Recommended Specialist

PROPHET

PROPHET

Reason For Recommendation

It is hard to predict where enemies are spawned and from where they will come from. PROPHET's Seeker Shock Mine is helpful for seeking enemies near you.

AJAX

AJAX

Reason For Recommendation

Around the capture area, enemies usually try to ambush you. AJAX's 9-Bang is a grenade that flashes and stuns enemies in the explosion area. Throw it to the area of capture so that it would be easier to charge in.

TORQUE

TORQUE

Reason For Recommendation

TORQUE can deploy Razor Wire in the areas for capture and distract enemies. Enemies can come from all directions in this game mode and so deploying Razor Wire can limit the direction where enemy can come from

Recommended Weapon

ICR-7 (Assault Rifle)

Titan

Reason For Recommendation

When the map has wider areas, ICR-7 is recommended. ICR-7 works great as it has high accuracy and fire rate among assault rifles.

GKS (SMG)

Titan

Reason For Recommendation

When map is comparatively narrow, GKS is recommended. GKS has high fire rate and a big mag size, so it can let you combat against enemies in succession. Also, thanks to its high accuracy among SMGS, you can even aim at enemies in mid-range.

Recommended Perk

Cold Blooded

Reason For Recommendation

You will have less chances to die with this perk. With Cold blooded your resistance gets higher to enemy ability like equipment and Scorestreaks. Also, you will not be targeted by enemy score streaks.

Ghost

Reason For Recommendation

As you are undetectable by enemy UAV, Ghost perk can protect you from enemy Scorestreaks. In Multiplayer mode, scorestreaks are often used and this perk is must-have.

Light Weight

Reason For Recommendation

As the capture area could be located far away from your respawn point, moving faster across the map is important. Light Weight helps you move faster while sprinting!

Hardpoint Mode - Gameplay Tips

Go With Your Allies When Capturing Areas

Since enemies ambush you when you try to capture areas, you cannot just cease them alone. Cooperate with your allies and overwhelm ambushes.

Move Little & Ambush After Capturing Areas

When capturing an area, you do not need to stay in to keep it captured. So, move a bit away from the area and ambush. Don't make noise so you won't be detected by sensors of enemies.

Do Not Repeat Same Actions For Capturing

When you fail to capture an area and get killed, your enemies will think you will come back for revenge. So, they will check the same area where you may most likely come in. Due to this, avoid repeating going the same path and try to betray enemies expectations.
