Enzo is unique and a valuable asset to any team, allowing liberal use of special ammunition for maximal damage.

Enzo has good damage and two explosive drone skills, unlike other support characters. His survivability is high due to his regenerating shield ability, though he suffers from low mobility. This guide explains how to use Enzo, gear, and modules to help you in the First Descendant.

How to play Enzo in The First Descendant

The First Descendant Enzo Character

The best way to play Enzo is by using his ammunition to increase skill Start Supply. This skill feeds you with heavy ammunition, allowing you to consistently fire off Sniper and Grenade Launcher damage. While it has a long cooldown and is not mobile, drop the supply drone in a stationary fight with choke points. Allies can also gain increased ammo, and it’s super helpful for everyone’s DPS.

Enzo’s passive rewards multiplayer with players near him. In instanced-based content, your max ammo will be higher due to this passive. Again, take advantage of the extra ammo and supply drones by constantly using heavy weapons for maximum damage.

For damage, you have an Explosive Drone and Perfect Support. Explosive Drone stacks up to two times and is a smaller 3-meter AOE. However, you can use it back to back to gain a big chunk of burst damage. Perfect Support summons a drone and helps you for about 6 seconds, then fires off a massive missile. You can use both abilities simultaneously for huge damage in a short duration.

When it comes to surviving, use Enzo’s Enhance Combat Suit to quickly recover shields. The MP cost is high with skill, but you’ll dramatically recover shields but won’t be able to heal other allies.

Skills

The best way to use Enzo is to buff everyone’s ammunition via Start Supply and Shoot Support. Start Supply allows for players to pickup ammo, specifically “heavy” or the highest DPS ammunition. This allows everyone on your team to keep ammo and damage high. The Explosive Drone skill is your AOE and stacks up to two times. You have one defensive skill Enhanced Combat Suit that boost your survivability. Lastly, you want to use your Perfect Support supply ship for mob clear or boss fights. It will use a drone over its duration to attack enemies, provide supply bullets, and fire off a big missile at the end.

Below are the skills of Enzo’s character:

  • Start Supply: Summons a Bullet Supplying Device at the designated location. Supplies bullets to allies that approach the Device.
  • Explosive Drone: Launches an Explosive Drone forward. The Explosive Drone explodes on contact with an enemy or a terrain object, dealing damage.
  • Enhance Combat Suit: Summons a Shield Recovery Comms. When the Shield Recovery Comms is first summoned, recovers Enzo’s Energy Shield by a certain amount, then continues to recover the Energy Shield through Enhance Combat Suit effect.
  • Perfect Support: Summons a Small Supply Ship to himself and his allies. The Small Supply Ship periodically provides Supply Bullets and grants Perfect Support to allies. The Small Supply Ship attacks enemies in front while it is active, and when the skill ends, it fires a missile forward that causes a big explosion at its destination
  • Shoot Support (passive): Grants Fire Support to allies within an area around Enzo, increasing their max ammo capacity. Efficiency increases when Enzo disarms the security of the Encrypted Vault, and rewards increase when this happens.

Enhance Combat Suit

Best Reactor Stats for Enzo in The First Descendant

Example Reactor - The First Descendant

The best reactor for Enzo is Materialized Singularity because it boosts Non-Attribute skills, specifically Start Supply and Perfect Support.  The second option is the Materialized Phase, which boosts non-attribute and Dimension.  This will increase the number of Explosive Drones and Enhanced Combat suits.  The priority is to buff Non-Attribute skill first, then either Singular or Dimension based on support or damage.  Lastly, make sure to equip the right weapon to activate the bonuses.

In The First Descendant, reactors are powerful enhancements significantly impacting a character’s abilities, stats, and overall performance. Each reactor comes with an “optimal condition,” which requires a specific weapon type to be equipped to activate. Therefore, this should be your primary weapon for the build. They function as core components that provide substantial boosts and unique effects, enabling players to tailor their characters to specific playstyles and strategies.

Weapons for Enzo Build

Thunder Cage, Nazeistra’s Devotion, and Afterglow Sword are the best weapons for an Enzo Build. Thunder Cage submachine gun helps with mob clear when AOE up close range is needed. Nazeistra’s Devotion Hand Cannon is helpful for single-target fights where you need weak point (headshot) damage. The Afterglow Sword Sniper Rifle helps with long-range damage and compliments the hand cannon.

The following guide list shows the best weapon choices for Enzo Build in The First Descendant:

  • Thunder Cage – Submachine Gun
  • Nazeistra’s Devotion – Hand Cannon
  • Afterglow Sword – Sniper Rifle

Look for any weapon early that has a fast fire rate up close range while leveling.

  • HP Recovery
  • DEF

Enzo Story in the First Descendant

If asked to pick the most important factors for winning a war, the general response would be powerful weapons, a strong fighting force, and cutting-edge technology. However, Enzo would beg to differ.

Powerful weapons must be transported to the front lines on time, and a strong fighting force must be well-fed and capable of shooting accurately. Also, cutting-edge technology demands sufficient resources to sustain mass production. As such, for Enzo, the most important factor in winning a war is a seamless and systematic supply flow. If only such things had been achievable at that time… Enzo continues to blame himself for what had happened to his cousin, Lepic, as well as the annihilation of the 44th Grenadier Squad.

In the past, during the Agna Desert Defense Operation, Enzo, who had been quartermaster at the time, drove towards the front lines in a tactical armored vehicle to deliver the much needed ammunition to the besieged 44th Grenadier Squad
Not only did he intend to rescue his sole surviving blood relative, Lepic, but it was a race against the clock, as the timely supply of ammunition could turn the tide of battle.

But perhaps he was too hasty. The Supply Squad, which was enroute without a proper escort, was ambushed by the Vulgus, and all of the ammunition they were carrying was lost in the ensuing explosion. Now, it was he, not the 44th Grenadier Squad, who was in danger of losing his life. Despite finding himself facing death, he instead despaired at the fact that he had lost the ammunition which he needed to deliver to his teammates. That feeling of hopelessness… Losing both his comrades and his cousin this way…

Enzo’s Story Continued

At that moment, supplies started to appear from the ground on where he had been crying out in despair. It was later revealed that this phenomenon had been caused by Enzo’s Arche ability, Inorganic Matter Spatial Awareness Summoning, and this ammunition had been summoned from a faraway Albion ammunition depot. However, Enzo, who was unaware of this fact, believed that a miracle had happened and defeated the enemies by himself, eventually succeeding in transporting the supplies to the 44th Grenadier Squad’s location.

But there would be no second miracle. By the time he arrived, the Grenadier Squad had been wiped out, and Lepic, who was lucky enough to survive, had lost his right arm. Although Lepic would overcome adversity and become an outstanding Descendant, Enzo blamed himself, believing that if there had been no issues with the supply flow, a loss of this scale could have been prevented in the first place.

Never again would he allow himself to fail. Through perfect supply operations, he would save his comrades and win the war. Even now, as a Descendant under the direct command of Albion HQ, and as an executive officer, he is always revisiting the events of that day, repeating his promise. And whenever there is place that requires assistance, he will go in person to the front, providing as many supplies as the soldiers needed. His aim? To make something as essential for victory as supplies be considered a given and not a miracle.
