They have a big advantage over everybody because they have a partner helping them out. Like if you wanna go team up, they should play team death match.

I just try not to die. I can't even tell when people team up. I can only really tell if I'm dead or if I killed someone.

because they teamed up on me.

you can say I can just shoot them before they shoot me but their survival increases significantly since they have a partner.

I'd probably die just as quickly whether or not someone decided to team up.

Yeah, people buddying up in a free-for-all is definitely tough to deal with. Nevertheless, it's something people would do naturally in any kinda battle royale -- form alliances to clear the board before they're the only ones left, after which they simply go at each other.

For those kinds of players you just have to be smart about it. If you know people are buddying up, avoid them in situations where you could potentially be exposed to both of them at once. Find opportunities and tight spaces to pick them off or leave them for other players to pick out. Either that, or just become really good at killing people when outnumbered.

I'm more upset when people camp in gun game modes (mostly in Counter Strike). But I avoid multiplayer in FPS's as often as possible because I suck and don't find it particularly fun.
