The Shedu is a sentient weapon that that is capable of pulsing out both heat and electric damage to enemies, taken from sentients and crafted for the Tenno.
The Shedu is made from sentient parts and uses their technology as means to not only deal mass amounts of damage but to also further disable enemies.
It fires heat pulses that will explode and deal electricity damage on impact but without harming the user.
It will discharge a radial pulse when the magazine is used up that removes sentient resistances and always deals an impact proc.
Ammunition for this weapon is infinite as it will just recharges once the magazine has been emptied.
The following are the Shedu stats:
- Accuracy: Has an accuracy of 28.6allowing it to hit from point blank to long distances.
- Critical Chance: Has a 25% chance to deal a critical hit with each shot.
- Critical Multiplier: Shots deal 2.1x more damage on critical hits.
- Fire Rate: Fires around 2.5 projectiles per second.
- Magazine: Capacity of 7 shots per magazine.
- Noise: Shots are very alarming and will alert enemies when fired.
- Reload: Ammunition takes 1 second before recharging and is unlimited.
- Status: Has a 23% chance to proc status effects per shot.
- Trigger: Automatic – weapon fires and continues to fire when trigger is held down.
- Primary Attack – Deals 71 heat damage per shot.
- Radial Attack – Shots will explode to deal 87 damage in an 5.5 radius.
The Shedu requires that you have a mastery rank of 13 before it may be used.
The Shedu parts may be farmed on the sentient ship that spawns as an anomaly in the Veil Proxima.
All of the Shedu parts are common drops and have a chance to drop from the Symbilyst which spawns on the sentient ship.
The following parts are needed to build the Shedu:
- Shedu Barrel
- Shedu Chassis
- Shedu Handle
- Shedu Receiver
The Shedu is capable of dealing a large amount of damage and basically is a combination of two attacks which are the initial hit which deals heat damage and the radial electricity damage.
Adding mods will affect both the primary attack as well as the radial attack making it possible to make lots of builds and mixtures for the Shedu.
Due to its area of effect damage, it is possible to take out groups of enemies easily with the right build.
Having both a high critical chance and a highstatus chance make the weapon deadly with specific or hybrid builds of the user’s preference.
Since the Shedu has a good critical chance, we utilize this and add two different elemental mods to increase the damage as well as create elemental combinations.
There are different combinations available to the players and they can modify it depending on what enemies they will be going up against.
This gives a good amount of elemental damage from both initial impact as well as the area of effect with a small chance for status effects as well.
(Critical Build damage)
For the status build, as it implies, we focus on status chance more than critical hits or high base damage.
The ability to add different combinations of elements for both the initial hit and radial hit allow several instances of damages to occur and the high status chance increases the chance of inflicting enemies with status effects.
This build is capable of dealing a good amount of damage to enemies, especially with weaknesses to the chosen elements as well as with the damage over time of some effects.
Some enemies can be inflicted with certain status effects that can weaken them such as the corrosive element status which peels off enemy armor, making them take more damage.
(Status Chance build damage)
Since the Shedu has a good critical chance as well as a good status chance, a combination build would do pretty well with it.
Instead of the elemental damage mods, it is possible to use elemental damage and status mods instead for the damage as well as increase in status chance.
We still add the Point Strike and Vital Sense mods to give the build a boost in critical capabilities.
This build is both good for dealing high amounts of critical damage while also causing status effects to weaken or damage the enemies over time.
(Hybrid Build damage)
Corrosive Gas Build (Anti-Grineer/Anti-Infested Build)
Since the Shedu was introduced during Empyrean and the high level Grineer started to become a problem for most players, a combination of corrosive and gas for elements became a great solution.
Since the initial hit from the Shedu is heat and the radial attack is electricity, adding toxin will cause the attacks to become gas and corrosive.
The corrosive damage will deal extra damage against the Grineer armor and the gas will do extra against the flesh.
Corrosive status effects will strip enemies of armor and gas will deal an area of effect damage over time.
Since the radial attack can hit multiple enemies, the corrosive status effect can be inflicted among all enemies hit.
The initial hit will be gas which when the status effect happens, the gas cloud will deal damage in an area which will most likely affect those stripped of armor.
These two elements come together and make a good combination to kill even the strongest of Grineer with ease.
(Corrosive Gas build damage)
There are many other builds with the Shedu and these are just starter builds that you can later on use and modify or test out with other builds.
As we have made an Anti-Grineer build, builds for other factions can be created as well depending on the mods that are used.
It may not seem like a lot at first site but the Shedu has a lot to offer since it does not only hit one enemy but instead it damages a whole area and not to mention the unlimited ammunition.
Depending on your playstyle, you can modify the Shedu for its critical prowess or its status inflicting capabilities and even mix the two if you like.
The Shedu can be used in many ways such as a weapon to weaken enemies before using a melee weapon or as your main assault weapon when in missions.
When it comes to having a good mixture of both critical and status in a weapon, you can easily shift to different builds based on your liking.
Dealing damage to both single and multiple enemies and using different elements to deal severe damage is easily done with the Shedu and in the hands of a skilled player, even the sturdiest of enemies can be melted with ease.
