Arknights Guide Ahead New Operators (Fiammetta Banner)
Fiammetta – 6 Star Sniper
Fiammetta, as an Artilleryman, possesses a wide Attack Range. The Burning Bullet she fires and the Burning Marks it leaves behind can explode to deal damage to enemies around the blast tiles. When her third skill is activated, she will continuously barrage enemies at her max Range. As the powerful damage capability comes at the cost of her life, Operators with continuous healing skills could support her well and maintain her Attack buff.
Kazemaru – 5 Star Specialist
Kazemaru is a Dollkeeper. She swaps to a Substitute instead of retreating when receiving lethal damage. She can sacrifice her HP to sharply enhance her next attack or summon a Substitute on a surrounding melee tile.
Enforcer – 5 Star Specialist
Enforcer is a Push Stroker that is free to get and user-friendly. He can push the target towards the attack direction and stun it if the target collides with High Ground. His second skill allows him to immediately push back all enemies within a certain range and stun all of them, which enables him to gather the enemies together.
