Chapter 6: Cyborg
Basic Tips & Recommended Attacks
Cyborg loves playing keep-away. Hi ranged attacks can land anywhere on the screen, and he comes equipped with a grapple ability that’ll place him in either corner of the screen – not to mention his disruptor that sends opponents flying back. Cyborg isn’t the easiest fighter to play as, thanks to his retreat tactics and not-too impressive ranged damage output, but use all his powers in conjunction and he can kick butt.
Repair Circuit (Character Power): Hold down the power button to restore Cyborg’s health. It isn’t as rapid as it implies, but if you constantly use after knocking back opponents or retreating, you’ll be regaining a significant amount of health.
Nova Blaster (Special): Cyborg’s basic ranged special.
Power Fist (Special): A powerful launcher that can catch opponents a few steps off from Cyborg. Transition into Target Acquired or Nova Blaster to keep them bouncing.
Sonic Disruptor (Special): A simple way to send your enemies flying back. Great for getting melee fighters off Cyborg.
Humanity (Combo): A simple powerful combo that will send opponents flying back.
Lost Faith: Another powerful blow-back combo. Even when blocked, Cyborg will be able to continue to attack unphased.
Welcome back Deathstroke. Remember all of Cyborg’s abilities to escape close-range encounters? Don’t use them here. Deathstroke’s ranged game is much stronger than Cyborg’s, there’s no winning in playing it his way. Instead, jump in close and unleash combos.
Deathstroke can’t rip apart the landscape, but Cyborg can. Use your stage hazard advantage to knock Deathstroke around, but don’t stay away for too long.
Use Humanity, Lost Faith, and give the Techno Tackle a shot – just remember, Techno Tackle is best when combined with Meter Burn.
VS Lex Luthor
It’s robot vs. robot in the fight against Lex Luthor, who has his own set of Cyborg-like moves. Lex can shield himself from harm, fire lasers from the sky, and suck enemies in close instead of pushing them away.
Like Deathstroke, you’ll want to fight up close. Use combo attacks like before, especially those with a low or light strike to start off – you’re almost guaranteed to beat Lex Luthor to the punch with any of those.
Lex loves to take control of the battlefield – he’ll summon drones that fire tiny, weak projectiles, drop mines, and basically force you to back off until you’re in his missile or laser range.
The Nova Blaster is very effective here. When he makes you run, use it to keep the armored man interrupted.
Otherwise, fight it out up-close where Cyborg’s improved speed will keep him winning.
Finally, this fight allows Cyborg to use his best functions. Catwoman’s ranged game is weak, she can only pull opponents in close with her whip.
When she gets in close, hit her with Humanity or Lost Faith, then blow her back with Sonic Disruptor. If it looks like she’s about to pummel Cyborg, break free and retreat with a back or forward grapple, then answer with Nova Blaster.
Cyborg’s super strength will help here too. Use the fixtures to the left, or the floating devices over head to easily lay more damage on Catwoman.
Don’t let Catwoman build her combo meter! Every time she lands several hits in a row, she’ll build her combo, which she can unleash as one powerful attack up close. Interrupt her combo meter with Nova Blaster, or any other attack to avoid the cat’s claws.
This is a mirror match, so you already know all your opponent’s moves. Don’t let him use the stage hazards here – they’ll be destroyed if you use them yourself. Easy, and fun!
The AI Cyborg is quick on the trigger, and he’ll use his Meter Burn abilities often. Get in close and use light combo attacks to weaken him, but be prepared for his Power Fist, which he’ll likely use with an added Sonic Disruptor or Meter Burn Nova Blast.
Otherwise, fight aggressively. The AI won’t block much, and it won’t punish you for making mistakes – go in and go all out.
