RIIC Base Skills
Botzu's Quick Evaluation
+ A cheaper alternative to ShiraYuki
+ A good unit to bring into Annihilation 2 to clear out mobs
+ Skill increases splash of her attack to the size of Meteorite's S1 for a decent duration
- The cheaper costs comes with much lower ATK
- No ATK modifiers or special utility makes all other AoE Snipers generally more useful
- Slow Attack Speed
"Relax, I set a whole bunch of traps right where the enemy's gonna be running. What? They didn't step in any of them? No way!"
Though she is a bit of a rebellious troublemaker, Catapult has never neglected her duties. Mind you, she does have a tendency to blow stuff up when she’s upset…. Accidental property damage aside, Catapult is a 3★ Operator with the typical AoE Sniper attributes of extended attack range, high Attack, slow Attack Speed, and high Deployment cost.
Lightweight, Catapult’s Talent, reduces her DP cost by 1. Since AoE Snipers are generally expensive to deploy, this may make her worth considering even over higher-rarity options for maps with tight DP restrictions. Catapult’s one and only Skill, Blast Range Up 𝛂, increases the Area of Effect of her attacks -- useful on maps where enemy groups are spaced such that the increased splash range is significant (like Annihilation: Lungmen Outskirts).
Catapult’s major shortcomings stem from her low rarity. Lower base stats and the lack of an E2 upgrade mean she won’t have a place on your late-game roster. For early game, however, you may find that her cheap investment costs and knack for blowing stuff up is exactly what you need to help you progress.

Elite Promotion Discussion
Note: Catapult does not gain a Talent improvement upon reaching max Level E1, unlike most other 3 Star Operators.
Base Skill Analysis
Catapult gains her second RIIC Base Skill upon reaching Elite 1.
Is it worth it? Yes. This is the highest rate possible for this effect, and is matched only by Meteorite and Blue Poison after they are Promoted to E2. 75% is a rate more commonly attained by Operators, including the Friend Store Operator Gavial.If the increased rate is the difference maker in a proc, it will quickly make up the costs of Catapult’s Promotion.

The problem child of A6, she loves to stick her nose where it doesn't belong and stir the pot.
Catapult is a repeat offender who always gets into trouble and irritates Orchid in particular..
Archive File 2Increase Trust to 100.
The mayor didn't step down, no one suspended the construction of the dam, and the vaults she blew up only accounted for a fraction of the city's revenue.
Just a matter of time before the consequences finally kick in.

Because she knows Orchid means well, she makes trouble for her.
Archive File 4Increase Trust to 200.
But she is a good girl, otherwise she wouldn't have blown up the vaults. Although she wasn't happy with it, she did the best she could. In addition, since her time at Rhodes Island, she has never neglected her duty.
If one day Rhodes Island disappoints her, she just might blow something up and leave. Hopefully, that day never comes.
|Appointed as Assistant||We got a lot to do today, Doctor. So how about we play some games first? Isn't getting nice and relaxed the best way to prepare for a hard day of work?|
|Talk 1||Aw, I feel so lazy today for some reason! Maybe because Midnight isn't around? I love watching him chat up girls with that flashy smile of his. It's especially fun when the girls turn him down! Totally makes my day.|
|Talk 2||Doctor, you know who's the most reliable in our group? Oh, you can't guess? It's Spot! He might be quiet, but he's very reliable. So, since there's so much work to do but only two of us... why don't we get him to come and help?|
|Talk 3||Aw... Ms. Orchid yelled at me again today. She's such a nag! Must be work getting into her head and stressing her out. She should learn from me—I have the perfect balance between working hard and playing hard!|
|Talk after Promotion 1||Hey, where's Dobermann? She's out on business today? Yay, finally! I can slack off all day now, wonderful! I'm gonna go get some snacks first. Doctor, you want some chips or popcorn? I'll grab a bag for you!|
|Talk after Trust Increase 1||Uh, Popukar, sweetie, please listen to me, I'll do anything you say, okay? J-just put down the chainsaw! Oh no, she's out of control! This is the worst! Doctor, run! Run! We gotta jump out the window! Yeah, the window! Follow me!|
|Talk after Trust Increase 2||The town we were in back then... the mayor was a tyrant, a fat cat with no heart, no sympathy. Drove the townspeople nuts. I hated him too, so I blasted open his vault and handed out all the money I found to the townies. Now that was a good time!|
|Talk after Trust Increase 3||I don't care what anybody thinks of me—it's more important I just enjoy every day doing what I like. My life belongs to me, so I alone decide what I do. Isn't that right?|
|Idle||Doctor... oh, you're asleep? Well, can't interrupt the Doctor's beauty nap, so I guess I'll go out and have some fun.|
|Onboard||Operation Reserve Team A6 member Catapult, reporting in! Hey, I can tell you're hella different from that stuffy old bit—I mean, that esteemed, honorable instructor Ms. Dobermann. Right? Like it's obvious!|
|Watching Battle Record||...Ahhh, that was a nice nap.|
|Promotion 1||Hehe, I finally finished basic training. Wait, what? "After promotion, Dobermann will oversee further training..." No way!|
|Added to Squad||It's not time to head out yet, right? Let me hang out for a bit longer...|
|Appointed as Squad Leader||I'm the captain? I've been waiting forever to hear those words!|
|Depart||Huh? Where did I leave my ammunition belt?|
|Begin Operation||Ugh, I hate fighting. But what else can I do?|
|Selecting Operator 1||What's up?|
|Selecting Operator 2||Whatever you say~|
|Deployment 1||Safe landing!|
|Deployment 2||Business time!|
|In Battle 1||One shot, one kill!|
|In Battle 2||Takeoff!|
|4-star Result||What an awesome formation, great tactics, it all went down perfect!|
|3-star Result||I love commanders that lead us to victory—commanders like you!|
|Sub 3-star Result||Relax, I set a whole bunch of traps right where the enemy's gonna be running. What? They didn't step in any of them? No way!|
|Operation Failure||Damn... we got no choice. Bug out!|
|Assigned to Facility||Hey, can take a peek and tell me if Dobermann's in there?|
|Tap||You can't catch me! ...Oh, you can.|
|Trust Tap||Doctor, you're an awesome leader!|
|Greeting||Doctor! I'm right here!|
