With this build you can still snipe effectively at long range (6x), and win most close combat fights without much trouble. Gun - Nyx Attachments - 6x Scope, Compensator, Laser Sight Suit - Nanoweave Misc - Proximity Mines Ability - Cloak Regen Speed The Nyx has one of, if not the highest damage output in the game of all the infantry weapons. From long range it takes 2 headshots to kill a heavy, and most of the time both shots can be fired before the person has time to move. With the compensator, laser sight, and initiating the fight, 1v1s with anything but a MAX become very easy. The exception being medium range combat, where blindfiring isn't very effective and a 6x scope zooms too far. Those situations are easily avoided though, unless spotted while moving in camo. The gun has a lot of vertical recoil, so it takes a bit of getting use to, and is a must to have a compensator and laser sight. The most effective use of this build is hunting people. Following 1 or 2 people while in camo, then exiting stealth when very close behind them. If you're close enough that every one of your bullets hit, they won't even have time to return fire. If going up against a Heavy head to head, you still shouldn't have many problems, as long as you're not missing your shots. The Nyx's damage output is so much higher than anything the Heavy can use, that it compensates for the fact your armor is much less than theirs.
