Type-4 Self-Loading Rifle (4-Shiki)

Type-4 Self-Loading Rifle (4-Shiki)
Rifle ★★★★ Can shoot through enemies so kinda useful

Basically M1 Garand hit by a Japanizing beam courtesy of the IJN (which is why she has a sailor uniform). ...And then it changed her skill to something actually vaguely useful.

Every 3rd shot she fires is a line AoE that doesnt miss, but sadly cant crit. This is actually pretty cool at night vs evasive enemies, like Uhlan formations in a post CT-environment (Uhlan formations start having evade), though actually a bit of a DPS loss on nonevasive enemies.

Not exactly a normal use rifle, but the niche she has comes up fairly often so having 1 on hand is useful.

QBU-88

QBU-88
Rifle ★★★★★ Iffy in use, has some potential

Imoko's much less loved daughter, because at some point she apparently adopted a Kongou class Battlecruiser. Unlike G36 who gets more costumes than any 2 dolls combined, QBU has had all of... 1.

Performancewise, she joined the weird rifle pile by being another theoretically good on paper weapon that has issues in practical field use. Basically, every few times she fires at an enemy, she causes an explosion with a 1.5 unit radius, and when she pops her active, she hits for less than a normal small bamboo's worth of damage and then causes an explosion on top.

The bamboo skill adjustment was a boon for her, since EN will never have to deal with her dumb 8s original cooldown and can now fire it off at 4s, making her usable as an anti-medium-scale unit, kinda handy vs paradeus, but otherwise not exceptional.

Was actually handy in Shattered Connexion, but kind of questionable before then. YMMV.

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.

Barrett M82A1

Barrett M82A1
Rifle ★★★★★ Has some niche potential but not necessary

Yes, a gun people have wanted forever. The Light Fifty. Also known to some as Inorigun for the obvious reasons. (If it isnt, then the joke wouldnt be funny to you anyway)

A really weird... not-quite-a-bamboo who gets stronger the more battles the echelon has been in. Has 3 shots per battle, and the final shot is pretty strong, but it's VERY awkward to use. Can be used to kill stuff early (she was actually better at it than Kar98 then) such as say, Gundam removal, but these days with the existence of early charge bamboo rifles + M200, she isn't quite as top notch at it as she once was. She still works though.

Potentially better for nodupers than people who spam the superpopular rifles.

Mk12 Special Purpose Rifle

Mk12 Special Purpose Rifle
Rifle ★★★★ Middle of the Pack. Nothing special.

An RF that was originally slated to be so good that they nerfed her before her release. Unfortunately this current incarnation is nothing special. +30% each to Crit Damage and RoF is a ballpark 65% DPS increase, +/- a bit due to RoF depending on the level yours is, assuming 100% crit rate. This is... not inspiring compared to what some other rifles you already have might put out. You can fit her on whichever style RF team if you want to use her. If you want a top end version of this, wait for R93, who has a better version of the gimmick.

LaRue Tactical OBR (Official Boob Rifle)

LaRue Tactical OBR (Official Boob Rifle)
Rifle ★★★ Meh

Notable mostly for confusing me on which was her damaged art and which was her normal art when I first saw the previews, she was introduced at a dark time for new RFs.

Basically a 3* T-5000. The problem is of course that 3 star versions of 4 star guns rarely work well and while T-5000 sees some use dealing with armored dodgers at night, this thing doesn't have nearly enough stats to make it work. If the target isn't dodging, she does about as well as G43. Except G43 is basically free because she's a 2 star and is more likely to end up with a mod down the line than this thing.

FN Ballista

FN Ballista
Rifle ★★★★★ Janky as fuck but potentially has some use

This a doll that's basically all or nothing. Her skill is a weird stacking system that isn't actually as it appears. She puts marks on the enemies, and then doubleshots those marked enemies. Seems easy enough right? Except oh boy that's not actually how it works. The marks are for targeting only - the number of times she doubleshots is stored on the doll, not the enemy, so the number of times she gets to throw out active markers is how many times she gets to doubletap, even if the markers disappear or the marked target is killed by something else.

The problem is of course the times are impractical and almost pointless unless her skill is lvl10. Another problem is while it has some potential uses, other top of the line rifles can match or exceed her general performance.

Type-56 Carbine (SKS)
Rifle ★★★ M14 exists. Use her instead.

The Chinese copy of the SKS. Generic 3 star FP rifle that has nothing notable about her besides her somewhat lewd damaged art, and even that's not really much compared to some of the others. She's as boring as she looks, basically.

In a vacuum, she isn't the worst rifle in the game (that "honour" currently belongs to PzB and JS05). But she has less RoF than M14, less Firepower than M14, is harder to acquire than M14, and doesn't have a mod like M14.

...So really, the fact M14 exists basically completely invalidates her existence. MURRICA.

