Recommended weapons -Use Smartlink with a rifle (regular) and also purchase a shotgun. You will be able to destroy almost anything with this combo.
-Do not purchase a rocket launcher as it is not at all worth the hefty price. Even though it is strong, its lack of ammo nullifies its usefulness.
Recommended magic Purchase Resurrect as this is one of the most useful spells. Teleport can be also be useful at times.
Recommended races Play as an Elf with Katana with Wired Reflexes so you can deflect bullets and, if you get behind someone unaware, they will bleed out. Pair this with smoke and you will almost never die.
