Suomi is a 5★ Evasion tank SMG that, despite the name of her role, has awfully low Evasion but massive HP similar to . Keep in mind that this role is not a name for generalist SMGs who are evasive by nature, but rather those who have long lasting power, suitable (thanks to Evasion Focus) for tanking bosses and elites and are more in line with force shield SMGs as a specialist. Just as any specialist would have in common for some unknown reasons, her stat spread of high HP and low Evasion gears her toward longer fights and her skill has a long initial cooldown unsuitable for general usage. She is best used for fulfilling certain Specialists rather than for daily use.
Suomi's strength comes from her lasting power. Her large health pool, the massive boost of Evasion that brings her Evasion to 260 (not counting any additional buffs from teammates and fairies) and its great uptime after the initial cooldown make for an amazing combination. She can last for a very long time thanks to this, whereas other SMGs would not be able to. This makes her ideal for drawn out battles where Evasion still works in situations like Agent's Fight. This is simply a Specialist for a good reason however. Low base Evasion and long initial cooldown spell out a lot of scratch damage. In a regular battle, it is very unlikely for her to make use of her powerful skill. Her tile buff and coverage do not help either. While they are not as awful as 's tiles, their coverage is lacking and the buffs are far from the best, definitely not enough to justify her other weaknesses if used as a generalist.
Because of Suomi's Specialist, there are not many situations for her to be utilized. On top of that, Evasion tanking is a role that is very susceptible to meta changes, plus better and more accessible Evasion tanks are expected to be released later down the line. Her viability is always on a thin line, she is a Specialist and entirely optional to raise.
