This loadout is probably the best for newcomers to the series. The SVA 545 is generally a reliable gun and is a great alternative to the M4. The attachments emphasize what’s best about the SVA 545, which is the damage, range, and accuracy. As for the equipment, you’re going to be moving around a lot and because of the accuracy, getting a lot of kills. Mission Control Comlink is the highlight here in that it allows you to get a kill streak reward for one less kill per streak. If you’re going mowing down enemies with efficiency, you’ll see this perk come up more often than none.

The beauty of this loadout is the speed. The DG-58 is my favorite burst-fire weapon. It’s really easy to get in headshots. To get the most out of how fast it downs the enemy, consider using the Mission Control Comlink. The faster you take out enemies, the quicker you can call in a kill streak reward. On top of that, while the weapon itself is good at short range, the Gunner Vest allows you a secondary that isn’t a pistol. So as you’re running around or getting suppressed, the shotgun can one-shot anyone keeping you down. 

BAS-B Loadout

BAS-B Attachments

  • Barrel: Short 8” Bruen SZ-45 Barrel
  • Optics: FSS Spectre Microstherm
  • Rear Grip: STT88 Grip
  • Magazine: 30 Rounds
  • Underbarrel: Chewk Angled Grip

BAS-B Equipment

  • Secondary: COR-45
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade 
  • Field Upgrade: Comm Scrambler 
  • Gloves: Ordnance Gloves
  • Boots: Climbing Boots
  • Gear 1: Bone Reduction Headset
  • Gear 2: Tac Mask

This one is all about being sneaky and quick. I don’t pick battle rifles as much as they’re somewhat limited, but if the enemy can’t hear or see you, why not use a battle rifle? I suggest fighting at a medium distance because the range does fall off for the BAS-B. However, if you play right by using the Bone Reduction Headset which makes you quiet, and Smoke Grenade, it’ll be hard to anticipate your attack. Tac Mask can make you immune to some lasting effects. You can fight better if you’ve got things to negate most attacks.
