T-Doll Analysis

Equipment

Special Equipment
Hayha Memory Chip
K6-24X56

Overview

Often compared/paired with Springfield because: both are ara ara oneesans, 4 star RFs, bamboo RFs, widely known World War 2 Rifles, and have night SPEQs. Mosin, however, takes a different approach: her SPEQ further cements her role as a hard hitter, directly contributing to her nuke’s damage, as well as her overall DPS, with it’s +30 Damage. Other than that, she is comparable to Springfield in every way, which essentially hinders her viability, as Springfield is a career reward that comes pre-levelled at 70x4. Unless Commanders can afford to farm her map through manual farm or auto-battle, and somehow lack stronger RFs, there is little reason to raise Mosin.

Special Equipment
Hayha Memory Chip
K6-24X56

Overview

While not on the same level as Type 88 Mod, Mosin Mod is also another example of zero to hero. Taking advantage of her strong Damage stat, with her chip SPEQ equipped, Mosin Mod further cements herself as a slow, hard hitting RF, similar to NTW Mod, but at a lower cost. That does not come without a cost: Mosin is an expensive 4 to 5 star mod, her pre-mod is hard to justify raising, which means raising her from zero, and, for veteran Commanders, she has a direct competitor in her niche in form of Rico: Snowballing Damage buff with strong, fast nuke. Her Mod SPEQ is a Crit Scope with a small Accuracy bonus, which means Commanders can skip it if they have an abundance of 5 star VFLs, which also makes her Mod significantly cheaper. For those who do not have RIco (post Gunslinger Girl collab Commanders) and those wishing to have another strong RF in their roster, Mosin Mod is a welcome addition. Just remember: she drinks her vodka pure, and is touchy when drunk.

Strengths

Ara

Mosin goes “Ara in one of her voice lines. Springfield does not. Nuff said

Furthest bamboo targeting

Often bamboos, on top of being niche because of their charged shot takes several seconds to build up, also have an issue of targeting. Mosin, fortunately, doesn’t share this issue, as her Steady shot is coded to strike the furthest enemy. As the enemy backline is usually where fragile, dangerous units are positioned, her Bamboo shot is guaranteed to cripple one enemy at least. Added with her SPEQ, she can instantly delete one group of Jaegers/Cerynitis/Nemeums who are usually positioned behind meatshields.

SPEQ makes her damage go brrr

With her SPEQ, Mosin pre-mod only loses to NTW-20 (165), DSR-50 (163), and IWS2000 (162) Damage wise, maxing at 161 Damage.

Weaknesses

Bamboo

Bamboo RFs like Mosin are niche by nature.

Very low RoF

Mosin has a base RoF of only 30, comparable to NTW-20 (her direct competitor as a hard hitter) and lower than other bamboos, such as DSR-50 (also her competitor as a hard hitter RF), KSVK and M99, all which have 31 RoF.

Springfield

Springfield is awarded upon completing 5-4, at level 70 and 4 dummy links. She’s comparable to Mosin in every way: Skill, Rarity, RoF, Damage and Accuracy, with the only changing factor being that her SPEQ buffs her RoF by 10, whereas Mosin’s increase Mosin’s Damage by 30, and is harder and more expensive to farm. All that said, if a Commander has a need for a cheaper than 5 star bamboo, there’s little reason to pick Mosin instead of Springfield.

Full Analysis

Mosin’s relatively short Initial Cooldown does little to help her viability as charged shots are forced into a niche by nature. To add to this, Mosin’s Rate of Fire is abysmally low even for RF standards at 30 RoF; this puts her capability at dealing with lesser mobs as one of the worst in class. Mosin-Nagant’s special equipment, the Hayha Memory Chip —which can be farmed in Chapter 5-4N— does nothing to help remedy for her weakness as it only adds more damage to the already lethal T-Doll.

Mosin-Nagant, however, holds her place as the second best charged shot RF firmly, only lagging behind Springfield, who has higher RoF — and this status can be solely attributed to Mosin’s relatively low Initial Cooldown.  Even though Mosin sacrifices speed of fire for higher damage, this does not hinder her ability to one-shot bosses in any way, effectively rendering her a better choice over ‘large nukes’ such as M99 and NTW-20.

