Shared Tropes

  • Artistic License – Military: The RF category is created with some ambiguity. While more or less intended to be a category for sniper rifles, the deliberately open category name allows it to encompass all sniper rifles, semi-automatic rifles, battle rifles, anti-materiel rifles, and carbines (basically everything not assault rifles), giving them all sniper rifle-like gameplay qualities. Whether or not wildcards the like M1 Carbine or Hezi SM-1 and the unrifled anti-materiel weapon Steyr IWS 2000 actually fit into the "rifle" category is somewhat iffy in reality.

  • Cold Sniper: Some of the girls are basically this or-
  • Friendly Sniper: Some of them can be this.
  • Glass Cannon: They deliver powerful shots with high critical chance giving their class the highest sustained DPS in game. However, they typically have very low health and evasion, thus are best kept in the back lines, picking off enemies with precision fire.
  • Mighty Glacier: RFs are usually very slow as well, due to the nature of their class which doesn't need to reposition very often. They become even slower while wearing cloaks.

Tula/Izhmash SVT-38
Artist: sola7764
Voiced by: Kaori Ide

  • Rare Guns: Yes and no. While the real SVT-38 was manufactured in vastly higher quantities compared to the other Rare Guns featured in the game, it is considered rare by Soviet Russian standards. Production totals of both the SVT-38 and the revised SVT-40 add up to around 1,6 million units, compared to the 15 million plus Simonov SKSs that replaced them. Ultimately, the SVT-38/40 was shelved due to it being Awesome, but Impractical, and therefore never very successful, making it quite hard to find these days outside of reproductions.
  • The Stoic: She displays a no-nonsense attitude and is very dedicated to her duty as a soldier.

Walther G43
Artist: 河马
Voiced by: Nozomi Amane

  • Gratuitous German: Greets you with a hearty "Guten tag!" and proceeds to recite her full name (Walther gewehr dreiundvierzehn) in her acquisition line.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A, surprisingly.

Artist: Bison仓鼠
Voiced by: Mami Misaki

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Despite her meek and shy personality, her newfound confidence after undergoing her Digi-mind upgrade lets her stand up to FNC's bullying of her.
  • Extreme Doormat: She is this to her roommate FNC prior to her Digi-mind upgrade, who frequently bullies her or uses her as a scapegoat for when she's reprimanded by the Commander. Reaches a logical conclusion when FN-49 receives critical damage for providing covering fire to FNC during a skirmish. Though she holds no ill will towards her roommate afterwards, she does hit FNC's hand with the comb that she gave her, as a reminder that even though she's nice, she will bite back when pushed too far.
  • Prone to Tears: Constantly sounds like she's in the verge of tears. She even stutters in her acquisition line.

  • Butt-Monkey: See Training Dummy below.
  • Dub Name Change: She was originally named "Simonova" in the English translations before being renamed as "SKS"
  • Hot-Blooded: She's boisterous and mischievous, just like her friend and squadmate AK-47.
  • Training Dummy: She occasionally appears in the Skill Training room as a living target. Although this was originally a bug, the developers decided to keep this in as a rare Easter Egg.
    • In the 4-koma drawn by MADCORE, she is often used as dummy for the more..."unhinged", so to speak, members of G&K, most commonly Vector and her Incendiary Grenades.

  • Nice Girl: Friendly and easygoing.
  • Mellow Fellow: Her profile shows that she is a patient and easygoing T-Doll who likes to take her time double-checking her work.
  • Signature Sound Effect: The rifle's famous "ping" sound can be heard when Garand does her special.

Artist: Rain Lan
Voiced by: Saori Onishi

  • Disc-One Nuke: Her high damage output and rate of fire, coupled with a strong damage self-buff, and viability in higher levels of play, makes her one of the best RF-class dolls in the game. She's also a fairly common RF in T-Doll Production and players can get her for free upon reaching Commander Level 40.
  • Joshikousei: Even though she's technically American, her clothing and mannerisms resemble this trope.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Her MOD 3 story reveals that she likes fighting in the vanguard a little bit too much. The end result is that she was critically damaged after every engagement she was involved in.
  • Mega Twintails: Sports an unusually long and fanciful pair.
  • More Dakka: Has the highest rate of fire among all RFs, likely alluding to her weapon's full-auto capability.
  • Sole Survivor: She was once a part of a defective model of dolls. This batch was put through harsh trials over and over again, until only one remained.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A, just falling shy of Grade S by having the hairstyle but not the personality.

