon in a crouch stance so as to limit his noise and silhouette and in a stealthy manner.
Mylo come to the end of the Canyon and stop's in heavy foliage to observe the open concrete area between the hangers.
Perp 2 was aware that he had lost his partner Perp 1 to what sounded like a Mosin ( The sounds are distinctive.)
The sound was in the Northern area near the end of the concrete hard standing.
He started to retreat in a southern direction.
Unaware that Mylo was now far more south western of the original shots sound location.
Combat action 2
Mylo take up a concealed firing position in the heavy tree foliage.
While scanning the area notice him varying the zoom on the scope to get a better field of view, Zooming in to much can lead to you missing movement to the sides of the focal point.
I believe when he was scoping the tree's that Perp 2 was hidden until one of 2 things came into play.
Firstly Perp 2 made a sudden shift in position by taking a couple of steps forward so as to clear his line of sight.
Movement catches your eye.
The tree's branches were probably blocking his line of sight.
And secondly his oh so cool face mask with scary white decals became pronounced against the dark tree's leaves. Essentially highlighted.
Mylo takes the shot and drops Perp 2
He then does not advance to the downed corps he retreats in to the heavy cover to his rear.
Moving with speed he takes a long clock wise flank using the ample cover of the canyon and tree's both in it and on its outer boarders.
This is important, a lot of players die as they get fixated on grabbing loot.
Bodies do not evaporate so quickly as to require a suicidal run over open ground.
Lots of writing for what is only a couple of minutes of action, but the lesson that can be gleamed are straight forward and can be put into practice.
Hunting fresh spawns is bad for your health
Observe and Plan
Approach from cover
Use the environment
Don't miss your shots, take your time in approaching the dead bodies
I listed a few points here, I would be interested in reading what others see in the first combat action.
