This thread is the designated place to discuss what characters you believe go best with Chris, or which characters can best use Chris as an anchor or assist.
First of all, let me say that my experience with Marvel 3 is just as limited as yours. However, unless this game turns out to be drastically different strategy-wise from MvC 2, I think it’s pretty safe to start by covering his weaknesses.
In the matches I’ve played, I’ve been able to keep moderate control of the ground game with Machine Gun, Mines, Magnum, and jump back + Shotgun. But Chris can’t really occupy the top half of the screen with projectiles, so I figure that’s the first thing we can work on.
Right now, my team is Chris/Spencer/Chun.
Spencer’s B assist (Wire Grip Slant Shot) shoots his grapple arm at an upwards angle and will catch most people in the air far away from you. On contact, you can dash forward into a combo.
Chun is on my team because her Y assist (Lightning Legs) is awesome regardless of what team she’s on. But I’ll be honest, this has little to do with Chris. I’m just using her as a beginner, and I’m certainly open for someone else taking this spot.
Let the discussion begin… What are Chris’s major weakness that his teammates can address? And what are your first ideas for teams that center around Chris?
