One of the most important mechanics in Gears 5 is the use of cover. Properly used they can give you a significant advantage. Below you will find tips on how to use them effectively.
The most important application of cover is to hide from enemy fire. The safest method is to constantly change the hiding place. Otherwise, you may get exposed to an attack. Levels are constructed in such a way that it is impossible to find a hiding place that will protect you from any side.
Covers can also be used to quickly eliminate opponents. If a member of the opposing team is on the other side of the same barricade, you can quickly eliminate him. You only have to remember that there can be no difference in altitude between you. Also, if you have a shotgun, then you can use covier to perform quick attacks by surprise.
