You know what is funny. Answers to that question(Getting in with Viper) make up a good portion of the MVSC3 C viper Thread
Here are a couple simple short tips to help you on your way
1.Master Viper’s zoning game
Viper’s zoning game can be cumbersome and awkward for a newcomer but she actually has the tools to keep up with characters who have powerful zoning capabilities.Here are your options
a. Siesmo game
Siesmos are in fact one of the fastest long range moves in the game.
They do have the weakness though of appearing in only a certain portion of the screen and are only good to toss out if you know they are going to hit the opponent.
but if you hit someone with a siesmo ever on block you have options
. You can Super jump forward right after the siesmo and then air dash forward down to travel forward
. you can FADC forward (See gottnoskill’s tutorial on FADCing on his youtube channel
. you can do rapid siesmos
b. Optic Blast
This is handy, a lot more handy than I though it would be
you can mostly use it to hit assists or to hit someoen when a siesmo wont catch
Viper’s defining mechanic
Contary to popular belief these are the best ways to spend meter with viper
a. Ex Siesmo
The Best move in the game hands done
it may cost one meter but it is an invincible reversal move that is safe on block.
Not to mention you can combo after it.
Or if it is blocked you get a free mix up
It is a stupid stupid move and will probably get nerfed someday.
b. EX Thunder Kuckle
This move has loads of durability so it will blow through most projectilies
c.EX Burning Kick
Combo move with some invinciblity
I never use it outside of combos
I will write more later because I have to go wash my car
Bye and good luck
