Class 1 – One Shot, One Kill

The first class allows you to score one-shot kills more regularly.


  • FSS 24.0” Factory (Barrel)
  • G.I Mini Reflex (Optic)
  • FSS MK2 Precision Comb (Stock)
  • FMJ (Perk)
  • Granulated Grip Tape (Rear Grip)

The longer barrel increases bullet velocity and damage range, making it even more deadly at range. FMJ also makes it easier to take down enemies that are hidden behind a small amount of cover.


  • E.O.D (Perk 1)
  • Hardline (Perk 2)
  • Battle Hardened (Perk 3)

This is the current meta. Increased resistance to lethal and tactical equipment and one less kill to acquire the killstreaks of your choice.



  • Molotov Cocktail (Lethal)
  • Stun Grenade (Tactical)

Use the Molotov to draw out an enemy from their location, throw the stun to slow their movement and finish them off with a swift headshot. Simple but very effective.

Field Upgrades

  • Stopping Power Rounds

Reduce the chance of scoring a hitmarker by equipping stopping power rounds to increase the damage output.


  • Personal Radar (3 Kills)
  • Infantry Assault Vehicle (7 Kills)
  • Advanced UAV (12 Kills)

On the larger maps, the IAV is guaranteed to rack up kills. The advanced UAV is useful for the entire team too, with it revealing the direction of the opposition as well as their location.

Class 2 – Bolt-Action Beast

Class number two is the most versatile of the three, with all players of all styles able to excel with this loadout.


  • FSS 18.0” Factory (Barrel)
  • Viper Reflex Sight (Optic)
  • MK2 Ultralight Hollow (Stock)
  • Sleight of Hand (Perk)
  • Rubberized Grip Tape (Rear Grip)

This combination keeps recoil to a minimum while sleight of hand increases the reload speed meaning you can spend less time reloading and more time slaying the enemy!


  • Double Time (Perk 1)
  • High Alert (Perk 2)
  • Tracker (Perk 3)

High alert means you can still be aware of your surroundings when scoped in. Tracker allows you to get sneaky and follow an opponent up until the point you can take them down with a swift headshot.



  • Claymore (Lethal)
  • Decoy Grenade (Tactical)

Cover your back with a claymore to catch out any potential flankers. Use the decoy grenade as a great way to survey the scene without having to use a personal radar as a killstreak.

Field Upgrades

  • Tactical Insertion

Save the time sprinting halfway across the map by placing a tactical insertion in a place that is closer to the action.


  • Cluster Strike (5 Kills)
  • Emergency Airdrop (8 Kills)
  • Chopper Gunner (10 Kills)

Launch a barrage of mortars on a congested area of the map to scoop up some kills while the emergency airdrop adds an element of mystery in terms of what three killstreaks that you and your team could earn.

Class 3 – Unmatched Aggression

The third and final class is built with pure, unadulterated aggression in mind.


  • FSS 20.0” Factory (Barrel)
  • Tac Laser (Laser)
  • FFS MK2 Sport Comb (Stock)
  • Frangible – Wounding (Perk)
  • Stippled Grip Tape (Rear Grip)

Armed with the longest barrel, this is ideal for causing maximum damage at every possible range. Frangible wounding works great as the weapon perk, slowing down the enemy after the first hit, making them a sitting duck for the final blow.


  • Quick Fix (Perk 1)
  • Ghost (Perk 2)
  • Spotter (Perk 3)

Regenerate your health faster by securing kills and capturing objectives. Spotter is ideal to locate any enemy killstreaks or equipment that the enemy has laid down for you and your teammates.



  • Frag Grenade (Lethal)
  • Flash Grenade (Tactical)

It’s hard to go wrong with this combination of grenades. Use the frag to clear out tight areas and the flash to blind any opponent before taking them out.

Field Upgrades

  • Dead Silence

Navigate the map quickly and silently to get behind the enemy and score a number of kills quickly and efficiently.


  • Counter UAV (4 Kills)
  • Sentry Gun (7 Kills)
  • Support Helo (11 Kills)

The counter UAV is great to disorientate the enemy while a well-placed sentry gun can take down opponents in the blink of an eye.
