Equipment

Overview

Imoko’s newest and most beloved dauteru, SL8 was originally the crate reward for Polarized Light. Essentially a WA2000 but with small Damage buffs SL8 arrives proposing a trade-off: Damage buff for the column she’s in, in exchange for the usual HG cooldown tiles RFs have, as well as a Damage self-buff that favours non-traditional RFHGs, on top of a strong RoF buff. In the end, she has a comparable DPS to WA2000 in most scenarios, but unlike the tsundere, she’s younger, cooler, and may love you eventually. SL8 is a welcome addition to both new Commanders and veterans alike, bearing a kit that allows her to slightly edge over the vanilla self-buffers in hybrid teams, which are becoming increasingly common, while still holding her own in a standard RF/HG echelon. Remember, sax is love, sax is life.

Normal

Damaged

Strengths

Strong stats

Damage aside, SL8 has one of the highest RoF base stats of all RFs of 41 and an average Accuracy of 78. For comparison with her biggest competitors: WA2000 has a RoF stat of 39 and Accuracy of 82, while Lee has a RoF value of 36 (40 with her Ranking SPEQ) and Accuracy of 78. Her biggest competitor, R93, also has a RoF stat of 39.

Tiles

While 10% Damage is not a huge buff, it’s an unrestricted buff, which means that on hybrid ARSMGs SL8 can buff, even if only slightly, her teammates. It also means she buffs her RF partner, and is particularly useful for HG DPSs like Python and Deagle.

Bold and cute

With her release, Imoko has shown she can draw bold, cute and hot Dolls. Yorokobe Shikikans.

Weaknesses

Low Damage Stats

At 120 Damage, SL8 lags behind most 5 star RFs, and even 4 star and 3 star RFs, even sharing the same Damage stat as M1 Garand. For comparison, WA2000 has 130 Damage base stat, while Lee has 135 Damage. That is partially fixed by the second part of her Skill, as a standard RFHG team has, at the very least, 2 different classes positioned in her tiles. R93, her biggest competitor, for comparison, has 133 Damage base stat.

Skill’s requirement

SL8 depends on having different dolls’ classes on her tiles to activate the Damage stacks. While she’ll always have one class of doll on her tiles, as the other RF is not supposed to move around, kiting, especially retreat kiting, may make SL8 miss some stacks when her Skill activates.

RR: RoF and R93

Unfortunately for SL8, R93 exists. Also a hybrid RoF Damage self-buffer, R93 outperforms her in most scenarios. This is partially because of SL8’s low RoF buff of only 60%, for comparison, WA2000’s RoF self-buffs 75% while SVD self-buffs 65%, and both have a higher base Damage stat than SL8. R93 also outperforms SL8 in the dork department.

Team Options

To take full advantage of her Skill, SL8 is best fielded on hybrid teams. Compositions that have M500 Mod and Nagant Mod/Python, or MP5 Mod are worth mentioning. Do note that those teams usually have Grape in it, so Commanders would be forfeiting Grape’s tiles.

Because her Damage stat is on the low end, HG Damage buffers are her best friend. Thus, HGs like P22, Mk23, and Grizzly should be fielded with SL8.
SL8 still works on traditional RFHG teams, and with only two stacks, she performs similar to WA2000 and Lee.

History/Trivia

Essentially the civilian version of G36. SL8 was released in 1998 in the civilian market and quickly became a favourite in the sporting rifle world. She initially came to be after H&K had to stop exporting semi-automatic G36s to the US after a law banning assault weapons came into play in 1994. Because the law forbade pistol grips, it was replaced with a sci-fi esque looking thumbhole stock. Because of costs in reshaping the semi G36s exterior, the iconic optical sight was exchanged in favour of a simple Picatinny rail. Because of her exotic look, and the dominance of AR-15 and its variants in the US market, the SL8 never sold well, with importation stopped in 2010. Because she shares many components with G36, it is possible to convert SL8 into the earlier semi G36s, or even a full-blown G36 clone. 

In-game wise, SL 8 is a sharp contrast to her sister, G36. Having silver hair, a colour that can be considered a shade of blond, which is the trademark of 36 platform Dolls, SL8 is young and bold and curious, and sometimes gets in trouble because of her curious nature, which can be mistaken as unruly. Because the gun’s design reminded Imoko of a shark, she decided to add shark elements in SL8’s design, the most notable one being the upper part of her shirt that resembles a shark’s jaw, and SL8’s teeth, which are serrated like shark teeth.
Fun fact: In SL8’s Carnival Band skin, released during GFL’s 5th anniversary in CN during 2020, SL8 plays the saxophone, while G36 plays the piccolo. Music-wise, the piccolo always plays a supporting role, adding on the sound of violins or flutes in orchestras, much like G36 plays the role of a supportive maid and adjutant. Meanwhile, sax is often associated with jazz, a musical genre that eluded youth and vibrance when it started, and that often has sax as its key music component, and more often than not a sax solo, much like SL8 is bold and vibrant.