Click to see "Piercing the Heart" costume. 
Artist: 幻象黑兔
Voiced by: Mamiko Hanada

  • Crazy-Prepared: Formulates her attacks around extremely precise calculations and consideration of the environment around her. This is apparently amplified in her MOD3 upgrade.
  • Cringe Comedy: In her third secretary line, the Commander walks in on her reciting dramatic quotes much to her surprise.
    SV-98: "'I'll shoot you through the heart! Pew-!' ...ah?! Commander, you heard?"
  • Meido: Her "Waitress" costume gives her this look.
  • Technician vs. Performer: The Technician to SVD's Performer. SV prefers to examine every possible firing position and angle before an encounter. The end result is that while she can deliver solid and consistent performance, she quickly crumples when faced with a situation she didn't prepare for beforehand.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Her outfit resembles a Russian military dress uniform. The Russian flag can also be seen on the left sleeve of her shirt.

Hanyang Type 88
Click to see appearance post-Digi-mind upgrade. 
Click to see "Lotus of the East Lake" costume. 
Artist: 团子
Voiced by: Yuuka Aisaka

  • Affectionate Nickname: Ai-chan, a reference to the ComiAi, a real-life anime festival held in Wuhan. Hanyang Type 88's design was lifted from one of the mascots. In-universe, it was given by the researcher who worked with her during the Assault Artillery program.
  • Bayonet Ya: Her default skin's Live2D version fits her rifle with a bayonet. Upon reaching MOD 2, she'll use the bayonet against any enemies within spitting distance of her while her skill is active. Bayonet attacks can't miss, but can't crit or penetrate armor, either. Completing her Digi-mind upgrade by reaching MOD 3 will replace the conventional bayonet with one that generates a beam edge.
  • BFS: She gains a dadao with her Digi-mind upgrade, which she can swing for a massive Sword Beam should an enemy gets close.
  • Break Out the Museum Piece: The Type 88 rifle's origin traces back to the late 19th century, which is far older than many of her fellow T-Dolls in the game.
  • Cute Mute: Back when she was a testing doll, she was missing vocal modules.
  • Jet Pack: The thrusters built into her MOD 3 armor multiplies her movement speed by 500%, far exceeding the fastest units in the game.
  • Meido: Adopts this character design and treats the Commander as her master.
  • The Musketeer: Thanks to the melee weapons the came with her Mod 3, Type 88 is more than capable of dealing damage in close-quarters, while still retaining the long-range sharpshooting RFs are known for.
  • Older Than They Look: If her Mod 3 stories are any indication, as she has records that date back to 2023.
  • One-Hit Polykill: In her MOD 3 form. If her first skill is active, all of her attacks during its duration will punch through multiple targets, complete with changing her projectile visuals into laser beams.
  • Temporary Online Content: Formerly. She was initially available only through promotional codes, but has since been added to production pools of all versions.
  • You Are Number 6: She was originally known as 59898, as she was meant as nothing more than a disposable crash test dummy for the Assault Artillery project.

  • Friendly Sniper: She specifically advertises herself as a sniper with a cheerful personality.
  • Underground Monkey: The M21 is practically an M14 locked to semi-automatic fire and fitted with a scope and bipod. Appropriately, stats-wise M21 only noticeably differs from M14 by her skill.

ArmaLite Super SASS
Click to see "Wolfwalker" costume. 
Artist: 受菟
Voiced by: Rika Tachibana

  • Beleaguered Assistant: Is this to Commander Sekigun in the manga, which didn't help that he casually sent her unit on a recovery mission while blowing off the site's security detail.
  • Friendly Sniper: An especially friendly and upbeat T-doll, even when she needs to withdraw from combat.
  • Hidden Badass: Though she believes herself to be just an ordinary T-doll, she is apparently quite experienced with many things. She singlehandedly eliminated an entire unit of Sangvis T-Dolls and successfully rescued M9 during the conclusion of the Chapter 2 night battles.
  • Joshikousei; Her outfit makes her look like one.
  • Temporary Online Content: She is only available either as a random drop from Operation: Arctic Warfare, or as a login reward.

M1A1 Carbine
Artist: 哈路卡
Voiced by: Suzuko Mimori

  • Big Sister Worship: She adores and greatly respects M1 Garand, with many of her lines seeking the latter's attention.
    • In reality, the M1A1 and the M1 Garand are completely unrelated weapons, despite sharing similar naming and appearances. They were both developed as the first of their series of carbines and rifles respectively under the U.S. Army's current naming system, hence they share the "M1" designation in their names.
  • Fragile Speedster: She has the highest Evasion out of any RF, but also the lowest damage and relative HP.
  • More Dakka: Her active ability boosts her already good fire rate for up to 15 seconds.
  • So Okay, It's Average: She sits in a rather awkward position in the current meta, due to her stats being thoroughly mediocre across the board. High enough to be tempting, but too low to be of actual worth.

