Eustace’s Battle Concept

A skilled member of Society, Eustace excels at mid-range projectiles.

As expected for a man with his years of firearms experience, Eustace possesses an array of shooting skills. With his trusted seal weapon, Flamek, he can shoot lightning projectiles, also known as Flamek Thunder. He can also fire a projectile, Slow Kill, that ricochets off the ground. Eustace’s Rat Race is a grenade toss that explodes after a set period of time, while Rat Race (+) can attaches to enemies and be detonated with any projectile attack, allowing Eustace to go for significant damage.

Eustace also has four follow-ups from his rushdown attack, Close Combat, creating a variety of situations where he can choose to go for a sneak attack, combo, or other unique combination of attacks.

Take control of the battlefield by continuously using Flamek Thunder and Slow Kill. Then, use Rat Race to initiate various forms of pressure.
