With the Loadout 1 setup, the best Equipment you could run is going to be the Flash Grenade and Semtex. The flash will blind enemies and will help you push them or reposition yourself. The syntax is great to stick enemies with or do some great splash damage. Combining the two can also help with easy 1v4s.
