Build offers great damage and high mobility in form of Superspeed you get from Crystal Configuration: Zephyr by spamming Holo Leap when moving around.

Build fundamentals

Try to stay between 100-150 heat, in order to maintain Might stacks allowing for higher damage output and more Regeneration when leaving holo forge.

Your main sources of damage are Engage Photon Forge and Grenade Kit, primarily Grenade Barrage and Shrapnel Grenade, the latter is generally used in combination with Magnetic Shield Magnetic Inversion into Radiant Arc and Shrapnel Grenade.

The rest of the skills in Grenade Kit should be used as such:

  • Grenade is a filler, used to continue pressuring your opponents while keeping distance
  • Flash Grenade used as more of an entrance and exit skill, you would use it as you enter grenade kit as well as when you exit the kit for melee range
  • Freeze Grenade used as a filler to slow down the enemy when chasing
  • Poison Grenade used as a filler when the enemy is blocking, also applies Poisoned pressure

Your panic button will be Elixir S, use it when close to death, about to be CC chained, or in an outnumbered situation. It can also be used to secure a stomp or to get a safer revive on an ally. Its toolbelt skill, Toss Elixir S, is used either as an opener to surprise the enemy with a quick burst or to get a sneaky revive. It can also be used as an escape tool.

Your main source of sustain (and an increase in damage) is Explosive Entrance due to Big Boomer.

[skill 6183] can be used when chasing down enemies due to high range and stun duration, to secure kills or interrupt enemy revive attempts.
