Dorothy Haze
Submachine Gun Special Versatile, especially in bed

Yes I know that's not really her name. And yes, you'd think the unit whose hands are actual guns would be a handgun, but nope, she's an SMG. MICAAAAAAAA. Anyway out of everyone, probably the most immediately useful on EN because of what EN faces.

She has a pretty interesting skill that reminds some of C-MS. What it is is mildly more complicated, because it comes with good AND bad sides, and allows her to be both a main tank and an off tank. As an off tank, she provides decent firepower with 100% uptime, a debuff no one cares about (-acc) and a really nice buff (constant eva up!) for the main tank, while as a main tank she has permanent Eva up, buffs acc of the same column ("vertical row") but actually makes the off tanks (or just people in the same column) a little less survivable. Skill discussed in more detail in her entry, but its fun stuff.

A problem she has though is the shape of the tiles. That lacking middle row really gets in the way, but she has enough other uses that this isn't too awful if you know what you're doing (For example, you want to buff the everloving bajeezus out of your main tank's dodge instead).

Also she buffs Rifles with her tiles too too, but this doesn't seem to come up all that much.

Submachine Gun ★★★ I guess if you have nothing better

Lower Evade and Higher HP (funnily, the same HP as Beretta 38) than Scorpion or Z62. Italian MGs seem to have a habit of that for some reason.

Has more firepower than Skorpion but less than Z62. Tiles are not the worst, but not great either. The most interesting bit about her is the hilarious controversy when her damage art first came out and was quickly pulled and retouched within about 3 minutes, rather than actual performance.

Would not recommend as a first choice, but if you're scraping the barrel for Molotov chuckers for some reason.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Recommended

Ok, first things first: TURN OFF HER AUTOSKILL AND SET HER TO MANUAL IMMEDIATELY.

Also, NEVER SET HER ON A FRIEND ECHELON EVER.

UPDATE: This is fixed everywhere now so you can ignore that bit.

That out of the way, she's a topnotch high performance SMG with your choice of permanent passive buff. She renders all of the long-duration-but-average-buff Evade type SMGs completely pointless, having more HP than most, and basically infinite duration buffs you can choose.

Your choice of permanent 65% Evade buff (default), 85% Firepower Buff (2nd choice) or 200% Acc buff (3rd choice). Using her skill cycles between all 3 of them (if you cant tell, theyre color coded. Evade is blue, FP is red, hit is orange. If youre colorblind... sucks to be you I guess.) Noone actually uses the Acc buff though. Also if you leave her autoskill on, it constantly cycles between these 3 and it gets annoying. In a friend echelon, you cant turn it off ever so it forever spams it and annoys people.

Oh, and she can load AP ammo, if you for some reason need an SMG that can do that. This does come up sometimes.

Submachine Gun ★★★★★ As useful as sunscreen on August 6, 1945

Aka 100 Shiki if you're a fucking weeb.

A pox upon the 5 star SMG drop pool. The reserve girl holding the current record for "longest time from production to actual release" at over 2 years from being mentioned to being worked on to finally seeing light of day. I think she forgot how to be a t-doll with how long she was left there. She's... pretty I guess. But for the most part, her performance makes you go "Ah, thats why they lost the war."

Possibly utterly shit due to being designed by the same dude that designed possibly the least safe service pistol ever issued in the history of humans shooting each other, but this was 1 of his actually decent guns dammit.

Shield power seems good compared to MDR or SAT8, but MDR increases evade Significantly and SAT8 is a shotgun so she basically takes minimal damage. This has... kinda nothing going for it. It has +firepower if the shield survives and +evade if it breaks, but the delays are so long (8s startup!) that the evade doesnt help much and the FP increase is basically nothing compared to actual damage SMGs who btw, would have popped off way earlier in the fight (even if it was a useful number, its 13 seconds before it kicks in. Not even shotguns take this long to get going.)

Submachine Gun ★★★ Trophy Raifu

The absolute trophy raifu, because getting her is absolute ass, being more annoying than any other chapter exclusive. She is literally the only doll whose farm is so bad I will actually recommend autobattling rather than doing her map over and over. It's THAT bad for what you get and she isn't even worth it except for the 100% completionism.

Her tilebuffs are not great (6% Firepower, 10% RoF directly behind her), and her dodge buff is extremely blah for a 5/8. Her self-damage buff is not the worst while having surprisingly high Firepower for a 3 star SMG, but nowhere near as effective as SR3 or later, similar SMGs. Overall, a trophy raifu that you might be able to press into service if desperate enough, but I really wouldn't count on it.

Submachine Gun ★★ Usable

If for some reason you absolutely must have a 2 star Molotov. You get Skorpion for free really early so she doesn't see much use (though she does slightly outdamage skorpion). Has not great dodge and okay HP. She does however come with an adorable as hell Children's day skin so I wont entirely fault you for wanting to bring it.

Submachine Gun ★★★★ Good

Not to be confused with PP-19. Like all smoke grenade SMGs not named UMP45, she suffers from the fact that UMP45 exists. Basically a cross between UMP45 and UMP9, she uses the same smoke grenade stats and having slightly less evasion and slightly more HP she's about as good at tanking, but her buff tiles are awful compared to UMP45's.

If you're a new player and she drops before UMP45 does, you might consider using her while you keep grinding for UMP45 and RO635. While she's good... well.. UMP45 is just really better.

Submachine Gun ★★★★ Core fodder

She's... not great. Basically a worse Suomi with slightly better base evade, a rather worse multiplier, and considerably worse HP. Her tiles aren't great either. Actually worse than MP5 once MP5's milk tin is taken into account. Buffs aren't anything to write home about either. Given you should be trying to get the UMP sisters early on anyway, you're better off with cheaper tanks until you get those.

Submachine Gun ★★★ Trophy Raifu

She's not really much better than Sten. Only you don't get 3 of her to start with. While she's not really worse, getting only 1 copy + getting her way later than you'd find it useful work against her. Think of it as the difference between getting a slightly better car or a car that is not noticeably worse but you get free insurance with it. Both will be replaced shortly either way unless you really, REALLY, want to play 3 star frontline.

AKA Swedish K, aka m45 aka the REAL bakery girl, aka CINNAMON ROLLS AGAIN!? 2 star smoke grenadier. If, for some reason, you're doing a 2 star challenge she's cheap and the smoke helps (and she badly needs it because her stats otherwise are pretty low). Otherwise you really, REALLY should be working on getting UMP45 or something instead.
