Best Aim Down Sight EBR 14 Loadout

In the first loadout, I will discuss factors like Aim Down Sight Speed, Accuracy, and Range while improving the overall effectiveness of the weapon. While choosing the attachments, it is also important to take into account the Aiming Stability and Fire Rate.

My primary goal with these attachments is  to increase the overall effectiveness of EBR 14 while keeping its damage in debt and making sure it does not get too bulky to handle.

For EBR 14. I recommend the following attachments:

  •  Optic: SZ Bulls Eye Optic 
  •  Under Barrel: FSS Sharkfin 90 
  •  Stock: SO R55 Adapter 
  •  Rear Grip: FSS Grn .7 Grip 
  •  Laser: FSS OLE- V Laser
  • Increased Effective range
  • Better stability over long distance
  • Improved ADS Sway
  • ADS Speed 
  • Visibility of Laser

With these attachments, I was able to improve the range of the weapon even more while boosting the Aiming Capability which is a crucial part of marksman rifles like EBR 14. The attachments listed above are also very easy to obtain, and you will be able to unlock them early on in the game. 

Best Class Setup (Perks And Equipment) 

Next, I will be moving on to the perks you should select for the loadout, along with the equipment and field upgrades. With the perks, I will be focusing mainly on the secondary weapon while also using perks that will increase mobility.

Following are the perks and equipment I use for the first load out of EBR 14:

  •  Base Perk 1: Overkill 
  •  Base Perk 2: Double Time 
  •  Bonus Perk 3: Fast Hands 
  •  Ultimate Perk: High Alert Or Bird’s Eye
  •  Lethal Equipment: Thermite 
  •  Tactical Equipment: Stim Shot 
  •  Field Upgrade: Recon Drone  

Best Secondary Weapon 

For the secondary weapon that you can maneuver alongside EBR 14, I recommend going for SMGs. Being a semi-auto marksman rifle, EBR 14 is only good at a distance.

  • When dealing with enemies that are in close range you will need a weapon that can conquer them easily.
  • I recommend using SMG like FSS Hurricane or MP5. Both of these are extremely powerful guns with a lot of damage up their sleeve, and they excel at close range.
  • Therefore, having a powerful close-range weapon will allow you to cover long to close ranges and make you an important asset for your team.

Best Class Setup (Perks And Equipment)

For the perks and equipment, I will be focusing on increasing ammunition and stealth while using equipment to damage a larger group of enemies. 

I will recommend using this setup for the second loadout of EBR 14.
