I'm not going to lie, when running some of my specialist classes I think of moab especially after a 15+ streak. However majority of the time I'm only looking to earn Marksman as my first unlock to compliment Stalker. Imo them two perks are OP when paired
which (I'm going to say it!) are OP. A lot of people do use specialist and don't intend to get a MoaB, so they maybe be looking for similar perk combinations that aren't available as standard. What do you use for your specialist loadout? Is it MoaB hunting
or a perk combination that compliments your playstyle? I'd like to add the advantage you get by using specialist shows the standard tier 1-3 perks are pretty balanced imo.
I use specialist mainly to help me stay alive though I admit, getting a moab would be a nice thing as well. I find getting longer killstreaks so much easier with specialist. All I get with assault/support are UAVs, counter UAVs and predator missiles and
then I'm dead. I like using scavenger as my 2nd specialist reward, 1st and 3rd one depend on my class. I just hate it when all the weapons you find and have to use without scavenger are just snipers or secondaries.
^^^ Yeah that's why I use scavenger for my primary loadout, I can't stand going to pick up a weapon and it's a Fiddy cal without kick or anything. A lot of the time if I have picked a weapon up I've often got killed doing it, so that's why I just run scavenger
on everything except shotguns or on the MP5 which I don't really have any intentions of getting a MoaB with, I just like a few extra perks.
There are 4 things I like with my classes that I mix & match with: speed, stealth, awareness, & survivability. For speed I use either extreme conditioning or sleight of hand, quickdraw, & either steady aim or stalker. For stealth I use blind eye, assassin,
& dead silence. For awareness I use recon & sitrep, usually with hardline. For survivability I use scavenger, blast shield, & marksman.
I'll usually use any of the 3 perks listed above & use another 3 for the specialist strike package. So, this gives me several wonderful combinations:
- speed & stealth
- speed & awareness
- speed & survivability
- stealth & awareness
- stealth & survivability
- awareness & survivability
I usually use certain perk & specialist strike package combinations depending on the size of the map. For example, speed & stealth might be better suited for smaller, close-range maps whereas survivability & awareness might be more useful on larger, more
