Liberator

Liberator
Shotgun ★★★★ Managed to forget the most important part of being a shotgun

21 Armour and her HP isnt high enough to make up for it at a mere 231 per dummy link (compare 275 for SPAS-12!). Her skill doesn't help her tank, and while her skill kinda helps a little for mass knockback, her ammo count is awful, so you can't rely on it.

She's better than nothing, but you already get SPAS-12 for free.

CAWS

Shotgun ★★★★★ Gimmicky; base stats are cool.

G&K's equal opportunity things means even penguins are accepted, I guess. She has a finnicky, slow, and generally not reliable shield. On the other hand, her gimmick relies on having shields.

She relies quite heavily on outside shields if you want to use her gimmick, so stuff like SAT8 and LWMMG mod will come in handy if you want to do so.

However, while she has good armour, her HP is the worst of the 5 star shotguns, and she doesn't have particularly good tanking gimmicks. She's usable, but probably wont be your first choice unless you want to use her gimmick that badly for whatever fucking reason

DP-12

DP-12
Shotgun ★★★★★ Pretty good defensive/utility shotgun

Even if she sucked, most of you degens would go after her anyway. Thankfully, she's actually pretty good.

Not quite in the same vein as SAT8, as she only shields herself, but the damage reduction effect allows her and allies to tank a bit harder against shots that exceed her armour value, and yes, that applies to shots that ignore armour outright. So basically if she's on the forward center, then positions 4, 5, and 6 benefit from the DR, and so on.

Because of her passive and the 3 second ICD on her skill, she actually has really good uptime overall (similar to but slightly worse than SAT8), and yes, she can be made to pop her shield more often via shooting faster and going into reload faster (though this can produce an odd gap in uptime past the 13s mark).

Shotgun ★★★ It's a free shotgun I guess?

....Serviceable if you have a complete lack of shotguns. Seriously, just pick up a SAT8 next time an event rolls around.

INSAS

INSAS
Assault Rifle ★★★ Cores!

She's every bit as good as the real thing. By which I mean India went back to using AKs shortly after.

Heckler & Koch MP5 Mod

Heckler & Koch MP5 Mod
Submachine Gun ★★★★★ The Milk Tin's power grows

With the advent of her mod, she goes from being Thompson's kouhai to the strongest force shielder available. Through the power of milk, when she lowers her force shield, she gains a decent evasion buff to turn her into a mixed force shield and evasion tank. While the buff requires there to be multiple enemy packs, any amount of evasion to go along with the force shield is welcomed. Oh, did I mention she also buffs rifles with her tiles now? That's a thing. The buffs she does provide aren't particularly useful for rifles, but it may come in handy.

She DOES require her unique equipment from the night map to function effectively, for the milk tin is all powerful. The mod equipment, however, is pretty garbage.

M1895 CB (Potato Digger)

M1895 CB (Potato Digger)
Machine Gun ★★★★ Tryhard's best friend

With gear, she effectively has a 45 round mag, although shots after her "normal" ammo capacity decrease her acc while upping her FP. This may be good or bad depending on what you're shooting, but she's perfect for low or 0 def enemies that you normally throw MGs at. If you can't figure a use for this, you're retarded.

A quirk though is if she moves after beginning to go into her reserve ammo, her gun will be considered "empty" and she will need to reload.

ACR

ACR
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Looks good, doesn't quite live up to it. Not awful at least.

She introduces herself as Bushmaster ACR, except she fires in full auto, meaning she's actually a Remington ACR. This is kind of annoying. They should have just let her use her original name of Magpul Masada, seriously. It sounds cooler.

That aside, she has the potential to be stronger than AR-15! ...If you don't mind crippling the rest of your echelon's DPS to do so (Dusk has math figures in the expanded section).

She's honestly not bad, with 65% DPS up baseline and can get free damage stuff in if you have debuff effects already going, but she's not critical or anything. Basically suffers from "there's lots of super good ARs and she's not super good enough to displace the ones you already have."

Heckler & Koch UMP9 Mod

Heckler & Koch UMP9 Mod
Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Not bad, but also really expensive for what she does

On one hand, she's actually not bad, being a flashbang unit with a solid backup skill (If it's vs. a boss, she becomes a shielder tank instead with some minor evasion buffs) that also helps kill mooks faster. On the other hand, she has a mod3's price tag and opportunity cost, at a time when there's lots of nice mods running around.

If you already have a nice set of mod3 dolls, go ahead. If not, consider saving it for later.

...Oh, and you can save yourself the trouble of getting her mod equip. It's kinda pointless on a tank.

Hanyang Type 88 Mod

Hanyang Type 88 Mod
Rifle ★★★★ Wtf how can a shit gun be this good. Seriously, go get her already.

