Is Hawkeye worth rank 4 as a 5 star

I have a duped 5 star hawk eye at rank 2 I have enough resources to take him to rank 4. He will be my first rank 4 5 star as my 5 star luck is not great. Should I take him to up or use my catalyst on other champs .

    Tbh I’d prob keep him as rank 3. Wait until your next 5 star, and if it’s not anything better then go for it.
    Edit : my bad didn’t see the screenshot. Rank up AA

    No I would not rank him. You would be much better off ranking AA.

    Because he's duped, I'd say yes, R4 worthy. If you only have 4 t2a and are close to another 5* crystal I'd say wait for your next opening. But he's a solid champ.

    AA is great. The Hood is great. Carnage is really good, better awakened. But, yes, Hawkeye is worth r4. Great bleed and power control.

    Archangel is great and all but he's no a game changer when he isn't awakened. I'd still rank him but I wouldn't make him a priority. Hawkeye is great because you can be extremely aggressive due to his power control and he has a pretty respectable amount of bleed. He is a very underrated champ.

    That's a waste of an extra 5k shards IMO.

    Take up AA, being unawakened will not be a huge factor in clearing act 4/act 5 content.

    Yes I have 4/55 HE. He is a good magik or vision substitute

    why arent you ranking up that AA?
  • kfd2010kfd2010 Posts: 423 ★★
    I agree with most people about ranking up AA.

    I think Hawkeye is great, though his awakened ability isn't that huge. Great for power control and even w/o the awakened ability, a good bleed. I have a 5* I need to get around to taking to rank 3, but I wouldn't use any T2a on him.

    Do not R4 Hawkeye over AA. Why are you considering opening featured 5* crystals? Your roster isn't big enough for that in my opinion you should focus on basics at this point.

    The thing that makes Hawkeye decent for an old champ is the power control. You don't need him at R4 for that.

    I have HE at 4/55 and LOVE him in AW. DW I have at level 4 and his bleed is really nice, duped it's nasty. Sp 1 power control is really helpful as well. I find him very underrated. He's far better than his low prestige.

    Archangel to r4, trust me he'll clear more content for you every now and then, very easily. He's been my mvp for event quests and clearing Lanes in act 5, not to mention that he makes farming potions in ROL very easy.

    I have 5* hawk eye at r4 (unduped). His power control is save my day... Also when i fight antman. He is antman killer... Because his sp1 is 100% guarantee bleed antman. And after i got void and rank up void to rank 4. HE and void got a very nice synergy. 15% attack boost for HE and void also got very good synergy. And HE bleed is so nice (500-700 pertick)... And the sp1 is 100% guarantee bleed :D

    But yeahhh... If this is your first r4. Maybe HE is not your priority. You can wait for other champ like domino, corvus, hyperion, aegon etc.

    But... Yeah HE worth for a rank 4. When i duped and have overflow resource. I will rank him 5.

    HE is worth r4.......
    But not over unduped AA. You have AA, that will clear so much content. Dont over think the fact he is not woke.

    Many great responses in this thread, BTW.

    Hawkeye was my first rank 4 5 star. Hes amazing at clearing wars. He destroys hyperion and mordo, pretty much anyone with power gain that can bleed. You can't go wrong with him. I also have a maxed out scarlet witch who boosts power gain so that is helpful as well.

    My first R4. Absolutely worth it. I have several now, even sitting on 9 t2a, but his power control and bleed are both very useful.

    Unduped AA is garbage. No ability reduction on neurotoxins. You will survive most fights with HE. This game is catering now to power control champs

    I have AA at r3 and he has been r3 since long before I got mutant from the 5* awakening crystal on Christmas day. Everyone is right in saying you should be ranking him. Even unduped, he is awesome, the dupe only adds a little to the awesome. Not really much difference, tbh.

    As for your original question, HELL YES. Hawkeye is worth R4, especially duped. Power control champs are extremely valuable and it seems there are way to few of them in the game. And in addition to some of the easiest and most reliable power control in the game Hawkeye also has some decent bleeds. Since you were lucky enough to awaken him, one of those bleeds per fight has a chance to become a Hemorhage, for extreme bleeding.

    Rank up both Hawkeye AND Archangel at your nearest opportunity. With regards to the rest of your 5* roster, I hope your 5* luck gets better.

    Oh and some more advise, dont waste your shards on featured. Every god tier 5* I have ive gotten from a basic. I couldn't imagine flushing an extra 5k shards down the toilet by pulling trash from a featured.
