Anyone use Venom in BGs?

PolygonPolygon Posts: 3,890 ★★★★★
Just pulled the 7 star and curious on what matters the most and what matters the least in BGs before I rank 2 him. I only run 1 point in deep wounds and I don't have his relic as even a 5 star.

    You honestly don't need anything tho. You just pray rng is in favour.

    If he crits, it deals a lot of damage, he mostly ends the fight in 30-35 seconds. But if you have poor buff rng, you might waste time in heaviesz switching buffs. He is kinda similar to domino and Hyperion.

    Also deep wounds is good but not necessary for Venom.

    Honestly, it's more the right if anything, as captain pointed out.

    I'm lucky I have the awakening and relic, but my advice is put him in your deck, use him in a few matches and see how YOU like him.

    Maxing out deep wounds, or at least having more than one point would be a good idea though.

    Honestly he gets it done regardless of any combo of those or even none of those. He's a pretty fast attacker provided you don't roll physical resistance every time. Even then he's pretty quick

    Oh how I long for the day to get 7* Venom. I already have the Venom relic awakened and r2 just waiting for him. Can't really think of who else would even get that relic. Knull maybe, but I feel you're not relying on his bleeds as much and they're like instant bleed effects.

    This is my favorite venom matchup.


    But it might get you reported. He is a beast.

    I never thought of him giants Kindred, but it makes sense. Thanks.

    @jcphillips7 if you have a gorr or gamora, they can make good use of Venom relic.
    Alternatively, if it's a 6* relic, it goes well with cgr since it helps cgr extend his combo after the huge sp2(only 6* relic loads by the time you launch sp2).

    Did he killed kindred before the degens kicked in? That's sick.

    I've been working on the sp1 dash in so you can counter it and stop his infection or whatever it is. And then you just have to have a special at the end to kill him with. It also helps that in this meta there are a bunch of furies to Om Nom for healing.

    How much do you guys run in DW when you use him in BGs? Have you happened to run both 1/5 and max DW to be able to tell if theres a significant difference?

    I usually always have at least 1 point in dw for assassin so that's what he runs with. I haven't really used him with higher points in dw

    I run with 1 point. It won't worth it, deep wounds help only a small group of Champs so I can rather invest in a mastery that helps lot of Champs like will power he would Be amazing even without deep wounds the relic is more important

    I think I have DW maxed in my bg's masteries but it honestly probably doesn't make a huge difference.

    I haven't changed my bg masteries since the beginning of last season so I can't remember 100%, but it's either 4 or 5 pts.

    Venom is my Fantman counter in BGs. He absolutely destroys that fight.
