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.)

The madmen finally did it. While she saw some re-evaluation in Continuum Turbulence onward for older servers, the introduction of M82A1 in the same event kind of also filled in a similar role, but better. Now, with a fairly quick 4s ICD for not much loss in damage and .5s between shots, she finally can stop being compared to the bamboo rifles by people who dont know better (a role she is utterly shit at) and settles into her new niche of removal of threatening middle-ish HP units such as Gundams and the like early on, and if you have the unique equipment from Singularity ranking, her initial pre-skill DPS isn't too horrid either. It's still not widescale use, but it's an actual use that can definitely come in handy.