Iron Brigade Armory XM3 Rifle

Iron Brigade Armory XM3 Rifle
Rifle ★★★★ If you're STILL short of night rifles by the time you get her somehow I guess?

Let's be fair, you take 1 look at her design and you saw that gag coming.

Stats aside, she's basically an improved G43 statwise. Unfortunately unlike G43 she isnt available at the start, since you need to be at chapter 10 to ever get her, by which time you SHOULD have some leveled rifles (or else you would have suffered even getting into a position to farm her to begin with), She is also much more expensive.

Good at night (hampered primarily by her slow ICD, which can be a problem depending on enemies), but is weaker during the day. Due to a mix of being late to the party and not being a very good at general purpose use, YMMV. Saw some ranking use due to her really high acc at 1 point, but not exactly as famous for it as some other RFs were. You will however get so many of her during 10-4E farm that she's often seen as free cores for a reason.

United States Rifle, Caliber 7.62 mm, M14 MOD
Rifle ★★★★ Khorne Approved

Modded version of M14

What's there to say? Blood for the blood god, etc.

She gets bigger %s on her self buff and on Mod2 she buffs her own crit damage. You really want, if possible, to get that Oath ring on her for the extra stats at Mod3. While the new skill %s seem low, combined they pretty much exceed Lee Enfield's self-boost and part of it is a passive. It retains all her old advantages, but just embiggens the numbers a bit. Basically, she can provide IWS-level DPS (overall, not per shot) while maintaining her high (for an FP rifle) RoF, making her very efficient. Generally rated "probably 1 of the best mods to work on after you're done modding AR team" by older servers.

Karabiner Model 31 (K31)

Karabiner Model 31 (K31)
Rifle ★★★★ Excellent Daylight Rifle, Less so at Night

A swiss straight pull bolt action that SOMEHOW apparently fires faster than Semiautomatic rifles (She literally shoots faster than WA2000). That joke about the swiss replying to the Germans that if half a million of them invaded, the quarter million strong militia would shoot twice and go home? Someone sure took it to heart.

The downside of course is she debuffs her own accuracy when she does. This is not a problem during the day, and usually isn't a problem vs armored enemies, but it does become problematic when enemies at night start having dodge scores even while armoured, making her less good at those sorts of targets. In broad daylight though, go nuts.

Also a lot of artists seem to give her yandere qualities for whatever reason. Probably the knife.

Karabinek wz. 1929
Rifle ★★★ Trophy Waifu

Aka wz.29.

Supposed to be an RoF version of M14, but her low stats really hamper this. M14 at least solves her low FP issue with buffing it, but this doesn't work as well. Arguably less useful than G43.

Desert Tech Stealth Recon Scout (SRS)

Desert Tech Stealth Recon Scout (SRS)
Rifle ★★★★★ Good at night when they add evasive armoured enemies

Another piece of Jarv bait. Kind of. Also a vegetarian who dislikes the smell of meat... which of course other servers produced fanart of that has... interesting explanations that involve "does not love the spell of napalm in the morning.".

Statwise, the FP-buffing counterpart to T-5000; stats wise she's mostly between G28 and Lee-Enfield, and so a reasonable alternative for either if you need another another FP selfbuffer for some reason. Like T-5000, she had fairly meh ratings on other servers since while you basically had other options and she kinda isn't as good as Lee Enfield during AND is more expensive an option than G28, but eventually got her break when they started introducing enemies with Armour and Evade at night (EN got a taste during Va11halla event, but it'll be awhile before they return), where she did pretty well. Until then, she's actually not as cool as T-5000 (since RoF Rifles have more general use).

Gepard M1

Gepard M1
Rifle ★★★ Wall decoration

A self-depreciating doll that has severe confidence issues, which is suitable enough because IRL, it was so shit it was canned in favour of the less craptastic M2 revision.

Ingame, it's no better. With big bamboos you go big or you go home, and with the M1, you go home. Too weak stats, too weak multiplier, you're better off bringing Springfield and Mosin to resolve the battle in half as much time. If you're really in the market for a bamboo at all, which isn't terribly often.

That said she is 1 of very few login dolls to get really nice skins and so far all of her skins have actual stories attached.

Stella Hoshii

Stella Hoshii
Rifle Special Trash Cleaner

She has very weird mechanics. I want to say something witty but that's really how it works. The most immediately noticeable thing is that her damage is actually cut in half and she fires twice. This seems odd but no, its not just a visual thing either, and both shots actually can end up on different targets. The first shot uses normal RF targeting, while the other has real time targeting to always shoot the farthest target. Vs heavily armoured (enough that AP rounds wont go all the way through) or high HP enemies, this can be bad. Or it can be excellent at trash clear.

Also note that because she shoots twice, it only takes half as many firing cycles as it says on the skill to get stacks, as she gets 2 stacks per cycle (1 per shot). It also has interactions with Sei and Jill that are in the detailed page.
