    Lol u guys are right. But nearly every champs has metal stuff if u wanna play it that way

  • Not.

    Not all metals are magnetic thou. So I guess the Metal tag is only if the metal they use if magnetic.
    Maybe adamentium isn`t magnetic and thus BPCW does not have the metal tag.

    Magneto is amazing with this new buff if it stays as it is. There is no need to make him even stronger.
    If you look up the metal tag champs there are a lot where magneto might possibly be the best counter for.

    This is just like corvus all over again how, in some way. 90% of all champs should have been avengers because of reasons.

    The tag is fine, And magneto will shred a lot of content with his new buff.

    Adamantium is in the comics a steel alloy with vibranium, hence Magneto could strip Wolverine's adamantium from his bones.

    BPCW uses pure vibranium and cannot be magnetised.

    Cap's shield used to be adamantium but I think it was retconned to pure vibranium.
    Caps sheild used to be a adamantium vibranium alloy. Since the MCU, I only ever see it refered to as pure vibranium now

    I mean come on kabam. Some champions aren’t listed as metal but very clearly use LOTS of metal.

    For example
    1. Blade (Swords and guns)
    2. Corvus glaive (Glaive)
    3. Black Panther CW. (Suit)
    4. Domino (guns)
    5. Magneto (his suit is definitely magnetised seeing as otherwise Magneto could not control it)

    Those were just a few examples of champions that use metal weapons/have metal suits that aren’t classed as metal champions. Just saying. Magneto as of now has a much more limited use then maybe he should have.

    I get what you mean. However not all metals are ferromagnetic. And many argue Magneto can only control ferromagnetic metals. It's commonly debated weather he could control a lead bullet, and many agree he cannot. He can control the weapons firing it, but only bullets made of ferromagnetic metals, och jacketed in a metal like that.

    I guess Blade uses a silver sword, since he slays vampires. I think a solid silver sword might be to brittle though... (correct me if I'm wrong) ...so he probably has a silver coated steel sword.

    Anyway, I'm not sure what corvus´s glaive is made of. Could it be Uru (like stormbringer and Thanos´s sword)? In that case, do we know if it's a ferromagnetic metal?
    And... I guess they have to draw the line somewhere. Most of the champs probably have some little thing made of metal on them, their weapon, belt buckle... or heck... their keys in their pocket. ;)
    Captain, we have a big brain here!

    Yeah I did mean Vibranium. I just made a mistake. Don`t know why I thought BPCW uses adamantium.
    Did see the x-men movies recently maybe that is why it was in my head.

    Forget about them even hulkbuster isn’t tag as metal. 😂🤣😂 I was like WTF.

    I disagree with some but bpcw, he really should he listed as metal.

    Vibranium is in the comics not ferromagnetic. Vision MCU and Ultron are made out of vibranium and should have their Metal tag removed.

    Only iron, cobalt, nickel and some rare earth metals are ferromagnetic. Other metals respond so weakly to magnetism that it is only measurable in a lab. Titanium for instant is used for implants and is unaffected by the magnetic fields of an MRI. Why do you need to remove all metals? Because iron and iron-based alloys are the most commonly used metals, better be safe than sorry.

    Theoretically, iron man and doom should be immune, as they use titanium armour. But in the comics the writers are physics illiterate and perpetuate the misconception all metals = magnetism.

    But to return to OP: he's correct, a lot more Metal tags should be given to skill champions. Guns, swords: they are all made out of steel. Blade I am not sure: it should be a silver sword, or is it steel alloyed with silver?
    Nah, if Vision and Ultron were purely vibranium (instead of vibranium + other metals as components) they would be almost impossible to exist - how are you going to contain the energy they use to power themselves if they're "pure" vibranium?

    Makes sense that all robots except MAYBE sentinel would get dominated by Mags. Sentinel should have a bit of a counter to him without disabling magnetism.

    Yes he is... you cannot 100% trust third party sites


  • Not all "metal-looking skins" in the game are metal in the game

    How is sentinel metal? Weren't they changed to not be affected by magneto

    That was Archangel, a long time ago

    I think he's referring to the X-Men movie where Trask made Sentinels without metal so Magneto couldn't manipulate them. Either way, this game doesn't follow Marvel movies to a tee.
    in the cartoons there were plastics as well.

    I always found it pretty wack that Gwenpool is a metal champion but Blade isn’t.

    Not all metal is magnetic. Aluminum, copper, gold silver for example vibranium may not be.
