Falcon, the most underrated champion.

"To begin the Recon Scan, Dodge back and hold Block for 2 seconds. While Locked on, the opponent's Defensive Ability Accuracy is reduced by 100% for 10 seconds."
This is what I'm talking about. 100% is very reliable. In the past, I used him to shut down MODOK auto block and spider-family auto evade. Now people are crazily frustrated about Iron Man IW auto-block, you don't have to have Killmonger, just need a Falcon to shut down all auto-block.
Addition to that, Falcon's ability can shut down: shock damage from Electro, poisonous touch from Abomination, Arc overload from Ironman-family, Chaos debuff from Scarlett Witch, ... you name it. The only thing it doesn't work is Ant-man's Glancing.
So why people call him trash?

    Mostly because he doesn’t hit hard enough

    I've said the same as @Tranminhbao before. Plus add two seconds if he's Awakened, and two more against science champions (like Modok), and a fairly decent bleed on SP1. Incinerate is useful against champs with good blocking abilities. It removes Perfect Block - not sure if it prevents Parry, although Locked On should do.

    His actual damage is pretty mediocre and he didn't have any good tricks to boost it up; so he looks (and is) pretty weak compared with more recent champions.

    He really should have had a specific synergy with Captain America Infinity War that benefitted him like WS gets boosted up by Killmonger. The only Captain America version who has a synergy with him is Civil Warrior, which is kind of poor planning by Kabam.

    Hopefully they'll update synergies soon...

    The issue is his cooldown after using it. It’s too long in high tier Aw with an aggressive AI to not be able to hit them.

    10-12 seconds is enough to bring down an Ironman IW at 15% health, which is the issue these days.

    you clearly arent in higher tier wars, IMIW on aggression and armor up node would auto block from the start of the fight. With Recon up, there is no autoblock but he still has armor plus falcons noodle arms he isnt going to do enough damage. When recon expires, the cooldown is too long. 10-12 second window to take down 5% health isnt good enough

    You would still 100% time out with a Falcon going up against a high ranked IMIW due to the cooldown of recon. I would rather use a 4 star Black Widow at that point.

    Plus any armor will make IMIW bleed immune nullifying a lot of Falcon's damage from sp1

    Only thing he's good for is giving you that shred of hope thinking you actually got Blade for that second or 2!

    Nope he still sucks...if he works for you great, that's what matters. Good luck and enjoy.
