The Rifle Forward-ejection Bullpup, or RFB, is a gas-operated bullpup, semi-automatic DMR (Desginated Marksman Rifle) that uses 7.62mm or .308 Winchester ammunition. RFB's kit reflects her real life counterpart well, boasting the highest FP amongst ARs as well as the highest Accuracy stat. She also boasts a base critical rate of 30% instead of the default 20%, allowing you to reach the critical rate cap much more easily. However, she has an atrocious RoF stat of 54, making it the lowest RoF stat of any AR, greatly impeding her DPS due to slow target switching.
RFB's skill Ammo Supremacy changes her target priority to backline while gaining a damage and Accuracy boosts along with it. This is a powerful ability, but it has a relatively long ICD of 6s. In combination with the inability to use AP ammunition, she is not a replacement to RFs. The skill's main selling point and what propels RFB to become an irreplaceable option in some compositions is that she is able to bypass the very, very tanky frontline that some high priority threats use to protect themselves (eg Jaegers with Scouts or Guards). Given enough time, she can be effective at sniping down backline threats like Jaegers, Nemeums and Strikers while having all the benefits of an AR, including the ability to equip a PEQ at night.
The key to success when running RFB is picking the right fights. As previously mentioned, RFB can do her backline sniping job well if given enough time or against enemies that RFHG cannot handle. This becomes apparent when fighting against SWAP Jaegers during nighttime, as these enemies come with Evasion. Long fights where the enemies have the ability to spawn additional mobs such as Fail from DJMAX collab is also within her specialty. Her surprisingly long skill duration helps during such fights where she can continuously deal high damage with no risk of overkilling while having the ability to switch to the mobs to reduce the pressure from the tanks.
To conclude, RFB has a niche job. She is Recommended as the only AR with a backline targeting ability, allowing her to fill in the role of sniping evasive backliners at night. (She also has a really good Live2D skin)
