The recruitment for Viper is now live, so Shift Up has provided a bit of clarification on how her skills work.
Viper’s Skill 1: Snake Sense – “when the target appears”
“Target” refers to the final target Rapture in the stage. As players can clear the stage after defeating the target, the skill can also be used in most PvE gameplay, including Interception. However, please note that there are no targets in two special types of stages: Defense Battle and Base Defense.
Viper’s Skill 2 Effect – Vamp
1. Basic way to activate effect
The Nikke will not be targeted by the enemy while the skill is in effect, so she cannot become the target of all single-target attacks. While Vamp is in effect, the target of the enemies’ single-target attack will change to other characters. However, attacks that are already launched cannot be canceled, so they can undo the Vamp effect.
2. Effect Scope
2.1 Single-target attacks include attacks launched at 1 enemy target or 1 Nikke. Most Rapture attacks and certain Nikke skills (such as attacks often launched by other Nikkes in PvP) are included.
2.2 Normal attacks by Nikkes are also included. Although ordinary attacks cannot be launched at a character under Vamp effect, the effect can be undone when she is attacked by weapons with AoE such as a rocket launcher.
2.3 Skills that enhance shooting, such as Snow White and Maxwell’s Burst Skills, also cannot be cast on a character under Vamp effect.
Although Modernia’s Burst Skill cannot target a character under Vamp, she can still deal damage with her Burst Skill’s AoE attack.
3. To Undo Effect
Afer a certain duarion, this effect will be undone. However, Vamp can still be interrupted halfway through its intended duration under the following circumstances:
3.1 The effect will be undone when a Nikke suffers a direct attack. This can easily happen when she is struck by an attack meant to target 2 or more people. If she suffers a single-target attack before Vamp takes place, the effect will also be undone. If she suffers shared damage or incidental damage from a continuous attack, the effect will remain in place.
3.2 When all other allies perish while Vamp is in effect, it will be undone. When all other allies have already perished, Vamp cannot be activated.
