Billy's Strength

Attack Character good at both Long and Short Range

Billy is a long range Pierce type Attack Character. Basic Attacks are good against single enemies at long range, Dash Attacks are good against multiple enemies at short range. He also has Special Attacks that are good at both short and long range, making him easy to use in various situations.

Move & Dodge while Attacking

Billy can keep shooting while moving by performing Basic Attacks while crouching. He can also slide and shoot with his Dash Attack so it's easy to keep attacking while on the move. This will make it harder for the enemies to attack you, while you can keep attacking them.

NoteAt C2, his Rolling Shots are considered Dodging so you will become invulnerable and Dodge Counter at the same time.

Billy's Weakness

Firepower is Greatly Reduced in Long-Range Combat

Billy can be used for combat in long-range, but the bigger the distance is from the enemy, the amount of damage inflicted will decrease. Also when you get C4, EX Special Attack's CRIT Rate increases the closer you are to the enemy, so you will basically fight while maintaining close range.

Tips!It is possible to reduce the decrease of firepower with the Signature W-Engine "Starlight Engine Replica", but even if this is the case, the expected firepower value will be higher in close-range combat.

Billy - Best Team Comp

Early Game Cunning Hares Team

SupportAttackStun
NicoleNicoleBillyBillyAnbyAnby

Early Game Cunning Hares Team

You will be controlling the agents in this team in the early main game story. Their Attributes aren't the best match but they are easy to use. They can teach you how to use the most basic strategy, Stun the enemy with a Stun Character, Switch to a Support Character and use Quick Assist, then use the Attack Character to deal damage.

Point!Billy can attack long range, but the damage dealt will decrease so you need to stay close to the enemy.

Double Electric Team

AttackStunSupport
BillyBillyAnbyAnbyRinaRina

Aim for Shock Anomaly

Use Anby and Rina who are both Electric and Billy's firepower to constantly aim for shocking the enemy. Billy can also apply Disorder if he stays in battle and all characters can activate their Additional Abilities in this team.

Switch to Billy once enemy is Stunned

Billy's Ultimate will be enhanced if you use it after using Chain Attack twice, so you need to continuously Stun the enemy and use the Chain Attack. Stun the enemy with a Stun Character, Switch to a Support Character and use Quick Assist, then use the Attack Character to deal damage. Finally use the Ultimate to deal massive damage.

Billy - Strategy and Combo

Use Movement Techniques to Maintain Short-Range

Although Billy is a Shooting Type and can attack from long range, if you want firepower, you are to maintain short-range during battle. Make full use of Dodging shots and Dash Attacks to continue attacking the enemies.

Switch Attacks between Single and Multiple

Basic attack Crouching Attack is good against a single target and for several enemies it is recommended to shoot in all directions with Dash Attack. While switching attacks depending on the enemy, mix in Special Attacks with Anti-Interrupt (invincibility) at the appropriate timing.

Use Ultimate after 2 Chain Attacks are Activated

Billy's Ultimate has an Additional Ability that increases the damage dealt by +50% and 100% after 2 Chain Attacks. The damage of his Ultimate with excellent range is greatly enhanced, so you should always use it after a Chain Attack, especially in boss combat.