  • BFG: The gun was supposedly the largest ever produced by TsKIB SOO, weighing 14kg and measuring roughly 1070mm long.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: She has them, though not very visible unless her CG is zoomed in.
  • Can't Hold Her Liquor: Implied, since Kalina specifically forbids her from serving (and being served) alcohol, in part due to her being considered "underaged", as far as T-Dolls go.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: OTs-44 has a tendency to fall in love with really strange and seemingly random things, at least in the VA-11 HALL-A event, such as a pair of wireless headphones, a satellite, a movie trailer, and a telephone pole of all things. Of note, she fell in love with the movie trailer after watching it and couldn't get it out of her head. And her appearance during the crossover ends with her falling in love with hearing Dorothy say her own name.
  • Rare Guns: The OTs-44 was produced mostly in its prototype stages and never entered mass production.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: See Cloudcuckoolander above.

Liao Type 13note
Click to see "White Camellia" costume. 
Artist: 八才
Voiced by: Yuka Saitou

  • Expy: Her character design is identical to that of China's high speed rail network mascot, Chinese Railway Harmony CRH380A Liáng Língwēi, known for her appearance in the doujin series CHINA RAILWAY GIRL. Their character arts were done by the same artist.
  • Rare Guns: For the most part. The Liao Type 13 was indigenous to a small region of Manchurian China under the control of Zhang Zuolin, a local warlord, who issued a production run of approximately 140,000 rifles, before the Japanese occupation of 1931 put an end to its 7-year service life. Authentic copies are now quite rare to come across even in China, since many were either lost or destroyed during the small wars that took place between 1924 and 1931, and following the Japanese invasion.
  • Temporary Online Content: She is only obtainable as a monthly reward or from random drops throughout Operation: Deep Dive.
  • Underground Monkey: The Liao Type 13 is a slightly-modified Manchurian derivative of the German Mauser Gewehr 98, only using a different caliber and minor changes to the feeding and firing systems, making it a very close cousin of the Kar98k.

Karabinek wz.29
Artist: zui
Voiced by: Kotomi Aihara

  • Apologetic Attacker: Apologizes when she inevitably is forced into the fight.
  • Good Is Not Soft: While she absolutely hates war, she will fight when ordered to and will justify it as a means bringing about peace and preventing suffering.
    "I'm sorry, but winning is the only way to save others from suffering."
  • Shrinking Violet: Her profile states that she is quiet and indifferent, often spending her time with her head low, lost in thought.
  • Stargazing Scene: Watching the starry sky at night is her getaway, as it is "a place where bullets cannot reach."
  • Temporary Online Content: She is only available either as a random drop from Operation: Singularity, or as a login reward.
  • Thou Shall Not Kill: She despises war and conflict, which is distressing to her as it contradicts her duties as a T-Doll.
  • Underground Monkey: The wz.29 was designed after the carbine variant of the Gewehr 98, the Kar98AZ, and saw action against its German counterpart, the Kar98k, during the defense of Poland.

Metallic RT-20
Artist: XQ
Voiced by:

  • BFG: Not so much length-wise, but in terms of bulk and weight. The RT-20 is technically more akin to a recoiless anti-tank cannon than a conventional rifle, producing considerable backblast upon each shot, hence the exhaust pipe on top of the receiver, which adds up to a collective weight of close to 20kg unloaded.
  • Oral Fixation: RT-20 has a compulsion to bite something, no matter whether it is edible or not. Her character art and victory animation show her chewing on her own dog tags.

Artist: KIncora
Voiced by: Ayaka Fujii

  • If We Get Through This...: When asked what she would do if she were a retiring commander, she says that she would like to attend a human school given the chance.
  • Underground Monkey: A modernized variant of the M1A1 Carbine.

Steyr Scout
Artist: 小叶有喜
Voiced by:

  • Girlish Pigtails: Crosses into Mega Twintails territory due to them reaching down to her ankles.
  • Failed a Spot Check: She has amazing concentration and observational skills, as befitting a sniper, but as a result she tends to forget about things that she's not focused on.
  • Head Pet: Trevoil, her pet bird, perches on top of Steyr Scout's head in some of her dorm animations.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her left eye is nearly covered up by her down-swept hair.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Lavender-pink, to be accurate.

ZVI Falcon
Artist: 八才
Voiced by:

  • Affectionate Nickname: She calls the Commander "little lamb".
  • The Beastmaster: Like FN Ballista before her, Falcon has a pet bird of prey. In her case it's a, well, falcon, who's always perching on her shoulder.
  • BFG: The real ZVI Falcon is a 50-inch long anti-materiel rifle chambered in two different massive calibers (.50BMG & 12.7x108mm), used to defeat armored vehicles.
  • Mechanically Unusual Fighter: Falcon's skill and passive has her behaving more like a SG or MG, with a limited magazine size that forces her to reload after a few shots, therefore averting the usual Bottomless Magazines. Like an MG, RoF doesn't actually improve her firing speed, but rather affects how quickly she reloads instead.
  • Temporary Online Content: She is only available as a log-in reward and is currently not part of any loot or production pool.

