Never stop moving. Gauss' battery is charged by movement, powering his devastating kinetic abilities. They can't kill what they can't hit.

Gauss - Steel Path | No Fire Rate Cap | Redline Munitions | Weapon Platform

Go fast! Bonk into things! Shoot a gun at speeds that should be illegal in-system but aren't!

How-to/general gameplay loop:

  • Use a weapon with an automatic trigger. I am not responsible for finger damage, carpel tunnel, or other issues related to trying to click fifteen times per second.

  • Cast Kinetic Plating(your 2) and Redline(your 4) whenever they're down, and sprint and use Mach Rush(your 1) to get the battery meter to 100% to maximize your damage reduction, fire rate, and reload speed.

  • Cast Energized Munitions(your 3) whenever you're fighting enemies to quarter your ammo usage.

  • Go fast.

Why this choice/other options:

  • Replacing Thermal Sunder with Energized Munitions - Thermal Sunder is less useful on a build relying on maximum duration, and Energized Munitions directly synergizes with Redline's fire rate increase.

  • Mach Crash and Stretch - Flex slots. Mach Crash is fun, but not necessary, and this build doesn't really scale with range at all. Swap for Speed Drift and/or Natural Talent if desired.

  • Arcanes - Swap if desired. Arcane Grace can help with survivability if you're dealing with rare damage types or Toxin.

Tips and Tricks:

  • At 100% Battery with Redline active, Kinetic Plating completely blocks IPS, Cold, Heat, and Blast damage, leaving you only vulnerable to several rare damage types and, unfortunately, Toxin.

  • You can instantly exit Mach Rush by aiming, firing, rolling, or meleeing. Use this to change directions quickly.
