I seem to frequently die in the 'last man standing' showdown because:

  • Out of ammo.
  • Target is obstructed by cover.
  • Max is in an awkward position e.g.doing a flip, and can't get a target in time.

Can you actually do anything in these situations to not die?

Can you elaborate? – user3389 Jun 3 '12 at 7:57
Why downvotes? The answer is short but still correct. There are sometimes situations in which you just can't win a last man standing due to the situations mentioned in the question. – dbemerlin Jun 3 '12 at 13:42
What's there to elaborate? There's some situations where you simply can't win last man standing, period. 3 of them are being mentioned in the original post. Either one or a combination of 2 or all 3 will make it impossible to win last man standing. – NoCanDo Jun 3 '12 at 19:18
The OP asked a question. I answered correctly. Case closed. If you want a 3 paged essay as to WHY, you're SOL. And no, I won't flag anything. The question asker deserved an answer, and that's that. Maybe somebody will delve deep into the game mechanics and explain why in these situations the answer is NO. I won't. I'm not obliged to. – NoCanDo Jun 4 '12 at 9:04
well, you COULD power off your console or PC immediately. That's one way out. :) – Jeff Atwood Jun 12 '12 at 9:11
