Here are some very basic tips that i see most people don't know about when they do ground pvp. This is also why they get rolled 80% of the time.
Use cover: Always stay close to something you can use for cover. (This isn't like space pvp)
Use crouch: This gives you a big damage resistance bonus.
Use Aim: This gives you a big damage bonus.
Use pulse wave up close: This is a close range weapon, at any distance it might knock people down but it's still not going to do much damage.
These are just a few basic tips to help all those who do ground pvp and wonder why people are "hackers" because they die constantly and get few if any kills against a fleet team that knows what they're doing.
