This energy weapon is essentially a light version of the heavy Dragoon, and the medium Hussar. It has a similar appearance to both weapons, and deals about half of the DPS as the Dragoon, and around 35% less than the Hussar. This weapon shoot very fast projectiles, and is very accurate, however, near its maximum range, shots will miss on occasion.
Because the Marquess is based off Dragoon and Hussar, it also shares the same weaknesses. They are ineffective at close range and have a slow reload time which makes up for its high damage at medium range.
The Marquess paired up with Dragoon or Hussar can make for a versatile setup, this can also be effective when paired up with Calamity, Scourge or Spark as they share the same range and damage type. The Pulsar also pairs well due to having the same qualities as the aforementioned weapons, with the added benefit of being able to immobilize enemies.
Marquess is most effective when mounted on robots that can take damage easily, so as to compensate for its relatively slow unload time. Fragile robots such as the Bolt will be ineffective, as they would only land a few shots before being forced into cover.
