The OFFICIAL thread for Weapon and Armour Builds
In game name J20Hawkz

Ok here it is. Let me make one thing clear i havent spent any real money ingame to get zen or what ever. Dont listen to people saying its "pay to win" i find that its the obvious "play to win". I went through every part in the game comparing stats on all parts to see how it affected spread aim, range, damage and recoil. With the assault rifle "I" personaly find that recoil is something that assault rifle must have as low as possible, without affecting damage or range. Submachine Guns should have almost near max damage with low spread as recoil on this gun is hardly noticeable. Bolt Action Rifles should also have close to max damage (200+ damage) with a decent scope and long range.

===================================================================

First off, This is the armour build I use: Its a custom 222hp build with 5 gear slots;

1. Heal Injector unlocked Lv 11
2. Frag Grenade Mk.1 unlocked at start of game
3. HE Grenade Mk.1 unlocked Lv 14
4. Proximity Mine Mk.1 unlocked Lv 18
5. Breach Hammer unlocked Lv 20

===================================================================

====Armour Build====

For the 222hp build I use the following

Helmet: Overmatch Bonebreaker BKR.a unlocked Lv 25

Chest: Overmatch Impact CQT unlocked Lv 25

Legs: ArmCom Piranha Z700 unlocked Lv 14

Camo: Ocean fury (because its the best looking free to get (no real money) camo in game)

===================================================================


====Assault Rifle Build (good damage, min spread aim + min recoil)====

I use the assault rifle like I would the burst fire rifle, but in some cases you can hold the trigger down long enough (even at range) to get the kill without the pain of the gun reticle moving so much. With this build I got almost every stat to the lowest you can with the current set of parts available.

There is one Stock however that reduces recoil further, the ARMCOM AC10 SHARP. However with this stock I'm gaining -0.13 recoil but all other stats for Spread AIM + HIP + MOVE are increased and range is decreased. That extra -0.13 in recoil i find doesnt make much of a difference, but if u want the max recoil on a assault rife go for it (unlocked Lv 30).

Enjoy XD

Name of Custom Build: Extended Tactical Stallion

Muzzle: Vulcan QDSS-9 (best low RECOIL muzzle in game) unlocked Lv 7

Barrel: ArmCom Elite X3-455 (best barrel for decreasing Spread AIM + HIP + MOVE, increasing RANGE, and also gives you that boost in DAMAGE) unlocked Lv 21

Magazine: Vulcan STD-04XL AR (extended magazine) unlocked Lv 12

Scope: OPRL Reflex-2 Holo (preference) unlocked Lv 15

Stock: Silverwood BRS Tactical (in my opnion the best stock for decreasing Spread AIM + HIP + MOVE, increasing RANGE, but mainly for lowering RECOIL by quite a bit) unlocked Lv 2

Camo: Ocean fury (because its the best looking free to get (no real money) camo in game)

Weapon Tag: Angry Fused Bomb (reduces recoil) unlocked via weapon tag level up packs

DAMAGE: 51 *
AMMO: 40/160
ZOOM: 2.00
SPREAD - AIM: 0.80 *
SPREAD - HIP: 2.29 *
SPREAD - MOVE: 4.15
FIRERATE: 650
RELOAD: 2.40S
SCOPE IN: 0.30S
RECOIL: 2.53 **
RANGE: 45/100 *
RUN: -0.25

MATHS TIME!!!

Your maybe thinking "only 51 damage.....pfffft" well if we did some simple maths you'll find that anything around more than 50 damage is kinda pointless in most cases.

Most people run around with 200hp (standard armour) or anywhere from 180-200hp (speed builds), on the odd occasion you might come across someone tanking 200hp plus. So if each bullet does....

50 damage : 200hp build : 50 x (4) = 200 = dead / 50 x (3) = 150 = alive
51 damage : 200hp build : 51 x (4) = 204 = dead / 51 x (3) = 153 = alive
52 damage : 200hp build : 52 x (4) = 208 = dead / 52 x (3) = 156 = alive
53 damage : 200hp build : 53 x (4) = 212 = dead / 53 x (3) = 159 = alive
54 damage : 200hp build : 54 x (4) = 216 = dead / 54 x (3) = 162 = alive
55 damage : 200hp build : 55 x (4) = 220 = dead / 55 x (3) = 165 = alive
(55 = Max damage on Assault rifle, without the Foiche MAG1 AR)

As you can see 50-55 damage 4 shots are going to get the job done on 200(+) guys and 3 shots no matter even max damage wont kill even the most speediest of players. So really 51 damage build with the stats i have works very well. A 53 damage build also is pretty good. I'll do a build for that one soon.

Overall rating of build: excellent overall build, armour build has good stamina and run plus you dont really need more than 220hp anyway. Works well with any weapon setup.

===================================================================

====Submachine Gun Build (High Damage, Medium Range, Low Spread)====

See screen pic below, i used this build in that game.

Name of Custom Build: Extended Tactical Contender

Muzzle: Vulcan R19 Rift (best damage muzzle in game) unlocked Lv 28

Barrel: Krane GX3 Heavy (best damage barrel in game) unlocked Lv 22

Magazine: Vulcan STD-04XL S (extended magazine) unlocked Lv 16

Scope: OPRL Reflex-2 Holo (preference) unlocked Lv 15

Stock: Vulcan ACP-3 Collapsible (in my opnion the best stock for decreasing Spread AIM + HIP + MOVE and increasing RANGE) unlocked Lv 28

Camo: Ocean fury (because its the best looking free to get (no real money) camo in game)

Weapon Tag: Hanging Dice (reduces spread) unlocked via weapon tag level up packs

DAMAGE: 47 * (MAX)
AMMO: 47/188
ZOOM: 2.00
SPREAD - AIM: 1.12 *
SPREAD - HIP: 2.25 *
SPREAD - MOVE: 2.40
FIRERATE: 750
RELOAD: 2.70S
SCOPE IN: 0.20S
RECOIL: 2.24 **
RANGE: 20/80 *
RUN: -0.15

After the JAN.01.2013 update the "once" dominant SMG with base damage 45 was sadly nerfed, giving it a base damage of a poor 40. However with this build I have managed to boost that damage stat right up, basically to where it used to be on most low spread, recoil builds.

Overall rating of build: excellent overall build, almost max damage, recoil isnt much of a problem on SMG anyway and very nice spread and range.

===================================================================

====Bolt Action Rifle (Max Damage, High Range)====

coming soon.....testing out various parts

I'll check the HAR out and get a build posted soon. Working on the bolt action rifle at the moment.
J20Hawkz Feb 4, 2013 @ 12:24pm 
Did a few games using the SMG build here are the results. All the SMG games where done today 04/02/2013. I think there is one AR pic aswell. Funny thing is after the game I was called a hacker/cheater/noob....I only had one thing to say. "thanks for the compliment" XD

I'll do a combat rifle build for you once I'm happy with my bolt action rifle. With combat rifles you really want to focus on three things very high damage, very low spread and long range. Give me a few days to do a build.

Been busy so havent managed to post any builds sorry guys. Sniper build is done I'll get that out as soon as possible, also combat rifle is almost done, and I'm planning on doing a wicked 53 damaged assault rifle build, currently running one at the moment and man this thing tears up people fast. Keep checking back.

Depends on what you're good at. If your aim sucks, but you're good at movement/positioning, mod your weapon first, as you'll probably need added weapon stabilty or damage more than you need custom armor. If your movement skills are not so good, but you're better at getting/keeping your crosshairs on target, armor will be your bigger need.

Though on the flipside, I've found there's nothing that pushes you to learn like deliberately nerfing your weakpoints.
