What is your Perk 3?

Highwayman0226

     I've used the Tactical Mask a few times.  This thing is pretty good.  Shock charges have no effect on you, flash and concussions don't seem to do anything.  It's a pretty good perk for a rusher that like to get behind enemy lines, or someone that likes to gaurd an objective that gets a lot of nades tossed at it.

 

     Engineer is what I generally run.  This thing is outstanding.  Strap on 2 EMP or Black Hats and you are golden.  It's nice being able to see all the Betties and Claymores around the map, but Engineer also allows you to run through them.  When a guy is gaurding his back with a claymore, you can destroy it or hack it, sure, but now he knows you are there.  Just rhino charge through his equiptment and put 3 in the back of his head before he knows you are there.  With Engineer, you can also "reroll" your/teammates care packages.  This is pretty good for those of us to still run care package.  You have a chance to change that UAV into an Escort Drone.

    i use engineer and dexterity most

    I use Dexterity and/or Tactical Mask.

     

    Dexterity is so useful its ridiculous that it is the first perk you get in that slot. And as you say TM is great, can save you from a lot of deaths.

     

    I have tried engineer out a little, bouncing betties are making me want to throw my controller through my tv atm so i may start to use it more.

     

    Apparently if you have a really good headset Awareness will allow you to actually hear enemy player footsteps. They probably should buff this so that it works no matter what sound output your using. The fact it is unlocked so late, i would expect it to be very good but i havent run with that much either.

    I love rerolling my teammates care packages without their permission. I usually give them something better, but I laugh when they get screwed.

    On my capping classes (for Dom, or for planting in Demo), I run tactical mask.  Makes it much easier to get past shock charges on the way to the objective & avoid being stun-killed once I'm there.

     

    On my anti-turret class I run Engineer so I can see exactly where my target is.

     

    On my rushing classes I run both Extreme Conditioning and Dexterity.  Combined with Lightweight this makes flanking & getting into spawns a breeze, and saves my butt when I round a corner & run into an enemy who didn't expect me to be there so quickly.

     

    At some point I'm going to try out the awareness perk + messing with the audio settings to see if it actually helps me hear footsteps, but I haven't yet.

    Engineer, dexterity, tactical mask.

    Perk 3 Greed with Dexterity and Engineer for the most part. I like using dead silence but it's pretty useless for the most part.

    All classes except 2 I have extreme conditioning so I can sprint for tags. Other two classes I have engineer so I can flop care packages and hack enemy equipment.

    I use Lightweight + Ghost & Dexterity + Engineer.

     

    The best combo in my book so far

  • Re: What is your Perk 3?

    This game seems to favour hip firing with a laser attatchment so dexterity really helps..

     

    Try this class for rushing, flanking..

     

    SMG off choice, Laser and silencer

    Perk 1 - flak jacket

    Perk 3 - Dexterity + tac mask

     

    You have 3 points left to use.. personally i dont use equipment so i would take another 2 perks or a third attachment and scavanger..

     

    With this setup you can run in there, get your gun ready instantly and you dont need to worry about that shock charge sitting next to the bouncing betty cos neither will stop you..

    • Re: What is your Perk 3?

           Right on, I'll give this a go tonight.  You don't find ghost needed for flanking?  Many times I'm trying to flank, I see a guy spawn, go around a corner.  Hear "Hostile UAV above" and 3 of em do a 180.  Also an interesting choice of Flak Jacket over Lightweight.  I understand though, lightweight will likely get you through the betties fast enough, but the claymores will probably still get ya. 

      • Re: What is your Perk 3?

        There are quite a few perks in this game that fall into the 'garbage' catagory in my book.. Ghost is right in there.. but if you think and find you do better with it on... use it.

      • Re: What is your Perk 3?
        Harv72

        Ghost in its present form is still vastly overrated.  If you know the enemy has a UAV up and can see you coming, you can actually use that to your advantage.  If you're running Lightweight (and especially LW with Extreme Conditioning) you'll still arrive faster than they expect you to & have the element of surprise (or be able to escape & re-flank them from another direction).  If you're using something else in tier 1, understand that they may see you coming and do something to either change up the timing of the engagement or otherwise catch them off guard.

    I've been using Engineer a lot at the start of the game, but I started using Flak jacket instead so that cancels out the need for engineer. Now I use Tac Mask, as I was getting really mad because of those stupid shock charges everywhere (seriously, the one who thought those would be a good idea to put in the game needs to be fired from treyarch ASAP) and ridiculously powerful stuns. Obviously, Dead Silence is a must in SnD, but I don't use it in other gamemodes like Hardpoint, as you can't hear anything anyway because of all the nades and everyone constantly running around.

    Extreme Conditioning on every Class - guess I like to run around.

     

     

     

  • Re: What is your Perk 3?

    Tack Mask + Extreme Conditioning = run around and not get slowed down by shock charges.

     

    Engineer + EC = run around the shock charges (and other stuff), and can change care packages

     

    both are what I run

  • Re: What is your Perk 3?
    Quenten-C

    Definitely tactical mask, I feel so weird playing without it.

  • Re: What is your Perk 3?

    Most often Eng & EC or just Eng.

     

    Those 50 pointers add up pretty damn fast.

  • Re: What is your Perk 3?

    Dexterity since i want to have an even edge if I feel as if I'm lagging, or run with EC, since I feel super slow without it.

  • Re: What is your Perk 3?

    dexterity on lmg's, tactical mask or nothing on everything else.

  • Re: What is your Perk 3?

    dexterity + quickdraw = winning

  • Re: What is your Perk 3?

  • Re: What is your Perk 3?

    I use Engineer together with Black Hats.

    depending on type of class i use all except tac mask, really should start using that thou haha

     

    Just wanted to add, love sound whoring, MW3 was good fun for it, Awareness n dead silence were useless in this n was really disappointed. At least initially i was =) having sound settings on headset (which u would think would be the best choice if u have a headset) couldnt hear bugger all footsteps or battle chatter or anything even when the enemy was behind me. Changed sound setting to supercrunch, lowered voice volumes n turned up game volume n played with settings on my headset n now it works a treat. instead of just loud footsteps in general like MW3 with sitrep pro, the terrain the enemy in running on, n if they r in fact running or walking, make big differences. On maps with hard surfaces footsteps r a lot quieter than compared to Turbine which they r very clear,
    on the right map, it can be very handy. =)

  • Re: What is your Perk 3?

    Tactical mask on most occassions. Either combined with others or by itself, often combined with extreme conditioning. I looked at which perk I miss the most when it is not equipped. Am no soundwhore and there aren't many of them around atm due to the crappy game settings so that rules out two perks. I'll sooner end up missing tactical mask than one of the remaining perks. If I do need one of those, I have a class available where I combined them with tactical mask. Domination takes up about 90% of my gaming, it is definately a must have in there.

    3rd perk:

     

    I'll start a match with just Dexterity. If the match calls for it, I have 2 more classes with the same gun&attachment loadout, but with:

     

    Dexterity+Engineer

    or

    Tactical Mask+Engineer

     

     

     

    Having the extra class slots that come with prestiging is really important with this pick-10 system.