It should be noted that the Hayha Memory Chip grants Mosin a very specific usage in basic data simulation, as it makes her basic attack the strongest out of all RFs and allows for clear times below the one second mark. In practical applications, though, it is not as useful.

Overall, Mosin-Nagant is a very situational RF whose niche will not prove necessary in any stage of the game, but she is still among the best the charged shot RFs. Less specialized RFs will generally perform better than she will, but at the very least she does have some notable strengths.

Strengths

Snowballing Skill 2

With her SPEQ, Mosin Mod can easily Snowball her Skill 2: she kills fast an enemy, activates her Damage buff, which makes it easier for her to kill another enemy, which, in turn, refreshes her Damage buff. The Damage buff also makes it easier for Mosin to one-shot enemies with her nuke, which activates her RoF buff.

Second Highest Damage stat in RF class

With her chip SPEQ, Mosin Mod peaks at 165 Damage, only second to NTW Mod. DSR-50 ends up overshadowed, having just a “mere” 163 Damage stat. This means Mosind essentially acts as a pseudo permanently Damage buffed RF.

Stronger Skill 1

With her Skill 2, on top of a stronger initial multiplier, her Skill 1 makes it even easier to delete dangerous backline enemies. Bonus: That’d also mean Mosin Mod gets to activate the RoF buff of her Skill 2.

Weaknesses

Expensive Mod

Being a 4 to 5 star mod, Mosin Mod is an expensive mod both in terms of Cores and in terms of Memory Fragments. Newer Commanders will have a hard time justifying modding her in favour of other more important mods, like M4A1, AR-15, Calico or 416. The high cost can be cut back significantly if Commanders wish only to bring her up to Mod II, as her Mod SPEQ is an improved Crit scope, and thus can be safely skipped for Commanders with an abundance of said scopes in their armory. For those who wish to Mod III Mosin, they have to incur on the cost of bringing her up to Mod III, on top of enhancing two SPEQs.

Rico

For older players, Mosin Mod suffers direct competition from Rico, due to some similarities: both work as a strong, and fast nuke RF, both have strong Damage stats due to snowballing Skill, in Mosin’s case from her Skill 2 and SPEQ, and in Rico’s case from her passive. While Rico has a smaller initial Damage stat, compared to Mosin Mod with chip SPEQ, she also can buff Position 2 from Position 7, which is a valuable buff when dolls like P22 and Webley are fielded.

Dependence on chip SPEQ

Mosin snowballing her Skill 2 largely depends on having her chip SPEQ fielded. While Commanders who can Mod her can easily farm her SPEQ.

Mosin’s relatively short Initial Cooldown does little to help her viability as charged shots are forced into a niche by nature. To add to this, Mosin’s Rate of Fire is abysmally low even for RF standards at 30 RoF; this puts her capability at dealing with lesser mobs as one of the worst in class. Mosin-Nagant’s special equipment, the Hayha Memory Chip —which can be farmed in Chapter 5-4N— does nothing to help remedy for her weakness as it only adds more damage to the already lethal T-Doll.

Team Options

Mosin really really needs those RoF buffs, due to her very low RoF stat. Thus HGs with RoF tiles and/or Skills, such as Five-Seven, SAA Mod, Calico and Astra, are her best friends. As she has a low RoF, RFs like WA2000 and SVD, who has a RoF skill, and M14, who has a naturally high RoF, complement her well as her partner. Just don't pair her with Springfield, there's no need for two bamboos in an RFHG.

Team Options

Same recommendations to Mosin pre-mod applies: Wants RoF HGs so she can shoot more, especially now that her Skill 2 rewards Damage buff for killing enemies with her standard shot, and Position 7 because of her tiles.

However, Commanders may want to pair her up with a Damage HG to ensure she can activate the RoF portion of her Skill 2, or activate the Damage portion against stronger enemies (like Minotaurs).

History/Trivia

Mosin’s origin can be traced back to Russia (surprise-surprise) with the Russo-Ottoman war of 1877 and 1878, during which the Russian forces got their asses handed to them because the Turkish troops had lever-action Winchester Repeating rifles, and the poor russians had single-shot rifles.

