Best Class? Need Your Input

So I'm working on an article for our website called "10 Best Classes in Black Ops 2" and to complete our article, I need your input.

I know everyone has different play styles and my favorite class doesn't nessecarily have to work for you. But I'm trying to get a general idea of what classes people are using.

Could you reply below with what you think is the best class in Black Ops 2. Or in other words, your favorite class.








Thank you for taking the time to reply to this thread.

Silly article. There are no best classes.

People have to find what works for them. Its going to be different for everyone.

Edit: I agree with the post above me, but anyway, here are my best classes.

I've aready posted my main class setup in a lot of other threads, so I am actually going to show here one of my back-up classes.


SMG 1 (Named this one SMG P90TR, reference tothe good ol' P90 from COD4)

PDW57 Fast mags/Laser sight

KAP40 Akimbo


Cold Blooded

Ext. Conditioning


Concussion X1

Pretty good rushing class. I use it when I get bored of the next class. P90 PDW57 i useful for Medium range combat, KAP40 is useful in close range encounters. It i like they are made to be used togheter


SMG 2 (I named this class Yuyuko, and the weapon will have has cherry blossom camo on it. (Get it? No? AWWWWW... )

MSMC Laser Sight

NO secondary

Lightweight/Hardline or Flack Jacket (PERK 1 GREED)

Scavenger OR cold blooded

Ext. Conditioning/Dexetrity (PERK 3 GREED)

NO lethal

Concussion X1

UAV/CUAV (or Hunter Killer Drone)/Orb. VSAT

VERY good domination setup. You are imune to explosives, and can get to objectives quickly. Laser Sight helps since you don't have the luxury of aim while capping Domination points, and the concussion helps slowing down your opponnents.


Assault 2 (AR alternate)

TYPE25 Laser Sight/Stock/Silencer (PRIMARY GUNFIGHTER)

KAP40 Akimbo



Extreme Conditioning


Basically an SMG mentality with an Assault Rifle build. You may prefer the FAST MAGS instead of the silencer, but If you master Reload cancel like I do, there is no need for that, and I like the irons, so NO to Optics.

Here is my default SMG class. I use this setup on all of my SMGs.

Primary Weapon: Any SMG

Perk 1: Lightweight

Perk 2: Scavenger and Toughness

Perk 3: Dexterity and Engineer

Attachments: Fast Mags and Stock

You will need to dance around when you get into sticky CQB or dropshot. Stock helps a lot in this area.

My class for Plaza/Hijacked:

Perk 1: Ghost

Perk 1 Greed: Blind Eye

No Perk 2 Until I unlock Scavenger again

Perk 3: Tactical Mask

Perk 3 Greed: Dexterity

Lethal: Combat Axe

Tactical: EMP grenade

Gun: Tac .45

Attachment: Long barrel

It's a fun set up and really tests your aim.

I used to run a pistol only class on my second account which has now become my main. Tac 45 is a great pistol and I enjoyed running around and besting people with it. It will really test your accuracy and trigger finger.

I have a 30% accuracy with it.

My Run and Gun class:

Weapon: Submachine Gun (any works, but I favor the Vector or MSMC)

Attachment(s): Red Dot, Laser Sight

Perk(s): Perk 1: Blind Eye, Lightweight. Perk 2: Toughness. Perk 3: Extreme COndtioning, Dead Silence.

Lethal: None

Tactical: None

Scorestreaks: UAV, (counter UAV or Care Package), Lightning Strike

Wildcards: Perk 1 Greed, Perk 3 Greed

This class I use for HC TDM, TDM, and Kill Confirmed, generally anything game mode that doesnt require me to be trying to catch grenades.

I have a few more set up but this is my main class. My domination classes are pretty awesome too if I must say so myself. Which I am sure I am.

primary: MP7. attachments: rapid fire, FMJ, fast mag. wildcards: primary gunfighter, perk 1 greed.

perk1: hardline, ghost. perk2: scavenger. perk3: dexterity

no one seems to use or like the MP7 anymore but i think its quite good (though not as good as MW3) also the gun emblem is in a good place...for once
