Venom rank up?

I’ve had 5* venom for a while, and have been debating whether to take him up or not. I’ve already done variant 2 100%, so how useful is he outside of that content? Should I take him to r4? Explanation would be appreciated.

    I've R5 mine unawakened and really like him, obviously not the best cosmic but he hits hard, strips buffs what's not to like?

    I only have him as maxed out 4*, wish I had him as a 5*
    One of his greatest assets is that he is immune to "Spider Verse Hero's" passive evades.
    Also when the opponent is at 18% health or below he gains a true strike buff, and his special moves are unlockable.

    Yeah he is quite versatile. So he doesn’t need his awakened ability either?

    Not really.

    What champions did you bring to Variant 2?

    All the awakened ability does is give you a chance to proc another buff at the start of the fight. Not needed.

    I have mine R4 and would love to R5 him sometime...

    Venom seems to be really good against many particularly annoying defenders. Besides turning off Spiderverse passive evades, the true strike you mention is especially good as an IMIW counter (since by the time he gets to his low health autoblock phase Venom is in true strike mode). And then one of his buffs is an armor up buff which makes him immune to Havok's detonations if you proc it or heavy spam reset into it. His SP1 nullifies buffs which makes him useful against defenders like The Champion, Medusa, and Hyperion. I also like using him against BPCW. And he heals when he nullifies a buff. So finding yourself on a path with Aegon or anything else that keeps triggering a lot of buffs is like Christmas.

    I’ve also noticed his armour break to be very useful against Emma and killmonger aswell. I’ve also got a r4 2015 cosmic, and his utility mixed with damage is tempting me.

    No regrets taking my 5 star Venom to rank 5. He's very useful, has interesting abilities and can do some nice damage. I use him for questing and in AW attack to deal with any annoying spiders, Havok (hoping you get lucky with armour up), Thing (works well due to bleeds), Hyperion, Medusa (makes stealing her buffs a fun time), and anyone else who gets buffs that you can turn into your own regen. I also use him to farm potions in RTTL - team him up with a 5* and 4* Miles Morales (+18% attack), an Electro (for crits), and AA for some quick fights.

    Venom was my latest 5* r5...one of my favorite champs to play.

    I have him as a rank 4. Enjoy playing him, very satisfying animations and movements. Worth a rank 5 if you dont have any else superior

    Is he still this helpful in questing? That’s more my focus.

    He's great. I have a tough time finding reasons to not bring him along when questing. The only downside he really has is against anything that punishes you for having a lot of buffs (ie. Spite).

    Fun to use with smooth moveset, great bleed, can regen, kills spiders easily, and the true strike near the end of fights.
