The Kett Vakarsh is a melee weapon in Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Description Edit

The kett Vakarsh, translated as "punitive immolation," works on a similar principle as kett firearms: a mechanical core - in this case, a blade - maintains a magnetic field containing superheated plasma. The Vakarsh lacks the cutting power of a monomolecular weapon and ignites its victims instead.

Features Edit

The Kett Vakarsh is a mid-tier melee weapon that is able to prime enemies for a Fire Combo MEA Primer Heat icon. It is swung horizontally in a spinning move, which enables it to hit multiple targets around the wielder, making it useful for crowd control purposes.

Strategy Edit

As with most melee weapons, the Vakarsh is best suited to Vanguard-style builts that regularly get up-close and personal with the enemy. It excels in battle against clustered infantry where its spin attack can hit the maximum number of targets in a single strike, ideally killing them all before they can recover. Enemy reinforcements jumping from drop-ships are ideal targets for a Vakarsh attack.

Unlike its counterpart, the Kett Carfalon, the Vakarsh's burn effect means that it is possible and advisable to follow up a melee strike on surviving enemies with any detonator power to trigger a combo detonation and finish them off.
