Hardline - Best Combo Options
Best Perk Combo Options
|Overkill||Carry Two primary weapons.||Perk 1|
|Scavenger||Resupply ammo from dead players.||Perk 1|
|Amped||Faster weapon swap and rocket launcher reload speed.||Perk 3|
|Tracker||Enemies leave behind a footprint trail. See markers at enemy death locations.||Perk 3|
Increase Offensive Capabilities
The Overkill perk allows you to equip two different primary weapons in your loadout. This helps you create more versatile loadouts to ready yourself for several different combat situations and get more kills!
Keep Yourself Stocked
Nothing is more frustrating than running out of ammos during heated fights! The Scavenger perk resupplies your ammos from fallen players, allowing you to get more kills, and earn better killstreaks!
Complement Overkill With Amped
If you have the Overkill perk equipped, you can also opt to choose the Amped perk in order to allow for faster weapon swaps. Since swapping between two primary weapons is slow, Amped allows you to get to your next weapon faster.
Track Down Enemies
Tracker is a must-have perk if you are playing aggressively. You will be able to track down enemies and rack up the kill count to earn more killstreaks!
Best Equipment Combo Options
|Frag Grenade||Cookable fragmentation grenade.||Lethal|
|Semtex||Timed sticky grenade.||Lethal|
|Throwing Knife||Retrievable knife that is lethal on impact.||Lethal|
|Stim||Military stimulant that cauterizes combat wounds and refreshes Tactical Sprint||Tactical|
Focus On Offense With Lethals
Lethals that deal a substantial amount of damage are recommended when equipping the Hardline perk. Lethals such as the Frag Grenade, Semtex, and Throwing Knife can easily kill enemies if thrown correctly.
Survive Longer With Stim Tactical
The Stim is the perfect Tactical equipment to have with Hardline. Since Killstreaks require you to stay alive while getting kills, equip the Stim Tactical equipment for some much needed sustain!
