Noel

Noel
Handgun Special Trophy Raifu

Imagine how bad Noel was at her lowest point in her own series. ...Now imagine its worse.

Somehow arguably less useful than P7 who has similar tiles, and her skill is kind of awful. She's a perfect storm of not being particularly good at any 1 thing while also not being really acceptable at any of them. Also she jumps forward during her skill.

This can have unexpectedly bad effects on enemy positioning sometimes, including units... uh.. simply walking past her, to the map edge, which makes you lose. There are arguably some scenarios where she's useful, but those are... niche to the extreme and honestly if you're one of the people who CAN pull those off, you dont need me to explain anything to you.

Handgun Special DPS Buffs, Shield Projector, More Useful Later

Everyone's favourite White Knight! (Unless you like Tim better, you weirdo.) Same tiles as Grizzly (literally the same), but with a defensive skill instead of an offensive one. She only shields Shotgun, SMG and HG dolls so it isn't full coverage (unless you're an all HG team anyway), but the ability to shield something like KSG is nice. Her shield actually scales based on how damaged a unit she's shielding is, but the exact formula remains a mystery (less HP = more shield though).

Frankly, this isn't very handy on EN as of yet, but it does have its uses down the line when barrage attacks become more common on enemies (or you just want to shield something like KSG and M590).

Agent 416

Agent 416
Assault Rifle Special KindamaybesortaIguess (Niche Use)

Proof that the universe contractually requires 416 to be a bitch, given trying to fix her shitty personality is what caused the problem in the first place. More hilarious is she's not even an HK416, but the Patriot Arms clone.

Instead of being a grenadier, she's basically a mine layer, planting mines that seem grenade-like, but the big thing is that THEY DO NOT IGNORE ARMOR. They do still do full damage to all units caught in the blast though.

She is however, pretty fast, taking only four seconds to use her skill for the first time, and having all three of her special gear means you start the battle with some mines in place already. This is potentially useful for something.

Handgun ★★★★★ Recommended

Good overall damage buffer with bonus evade for the tank. Usable in lots of formations, and a component of bamboo spear teams.

Norinco NZ75
Handgun ★★★★★ Niche uses

Another fucking CZ-75 clone, this time from China. Unfortunately for her, her buffs and skill are all over the place, and most of the time you're better off with a more focused HG – Type-92 gives you a lot more dodge and not significantly lower DPS, Grizzly gives you a whole fucking lot more DPS, Welrod is a better debuffer, etc.

She has some uses but generally, you have a specific idea in mind where you need everything she offers at the same time, and will probably not need me to explain what your exact need is in such a case.

FN Herstal FAL

FN Herstal FAL
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

The Right Arm of the Free World

One of the few ARs to offer multiple grenades in one skill. 6s to drop 3 intermediate grenades (ironically making her closer to the AR of the grenadier world, in a sense) which can cover a nice hefty area. Kind of shitty in day battles because frankly, shit won't (or shouldn't) live long enough to even fire a grenade, and she's meh as an actual AR.

At night however, the wide area, and the fact grenades ignore armor and evade make her a decent supplement for nuking scouts and the like, with limited anti-armor capability if you need it. Shines especially in floors 95-99 of Defence Drill for those reasons.

Heckler & Koch G41

Heckler & Koch G41
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

Kind of fetishized and sort of jailbait, but the standard by which most day battle ARs are judged by, and thus literally average. She's pretty much pure vanilla and a decent direct fire AR. Worse than G11, but still decent. Potentially usable with SR-3 if you need to. Pretty much the core of many second string teams.

While her equipment from CT ranking makes her better, it doesn't make her stand out too much more compared to the many high end ARs we have now. Still ok to use though!

QBZ Type 95

QBZ Type 95
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

Arguably worse G41. Earlier start and better uptime, but lower %s. Mainly useful for when you absolutely must begin bursting at 2s in and the fight isn't long enough for otherwise better ARs to get their skills in. For the most part, kinda eh, but its easier to buff her than her sister. Decent as a second-stringer for a backup AR squad, but will never really be 1 of the top stars outside her special circumstances. Her exclusive equipment makes her a tad bit better, but 95 still drags below other ARs.

