FX-05

FX-05
Assault Rifle ★★★★ Surprisingly OK if you still are short on ARs for some reason, but otherwise eh.

Basically what you'd expect from something that's the standard of the Mexican Army. Frankly, at this point there's so many good ARs that another one would have to be REALLY good to get a real recommendation, and this one isn't going to win any medals, but she has good uptime and is cheap.

RPK-203

RPK-203
Machine Gun ★★★★★ An actually excellent multipurpose MG

Between her two modes AND a passive that helps keep shotguns alive, I don't think there's much more to say other than "she's great, you will probably find a use for her."

AR-57

AR-57
Submachine Gun ★★★★ Weird multipurpose SMG that can buff allies

She looks like a discount STAR-chan, although it's hard to describe anything that uses a stupidly expensive round like the 5.7 as a discount anything. She has a three second long cooldown and the skill lasts for two seconds. Her big thing is that she can also buff SMGs. She can be used either a mild firepower buff or an actually not awful evasion buff, the downside of which being that getting her evasion buff to work requires moving your dolls around.

SIG MCX

SIG MCX
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Hark, an interesting AR for once

Status warfare doesn't come up too much in GFL too much given bosses are routinely immune to it and elites get shortened status effect durations, but if you actually need status effects from an AR, the stun is surprisingly far-reaching behind the initial target, and she prioritizes enemies suffering from debuffs.

Type-97S Mod

Shotgun ★★★★★ Hotter on the outside, mostly the same inside

The change of artist did her a world of good. She went from kind of cute to straight up hot. Too bad your waifu still sucks. She isn't the shittiest shotgun in the game, but her mod's not exactly groundbreaking. The decrease in enemy movement speed is almost an afterthought since it lasts one second and she has a very low rate of fire making the skill questionable at best. If the duration were longer and knockback didn't have such a low chance to go off maybe it'd be better, but alas.

Submachine Gun ★★★★★★ Cant touch this Cue Music

The first 6 star SMG, and oh boy, she deserves it. As long as the damage isn't so overwhelming that it can kill her dummies outright, she has a chance to negate the damage. The chances increase if the enemy has more debuffs or has Marks of Vengeance on them, which immediately makes her a good pair with M4. Also the Sop doll is cute and comes with weird features. This is literally Sop's fault.

G11 Mod

G11 Mod
Assault Rifle ★★★★★★ Red Bull gives you buffs.

Finally adjusted so she can stop being perpetually narcoleptic (sort of) through the power of energy drinks. She was already a decent AR whose weakness was that she couldn't hurt armor. Well, they solved the armor problem by doing percentage-based damage. Her damage is still affected by armor, but often she'll just do enough damage that you won't care anyway and can contribute to the fight regardless. She still has the issue of the poor uptime due to her long skill cooldown, but you should be smart enough to deal with that.

Super SASS Mod

Super SASS Mod
Rifle ★★★★ Very Specific Niche Shit

Her mod has changed her up from just a 1-shot-1-kill attempt like the other bamboo rifles and gone to... uhm.. she keeps trying to kill them if she fails. It's sort of funny thinking about it, with her going "WHY WONT YOU DIE, JUST DIE ALREADY" as she keeps unloading into the poor fucker who should have been killed.

It's not especially useful right now, but if there's a situation where you want an actual specific thing killed and need something that will keep targeting that thing, it has some potential use. It's very very niche and she's not an especially big priority right now, though.

Machine Gun ★★★★ Another Entry to the "First Belt or Die" Club

Comparable to the Browning Potato Digger. There must be something about early model machine guns. Her skill gives her an extra long belt that activates three seconds in, and unlike Potato Digger, who sacrifices accuracy and gains firepower, she instead sacrifices reload time while gaining accuracy. While the extra reload time is a pain, she does buff other dolls while reloading instead of being useless. The accuracy boost is nice, but not a game-changer. It may help vs. enemies with a moderate amount of evasion though, given typical MG accuracy is kind of mediocre.

