FF FNP9 sits in the awkward position of being a support unit that has limited utility for Day battles and is significantly overshadowed in Night battles. Her skill and formation buff boost all allies’ ability to hit the opponents, but her own stats keep her from being an effective tank or DPS unit.
It is important to keep in mind that, like all HGs, FF FNP9 won’t be able to live up to her full potential without being max Dummy Linked. Although this shouldn’t be too difficult to do, the fact of the matter is that FNP9 is still outperformed by her comparables.
Slightly Above Average Stats
FNP9’s Accuracy, Evasion, and Rate of Fire are above the average for Handguns.
Enemy Evasion debuff
FNP9’s skill, Cover Suppression, is exceptionally useful for Night Battles to mitigate the Accuracy Debuff those stages apply. Its usefulness is still applicable during normal battles, and is very effective against highly evasive enemies.
Strong Formation Buff
FNP9’s formation buff increases Rate of Fire and Accuracy, further aiding her allies in Night battle.
As a common 2 star T-Doll who is available as a drop, FNP9 can be max Dummy Linked without any difficulty.
Low HP and Damage
FNP9 is not fit for the frontline, and doesn’t deal much damage to foes.
Outperformed at Night
While FNP9 offers good Night Battle utility, here are more useful options that outperform her.
Hard to use at low Dummy Links
As with most HGs, when FNP9 possesses a low Dummy Link, it is difficult to use her effectively.
Overshadowed by more useful T-Dolls
Even among her 2 star brethren, FNP9 falls behind in utility compared to others.
FF FNP9 is on the lower end of Damage, Evasion, and HP compared to the averages of her fellow HGs. Her Accuracy is only 1 point above average and her RoF is only 3 points above average. This places her in the position of not being very good at tanking or dealing damage, meaning that her buffs are the best reason to use her.
Her inability to tank or deal damage means she shouldn’t generally be in the frontlines, but to maximize use of her formation buff, she needs to be in the center of the formation. This means she needs to have Tanks and DPS units make up for her own lack of ability.
FNP9’s skill applies an Evasion debuff to all enemies for 8 seconds, and it is on a 12 second cooldown timer. While this seems like it would be effective, it pales in comparison to other Accuracy Supports. P38, for instance, provides a more significant Accuracy buff in all but 1 of the same tiles as FNP9, and an even larger, longer-lasting Accuracy buff during Night Battles on a quicker timer.
During Day battles, however, FNP9’s skill and formation buff are just about unmatched if one is fighting evasive enemies. There are plenty of allies who bring Accuracy formation buffs, but none of them boost Accuracy and decrease enemy Evasion during Day battles. This provides FNP9 with a very niche use of being a great support unit when facing foes with high EVA.
Overall, FF FNP9 is best used against evasive foes, or with Allies who need Accuracy buffs. Still, though, there’s better options to use than her, so it is suggested that Commanders don’t invest in her too heavily.
ARs with low Accuracy
FF FNP9’s formation buff improves Accuracy of their allies, but ARs generally don’t need help with Accuracy. If you need to use an AR, use one with a low Accuracy stat such as ASh-12.7, FAL, and Type56-1.
SMGs tend to have low accuracy, so utilizing an SMG that has high damage potential is a good use of FF FNP9. Example SMGs include Vector, PPS-43, and M38.
While MGs don’t have the low Accuracy of SMGs, they definitely fall below average. MGs are likely to be the best candidates for FF FNP9 to buff, due to their high Damage potential. Accuracy and Evasion debuffs will help them quite a bit, and some examples to use with FF FNP9 include M2HB, PK, and Gr MG5. These 3 MGs are special in that they all utilize the Terminating Barrage skill which allows for every 3 hits to add a Damage multiplier on the next hit.
Keeping the frontlines clear will give a team a little bit of extra time to attack, and keeping FF FNP9 in the back center position allows her to provide buffs to all the allies present with her formation buff. The SMGs will tank, and the ARs or MGs will provide DPS from the back row.
This formation capitalizes on the DPS portion of FF FNP9’s formation buff. Having 3 DPS units lining the middle column allows one to reap the maximum benefits of their DPS units. The downsides to this formation include having heavily concentrated enemy fire on a single SMG unit, so it’s important to have a strong SMG in that position that can handle the punishment.
A semi-automatic pistol which comes in 5 Variants. Other variants are FNP-9M, FNP-40, FNP-45, and FNP-357. Each variant, aside from the 9M, use different calibre rounds. The 9M is a compact version of the 9 itself.
