Am I the only one who needs a magnifying glass taped to my screen?
I dont actually do as the title suggests!

But my point being, does everyone feel this way? I die alot from people I have no clue of, although everyone else seems to have the hang of it. Maybe this will be less of an issue when I understand the maps?

Eventually you'll get the eye and idea after playing for some time where enemies hide and shoot you from,still i am bugged aswell when i die and have no clue of how.

It's always going to happen because lots of people will just lay down and zoom in on an area across the map where they know people will stick their heads out, but after a while you'll be doing that too as well as knowing where not to do it, and you're going to know when it's about to happen too lol "SHT I KNEW I SHOULDNTA DONE THAT!". It's just the nature of hardcore tactical shooters, even if you watch YouTube vids of some of the really good RO2/RS players, they get nailed like that constantly sometimes too.

As Nequis says.
Especially, usually people move form one cover to the other, making their movements visible for a short time.
This gives you impotant clues with regards to their current location behind cover ... and good reasons to observe this spot, as very probably the enemy at this spot will shortly afterwards stick his head out of the cover, either to observe the front, or in preparation to move to another cover (which gives you the perfect opportunity to shoot him)

That said ... when not currently observing a specific spot, either keep your view unfocuses, waiting for any trace of movement in your field of view, or scan specific spots where you would hide (if you were the enemy) for movement or suspicious things that could be steel helmets or rifles

I'm actually having trouble to differentiate friend and foe from one another, especially on Rising Storm Maps, so I pretty often see an enemy and just dont shoot him, cause I think he's an ally.
To defend myself, I am actually completely new to RO2 and I love it - but I pretty often die without any clue. So you are not alone :D

Regular looks on the map are recommended, to see where your friends are ...
this way you can get a feeling whether a person you spot in a certain direction may be an American or Japanese

This is one of the reasons I like this game so much.

It tends to not hold your hand and stroke your ego by putting you in tiny maps with few vantage points from which you can shoot and get shot from... The maps are realistic, with so many angles that you can get shot from even when you are careful.

The better you know the maps, the better you are going to do.

Axis sprint with rifles in one hand while Allies sprint with them in two hands, pay attention to colors of uniforms and helmet/hat styles too.

Yes, I believe every player with only 10 h into this game is feeling like that. Let's check again when you have clocked 200 hours.

You will get better, it will just take some time. Don't worry about that. Learning is fun.
