Operator Overview

“Chief... Theytheythey're barbecuinginthedormagain. Canyouplease stopthemforme! Aaaah! Someoneswapped myfireextinguisher withIfrit'sflamethrower! Areyouokay, Chief?”

Shawisoneofthemore wellknownandwellrecognizedOperatorsinArknights duetoherdistinctivewayofspeaking—

Okay, okay, we won’t do the entire overview in Shaw-speak. You don’t have to hit that Back button, we promise.

As we were saying, Shaw is one of the more well-known and well-recognized Operators in Arknights due to her distinctive way of speaking and her adorable firefighter’s uniform. Despite the best efforts of pyromaniacs like Skyfire and Ifrit, Shaw uses her firefighting equipment to stop Rhodes Island from burning to the ground. She also brings her equipment to the battlefield, using her trusty firehose to Shift enemies about as a 4* Push Specialist Operator.

Pushing enemies has multiple benefits. It gets enemies away from your units, forcing them to walk back up before they can start attacking again. It can force enemies to choose a new route towards your base panel, allowing you to “funnel” enemies where you want them to go. If there’s a pit or some other lethal obstacle, it can even allow you to one-shot enemies! Shaw has two flavors of pushing power: her Skill 1, Steam Pump, is a weaker Push that charges quickly and triggers automatically, allowing her to push smaller enemies quickly. Meanwhile, High-Pressure Water Cannon charges for a longer period of time to produce a more powerful push, and it pushes ALL enemies within a longer range than Shaw’s normal attack range. Though it takes longer to recharge, it can send multiple heavier enemies flying when activated.

Shift Operators are very niche units, since not every battlefield has layouts or obstacles that make their movement Skills really worthwhile. However, when you need a Shift Operator (i.e., Annihilation 1 or 2) you really need one, and rap god Shaw is perfect for the job.

Base Skill Analysis

Shaw gains her second RIIC Skill at Elite 1.

Is it worth it?  Probably. Second highest Power Plant buff, with only Greyy and Liskarm E2 having better.  She also gains some Resistance, which can be situationally useful in combat.  Some players swear by keeping her at E0 for the lower Deploy Cost, however, so the tradeoff is up to you.

Operator Shaw tends to get nervous easily. Introverted and slow to speak, she has a tendency to keep running her mouth once she gets going. When engaged in conversation, Shaw spends most of her time struggling to choose the right words, which wears her out quickly. She is a highly dedicated worker, committed to getting the job done, especially in scenarios involving fire or arson.

Increase Trust to 100.
The petite Shaw managed to win the trust of her peers with her diligence and professionalism in the field of firefighting. The huge fire rescue operation last winter more than proved Shaw's competence: When the irresponsible use of a space heater eventually set a whole building ablaze, Shaw made numerous incursions inside to rescue trapped victims, orchestrating a successful operation with zero casualties. That earned her a personal invite from Wei Yenwu, Chief Executive of Lungmen, as well as headlines in all the newspapers.
With Wei's and the L.G.D's support, Shaw was accepted into Rhodes Island for her expertise in fire safety and prevention. It was an obvious boon to the island, since most Operators have little to no knowledge of or training in firefighting. Shaw handily filled the gap.
When Shaw had the chance to inspect the intricate passageways and firefighting equipment on the island, and after meeting certain Operators who wield fire Arts at will, she realized she faced a daunting task.

Increase Trust to 150.
To accommodate Shaw's daily tasks, the installation team at Rhodes Island provided her with convenient, portable firefighting devices and a thermometer, although the latter quickly overloaded and broke down. Operators Skyfire and Ifrit both denied responsibility for the demise of this extremely sensitive tool.
To combat this, Shaw decided to implement an effective, if rather old-fashioned technique: Make a list of theOperatorsmost likely to start a fire, and initiate a firefighting program for the entire island. The first seminar commenced with the notable absence of Dr. Kal'tsit, where Shaw presented materials and slides (including various scenes of major fires and warning signs). The presentation was short, thanks to Shaw's famously fast rate of speech, and the raucous applause made it clear the audience had no clue what she had intended to communicate to them. (Some confessed to hearing a voice but being unable to locate the speaker).
This disappointing outcome only kept Shaw down for about half a day, when she realized that there are many setbacks in life, depression is the death of passion.

Increase Trust to 200.
Shaw reports her first memory of fire came from the tragic loss of a beloved fruit vendor to arson. That was when she realized a person can create a Catastrophe from will alone, but will alone won't resolve it. The idea of becoming a firefighting expert took root in her mind, as she hoped to save all the good things in life from the threat of fire. It also strengthened her resolve as a Rhodes Island Operator. When faced with a malefactor out to cause a Catastrophe, she is always willing to stand against it. To Shaw, safeguarding the people from the suffering of an unexpected crisis is as precious and worth protecting as the feeling she gets from buying a big, round apple.