With the incentive to upgrade their infantry's small arms, in 1889 a department of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Empire acquired several rifles for testing, notably the French Lebel 1886. In the same year, 3 more rifles were submitted for evaluation: two in 7.62mm and one in 9mm caliber. One of those 7.62 rifles was by Captain Sergei Ivanovich Mosin, and it was aptly named Mosin's rifle; the 9mm was by Léon Nagant.

Trials were concluded in 1891, with Mosin's rifle promising, but flawed. Disassembly was lengthy and required special tools, and their quality was low due to being just 300 hand-made and hand-fitted rifles. Final requirements were then decided upon, and the designers reworked their rifles. Mosin's rifle got picked and production was ordered under the name "3-line rifle M1891" (the 3 line refers to caliber, 1 line is 1-tenth of an inch, or 2.54mm).

Several flaws had been discovered in the meantime, one of which involved the aforementioned Léon Nagant.

The magazine spring was loose and not attached to the base plate, so it would be easy to lose. Mosin's original design also had problems with feeding, the 'interrupter' mechanism that should have prevented it was arguably the least reliable part of the entire rifle. By 1930, these had been fixed in the M91/30 variant. 

The interrupter mechanism is where Léon gets involved. He had borrowed and internationally patented the mechanism (Mosin could not do so since he was an army officer, and the design was owned by the Russian government) and filed a patent suit. Due to small politics with Nagant being both generally helpful and cooperative in sharing experience and technology, and not being involved with competing governments to Russia, the commission that picked Mosin's rifle all the way back in 1891 awarded Nagant with the same amount that Mosin did - 200 thousand rubles.

The decision to not include inventor names in the rifle was deliberate, as Mosin's rifle included characteristics from other members of the military, some suggested by the small-arms commission, and of course some from Nagant. 'Russian' wasn't even included in the name, it was simply a 3-line M1891 rifle.

However, Nagant also used this situation for publicity, and the name Mosin-Nagant (although wrong) appeared in western literature, and it caught on. Probably because it sounds much better than the 3-line M1891.

This rifle has been in many, many wars and conflicts. Too many to list. To this day, it still stands as one of the cheapest arms to equip a given number of fighters, and around 37 million were produced in Russia alone.

The rifle itself has a few design flaws that you won't find in, say, a Mauser 98-style rifle. It has a tendency to jam shut after firing, due to the bolt handle being used as an asymmetrical backup/safety locking lug. But it's also a Mosin-Nagant, affectionately named Garbage Rod, so you don't need to feel bad when using a nearby rock or log to beat it open and resume firing. The russian-made ones are also notably poorly made, with just about anything rifle-y beating it in terms of accuracy. 

Fun fact: Her chip is a homage to Hayha, the White Death. Simo Häyhä was a farmer and hunter. No, really. He was also an exceptional marksman from his youth. During compulsory military service, he was able to estimate distances incredibly accurately (up to 150m away, he was able to estimate the distance within 1m), and managed to hit a target 16 times in one minute... 150m away. With a rifle that only held 5 rounds at a time. That had to be manually cycled after each shot. That's an achievement for a non professional shooter even today, with full power autoloading rifles.

Well, he was also a notable user of the Mosin-Nagant, managing 259 confirmed kills in the Winter War with it until he was seriously wounded, with him estimating to have shot around 500 - he didn't count kills where multiple snipers shot the same target, as well as ones killed with an SMG in a group.

Although the SAKO M/28-30 (read: Finnish Mosin) wasn't his only weapon (he also used Ceia a Suomi KP/31), it was his most used weapon, preferring to not use optics as they would present a smaller target, be more reliable in the extreme weather, and wouldn't have a chance of reflecting sunlight off the lenses.

The name White Death comes from Finnish propaganda, tales of an invisible soldier that wouldn't miss, hidden among us the snow.

Even after getting wounded while filling commies with holes, he still lived to 96. What a chad.

Fun fact 2: Due to her similarities with desktop video cards, her chip is often called an Nvidia card. M1918 BAR, who also has a chip SPEQ, also has her SPEQ nicknamed Nvidia card.

Fun fact 3: While there is no reason to increase a Rifle’s Evasion, as they are slow and definitely not meant to tank enemies, it is believed that her chip has Evasion as yet another nod at White Death. He was notorious for evading full Soviet patrols, snipers, bombings, and even surviving a shot on his face.