Artist: Duoyuanjun
Voiced by: Yui Horie
"Commander, if there is anything that I can do for you, just give the order."

  • Bayonet Ya: Carries one on her person in her default outfit, and has it affixed to her rifle in her "Queen in Radiance" costume. It is, however, never actually used in combat.
  • Can't Hold Her Liquor: According to her side story, she enjoys a drink or two though she easily gets tipsy from them.
  • Fan Nickname: As a reference to her motherly, housewife-like nature, she is affectionately nicknamed "Raifu" within the community.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Bakes the Commander some muffins in her secretary lines, and makes apple pies for both them and the other T-Dolls in the appropriately titled side-story "Springfield's Apple Pie".
  • The Heart: Of Griffin as a whole. According to the costume stories, she is the one that every other doll in G&K knows and relies on. Springfield may have adopted this because, being an older generation model, her own combat usefulness is limited compared to the newer guns.
  • Hidden Depths: She's from Massachusetts and a hardcore Patriots fan, according to a short story written by one of the game's writers.
  • More Dakka: Her unique National Match-Grade AP ammo confers a whopping 8 points to her rate-of-fire at max level, allowing her to beat out all other RFs in terms of DPS during the initial 6-second "warm up" phase.
  • The Reliable One: Between aiding the Commander in their duties and caring for her fellow T-dolls, it is also implied by her costume stories that she is the one who plans and organizes parties on the base with great detail.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Mature and gentle, but is definitely not a pushover in a gunfight.
  • Skirt over Slacks: Wears white pants beneath her dress.
  • Team Mom: Seems to be her designated position among G&K T-Dolls. A piece of promotional art even depicts two facets of her life: one on the battlefield and one tending to her beloved Commander at home. She is also the proprietor of the T-Doll cafe in the Dormitory.
  • Underground Monkey: The M1903 was designed by combining elements of the Springfield Model 1892-99 Krag–Jørgensen and the Mauser Gewehr 98 rifles, making it a relative to the later Kar98k. This was also briefly referenced in the official manga, in which Kar98k refers to Springfield as "Onee-sama" for a day.

Simonov PTRD

Artist: Evan揚
Voiced by: Ai Shimizu
"Don't worry commander. No one can escape from my bullet."

  • BFG: A Soviet anti-tank rifle meant to shoot 14.5 mm rounds, weighing as much as 17 kg and requiring 2 men to operate. The barrel alone is over 1 meter in length!
  • Bowdlerise: In the censored versions, she is covered up by a tight-fitting shirt.
    • Ironically enough, her sprite can be seen wearing the original uncensored outfit.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: She's a perceptive and detail-oriented T-Doll, though she dislikes overly troublesome situations and would prefer to keep her nose out of it if possible.
    PTRD: "Aah, don't you think war is troublesome?"
  • Gainaxing: Does this in her chibi sprite animations.
  • Lazy Bum: Some of her lines has her half-jokingly asking for easier assignments, or outright wanting to stay in bed.
  • Shout-Out: Her exclusive item, the "Blue Thickened Cape", was made as a reference to Suō Pavlichenko from Darker Than Black.
    • It is worth noting that Pavlichenko was also a wielder of the PTRD.
  • Statuesque Stunner: If the scaling of her weapon in her artwork and sprite is correct, she's stands at a little under 7 feet tall!
  • Stripperific: In the uncensored versions she is affectionately nicknamed "Southern Hemisphere" by the player base for the sheer amount of underboobs her outfit displays.
  • The Tease: Her character profile states that she can be somewhat of an aggressive flirt towards the Commander.

  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Extremely prideful in and out of combat, but she absolutely can back it up with sheer skill.
  • Hidden Depths: Her profile states that deep down she's actually a big softy and a huge worrywort.
  • More Dakka: Though her base RoF is rather low, her skill allows her to temporarily raise it by up to 65%.
  • Technician vs. Performer: The Performer to SV-98's Technician. SVD would rather trust her skills and instincts over raw calculation.

