Tequila’s low DP cost makes him easy to deploy at any time. He has very high HP and good DEF, giving him good survivability even under high pressure. This also helps him make use of his first talent. His 3-block at E2 further reinforces the idea of him being able to handle multiple enemies. The characteristically low ATK is not an issue due to his trait and skill multipliers, meaning his actual damage output will be higher than the stats suggest. You can identify his trait being fully charged by the orange effect on his sword.

Strengths

  • High survivability and damage output
  • Low cost makes placement easy at any point in a mission
  • Talent allows for some passive damage against ranged enemies while inactive

Weaknesses

  • Poor helidrop capability due to 0-block off-skill, skill costs, and needing to charge up trait
  • Damage output heavily reliant on charging trait as much as possible
