For Dodging while using a weapon like a rifle, then press L2 and Square. Your character will jump in the direction you are moving, and lie down for a while. For example, if an enemy is shooting from the right, you can press the key combination to dodge on the extreme right and save yourself from an incoming bullet attack. The same controls for Xbox are LT+X.

You can use this in the story as well in online mode, but remember that once you do this the character will dodge and then take some seconds to get back on his feet.
