Atlas (+EX) Series

Obtained by upgrading the corresponding Val weapon through Zig.

It’s here! One of Ranger’s best weapons from Episode 5!

This weapon series allows you to pick and choose 4 S-Class (S-Grade in NA) effects (only 3 on the non-upgrade version). The 4th slot grants unique benefits, and the Ranger weapon’s are very useful:

Rifle
Immunity to knock back attacks when standing still after some time (1-1.2 seconds)

Launcher
Tactics Trap PP recovery amount increased by +20%.

Immunity to knock back is far more valuable than +20% Tactics Trap PP for Rifle’s S4, so I’d suggest getting it ASAP. Note that the immunity doesn’t provide damage reduction unlike Massive Hunter. You still have the choice to pick and choose whichever fits your playstyle.

Ex Upgrade

UIItemAtlasRacheEX
UIItemAtlasVolareEX

Only obtainable by trading an 14Star Atlas (upgraded Val weapon) and Lumiere weapon of the same type through Zig’s shop.

The Atlas Ex series is the upgraded version of the Atlas line of weapons. They take on a mixed potential, having the damage bonus of the base (10% at Lv3) but the secondary element of Lumiere’s potential, essentially a Iron/Hero Will. Having the same S4 as before but now with an added safety net and largely increased damage, the Atlas Drache Ex is hands down one of the strongest rifle Ranger can possibly acquire going into the era of 15Star weapons. Launcher has always been a nuke and the Atlas Volare makes that statement stand.

The redux version comes out later in Episode 6.
