This can be a frustrating quest. The quest NPC will walk/run/sprint on a fixed path to the end of the mission periodically turning around to look for people following her.

Step 2: Use the trees to avoid her line of sight.
Step 3: Use the rocks for cover.
Step 4: Use the tree for cover, but watch for enemies in the area!
