Jump to the sides(not back) to make yourself harder to hit, pistol if you run out with your main weapon.

Use the map and sound for advantage.
If you see a red dot on the map coming your way or if you hear a sound nearby try to bring you in a good position.
Marines have ranged weapons. The more space between you and a skulk the better.

It should be noted that when you have a bad aim and lose an engagement the skulk will always know that it is you when he meets you and will mercilesly ♥♥♥♥ you again:P

Like i usually test the marines, if they are all noobs i will challenge them everytime on 1v1, if they are prem div players i press f4 and go to smoke.

But seriously like people on the enemy team will always know how bad you are, so they are never afraid to charge on you when you can't kill em in the first place, so it kinda makes things harder for noobies.

Like if you have 3 green players on your team you don't really lose because of that but because the enemy also knows that and they know that they have an easy path to victory:).

Just start spamming jump. It works every time.

Brainless jumping marines are easy picks for experienced skulks.

If not already did, try increase FOV as much as ur liking & re-adjust ur mousespeed sensitivity after that. It should give u a better overview about whats the skulk doing and also abit better aim allover onto the Skulks jumping close combat around you + what Pielord said.

Keep good aim with your rifle, should be able to kill it with half a mag or less,and always jump around to the side, NEVER stay in one spot.

Just want to point something out: Jumping as a marine during any fight is a bad idea. When you are in the air, you have very little control, and you use all momentum, making it hard to shift around the skulk when you land.

Instead, just back up and strafe around, juking around the skulks bites. Unless they are exceptional, this will buy you some time to readjust to your current situation, and also request med packs if you're in a vital position. Next thing you should do is try and create some distance between you and the skulk so you have some room to bring your rifle to bear, but if that's not possible, try and stay away from the skulks front side, as that's where the teeth are.

Also, I've only ever seen half a clip take out an idle skulk, since a moving skulk will usually take a whole clip due it's moving and juking.

Well, I've never seemed to have a problem jumping around as a Marine. It always seem's to buy me a bit of time allowing me to follow up with my aimmer to kill them half the time if not a bit more then just standing still .-. That if they get close though x-x

the whole point is skulks excell in close quarters combat rather than try and fight him when hes at your ankles try and work on listening and spotting him before he gets to close, range is a marines greatest skill.

To me the center of my gun is my aimer it works fine for me .-.

Don't let skulks get in close range, kill them before or you're likely to be screwed, LOL. Engage in corridors, or stay the furthest possible.
Jackson @ Australia Aug 2, 2014 @ 9:14pm 
Oh and also, long strafe to get behind his back, or strafe jump right/left and shoot it in the back when he lost you.
