No, neither. CB does not deal damage, so it cannot trigger anything, and it still works off the "old" model for explosions -- you need to kill the target with the trigging power. Snap Freeze is the only cryo-anything in the game that readily primes cryo expolosions.


FQE is comfortably bottom-tier.


Powers can deal direct damage without being able to detonate. Pull, for example, deals impact damage and doesn't detonate anything. Cryo Explosions with cryo blast and cryo ammo do not require the enemy to die, but they need to be fully frozen. There's a slow animation where enemies transition from chilled to frozen.. you can only blow them up when they're ice sculptures.

CEs are indeed not very reliable though. They are not the QFE's selling point outside of bronze. She's a support unit that can mass-debuff enemies with cryo blast and get off double damage incinerates. With every cryo blast, you can get off two boosted incinerates (even with radius over duration) while also debuffing for the team. Turret can draw aggro too. Her abilities are very underappreciated, but it is true that she is not a high roller.



Sorry, but the QFE can be a very high roller if used properly with the right weapons. Many times, I have outscored others using her and not as a support role, but very aggressively.


So have I. I consistently top scoreboards with her, but that doesn't make her a high roller. A QME of equal skill would easily outscore her. Her strength lies in support to male up for lack of damage output.

Also matter how you slice it, QFE is debuffing enemies constantly with cryo blast. Cryo not only debuffs, but it weakens armor, staggers enemies, and freezes unshielded targets. Outside of area scan, it can be much more beneficial to a team than tactical scan. No one would ever scan a brute or a ravager because of how inefficient it is. Cryo blast users can debuff anything with no concern.

Yup. To both.

Hey sabotage doesn't award points for backfire right?

Seems like that would make the QFI (and LOL if you put sabotage on the Marksman) a lot less useful

In my personal opinion:
Quarian Male Engineer
Quarian Female Engineer
Quarian Male Infiltrator

Quarian Marksman
