    angela counters his plasma explosion thing as she can naturally maintain a very long stack of armor. Champs that can gain armor, preferably permanent, can counter havoc's plasma explosion thing.

    Other than that if you looking for champs that can parry his projectile based attacks, proxima comes to mind.

    Aside from the 2 considerations above, any champ can fight havoc, though champs with guaranteed crits like ghost and corvus are at a slight disadvantage as havoc not only reduces the crit damage by a significant amount, crits also increases his plasma charges which make the plasma explosion thing occur faster.

    Oh yes, it has to be armor up buffs, passive armors dont count. I'm not too sure about ice armor though, other threads discuss this also.

    Cyclops, his brother is immune to all is plasma damage, as havok is equaly immune to all of cyclops energy blast

    Icemans Ice Armor does work vs Havok

    I believe vulture is a good matchup also.

    Maybe would Red Skull work? I know he starts with a bunch of armor ups but not sure if he can maintain them for the length of the fight.

    ... any champ can fight havoc, though champs with guaranteed crits like ghost and corvus are at a slight disadvantage as havoc not only reduces the crit damage by a significant amount, crits also increases his plasma charges which make the plasma explosion thing occur faster.

    Corvus deals true damage so reduction doesn’t work on his crits

    Havok is my Havok counter, second to that I would use Vision or Voodoo; *their regular power drains cause his plasma charges to fall off.

    True damage ignores armor, doesn't do anything for resistances but in the case of Havok he reduces your crit damage rating by 50%.

    Havok reduced Corvus’ crit damage. Your turn?

    Also here is an example of Physical resistance in play. Emma has phys resist in diamond form which reduces the damage.

    I use venom to beat him...just gotta get an armour buff before he can get u with a plasma detonation and it's a normal fight after that
  • FhfjghhggggjfhfjgFhfjghhggggjfhfjg Posts: 2,977 ★★★★
    Cool i guess it's a good thing to fight havok as it makes me dust off my ultron lol
  • Kenny292Kenny292 Posts: 437 ★★
    Voodoo’s a pretty good counter with his even combo sp2 power burn buffs. It can just be kinda wacky to watch the number of charges bounce around like crazy since his specials and power burn deal energy damage, which ends up in him both taking away and giving plasma charges with each hit.

    Ghost, with Wasp and Hood synergy.
    I defeated Havok oneshot on boss node during our last war. I avoided the first plasma explosion by phasing at the right time. I took the second one because a was above 85% health and he was below 10%, so it didn’t matter, I could afford it.
    At the end of the fight, I lost less than 30%
    Critical hits have the damage reduced, but class advantage balance this fact. And ask Havok himself if he felt that the critical hits damage was reduced.

    Cyclops is best against him. 0 damage from plasma charge and special attacks
  • CyberSidheCyberSidhe Posts: 2
    Vision works well for me. Has the class advantage and when you power drain Havok he loses all his plasma charges
  • @Zoranabc201 actually offered an interesting tactic in another thread that I wanted to share here: use the Tech Breakthrough synergy from Captain America (Infinity War). This will make it so that Havok is Power Drained when using a special attack against your tech champs, removing his Plasma Charges every time.

    Sweet thnx @Kabam Zibiit :)

    The answer is venom. Dont over think it. If you dont start with armor up, heavy until you do.

    How about the Havok in Save the Battlerealm ?? Ironman with Mind Stone (Armor Buffs), is he better against that Havok than what CapAmerica and his Stone is ??

    Wouldn't quake work?

    Havok has natural power gain so you’ll have to watch out once he gains enough power for a special.
