In this build, the MTZ Clinch Pro Barrel increases Bullet Velocity, Damage Range, Aiming Idle Sway, and Firing Aim Stability. This will ensure that the weapon will function both in close-range as well as mid-range combat.

The Slate Reflector is the best scope you can go for in the game. This sight can function for both medium and close-range combat, as the enemy is clearly visible, but you will not have to deal with any other visual obstacles.

The EXF Close Quarters Assault Stock is crafted to make sure that you can become as aggressive as possible. This Stock makes combat around tight corners extremely smooth, which means it will come in handy when going up against SMGs.
