I really love the enemy neutralization kits. Mines are great, weapon malfuction stops that elite from one shotting you if you can't get into a cover and the bomb can deal over 1.5k damage to multiple borg. You should also carry another kit with the Quantum Mortar because you can place it and then switch to the mine kit. Of course mines go well with the 'up close & personal' playstyle of pulsewaves.

Medical kits are kind of... well less useable in elite ground runs let us say.
Advantages of medical kit are extra resistances with triage, countering assimilation with nanite healing and keeping yourself (or a team mate) alive if you are quick. Otherwise I usually use the Physicist kit because who doesn't like making things combust?

Anyway, there's really no 'best' kit or weapon to use. It all depends on your playstyle. I wouldn't expect people without a background in FPS games to play like I do anyway.

Once you go pulseweave you never go back. Keep the MACO rifle for some long range shots and the set bonus.
