R5 Venom?

At the moment, I’m stuck on 6.2 sinister with almost no hope left, so I’m thinking of taking venom and just nuking him down. I also have a V5 cosmic gem I could use to rank him up, so that is very nice.

Should I r5 him? Or wait for a CMM, Hype, Corvus

    I want to use my resources next on Nick Fury because I just awakened him and already love his abilities/ play style. His damage output is quite insane

    I don't know man,if you are Ranking him up specifically for sinister fight I don't think its a good idea,agreed he has fury but there's no way he can deal with the regen,and I don't really remember but I think sinister has caustic temper on him and venom is not poison immune.
    Aside from that venom is a solid r5 option,I really hope to pull him as a 5* or 6* soon,he will be going straight to r5,I wouldn't rank him up before fury though

    Venom is a great champ to r5 for a lot of reasons but he won’t be a good option here. I can’t remember if they removed emp modification but if they didn’t he’s going to take massive damage as soon as sinister throws one special. Don’t forget his Sp1 will reflect your own bleeds back to you as well. I’m not saying it’s impossible with him, but it’s going to take a lot of revives to get him down. You also need poison immunity as well if I remember correctly, again I’m not sure if that part was changed or not I’d have to check

    Fury requires cats, and Venom I can use my Variant gem on. So I can do both eventually, but Iso would be lacking. I think Venom would be pretty good for Variant 5 exploration, but I’m not sure how much of endgame content he’ll do

    Yeah, I still need a poison. I said if I could get the fury and just nuke him down, that would Be one option, but I kinda wanna beat that quest. I might not use him for that now that y’all mention it

    Okay since it's a gem I don't think its a bad idea taking him to r5 ATM,but I will suggest getting a better sinister counter before attempting him,6.2 sinister is infamous for being a real pain

    R5 Venom
    R5 Venom yes.
    For Sinister nooo
    His fury is rng, yeah you can swap it with a heavy, but sometimes you just can't roll the buff you need, if he applies bleeds on those heavies and Sinister gets sp1, you'll be dead before you get any damage in. And there's poison

    You can say that again. I’m hoping badly for either an OG Hulk, Abomination or Heimdall to deal with him. OG Hulk with his stun lock, Abom with Red G synergy, and Heimdall to pair up with Mysterio and beat sinister

    I wish I could give you my OG Hulk. I got him for 6.2 completion, he just sits sadly at the bottom of my roster.

    R5 Venom
    WE ARE VENOM

    Seriously though, Venom is amazing. I see no reason to not R5 him. I don't know about 6.2 in particular, but he's definitely worth it for other content.
