M2 is a MTR whose Skill 1 has a lower multiplier than 2B14 and PP-93. Combine this with the fact that her other skills do not directly increase her damage output and she just ends up being a bit weaker as a general MTR.
If you are reading older guides or info on M2, you might see mentions that her Skill 1 does not activate at the start of combat. This is incorrect info and should be disregarded. Just like with 2B14 and PP-93 her Skill 1 activates at the start of combat.

Launch a mortar to deal 1x Lethality and Pierce to enemies within a radius of 2.
Level 10 Effect Fires an additional shell after every 2 attacks at the furthest enemy unit, dealing an extra 1.2x Lethality to enemies in a radius of 2.
Level 10 Effect After every shot, for each enemy within M2’s attack AoE, apply a 10% Accuracy and Evasion buff for 5s to a random allied unit. Max 3 stacks per unit.
Level 10 Effect After every shot, buff M2’s own Precision by 10% for 8s. Max 3 stacks.
M2's Skill 1 targets the furthest target, as opposed to 2B14's and PP-93's random targeting on their Skill 1. When her Reload is maxed should hit about every ~6 seconds, making her a more frequent but weaker hitting version of the MTR first strike.
Her Skill 2 buffs random allies' Evasion and Accuracy, which can occasionally have uses due to Dolls' skills but is otherwise not worth thinking about much.
Her Skill 3 simply buffs her own Precision, which is neat but not super impactful either.
The M2 mortar is an American infantry mortar that has been used since the mid-20th century. While it has been largely superceded by other modern mortar units in the United States, the M2 remains in service in many armies across the world.
- With the right chips, M2 can actually max out her stats and same color bonus even with a square missing in her circuit board.
- Thanks to the extra margin, optimal M2 circuit configurations can make use of otherwise suboptimal chip shapes like the size 4 pieces that have decent stat distributions.
