When you start playing the Marvel Strike Force for the first time, just putting together your five best characters is enough to get through. Simply upgrading and rating certain idols, as well as shifting them to higher gear stages, would certainly be enough to win you a lot of fights.
Eventually, however, you’re going to find stages in either the Coalition Raids or the Arena where there’s no five heroes or villains. It’s going to be time to start getting the game to the next level, and to do so, you’re going to have to start worrying about which characters really make a better squad.
To be sure, there’s no way to bring together a great Marvel Strike Force squad, but one of the nice facets of the game is that with hundreds of characters to pick from, there are plenty of variations of them that can work out well. That said, here are few basic rules to obey when you’re looking to bring together a team that’s going to be your squad for certain game modes.
- ِAvoid minions whenever possible — Yes, you can build a good team with minions on it, and they can definitely fill some roles. The problem is that they don’t have as many abilities as full-fledged heroes or villains, so they’re always going to operate at an inherent disadvantage. That’s why you’re going to want to leave them off your team unless there’s a good reason to include them.
- Look for traits that match – those keyword-Esque traits that each character has are not just for taste. Traits can work to make the abilities of certain characters more effective, making them better teammates for other specific characters. For example, the ability of Luke Cage’s Power Man gives him extra health depending on how many Defender allies he has. It makes sense, then, to get some of them on his team.
- A mix of classes helps, too – While you don’t have to make sure that every character on a good team is a different class, you definitely don’t want four or five of the same characters on a team. This will leave you too weak in some areas, so be sure to have at least three different classes among your five teammates.
Now let’s check out some examples of some of the best teams we’ve played and played since the Marvel Strike Force was launched.
Best Marvel Strike Force Duos
- Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, and Night Nurse – While not the hardest hit squad, it’s super-survival due to the various healing powers of Night Nurse and Iron Fist and Luke Cage’s Defender. Jessica Jones will strip her teammates of buffs on enemies or debuffs, and both Iron Fist and Daredevil have effective single-target attacks.
- Captain America, Black Widow, Shake, Hulk, and Rocket Raccoon – this squad gives all manner of headaches to their enemies. Start with Cap’s taunt and protect his skills, plus the Hulk will taunt. Black Widow is a stealthy nightmare, and Rocket, Quake, and Hulk both have a multi-target assault.
- Drax, Rocket Raccoon, Yondu, Crossbones, and Shake – Pick your poison to fight this squad. Drax begins with a challenge, which means that you can’t get to Yondu, Shake, and Rocket until they start hammering all the characters at once. Crossbones can do so, as well as he can threaten and take attention away from others. If you can keep Drax out of the way, some of the other characters are squishy, but it’s a major “if.”
- Thanos, Elektra, Wolverine, Spider-Man, and every healer – a few easy characters mean that you will fight first in most situations. Elektra and Wolverine each have crippling single-target attacks, Spidey has an automatic stun on his back, and Thanos can taunt with a whole group attack. The healer can help with stamina if anyone will draw the war out.
These are only a couple of the teams we’ve seen in Arena mode and said, “Wow, that squad is good.” So that was all for today’s article Hope You guys enjoyed it.
