    The tutorial is indeed rubbish and doesn't expose any of the really crucial mechanics. Lots of those mechanics interact with each other. Take heat management. The tutorial does teach you that you need to manage your heat and can shut off individuals weapons to do so. But it doesn't explain how different types of movement can influence your heat. If you sprint, you will dissipate less heat than if you just walk. If you use your jump jets, you'll dissipate even less (and if you do a really long jump it may even add heat). Only when this stuff really clicks with you can you start to use terrain to your advantage and so on.
