OVERVIEW

Kafka is a Thunder Sniper character.

Kafka is a bit of an underrated character due to her just being a 4 star. Much like Tessa, she get’s overlooked. If you are unable to get 5 star/6 star thunder snipers, Kafka will be able to fulfil this role easily.

Her active skill is really good (only 2 turns cooldown! with pre-emptive at breakthrough 4). You get 2 shots and you can choose it in any direction. She will be able to fire 2 shots either in the same line or 2 different directions.

The good thing is that it is good against big bosses who occupy more than 3 tiles, causing it to hit 2/3 times. Alternatively, it also acts as an AoE that can damage enemies from opposite sides. In some stages, using it to break obstacles is vital to passing some key missions.

Her chain combo targets 2/3 enemies near her, which is pretty much the entire map. Much like Vice, she is suitable to be a captain. Her chain combo does have some AoE damage surrounding the targets.

Her equipment enhances her active skill damage. It scales using addition stacks with more yellow tiles she steps on, increasing her active skill damage when used. It resets upon usage. Sometimes, it is good to save it against the boss, collect enough stacks and unleash it for maximum damage. Since her active skill becomes pre-emptive, you can also use it right away and start stacking charges for the next attack.

She is also easy to ascend as you do not need the level 3 ascension materials, making her a good early game carry until you gather enough resources to summon the higher rarity 6 snipers.

File #1

I already told you not to bother me while I'm sleeping! What is it? Do you want me to shoot you?! What? Franz got lost, and you brought it back? Aha, no wonder I couldn't find him... I'll forgive you then. Is there anything else? If not, leave now! What? You want me to take the night shift tonight? Whether it's that giant lizard or this big guy, why is there no one reliable here?! Okay, okay! I get it! I already have a layer of dark circles under my eyes anyway... Can you leave now? You know I hate being woken up. If you didn't know that before—well, now you know!

File #2

Are you curious about my gun? There's a story behind it. My father dug it out from under a certain ruin back then when he was chasing after those guys... Hmm, this was one amazing fella alright, though I don't really understand how it works exactly. All you need to know is that I can send all the Eclipsites to heaven with it! Hahaha! I should be the only person who can use it. Its name? I won't tell you since you won't remember it anyway! Yes, it is called an electromagnetic gun, but it has nothing to do with that girl who uses coins! Having said that, although we're called the Revolver Gang, my gun has nothing to do with revolvers... Is Franz useful in battle? Useful or not, I'm happy as long as he doesn't run over and rub himself against me when I'm fighting...

File #3

I wouldn't have joined any organization if it wasn't for that lizard who just didn't know when to call it quits! I don't want to join any organization! But I can't help it because I have no home to return to, and I actually think that giant lizard is quite cute... Hey, I didn't say anything! Don't ask me about it! Actually, part of the reason I stayed was that the boss was crying and begging me to stay. He said no one could assume shadow duty because everyone on this giant lizard is too frivolous, so I had to do it... I finally agreed only because she cried so hideously... What? You don't believe she cried? She did if I said she did. What's with the questioning? Want me to shoot you?!

File #4

The "chairman of animal protection"? Where did you hear that from? It must be the guys on that giant lizard! Damn! They must be tired of living! What are you looking at me for? Although I always give snacks to Kuma and Pengy, it's because I have too many snacks that I can't finish! Losing weight is also a form of combat! ...You saw me playing with a cat yesterday? Forget everything you saw immediately unless you want me to kill you now! Do it! Now!
