Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabriken AG Parabellumpistole 08
Handgun ★★★ Core fodder

Aka P08, the Luger, the... it has a lot of names. Also 1 of the world's most collectible pistols. One of the earliest automatic pistols ever adopted by anyone, and a whole bunch of other honours.

It was however, not exactly a great battlefield weapon (in fairness, pistols in general were not), and the doll is... mostly that. Has FP and Acc tiles. Not as good as the Chinese Mak Clone or SPP1 for those. Unlike those, has a +eva skill instead of a +fp/acc/somethingoffensive skill.

Unfortunately this makes her less consistent than defensive pistols like Nagant, but it has the odd meme use. It is definitely not a practical standard use gun though, and more something you pull out because you for some reason need its weird mix of features (not likely, but it might happen) or are somehow very desperate (much more likely). If you need a night pistol on the cheap though, you're probably better off with... Nagant, Bren Ten, or 1911.

Submachine Gun ★★★★ Good

Not to be confused with PP-19-01. Decent stats, interesting buff tile, but like all grenade SMGs kinda superfluous.

Between Zas (same area, more damage, enemy debuff), molotovs (a lot more damage and damage over time, smaller area), and airstrikes (all the area, more damage) there's plenty of better options to sacrifice your enemies on the altar of Megumin. Can be pressed into service if you're really lacking off tank options, I guess.

Extra notes available.

YANDERE DA NYAAAAA

…For once, an Austrian gun that's not hilariously OP. Instead, she's a 3* IDW with lower evasion and tiles that want her in the off-tank position for which she's useless in. Even worse, she's a crazy yandere and thus a trash tier waifu.

Given that evasion tanks are niche to begin with, and RO is free, not worth bothering with.

Panzerbüchse 39

Panzerbüchse 39
Rifle ★★★★ Probably the worst rifle in the game

Aka PzB39

Has the same useless skill as JS05, with nothing to save her from being just as useless. Bring 2* rifles if you're running out of good ones, they're still better than her.

With the new changes to RF skills she... uhm... managed to be even shittier, easily earning the "Worst RF in the game" award with how her shot literally does less than a normal shot at base power (at skill lvl10!) and also having an aiming time of slower than her natural RoF.

Heckler & Koch UMP40

Submachine Gun ★★★★ Niche uses

Thot twin #3?!

And probably the one that's going to give me a fucking heart attack. Yes, her skill has big numbers. Biiiiig nuuuuuuumbers. Now get your dick off your phone screen and start using your brain:

  • If she does not use her active, she slowly gains evasion over time. Emphasis on slowly.
  • If she does use her active, her evasion slowly drops down to "nonexistent", making her a sitting duck if she's tanking.

In a proper tanking role, her buff tiles are literally useless: 500% crit buff x 5% SMG base crit rate = 30% crit rate if you aren't running a suppressor or a crit scope, and if you are using those, your SMGs will have shit-tier accuracy even if you stack reasonable amounts of buffs on them. At the same time you're losing out on AR buffs, which will extremely cripple your DPS. You're better off bringing C-MS or RO635 to buff your back line instead. Even Suomi can buff her evasion up faster than UMP40 could ever hope to.

If she does use her active skill, it'll similarly take incredibly long for her to really ramp up her damage skill – at 18+ seconds to get her damage above 2* ARs, she competes with Negev for the title of "slowest stacking skill in the game", and SR-3MP consistently out-DPSes her even without any buffs. With the UMPs' exclusive equip. Without, her damage output is even worse.

You can build some silly 5 SMG meme echelons around her that sometimes don't totally suck, but unless you know what you're doing, you should put her on cafe duty.

DSR-Precision DSR-50

DSR-Precision DSR-50
Rifle ★★★★★ Niche uses

AKA… I'm sure you can come up with a few backronyms for DSR, given her artwork.

