T-Doll Analysis

Equipment

Overview

Whether it be through career quests or her login event, M1918 (otherwise simply called BAR) will likely be one of the first MGs any commander receives. She is a 4★ MG whose base form isn’t anything special but nothing terrible either.

Statistically, her FP and Accuracy are high. She’ll hit hard and fairly reliably without the need for too much external accuracy support. The main downside is her poor clip size, which is helped somewhat by her Special Equipment but she still remains below other popular MGs.

Her skill, Damage Focus MG, is a powerful FP boost, giving her a large DPS increase in the second volley. With the long initial cooldown and no passive though, her damage output in the first volley is lackluster compared to the likes of the “Big 4”. Her tiles are passable, giving a good armor boost but poor coverage.

As one can see, the base version of BAR possesses several upsides and several downsides. She’s a good pick for when you need MGs and have nothing else available, but will typically fade from use once a commander acquires stronger MGs

Equipment

Overview

M1918’s Digimind Upgrade sets out to improve the primary issue that her original form had: her lackluster first volley damage. She still has her faults, but M1918 Mod is nevertheless a solid MG.

Her base form already possessed great offensive stats, but now they’re even better than before thanks to a considerable FP and Accuracy boost. Her clip size still sadly remains the same, but her new Skill 2, Battlefield Magic, helps to make this much less of an issue. With her initial shots in each volley having a substantial damage boost, her damage per volley is much more comparable to the likes of other top MGs such as MG5. Her second volley in particular will be immensely strong since both Damage Focus MG and Battlefield Magic will be active.

M1918 Mod’s biggest downside is simply the investment needed for her to reach her peak. She will ideally want to be Mod3 for the extra stats from being oathed, on top of needing her Skill 2 maxed and wanting the Titan Fire-Control Clip (Her Mod Special Equipment can be ignored). Especially given that M1918 is a 4★ at base, the cost of doing all of this will be very substantial. Her other remaining issue is her tile layout is unchanged from her base form.

All in all, M1918 Mod is a strong MG that can now properly compete with the likes of other top MGs. Despite this, commanders will need to consider if the DPS she offers is worth the investment, especially when other MGs can be comparatively strong with much less investment

Strengths

High Offensive Stats

M1918 comes with 96 FP and 31 Accuracy, both being on the higher end for MGs. Her high damage fits well with her damage boosting skill while her accuracy allows her to favor other types of bonuses over accuracy.

Armor Tile

M1918’s tile gives a 10% armor boost. While this is on the lower end for armor boosts, it’s nevertheless a beneficial bonus for any SG to receive

Weaknesses

Low Clip Size

M1918 possesses a pitifully low clip size of 8. At the time of writing, this is the lowest possible clip size for an MG. This serves as a large detriment to her potential DPS, especially compared to other top MGs which possess clip sizes of 10 or 11. Her Special Equipment helps with this issue somewhat.

2nd Volley Skill

While Damage Focus MG is a great boost for the second volley, the lack of any boost for the first volley results in M1918’s damage output falling behind other major MG competitors within that first voley. As such, M1918 is better suited for longer fights where she will reach her second volley.

Poor Tile Coverage

M1918 will only boost the SG on the tile of the front row directly in front of her. In a standard MGSG with one SG, this relegates her to Position 4 if the commander wants her to boost the SG, which in turn means that slot can’t be used for a HG buffer if desired

Strengths

Battlefield Magic

M1918 Mod’s new Skill 2 goes a long way in improving her overall DPS. Battlefield Magic sets her reload time to a fixed 5 seconds, and also boosts the damage of her first three shots in each volley by 40%. The most substantial part of this is the extra damage on the first three slots which results in an overall large DPS boost for all of M1918’s volleys. The fixed reload time is a nice bonus as well, helping her to get into subsequent volleys quicker.

Stronger Offensive Stats

M1918 Mod enjoys a substantial 5 FP and 3 Accuracy from her upgrade, bringing her up to 101 FP and 34 Accuracy. Her offensive stats were already high in her base form, so now they’re even higher and do contribute greatly to her DPS.

Weaknesses

Very High Cost

In order to reach her best potential, M1918 is arguably one of the most expensive mods (besides the 5★ Mods). She wants to ideally be brought all the way up to Mod3 so she can enjoy the extra stats from being oathed. On top of this, she wants not her Mod Speq but her other Speq: the Titan Fire-Control Chip. So she needs the typical resources that a 4★ needs to be upgraded, an oath ring for the extra stats from affection, her other Speq which needs to be farmed, and then that Speq needs to be fully upgraded. All in all, this will total to a large number of memory fragments, cores, data, and other resources.

Considering that other strong MGs have comparable performance to M1918 Mod whilst costing much less to reach their peak, it can be difficult to justify this upgrade.

Poor Tile Layout Remains

Her upgrade sadly does not fix M1918’s poor tiles. She still only buffs one SG that’s directly in front of her, again forcing her into Position 4 which in turn means that position can’t be used for a HG buffer if desired.

Team Options

There is a good selection of Position 5 HGs for a typical SGMG, including but not limited to Mk23, K5, and Contender. All of these provide strong bonuses, but Contender in particular deserves special mention for her crit rate buff, which can improve M1918 considerably when she’s equipped with a VFL.

M1918 is sadly incompatible with KSG; She cannot buff her armor while also receiving buffs from her in return. Nevertheless, S.A.T.8 and Saiga-12 are both strong SGs who can buff M1918 while receiving her buff themselves. Given Saiga-12’s preference towards offense, S.A.T.8 would appreciate M1918’s buffs more.

Team Options

The dolls that M1918 likes to be paired with have not changed between her base form and her Digimind Upgrade. She still appreciates a strong position 5 HG buffer such as Mk23, K5, or Contender while still remaining best paired with an SG such as S.A.T.8 or Saiga-12 that can buff her while also receiving M1918’s armor buff.
