Just started using the Specialist Strike Package, and I must say...Why didn't I start using this earlier!!! It's soooooooo good! I like using Extreme Conditioning --> Blind Eye --> Assassin.

What are your thoughts on Specialist and which perks do you like to use?

Specialist excels with shotguns

For shotguns it gives you the ability to have both RANGE and DAMAGE on. allowing you to one shot kill 75percent further. Plus you get melee, speed, and all those other goodies.

thanks for the tip! I'll try it out. Right now I'm using it with the L86. I mow people down with it. Only down side is that I move really slow. Wish we still had the "Lightweight" perk lol

The specialist perk does not work for Impact, Damage, Breath, and (obviously) Attachments on any weapon.

Although when you get 8 kills in a row and get specialist bonus (7 with hardline), you do get Kick, Focus, Melee, Range and Stability. You also get Speed if you're using an LMG, Sniper or Riot Shield.

It's also worth letting you know that the Pro versions of the perks will only be used in Specialist Bonus if you have unlocked them.

I use specialist on all classes of mine. I do not use assault or support.

thanks! I didn't know that I got speed if I used an LMG, that's good to know. I run my specialist class with SoH Pro, Hardline Pro, and Sitrep as my normal perks.

When I get the speciallist bonus, all the perks are activated right?

Yep. Even perks you don't have unlocked are activated.

PS If you're running specialist on a shotgun class. Always put on damage since it'll give you range. But not damage.
