PROS & CONS
Good budget captain
Versatile active skill (can kill bosses or take on multiple enemies) + break obstacles
Active skill can be confusing to use at first
Pre-emptive skill is unlocked at breakthrough 4
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.
