I made this class for my brother, who has not played Call of Duty in a decade, to bring him up to speed within this fast-paced, ever-evolving series and set him up for success, hence “Pacesetter.”
This configuration keeps the Tac Laser – a great all-around attachment – on the Sandbar, and the base “look” but that’s all. The 100 Round Drum Mags and Integral Hybrid – also found on the Sandbar – are given their distinct look thanks to the Regal Retribution blueprint, found in the ‘Fool’s Gold’ weapon bundle from Season One.
The 100 Round Drum Mag gives plenty of ammo to waste and is surprisingly quick to reload, while the optic is a personal preference. A two-for-one optic is great for utility in engagements, but feel free to go with your favorite optic attachment.
I used the final two attachment slots on the Muzzle Brake and the M203 40mm High-Explosive underbarrel launcher from the Silent Stalker blueprint, part of the ‘Las Tigres’ Store bundle from Season Three. The Muzzle attachment is great for recoil stability, essentially making the recoil more predictable, while the underbarrel launcher is for groups of enemies or to destroy vehicles.
All these blueprints combined gives you this Pacesetter Gunsmith Custom Creation. However, in order to make this exact configuration, you must fully level up Assault Rifle Alpha to be able to mix and match these attachments, including their cosmetic appearance.
In other words, as my brother – or you – use this weapon, learning how to control its up-and-to-the-left recoil and the range its most effective at, it will gain these attachments and many more.
And who knows? Maybe he’s had enough explosives and swaps the underbarrel launcher for a Commando Foregrip to further stabilize recoil. Or he becomes a more accurate player, and decides he doesn’t need a 100 Drum Mag, taking a 60 Round one instead for better mobility.
But his journey towards finding what he’s good at and Ranking Up – as well as the journey you take and the one I’m on – is for another Report.
For now, I’ll see you online.
