    I always like an infiltrator type character. I usually go with my main weapon of a high power, great reange and stability, silenced, light weight, about 10 rounds per mag, non bolt action so I can get off several shots, sniper rifle. I like to wound one person to draw in another then another when they try to help their friend and then I toss in a gernade or explosive round to take out several at once. For a secondary weapon I tend to bounce back and forth depending on the mission. I may go with some type of compact assault weapon with medium range but good for close quaters. Silencer is optional, but also with capability for a shotgun or gernade launcher. Then again sometimes I may go for a shot gun with max capcity load barrel and high speed to make a mess. Then I would also make sure I carry an array of explosives may the be concussive, flash, gas, smoke, or timed and triggered such as trip mines. When all else fails I fall back on a rapid fire with decent clip pistol and a combat knife. I like to sneak up to my enemies from afar. Cause confusion and division with my sniper rifle. Move in and slit a few throats, set up a few expolsive surprises for my retreat then when I get close to my main objective I open up with the assault or shot gun. When I head out I follow my booby trap train using my pistol and anyone that doesnt get it on the mines will get a 45 to the head. Thats about the time I jump on a stolen dirt bike head into town steal clothes from a street vendor or bum and blend back into the crowd.

    Well–for standard characters, I always start with ranged, mid-to-low tech for the game.

    Occasionally, I play custom characters who can’t hurt others or BE hurt by others. Then I get a lot of mileage out of illusory traps to slow down the enemy. Those I find more interesting.
