I was in variant 3 and didn’t realize until after 3 revives on havok that imiw passive armor up doesn’t even stop his detonation. Is this a bug?

    @Championcritic isnt it a bug??? Armor ups are supposed to make you immune to it

    It's not a bug, because the armor up should be an Active Buff, not a Passive Effect (like Killmonger vibranium Armor: he Always takes detonation damage from Havok)

    Why would you even use IMIW on havok? That’s one of the worst match ups any way

    @CFree im actually a girl but thanks for understanding and @Pach its v3 tech champs work best even if I had used starky spidey (which I did) he still died from detonation mind you he had about 230k health that’s as much or more as a war boss

    I was disappointed when I realised his armour ups wouldn’t negate the detonation. But it has its benefits, since they are passive abilities they can’t be nullified and they dont trigger annoying nodes like spite. There’s prob other stuff too.

    Still he’s a bad match up even if the armor ups worked they aren’t up 100% of the time, his basic attacks that are repulser one give him extra plasma, his specials are basically useless against him too

    Funny enough if you want a tech champ that’s a good counter to Havok, Vulture does the job. Warlock is probably the best counter but he’s newer so it’s less likely a lot of players have him. It’s hard to help suggest counters without knowing your roster. If you would like some advice, post your roster and we can try to help. Unless you made it through him.

    Red skull should also be a really good counter to that havok, or havok in general. Permanent armor ups if done right and power control kinda sorta on demand. Didn't try it yet, but I have a 5* red skull I just pulled a few weeks ago that I will probably r3 especially for that encounter.

    I even sent a pic of my own maxed out infinity man so you know I’m not bluffing when I say that he’s a bad match up especially against variant level champs

    Just wanted to add that Og vision is also a good counter if you have him. Spam sp1. Also venom, although not a tech, gains armor up when applying heavies sometimes so he's also a good counter

    If we're extending this to non-tech champs I'd probably take iceman over venom, since iceman is a lot safer.

    And I feel like red skull would actually be a lot less stressful than og vision, since you won't need to worry about plasma management at all. But I did read some people say they did it with og vision, so definitely not trying to invalidate your point lol.

    You could also use cyclops if you absolutely despise yourself.

    Doc Ock works pretty well to. Don't forget cosmic: Venom, Angela, Heimdall,...

    Iceman doesn't work as it is not a real Armor Up.

    That's wrong. His ice armor was seen as an armor up buff the last time I checked.

    Could have been fixed, although I doubt it. You would have probably said something along the lines of "doesn't work anymore".
  • For Iceman, I agree the text is misleading. He has a regular armor up buff, but with a different name and icon for some reason.

    the best is vision, power drain removes the charges.

    I personally used my own Havok against him. No need to worry about armor breaks making him vulnerable when he's permanently immune.

    I was fortunate enough to pull warlock from a featured. He's perfect for havok, rocks his socks.
