Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Pretty much the best straight Grenadier

If you're looking for an 8s Grenadier, well, she was always a very strong choice, and now she's pretty much almost the default one for most circumstances by sheer stats and having the 2 accessory slots. Improved Grenade performance (not that most enemies will notice) and bonus MIRVs on top of that. She does get bonuses with M4, but due to the fact M4's marks affect her targeting (and potentially are buggy with her MIRVs), using her with M4 is not always ideal.

Aside from that, it's the same old SOP, but with a unique equipment (thats pretty much just an improved Eotech) and bigger numbers.

M4A1 Mod

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.

Assault Rifle ★★★★★ If you don't use her, you are wrong

The pinkhaired tryhard who is absolutely every bit as good as she says she is. 1 of the best sustained DPS ARs in the game, and can actually hit the RoF cap on her own. She can actually outDPS OTs-14 and 9A91 at night against up to moderately armoured opponents (moderate. Dont try to send her vs Hydras)

As a bonus, her mod skill ups her DPS some more by making her pull out ANOTHER gun and throwing extra attacks that do a % of her main damage, with more damage if paired with M4Mod.

Her mod skill however, does look absolutely retarded unless you're in her mod 3 form. Normally she's supposed to pull out another gun, but since her school skin and base sprite dont have that animation, she instead fires from her scope.

Colt RO635

Colt RO635
Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Recommended

A high class SMG that you get for free (and even better, starts at lvl90 with 5 links when you get her now) 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, but they're not amazing either). 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.

Did I mention you get her at lvl90 and 5x linked? That's REALLY helpful if you're starting out.

Assault Rifle ★★★★ Good with her special equip

With her special gear, she turns into a hilarious tank with 20 armor and 90 evade (more evade when oathed) which, while not ideal for most things, has its uses. Her stun grenade can also be handy.

Not, however, a DPS, unlike virtually all other ARs.

Assault Rifle ★★★★ Good

If it's not clear by now, AR team is pretty good. has the weakest grenade of the 3 major grenadier ARs (FAL/416/Herself), except she's the best actual AR and will outDPS FAL and 416 in direct fire due to good stats and having the same accessory/stat layout as AR15. Less desirable now that G11 and such are out, but still definitely not terrible as far as grenadiers go. Will not perform to the level of a proper direct fire AR though.

Assault Rifle ★★★★ Recommended

The cinnamon roll heroine. One of three ARs that buffs other ARs. A decent DPS who buffs other DPS. Later upgrades into a fucking metal gear.

Spikes Tactical AR-15

Spikes Tactical AR-15
Assault Rifle ★★★★ Not as good as before, but still free and still 1 of the better things you get

AKA ST AR-15, aka Star-chan. High stats, two accessory slots, and Unique Ammo (that you need to farm for) that outperforms regular HV ammo and doesn't require forever to build up. While not considered as OP as she once was, she remains a good unit to raise; if you partially raise her, she basically hits close to RoF cap on her own.
