Specialist
vs CommandoBody.png
Commando
Commandos heavily outrange you. If using the Auto-Shotgun try to get close, and if using the SMG try and stay at mid range and scope in. Try to use Constructs and cover around the map to your advantage while doing this. If you can get close, you can also try the Grenade Launcher for a one or two hit kill.

vs MarksmanBlueBody.png
Marksman
Marksmen will easily be able to defeat you at a distance. If a Marksman is trying to snipe you, build cover to protect yourself and try to get closer so that both your Auto-Shotgun and SMG will be effective. With their low health, the Marksman should be an easy kill if you can get a few shots in.

vs EngineerBodyBlue.png
Engineer
If you are using the SMG this will be an even fight - scope in, aim for the head and keep moving to increase your chances. If using the Auto-Shotgun, try to get as close as possible. Use map obstacles and Constructs to provide cover while doing this.

Specialist
vs MinerBodyBlue.png
Miner
The Miner will need to get close to you to do damage. Use either your SMG or Auto-Shotgun to attack while he is closing you down, aiming for the torso since he has headshot protection. If he does get close, consider using the Grenade Launcher for a one or two hit kill. If a Miner is chasing you, you can throw a couple of Sticky Grenade's on the ground or wall, timing them to explode as he comes near.

Specialist
vs ZombieBodyBlue.png
Zombie
If using the Auto-Shotgun, Zombies will be easy to kill as they need to get close to attack. If you are mobbed by them then you will usually die, however. The SMG is effective at mid range, so try to keep your distance and attack if a Zombie approaches. His high health will make this difficult though. If a Zombie does get close, consider using the Grenade Launcher for a one or two hit kill.

Specialist
vs Specialist - Blue.png
Specialist
As you know the Specialist has a wide array of weaponry, so you will need to adjust your tactics accordingly. If the Specialist is using the Auto-Shotgun try not to get too close, and if he is using the SMG try to stay out of mid range. Aim for the head, and try using the Grenade Launcher if he gets too close.

Specialist
vs Medic - Blue.png
Medic
Beware of the Medic's Riot Stick, which is a one hit kill. The Medic may use his Riot Shield to provide protection from your SMG or Auto-Shotgun, if this is the case use your Grenade Launcher, Sticky Grenade or Chemical Bomb. If the Medic is using the Double Barrel Shotgun he will need to get close. If he does, your Auto-Shotgun will also be effective, but be aware you will need two or three shots to get a kill, while the Medic will need one. Your Grenade Launcher will also be a one shot kill at close range. If using the Light Machine Gun, the Medic will probably try to stay at mid range. Either scope in and return fire with your SMG, or use the map and constructs to close the difference and use your Auto-Shotgun.
