Name Class Rarity Useful? Notes

Rex Zero 1

Rex Zero 1
Handgun ★★★★ P22 but 4 star and with opposite side tiles.

Another of those HGs that buff based on leadership position, with the Squad Lead getting an alright shield and everyone else getting an FP boost (as opposed to P22 which is positional based). Sometimes you might need that mix. If you do, there you go. Else, she's basically a slightly off-brand P22.

Yurine

Yurine
Machine Gun Special Better than nothing, but if you have better MGs, use those

Suffers from not only being an MG, but an inconsistent one due to her passive. Her stats are alright, but her passive skill is unreliable, not that it matters much since it only activates on reload. The active suffers from the problem of activating slowly enough that you'd expect MGs to have already killed most of what you'd want to stun anyway.

R5

R5
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ G41, but looks less like a slut

See G41's entry. Nothing new is brought to the table. Also I emphasize "looks" because her skin is kinda also slutty.

Webley Revolver

Webley Revolver
Handgun ★★★★★ Good Utility HG

At some point, G&K started running out of real guns and broke out more of the early 20th century guns.

Surprisingly, the dolls with them are actually not godawful.

If she's the leader, she gives a general buff, but whatever, most HGs do that. What makes her interesting is that if she's NOT the squad lead, she buffs the hell out of them, thus making her useful in any formation where you want to pack as much as possible into one doll's ability. Lookin' at you, M4, IWS. (And a few others)

Avtomaticheskiy Pistolet Stechkina Mod

Avtomaticheskiy Pistolet Stechkina Mod
Handgun ★★★★★ Slight improvement, but not an especially large one

Stechkin's base version already got a pass for being usable.

Her mod gives a slight increase in her capabilities buff-wise. Her passive basically tries to turn her into a sorta-DPS to go with her buffs to allies, but TBH you'd be fine leaving it at the slight increase in power Mod 1 gives.

SSAU Vepr

SSAU Vepr
Assault Rifle ★★★ Not really

3* Ribey.

The problem is Ribey herself is only borderline viable to begin with; she has some of the lowest DPS of any AR herself and almost completely relies on her buffs to make up for it, which usually works out to a net positive, but not always.

Vepr has both weaker stats and weaker buffs (both skill and tiles), and you won't get dupes of her. Really no point in bothering with her, the free SAA you get from career quests or any 4+ star AR will give better results.

Heckler & Koch UMP9 Mod

Heckler & Koch UMP9 Mod
Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Not bad, but also really expensive for what she does

On one hand, she's actually not bad, being a flashbang unit with a solid backup skill (If it's vs. a boss, she becomes a shielder tank instead with some minor evasion buffs) that also helps kill mooks faster. On the other hand, she has a mod3's price tag and opportunity cost, at a time when there's lots of nice mods running around.

If you already have a nice set of mod3 dolls, go ahead. If not, consider saving it for later.

...Oh, and you can save yourself the trouble of getting her mod equip. It's kinda pointless on a tank.

Her previous iteration can be found here

Claes

Claes
Machine Gun Special Extremely accurate to the anime and manga (which is not a good thing)

Props for accuracy. She spends the animoo's story just living in the dorms and only coming out for tests or really weird situations where they cant spare bodies, and she's basically the same in the game - she'll be in your dorms a whole lot. She also has three unique items that affect her passive but otherwise all do the exact same thing. She isn't completely useless, but there's not much reason to pick her over other MGs that don't have finnicky mechanics, because you frankly will not need that many MGs anymore.

Borchardt C-93

Borchardt C-93
Handgun ★★★★★ Niche uses

Potentially really fun with 5HG formations. Actually quite good with Desert Eagle. Some people have used her with Parachute Fairy echelons because that also activates her debuff skill effect, but she's not exactly the go-to doll for a lot of formations. The fact she demands the 1 tile isn't helpful either.

M1895 Nagant Revolver Mod

M1895 Nagant Revolver Mod
Handgun ★★★★ Those who disagree with her get shot. (Funny specialist, but good)

Babushka says not one step backward. Every seventh shot, she gives a damage bonus! Also, the thing starts active, making her one of very few buffers with a start-of-battle skill activation. Her first skill is still defensive in nature, and the percentages got bigger. She's actually useful in a number of situations, either for reducing enemy firepower in specific fights (usually Gundam or tank related) or just the straight DPS boost from the get-go. You only really need her up to Mod 2, but the Mod 3 art is cute.

Her pre mod form is here

Colt Single Action Army Mod

Colt Single Action Army Mod
Handgun ★★★★★ You're pretty good! *fingergun*

"Yay, we can all clear singularity now!" Oh wait... :V Fucking Ceia, I swear...

Yeah, she's a little over-hyped, but she's actually a fairly solid unit. A stacking buff every few seconds? Not bad at all. This allows her to buff firepower, accuracy and rate of fire all at once. Her main issue is it takes a few seconds for her skills to REALLY kick in, but she's great for the longer fights that start creeping up here and there, and for things like backing up M4 in her railgun mode. Not super necessary compared to before now that we have lots of buffing HGs, but she's handy for things like ranking maps.

Another fun thing about this mod you might not know is that the passive 2nd skill automatically activates on a cooldown that you can't see, so rifle tile buffs (which speed up handgun cooldowns) make this activate faster.

Her Mod 3 equipment is kinda pointless for her role, though, so unless you like the art or have bad OCD, she's fine at Mod 2.

El Clear

El Clear
Handgun Special Yes

Actually a pretty strong buffer. Her skill is a lie, it isn't actually random: It actually buffs allies in order of Damage Done, skipping herself. This means the top damage contributor is buffed first, then the 2nd, and so on. Once she goes through the list, she starts again from the top. This makes her fairly reliable if your comp has reliable damage. She also gives a HUGE boost with her special equipment. MAKE SURE YOU GET HER SPECIAL EQUIPMENT.

Colt Python

Colt Python
Handgun ★★★★★ Ridiculous Force Multiplication Potential

Forget what Clint Eastwood said, THIS is the most powerful handgun in the world. Somehow packing a .357 Magnum cartridge that deals more damage than .50BMG or whatever the hell Contender is in. Python is a ridiculous handgun that with the right formations, does absolutely disgusting things to the game. She needs her skill at lvl10 to be reliable, but oh boy when it does.

Besides being a handgun with actual DPS (that can get really high), she also acts a buff booster, applying stacking buffs of her own whenever she receives a buff from almost any source, giving them to herself and anyone in her buff tiles. When she gets a RoF buff, she gives a RoF buff. When she gets an Acc buff, she gives an Acc buff. When she gives an FP buff, she too gives FP buffs. And that's just the passive. Her active gives her a stacking self FP buff and counts among "almost any other source", so yeah, triggering it ALSO gives FP buffs to everyone else.

This, on top of amazing buff tiles basically gives her ridiculous performance for a handgun. Just don't think she's some allmighty goddess of doom that wins on her own. What she is is an insane force multiplier when used right, and you need some force to multiply to begin with. Used wisely though, easily 1 of the best HGs in the game.

Cz-52

Cz-52
Handgun ★★★ Budget FP buff if you ran out somehow

Not much to say. If you somehow dont have enough FP buffing handguns (unlikely unless you're noduping handguns and deploying lots of units in ranking) then she's a budget pick. Not bad for a 3 star HG but she won't see use very often simply because you're likely to have better ones lying around.

Serdyukov SPS

Serdyukov SPS
Handgun ★★★ Usable

3* equivalent of Colt SAA. Useful if you're short on REAL AMERICAN GUNS, but given that SAA is easier to get, probably more a trophy raifu.
