  • Base Perk 1: Bomb Squad
  • Base Perk 2: Double Time
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Bird’s-Eye
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence & Munitions Box

Coming to our choice of Perks, we went with Bomb Squad as our first Base Perk so that you can detect enemy explosives. Double Time is our second Base Perk and it increases the sprint duration for greater mobility.

When it comes time to pick your Bonus Perk in the middle of the game, we recommend selecting Fast Hands so that the weapon reloads faster. Bird’s Eye reveals the enemy’s UAV and Radar pings.

The Semtex can be used to dish out additional damage to multiple opponents, and Flash Grenades will blind enemies so that you can finish them off.

Taking Dead Silence and the Munitions Box for your Field Upgrade will allow you to sneak around and top up your ammo when needed.
