"Captain this one is disabling our resistance to energy!"



Background

An orange, pointy Nexar enemy that uses the low ranged but high damage Nexar Light Wave Generator. It is found to the left and right of the Fulzar Black Hole directly below the Warp Gate, as well as many of the spawners in Vorsran. The Nexar Skirmisher is usually farmed by players for the very high demand weapon Nexar Light Wave Generator, which may take thousands of kills to get.

Strategy

They shoot their Nexar Light Wave Generator at the player which will debuff the players energy resist by 25%. Because of this, you must equip over 100% energy resist to counter this. With some minor armour (1k+) they become trivial to face. However, when they are in packs with the Nexar Vanguard they can be dangerous due to the armour debuffing beam weapons of the Vanguard.

The best way to kill them is with high dps weapons, Scatter Shell and Shadow Flames are best. A resistance debuffer such as Infested Missiles and Void Tentacles is needed. Finally a Shield Regen debuffer is highly recommended Hunter-killer Launcher is the best choice. First fire off a round of Hunter Killers, this will make one of them come toward you with its shields already activated. Then use your resistance debuffer, and then slam your heavy dps weapon on them, by this time their Q would have run out and they will take the full force of your damage. They die relatively quickly if you use this method. Another method is to use Sticky Bomb with high rate of fire (at least 10ps) with medium flat damage (at least 1500 per projectile for both energy and kinetic). Get the attention of one and scurry from it until you have a nice big gap between you and the Skirmisher. Then fire the weapon until it comes close to you (it will use up it's shield in the process and the shield will stop when there's a good amount of stickies on it), then use shield (q) to nullify it's weapon damage. If it is not dead then scurry outwards and repeat.
