Tapping (Usually done in wolf team) is when someone unplugs/puts their modem on standby, kills someone, then plugs it back/returns the connection.

How it works:

When you play, your modem is constantly sending and receiving packets. When you tap, you are temporarily disconnecting yourself so that you will not receive new packets.

At this time your character will appear to freeze to the other players and in turn they will freeze as seen by you.

This is when you can shoot their frozen models, so that when you reconnect and all the packets that could not be sent out during the few seconds of the "tap" will be sent out at once. This is why if someone is tapping and he kills e.g. 5 people during the tap period and plugs it back, All five people will suddenly die at exactly the same time.

When you are tapping you are just as vulnerable because by tapping, you are freezing yourself too so your potential tapee's (victims) can easily shoot your model, rendering you dead.

My advice:
1. Hide in a corner where nobody can find you during your frozen period

2. Unplug

3. Run outside and look for victims. Be as fast as possible to kill him because if you freeze for too long (8+ seconds) you will disconnect yourself

If you don't see anyone, run back because you don't want to disconnect

4. Run back to your original hiding spot after killing

5. Replug
