Kits with Ambush or weapon buffs like Suppression Fire don't really help the bat'leth much.
For science I personally think the hold kits are best. I can see where healing can be useful too, and there's that melee buff ability from the heal kits but if you're going to melee, it's hard to beat the ability to root your opponent.
For engineer, snare mines and weapon malfunction are both good abilities to have.
Motion accelerator actually does work, and often, just not every time. Lunge is an exploit attack which is also good because the bat'leth has a good shot at getting exposes. Leg sweep works fine for interrupting someone but I've never gotten an expose with it, even though it is supposed to have a chance (just bad luck I think). Ambush does work with the bat'leth as well, it's the landing it before taking damage yourself that's hard, not to mention ambush is better served with a split beam or sniper shot, and then follow up with the bat'leth to get the expose, etc.
