There are many reasons I have titled this the Versatile Defense Build. For starters, it can be used in both PvE and PvP. It can be used solo or in a group. It is tank while not lacking damage.
The overall appeal of this build is that you can mix and match different pieces where you see fit. You can swap Ammo Cache Station for Flashbang (or EMP) to help with cooldowns and managing ammo. Or, swap Survivor for Recovery and give your team even longer damage mitigation.
This build can farm Resistance with ease, it can manhunt in a group, or it can just help a weaker team get through some tough Legendaries.