She's a big bamboo with decent stats (higher firepower than M99, lower than NTW-20), but a variable multiplier on her skill damage. 6x (at full charges) against unarmoured enemies is extremely unattractive – Mosin with her chip manages the same damage output, with much lower cooldown –, but 10x (again, assuming full charge) against armoured enemies is very attractive on paper, since a lot of bosses you want to smack with bamboos are armoured.

…except, of course, MICA does it weirdly: DSR's skill doesn't look at the armour stat, but at a separate, hidden "has armour" tag that some armoured enemies do not have set, and the way tags work in the game means it can be buggy whether it works or not, further making her less useful. Additionally, bamboo Rifles got a rework that makes them a pain in the ass to use at full power in exchange for being technically more flexible.

If you know what you're doing, you can delete an enemy target in short order. If you don't... you might be better off doing some research before deciding if this is the doll for you.

Submachine Gun ★★★★ Good

Quite literally a 4* Vector. Marginally better evasion and HP, marginally worse firepower and molotov multiplier, identical buff tile.

Lithgow F1 Submachine Gun

Lithgow F1 Submachine Gun
Submachine Gun ★★★ Trophy Raifu

She has a stupidly big HP pool, but otherwise her stats are more 2½ star than 3 star. Combine that with a decidedly average smoke grenade and terrible tiles, and you end up with a doll more bland than Foster's. Can be made work if you really want to (give her plenty of evasive buffs), but you're almost guaranteed to be better off with UMP45.

Fabrique Nationale Model 1949

Fabrique Nationale Model 1949
Rifle ★★ Usable

FN49 for short. Has a mod3 that turns her into a more powerful FP-buffing rifle than Lee. Until then, she's okay-ish for a free unit to pair with M14, but has plenty of better alternatives available.

For more info on her mod look at this article

Rifle ★★ Enhancement fodder

Or SKS for short. Self-buffs RoF, but with too weak stats. Between G43 and M14 you have enough good low-rarity rifles to keep you supplied while you work on better ones.

Aka AAT-52. Between an useless skill and even more useless buff tiles not worth using under any circumstances.

Actually has more DPS than G3. Still not great.

Handgun ★★★★ Recommended

Her basic tile buff is excellent, which instantly makes her the best handgun to use with MG echelons at day. It's also good for AR echelons at night, if you don't have 5* PEQs on your ARs, similar to SAA. The combination of a significant HG evasive buff plus very decent rifle damage buff also makes her a solid alternative to Grizzly for RFHG echelons. So far, so good.

…and then you notice that her skill is tile based. With proper setup, this means she gives an 174% evasion buff to HG/SMG, 81% damage buff to AR/RF, and/or 483% accuracy buff to MGs. This can a bit finnicky to pull off, but the results are hilarious enough to make it worth the effort.

Heckler & Koch XM8

Heckler & Koch XM8
Assault Rifle ★★★★ Core fodder

Like her real life counterpoint, ultimately disappointment despite being not quite entirely worse than many competitors.

She's not the worst grenadier out there, but in the end, both 416 and SOPMOD are better than her, and you don't need more than a few grenadiers.

Desert Tech Micro-Dynamic Rifle (MDR)

Desert Tech Micro-Dynamic Rifle (MDR)
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

Selfie Queen. Troll. Probably Jarv's waifu Jarv in disguise. Claims bullpups are scientifically the best thing ever.

If she doesn't have an ally in front of her, she self-buffs for both firepower and RoF, with a net increase of 76.9% DPS (over G41's 75%, and she has more base firepower, so she will provide generally superior damage except vs armor). This alone makes her usable, but her unique brand of cheese is when you have friends in front of her.

On skilluse, she scans for an ally directly ahead and if one is found, gives them a 40hp shield that increases their evade by 80%, stacking multiplicatively with all other buffs. Has very good synergy with units like C-MS, MP7, and the like. Due to the way area scan skills work, with the move command and a sense of timing, you can actually protect the whole echelon this way via shenanigans (or at least just all your frontal tank units). Oh by the way, this also works on the taunt fairy target drone.

Flexible unit that can be used 2 ways, and is actually handy in both of them.
