Now that Tron, Haggar, and Akuma assists have been nerfed, a lot of people are gonna be on the lookout for a new OP assist character to rely on.
In this thread, let’s speculate on what the “top tier” assists are gonna be from what we’ve seen/played thus far.
So far the top contenders seem to be: Rocket Raccoon Log, Strider’s teleport kick, Iron Fist’s flame kick, Frank West’s shopping cart, and Turnabout mode Phoenix Wright. Doom missile and Gold Shien-ko still seem pretty strong as well.
Are there any other returning assists that might be buffed? Or an new character’s assist that has gone under the radar? Discuss.
