Roadie running: Move and hold A to start running. You won't be able to fire when roadie-running, but you'll go a lot faster which will help you avoid bullets. For the newcomers out there, if you see someone shooting while roadie-running, they're using a far too common glitch called "Crabwalking". I have no good strategies for beating them, I like to use the chainsaw myself. If you're trying to avoid a sniper by running, try and wallglide as much as possible in the midst of your run somewhere, this'll make your movements(especially the movements of your head) less predictable. It is not recommended to roll, as you pause for a very small moment after a roll allowing a skilled sniper to blow your head off. Of course, if you can roll straight into safety, do so. It's also recommended that you don't run in a straight line, veer a bit to the left, then to the right and so on. Even unskilled sniper can hit you if you're running in a straight line towards them.
SWAT turn: If you're hugging a wall and there's another one to the left or right of you that's not too far away, you can tilt your left stick to the direction of the wall and press A to perform a SWAT turn. Helpful in some situations such as trying to move undetected.
Always remember, try to act unpredictably, especially when circling cars or pillars when your enemy is on the other side. Gears of War has a psychological side to it, if you know how your enemy acts and you act in a way he can't predict, you'll most likely be able to kill him.
