Each Final participant has a choice of three tools to take with him to the arena, and there is plenty to choose from. Season 3 introduces even more gadgets, such as the Thermal Hole of Light. Choosing among them can be dizzying, even if you can take extras with you as a backup. Read on for our top recommendations that cater to every play style.

The best gadgets explained

Most classes can use the same gadgets in each set, and some tools are exclusive to a specific class. Light versions have breaching charges, for example, while Heavy has RPG-7, for example. Here are the best gadgets in the game:

  • Taser
  • Infringement fee
  • The disappearing bomb
  • APS Tower
  • Defibrillators
  • Jumping pad and zip line
  • RPG
  • Barricade
  • Dome Shield

Depending on your playstyle, you may prefer one item over the other. For example, stealth Light players would prefer the Vanishing Bomb to the Goo Grenade. When it comes to defensive tactics, defibrillators allow you to get your teammates back faster and maintain your position in the game. Our top picks will help beginners and experienced players rework their existing equipment and tactics.
