He means the other soldiers in your platoon like Polonsky, etc. Stand near them or behind them when attacking so they take the charges before you. That way your not the first one that gets taken down and have a chance to react.
Thanks for posting these replies btw, I was having the same issue. Played it through without trainer to try the game but am using it now to collect the cards easier and having that happen at Shuri was getting annoying.
The Death Card cheats? If that's what you meant then no. It's already taken into account by the game designer to work without any mess up's. It's usually only 3rd party cheats such as trainer's that can cause that to happen.
