The thing I hate about guides like this is it suggests there is only one effective way to play the game. Thankfully this game isn't a full on MMO where raid leaders are inspecting your gear and build to make sure you are 'meta'. For instance my loadout suggestions are the opposite of yours: Ability: Nano Armor Cloak because the distance cloak actually helps, is a distance most players are too ****** to kill you from. However being able to cloak in CQC while being shot at, and not shimmer, thus instantly shaking your attacker is priceless. Also good for pizza deliveries. Suit: Flak armor or Grenade Bandolier Tool: Motion Spotter, be a team player! Grenade: EMP (ok ok this one is undeniably OP) Utility: Proxy mines, for the lulz! Implant: Regeneration, because you are using Lulz Mines! Weapon: ANY SMG, none of them are that different from each other. Go for Auraxiums, kid! Then you can sport a slick Directive SMG. Side arm: If you are using a low capacity smg; pistol. If you are using a high capacity smg; crossbow. Strategies: Run in and shoot teh bad guis! If someone shoots at you, cloak and run 10 feet to the left or right, aim at who shot at you, uncloak and fire. Nano cloak means that when you cloak while bullets are hitting you you don't turn into a bright white neon ghost. If you see lots of enemies, run in and give them a pizza! =D they will surely invite you to their camping party! If you see a max, give him 2 pizzas! And a EMP granola so he doesn't get constipated! Those fat bastards sure can eat! Oh! and if you die, don't cry. Crying is for heavies! Respawn and be happy because now you have another belt full of emp grenades and mines to do the above all over again! Don't forget to set down a motion spotter (must be maxed to be worth anything, hope you got 2k certs!) so you can see where the bad guis are and which way they are facing. Advanced tactics: Cloak before you slice a corner. Crouch immediately, aim, uncloak and fire. Crouching causes you to go into deep cloak, which will confuse a enemy who saw a ghost pop out from the corner a moment ago and then just vanished. "Maybe he went back, maybe I lost sight of him mayb- AH oh **** there he uiehfiusfhdhsf dead. " Moar advanced: If you play this game more then a week you really should spend some money on it and the best thing you can buy is a good camo (or keep being a dirty welfare gamer, idc). Good camo > cloak most of the time. All of my advice regarding nano armor cloak assumes you already have a good camo or 2. Anyway that's my 2 certs, hope it helps!
