This is a basic build for a moa made for kicking enemies. I made this build around the new precepts to make a durable companion that could handle enemies by itself but also survive in steel path runs.
Thanks to the links mod, you'll give him a good amount of survivability and, adding the [Blast Shield] overshields, you'll get a moa that will survive any sortie and 2 hours of steel path with zero issues (longer missions will make it die, but not too often).
The kicks are surprisingly strong when built with a stat stick (my build is here: https://overframe.gg/build/117905/ ). Recommended the [Helstrum] for the good CC effects it will give when shooting the rack of missiles. Good splash damage with high status chance.
