FN Herstal P90

FN Herstal P90
Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Strong Main Tank

Everyone knows the joke by now. If not, you've been living in a hole for the past 20 years. Now more associated with Russia (who people the gun was specifically meant to shoot at, as it was part of a PDW project that worried about armoured Russian soldiers) than with Belgium (which many people dont seem to realize is a country). Mostly noted on older servers for an utterly ABYSMAL rate which led to drama that resulted in Mica integrating official recipes into the client + promising more common true core masks. Also, surprised people by being drawn by LM7 instead of Suisai, despite being an FN product.

For performance, she's a fairly powerful dodger with a bonus offensive function, and her tiles aren't bad. In terms of sheer survival potential, she's 1 of the best, although occasionally stuff acts weird due to her shadow clones (which btw, interact WEIRDLY with the game). Of note, the shadow clones only copy the number of active remaining links, so you do want to keep as many links intact as possible for that (or not, see detailed notes). Overall, a very strong main tank candidate that is really good at her survival job.

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.

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 ★★★★ 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.

Colt RO635

Colt RO635
Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Recommended

A high class SMG that you get for free, providing well balanced stats, and a very powerful tanking skill. -Enemy ATK power (nevermind her own +evade!) that goes off in the first 3 seconds, makes tanking the initial contact much easier, and is usable even from an off-tank position. Can easily be a main or off-tank, combos well with UMP45 defensively (though she doesn't offer much for DPS), and passable tile buffs (that doesn't clash with anyone's). Her main weakness is she has very bad uptime (5/12) compared to some other SMGs, but the quick startup and utility (and the fact most fights are short anyway) make up for it.

KBP PP-90
Submachine Gun ★★★★ Usable

Actually has one of the highest evade ratings among the SMGs and posseses a skill with really good uptime (15/16!), but kinda eh tile buffs. So why just "usable?"... Because C-MS exists, and does it better in every way. In addition to having other features that make it better like being able to increase damage or accuracy or evade passively, permanently, and it is very hard to recommend her knowing that something superior in every way is kinda... you know, there.

Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Niche uses

A weird hybrid tank that... doesn't have a great base evade, but has a fairly powerful self-evade buff with very high uptime. Usable when fight drags on for some reason.

Has good dodge. Skill is moar dodge. Boss exclusive, but if you want a tanky 3* SMG (instead of trying to roll for a better one for some reason) well...
