Anton's Strength

Attack Character that Deals High DMG in Burst Mode

Anton is an Attacker that gets a huge buff during Burst Mode, using enhanced attacks that hit the enemy repeatedly. You can enter Burst Mode as long as you have enough Energy, so that also makes it easier to make use of short buffs activated by your allies.

Burst Mode Details
- Use EX Special Attack when you have at least 40 Energy to activate
- Energy is not consumed when activated but consumed when attacking.
- Burst Mode ends when Energy is depleted or after 30s.
- Switching characters does not end Burst Mode. Energy is not consumed if attacks are not used.

Extra DMG against Shocked Enemies

With the Additional Ability, Anton can deal additional DMG against Shocked enemies when in Burst Mode. If you team him up with characters of the same Faction and Attribute like Grace and Rina, you will have more chances to Shock the enemies in addition to Shocking them yourself.

Activate Defensive Assist Frequently

Belobog Heavy Industries Characters, including Anton, have powerful Defensive Assist skills compared to other characters and the Assist Points you consume are low when you receive powerful attacks from bosses. If you are using a party with multiple characters from Belobog Heavy Industries, the whole party can benefit from using Perfect Assist.

Anton's Weakness

Only Powerful in Burst Mode

Anton deals extremely high burst damage in Burst Mode, but the firepower in the normal state is quite low and Anti-Interrupt and invincibility are also rare. He has the advantage of long-range attacks, but basically it is important to maintain Burst Mode while in combat.

Not Good at Adjusting Distance or Attacking Opponents with Stagger Attacks

Anton has short range while in Burst Mode, and he does not have Dash Attacks which is used to get close to the enemy. Also, there are no means of moving or Anti-Interrupt while executing combos so he does not work well against moving enemies or enemies that frequently use stagger attacks.

Anton - Best Team Comp

Electric Shock Team

AttackAnomalySupport
AntonAntonGraceGraceRinaRina

Electric Shock Team

You have 2 characters for support that can enhance Shock buildup and Anton who can deal additional damage to Shocked enemies. It's easy to maintain the Shock effect, so you can deal high damage even without any Disorder effect.

Use Perfect Assist to Keep Switching Agents

There are no Stun characters and you only have one Attribute so you can Shock the enemies just by fighting normally. Just try to maintain Rina's PEN buff and use Perfect Assist and Chain Attacks to keep switching characters.

TipsAnton's Burst Mode continues even after switching characters so you don't need to worry about using it up before switching.

Belobog Heavy Industries Team

AttackStunDefense
AntonAntonKoledaKoledaBenBen

Use Set Effect with Koleda & Ben

By having Koleda and Ben you can utilize the Set effect buffs. Anton can activate the Additional Ability since they are from the same Faction and all characters have strong Defensive Assist skills so you can use Perfect Assist many times without worrying about Assist Points.

Don't need to use Ben often

Ben is in the team to enhance Koleda's stats and apply shields so you can switch to another character as soon as you use EX Special Attack and follow up attacks. Also, to avoid the shield from breaking switch to Anton when the enemy is stunned whenever possible.

Anton - Strategy and Combo

Enter Burst Mode Immediately upon Entering Battle

Try not to use Anton when he isn't in Burst Mode, you need to deal as much damage as possible using Burst Mode with buffs from your Allies. After Burst Mode ends, save up energy before switching, or enter Burst Mode first before switching to the next character.

Tips!If you use EX Special Attack first, Burst Mode will continue for 30 seconds after being switched.

Basic Attack with High Firepower and Quick Special Attack

The best attacks in Anton's Burst Mode is the high damage Basic Attack that does 3 hits which can be extended by holding down the attack button, and Special Attack with Anti-Interrupt which is quick enough to avoid taking damage. Basic Attack 1st hit deals little damage so use Basic Attack when you can finish the whole move like when the enemy is stunned or use Special Attack otherwise.

Tips!The 3rd hit of Basic Attack in Burst Mode can be performed even if you run out of energy during the attack!