Every bit as good as she used to be awful; this is quite a feat, since she used to be IMMENSELY awful. You can make a fairly convincing argument she's a better value mod than AR team these days. She's that good. She's a little hard to use, sure, but she has piercing on a rifle and all sorts of minor extras.

She does have the issue of "can't equip PEQs" and thus suffers as much as any other rifle at night, but a rifle capable of dealing with enemy clusters a la M4 is very nice to have in general. She gets very heavy use in rankings for a reason.

Ironically for a rifle with a night-oriented skill, she works best during the day, because yeah, that issue about not being able to use PEQs.

Her original page can be found here.

SSG 3000

SSG 3000
Rifle ★★★★ It's literally M200 but worse

There's not really much to say about SSG...She's literally a 4 star version of M200. What do you want from me?

The main use she has is for no-dupe players or using her in SC ranking where she has a map bonus.

Desert Eagle

Desert Eagle
Handgun ★★★★★ The Most Powerful Anmiface

She's an Anmiface, which some people are conflicted over. Unlike the other Anmifaces, she didn't get disowned by her mom (unlike a certain Goat). Stat-wise, remember how much I gushed about Python? She's the more selfish version, with a skill that would have really been nice the stage AFTER you get her.

There's not much to say besides "there's a reason there were so many videos of her beating shit up in 5 HG groups." She makes things with shields cry. She does all sorts of shenanigans that ups her rate of fire and also makes anything with HP type shields cry (she can actually utterly CRUSH bosses like Ares with 5HG formations because of this) and can get an effective 531% DPS increase if her skill is going full tilt on 1 target (like a boss), putting her DPS well over most T-dolls.

Like all HGs, she does require you to have some idea of what you're doing, but the reward is basically a hand cannon that Agent Smith would be proud to use.

Heckler & Koch HK416 Mod

Heckler & Koch HK416 Mod
Assault Rifle ★★★★★★ She's still insufferable but she's actually good now

It's a shame she has voice lines now, since the best part about her mod was shutting up her annoying voice. But alas, you'll probably be hearing it, because unlike her basically not-worth-the-effort base form, this one is actually decent. The big change is the six second ICD, which lets her fire grenades within the lifetime of many fights in a meaningful way, unlike most other grenadiers.

This ironically makes her useless for Chapter 11 farming, but thankfully she's good for Chapter 12 farming.

The grenade itself is buffed somewhat, and the ICD also makes her a bit more stable than SOP for some fights (SOP retains the problem of "You need the enemy to still be worth hitting with grenades 8 seconds in"). Overall, decent grenadier that you'll likely use a fair bit for farming and events, helped by 416 playing a big role in a lot of event maps and thus getting stat buffed.

Oh, and get her equip when you can. it isn't stellar, but it beats the hell out of a frame that doesn't contribute to DPS.

Machine Gun ★★★★★ Probably will be a primary for many tryhards

She has extremely high firepower that gets reduced by her skill, with the lowest accuracy of any 5 star MG, and a mere 9 round base capacity. What you get in exchange for this is an amazing two-part skill that provides piercing without any stupid strings or conditions to start. Yes, her AP values drop, yes her FP is reduced by the skill, but this won't matter in most contexts where you'd actually want her. You start the fight with piercing and have the option to go into a single target mode that ups her acc and firepower.

Now, her stats in single target mode don't seem exceptional, but they're more than enough for general work to get her to the battles where she would be good (assuming there are any for that map, this is still on you to get her to those), and also she has the benefit of it working from the get-go without any timing issues.

Like anything with piercing you need to position her properly, or else you waste everything. This is super important because piercing is basically the entire reason you use her to begin with, so make sure you look at what formations the enemy actually has first and position her based on that. Seriously. if you're tryhard enough to use her but not tryhard enough to figure out your enemy? You're probably retarded. Don't be that guy.

Basically you want her shooting through or across enemies, such that you get as many hitbox contacts as possible.

Henrietta

Henrietta
Submachine Gun Special Decent SMG that is also very memeable

The meme potential of a girl with a camera and a smiling face is good enough reason to have her (now that we have multiple secretaries), but she's also not half bad as a combat unit. She gets a shield, and having the shield gives her FP buffs, while losing the shield means she's getting EVA buffs. The uptime is quite good, so she's not a bad side DPS (she has a 69% damage buff at 2 stacks and 119.7% at three stacks) that can sub-in for off-tanking and can even work as a main tank (44% eva at two stacks and 72.8% at 3). The problem is the optimal timing can be a little iffy, but she's alright for AFK fighting since it'll generally be good enough, just not fully optimized. The tradeoff between her and SR-3MP is just uptime vs power.

As expected of the main girl I guess.

Oh, and her tiles are weirdly shaped, but this is not uncommon for off-tank dolls anyway.