Panzerbüchse 39

Artist: nineo
Voiced by: Hisako Kanemoto

  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: A tall, slender, and black-haired beauty with a straightforward and easy-going personality.
  • Badass Biker: Her "Burst Rider" skin gives her road leathers and a snazzy-looking chopper.
  • Coat Cape
  • Drives Like Crazy: Justified. A Tactical Doll's body can withstand greater force than a regular human, on top of their increased reflexes and acuity. An extremely reckless ride for a normal person is nothing more than riding somewhat fast for her. She also mentions racing with AEK-999 in her spare time, which certainly encourages this behavior.
  • I Call It "Vera": Downplayed. Though it doesn't have a specific nickname, she refers to her weapon as "kid"
  • One-Hit Polykill: Her skill, Penetrating Shot, hits everything between her and her intended target.
  • The Fashionista: Implied by her uniform and lines. Several of her lines imply that her outfit is made of expensive, high-quality materials, cautioning others to take great care of them.
    Panzerbüchse 39: "Commander, my clothes are not cheaper than the gun, please be careful with them."
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's about as tall, if not taller, than her rifle is long.

Heckler & Koch G28

Artist: エロ牛
Voiced by: Nozomi Yamamoto

  • Dramatic Irony: In her cafe story, G28 is looking for her older sister HK416 yet when she is finally reunited with her, G28 doesn't recognize HK416 due to Griffin PMC erasing all of G28's memories of the latter to keep the existence of Squad 404 a secret.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Her cheerful and carefree personality contrasts the no-nonsense HK416.
  • In-Series Nickname: Goes by Gillian while working at Jill's bar. The bar's regulars gave her that nickname. Funny enough, it's also the name of Jill's male coworker in her game who's Running Gag is that no one ever calls him Gillian but other absurd nicknames like "John Face".
  • Oktoberfest: Her "Wiesnbier" costume is themed after this, and quite appropriately for a T-Doll named after a German weapon, G28's favourite drink is beer.
  • Underground Monkey: The G28 is the designated marksman rifle variant of the HK417, which itself is the battle rifle variant of the HK416.

  • Shrinking Violet: While the gun itself is immensely popular, she dislikes attention and will do what she can to not stick out.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: A very bright red. She even lampshades the irony of her having such a bright and unique hair color, despite not wanting to stand out.

  • Badass Boast: Claims that she can take down a cheetah speeding through grassland with just one shot.
  • BFG: Her gun is bigger and more powerful than dedicated anti-tank rifles. The rounds it shoots is originally meant for autocannons.
  • Cold Sniper: A highly-focused and stoic T-Doll dedicated solely to her craft, she takes her role as a sniper very seriously.
  • Cringe Comedy: In her victory animation for her "Aristocrat Experience Service", she chokes and collapses after taking a sip of tea among all things.
  • Hidden Buxom: She's actually quite busty. Not that anyone knew until her summer bikini was implemented.
  • Hidden Depths: In her "Reindeer" costume backstory, she tells the Commander that she secretly wishes to see snow, which is almost nonexistent where she comes from. Of course, when the weather couldn't deliver, the Commander did.
  • Joshikousei: Despite being a South African gun, her uniform essentially makes her one.
  • Meido: Her "Aristocrat Experience Service" outfit turns her into this, with the rifle seemingly acting as her broom.

  • Badass Adorable: When in her "Onion Gunner" costume. She tries her best to retain her proud soldier personality, which leads to humorous results such as asking you to squat down when speaking to her or reminding herself to remain balanced as she walks with her rifle.
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: If the official 4-koma is to be believed. Being the absolutely serious soldier she is, Lee-Enfield prefers to prepare her meals by tossing everything "nutritious" under the sun into the pannote , much to the chagrin of Welrod MkII.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Has a monocle with a sniper reticle that she uses to tie her hair.
  • Hidden Depths: Her profile states that she is a good storyteller in private, making her popular among younger T-dolls.
  • One-Hit Kill: She is renowned in the current meta for being an incredibly beefy unit that straddles the line between the medium-damage, fast-firing RFs and the sluggish "Bamboo" nukers. With enough enhancement and when grouped with the proper HGs, Lee-Enfield can one-shot virtually all non-boss enemy types in the game to date without being massively overkill like the "Bamboo" lot.
  • Perpetual Frowner: She always seems either dead serious or permanently upset in both her character arts and in-mission sprites, with the sole exception being her third skin, in which her "younger" version smiles optimistically.
  • Real Women Don't Wear Dresses: Refuses to wear skirts or dresses. This leads to oddities like her wedding outfit being a leotard.
  • The Stoic: She has a proud and no-nonsense soldier personality.

"My name is WA2000. Commander, stand aside and don't get in my way."

