Having a good Primary Weapon is important, but there's a lot still to choose from that could make or break this class. Here's what we recommend for the rest of it.

  • Secondary Weapon - Luger
  • Lethal - Throwing Knife
  • Tactical - No. 69 Stun Grenade
  • Perk One - Ninja
  • Perk Two - Radar
  • Perk Three - Double Time

Of course, there's a lot of room for tweaking these loadouts and this Starter Class isn't any different. When you unlock more attachments and weapons, you might find something else that suits your playstyle. For now, though, this is the perfect place to start.
