My first guide, oh boy. I am by all means NOT good at Death Sentence or DSOD, so take this with with a grain of salt. Criticism and discussion is very welcome.
Primary: Akimbo Káng Arms Model 54 Pistols
- KA54 Barrel Extender
- Asepsis Suppressor
- Stability Boost
- KA54 Extended Magazine
- AP Slug
Fairly standard modifications in my opinion, Stability Boost can be swapped out for Accuracy Boost.
Secondary: 5/7 AP Pistol
- TiN Treated Barrel
- Asepsis Suppressor
- Any Boost
- Micro Laser
- Extended Magazine
- SKOLD Reflex Micro Sight 1.5x
Not much to comment here either. This gun should primarily be used on snipers and the sight can be removed if you are confident in your aim.

Can drop akimbo aced for inspire. Hardware expert should be dropped for martial arts in heists where drills/saws aren’t needed.
Purpose and Playstyle
How should I play this build and why?
The Kángs are extremely heavy hitting for pistols, possessing a high base damage and utility with the shotgun underbarrel. Because of this, berserker, one handed talent, and overkill aced are simply not necessary to deal adequate damage. You should be mainly using your primary but also actively using your 5/7 for snipers, and lone enemies to make up for the Kángs somewhat poor ammo economy. The shotgun underbarrel on the Kángs serves the purpose of quickly killing or starting off with high damage on specials, mostly bulldozers and shields. Unless in a pinch, you should always swap to your 5/7 to deal with shield and snipers.
Why use Sicario? Normally, I would recommend Anarchist, but there are two reasons why Sicario is a better choice. For one, the Kángs mainly suffer from low ammo, both in the clip and reserve, because of this, you do not have the sustain to actively armor gate and forcing you into a slightly slower and defensive playstyle. Sicario perfectly fits this though, providing you with high dodge for you and your crew. The smoke bomb should be used to cover this weakness and complete objectives. If not needed for an objective, you should instead use the smoke bomb to support your team and cover your a*s while you reload under pressure.
Your role as an individual covers three bases; support, objective completion, and special picking. The smoke bomb as stated earlier can be used to support your team (and your frequent reloads), or complete objectives.The hard hitting nature of the Kángs and the AP Slug underbarrel should be used to pick off specials. The slugs in particular should mainly be used to either help quickly remove a Dozer’s visor or to quickly take care of a shield. Remember to keep to underbarrel loaded.
Honestly I only made this because I think the Kángs are cool. If you want an actually good build just use the Stryks with berseker and anarchist.
