  • Lethal: Drill Charge

For Perks, we went with Double Time to sprint for longer durations and Overkill to equip another primary weapon for close-range fights, like the Lachmann Sub or VEL 46. Fast Hands makes it easy to switch between the two quickly.

The Ghost Perk keeps you off enemy radars, allowing you to get the drop on foes. When it comes to Equipment, you can use Flash Grenades to disorientate foes, and Drill Charges can flush enemies out from behind the cover.
