This build serves multiple purposes:
- DPS: DPS is surprisingly high with the First Wave X-45 pistol due to the Sentry 6 pc. buff
- Survivability: Strongest possible non-D3-FNC sheild with 30% damage resilience. This survivability enables the agent to face tank enemies while building stacks at close range.
- Support: Other agents benefit from the Sentry stacks, frequent crowd control via flashbang, and Tactical links that can be recharged quickly
- Back-up plan: In instances where the shield is taking too much damage or destroyed, the agent can take cover and switch to an MDR or SVD for sustained DPS
This build functions most effectively in group settings where the Support features shine.