  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: She is very proud of her status as an extremely accurate and high-performance sniper, to the point where she will constantly say it to your face in her acquisition line.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: According to her artist, she becomes this when the Commander is spotted with another T-Doll, so much so that he can feel her cold presence nearby. Her jealousy, however, does not extend to other T-Dolls.
  • Cold Sniper: Sells herself as a high-performance weapon solely made for killing. Once you get to know her though, she's actually quite wishy-washy.
  • Expy: Her outfit and her Cold Sniper personality is reminiscent of Hitman's Agent 47. Duoyuanjun even notes that her red tie pays homage to the gun's first videogame appearance through the Hitman games.
  • Hidden Depths: She is said to adore furry animals to a degree that she'll say strange things when she starts petting them.
  • Ironic Fear: Despite being a T-Doll, she has an irrational fear of ghosts, and is otherwise easily spooked by other things associated with Halloween.
  • Is This Thing Still On?: Despite her preferring to present herself as The Stoic, she squeed with absolute delight after MP5 presented her with a carton of chocolate ice cream she smuggled out of SF-controlled territory. Naturally, the comm channel to the Commander is left wide open.
  • Lethal Chef: She is one according to her illustrator.
  • More Dakka: Much like SVD above, but her skill is even more effective.
  • Poisoned Chalice Switcheroo: On two occasions, where she tried to prank the Commander with wasabi-flavored candy and salted coffee. Predictably, she fell for her own trap both times.
  • Rare Guns: The WA2000 itself is astronomically rare in reality, with only around 176 units having been manufactured at all before production ended. Even more so, hers is the Generation 1 model, which was made in extremely limited quantities even by WA2000 standards, before being superseded by the Generation 2 update.
  • Senseless Violins: Carries her rifle inside a violin case in her Prom's Rest Sign costume.
  • Sweet Tooth: She has a passion for sweet snacks and chocolate ice cream.
  • Tsundere: A seemly haughty person, but is in fact affectionate towards the commander. It's implied that this is because she views herself more of a weapon, designed only to fulfill her duties, than a person.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Chocolate ice cream, though she doesn't want anyone to know about this.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Despite her very mature and professional appearance, her voice is unusually high-pitched and squeaky. There are several HGs that sound older than her.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Bugs, and to a far lesser degree birds.
  • Wine Is Classy: In her "Snowy Appointment" backstory, she shares a glass of Glühwein (German mulled wine) with the Commander.

Mauser Kar98k
Artist: 芙芙酱
Voiced by: Ai Kayano
"Mauser 98k, at your service. Please allow me to sweep aside the obstacles in our path."

  • Awesome, but Impractical: Like most "Bamboo" RFs, she suffers from horrid mobility overall, which makes her quite lackluster despite her stellar damage. Kar98k ultimately suffers from having both a below average RoF and a long period of downtime in combat when her Skill activates, leaving much to be desired despite her status as a 5-star T-Doll.
    • Two particular aspects about her skill render her practically useless. The first is that its x7 damage multiplier is lower than that of other 5-star bamboos, who usually clock in at x8. The second, and most damning of all, is that the skill's effective power is split between two shots, each dealing x3.5 of her attack damage. This practically guarantees that the enemy will survive the first shot, shield up to use a skill, and render the second shot in-effective, making her completely useless as a bamboo. She did, however, find a niche use against the Doppelsoldners in the Continuum Turbulence event, where she is capable of one-shotting them with her skill, essentially allowing her to dispose of up to two of them per activation.
  • Coat Cape: She wears an oversized fur-trim coat.
  • Expy: She closely resembles Major Erwin Konig, in that she wears the same fur coats, grey uniform and a similar cap. It also helps that the Major's preferred weapon is a scoped version of the Mauser rifle.
  • Heroic Albino: She has very long white hair, pale skin, and red eyes
  • Lady of War: According to her artist, she was designed with an elegant heiress or even a queen in mind. This is also reflected in her elegant and commanding manner of speech.
  • Not Drawn to Scale: Verging on Small Girl, Big Gun. Her rifle is as big as she is, though whether this is simply a mistake or a stylistic touch is uncertain.
    • It is joked within the player base that her height is roughly 1.1 meters (110cm.), or the actual length of the weapon.
  • Series Mascot: Her face is the main icon of the game.
  • Shout-Out: Her third skill activation quote is likely a reference to Major Rudol von Stroheim.
    Kar98k: "Fool, our power is number one in the world!"

"Salute! Nice to meet you, I'm M99! Commander, please keep up the good work!"

  • Animal Motifs: Rabbit.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Pædo Hunt: Her many secretary lines imply that the Commander usually engages in...*ahem* "training", with her, on some nights, where he often teases her too much to her liking. The way she words it suggests that it has happened before.
    M99: "Teach me something tonight, commander. Don't tease me again though, the last time was way too embarrassing!"
    • Her damaged CG while wearing the "Rabbit Squad" costume makes it seem as if she's trying to call the cops on whomever did it to her. Her phone even has the number for the Chinese Police hotline punched in.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Is capable of dealing massive damage with her rifle despite her small frame.
  • Small Girl, Big Gun: Probably the most notable case in the game. Her gun is an anti-materiel rifle that weighs at twelve kilograms unloaded, and yet she has the smallest stature among all Rifle T-Dolls.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Of the RF class.

