This build works well in all PvE content, except for Warmaster where you should use a more specialized build.

The TACC Assault Rifle can be used at all ranges with no noticeable damage drop off. The Spanner Protector should be rolled for healing and links, for self healing and team support.

The perks are balanced for damage with Overcharge and passive defenses that pair well with BMG healing.
