About this deal

The same weapon as used by the Zaku type mobile suits, it fires explosive rounds that were quite effective against the armor of Earth Federation mobile suits and battleships.

Poor Beam Defense: The Gouf has average armor for tier but high health. Unfortunately one stat that isn't terribly high on it is its beam weapon defense. The Gouf is very vulnerable to beam weapons and needs to beware the Gundam Ground line of suits, and the Gelgoog in particular. The MS-07B Gouf's regular left manipulator is replaced by a five-barrel 75mm machine gun shaped like enlarged fingers. It fires physical rounds at a rapid rate, and despite its bulky and awkward appearance, its barrels demonstrate limited degree of digital dexterity, including the ability to hold the shield, and to adequately grip the heat sword and various firearms.

The Gouf is a suit with a rather wide window, stretching from 250 to 400 points, and it gets stronger with every single level, gaining new skills and better stats. This is offset by the appearance of new and more dangerous suits to worry about.This next section of the guide discusses what to expect at every tier, and also give tips for bringing the Gouf above board. The Gatling shield is combination of a Gatling Gun with a modified MS-07B Gouf shield, and grants both offensive and defensive power in one single weapon. It also stores a Heat Sword Type D III, and can be mounted directly on the left forearm or on top of the 35mm Gatling Gun.

The Gouf outclassed the MS-06 Zaku II in terms of speed, power output, and melee combat ability, but its overall performance was not great enough to be justified by its increased cost. The Gouf's production was cut short by the development of a more cost efficient unit, the more powerful and nimble MS-09B Dom. Despite its very short production run, several variations were produced in limited numbers and it was still deployed across the world alongside Zakus and Doms. One customized unit was piloted by Visch Donahue, which had the original 5-fingered machine gun left hand replaced by a normal manipulator hand, in its place a 3-barrel 35mm machine gun was mounted on the left forearm. The name GOUF Ignited is a reference to J-Pop musician T.M. Revolution, who has done multiple themes for the various Gundam Seed series, and done the voice of Heine Westenfluss, the test pilot for the GOUF Ignited. T.M. Revolution's 23rd Single, and the first theme for GSD was called Ignited. Poor Effective Range: Your main gun has 200 range, the same as a Sturm Faust. Other machine guns have at least 250. The Anti-Air MG and Camouf MG have ranges of 350 or more. Bazookas tend to have about 300. You really only have a range advantage over Shotguns (150). This isn't as cripping as it sounds, but you are going to have to get very good at reading when the enemy is in range so you're not wasting fire or getting into a needless damage trade, and ideally use cover and moxie to protect yourself.

Directly contrasting the single ranged weapon, the Gouf has two melee weapons, both of which are extremely impressive, and a shield that is decidedly less so. The colors of Yzak Jule's GOUF Ignited is similar to the colors Shin Matsunaga uses on his customized Mobile Suits.

Originally posted by Riptor:Because those arent flashy enough? The last test was full of A-list protagonist and antagonist suits to show off. Something like a Dom or Gogg isnt going to wow anyone yeah man. Gigan is totally a suit used by a mainline antag.Mix-Up: The Gouf does surprisingly well in Mix-Up; 400 points is a good score type for most suits and the Gouf can perform rather well there, but can easily low-ball it at 350 or 300 and do just fine. The Gouf is still one-dimensional as ever, but the presence of enemy suits in this tier can easily let the Gouf surprise opponents. Many are the GP-02 (MLRS) that thought they were safe only to get bodied by a particularly angry Gouf. Bear in mind that beam weapons will be an issue and prepare accordingly.
