Barrel roll and combat jumping

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

Seriously cannot stress this enough. I hardly ever see anyone barrel roll, no one is ever jumping around, no one moves at all in combat. This games combat system focuses on movement, if you are not moving; you are dead. Second area of the tyrant mine, with all the turrets and snipers, first thing I do is collect all the echoes and I hardly take any damage while I fly around the map because I barrel roll pretty much constantly.

The barrel roll isn't just useful for lock on attacks, it's causes all enemies unlock from you for a few seconds preventing them from hitting you. If I'm low on shields first thing I do is jump into the air and start barrel rolling. I can revive people almost anywhere by barrel rolling just before I land, it throws off anyone shooting at me and forces them to take a second to reacquire their target(me), giving me plenty of time to revive people before taking hardly any damage.
It's not just the dodge ability that makes it hard for enemies to hit you, any sporadic movement messes up their aim, jumping is my favorite method of movement, it doesn't cancel your reload and gets you in the air giving you the time to look around and figure whats going on while also avoiding damage. I fight all enemies practically point blank by constantly jumping around the battlefield, Scar enforcers, the big flamer guys? Literally just jump back and forth over their head while shooting down at him, AGAIN they hardly ever hit me. I get down 2 times at most per run of anything, usually not at all but depending on the team and the mission(heart of rage or the scar temple) I might go down once or twice. 

SO in conclusion "Dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge." ya scrubs :P

Wow, really? Who knew?. Thank goodness the only player in the game using movement came in to share his secrets.

Did you even read? The only reason I'm writing this is because LITERALLY NO ONE EVER DOES IT.

I do each thing you're whining about except barrel roll. I don't know how to do that, honestly.

I see people get shot out the sky constantly, something that should HARDLY ever happen. People die from fury or titan homing missile all the time again something that should almost never happen as they are the easiest attack to dodge.
