Decent Sinister counters

Midnite93Midnite93 Posts: 1,542 ★★★
I haven’t really fought Sinister very much and have found that Sinister heals up whenever Ghost and Corvus Crits. So what kind of champs will be a decent option for sinister whenever I face him as a boss in the future?

    Any heal block champ
    Ones that stack debuffs ( not DOT ones since he can transfer them to you with his sp1)+dispare
    Low crit rate champs

    Thanks @SquishyjrThe_4TH I made a blunder using Ghost and Corvus for that Sinister boss in chapter 2 of this UC

    Domino does well (especially with rhulk) blade (GR) can be a bit risky with transferring bleeds back to you on sp1’s but he is who I used originally. Otherwise heal block champs like AA. If you want a little longer fight, crossbones doesn’t crit so no regen. Not saying these are the BEST but I don’t have a real deep roster so it’s what I’ve used. Maybe help you a bit...

    IW Cap with the right team composition. Haven't met a Sinister yet I couldn't demolish with Cap. Other good options off the top of my head are Gulk, AA, and Shulk

    Void and awakened CapIW are great against him. Inflicted ebuffs cannot be reflected back onto neither. However it is CRUCIAL if you have despair mastery and preferably CapIW's Science, tech and cosmic synergy to apply debuffs and actually reverse Mr.S healing.

    I used quake

    Quake is the MVP if you’re comfortable with her, I used her for the UC and also 6.2 Sinister bosses. Sentinel is fantastic as well. But really any heal block champ can get the job done pretty well. Champs capable of heal reversal work too, but don’t expect his healing to actually be reversed because he is immune to that, so it’s just an indirect heal block.

    Any heal block or heal reversal champ works. Domino is also surprisingly useful if you can get a crit bleed and not get it reflected back. CB and Quake are also good counters.

    Original Vision, Gulk and Void work well.

    You can't reverse his healing just negate it. Its in his description

    Sentinel.

    Quake, Sentinel, Void, CapIW with a tech champ, OG Vision are very common options Darkhawk after the SP3 will probably wreck him as well, I used Domino with Rulk and Massacre and spammed heavies when he first came out and that worked fine. Also I have a unorthodox suggestion, Red Hulk. When he is at 10 charges, the energy damage is great and even when you crit, Sinister cannot regen that portion of the health he lost.

    Thanks everyone

    The most unorthodox method I can think of is using Sinister's own mechanics against him. Heimdall+ Guillotine + AA (awakened) + Psylocke to give you permanent precision buff. Spam Guillotine's special 2 let him eat crit. If you get knocked out, at least you have AA who will finish the job. Psylocke is there for power gain so you can spam special 2's easier

    @DragonsniperRhQ you can’t reverse Sinisters regeneration

    Just for fun I use shehulk, she for ton of utility with that rework. Her as sp2 basically reverts heal a little, but also with sp1 bias and taunts she just wrecks him. Also like to use rulk for sinister, at 10 charges his extra damage outperforms regen, plus be crits not that often

    It can't be reduced below 0 afaik, but you can stop his regen (basically same as heal block)

    Void
  • I usually end up using Void or Sentinel. I usually spend a bit of time focusing on building Sentinel's Analysis early when I can; once the Analysis is maxed, Sentinel's SP1 can apply Heal Block through blocks and those Heal Blocks will last longer.

    Thank you people now I will be able to fight him better now that I got some idea on how to take him on

    Sentinel is a good option and Darkhawk and Doc Oc are also very good options. Doc Oc can apply heal block with parries and do it permanently with L3. You can also place heal block, heavy, parry, heavy to constantly place heal block on him while “detonating” the heal block breakthrough for some extra damage that he can’t regen.

    Blade with GR synergy. Fight as stun immune, use sp2s only. Bleeds don’t last long enough for him to transfer them to you.

    I suppose if you have a high enough Crossbones, he would work since he doesn't crit.
  • WardenZeroWardenZero Posts: 383 ★★
    Actually this might be the only use for Civil Warrior. Heal blocks on heavy and power drains, plus has class advantage. Might work.
  • bamabbbamabb Posts: 14
    What about Redskull? Haven’t tried it but he can keep heal block going pretty much constantly with his heavy. And he has some power control.

    Ghulk spam sp1 case solved
  • MorbidAngleMorbidAngle Posts: 298
    Vulture's thermal feedback and low crit chance was one of the many interesting things I've tried.
  • JohnLocke117JohnLocke117 Posts: 129 ★★
    I use Carnage with all Furies. Crazy damage, almost no crits. Demolishes him straight up.

    Without stupid nodes you can beat him using anyone.
