Name Class Rarity Useful? Notes

Gsh-18 Mod

Gsh-18 Mod
Handgun ★★★★ Okay-ish, but expensive for what you get

Her Mod 3 unique equip is alright. It lets her punch through lighter armors, and otherwise is excellent at finishing off weakened enemies, rather than wasting full-power shots on them. This is usually a thing with rifles that don't quite instantly giblet their foes. Her tile buffs are pretty okay.

She's alright but not a priority.

Mossberg M500 Mod

Mossberg M500 Mod
Shotgun ★★★★ For if you want shields very badly and SAT8 isn't enough

She has Python-like activation requirements to pop open free shields, which can be useful for some situations. YMMV overall.

Valmet M82

Valmet M82
Assault Rifle ★★★★ Tavor Mk2, Pinkhair boogaloo

Suffers from there being a more famous, better M82, also with pink hair.

This one is basically interchangeable with Tavor, who by now isn't nearly as useful because you should be drowning in high-end ARs. If you are not drowning in high-end ARs for some unfathomable reason, well, she isn't the worst thing ever.

Also has a combo skill with AK Alfa if you do the side story stuff, but AK Alfa isn't exactly wowing the charts either.

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.

AK-15

AK-15
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Do you feel lucky? (RNG-based DPS)

Meet Milo, Miley's (AK-12) tomboy sister, who has literally no chill (you'll see why as soon as you meet her in story).

She is literally the most RNG-based DEFY member, with a chance to deal extra damage. If you'e lucky, she does good damage from the get-go. If you're super lucky, she keeps activating it while her active is going and you annihilate everything.

Because of how her active works, she's not as good at dealing with trash mobs, which can literally cut down her DPS. Be careful when using her, basically. She's REALLY RNG-dependent though.

Also, Abs. Did I mention abs? Yeah. Abs.

CAR

CAR
Machine Gun ★★★ Our writers didn't care, so neither should you

There might not be anything to say about CAR. But there is definitely something to say about the Mercedes Benz E-Class Sedan. The most intelligent E-Class family of all time welcomes a powerful new member to the dynasty. The E400 Sedan model arrives this year, boasting a 3.0L V6 biturbo engine producing 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque — the same powertrain that currently drives its E400 Coupe, Cabriolet and 4MATIC Wagon cousins. Paired with the 9-G-TRONIC 9-Speed automatic transmission and DYNAMIC SELECT, it promises a bracingly smooth way to experience uncommon luxury. Naturally, the 2018 E400 Sedan continues the tradition of E-Class brilliance. Harmonizing advanced automotive intelligence with awe-inspiring interior design, its first-class furnished cabin puts our advanced vehicle systems right at your fingertips — even as its world-class innovations continue to push the boundaries of what's possible in the world of automotive intelligence. "Car-to-X" Communication enables the E-Class to exchange information with similarly equipped vehicles — effectively allowing it to "see" around corners and through obstacles to detect potential hazards. Driver Assistance Systems — including Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®, Active Steering Assist and Active Lane Change Assist — feature intelligent cruise control: They help keep you between the lines, and can even help you shift between them. Inside, the E-Class cabin provides an environment of pure comfort and responsive technology. Flowing lines and vibrant screens provide a striking visual display, while touch controls, aromatherapy and tailored seats indulge all of your senses at once. It's a vehicle that demands to be driven, and more than lives up to the dream. Look for the E400 4MATIC Sedan at your Mercedes-Benz dealership this winter, with an MSRP of $58,900.

Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Not-exceptional secondary SMG

She's basically a 5-star hybrid-type SMG, except she's not exceptional at either role she can do. She's meant to be a sub-tank, where she does not really excel. She's fine for generic use, but not great for high-end stuff.

Mauser C96 Mod

Mauser C96 Mod
Handgun ★★★★ …Her art is nice I guess?

She still doesn't solve any of the previous issues you wished she did, and she tries to solve a problem no one actually has.

The only situation she'd be useful for is with Hunting Impulse MGs, except in most cases she isn't as big a DPS boost as other handguns that don't actually require a mod.

She has some theoretical niche cases where she might work, but you would need to go out of your way to find them.

Base version sucks even more.

Haenel Sturmgewehr 44 Mod

Haenel Sturmgewehr 44 Mod
Assault Rifle ★★★★ Doesn't actually solve any of her problems

Aka StG44… Mod.

Behold, the power of a mod that tries to power her up but leaves her suffering from the exact same problems she did to begin with. Her firepower isn't boosted enough, even with the special equipment. Her skill's initial cooldown is still eight seconds, and you still don't get much bang for your buck.

Base version has a separate entry if you're not depressed enough yet.

Sten Mark II Mod

Sten Mark II Mod
Submachine Gun ★★★★ Has no idea wtf she's doing

She's not sure if she wants to be offensive or defensive, and kinda sucks at both. Her only real purpose for existing is "the story is kinda cute."

Base version isn't great either.

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.

Liberator

Liberator
Shotgun ★★★★ Managed to forget the most important part of being a shotgun

21 Armour and her HP isnt high enough to make up for it at a mere 231 per dummy link (compare 275 for SPAS-12!). Her skill doesn't help her tank, and while her skill kinda helps a little for mass knockback, her ammo count is awful, so you can't rely on it.

She's better than nothing, but you already get SPAS-12 for free.

CAWS

Shotgun ★★★★★ Gimmicky; base stats are cool.

G&K's equal opportunity things means even penguins are accepted, I guess. She has a finnicky, slow, and generally not reliable shield. On the other hand, her gimmick relies on having shields.

She relies quite heavily on outside shields if you want to use her gimmick, so stuff like SAT8 and LWMMG mod will come in handy if you want to do so.

However, while she has good armour, her HP is the worst of the 5 star shotguns, and she doesn't have particularly good tanking gimmicks. She's usable, but probably wont be your first choice unless you want to use her gimmick that badly for whatever fucking reason

DP-12

DP-12
Shotgun ★★★★★ Pretty good defensive/utility shotgun

Even if she sucked, most of you degens would go after her anyway. Thankfully, she's actually pretty good.

Not quite in the same vein as SAT8, as she only shields herself, but the damage reduction effect allows her and allies to tank a bit harder against shots that exceed her armour value, and yes, that applies to shots that ignore armour outright. So basically if she's on the forward center, then positions 4, 5, and 6 benefit from the DR, and so on.

Because of her passive and the 3 second ICD on her skill, she actually has really good uptime overall (similar to but slightly worse than SAT8), and yes, she can be made to pop her shield more often via shooting faster and going into reload faster (though this can produce an odd gap in uptime past the 13s mark).

Shotgun ★★★ It's a free shotgun I guess?

....Serviceable if you have a complete lack of shotguns. Seriously, just pick up a SAT8 next time an event rolls around.
