The Moderator's disruptor beam reduces enemy speed and rate of fire by up to 50% in addition to dealing damage, making it effective against almost all targets.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

Since the Moderator's slowbeam instantly hits, and since it deals significant amounts of slow damage, even high-weight raiders such as the Blitz and Pyro are ill-suited towards dealing with about equal numbers of Moderators. To counter this, try switching to using cheaper, smaller raiders like Glaives, or longer-ranged skirmishers like Ronins or Fencers.


Not only does the Moderator slow, it also overslows - the targeted enemy unit can take extra slow damage, equivalent to 2 seconds of decay, above the usual cap, though without actually increasing the slowdown (this means staying at the maximum 50% slowdown for 2 seconds instead of falling off immediately, as long as enough slow damage was dealt).
