Infantry vest

Scavenger gloves

Lightweight boots

Magazine holster

We recommend the above perk package for running Sidewinder. The Infantry vest aims to mitigate mobility losses by increasing your tactical sprint duration – which you can combine with it Lightweight boots to further increase mobility. Scavenger gloves are a must for any class where you quickly run out of ammo. Magazine holster is the final benefit we suggest and aims to reduce the slow reload times that come with extended magazine attachments.

A major disadvantage is the Sidewinder’s small magazine size. If this is the case, you should consider switching to a pistol when your magazine is empty. The RenettiThe FTAC Siegeand that X13 car are some of our top picks for the handgun category.
