Go with any weapon that gives you a 200% cooldown bonus. This build isn’t very weapon dependent as you’ll be spamming overload and incinerate a lot. I went with an M-8 Avenger X.
Your top priority should be stripping enemies of their shields/barriers. Second should be planting your combat drone as a distraction. Last should be burning everything in sight. You’ll use incinerate to burn through armor and stun weaker enemies when appropriate.
Also, incinerate curves around corners. A brute / banshee won’t be able to attack you if you lead them the right direction while burning them down.
You may choose to swap some points from Fitness to Alliance Training or Combat Drone to fit your style. I really like having a high fitness for silver and gold runs.
Noob level: (scale 1-5, 1 is easy for everybody!)
1. It’s a pretty easy build to play. Rip off shields. Burn down armor. Plant a combat drone once in a while. The extra fitness makes it more forgiving and basic weapons work just fine. For those who care your score will be pretty high as well. Ripping off shields contributes a lot and your squad members will love you for it.
