Overkill Perk Multiplayer Tips

Equip Weapons At Loadout First

Usually, a player can only carry 1 primary weapon and 1 secondary / launcher weapons. Go to the loadout and equip Overkill Perk first, then you can choose to equip 2 primary weapons.

Don't Forget to Update Attachments!

Your primary weapons may need some attachment update to fit your new builds, like adding lasers to your now designated close quarter weapons that was your battle rifle before. Remember to update attachments!

Great For Pursuing Versatile Builds

Overkill is useful for modes and maps that has evolving tactical requirements, like having you charge across an open plains to take a warehouse. You can carry a sniper rifle for spotting and then switch over to a Assault rifle when you need to breach a building.

Choose Between Stealth, Utility, Or Defense

Choose between stealth, utility, or defense for your perk 2 slot. Ghost hides your presence while Restock lets you recharge equipment, and High Alert alerts you of enemy contact.

Faster Weapon Switch With Amped

Primary weapons takes longer to swap out and use. Longer swap speed could kill the versatility with having 2 primary weapons, so Amped perk makes a good choice when picking Overkill.