VHS

VHS
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Quirky, but has funny potential

No, she's not a video tape. One of her skins shows her recent arrival in the US has apparently given her quite the dump truck ass. Must be all the McDonalds. Her skill powers her up with extra stats relative to the enemies she's fighting, meaning she has basically no real use vs. mooks. Potentially handy vs. bosses, but being a RoF-focused AR, she suffers from chips existing.

AUG Para

AUG Para
Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Quirky multi-mode sub-tank

Another one of those attack/defense mode sub-tanks. Weirdly cheerful unlike her somewhat gloomy sister, though she's probably even weirder in the head. The stat changes and adjustments are applied every 0.1 seconds, so it takes a few seconds for it to take full effect. The big quirk is she gains a flat amount of stats rather than a percentage which applies after all other buffs, but ALSO after the night time accuracy penalty, which means she's about as accurate as a PEQ-equipped AR at night while she's in attack mode. It also happens after Fairy debuffs are resolved, so you can also use her to dodge or attack even while under Parachute Fairy debuffs.

Colt Defender

Shotgun ★★★★ Funny Burst Damage Shotgun. Has funny comp use.

An absolute weirdo muscle girl, because Shotguns didn't have that fetish covered. Somehow despite her muscles, nobody bothered to ask her to carry any real armor, because her Armor value is bottom-tier for a shotgun at 18, and she is also mildly annoying to get.

Her skill basically unloads every barrel at once, and at max level her reload time is fixed to two seconds instead of the expected five, and she does extra damage based on how close the enemy is. This gives her surprisingly good DPS for a shotgun and in some cases she can burst harder than an MG. She's also currently the best option for fast times on Intermediate data sim.

Two big things to remember though: 1. DO NOT TRY TO BUILD AN EXODIA SETUP AROUND HER, seriously, and 2. Make sure you have something to defend her. RMB-93 mod actually pairs well with her.

General Liu

Rifle ★★★★★ Fairly useful and unique actually

Named after a Chinese rifle most of you have never heard of, because the dude who it's named after managed to die before he really got the rifle into mass production. Remember those old jokes about Chinese human wave attacks? For a rifle that's basically rarer than non-corrupt Chinese officials during its era, there are somehow enough of them to equip a human wave of dolls, since she can equip a bunch of extra dolls on top of her dummy links. She's actually interesting since her skill can let her swap between forward and back targeting priorities and the sheer number of links she has is useful in situations where you need a large number of hits to deal with enemies' mechanics. It got a lot of use in later rankings for good reason.

MAG-7

MAG-7
Shotgun ★★★★ In the dumpster with the rest of the DPS shotguns

Like every other DPS shotgun, she really doesn’t have a place in current content. A phrase commonly used around here is “a solution in search for a problem”, but the real problem with MAG-7 is that I’m not entirely sure she’s a solution either.

Her passive effect can be very nice when enemies start having 600 armor, but the times there are less than three targets are very rare. Her active skill can make her damage go sky high if it’s allowed to stack, but her being on the frontline gives her the same issues a lot of DPS SMGs have. She’ll lose links, cutting her damage by a ton. Not to mention that it takes a little while for it to ramp up. The DR afforded to her by the skill isn’t high enough to keep her healthy enough to do much.

Supernova

Supernova
Shotgun ★★★★ Good to have

Supernova is a shotgun pretending to be a handgun to go along with her shipmate GSh-18. She’s one of the most supportive shotguns available and she enables some real dumb stuff. You want to use MGs at night? Well, her skill allows for that. Do you need a little more defensive capability for your shotguns? She brings that too, all in a kancolle-flavoured package. Honestly, she’s not an automatic pick on every team. You’re likely going to have to drop a MG in your formation to make use of her fully, which can be an issue.

Her two main draws are her movement speed and her MG buffs. Her roller skates allow her to go almost as fast as a handgun, but not quite. Not much else to say about that, but main reason to take her is the MG buffs she provides.

While crit rate is nice, the accuracy buff she provides to MGs is fixed. This means that MGs are entirely usable at night. It bypasses the accuracy penalty that you would normally have with no PEQ. While not the most relevant thing currently, you definitely want to have Supernova in your back pocket for the future.
