In terms of your main loadout to complement the sniper rifle, be sure to have a fast-firing automatic weapon on your secondary. Whether an SMG or assault rifle, it will give you some extra support in many situations. Also, be sure to bring the Munitions Box Field Upgrade with you; you will likely take on enemies from afar and you may not find as much ammo.

For your Lethal, either use a Thermite or the Throwing Knife. The Thermite will provide help in taking out Riot Shield-wielding enemies. On the other hand, Throwing Knives will ensure you can deal with close-quarter encounters more efficiently. Especially if some enemies aren’t armored. The Stim should be your go-to Tactical for healing up fast.
