    Why is he so high up in “Top Champion” videos? Kingslayer MCOC puts him at number 4 and KT1 at number 6.

    He demolishes mutants like crazy, I completely get that but that’s around 1/6th of the roster. Magneto demolishes around 1/3rd of the roster but is nowhere to be seen in top champ lists. I’m not saying Mags should be, but I’m drawing a comparison here.

    Against the rest, Nimrod is average and never amongst the best options.

    I feel like I’m qualified to say this as the owner of a 6*R5 200 sig Nimrod. And yes I do know how to use him:
    - Double medium/parries to build armors in Titan protocol.
    - SP1 with 10 armors or between protocol switch for both energise and energy vulnerability.
    - SP2 with 10 armors or when in eradicate mode.

    Heck I even use the Hulkbuster relic, yet the DPS against non-mutants just seems underwhelming compared to loads of other champs.

    He’s a good champion overall but I honestly don’t see how he’s top 10 in the entire game.



    Because Nimrod is fast enough for BGS, and consistent enough for war unlike a certain red man.

    That said, he is most definitely not top 4, especially in a list with Torch at 11.

    Not overrated. Tank. Anyone that can be shocked he can melt. Was fun in incursions with the armor causes stun buff.

    I could say “We all deserve a 7* Nexus for compensation for all of the bugs in the game” and it’d get 30 disagrees

    I have never found his damage lacking even in non-mutant matchups. He's not gonna KO non-mutant champions with one SP2, but Tech champions aren't really known for this.

    Going to your Magneto comparison: Yes, Magneto can handle 1/3 of champions who are Metal while Nimrod 'handles' 1/6 of champions who are Mutant. But, Magneto against 2/3 of champions who are non-Metal is poor, while Nimrod still does well against 5/6 of champions who are non-Mutant (and within the Non-Mutants, only handles poorly against shock immune).

    Against class disadvantage, since he is pseudo-armor break immune, he isn't hard countered.

    So, Nimrod doesn't have the most eye popping numbers against non-mutants, but his entire kit comes together in a way that makes him still amazing.

    I wouldn't call mags against non-metal champs to be poor. That prowess is still no joke

    Yeah because of the pseudo immunity to armor break as well as decreased Special attack damage, mystics are more reliable in countering Nimrod (besides Galan)

    He has constant power drain which makes him good against mystic defenders even with full md they never reach sp3
