The Battle Born is a passive module.
This module grants a robot with stack-able defense points for 20 seconds the moment the equipped robot takes damage in battle.
The robot using Battle Born is prone to wasting the module's effect by taking damage from a stray round. As such, it is advised to stay away from hotspots or stay in shelter under roofed areas. A way to counter this is by using an Ancile, or robots with a built-in Ancile or Aegis barrier, such as the Bulwark or Haechi. An Ancile will protect you from these rogue shots and not trigger the Battle Born module.
Battle Born is typically usedin beacon games, mounting them on robots fighting for center beacon at the start of the battle, or holding a beacon. Prime candidates for mounting Battle Born are robots seeking to enhance their high durability even further, such as Phantom, Blitz, or Invader. This way for the period of the bonuses granted by its ability you have created an almost-unstoppable killing machine.
To enhance this barely noticeable effect you can upgrade the module or stack multiple Battle Borns.
It is advised to mount a Heavy Armor Kit instead of a Battle Born on robots that seek to enhance their durability long-term, but if you want to enhance it short-term Battle Born is a better choice.
