NTW-20 Mod

NTW-20 Mod
Rifle ★★★★★★ Very Weird Removal Specialist

The very first 6 star on EN! And she's... buggy as fuck actually and with more weird shit going on than the UNS secret weapons programs. For example the way she misses her first firing cycle is a patchwork for a different bug and basically it's awkward to use her for a lot of meme things.

Boasting really high FP and multipliers though (especially with her unique equipment and ability to hit 200 affection if oathed), she got converted from a straight boss killer to a very weird assassin that removes certain enemies from the field. Her second skill makes her preferentially target units she can destroy, which makes her actually pretty handy for quick removal. Moreover, if she DOES actually kill it, she gets buffs for the next shot which... unfortunately can miss, which makes her less useful at night for this.

She's not particularly useful right now, but if you have specific needs for that sort of thing, she can work. She is however, a very expensive investment, so make sure it's what you actually want.

Welp this is it. The big mamma of all bamboo rifles. I was trying very hard to make a Canadian joke except she beat me to the punch on all of them. She is OFFENSIVELY Canadian (despite being a US product, the rifle is more famous for Canadian use).

As far as Bamboo rifles go, she is THE big stick, delivering sweet, maple syrup flavoured death to all comers. Initial startup similar to small bamboo, but with damage equivalent to multiple big bamboo rifles combined when used properly. Don't let the lower multiplier fool you - what sets her apart is the fact she can crit. This is massive, as it opens up extra layers of multipliers simply not available to any other bamboo rifle. How much damage? Well on KR, with her full posse and a maxed out command fairy, she can spike vs 320k HP bosses, so yeah.

An (kind of) unfortunate trait is that due to her funny timings, it is not possible to efficiently use her with other bamboo rifles, as she has different aim times from any other one (she's faster than small bamboos).

Yes bamboo is niche, but if you really cbf to "fight" a boss and would rather just skip the fact they exist, here you go.

Premod, TAC-50 does her job but better. So if you're hurting on 6* mod material cause of all your Calico mods, ignore her until you can afford that. After mod...well look at her mod article.

See NTW-20's entry, but with somewhat lower ATK. Also a loli and will call the police on you.

JS05

JS05
Rifle ★★★★★ Trophy Raifu

She was part of the group of 5 stars, where they tried out new things to see if they would work. Unfortunately, the wonkiness of how she worked and not playing into how battles played out, AT ALL made her shittier than even the mediocre 3 star RFs. RIP wasted design.

With the revision, it's even worse now. You can literally improve her DPS by turning her skill off, due to the aim time taking longer than normal RoF while still dealing only 1x damage. ...And it still generally doesnt get to punch through stuff.

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.

Mosin Nagant Mod

Mosin Nagant Mod
Rifle ★★★★★ Weirdly decent specialist

Let's get this out of the way now, I hate the Mosin and think of it as a garbage thing. Most of the people who love the thing are weirdos or idiots who have never tried comparing the Mosin to an actual well-built modern gun, which does almost anything it does but better. Hayha used it because he had nothing else to use, not because he wanted one. And now that I've told all the Zaytsev fanboys to get fucked, the Mod is actually surprisingly useful for some specific circumstances that require exactly some high shot firepower and also the occassional small bamboo removal service. This is rare (mostly weird event and ranking stuff, or some strats for some enemies you're not meant to fight), but she's there for when you need it. Aside from that, her main use is that at Mod 3, with all her special gear and oath bonuses, she is more powerful in terms of damage than NTW-20, and thus is good for cheesing data sim ranking.

Rifle ★★★★ Trophy Raifu

A small bamboo with a bonus side effect. Unfortunately the side effect isn't enough to make her worth it. A shame really, since she looks nice.

Rifle ★★★★ Usable with Special Equip

Very popular with her artist who keeps drawing outfits, has the 2nd most outfits of any 4 star t-doll (now behind G36), and the beloved baker/cook/chef of the G&K household and does your chores for you. Hailed by CN players as the designated wife of the commander.

Kind of shit as a gun without her unique ammo from 1-4N at which point she's pretty good due to the +RoF (needs calibration)

Mosin-Nagant M1891
Rifle ★★★★ Niche, needs special equip

Good with unique gear and mod3. Less good before digimind evolution. Workable though.

Well EN is now having her special equipment, she can be worth it. Its a very significant boost (Puts her almost on par with NTW for raw ATK stat) and she can 1-shot stuff as an opener pre-skill. She'll be decent but not quite a priority yet.

Of note, she has almost as much ATK as NTW with her chip. This has certain uses to a creative commander.

Probably the easiest among the bamboo spear units to get. Not actually as good as the others, while having the same disadvantages. Her special equipment is basically a Camo Cloak but with +1 RoF.

Heckler & Koch PSG-1

Heckler & Koch PSG-1
Rifle ★★★★ Trophy Raifu

Perhaps 1 of the most disliked T-dolls on the Korea server, for diluting the drop pool from Ouroboros taking away chances at Five-seveN there. To add insult to injury, she then became available on construction. Lacks the firepower and multiplier to do a proper bamboo spear job (RoF-oriented stats with bamboo skill), and probably the worst character voiced by Mingosu.

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.

Rifle ★★★ Core fodder

If you somehow still need another rifle, for some reason, despite M14 and G43 existing, not a terrible candidate. Mostly usable early on when you need a rifle badly yet somehow don't have anything better. Comparable to M1 Garand. If you somehow need one, use whichever you get first since there's no real point having both unless you're collecting.

PING! Not to be confused with the M1 Carbine. …See also: SV-98 wrt usage.

Also uniquely autotargets the rear at all times even when its target isn't dead.
