Stats
Analysis
Review

Machine Collector is an anti-mech supporter employee who is one of the best counters to mech-based meta teams and certain counter teams reliant on buffs. Deployed right, she makes the enemy frontline melt with her mix of debuffs applied to them.

Overall she uses a few unique stats, that are hard to find on other employees:

  • DMG Res Penetration (buff for allies) - Allies ignores their target's DMG Res (which means they deal more damage). This effect is doubled for allied Mechs.

  • DMG Increase suppression (debuff for enemies) - Decrease the target's DMG-Increase bonuses (so their Anti-Ground/Anti-Role damage bonus will be lowered by X, making them do less damage). The effect is doubled against enemy Mechs.

The problem with those stats is that they can't go into negative, meaning if an enemy doesn't have any DMG Res, Machine Collector will do nothing with her DMG Res Penetration. This makes that stat way worse than DEF shred for PVE because every PVE enemy has DEF stat, but has no DMG Res unless stated otherwise or through Role Disadvantage Res.

Still, in the recently released Relic Dungeons (the place where you farm T7 gear) she's used in all auto-teams against the Titan boss.
