E.O.D. Hacks Claymores & C4

Getting blown up by Claymore a lot? Hack Claymores, Proximity Mines, and C4 with E.O.D by going behind them. Taking less non-killstreak explosion damage also may help you survive such attacks.

Keep Up The Fight With Scavenger

For weapons with high fire rate, running out of ammo mid-killstreak is a real concern. Replenish ammo from your kills with Scavenger to keep the streak moving without the fear of going dry.

Recover Faster For Doing What You Always Do

Conditions that trigger the Quick Fix perk are: killing players, capturing objectives, and holding objectives. These are what you do most of the time during a match. Heal faster for doing nothing other what you normally should be doing!

1 Killstreak Cost Could Be Huge

Hardline perk lowers your Killstreak cost by 1, which could be the difference between getting a sweet sweet Infantry Assault Vehicle, or going back to spawn empty-handed. It also greatly lowers the bar for Personal Radar to just 2 kills to use.

All Killstreak List

Also Helps With Specialist Perk

Hardline also reduces the requirement for specialist perks (see below) to take effect. In other words, you only need 1 kill to activate your first specialist perk!

Avoid Digital Surveillance With Ghost

UAVs and personal radars are the easiest killstreaks to obtain, meaning that they will frequently give your position away. Hide your presence from them with the Ghost Perk.

Extra Lethal Can Be Handy

Who can say no to another Lethal Equipment? Having 2 Molotov Cocktails, 2 C4s, or 2 Claymores will greatly increase your tactical options.

Stop Kill Markers Of your Kills With Tracker

Tracker perk lets you see enemy tracks, giving you a heads-up on where they can potentially be. The biggest advantage however is being able to hide the death markers of your kills, thus not alerting the enemy team of your wherabouts.

Perks That Provide Benefits Instantly

You've should have made your perk build already, so choose specialist perks that provide some kind of benefits instantly, or boost your defenses.

Avoid Assigning Essential Build Perks As Specialist Perks

Don't put perks that are essential to your build into Specialist Perk slots, as this will make the build unreliable. For example, don't put Ghost perks into your Specialist perk slot when you're making a stealth build hoping it would work.

Why does it not say what the specialist bonus is? I had to look for so long to find out that it rewards you with all perks.

Overkill should be in the second perks like it used to be because there’s nothing else I like there anyways.
