the main rules are for all but scout,
1) hide your cab. The main cab is a huge target, the best way is to somehow cover it, use splitters and such to make it so weapons are in front of the cab or items such as generators
2) if your not going to hide your cab, buy a tough cab, though you’ll still die quickly
3) build it for a purpose, if you want a a tough defender build it on 4 legs with plenty of guns, and most importantly plenty of fuel and a decent generator to power them, as a defender the main thing is pure weapons power to overwhelm then attackers,
4) never have big guns on two legs and never have multibarreled big guns on anything other than Quadrapods otherwise the recoil will knock the shot off and spin your whole vehicle
Scouts are best as light nimble things with fire armaments, basic weapons if any and tool wise you want useful items, If its a night level then get the flare gun because not all your team-mates will have night vision equipped so will be blind unless you illuminate the enemy for them (its also good to equip nightvision yourself so atleast then you see the enemy and can set up flare shots better.
Useful tools include mine dispensers ( might sound bad but no-one
seriously uses mine dispensers sensors anymore so using mines can really
ambush the enemy and give your team that advantage,)
a bomb dispensor because even as a scout you can attack the base because you can normally outrun the defenders and with bombs you cause major damage before they realize you are there.
against human opponents a communication blocker means you can really destroy the enemy by seperating and cutting off their communication allowing many more ambushes.