Artist: 十月十日 奏 (Heiwari Kanade)
Voiced by: Asami Seto

  • Awesome, but Impractical: Despite her monstrous damage potential, IWS is regarded as one of the least practical 5-star T-Dolls in the game as of the current meta due to her absolutely glacial pace of getting anything done at all. Slow to fire and even slower to set up, her awesome damage per shot is considered excessive and very situational, as there are only a tiny handful of bosses that boast HP mandating the use of such heavy firepower, if they haven't been dealt with using Fire Support Echelons already.
  • BFG: Her weapon, an Anti-Materiel Rifle is almost as big as she is.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She frequently drops or misplaces items by accident.
  • Difficult, but Awesome: Assuming you still want to make practical use of her, IWS requires a very specific set of buffing HGs to be effectivenote . This setup is colloquially known as the "Exodia Squad", due to how incredibly rare each individual component of it is.
  • Heroic Albino: Long white hair, red eyes, and pale white skin.
  • Mighty Glacier: True to her namesake's status as a BFG, IWS is slow to move, slow to fire, and her unique skill further sinks her fire rate to absolute oblivion. However once she's properly set up, she is bar none the most powerful per-shot damage dealer in the game as of the current meta behind NTW-20 and DSR-50.
  • The Reliable One: As a means of improving herself, she is always asking to help the Commander and her fellow T-Dolls.

Artist: liduke
Voiced by: Yuka Saitou

  • Armor-Piercing Attack: A given, considering that she's a RF, but her active ability takes this Up to Eleven by allowing her to deal more damage to armored enemies than standard ones. At level 10, one buffed shot to an armored enemy deals x10 of her base damage. When paired with either NTW-20 or M99 in a RF/HG echelon, she could make very short work of most event bosses by outright skipping special health thresholds where they will unleash special abilities.
  • Bowdlerized: Her Highest Bidder outfit was heavily censored even in the CN and TW builds of the game, where character CGs tend to be more laxed and skimpy compared to those released in more conservative markets like KR and EN. While her dress itself is already translucent, leaving little to imaginations, the original design has a wide open top and barely any cloth at all, and the sheer amount of bare skin suggest she's Going Commando as well. In the censored builds of the game, the open front of her dress is darkened to tone down on the Absolute Cleavage factor.
  • Double Entendre: Many of her lines are this.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: She only wears stocking on her right leg, leaving her left bare.
  • Femme Fatale: Beneath her calm and peaceful facade is a T-doll full of desire, with just her presence emanating a sense of danger. That said, it is difficult to ascertain what her motives are.
    • In her New Year costume story, the Commander got goosebumps upon learning that she was in charge of distributing the traditional New Year's red packets, and for good reason.
  • Lady in Red: Her personality altogether. This is also fitting with her "Pantone Peony" costume.
  • Odd Name Out: Not her entire name, but rather her prefix. While many T-Dolls associated with German firearms are given the "Gr" prefix when introduced on certain servers, DSR-50 instead has the very confusing "Gd".
  • Situational Sword: DSR-50 is currently the second most powerful "bamboo" in the game on a per-shot basis, and the most powerful by a large marginnote  if shot at armored enemies with her skill maxed and active. Said skill also prioritizes bosses, giving her a more dedicated "niche" than many other "bamboos". However, using her on normal armored enemies is usually overkill, and armored bosses aren't a common sight outside of certain events, so her great potential damage isn't often fully realized.
  • She's Got Legs: Made all the more apparent by her ridiculously-short miniskirt and one-leg stocking.
  • Temporary Online Content: She is only available as map clear reward for beating E2-4 of Operation Deep Dive, and cannot drop or be crafted otherwise.
  • Thrill Seeker: Her lines and costume stories show that she enjoys the thrill of danger, and that she isn't shy about making the plan even bolder.

  • Adaptational Nationality: While her rifle was made in America, TAC-50 identifies herself as Canadian as a Shout-Out to her rifle being mostly used by the Canadian Army and a tribute to a Canadain Joint Task Force 2 operative who made the longest recorded sniper kill in history in 2017.
  • Canada, Eh?: Not only she identifies herself as Canadian, her eyepatch is shaped like a Maple Leaf and has a love for Maple Syrup.
  • Drone Deployer: Her recon drone serves as a target spotter, and her active ability hits marked targets for high damage.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Loves Maple Syrup to the point she adds it in all of her meals with fans joking that TAC-50 is a Maple Syrup addict that rivals the chocolate loving FN FNC.

