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

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).
