|An actually excellent multipurpose MG
Between her two modes AND a passive that helps keep shotguns alive, I don't think there's much more to say other than "she's great, you will probably find a use for her."
Oh hey. DPS shotgun. Like every other DPS shotgun, she has the issue of “when would this even be relevant?” So, I’m not going to focus on that.
The main eye-catching bit of her skill is the instant kill shot once she hits 100 stacks. While useful, it only happens once per battle, so you can’t rely on it. Her real strength comes from her having perfect accuracy, higher knockback chance, and no need to reload. This can make her an absolute monster when knockback is desired.
The problem with this comes with the constraints that you need to follow to really get her going. First, you need another shotgun with her, which isn’t terribly difficult. Next, you need to have her hit 100 stacks. You get one per hit on an enemy, which may sound like a lot, but it isn’t. This takes into account dummy links, as well as the fact that shotguns hit multiple enemies, so you can get up to 25 stacks per shot. (Assuming you’re using bird shot, which you should be using) It’s entirely feasible to get 100 stacks in one of her mags. However, this can be an issue in battles with lower enemy count, which will hamper her stack gains.
|An MG without the main downside (But has a bunch of new ones)
The mightiest Alpaca to ever wield a machine gun. Don't ask. I don't want to have to explain KR server memes.
Ok, she seems amazing. An MG that never runs out of ammo because they act like an AR while reloading. This is flat out amazing if you need an MG shooting at stuff long-term. She doesn't have great burst compared to the other MGs, but she does extremely well for very long term sustain, which...has annoyingly been coming up more and more lately.
Given the skill, one might be tempted to treat her like a normal AR with hilarious early burst damage, but you'd be dumb to do so, because she doesn't get buffs from SMGs and other sources that buff ARs. Also her crit rate is the usual garbage 5% MGs usually get instead of the much better AR rates, and she can't equip PEQs.
That said, she can be a fun mix if you, say, happen to need AR formations to punch through armour (because she can use the absolutely bonkers MG unique ammo types)