  • Meganekko: Wears a rimless pair of oval-shaped glasses.

Voiced by: Reina Ueda

  • Bad Liar: Most of what she says is clearly true. Obviously.
    • Because of her nature, she ends up going off the rails quite a bit in a letter to the commander for April Fools 2019, with her sister M1891 apologizing profusely in the posttext and speculating that M91/38 has no idea how to act on a day where all lies are legitimate.
  • Mechanically Unusual Fighter: Her buff tile affects rifles instead of handguns.
  • Odango Hair: Spots one bun on each side of her head in her "Miss Pinocchio" skin.
  • Underground Monkey: The M91/38 is a slightly larger infantry rifle variant of the M91's Moschetto carbines.

FN Ballista

  • Sergeant Rock: As seen in her lines, she is a highly disciplined T-Doll who focuses on maintaining a serious and professional work environment around her. She even calls out her squad leader, FAL, for being unfocused on the job.
    Ballista: "This fashion magazine belongs to... Ugghh, she's still just as unfocused as usual."

  • One Hit Poly Kill: She has potential to do this, as her active skill allows her to perforate anything standing between her and her target for moderate damage.
  • Temporary Online Content: JS 05 is only available from the Halloween 2018 event shop for 180 exchange tokens, and was pulled from rotation after the event ended. As of current, there is no other means by which to acquire her.

Cheyenne Tactical M200 "Intervention"
Voiced by:

  • Always Accurate Attack: Her active ability allows her to take careful aim and fire off guaranteed hits that also apply a damage debuff to targets hit by the attack.
  • BFG: Her rifle is as long as she is tall. It is even longer in her combat sprite, where it significantly dwarfs her when stood upright.
  • Fan Nickname: Fans were particularly quick to call her "Aimbot" and "Quickscoper" due to her skill's nature and her gun being a rather infamous choice for players of military-themed shooter games.
  • Gun Twirling: She manages to twirl a 15kg+ sniper rifle on one finger as part of her victory animation. Unlike the SG Type 97 T-Doll, whose gun is at least slightly proportional to her body, when M200 spins her rifle the stock goes through her shoulder, and the barrel clips through the ground.
  • Mighty Glacier: Like IWS 2000, she's slow to move, slow to fire, and just as slow to set up. But her skill effectively makes her one of the top damage-dealing rifles in the game, with the added bonus of having perfect accuracy while her skill is active.
  • Regional Bonus: Similar to Daewoo K2, 205th Armory T91, and Nambu Type 100, who were timed exclusives to the KR, TW and JP servers, respectively, M200 is this to the EN builds of the game and will be added to other production pools at a later date.
  • Shrinking Violet: According to her official bio, M200 is painfully shy and introverted. So shy in fact, that should someone else directly praise her for whatever reason, she will be left completely flabbergasted and confused, not knowing how to react.

"Stella Hoshii, that's my name. Alright, introductions are over. Now get me something to wake me up before we start work."

  • Cyborg: Has a very conspicuous cyber eye made to replace the one she lost as a child. She's pretty touchy about it. For the playable Stella, this is kind of ironic, given that she's an android now.
  • Emergency Transformation: At the end of the VA-11 HALL-A event, the real-world G&K manage to save the VA-11 HALL-A cast from their world's imminent destruction by extracting their data from 416's neural cloud before she woke up from her alchol-induced stupor. All of them got put into specially-manufactured T-Dolls resembling their former selves (aside from Anna, who got turned into a Fairy instead).
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: Threefold. Like all VA-11 HALL-A units, her own skill in buffed if her preferred drink is being made by Jill. Additionally, she receives a special synergy bonus if she is in the same echelon as her closest friend, Sei. Her use of little dolls of herself to fight is the three-fer, as Stella doesn't have conventional combat training in the vein of Griffin dolls or even Sei.
  • Guest Fighter: From VA-11 HALL-A.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: Due to her status as an Ojou, Stella goes into combat clad head-to-toe in extremely fancy and expensive clothes and accessories.
  • Ojou Ringlets: She has a pair of twin drills going down the sides of her head.
  • Powers Do the Fighting: Her source of damage are little drones carrying guns made to resemble her that follow her around.
  • Robot Master: Stella doesn't actually fight enemies herself, but instead deploys two miniature drones of herself to do the deed.
  • Unusual Ears: Being a cat boomer, she has muscle growths at the top of her head with differentiated hairs that make her look like a Cat Girl. She can't actually hear through them, however.
  • You Have Researched Breathing: Like other VA-11 HALL-A units apart from Jill and Dorothy, Stella has to be equipping her cyber eye to gain its bonuses, despite it already being an integral part of her body.
