As a T-doll UMP40 is an unique T-doll and seem to belong in a very specific niche, both her individual performance and formation effects suggests this.
UMP40 features a one-of-a-kind skill, her active skill is a permanent toggle skill with a cool down of 666 seconds, it is unlikely for any combat sessions to last over 11 minutes for it to be available for activation again.
Leaving the skill inactive UMP40's evasion rating will increase every two seconds while lowering her damage, this effect stacks five times. Activating the skill will remove all the current buff and debuff UMP40 have, after activation her own damage will increase every two seconds while lowering her own evasion, this also stacks five times.
UMP40's stats are similar to the other two UMP T-dolls in game, somewhat in the middle ground of SMG UMP9UMP9 and SMG UMP45UMP45 . Provided with the same equipment, 40's combat performances should be somewhat similar to the other two UMPs.
- Combat Performance
Entering combat and having the skill activated, UMP40's own damage stat increases to a relatively high value after 10 seconds, with the 150% constant damage increase after 10 seconds she can contest the MVP title even against SMG SR-3MPSR-3MP in extended combat sessions. But at the cost of evasion rating being lowered, renders UMP40 just as vulnerable as SR-3MP.
By leaving the skill inactive UMP40's evasion status also increases up to a maximum value of 50% constant, but as a 4* rarity SMG her low HP pool does hinder her tanking performance, this means she isn't as good as the other top tier SMG evasion tanks such as SMG RO635RO635 and SMG MP7MP7 .
40's tile buff and shape are also considered unique amongst SMGs, she provides 500% critical rate increase for other SMG units in the tile 8, 9, 2 and 3.
- 40's tile buff and shape are also considered unique amongst SMGs, she provides 500% critical rate increase for other SMG units in the tile 8, 9, 2 and 3.
- 500% increased crit rate might seem like a big value, but however SMG units by default only have 5% crit rate, when increased by 500% it only adds up to 30%. Since that equipment are calculated before tile bonus, 100% crit rate on a SMG can actually be achieved by fitting a suppressor, however that will take up the accessory slot, meaning the SMG unit can no longer mount optics and lose out on accuracy.
- Her inability to buff AR units on her tile also dissuades her usage as a main tank, since being unable to provide buffs to AR dolls can be considered a major weakness in ARSMG formations, the vital position of tile 5 are usually occupied by SMG G36CG36C or SMG C-MSC-MS with their powerful tiles that effects all three AR dolls on the back line.
- Slot 1
|A piece of equipment exclusively available for all UMP dolls, UMP40 is no exception. This particular Exoskeleton provides the unrivaled +35 evasion bonus of a T4 exo-skele while having no active damage penalty, instead it offers a little bonus in critical damage. Having this exo-skele can provide the maximum evasion bonus for UMP40 without hindering her damage output potential, a fine addition for the T-doll.|
|X series Exo-skele does not have any damage penalties, one can make use of this if they do not have the exclusive equipment but still wish to use UMP40 as a DPS SMG.|
|T series Exo-skele boosts the maximum evasion rating while having damage penalties, one can make use of this if they do not have the exclusive equipment but wish to use UMP40 as a tanking SMG.|
- Slot 2
|(Most) SMG units can only equip HP ammunition as their slot 2 equipment, if one chooses to have UMP40 as a tanking SMG unit, one can neglect the upgrading of her slot 2 equipment and give the high grade HP ammunition to other damage dealing SMG dolls.|
- Slot 3
|Holographic optic provides both damage and accuracy, the two stats that are vital for a DPS type SMG. The rate of fire penalty is rather negligible on a SMG doll, since most SMG dolls by default have above 85 innate rate of fire. With this optic installed, UMP40's damage output will increase significantly.|
|When used as a DPS unit, night combat equipment is recommended on UMP40 for night sorties.|
|One can make use of a suppressor if they are using 40 as a tanking unit, as it provides additional evasion.|
