    I use my 5/50 SW. Intercept and nullify the cosmic rod. Then I just fight normal untill it comes back. Rinse and repeat

    oh so he won't go unstoppable and stuff until he doesn't have cosmic rod? thats good to know
    I love my scarlet I will try to do that then
    my only option till now was keep using she hulk heavy to stop him from going unstoppable

    You have to get lucky on the parry. He can resist 60% of the time. Or have a specific champion who counters through nullify.

    I feel like he’s a bit of bs champion since you need rng or a very specific group of champions to counter.

    IF I nullify the cosmic rod would he still be able to resist parry 60% time?

    Try out she hulk and spidergwen to remove the unstoppable

    i will try though this one says uncollected too lol
    I will watch for tips it gives for a normal annihilus fight
  • ReferenceReference Posts: 550 ★★
    Except Venom, use all your top mystic champ, no parry, avoid dash back and keep intercept. That’s my approach.
    (Disclaimer: out of all fights, one fight I used 4* blade and one fight I used 5* hype)

    Personally I like quake. Just quake and bake him. Works for me anyway.

    haven't learned her at all since I only have a 4star anyway
    I prefer to phase through everything as I have a ghost at r4 5*

    anyway annihilus armor breaks so NO to ghost

    Blade with GR synergy works well against him

    oh yeah thanks I guess I should just go for a holy trinity + scarlet + she hulk for killing him off in uc this month should be good enough

    Annihilus has the "control" as long as he has the Control Rod buff active. With that, he will get Unstoppable every time you dash back with a Stifle debuff on you (you get stifle debuffs if he hits your block, among other).
    Also, every time you nullify a buff, Control Rod will be the first to go. Without that, he's just a basic fight.
    So for counters, Magik and GR (with Blade) will do great.
    It's possible that Iron Fist works ok for him too (he can nullify buffs with the heavy attack) but I haven't tried him.
    I just play a bit more defensive against him, and smack his face with my Hyperion :smile:

    Either any nullify champ to remove the Cosmic rod, which is what keeps you from being able to consistently parry, or what I do, which is dodge his medium and immediately counter with a light. He lunges really far, so you can counter him consistently, provided that, of course, Epstein didn't kill himself.

    Having just a 4 star Quake is not an excuse for not to learn her.



    Hope that video of my 4 star Quake vs Epic Human Torch motivates you to learn her buddy!

    Well no I didn't mean I was not learning her because she is a 4* just not motivation enough
    I have seen lots of videos quake doing a lot don't think I am not impressed by her
    I try her style everytime I play arena with her I am getting good not absolutely the best but I don't think I will be able to use her I just don't trust her enough

    He goes Unstoppable if you dash back with Stifles on you. If the Stifles don't stick, then he won't go Unstoppable. He inflicts Stifles and Armour Break on hits, even through a block.

    Skill champs like Kingpin, Taskmaster and Agent Venom can therefore be very effective. Just hold block until Kingpin goes into Overpower; or Taskmaster becomes debuff immune; or rely on RNG with Agent Venom. Kingpin is my choice. He's enormously fun against Annihilus.

    Alternately, Stifles won't last long enough for Rogue or Groot (or Blade, at high Power levels) to worry about much; so they'd work, too.

    From my experience she’s the hardest to play in arena, they delay their combos so you can’t evade at the right time easily

    You can use cap iw to parry him easily, even 4* duped max cap iw would do the job.

    I took off more than half the health of the UC Annihilus with a 4* R3 Antman by intercepting like a madman and hoping glancing took care of any decent hits I copped.


    I'm not sure how I did it and I don't think I'd ever be able to do it again

    One great thing about Annihilus is that his first medium dash attack can easily be intercepted by a light attack by almost any champions.

    Just make sure you only start to dash back when he dashes in.
    Earlier than window would high likely cost your life.
