I'm so glad you asked about one of my favorite gametypes.

Check out my article on my tips and tricks for Escort, and let me know what you think about my advice:

sweet guide :) i follow the VIP around like an idiot :) i never thought of guarding a fake persona close to the VIP !
do you reckon i should use firecrackers as well? like when in a massive crowd, the vip is almost at the checkpoint and the enemies are near?
also what should i do if there is 3-4 players surround ing the VIP?

That's an interesting strategy. I have no idea how the VIP reacts to Firecrackers (i.e. if they keep walking or crouch in terror). Let me know how it works out for you and I could add your findings in to the guide. I might try it out myself, too.

If there are 3-4 players surrounding the VIP, I think the tips I provided are more or less sufficient: either shoot the VIP, or throw Smoke Bombs in their direction and rush them. Or, go in low-profile with a Disguise, ideally walking in a blend group toward them, or standing in a blend group they're walking toward, because if you're wobbling about on your own they'll be able to tell it's you anyway. You may even do a mix, where a bunch of players go nuts causing a distraction while another player goes in silently for the kill.

Thanks for the tips, Ozzkore. I haven't played Escort in ACR much, but I just tried some of your suggestions and had a few pretty successful matches. :)

So I'm probably one of the better escort players in the 360 side, I play a bit on PS3 but not that much, you down for some escort?
Based on your guide you play closely to how I play, Only I am a firm believer on one defender each VIP, other two doing chokepoints and possible cutoffs, so you down for some escort?

Also highest AC:B, AC:R escort scores?
(Mine are 10k AC:B, 12k AC:R)

Impressive! I've never been able to hit 10K in anything, but I'm on my way there. Always down to play with talented people.

My highest AC:R Escort score is 8640.

a very good guide. I sincerly hope a lot of people will read it, especcially this hint " #5 : If you see the Poison symbol on a VIP, or your teammate is really close to a stealthy kill, leave him/her alone!" I agree it is frustrating. With a fast reaction, you might be able to run into your teammate and make them stumble, though. It happens a lot in manhunt as well, which has made it necessary for me to craft the poison ability to work faster. ( instead of more points). So I hope more people could reflect on what the word "teamplay" actually means. I would also like to add this hint:
The opposing team will most of the time run to one of the checkpoints, and from that point slowly start trying to locate the VIPS. So if you get there before them, you have a good chance of spotting a high profile opponent.
