Ironman Infinity War.... More like Rubber boy from LaLa land. POOR DPS?

I have an awakened maxed out 4* Iron man infinity war, I usually just use him as an AW defender. Ive seen alot of good threads about him and Seatin says great things about him
IS THERE SOMTHING IM MISSING.
I understand the plasma mechanic and have no problem inflicting the plasma debuff. Ive tried a bunch of different strategies and fight styles and he just kinda seems to hit like a pool noodle.
what can i do to up his DPS??
Thanks in advance

    Are u sure u are using imiw and not the regular iron man? I have an awakened 5* at r4 and use him as an attacker all the time. He isnt designed to be a heavy hitter. He has many uses and is a great utility champ. Maybe the 4* version doesnt scale as well as the 5*

    The big damage comes from using a heavy attack to make the plasma debuff

    Plasma passive*
  • Is more due to his utility. Of course, the damage potencial is there in the right match-up and with the right playstyle, but you also have other stuff like armor break, heal block, repulsor attacks, auto-block, bleed/coldsnap immunity, block proficiency etc.

    Dude my r4 5* sig200 is my main dude right now. I use him for everything. The power control saves me from sp3s all the time. Now I dont have to try to bait sp3 I just crush em and they dont get past sp2

    Hello, you could try Double Edge mastery to get a little more out of him for DPS. When duped he always starts off with a armor charge eliminating the bleed. My duped 6* rocks the house!

    Different to many other champs he has no innate way to increase his damage.

    If you want to play him effectively, you need to say goodbye to the idea of him producing big flashy numbers.

    Like others already said he's a utility god. There's much he can do, but probably his greatest feat is his power control, which I would describe as a pseuso powerlock.
    As long as your opponent is suffering from a shock or a plasma a simple m-l-l-l-l playstyle will deny them an sp3.

    That paired with his block proficiency is what really makes him shine. Many can do what he does and even do it a lot quicker.
    But he can do it safely and smoothly.

    I don't know how many fights I started and ended with something like 3% health, and that was with an unawakaned iron man iw mind you.

    Got a 4/55 and a 1/25 version and use for all kinds of stuff. My 1/25 is a solid part of my aw attack team.
