|Has some funny niche uses, taunt can be useful.
Honestly the part you care about is the damage reduction and taunt, which can be useful depending on the type of enemy you're fighting. She wants very much to be the off-tank, in a classic ARSMG formation, and actually has decent tiles for it.
She is NOT for normal use due to her awful DPS, but the taunt can be useful vs certain enemies in the distance to keep them from interfering with the fight (for example, the new model Army tanks). The taunt can also affect random-target type enemy attacks.
|Surprisingly useful "Armored" SMG
For once, an SMG that does something different. Her skill at max reduces her damage taken per hit by 15, except since it ISNT armour, it cannot be penetrated by armour-ignoring effects (like explosions) or enemy AP. So, massive multi-hit effects kinda just get shrugged off. Also, unlike shotguns, as an SMG she can dodge, so you don't mind taking ticks of 5 damage here and there.
What makes her useful while shield SMGs exist is mainly the much faster ICD.
|Must have all her special gear or she's basically useless
She's not the worst tank, but she's expensive to raise, and she needs her ability active to really tank. Unfortunately her base ability is meh, meaning she needs all three of her special gear equipped to be actually any fucking good. With her gear, she's acceptable, with alright uptime, but her barriers are inevitably going to fail and while the evasion boost is nice, the game has other tanks that are just as good. Still, if you must use her for some reason, there are worse tanks... provided you have the gear for her, anyway.
So make sure you have her gear equipped and leveled, or don't even bother.

|Carried by her mod
Aka Hyaku Shiki if you're a fucking weeb.
Originally 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 (SCAR doesn't count, as she was only rumours). 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, that's 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.
Thankfully she got a mod that made her actually good (although RO existing means you wont use it too much). The base version however suffers from long startup and poor numbers that take way too long to get going.
