Shrapnel Multiplayer Tips
Best For Defensive and Aggressive Playstyles
The Shrapnel Perk works best with either defensive or aggressive playstyles as it provides you with an additional lethal. You can use this for an extra mine to cover another side of your position, or for an extra grenade to lob at enemy positions.
Greater Coverage With Extra Lethals
The added extra Lethal equipment allows you to blanket a large area with explosives, guaranteeing a larger chance to damage or eliminate the enemy.
Shrapnel Perk - Best Combo Options
Best Perk Combo Options
|E.O.D.||Take reduced damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire. Hack enemy Claymores, Proximity Mines, and C4.||Perk 1|
|Restock||Recharge equipment over 30 seconds.||Perk 2|
E.O.D. For Additional Protection
E.O.D. protects you from explosions done by any source except killstreaks. It helps you survive from enemy grenades, and also provides a little bit of protection against misthrows.
Restock 1 Equipment Every 30 Seconds
Equip Restock Perk to have your equipments restock every 30 seconds. Lethals & Tacticals have no way of reliably refilling themselves aside from this perk, so make sure to equip this skill to make better use of the Shrapnel Perk.
Best Equipment Combo Options
|Frag Grenade||Cookable fragmentation grenade.||Lethal|
|Claymore||Proximity-activated explosive mine.||Lethal|
|Molotov Cocktail||Improvised incendiary device that explodes on impact.||Lethal|
|Stun Grenade||Slows victim's movement and aiming||Tactical|
|Gas Grenade||Explodes on impact with the ground, releasing a lingering cloud of tear gas that causes slowed movement, blurred vision, and coughing||Tactical|
Defend Your Position With An Additional Claymore
The additional Claymore provided by the Shrapnel Perk allows you to cover an additional direction. Pretty useful if you're planning on defending or hunkering down.
Combo With Tacticals
Tacticals such as the Stun and Gas Grenades help in slowing down and delaying enemy movement, making the enemies easy targets for your lethal equipment.
