Darkhawk is really, really hard

edited December 6 in Strategy and Tips
Please send me some tips. I’m trying to beat him on master mode. I always go to the monthly master mode and have been beating the master mode EQs with ease, but darkhawk is really, really, really difficult. Help. I’m not even going to complain about how OP he is because that is a joke on the forums at this point. I just need tips. Thanks

    Check out seatins video. It helps

    I did. Didn’t really help for me. It was uncollected, too. And he’s extremely good

    Do you have maxed parry and stupefy?

    Haven’t maxed stupidly. Don’t have the units. Does that help?

    Basically just pay attention to what mode he's in. After his L2 he will always switch to stealth mode. At this point just parry and ML (2 hits) and that's it.

    If you use a special or hit him with a heavy you will force him to switch to his protection mode. At this point he will essentially autoblock all your attacks (and parry you) so only use parry + heavy to push him to his L2 special again or use your L3 which he can't autoblock.

    Rinse and repreat and eventually you will get him down. I found a lot of success with hyperion since I could continue to parry + heavy most of the fight and then just launch L3's.

    Don't try to dodge his L1. As far as I can tell it's unavoidable so just block it. Always try to push him to his L2.

    Start the fight by baiting out his SP2. Then just parry, throw some hits, and back off before your stun wears off.

    Medusa makes the fight extremely easy if you have her. Daredevil won't miss when Darkhawk is in his invisibility phase. Honestly, anyone is pretty good for the fight so long as you just bait the first SP2 immediately and play the invisibility phase safe. It's really not a hard fight. It's just long.

    Lots of people don't know how to play a fight slow or how to not perform a 5 hit combo all the time. The same strategy doesn't work for every fight.

    Thanks man. I’ll try

    Having that maxed let’s you get MLM combo in while he is invisible. Makes it much easier than a MM or LLM

    Watching the videos really help to understand his mechanics, I did just that, and killed him in master with medusa. So if you have her, just armor shatter and you are good to go. Generally speaking bait sp2, parry and do 3 hits then back out when he's in stealth mode, after that, proceed with defeating him. Personally I baited sp1 to avoid his stealth mode
  • A duped medusa is really powerful you have the armour breaks to go with furies.No wonder briant grant and seatin are so far ahead in this game.

    I don’t have Medusa. Any other good counters?
  • Use a duped thor

    He is very good but the skills in that video were basic bait and parry.

    Any champ with good block proficiency and decent damage. Play it safe and slow.
  • Medusa was my mvp for him just armour shatter and hes just an ordinary fight
  • MrBanksMrBanks Posts: 431
    Update: got him down. Pretty easy if I don’t get hit while baiting his SP2 in the first few seconds. That was my only real issue. Sometimes he backed me into the wall for 10 seconds but dex saved me. Cap IW definitely the MVP and his sp2 knocked off 30%+ health when he was out of his phases. Thanks for the advice everyone!

    Corvus. MLMs take quite a bit of health after the armor break stun parry, plus class advantage.
    After that I'd assume you can use the nebula/proxima synergy trick, just haven't gotten around to trying it yet.

    Good job, now let's repeat that 6 times ;)
  • I am doing Master difficulty as well. I just defeated Taskmaster and he was really hard. I don't know if it was the buffet node or his ability to become debuff immune. Can anyone tell me any tips so I can fight him in the future?
  • VulcanMVulcanM Posts: 489
    you got a quake? quake would work fantastically.
  • @VulcanM For Taskmaster? I do have one. 4/40 4 star
  • VulcanMVulcanM Posts: 489
    @XxLoganTDCxX nah sorry, i was asking mrbanks about darkhawk. i actually cant beat taskmaster in uc but i can get him down to 50% with star lord. but some tips are, dont rely on debuffs, and practice intercepting. quake actuslly doesnt work well because he gets debuff immune. also, just for future referrence, depending on your roster, you wont regret r5ing quake.
  • @VulcanM Ok. Thanks!

    For Taskmaster it’s basically about intercepting him and learning how to evade his L1. I did it with a 4/40 SW. Just bring a champ that doesn’t rely heavily on debuffs and get decent at intercepting and evading L1.
  • Ok. Would GR work? I would just not use the bleed. @V1PER1987

    He should be ok. Might be a really long fight though. If you’re confident enough in your intercepting skills heavy hitters like SL or SS still work their damage is just capped. Also I have a good suspicion DV would work if you build up enough loas and haven’t debuffed him before you use L1 but I can’t test.
  • SL? DV?
    @V1PER1987

    @V1PER1987

    Sorry. SL is Star Lord, SS is Stark Spidey, and DV is Doctor Voodoo.

    Take it slow and fight patiently and the fight becomes easy honestly.
