best havok counters?

looking mainly for armor up buffs
I have seen videos of how to fight him with any champ but I still would like a definitive counter to him
rn The only option I have is a r3 5* howard the duck since he has a ton of armor up buffs

ik warlock and doc oc have the armor up buffs
but what else can I use
dont have a warlock and doc oc I don't get yet
but if there are no other decent champs I might as well learn him and r4 him

    As well as reliable or permanent armour up buffs the other option is reliable power drain champs. OG Vision did some good work for me in 6.3 against Havok. Also, if you have him, Havok is one of the best Havok counters.

    Best counter for Havok? Well... Havok! He is immune to plasma.
    other Option is his brother Cyclope.

    If you don't have any (or don't want to rank up any of them) you can use Venom and try build his armor, guillo99 also has an armor up buff, ironmaniw is good or just try with some champs that drain his power.
    Draining his power causes him to lose his plasma buffs and restart from 0, so you just fight him like that.
    good luck!

    IMIW wouldn't work soley in the armor up department. His armors are passive and don't ignore Havoks detonation damage.
    Redskull is a suprisingly good counter.
    Angela too. Dock oc aswell.

    I use Colossus...tons of armour and can tank a lot of blocked hits...one of the best and one of the more easily available options

    funnily enough, one of the best counters is Civil Warrior - he has reliable Armour Up Buffs AND Power Drain :smile:

    Same with red skull lmao
  • Would you be able to share who you have in your roster? Anyone with permanent or frequent Armor Buffs can work, as can anyone who drains Power frequently. They don't even have to drain that much Power, they just have to be able to do it more often than Havok can build up too many Plasma Charges.

    If you have nova, darkhawk with the nova synergy grants darkhawk a permanent armor up buff.

    Admittedly he's not a great champ for anything else but vulture is a great counter. He's got armor buff and power drain.

    If you can do it, stark Spidey may work as well.

    Taskmaster is a perfect counter for Havok. You can’t place more than 10 debuffs on taskmaster. Havok’s detonation happens on the 11th plasma debuff

    Yeah i use Taskmaster to fight Havok too pretty often. But Taskmaster didn't work for the Havok boss on 6.3.3, i still got the plasma detonation and couldn't figure out why, i made a forum post a while ago but no answers...maybe someone who experienced the same problem reads this :)

    what? how? oh that energy resistance in block mode that thing? but he will still take some damage right?
  • xNigxNig Posts: 5,905 ★★★★★
    Oh no.

    Launch your sp2 and you'll power drain with every hit, keeping his plasmas in check.

    Just use civil warrior. He gains armor ups from regular combos and he has powerdrain on sp3 and powerburn on sp2.
