Best/Favorite HC match set up

I dont play a lot of Hardcore mode but since the last few Friday night Clan Ops have been hardcore events I thought I would try and see what people like guns, perks, etc.


I've heard Assasin is a must but I really dont use it much in core.  Just trying to get some helpful hits.


I really dont want this thread to debate which is better core or hardcore.  I'd just like to see what people are using for Hardcore set ups?

    Im currently using the ACR which is the best HC assault rifle. It's minimum damage is 30 so its always 1 hit kill no matter how far the enemy is, only other weapons to have this ability are snipers, LMGs, and the MK14. I use impact on it so enemies behind cover are taken out easily. For attachment I switch between silencer if im playing more agressive, and ACOG or hybrid sight if im feeling more campy.


    My secondary is an MP9, I rarely pull it out and use it just for its 75% sprint bonus.

    Leathal: Claymore, Tactical: Smoke.


    Perks: Extreme conditioning, Assassin, Dead Silence.


    I only play hardcore search and destroy so my setup is best for that game mode. If i am playing something else or dont feel like going try hard I change the ACR for a SPAS-12 or AA-12 with range.

    ACR w/ kick and silencer



    Trophy system/any

    blind eye


    Dead Silence/ sitrep pro (sitrep is really nooby now, so I would avoid using it, unless you don't mind the hatemail, lolz)


    Support packae- UAV and Ballistic vests, nothing else.






    That is my best/favorite class and I gurantee that you'll like it.

    Any gun with Silencer


    Sticky Grenade

    Trophy System


    Blind Eye


    Dead Silence


    UAV/Preditor Missle/Airstrike


    -On HC, most players use Blind Eye so its best to use KS that you can control.

    -On Smaller Maps like Dome and Hardhat, Recon is so wonderful.

    -Be aware of Ballistic Vest on HC. Just keep shooting until they are dead. Don't just assume 2 bullets and run away.

    -Always be moving! Campers will get eaten by Noobtubes. With dead silence on, you will sneak up on quite a few campers and get easy kills.
