Just gonna summarize my choices
- LVOA-C; Chose this over m4 since I like its straighter recoil.
- Bullfrog; Ok just because this is a high firearms build doesnt mean it needs to use The House, I generally prefer the frog's higher RPM and also its near identical damage to the LVOA. Now you can swap it out for a House but this is personal preference.
Sawed Off: For third talent, which has determined.
My actual gear:
Its a 3pc banshee 2pc FM with barrets vest and tenacious. The FM is for the extra EDR from the 2pc bonus, which should at the least mitigate predator bleed. The ideal use case is when you have to medkit (to heal), you can also give yourself an extra damage boost if you use the booster shot, which gives you a damage bonus on top of what you will receive from Barrets vest. Its a very squishy build since I personally like alot of crit damage, even going for it on the kneepads. You can however roll crit damage for health if you want more sustain and honestly it wouldnt make much of a difference.
Tactical Scanner: Using this over scrambler because I have found that not many people use it, also it gives a damage bonus to scanned targets. So in theory you could stack damage in this way:
10% damage from pulse (iirc)
10% from booster
10% from tenacious
10% Out of cover damage from banshee
8% AR/SMG damage from 3pc pred (optional, swap barret and FM for 2pc pred)
So overall you can potentially get up to a 48% bonus if you stack EVERYTHING. So yeah. Now on to why I use booster: Free damage bonus/resilience
Critical save and Strike Back are there for obvious reasons. I use percision since it gives a 12.5% CHC and 22.5% CHD pulse, which can be very helpful at times. On The Move could be swapped for Adrenaline since you are not always going to kill a player while moving. So it could help when fighting pred.
