I recently started using these amazing guns and was wondering what everyone's AR classes are. Mine is:
Any AR: Stock, Quickdraw, and Fast Mag. Perk 1: Hardline Perk 2: Toughness Perk 3: Extreme Conditioning Wildcard: Primary Gunfighter Lethal: Semtex Secondary: SMAW or FHJ
Stock is definitely incontrovertible. For me Fast Mag's utility varies by gun. The Type 25, for example, makes it almost essential, but the AN-94 or the SMR don't really need it--in the former case the reload animation is pretty short, and in the latter you just aren't reloading that often. Quickdraw I tend to go back and forth on, but tend to eschew it in favor of the Laser Sight or not use it at all, since the Laser Sight improves your game against Shotguns and SMG's if that's a concern. Suppressor is almost always good from what I've seen, especially since I tend to run Ghost.
I'd suggest using Flak Jacket over Hardline. To put it one way--what's better?--needing less points to get a scorestreak, or dying much less frequently? In objective game modes Flak Jacket becomes that much more essential, since it lets you shrug off grenades while planting a bomb or capturing a domination zone.
Finally, pistols in this game are beast. Taking down enemy aircraft is always a welcome addition to a team, but I really need to point out the way in which, for example, the B23R complements the SMR perfectly. And the Tac-45 is just a monster.
"But we, who name ourselves its sovereigns--we, Half dust, half deity, alike unfit to sink or to soar."
9/10 you'll find an AR on the ground with 3 good attachments on it.
6 Perks + Naked AR? Yes please. So stupid it works.
Flak + Hardline Toughness Dex + Tac Mask
Emp Frag Grenade (practicing with my throws and cooking times).
Scavenger is unnecessary because YOU SHOULDN'T SPAM C4 AND EMP GRENADES PRAYING FOR KILLS AND ASSISTS TOWARDS YOUR STREAKS. It's also unnecessary since I just pick up random weapons off the ground since I'm well versed in them all. If I pick up a weapon with 3 attachments (which is often), I now have a 14 point class.
