Respawning is a term used to describe when you die and get resurrected onto the battlefield again. If you die, you have to wait 5 seconds before you respawn. When you respawn, you get a 2-4 second respawn protection so that you can run away from nearby enemies and grab a weapon before others chase and kill you. Usually, if you kill yourself, you'll respawn far from the place you died, but usually you'll respawn close to the person who killed you before to take revenge, but watch out! If you kill someone, they'll probably respawn close to you to take revenge with respawn protection on. Sticky Grenades are best to take down people who had just respawned as their explosion timing is delayed.
