It all started when me and Olaf (A ,member of Vigil) were in Dolina. WE headed down the road to go to solnichniy when we hear a few voices coming from a nearby house so we eavesdrop and find out that a vigil member is being held up inside. So Olaf askes me to help out with the situation and being a good friend is say yes. So I go up on the hill to the north of the building to try and get a shot, but no luck as the hostage takers weren't visible. So after trying multiple positions we see Jamie walking around in a ghillie and confront him and he wanted to help. So after realizing there weren't really any good spots to get a shot on the hostage takers Jamie decides to cut the tree down to see if we can get a shot, but again no luck. So it then comes to the point of ok we have to breach. So after Jamie tries to negotiate we decide nothing is happening and so we take positions downstairs. WE then hear one of the hostage takers say "Ok go get your pants downstairs and come right back in 10 seconds...." So me being a bit cautious, I get a position to see the stairwell. And it just so happens that one of the hostage takers came down and opened the door so I shot and killed him. And then I tried to rush the next one in hopes of saving the other hostage and managed to kill him aswell, of which I then bled out. At no point was I fully in the tree unless I was going around the table to get to the right of the stairs.
I was standing at the very edge of the end of the tree shown below. I was not at all completely in the tree or leaves of it. Nor did I have my ghillie on at the time.
