Never used him, I literally have no idea how to build him.
I guess the "no speed penalty on AA" upgrade is good... Any other tips? Full builds and strategies are welcome as well!

Go for the kraken shot (burst shot at the end of scene) and just work on landing that

Get kraken shot and the damage increase upgrade (it'll also affect the damage of kraken) and like eddster said just try to focus on landing your last shots. For orb the increase slow, size and reduced speed makes the orb really obnoxious to play against and always works for me.

As for the AA row all the upgrades are usable imo, although I think the +20% attack speed upgrade for just 170 is too good to pass up on so I usually just pick the damage upgrades or range alongside it.

Regarding 'Flying Camera', it's a fun upgrade to use so give it a go in pubs and see how you feel about it but I find that by tap shooting with the range upgrade you can achieve similar results.

My usual build:

Scene Illumination:

kraken (Swiggins Magazine) + damage increase (Ayla Magazine) + *situational blank for everything except homing*

Slow-Mo Shot:

Slower orb + More Timeslow + *situational: size/heal*

AA:

Galactic Police Scanner + Incriminating Dirt + Adresses of the Stars!

utility:

HP + regen + Speed

(if too much CC in enemy team):

HP + BKM + Speed / HP + Regen + BKM


Flying Camera feels like a good upgrade, but actually is the worst upgrade on the AA row because as previously mentioned tapping every AA shot has similar results and doesn't cost 210 Solar and a valuable slot.
Homing on Scene Illumination has the same problems.
Please Never buy additional duration on slowmo orb. And usually you dont need to upgrade the slowmo orb until you've bought Kraken and have a fully build AA.

Max focus has one of the most "obnoxious" AA's in the game. You can't go wrong building it first unless you have an ayla on your team and you're trying to purge the mid. (as well as many similar applicable scenarios.) I always grab the Galactic police scanner, Incriminating Dirt, and then whatever the match demands, I'll build other abilities before deciding what I want to use as my 3rd AA upgrade as it varies depending on mid/late game. Boots are a mandatory Early game upgrade as well, make sure you sneak them in there.

have a strong AA early game is very very advantageous! Boots will help him remain evasive. Good harass will make your teammates smile! :ayla:

Don't buy flying camera because that upgrade effectively makes you 210 solar poorer. And nothing more
