AK-74M

AK-74M
Assault Rifle ★★★★ Ambulatory Special Equipment. KALASHNIKOV WILL RISE AGAIN

A fan doll that got so much traction that MICA brought her in. Do you REALLY like the AKs? Do AKs make you feel all tingly inside?

Her own buffs to herself count herself as an AK, so no matter what you get at least a 5% boost if you send her by herself. But frankly if you're not using at least two other AKs, why the fuck are you even using her? If you have AK47's best special equipment, she becomes a proper lord of war with very high DPS. Likewise, she makes AK-15's janky skill work (and this is before the Mod 3 made Ak15 busted as all fuck), boosts AK-12's DPS a considerable amount, and amazingly, solves AK-74U's problems with uptime.

While the percentages don't seem impressive for her self-buff, it's a passive, so you get a 44% boost from the very first shot no matter what in a four AK echelon (74SU + pick 2 other AK dolls you like), which gives her a decent start.

Steyr ACR

Steyr ACR
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Overly finnicky to use

The Steyr ACR is the gun the Pallet Rifles in EVA are based off of, and this one is about as useful. On one hand, it seems like she'd be good for para fairy and its debuffs (you get +25% final damage with that), except it isn't enough to make up for the debuffs still. It's also not very easy to get debuffed. Evaluation may change based on future enemies, but really it's not worth it when you have so many good ARs to choose from.

De Lisle

De Lisle
Rifle ★★★★★ Assistant Gunner type

Falls into the same niche as Strawberrycano where she sucks on her own, but is excellent for supporting others who are actually good. Often paired with the Cano sisters or M200 in 3RF-type setups. A Grape/M200/Nagant Revolver/DeLisle/tank-of-some-sort-type echelon was used in ranking map reruns to kill death stacks.

Lusa

Lusa
Submachine Gun ★★★★★ 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.

CF05

CF05
Submachine Gun ★★★★ 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.

ZB-26

ZB-26
Machine Gun ★★★★★ Useful Support MG

Quite useful, but not great on her own. Her own DPS isn't especially impressive for an MG, but she can give a decent amount of extra ammo to other MGs, which can be worth it or not depending on who you pair her with, in addition to giving shotguns extra armor.

Agent Vector

Agent Vector
Submachine Gun Special 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.

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.

Lewis Gun

Lewis Gun
Machine Gun ★★★★★ Whenever you need armour buffs and/or second mag performance

A gun so good Crozier doesn't want you to know about her! In-game and in real life, a straight upgrade from Chauchat.

Tiles like Negev and a skill that works somewhat similarly with better uptime make her useful in the same circumstances she is, and they work well together if you need ALL the armour stacking.

…Also the replacement cinnamon roll now that M4 turned full edgelord.

TEC-9

TEC-9
Handgun ★★★ Nice for killing things you shouldn't kill

One of the best login dolls, although not one you'll regularly use. Her skill gives a massive 40% FP debuff to enemies, making her a choice pick for doing things you're really not supposed to be doing. Combine with another FP debuff for better uptime to make it extra spicy.

Keep in mind that her skill works best at night.

Heckler & Koch P30

Heckler & Koch P30
Handgun ★★★★ The perfect answer to a question noone asked

A doll that suffered from looking really cool in the previews up until people saw her face and went "wtf is this."

Her skill is unique, and answers a question nobody asked. While not completely useless, there's nowhere really where it's actually required. The RoF boost is.... kind of paltry and borderline useless, so all she has going for her is the movespeed boost.

If you really REALLY hate dealing with dreamer and otherwise suck at micro, this might come in handy. Other fights like typhons however, are more reliant on observation and dealing with the early onrush of mobs, since HGs like Python and Contender, or SMGs like CMS, are fast enough on their own.

Oh right, if you do plan to use her, do note that as usual, you cant do shit while moving. Be wary.

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.

M4A1 Mod

M4A1 Mod
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ A WEAPON TO SURPASS METAL GEAR

After literally years, M4 demonstrates WHY SHE IS THE HEROINE and becomes METAL GEAR.

She keeps all her old benefits but has 5 star multipliers and better stats now. This gets even better when Mod3 when she gets a unique that ups her firepower and ALSO gives her armour, so she can kinda tank in a pinch. Her buff tiles are ALSO slightly improved. Her mod 2 skill also tags enemies and enhances the mod skills of other Anti-Rain units.

The big thing however is the desperation mode. At mod2 onward, when 3 or fewer allied dolls are in battle (you can retreat 2 units to force this, or simply deploy her with a partial strength echelon), she pulls out the portable cannon and proceeds to deal hilarious damage that makes grenadiers wet their pants, as huge AoE blasts firing from every dummy. The blasts are kinda 100% accurate (the main hit can never miss, even at night, but the splash damage can. Its weird), and can partly crit (its complicated), and is meant to be a last ditch thing to save a fight under dire circumstances (of course, we instead abuse it). This is however, a doubled edged sword, as her RoF also goes down, so its possible for some enemies to slip by if you havent taken this into account.

Basically, Mod her first. She's pretty much priority #1 for modding.

Sei Asagiri

Sei Asagiri
Handgun Special DPS Buffs, Shield Projector, More Useful Later

Everyone's favourite White Knight! (Unless you like Tim better, you weirdo.) Same tiles as Grizzly (literally the same), but with a defensive skill instead of an offensive one. She only shields Shotgun, SMG and HG dolls so it isn't full coverage (unless you're an all HG team anyway), but the ability to shield something like KSG is nice. Her shield actually scales based on how damaged a unit she's shielding is, but the exact formula remains a mystery (less HP = more shield though).

Frankly, this isn't very handy on EN as of yet, but it does have its uses down the line when barrage attacks become more common on enemies (or you just want to shield something like KSG and M590).
