Becoming a better team or player relies heavily on locating the respawn zones (spots where players are revived after getting killed) on each map. "Positioning yourself or your teammates on the map can effectively force the enemy to spawn where you want them to," says Rufail. "A good way to learn how to do this is to watch games in Theater mode, with the free camera hovered over the map as high up in the sky as possible. You'll be able to see a bird's-eye view of the map and where enemies spawn in relation to where your team is located." When you view the sweet spots to force the enemy's spawns, you'll know how to coordinate and execute later on.
