Endgame - which specialisation?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting close to Endgame and wondered if you could trial the specialisations before you choose one?

I'll naturally lean toward the sniper but I'm intrigued by the survivalist.

 

 


The ocean is on fire...........The sky turned dark again as the boats came in........And the beaches, stretched out with soldiers, with their guns and arms..........It has just begun

It's not a dedicated locked-in choice. You can switch between the three, the only restriction is that you can only switch at the White House.

That's good to know.

Do you have a favourite that you stick with?

For soloing, I like Survivalist. Incendiary grenades. Check their perks tree to see what you like. There's buffs for different weapon types. The perks are very good. I wouldn't worry about the actual Specialization weapon until it is all buffed up considerably. They're fairly lame and their ammo is limited.

It all depends on what build you are going for. 

 

I run a seeker skill build so need the explosive damage perk from the demolitionist. If you like to burn things and are specced for that you would go survivalist. 

 

I will tell you this. With +80 explosive damage that grenade launcher hits really hard.

The specialisations also have damage bonuses for weapon types so the Demolitionist has for SMG and LMG, Survivalist for AR & Shotgun and the Sniper for Marksman and Rifle (IIRC - I am sure someone will correct if i am wrong :14_relaxed:).

I run the AR on most of my builds so Survivalist fits well with the extra AR % damage you can spec points in to.  In the beta I liked the Demonlitionist best as I had a great P90 to use with the SMG bonus.

Give them all a try and see what works for you.  Just remember you have to do activities with that specialisation to earn point to spend on upgrading it.  The perk points are not common across all 3.  You can, however, redistribute your specialisation perks after you have already assigned them.  One of the perks for the Sniper is not very good for my play style (don't remember which one) so after trying it out, I redistributed and just didn't give any perk points to it.

Thanks for the comments.

I'll be honest, this is all Greek to me at the minute but I'm one mission away from Endgame and I'm sure it will all make sense soon enough.
