Usage

Activate the ability


ShatterShield.png Shatter Shield

Shatter Shield
Envelops Mesa in a barrier of energy, reflecting back incoming bullet damage.
Cost: 75
Warframe: Mesa

,

which reflects attacks from guns back at enemies and gives a 95% damage reduction. Then activate shooting gallery which causes enemies in range weapons to jam, and the effect carries over to allies one at a time. Once enemies are present and mesa has substantial energy, activate ability peacemaker which summons mesa's exalted pistols "regulators". Face enemies and hold down trigger... Enemies un range will be damaged. As damage is inflicted upon enemies, mesa's field of view will decrease and mesa can walk towards or away from enemies as well as roll if faster movement is required. The regulators use energy per second, so activate, inactivate, and reactivate as needed.

can increase crit chance when mesa is damaged and

Arcane Velocity
60% chance for +80% Fire Rate to Pistols for 6s
Criteria: On Critical Hit



can increase fire rate when regulators crit.

Variation

Player can replace augment for some other exilus mod, but mesa wont be able to walk.

Counters

Nullifers can counter this build, and the regulators will not target the bubble... So use a weapon. Melee enemies can bypass the damage reduction of shatter shield, take them out quickly. Leech eximus and magnetic anomolies can drain energy which powers all of mesa's moves.

Would switch Hollow Point with Magnum Force since it increases DPS.
