Stats
Analysis
Review

Horizon is a mecha character that has a berserk state, similar to Alex. Her knockback allows her to easily control the battlefield and keep the enemies away from her - which is good because her stats aren't that great compared to other tanks. At least in her non-berserk form.

Her knockbacks work a bit differently from other employees too. The distance the enemies are pushed away from her is far bigger than similar skills used by other employees. This combined with her special skill, allows her to push the whole enemy team to their ship in mere seconds.

It's worth noting that she's not as tanky as other defenders, even with the 5% MDL she gains in her berserk state. Also if the enemy has barrier or buff removers and her barrier gets eaten, she's a sitting duck and dies easily. Still, in most cases, it won't matter because she has usually already finished her job by pushing enemies back which should earn you an easy victory in PVP.

Horizon is also quite good in PVE where she gives Overflow a run for his money, especially in full mecha teams that recently became popular in Shadow Palace 5.


MDL = Max Damage Limit or DMG Taken Limit is a stat that only appears on SSR rarity Defenders. How does it work? For example, if an employee has 10% MDL it means that any hit that does more damage than 10% of his max HP, will have the part exceeding the MDL value lowered by 80%. This prevents Defenders with MDL from being one-shot by skills/ultimates.

A way to counter MDL is to use employees with great ASPD like Administration Rifleman, Ifrit, or Millia Rage.
