4 and 5 Ambush your enemy by hiding where they can't see you, but you can see and fire at them (I like shooting through cracks).
4 and 5

1.stay under cover as mush as possible
2.comunicate with your teamates (if you have them)
3.keep moving when possible
4.take a hostage and threaten with iac heavy cannon until he spills his guts
5.knowlegde is power
6.when planning an attack use the 5 w's when, weapons, whereabouts, what, way out
7.if ambushed split up and get the ambushers from behind with a knife

4: This is a close-quarters city-combat strategy that is called Building Hopping. I heard of this strategy in a magazine, where they were making a reportage of the Dutch military forces (de Lucht Mobiele Brigade). They use this strategy as well, though I do not think they invented it. It should also work with knex. 1: You are into a building. There is a bad guy in the other building. He is guarding the street so noone can move trough. Snipe the poor guy. It is best to use sniper rifles if you are undercover, but you can also grenades if he is hiding behind a wall or already knows you are here. 2: Target eliminated. Look around if there is someone else in the building. Also look if someone noticed he is neutralized. If it is, you need to go defensive, or be really careful. This is explained in stap 3b. If noone has seen you, try to find a way to enter the former occupied building without being noticed. This is explained in step 3a 3a: Sneak into the building. If there are others in the building, you can choose to snipe them first (see step 2) or to surprise them from close, before they have time to react or give a warning to others. Look for a good sniping position. Then start with step 1 again. 3b This should be harder but more common. Try to find a way to enter the building where most enemies are not able to hit you. Find cover to prevent the guys in the building you are entering from hitting you. You can also use a shield for this. Try to keep defensive. Snipe all enemies one by one. Let you friends guard the entrances. Basically this plays like a house base. I know my tactic is not quite fail-proof and needs some improvements but it's not bad right now. It just needs some work...

5: When out in the open, try to find cover behind a rock, tree, etc. If this is not possible, hide behind high grass, stay low, or get away from the whole outside war anyway. The best weapon to use when outside is a weapon with long range and good accuracy. (sniper rifles. LR grenade launchers could be usefull too, their splash damage means a higher accuracy.) Power or reload speed comes second, unless the enemy sends in a huge dude-swarm.
UPDATE: You can also use a Knex shield if there is'nt enough cover around. But don't rely on it too much. It can not stop all shots at you. A lucky shot that passes your shield can be deadly.

1 If you are standing somewhere upstairs, go to the stairs with some x-4's. If someone wants to shoot you, he has to go upstairs. When he is on the target area he will not be able to shoot you or hit you with grenades, but you will be able to hit him with your grenades! Watch out if he manages to get upstairs, for then you will be a sitting duck! You'd better have a friend standing at the door to cover you in case someone gets trough!
