Dumbest way to die in Symbiote Difficulty

So I'm nearing the end of my plow through of Symbiote difficulty, and I still have over a thousand strands. So I decide rather than sit on them, I'll just buy *everything* and use it all to blast through the last map. Which goes amazingly well for the most part, until I get to Symbiote Supreme. And then blam, dead. Huh, that's odd. I revive the Sym and go again. SS uses his SP3 on me again, and I survive again, I start attacking and then poof, I'm dead again. Okay, I must be doing something wrong here. I close the app and restart just in case its something funky, and then revive and go again. Looks good, I start attacking and dead again. Now I'm really [removed by moderation], and I decide something must be wrong, and maybe there's a funny interaction between all those symbiote buffs I'm using. Let's see, cauterize is fine, cracking blow is okay, I can't see anything wrong with running Frenzy, or In for the Kill, or Purge. Power Start 1 seems okay, I don't see the harm in running Momentum...

Yeah, don't run Momentum against Symbiote Supreme.

    Forgetting to use recoup for biohazard void, forgetting to use undying for SS

    Using hardened shell on the electro quest... without the symbiote health synergy. I kinda static shocked myself to death

    Buying up the boosts for a boss, and then forgetting to actually apply the damn things before entering fight. Vision laughed. Spider-Man laughed. Yes, I may have done that more than once...
    Also, when you use Undying to tank the L3s of Vision or SS... and they just dodge back and block until the Indestructible ends, and THEN they use their special.

    Thanks for the heads up, DNA. I'm afraid I've already gone ape with my Boosts. Now I'm rationing them to finish the last 7 passes on Epic. XD.

    Momentum is problematic but Frenzy gives Precision after an L1 as well. The only enhancements I had against SS were Cauterize, Undying, and Frenzy, and after activating an L1 my symbioid died

    Went in against void - didn't read the nodes. Was just going to power through him, whatever, Bunch of nope. got wrecked with biohazard. fight was over in 4 seconds.
  • I ran into the same issue against SS... I was using power start 1 and Frenzy... Fired off my sp1 and I died... I wasn't sure what was going on because I don't use recoil, finally figured out it was the buffs that get activated after using sp1.

    Mine was the first spidey, I didn’t look through the boosts and ended up doing it with a 4* iceman, then I realised there were boosts for him

    What is needed for Electro?

    The obvious symbiote buff to use here is Unknown Enemy, which if memory serves gives defensive ability accuracy reduction. You could also use Cleanse which allows you to drain his power by holding block (i.e. no need to worry about avoiding his SP1 anymore). If want the quick kill and have the strands, go for Cut Deep, Total Carnage, Power Start 1, Frenzy, and Undying. You'll start the fight with one bar of power and also be completely immune to damage for the first five seconds. Parry and use SP1, then attack for however long he's still alive. He might not live long enough for you to make it to the end of your first combo.

    I just used indestructible and got like 5-6 bleeds on him. I think I lost 15% health in the end but that was it. Used indestructible for most fights. I think that's what I used to take out Abomination also. :)

    My son ran through the EQ before I did.

    He was using buff heavy champs (the Sym was only R2) and I kept hearing him yell "PILFERED, What the hell is that???" as well as some words a 12 yr old really shouldn't utter, I think he gets that from his mother because I sure as **** don't swear.

    I couldn't work out what was happening but I heard it a dozen times before he mumbled 'im going outside...."

    Not really registering the connection I took Angela, SW, Crossbones, X23 and Sparky and my evade game is strong.

    Now I know what the **** he was talking about.

    get in with dot heal back buff vs dorm and triggering dexterity on purpose to heal up

    That doesn't work, it's passive degen, not degen debuff. Recoup boost would work on cable's degen, but not dorm's

    I believe it didn't work with abom and sw poisons as well. also it doesn't say "active dot debuff", does it? (it doesn't, I just checked) it's passive, but it's still dot debuff. simple as that. it doesn't correspond description, just like gulk doesn't get face me active from life transfer node even while getting passive dot, or like it's said nowhere in the game that ultron's armor up activates some aar even though I've seen something like that on forum, or magik sp2 power steal mechanics never describer in game in details.

    Poison reduces healing, which is why it doesn't work against abom/SW.

    Forgetting how to generally exist in fights, keep spacing out and losing to 2.1 majik fight, I’m ashamed of myself, you don’t have to be for me

    Mine wasn't event a boss, it was Omega Red. Figured, oh, I'm gonna make him bleed, have to account for Death Field. Easy, I'll use Recoup, right?

    Started fight, didn't bother to track spore stacks, just attacked.

    Recoup didn't help.

    I died. :'(

    I had used Cleansed on Emma frost, that was a mistake. Kept her in Diamond form the whole damn fight. I really wish they would allow us to use the boosts in LAB would have been much more enjoyable. As now like many of you Im sure I have 500 strands and nothing to use them on.

    Does recoup counter cables degeneration?

    I went in to fight the Chapter 2 Deadpool thinking ''Heh, Symbiote is a massive a**kicker, how would a simple Deadpool boss require any boosts?''

    I didn't realize how wrong I was and I obviously had to use one revive.
