  • Use the Riotshield, Wicked module and the RV Rebuke System can allow you to tank huge amounts of damage while reflecting even more damage back at the attacker. This can be particularly effective against enemies with low-damage and high-ROF attacks, including certain bosses.
  • Dashing while standing still with the Riotshield still enables the shieldbash. This makes for a powerful short-range attack that can stun-lock opponents. Synergizes well with Lightning Boots, particularly if you're already Prestiged and reached level 25.
