- Operator Feature Banners do not add Operators to the Distinction shop
Should You Pull?
Yes, but it’s more of a luxury than a must-have. The new Operators on this banner are quite strong, but they aren’t gamechangers.
That being said, it may not be a bad idea to do Headhunt x1 until you pull a 5★ or higher Operator off this banner, since one is guaranteed in the first 10 rolls.
+ Usual archetype strengths: Low DP cost, fast ASPD
+ Gets critical hits from Talent 1
+ Both Talents give him extra survivability (an enemy ATK debuff from Talent 1, bonus DEF and Physical Dodge from Talent 2)
+ All three of his Skills can hit multiple enemies, helping to keep large numbers of weak enemies under control
+ In addition to offensive buffs, S2 reduces his DEF in exchange for HP regen; since Mountain has low DEF but high HP, this is a good trade for him
+ S3 has surprisingly high burst damage and Pushes enemies away—he can Push enemies into pits or just Push them away to interrupt enemy attacks
= Can switch between Block-1 (default) and Block-2 (using S2), with the advantages and disadvantages of each
- Usual archetype weaknesses: has trouble damaging high-DEF enemies and can be too squishy to duel high-DPS enemies
+ Usual archetype strengths: Good for stalling or assassinating key enemy targets (although she satisfies both roles in unconventional ways)
+ The first Fast-Redeploy Specialist to deal Arts damage with her Skills
= Her Talent makes her very safe from damage when she is first deployed, but also makes it harder to use her as an emergency blocker
= Sleep can be a double-edged sword
= The strange range on S2 can be either very useful or extremely annoying
- Usual archetype weaknesses: Low base stats compared to many other Operators
+ Strong ST Medic with decent stats for her role
+ Buffs the ASPD of other Medics with her Talent, allowing them to heal more quickly
+ The Medical Drone from her S2 is incredibly versatile, in large part because it can be deployed on any empty space:
- It can heal allies anywhere on the map
- It can heal multiple allies simultaneously (and Silence will still be healing those within her range as well)
- If deployed within Silence’s healing range, both she and the Drone can heal the same ally/ allies, serving as a kind of burst healing
- Lacks forms of non-healing utility (i.e., Shining’s shields or Warfarin’s attack buff)
+ Usual archetype strengths: high base ATK, true AoE attacks, increased damage at a specific range
+ Talent generates extra SP for a short time after she is deployed
+ S1 is manually activated and holds multiple charges, giving the player a lot of control over when they want burst damage and how much they need
+ S2 is an automatic-trigger damage buff that ramps up over time, making it very powerful in long maps
- Usual archetype weaknesses: Slow ASPD, short attack range, high DP cost
- S2 reduces her attack range while active (and she didn’t have much to spare in the first place)
Mountain lived the life of a pampered housecat, being the son of a construction company’s wealthy CEO… until his family was framed by jealous rivals and he was sent to Mansfield Prison. On the run and plotting his revenge, Mountain is sharpening his claws in the employ of Rhodes Island. Well—to be more accurate, he’s sharpening his Skills, which have him punching enemies in the face two and three at a time. Coupling a Brawler’s lightning speed and modest DP cost with unprecedented DPS for the archetype, Mountain is certain that his enemies are gonna hear him roar.
Gangster or gardener? Kafka uses both identities as a smokescreen to keep people at bay, too used to the hardships of a life on the street to trust others easily. It would seem she’s warming up to Rhodes Island, though. Unless she just enjoys making Sleeping targets explode and dropping giant phantom Arts scissors out of the sky onto people’s heads. Who can say for sure?
Silence is arguably the gold standard for 5-star ST Medics in Arknights, being perhaps the most flexible pure healer released to date. Her highly versatile Medical Drone can be used for burst healing, AoE healing, long-range healing, or pretty much any other kind of healing you could possibly need, all in one fell swoop. (Get it? Swoop? Because she’s an owl?)
Pinecone may come off as ditzy and helpless at first glance, but beneath her laidback exterior is a tremendously efficient problem-solver. Did your air conditioner break? Pinecone can fix that. Did your doorbell jam? Pinecone can fix that. Do you have a bunch of enemies that need to have a high-powered nailgun repeatedly applied to their faces? Pinecone can fix that too.
