Class 1 – R9-0 Defensive/ Objective

This class is for the players that like to play the objective. Especially those that love games such as Headquarters and Domination. Kit the R9-0 with the attachments as seen above. The RPG-7 as secondary. 

  • Perk slot 1: E.O.D. to protect you from enemies bombarding the objective with explosives. 
  • Perk slot 2: Hardline: To help you get your support killstreaks faster.
  • Perk slot 3: Battle-Hardened: To protect you from the barrage of stuns and EMPs. 
  • Lethal: C4s are great for clearing objectives inside a small room. Normally there will be an enemy lying on or in the objective. Tossing a C4 in clears it out promptly.
  • Tactical: Gas grenades work wonders when getting enemies out of the HQ or off the Dom flag. They do require you to level up a bit. Therefore, if you don’t have them unlocked yet, choose the Stun or Flash.

Class 2 – R9-0 Groundwar Menace

Class 2 is for the Groundwar fans out there. It caters for close-quarters combat as well as long-range. Follow the same attachment setup as previously mentioned. 

  • Perk slot 1: Because you’re carrying a sniper rifle as a secondary. Overkill is a must here.
  • Perk slot 2: High Alert will give you a heads up if someone can see you. This is great for both close and long-range combat. Especially if you’re sniping from somewhere sneaky.
  • Perk slot 3: Shrapnel will make sure you have 2 claymores to plant. Claymores are essential in Groundwar.
  • Lethal: Claymores will double up from using Shrapnel.
  • Tactical: The Gas Grenade is great when you need to clear an objective.

Class 3 – R9-0 Rushers

Class 3 is for high energy rushers. It’s made for close-quarters combat with a knife in the secondary to get nice and personal with your enemy. Follow the same attachment setup as mentioned above.

  • Perk slot 1: Double Time will give you that extra double sprint you need to get into the battlefield faster.
  • Perk slot 2: Ghost does exactly what it says on the tin. You need to run Ghost if you’re rushing around the map like a lunatic.
  • Perk slot 3: Amped will allow you to quickly switch to your knife in a heated situation.
  • Lethal: C4’s are very effective if you need to clear a flank or choke point.
  • Tactical: Stun Grenades are great when rushing especially in game modes such as SnD. Chuck a stun and then a C4 into the bomb to clear the area.
