The ALT key will allow you to see the Anti-Aircraft gun danger zone radius on the mini-map of the capture point you are closest to. The darker the red circles the higher the danger of being targeted by AA. Each capture point has high danger areas of the point and negligible areas. If you are the first plan to a capture point try to avoid the dark red areas to reduce the chance of taking early damage in a game.
You can re-spawn in the first seven minuets of a battle and no re-spawning the last 5 minutes.
Take airfields they are a forward spawn location.
