You'll start seeing them. The more you play, just make sure you turn the volume up. You need to hear where enemies are shooting from as well. Usually they won't kill you right away and you'll have time to duck and cover if you know what direction they're firing from.
Do this. Grab a sniper, run up a mountain or giant hill or something like that. Slow yourself down, watch people from a high point. See how they move. Take a few shots if you feel comfortable, they might see and kill you but eventually you'll learn how to snipe people.
Also... treat the game like it's real life. In real life you wouldn't run and gun in a war, and it just doesn't work here. Real life tactics work better than you'd think.
