The Boss Fights of Variant 6

SpideyFunkoSpideyFunko Posts: 13,679 ★★★★★
So when Variant 5 came out, I made a post about every boss fight you would encounter. So, with the announcement of Variant 6, I decided to make a similar one. This variant is themed around #Villains, so plan accordingly.

Chapter 1, Quest 1, Something Amiss: Rhino
See last time I predicted how bad each boss was going to be (i failed miserably) but the second time's the charm, right? Right? Honestly, I hope this fight is a bit of a challenge. (It will be for @danielmath) Has high annoyancy potential.

Chapter 1, Quest 2, The Underbelly: Winter Soldier
Unless they put some wack nodes (I’m talking pre buff v3 Magneto level here) on this fight, should hopefully be a walk in the park. Hopefully.

Chapter 2, Quest 1, Get a Clue: Electro
Not again. Please don’t be another V4 Electro (not that I wouldn’t mind, the player base might complain) But like Rhino, high annoyancy potential.

Chapter 2, Quest 2, Corrupted Strength: Drax
Enhanced Fury? Enhanced Bleed? A Miss node? Should also hopefully be easy. (I’m sensing a pattern here)

Chapter 3, Quest 1, Mr. Cage: Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen)
Newly buffed (and renamed) Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen), with his Physical Resistance and Purify mechanics, takes the stage for the penultimate boss fight. Expect a decent challenge and maybe some revives.

Chapter 3, Quest 2, Fight at Joe’s: Joe Fixit
Unblockable sp1 and special 1 bias anyone? No? This could be really easy, or really bad. I’m expecting something akin to V5 Venom. Either way, beat Joe for those sweet, sweet completion rewards.

Good luck!

    I remember doing this event quest when it first released years ago, and the final Joe Fixit was such a pain. I can’t quite remember why but I got more annoyed at him than I have at anything else in the game 🤨

    I can still hear the howls from the first EQ Fixit boss encounters so long ago...

    I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to "expand" the testing of the root mechanic to variant 6

    Rooted during defender specials. Special 1 bias. Special 1 fully unblockable.

    With true strike and true accuracy. And 100% passive power gain while attacker is rooted. And bloodletting. And degen if attacker is bleed immune.

    Fun times.

    Only have 7 villains at r5 .. Ghost, Doom, KM, Void, Rulk, Mags, MS...

    This will be an interesting one ... people with OR have an advantage vs Electro boss. I still don't have him. I have been using Void for Electros in other content so he will have to do again.

    Second account team is probably gonna be Doom, OR, Sentinel at r5 followed by r4 CB, Venom, Mags depending on the need.

    Let that unblockable sp1 get launched from Joe and i will be ready with my duped r5 Tigra

    Unblockable sp1 from Joe Fixit is totally blockable. It will only be an issue with aspect of war is on him

    There are a few nodes for unblockable specials :smile:

    1. Enhanced sp1 : this is the most commonly used node for unblockable sp1s throughout the game. That node will only make his head butt unblockable. All the bullets are blockable.

    2. All specials are unblockable : the whole sp1 is unblockable. Don't think Kabam will use that one.
    3. Aspect of war: same as 2 above.
