What is best complete setup and in which order do you put your perks for specialist as a sniper?

  • Re: Specialist

    Anytime I use a sniper its BE/AS/MM then my unlocks are QD/SH/HL but tbh I'm not the best of snipers so my setup probably reflects that.

    If you are really sniping then start with assassin, scavenger, and marksman. Then specialist use blind eye, quickdraw, sleight of hand... ?

      Yes to clarify, Im not looking for a QSing set up. I really have little experience in using the specialist class as I love streak stcking the 5-9-12 Assault, but now that Im close to 20th prestg, Im thinking of MOABs.  I get a little confuse as to where to put the hardline perk in the rotation. 6th perk, or 4th? Do 2 assists that add together as one kill count towards MOAB?  I generally like to start with Scav pro, but if I make it a specialist perk, do you get the extra starting ammo afterwards? Have many questions

        Best to put Hardline as the 3rd specialist perk.  You still unlock your specialist bonus after 7 kills, but you have a more combat effective perk from the get go.  2 assists do count as one kill towards your MOAB streak.  It's been demonstrated that it is actually possible to get an all assist MOAB.  If you unlock scavenger as one of your specialist perks you will be able to replenish your ammo capacity to the levels that scavenger allows, but you won't be given the extra ammo by default as the perk unlocks.

    My setup is usually SoH QD Sitrep and then I run support with a UAV and a ballistic vest. You could run CUAV to stop the UAV spam on the other team (CUAV actually blocks UAVs always, even when the enemy can see the radar due to Assassin pro) with the added benefit that now they can't see your teamates either.
