We need a thread on survival strategies since Firebrand usually dies in one combo. Mostly what I mean is that we should consolidate certain moves in the game that give Firebrand trouble and can spell death for him.
I hope everyone can provide tips on how to keep Firebrand alive with safe approaches, what moves his projectiles lose to, and what moves flat-out beat Bon Voyage. So we can be wary of these moves if our opponents are keen on repeatedly using them in neutral and outside of combos.
So far from my observations, these typical moves beat Firebrand’s Bon Voyage pretty consistently.
Wolverine’s Dive Kick
Trish’s Dive Kick
Doom’s Foot Dive
Spiderman’s Spider Sting (nearly invincible)
Hulk’s Standing H
Zero’s Jumping H
Captain America’s Shield Slash
Morrigan’s Shell Kick (very high priority)
Hawkeyes Jumping H (The bow is a multi-hitting attack that shields Hawkeye’s hurtbox)
Vergil’s Rising Sun
Taskmaster’s Jumping M.
Chris’ Flame Thrower
Skrull’s Meteor Smash.
