If the enemy notices you, then try to quickly hide behind some kind of cover, for example, a column or a box, so that the soldier cannot kill you with a shotgun. Then wait until he approaches you and fires two shots. When you hear the sound of reloading, immediately run out of cover, hit the enemy 1-2 times with a shovel or a road sign, and then hide again.
