* In the early dungeons, Worlings will remain slow for a longer period of time than in later dungeons. Therefore, it is to your advantage to get your Worrior into the dungeons as fast as possible and blast away Worling after Worling before they speed up.

* Learn to use your radar scanner and rely on it to locate invisible Worlings and track their movements.

* Don't shoot without having a plan to hit something. Otherwise, you may not be able to shoot when you have to.
