In a tournament situation where youre up points bunkering is not the most important thing unless the opposing player is past the 50 (you dont want them tearing up your guys on oppo field) so sacraficing your body for his is useful. In a situation where you are down points and limited on time snake bunkering is a must. NEVER HESITATE when making a snake bunker move. once you leave your bunker the desicion has been made. if you stop to go back or deviate, more often than not you will get shot.
Overall work on communication with your team and just start bunkering people. Only way to get better at it other than watching tons of raw game footage on pbaccess is trial by error. You'll pick it up real fast after you get blown up a couple times.
Great advice. Also make sure to practice bunkering. I know that might sound a little strange, but make sure when you run someone down that you are going to hit them, its shooting from a close range but if they are tucked into their bunker or you are not accurate while running it is possible for you to miss. And trust me, there's nothing worse than getting your back blown up from a guy you thought you just bunkered.
