i’m going for uncollected and i’ve gotten to 5.2.4 and this is my first time encountering masochism. i’ve noticed that the difficulty seems to have increased significantly, i breezed through the previous chapters of act 5 but masochism is really bothering me.

i’m thinking of taking path a with optimism and pessimism. does anyone have any advice to fight on masochism or any advice for specific champs? here are my top champs:

my usual roster is void, magik, starky, domino, red hulk. i’m planning on switching out one of them for ultron for caltrops. any roster advice and general advice to get through 5.2.4 without too many revives?

    5.2.4 was the first major roadblock for people becoming uncollected so dont get discouraged. Ive come to find out Sparky suck against masochism because his taunts count as debuffs which is annoying. This chapter is a rough one so just plan to spend units and revives.

    Void is a big help.
    When you’re about to aply one of your debuffs go for the parry to make sure they stick, that should reverse the healing.
    Red hulk is also great because he doesn’t apply debuffs. Sparky and hype can usually out damage masochism. You will have to spend units and revives tho, at your level a perfect run is not doable

    Hard hitters that don’t cause debuff damage. Red Hulk is great. Hyperion and sparky both great choices.

    Sparky was the main reason how I got through it.i have him at 4/55 dupped and he helped soo much with that high amount of attack.

    If you can get Sabertooth paired with either Killmonger or OG Black Panther, Machoism will be completely shut down.

    thanks, i don’t expect to get through this without at least a few revives, i’m not that good of a fighter.

    is ultron good as my bleed immune for storm’s caltrops or should i rank up nebula/dormammu? which 5 would you suggest be my team? my usual team was completely wiped out by the time i was halfway through on my first try.

    Ultron is fine for Storm. Plus if you get hit the regen helps out

    Saber tooth and Kilmonger for their synergy which shuts masochism down.

    To be frank, aside from the collector himself, 5.2.4 was the chapter i spent the most units on for uncollected run. Void can work, but you must play extremely well and around the masochism timer, or voids constant debuffs are just gonna keep healing your opponent. As others have suggested, if you have a decently leveled sabertooth + Killmonger, they will definitely help your path.
