Marksman
vs CommandoBody.png
Commando
The Commando packs powerful weaponry which has extremely high damage. However, as a Marksman, you greatly out range the Commando and you should be able to get headshot in easily due to the Commando's relatively weak building and digging abilities. Try and stay in cover while shooting the opposing Commando from long range with your Sniper Rifle, and use your high speed and agility to dodge the rockets. If you're feeling brave, you can try to combat the Commando with the Pistol at close range - when you're doing this, circle strafe and jump around erratically to try and dodge the rockets and Minigun bullets.

Marksman
If you end up in combat with another Marksman at long range, try to shoot the opposition with your Sniper Rifle, while constantly changing your sniping position and firing quickly to make yourself harder to target and predict. If you meet at close range, try to jump from side to side randomly and randomly move forwards and backwards to make yourself harder to hit while shooting your Pistol. If you are very close to the other Marksman, it will be easier to kill them with your Pickaxe due to your high speed when using it and its high damage output..

vs EngineerBodyBlue.png
Engineer
Engineers have a weak damage output compared to you, and will usually not stand a chance against your Sniper Rifle or Pistol, but note that they can make use of the Engineer Jetpack to make themselves harder to hit. Make sure you know where they are, because if you are too close the SMG can do a surprising amount of damage and the turret can be a major threat.

Marksman
vs MinerBodyBlue.png
Miner
Miners are one of the largest threats to Marksmen. You're most likely going to meet a Miner when you're going offensive rather than defensive. If you happen to meet a Miner in a close range situation, quickly retreat to a longer range so the opposition's Shotgun will not be able to do much harm. Shoot the Miner with your Pistol while making short sprint bursts to keep out of the Shotgun's range. Beware that Miners move about the same speed as your walk when they are sprinting. Keep in mind that you do not have to aim for the head, and with the Semi-Auto Rifle a body shot will actually do more damage, because Miners have a large headshot reduction.

vs ZombieBodyBlue.png
Zombie
When fighting Zombies, remember that they move about almost the same speed as you do. Try to stay at long ranges, because Zombies can take you out in a single strike. Remember that Zombies have a ton of health, but headshots deal double damage to Zombies, which means that your already headshot dependent weapons become even more headshot dependent.
