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.

Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Pretty good. DPS or Eva tank flex is nice

kazuki wrote this because xecty is a lazy fuck, it'll probably get rewritten

On skill activation, gain stacks of EVA or FP. The caveat for this is the amount of enemies on the field, the more enemies on the field, the less stacks of FP (base of 3) you get and in exchange, you get more stacks of EVA(max of 6). So what this means is, versus a boss she'll be a DPS SMG with her three stacks of FP, and versus swarms of enemies, she's an evade tank. So be sure to think about how you'll be deploying her.

One particular area she excels in, and probably the most useful, is during night battles. Her tiles allows for you to run her with Mk23 on 5 so you don't need to drop an AR for a HG.

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.

UMP45 Mod

UMP45 Mod
Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Mod1 is an insane bang for your buck The others YMMV.

So if it hasn't been said enough, absolutely get the Mod1 the very second you can. It's 200 fragments and some cores for a fair boost in performance. Extra stats, a bit more FP buff on her tiles, a little extra HP, and an improvement to the slowdown effect on the smoke.

The real problem is her 2nd skill is janky and not extremely practical. It's a little bit of a bonus, but not likely to make or break a fight. So yeah, the Mod2 isn't great. The mod 3 however, gives her a unique equipment that goes in the suppressor slot and is basically a suppressor with better stats (+5 EVA over normal) which helps her tanking ability somewhat. Whether this is worth it up to you, but definitely get the Mod1 at least.

The rest of this is basically the same song and dance where she has top class offensive buffs that continue to remain unmatched among SMGs, so you WILL likely continue to use her.

Submachine Gun ★★★★ Decent Enough

Yet another very small rifle that got classed as an SMG. Basically a 4 star SCW, but with much better tiles and less blah %s on the skill. Stats are ok, but not exceptional. Like SCW, trades some firepower for more +eva on the skill. Whether this is worth it... ehhh YMMV. Personally not, but maybe it'll help for some of you?The big thing is really the nice tiles with some extra shootiness. Not the most impressive offtank but there are worse ones and she'll get the job done for most basic applications.

She's sufficiently straight offtank that there isn't much to say

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.

Thot twin #3?!

And probably the one that's going to give me a fucking heart attack. Yes, her skill has big numbers. Biiiiig nuuuuuuumbers. Now get your dick off your phone screen and start using your brain:

  • If she does not use her active, she slowly gains evasion over time. Emphasis on slowly.
  • If she does use her active, her evasion slowly drops down to "nonexistent", making her a sitting duck if she's tanking.

In a proper tanking role, her buff tiles are literally useless: 500% crit buff x 5% SMG base crit rate = 30% crit rate if you aren't running a suppressor or a crit scope, and if you are using those, your SMGs will have shit-tier accuracy even if you stack reasonable amounts of buffs on them. At the same time you're losing out on AR buffs, which will extremely cripple your DPS. You're better off bringing C-MS or RO635 to buff your back line instead. Even Suomi can buff her evasion up faster than UMP40 could ever hope to.

If she does use her active skill, it'll similarly take incredibly long for her to really ramp up her damage skill – at 18+ seconds to get her damage above 2* ARs, she competes with Negev for the title of "slowest stacking skill in the game", and SR-3MP consistently out-DPSes her even without any buffs. With the UMPs' exclusive equip. Without, her damage output is even worse.

You can build some silly 5 SMG meme echelons around her that sometimes don't totally suck, but unless you know what you're doing, you should put her on cafe duty.

Thompson/Center Contender

Thompson/Center Contender
Handgun ★★★★★ Recommended

She has some of the highest damage and crit buffs in the game, with the best possible tiles ("All around her"), and her skill allows her to override the targeting logic of most other dolls¹, making them focus their fire some, very unlucky fucker (boss if present, otherwise furthest/highest HP/nearest enemy, depending on whether Contender is back/middle/front row). Oh and the skill doesn't wait until impact - the bonuses kicks in as soon as the shot leaves the muzzle. She also can equip AP ammo, which doesn't come up much, but there's a few fights later where this is immensely valuable and if you're using a HG vs armour at night, well... you know. Did I mention she has 40% base crit? She does.

SR-3MP

SR-3MP
Submachine Gun ★★★★★ Really Good but STOP TRYING TO BUILD ECHELONS AROUND HER

AKA Shrimp

A very strong direct damage SMG that badly needs an ACOG sight to boost her acc above the standard abysmal rating that SMGs normally get. She's basically an AR that can take the front row rather than an actual tank, since her idea of tanking is "If enemies are dead, I don't have to dodge right?" Very good for raw firepower type SMG/AR echelons, not so good if the fight(s) drag on and she takes damage.

If you have enough acc boost (which will need fairies, unless you're up against 0 evasion armoured enemies), you can use a critscope too, which makes her even dumber. Warning though that she relies VERY HEAVILY on gear, so be prepared to shell out for sweet sweet +10 Max Calib Bling Gear to truly make her shine. Also trips lolicon radars and may land you in jail.

Handgun ★★★★★ Recommended

Decent Aura shape with very good benefits. 30% RoF/20% Crit is nothing to sneeze at, and even more from her skill. Used heavily in teams that benefit from RoF/Crit boosts (mostly general use Rifles). Be thankful EN got her with little effort. Also has a 97 dodge, if you need something to temporarily take the front. Also, the source of a lot of Korean memes because she was a total pain to get. Also wears a ferret costume sometimes.

Heckler & Koch MP5
Submachine Gun ★★★★ Needs special equip

...You will get her a lot. Most common 4 star SMG. Terror of LSC and master of milk tins. With her unique gear, she's a good dodge tank with a slightly worse invul skill than Thompson or G36C. Without it, she's instead kinda-sorta able to dodge. Which is not bad, but also not great. Has an awkward to use aura unless she's the main tank, which you'd rather have the UMP sisters for. Still better than nothing though. Also gets you into jail. Do not give her protein shakes.

Thot Twin #1

Honestly, what you should be looking for in a beginning tank SMG. Decent HP pool, good dodge, a smoke grenade that slows enemies, good aura to support an AR squad, really the standard to which you'll hold tanks to. Overall, probably the best to have for general use until you need to use evasion tanks like C-MS and MP7.

If you want more info on her mod, look at her mod article.

Assault Rifle ★★★★ Core fodder

Grenadiers in this game suffer from being garbage unless they bring something special to the table. 416 has damage, SOPMOD has being a good AR, Zas has raw speed and area, and FAL has a triple blast. This pile of junk is a bad AK copy with a too-slow to do anything grenade. Cores.

Handgun ★★ Good

Very good buffs, not good in her own stats though. Skill is blah-ish but serviceable at night. When she gets to MOD3, however. Becomes COMMISSAR NAGANT. May or may not land you in jail (or gulag as the case may be). She does say it herself afterall, about your odd taste...
