Introduction

The Ember is a close-range (up to 350 meters) heavy special weapon.

Strategy

The Ember is a special weapon because it‘s the only weapon so far that can bypass both built-in or mounted Anciles and physical shields (Ecus). The Ember also damages physical shields. This is a dangerous weapon due to it's very high DPS and the fact that its flames act as both explosive (splash) and plasma (energy) projectiles.

Although the Ember is a great weapon, a major drawback is that the Ember's firing speed, compared to other weapons, is very slow, taking quite long to empty. This weapon isn't great to counter dash robots, however, it can bypass their shields and its large spread usually guarantees damage. It is also not ideal to counter fast, light robots such as Stalker.

A good place to mount this weapon is on the Carnage, Raijin, Fury, or the Inquisitor. It is not uncommon for players to mount an Ember or two on other robots with heavy hardpoints. The Carnage can utilize the Ember well, using the Rush ability to quickly get into the 350 meter range of the Ember. The Raijin receives a 30% damage increase when using the Bastion ability, allowing it to have the firepower of 2.6 Embers, along with a physical shield, but at the cost of being stationary. The Fury can wield 3 of them for tremendous firepower. The Inquisitor can utilize the weapon with the Descend ability to quickly take out opponents without fear of retaliation. Lastly, using 4 Embers on the Butch is not advised as the cooldown time of the Quick Draw ability is twice as long as the unload time of the Ember.