QBZ Type 97

QBZ Type 97
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

RoF version of Type-95. Can be better than her sister depending on buffs. Keep away from armor units. Do be careful about overfeeding her RoF buffs as its easy to cap it. Feed her firepower instead - she does well with those. Her exclusive equipment makes her better, very well usable, but when you need the stats the most (ranking maps), she rarely can use it, as night battles are quite often what you'll be dealing with.

Heckler & Koch G11

Heckler & Koch G11
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Not as recommended as before but still really good during the day

The most German unit in the game, in that she is both exceptionally lazy and surprisingly good at her job whenever she can be bothered. The source of 90% of HK416's misfortune. Zombie movie afficionado, and owns all 26 seasons of The Flying Dead (Im not making this up.) Originally one of the most broken ARs in the game until digimind evolution and team DEFY showed up. First member of Club "MGs who pretend to be ARs." Max out her skill, point and laugh as she destroys everything. Skill has poor uptime which makes her worse than AN94 in 90% of situations (and arguably worse than STAR Mod3), but still pretty good.

Do note that her skill is completely useless against armoured enemies, which will become an issue later, when more and more armoured enemies appear.

Taurus ART556

Taurus ART556
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Usable

Similar to G41 in performance (actually slightly worse, but not significantly) and the artist just drawing their weird fetishes that land you in jail. She's basically a 5 star equivalent of Tavor sharing the primary weakness of taking 6s to startup instead of 4. The skill is good while active, but YMMV. She's not exceptional compared to the top end performers, but she's not exactly a slouch either.

Zastava M21

Zastava M21
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

Another grenadier that's not useless. Her grenade fires after just 4 seconds, making it actually matter, and either makes hit enemies take 115% damage for 3 seconds (3 or more hits) or buff her own damage by 60% for 8 seconds.

The self-buff is not too useful, giving her damage output comparable to G41/FNC, but since she hits with a wide blanket, it's fairly likely she will instead trigger the debuff which, while not particularly useful on EN RIGHT NOW (due to weaker enemies), becomes increasingly valuable later on when enemies gain ever more health, and letting your other units deal bonus damage ends up being really useful.

Additionally she shines at corpse dragging, allowing you to corpse drag four units for the cost of supplying one unlinked(!) AR on certain maps. For that alone, you'll want to keep two of them with lvl60 stats, preferably at 1 link.

Kel-Tec RFB
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

Her skill consists of two parts:

  • Make her use rifle targeting (backline priority): Not all that useful – if the backline really is dangerous, you want it killed now, not after six seconds, and better bring actual rifles or fairies to deal with it.
  • Buff herself: Her stats are good to begin with, and the buff is beefy – this makes her an excellent AR for all purposes.

She's stronger than most 5* ARs (including G41), but doesn't quite make the cut to AUG/AR-15/G11 levels of damage output; at night she's one of the more useful daylight ARs due to her high firepower and accuracy self-buff. (But, again, outclassed by the night royalty.)

Overall solid, but not amazing, with a mostly useless gimmick. Her biggest problem is AR power creep, she'll be outclassed further down the line, which makes her not much of a priority now.

T91 Assault Rifle

T91 Assault Rifle
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Usable, if you ignore the core cost.

Known on other servers as 5 cores .

She has marginally stronger performance to 9A-91 despite her significantly higher bases due to her considerably lower FP buff. You're honestly better off using daylight ARs at night rather than working on her due to cost.

Crit buff generally doesn't help much at night for ARs not named STAR15 or SOPMOD (unless you're doing something weird), and her FP boost isn't enough improvement over a day AR to make it worth your trouble. Even worse, Crit is calculated AFTER armor, so that makes her double sad.

S&T Daewoo K11

S&T Daewoo K11
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

Totally not Architect in disguise. We think. Probably. A grenadier that's actually pretty ok at general use simple because she fires the grenades within a time frame where everything isn't fucking dead yet, and she fires a huge volley (1 per link) that finishes off targets if the first grenade doesn't kill them. On the flipside, firing 1 grenade per link ALSO means she doesn't reach full power until 5x linked, and also means every dummy lost is a loss in grenade power, unlike literally every other grenadier.

Her main problem is literally random targeting, so the grenades may or may not land in the ideal pattern, but they're at least hitting things and you get lots of grenades, so at worst the spread is not ideal rather than wasted
