Best & Recommended Runes

1. Chrono Strike

Triggerable bullet time is excellent for most combat situations for both offensive and defensive use. This Rune will come especially useful for those requiring precision such as picking off enemy weak points.

2. Air Control

The Air Control allows you more space to dodge and weave past enemy attacks while in mid air, and making platforming jumps. This effect also caters to the Super Shotgun's Meathook, allowing you to quickly turn to place yourself on the target's blind side.

3. Equipment Fiend

Equipment Fiend is a solid choice for crowd control using your Ice Bombs and Frag Grenades. Once your Praetor Suit's Ice Bomb has been upgraded, this Rune can be combo-ed with a Sentinel Crystal Skill 'Health for Blood', which charges Blood Punch for each extra health picked up while at full health; debuffing, healing, and unleashing multiple Blood Punches.
