The effectiveness of Extra Tactical depends largely on an individual's play style. In objective game modes, such as Domination, equipping two Trophy Systems with Extra Tactical allows prolonged defense against enemy projectiles. This assists in capturing flags, as they are usually a prime target for lethal and tactical grenades while being captured. Equipping two Motion Sensors can be useful for controlling choke points, as they can be placed to guard doorways and warn the player of incoming enemies. In Hardcore modes, using Extra Tactical with Thermobaric Grenades is a potent combination, as the reduced player health means that Thermobaric Grenades can be practically used as lethals, while Extra Tactical costs one less perk slot than Extra Lethal.
Extra Tactical, Extra Lethal and Recon are very effective when used in conjunction with each other, with the extra perks providing explosives and Recon tagging enemies for improved team awareness of enemy movements.
