Mesa is a gunslinger and her abilities will allow her to manipulate the guns and bullets when dealing with a lot of damage in a very short period of time. Her passive is Marksman’s Dexterity. If she is not equipped with any melee weapon, then she will get some extra health bonus. She is often suited and used in different types of missions. Invest some forma to deal with a lot of damage potential.
Mesa Special Abilities
Ballistic Battery – On activating this ability, Mesa will store some percentage of damage that was caused by her guns. On casting the ability again, it will unleash the absorbed damage with the next shot.
Shooting Gallery – This ability allows Mesa to create two energy lassos. One will be around her and then another one around the ally. The lasso around the ally will change periodically and keep transferring between her allies while the other one around her will always stay with her until the ability is active. While the ability is active it creates a jamming effect of the weapons for the nearby enemies. The Melee units will be stunned for a short duration.
Shatter Shield – Using this ability Mesa can create a shield around her. This shield protects and reduces the damage caused by the incoming bullets and projectiles. And it also reflects the damage to her enemies.
Peacemaker – On activating this ability Mesa becomes immobile and draws her Regulators and Pistols, thereby gun down her enemies. The main feature is, it will create a focus ring that appears on the screen around her, all you need to do is, just hold the fire button that will allow Mesa to auto-target and shoot the enemies within the focus ring. And remember that, for each shot taken, the size of the focus ring will shrink, thereby reducing the effective target range. The damage can be amplified with firing until it reaches the max value and the rate of the fire will also increase for every shot.

The Regulator Mesa Build
Regulators, these are a group of secondary weapons of Mesa. Hence there is a need to use your pistol mods here. Creating a lot of Critical Damage and Critical Chance is an advantage to your damage output, you can achieve it with the help of Primed Target Cracker and Primed Pistol Gambit. We also included Hornet Strike, Lethal Torrent and Barrel Diffusion for the same reason. That is, we have listed the necessary mods you must equip for this Mesa Build. Now you can fill the remaining slots with mods of your choice or you can use the one we have suggested.
These Warframe weapons are provided with two Naramon Polarities and among them going for Heated Charge will be a better option. There are also other options like Convulsion, Maim, Seeker, Pummel. It is all based on experimenting and trying out new things. Try things out and find the best pistol mod for your Mesa Build.
Peacemaker Mesa Build
This Main Mesa Build focuses on her ultimate ability Peacemaker. The pacemaker is her ultimate ability which allows her to use her insanely focused gun skills to quickly take down every enemy in her sight. It also allows Mesa to destroy high-level enemies in no seconds. You need to collect as much as strength and efficiency, to deal with the damage without draining them completely. Unless you use Shatter Shield ability, you need not worry about duration. You can switch to Blind Rage instead of Primed Continuity if you don’t want to use your third ability.
This Peacemaker Mesa Build is a very strong setup. But it also has two weak points. The first thing is the nullifiers, as it is not easy to turn into nullifier bubbles and is pretty dangerous. Secondly, the artic eximus units, because it’s easy to kill one artic eximus unit but when there are two are more units that are close, then their bubbles overlap missile and will not target anything inside the overlap.
Flashing Muzzle Mesa Build
This Mesa Build is a casual one and doesn’t allow you to be as overpowered as you do with your main build. This build has nothing to do with your ultimate ability that often. But, using Muzzle Flash with your Shooting Gallery will help you to spread strong crowd control. And you cannot use this build against the Infested. There are many other features that you may be interested in. Like blinding and disabling the weapons of your enemies are strong that even works on Axi or Sortie level missions. To make this Mesa Build more efficient you need to collect as much as ability range and some good amount of duration. If efficiency is not your concern then you may drop Blind Rage and install any other survival mod.
With high damage output, inbuilt survival abilities and once you complete the Mutalist Assassination mission, then farming Mesa is pretty easy. You have to accept the fact that Mesa is once such Warframe suited to try out with the different build and for a different mission, but you need to invest some Forma for her and her weapons. You will need some good and decent mods to create your Mesa build. Farming her is a worthy thing and it will help you to have faster game progress.
