    Do you ever run anything other than Nanoweave? Why? and Explanation please.

    When I'm playing AV I wear flak armour. When I'm in a Valk squad I use the ammo pouch or whatever it's called.

    I run Adv Shields Cap + Resist it let me go back to fight faster that any other shield with Nanoweave... The only time I put it on is when I run Medic with Carapace and self heal...

    Because as infantry the main thing you'll encounter is infantry, so nanoweave is mandatory for two things :
    -give you advantage other guys that don't have it
    -allow you a fair fight against people who have it

    IMO, nanoweave armor should be removed because having you actually have no choice for the suit-slot since nanoweave is mandatory.
    Also, it make headshot far more effective than they should. If you have a 125dmg model weapon on shot a nanoweave target, you need 4 bullet to kill a guy in the head, while you need 10 for bodyshot. That's actually a 2,5 headshot ratio : skill should be rewarded but not that much.

    Nanoweave for all classes / all roles in my case. Partly because I am a bit lazy and it is one less thing to think about but mainly because the 20% damage reduction on everything from pistols to heavy machine guns at max rank is so useful. I frequently survive with health bar in the red after a shooting duel which means without nanoweave I'd be a goner.

    I'm not sure about that. I think you still get the nanoweave damage reduction on head shots although they do still count double.

    I use nanoweave but don't know which shield to cert into. The default one I've got maxed out but it doesn't seem to really help me much.

    No, I'm afraid not. Nanoweave doesn't affect headshots anymore since the PU2 nerf.

    Adrenaline Shield if you do a lot of killing.

    Resist shield if you are a more passive player who lets his shield recharge manually.

    Resist is nerfed. Adrenaline is a direct upgrade to default. But remembering to hit F after every kill is a bit annoying.
