Recommended Perks


With another buff given to help ARs get back into the mix, it might be pretty tempting to take the Abyss Defiant out for a spin. The weapon itself is pretty middle of the road, with good AA but poor stability and recoil direction, and average range. The perks help a little bit, with tier one sight Red Dot OAS as a primary option, and a great middle tree perk in Perfect Balance. Hip Fire is an okay perk in the second column, but then we have a wasted slot with Lich Bane as the fourth perk. Long story short, there a both better and worse guns than this one to use, so maybe have some fun with it, but it's not going to be a meta-buster.
