I use this most of the time. The main point of this loadout is to recharge your ego power as fast as possible. And that's where my fully modded quartermaster 0.0 reload zagger comes into play. 0 reload time and ego power recharge on full reload paired with pumped up perk can recharge ego ability in a few shots. Here is how I use it.

To quickly recharge my ego power I switch to my zagger, fire a shot and switch back to my primary weapon. 7 seconds later (cooldown time) I do the same. It takes me 3 shots to fully recharge ego power. I can activate overcharge every 24+ seconds.

This loadout was ungodly before 7 second cooldown nerf. It only took 2 seconds to fully recharge your ego power. But even with a cooldown it's still a great loadout.
