**RESOLVED ISSUE WITH SIDE QUEST KEYS**
The game team has resolved this issue. Keys will be distributed via in-game messages and the quest timer will be extended.
More information and timeline here.
*This includes currently unclaimable keys as well*
**WINTER OF WOE - BONUS OBJECTIVE POINT**
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

Anyone else get wrecked by UC Kingpin

He absolutely destroyed me. I had to use 8 revives and lots of health pots. Needless to say, I won't be completing this one.

    Friendly tips:
    don’t place debuffs on Kingpin.
    Bait the sp1.
    learn to intercept

    Have fun.

    Dex= fury’s
    10 fury= Allow defender to gain unblockable for 15 seconds

    Alright
    I only did master, however, UC is probably not different
    I believe kingpin can shrug off parry. So try to do many debuffs on him, or else he will shrug them off
    So basically masochism without the regen
    Also, he has unstoppable heavy. So baiting that out won't be any good. I guess a strategy would be to pin him against the wall, bait out l1's, and cycle.
    I was able to solo master with a 5/50 SE Spiderman, so good luck to you!

    Pretty sure they know kingpins abilities not the node
  • lowlevelplayerlowlevelplayer Posts: 4,292 ★★★★★
    i legit used 5/50 NF for that fight LOL. Granted, it was in master, so UC is probably a lot harder.
    Don't get hit, don't use debuffs. Don't do what I did
  • SpideyFunkoSpideyFunko Posts: 21,784 ★★★★★
    Also, if you could nullify the furies that would help you immensely
  • OzFearUsOzFearUs Posts: 242
    Yeah, master wasn't an issue for me but UC wheww. I will give him a few more tries and avoid debuff champs.
  • naikavonnaikavon Posts: 297 ★★★
    I didn't do this but I suppose you could remove the points from dex to not trigger it.

    I just baited sp1, rinse and repeat until he was down. He only goes unblockable for 15 seconds and if you are baiting sp1 that's your in.

    Intercept works too but you don't even need to intercept if you tap into his block and bait sp1.

    I soloed him with Wasp, just intercept and dodge his SP1 or his SP2 if you can do it

    Shrugs off Debuffs (aka Parry) much faster, but that's NOT the way to fight any Kingpin anyways.

    Do same as when he was in AQ...

    (1) Can just hold your block against him hitting you until (either) KP just blindly continues to the end of a 5-hit Combo into your block. In that case, just return fire upon him after his 5th attempted hit.

    -OR- (most likely) he gives up and tries to HEAVY into your block instead. As soon as he starts Heavy, you back up and can then counterattack him when he is done. If done right, doesn’t even qualify as an Evade.

    (2) Save any Evades for when forced to bait out his SP1, very easy to avoid getting hit by that (even without evading) and is also a great chance to counterattack him afterwards.
    Just watch out for Evading too much (watch that icon count under your name).

    Ah yes heavy baiting totally forgot to include that lol. My bad, good call.

    Had a harder time with that Taskmaster.

    Had a harder time with that Taskmaster.

    Agreed. He was annoying
    To the op, I would recommend baiting sp1 in case he goes unblockable. Your parries will either be shrugged off by his abilities or they will expire super quickly, so don't rely on parries
  • SuperiorSymbioteSuperiorSymbiote Posts: 1,862 ★★★★★
    I hate him especially in the kingpin chapter evades like classic Spider-Man
  • doctorbdoctorb Posts: 1,706 ★★★
    I just draw out the heavy, retreat then attack quickly.
  • Colonaut123Colonaut123 Posts: 3,091 ★★★★★
    Yeah he is a pain. Master is alright, so I am going to practice on him. It just boils down to him cooperating and doing SP1. It is going to be harder to bait without Dex.
  • 2nd_slingshot2nd_slingshot Posts: 233
    Best strategy for me is to parry him a few times and let his rage build to about 5. That way he power gains faster and you can just bait and punish his sp1. Also when he's at higher rage, just hitting into his block can push him tons bar of power.

    I actually soloed tm but I did only have 5% health left

    Finished UC yesterday and had no problems whatsoever (0 revives used) even with Red Guardian (maybe because I have an R3 NF Duped lol). So, I may be able to help you. The Kingpin fight becomes a cheese fiesta with any champ once you realize how to play against him. That cheese fiesta tactic is the backdraft intercept. How it works (if you don't know) is you hit him four times, then back off and charge in as soon as he rushes at you and do a five hit combo and back off before he counters. After you are done, he will have one bar of power ( 9 hits = 1 bar of power) and most of the time, will throw his sp1. Wait for his animation to finish (swing and a miss), then go back in, 4 hit combo, back off, charge in, 5 hit combo, bait sp1 (if he refuses to throw it, hit into his block a few times and back off and the pig will throw it but remember to back off when he does or the DOT hurts like hell), rinse and repeat. If you pull it off (and it's not that difficult), you'll notice that nowhere is there a need to parry or use dexterity. I use this with any Kingpin as long as it's UC level difficulty content since the AI is mega aggressive. Note that this tactic may, sometimes, not work as the AI will refuse to charge at you after the 4 hit back off phase. In that case, you have to rely on parry and pray that he doesn't shrug it off or land your hit before he shrugs it off but this trick works almost 90 percent of the time. Try the above tactic, mate. It helped me immensely when I had a hard time with the fat pig when I first started fighting him. Additionally, if you have a champ with a large number of buff effects, like Havok or Sunspot or Fury (though NF is not half as effective as the former two) you will be able to push him out of his rage state and into his overpower state where you can parry him one hundred percent. That works, too. Hope I was able to help.
  • I used domino and massacre for the parries to be longer but that’s not needed just helpful and kept baiting sp1 ( even though it gave him unblockable I just keep repeating) I felt like sometimes he gained more power than normal

    use havok and take his rage to your advantage and deal some good damage my plasma debuff
    I’ve done it with 5*r3 havok. It takes time yes, but it’s fun

    Can I see your squad mate?

    And also whenever reacted with a lol and to the guy that put " I did this with a 5/50 NF LOL" good for you but the point of the forums are to help not to laugh at people. Because I was like this once I couldnt get the first two bosses down and im sure you were the same, so before being insensitive why dont you help him? And the bragging of "I only used 1 revive on red guardian" again hes not asking that hes asking for help stop trying to one up everyone.
