The Honeycomb Hacker unit can be very helpful when dealing with the Kikai Emperor. I was in a small group of players & there was only one lvl 3 HH player in it, and he hacked the Emperor & a few of the surrounding enemies near him. Thus preventing a lot of damage from being done to the group. The special attack when the bar is fully charged, is also very lethal if you're a level 3 HH. Especially in the UFO behind walls of hallways you have to go through.
Agreed. Honeycomb Hacker is king of the big takedown (seriously, the big enemies are a breeze). You just have to be a sneak. Problem is, if you get too close and you have the dog companion, he'll bop into enemies and make them notice you. If you're going to go this route, I would suggest having if not the shoes (so you can drop kick in a pinch), but the Edo Kunai or Throwing Stars. They're cheap and do a surprising amount of damage. The dog companion is a boss when it comes to taking down enemies, but you might want to leave him behind once you hit the UFO, where the enemies start clustering up.
I really love this job class! Don't let other's dissuade you. It is really fun.
Also, are they cyborg contacts really gender specific? Because I really want them for both my avatars.
