This is a guide to help you with the loadouts in this game. Choosing the right loadout is necessary to finish a mission properly. This guide will help you with that.
Choosing the right loadout can be a game changer,
For starters, the NPCs (mostly Briggs) recommends you some loadout items before you start a mission. You can avoid his suggestions and pick whatever you want but it makes things complicated.
What should you use? Lethal or Non Lethal
Non Lethal gear might cost more but it will save you a lot of time and avoid unnecessary firefights, and even help you with ghosting.
It’s not like you have to go completely non lethal because this game has some missions where you need to go completely lethal. So your preference should be non lethal but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t carry lethal weapons.
How to earn cash to buy loadout items
Keep an eye on high value targets during missions. You need to capture them to get some bonus.
Loadout Category: Pistol
I use the F40 pistol which can be bought in the loadout section. Ditch the basic pistol that the game gives you, its garbage.
You can go for high tier pistols but there are other items that you need to spend your money on.
Loadout Category: Goggles
With high tier goggles, you can track enemies through walls with better range.
Goggles are the first thing you need to invest in during the early game.
In the first mission, you get night vision goggles, these can be then upgraded to sonar. Further upgrades make the goggles work better.
Loadout Category: Suit
Always go for Nanopolymer coating when it comes to suit. Combat armor is pretty much useless since you can just avoid most of the firefights. Use the stealth armor all the time.
Loadout Category: Lights
I chose purple lights, what’s yours?
Loadout Category: Alternate Weapon
You get a crappy SMG in the beginning of the game. Just ditch that crap and get the FAMAS first. It’s not silenced but you don’t need a silencer during a loud firefight, do you?
You can stick with 416 if you’re trying for stealthy runs. Just in case you run into a fight, you can pull it out and deal with the enemies.
Loadout Category: Special Weapon
You can rely on tazer in the early game but you should consider upgrading to the crossbow because its better.
Special weapons shouldn’t be used frequently since the ammo is very limited here. So if you’re going non lethal, you have to avoid touching enemies.
Loadout Category: Gadgets
You can take anything you want but noisemaker, tri rotor, proximity shocker and sleep grenade can be a game changer.
