Girls Frontline Back Online After October 18th Maintenance

Spooky, Scary Girls With Guns

Greetings Commanders! Girls’ Frontline is back online after the October 17th maintenance, and things are getting extra spooky at base!

First and foremost, we will be seeing the return of one of the Halloween events titled Butterfly in a Cocoon Rerun. You can see the clear rewards below.

Completing missions will also give you some store currency that you can use for a few goodies you can view below.

There’ll also be a Rescue Welfare program where you can exchange certain medals to get some of the limited drop T-Dolls from that just will not drop for you.

Also, we’ll be seeing two new T-Dolls joining the pool, the first being a 4-Star SMG named MPK.

The Walther Maschinenpistole Kurz, or Short Machine Pistol, is a well-known 9x19mm SMG manufactured in the 50s and used extensively by the Germans. This one’s a classic, folks, featured in so many FPS games by this point that you’d be hard-pressed not to know this German hit. The T-Doll holding the famous gun has an interesting setup, opting to be an SMG standing at the very front there. An odd position, but there’s a clever reason for that. Her ability, though, made me ask some questions…at first. See, her ability applies Quench, which causes 0.5% max HP loss (5% for the active skill) and causes 20% extra damage intake. Thing is, it applies to both sides of the field, and there’s a bonus 10% enemy move speed and attack speed if your own units are afflicted with Scatter (more on that with the next T-Doll). Even so, it seems horribly illogical to throw that at your own team, right? Well, not so fast. Let’s take a look at her sister, MPL.

The 4-Star SMG, MPL, called the Walther Maschinenpistole Lang, or Long Machine Pistol, is a semi-well-known 9x19mm SMG manufactured in the 50s and used extensively by the Germans. If this sounds familiar, it should, because this is literally an MPK with a long barrel. Nothing else to see here, move along.

Okay, with that out of the way, let’s talk about the T-Doll holding this military classic. While at first glance her tiles seem a touch peculiar, her skill makes me understand a bit of how she works. In an interesting twist for an SMG, she’s a shielder meant to slot into the middle, with another tankier SMG in front of her. Which SMG is that? Well, you’re going to want her sister, MPK, up there. Let’s take a look at the obvious stuff first. MPL’s passive applies Scatter to all units near her with a 6-point shield, while her active gives a much stronger 18-point shield, but gives units with that shield a 20% vulnerability debuff for 6 seconds. Interestingly enough, if a unit has a shield and also has MPK’s Quench debuff, it takes 40 points of damage. Again, things look illogical here…until you learn about their Union Skill. If MPL and MPK both are in the same Echelon, the debuffs don’t happen to allied T-Dolls, making the enemies a good bit of a mess and your units well shielded and helped. So far, these two are the only ones with this ability, and while it seems a bit situational to whether or not you can pull and afford to level both of them, I really like the idea of these and hope more creative teams pop up like this in the future.

 

As an extra, though, we also have the 5-Star Assault Rifle, A-545!

This gun has a bit of a strange history, as it started as the AEK-971 (yes, that is related to the T-Doll we know as AEK-999) but was later developed into the KORD 6P67 that is known here as the A-545, which is apparently the old name for the KORD 6P67. Yeah, that’s confusing. Anywho, the gun itself is chambered in 5.45x39mm, has a rotary rear drum aperture, and ambidextrous fire mode selectors and safety mechanisms, and spent a good time competing with other Russian classics like the AK-12 and AN-94. This is something good to keep in mind, because the T-Doll herself is kinda like a fangirl of Team DEFY…mixed with the drunkenness of AK-47. If she either is the leader, or the Echelon’s leader is gone, AR’s get 20% extra crit damage. Activating her active ability increases damage by 55% and crit-rate to 100%. Great for a about 10 seconds, then she has a permanent 40% accuracy and evasion for the rest of the battle. Worst part is these can stack! Really, you shouldn’t be leaving battles going on long enough for that to happen, but it’s the fact that really there is so much debuff to her skill that makes me think she’s going to be too specific in application to make the risk worthwhile. A shame, but I do still definitely see potential as a raifu.

To finish this section, keep in mind that once maintenance is done, you’ll be able to choose one of these new T-Dolls for some Anchored Construction! Meaning you’re gonna get your new raifu, one pull closer at a time!

Moving on, we have two returning Ringleaders up for grabs, but there’s a twist to one of them. While Destroyer is returning in all her glory exactly as we remember her, Intruder is getting an absolutely gorgeous (and spooky!) Halloween costume called Sorcoress of the End. Absolutely great stuff here!
