Weapon X Gamplay Disappointment

Weapon X's gameplay has been shown, after years of wanting this Champion, when he's finally in the game, even as a trophy champion...his animations are copy pasted?

He's copy pasted Wolverine. His light and medium attacks are the same as Wolverine's Basic and Boring punching and kicking animations. All his specials are the exact same. The only animation changed is his hard attack. Which is Old Man Logans Hard attack.

Weapon X is deranged. An unhinged monster, lost his mind, out to kill everything. Yet he fights like a normal person in mcoc?

Recycling animations from venom and sabertooth would have been perfect. A new 3rd special similar to sabertooth's or X-23's special would have been perfect as well. Even his 3rd special name and description is different, yet the actual animation is the same one as Wolverine's and Old Man Logans.

Many Champions before had new Animations given to them. Iron fist and doctor strange had very basic boring animations. Almost all the large Champions had the same light, medium and hard attacks. Colossus just got revamped and some of his attack animations are now changed for the better.

Weapon X just seems so lackluster and disappointing.

    He's been in the game for years.

    He's been in the game for years and has been unplayable for years. Then he gets a Revamp and nothing about his animations except his hard hit was changed...that's the point

    I didn't know he was supposed to have different animations. Also, Weapon X IS Wolverine. With mind control.

    He didn't really get a revamp. We never really saw what he could do since he was in the game so early on. Plus back then, he had all the same move sets as wolvie did. Adding abilities is easier than changing animations.

    They will never show Wolverine the respect he deserves.

    He is a trophy champ, what did you expect?

    In today’s news, Logan aka Weapon X got his animations from Logan aka Wolverine and Logan aka Old Man Logan.

    Be more interested in his usefulness. He’s suicide friendly so he’s got one thing going for him already. Maybe you won’t mind his animations if he turns out to be more than trophy trash.

    You got a point, but seriously have you seen his animations? It's ridiculous

    I expect him to have recycled animations from venom and sabertooth to mix up his gameplay. It would have been great

    Old man Logan is the closest to his wolverine actually is. Wolverine doesn't even have his feral senses or berserker rage in mcoc. Along with basic and boring animations. 200 years of mastering fighting styles. "The best there is at what I do" and he fights like a normal person. Look at how much better X-23's animations are compared to wolverine

    They posted about how they "revamped" him a few weeks ago for the spotlight. And we did see his gameplay and he did years ago when we fought him in the contest. He was still garbage. Changing animations is NOT hard. Look at ALL the other champions that had animations changed. Especially since the animations are already animated and just need to be assigned to him. Swapped out really
