Keep Bullet Close
Bullets core mechanical purpose in Blair Witch is to alert you when enemies are around, therefore you need to make sure you order him to remain close to you so he is never out of your sight. Since you can only take a couple of hits during combat before dying, being able to rapidly dispatch these monsters when you encounter them is critical.
Use the Night Vision Camera
When you reach chapter 3 you will get a night vision camera which you can replace the flashlight with. Using the camera will give you a wider range of vision and enable you to see things in the darkness that you won't be able to see using the flashlight

Scattered throughout the game are a series of Red Tapes which when found will allow you to manipulate reality and move the plot. These tape found by Bullet will also give you useful information related to the missing boys disappearance.
