Black Ops 3: What's Your Fave Classes?

Not unlocked enough yet to establish my favourite weapon. I initially liked the ICR-1 for literally one game, but then found it far too tame. You seem to have to pump a lot of ammo in to get a kill.

Some vital perks to me are: Quick Draw, Sixth Sense (although it can freak you out a bit sometimes), awareness.

Normally like a silencer on the weapon, but I think it does cause some Nerf, but being off the radar is my preference.

I'm only level 26 so don't have everything unlocked, but here's my preferred class set up.

Primary - Either VMP or KN44 depending on the map. I've had the most sucess with these two weapons. They seem the most consistent in their relative categories.

Attachments - I pretty much use a red dot on all my weapons although it's not essential with the VMP as it's got decent iron sights. Due to my low gun levels I also run grip to help with any recoil and quickdraw grip to help with ads times.

Secondary - Blackcell. 4 rockets to shoot down enemy uavs and air support is a great for earning points and helping your team.

Perk 1 - sixth sense. Lost count how many times this has alerted me to an enemy and given me time to react.

perk 2 - fast hands. A crutch perk imo.

Perk 3 - awareness. Essential if you have a headset as footsteps are insanely loud

Lethal - trip mine. Place on the wall in a doorway or high traffic area and this gets you a kill pretty much every life.

Tactical - concussion. Gives you a bit more reach if your using an SMG. Throw in a room or around a corner to check for hit markers.

Killstreaks - UAV, CUAV (when I unlock at L27) and care package. The UAVs help you and your team. You also get assist points for kills your team make easily taking you to your care package and the chance to get a big streak.

Specialist - Battery with War Machine. Great for flushing out enemies and gets a few extra kills each time it's available.

Thanks, it's a great little perk. I've heard many people say that it's better than ghost (unfortunately I haven't unlocked it yet).

I can't wait until I unlock ghost. I wish I prestiged it now.

There are so many uavs up, and even on my silent class, with silencer and dead silence and blast suppressor, it's almost pointless without ghost.

I only really play free for all.

Vesper is lethal in close quarters maps like combine. Basically slices opponents in half.

I haven't unlocked it yet but I'm gonna run both dead silence and awareness and I'll be invincible - sound is so vital in free for all, and Treyarch have got the footsteps and sound mix right for once, though expect to see it nerfed once people without surround start crying.

Vmp was great too. I don't run with perk 1, Fast Hands and Awareness.

Primary gunfighter X 2 to get four attachments. QuickDraw / grip / stock / and either long barrel or fast mags depending on size of map.

Similar with assault rifle for larger maps. Really enjoying the man o war at the moment, but prestiged it...and have discovered the beauty of the Shieva!!!!

A one shot assault rifle for a quick trigger like me, reminds me of the good old mk14!!! Looking forward to using it more later with some unlocks on it.

Blops 3 is really impressing me, enjoying it

I've found good strengths in all the smgs and assault rifles to be honest. A good spread and well balanced.

Pharo is fun too

Absolutely. Have to say Treyarch have excelled themselves. I usually detest them.

But so many abilities, perks, guns, kill streaks.... And yet the balance is pretty much spot on.

They should give tips to other devs on how they manage all this.

Not so pleased with the perks you get. They could be a lot better.

Only played a handful of games. Rank 25 just now online.

Just maxed out the Kuda really enjoy that.

On to the KN44 now and really like that.

My biggest gripe is the amount of hit markers I seem to get online and not get a kill. Usually empty a full clip into someone before they die.

I guess I'll just need to keep ranking up and u locking stuff

Love the game so far.

Good write up there bud. Really miss the MK14. That was a beast when you were on the money with it.

I used the Sheiva last night, that's the single fire assault rifle isn't it?!

I actually done really well with it.

My style is more fast and in your face, so smg, mowing down people then moving on, getting behind them, but I decided to use Sheiva and pick off people from range, it was never a 1 shot kill I don't think, was always 2 bullets to kill but was great. Outgunned snipers all the time and at first really struggled with close encounters but then found hip firing it was surprisingly accurate. Think it's going to be my assault rifle of choice for a little while.

I find the Man O War also picks people off nicely, as long as you're accurate. I wonder what some of these guns are like on rapid fire? Probably need the extra magazine as one of your attachments.
