A guide to using Lion on Border
■ Using Lion on Border Border is a small to medium sized map with 2 floors of elevation. This map features an almost excessive number of breakable walls, and lots of small interconnected rooms, which can make it a difficult map to traverse for both attackers and defenders alike. Many of the bomb sites feature breakable walls or entrances leading directly outside, which can make things slightly easier for attackers. Lion is a two speed, two armor operator offering a great weapon selection with a specialization in crowd control. His gadget, the EE-ONE-D is a device that highlights any enemies that continue to move after a three-second warning. This scanning period lasts for several seconds forcing the defending team to remain where they stand unless they want to risk revealing their location. Their exact position can also be seen through walls and obstacles, making this particular type of scanning extremely useful. Don’t expect to actually reveal the locations of many enemies when using this gadget, rather think of it as a method of holding defenders in their current position allowing you and your teammates to move more confidently throughout the map. This gadget is especially useful if you have planted the defuser at a bomb site and you know defenders must now retake that bomb site. Using your EE-ONE-D device here makes this task immensely difficult for the defending team. Lion the choice of using three primary weapons. The first is the V308 assault rifle. This weapon has a high level of recoil making it difficult to control. This weapon also features a 50 bullet drum magazine allowing you to suppress and pre-fire with confidence. The second option is the 417 Marksman Rifle. This is a single fire weapon that features a high damage output. A drawback to this weapon is the small magazine size. Regardless, this weapon is an excellent choice for long-range duels. His third choice of weapon is the SG-CQB Shotgun. It is difficult to recommend this weapon as you will more than likely be facing most enemies at medium to long-range, however, if you want to have fun and rush with a shotgun, don’t let me stop you! Lion has a choice between two secondary weapons. The first option is the P9 handgun which is a typical pistol and a solid backup weapon. The second option is the more atypical LFP586 magnum revolver. This weapon offers extremely high damage output at the expense of fire rate, recoil, and reload speed. With Lion you can also choose to use stun grenades or claymores. Select whatever suits your play style.
