With so many characters to farm in Marvel Strike Force, you are definitely wondering which one(s) should you focus on. Which are the best characters / heroes in Marvel Strike Force? Well, this is the exact question that we’re going to answer in today’s article.
We know that it’s difficult to create such a list because of the constant game updates that will make some heroes better, while others will be tuned down. But we need to start somewhere and since there’s no game update incoming (or at least not too soon) we can definitely focus on getting the best characters in the game right now.
We’re going to focus on the ones that are easier to farm since these are the characters you will most likely get, but we’re also going to share some of the better characters that are not easy to farm, but can be unlocked eventually through spending power orbs.
So let’s not waste any time and let’s check out below which are the best characters / heroes in Marvel Strike Force!
Best Characters to Farm
Arena Farming – Quake
She is a great hero to have, dealing massive AOE (area of effect) damage. Also one of the top heroes in the game, so farm her as much as you can because she’s worth it!
Arena Farming – Daredevil
Most people recommend Drax as the second hero to farm in the Arena (if you have shards left after spending them on getting Quake), but I don’t like him as much as a tank and I feel that Daredevil is a better option for the short term and early on.
Daredevil is a hero that most people already have unlocked, which means that you need to farm even more shards to star him up, which isn’t as easy. If you already have him and you’re not entirely satisfied with him, you can go for Drax instead, but there are better Tank options in MSF. But if you don’t have Daredevil yet and you have arena shards left, definitely go for him!
Blitz Farming – Gamora
An extremely good hero, but requires 100 Shards to be unlocked, so you’ll spend a while farming for her. But it’s really worth it as she’s a great damage dealer, gaining extra moves when she finishes off an enemy and dealing tons of damage.
Blitz Farming – Luke Cage
Only if you have shards left and you can afford buying Gamora AND him daily. He is a solid Tank in my opinion with good buffs for the team. I personally prefer him over Drax simply because you start with him and it’s easier to star him up and get him in shape, but he’s not the best tank in the game at the moment.
Raid – None
I don’t really like the options available in the Raid store at the moment, so either save up on some credits to spend when there’s a refresh or get the Orbs instead. You might end up with better shards than what’s offered in the store.
Campaign – Yondu
He was heavily nerfed recently, so he’s not as good as he used to be, but he’s still one great Hero to own in the game thanks to his summoning and AoE abilities. Easy to get as well, since he’s in the first chapter of the Heroes mission. Complete those every day and get him ASAP.
Best Tanks in Marvel Strike Force
Captain America has a great kit, which is both offensive and defensive. He can also taunt enemies, which is an ability that’ll come in handy quite a bit, especially if you have a squishy team.
Kingpin is exactly that – a kingpin. He can summon bodyguards that’ll help protect him and the team, and he can also buff his allies’ DEF (and later on their ATK).
Honorable mention: Hulk
There’s not a lot of love for Hulk because he’s slow and annoying, but he’s a real damage dealing Tank that is great to have in the team. It’s also easy to unlock by completing the achievements, so I’d definitely go for him.
#2: Luke Cage
I prefer him over Drax because he’s faster, he usually survives long enough to be extremely worthy for a spot in the team and, even though he doesn’t cause a ton of damage, he’s extremely useful thanks to its defense up skill.
Best Supports in Marvel Strike Force
The only real healer in the game, she is absolutely amazing when it comes to keeping your characters alive. Her passive healing also helps in the long run. Depending on your play style and type of battle (arena, Blitz, Raid etc), she might be a better choice than Black Widow, who’s usually best for PvP.
With a massive AoE heal, Hand Sorceress makes for an amazing support. She also has quite decent damage, and the heal will later turn into DEF buff for all the allies (plus the mandatory heal).
Honorable Mention: Black Widow
If there were her speed up alone and she would be a great support unit, but she also has stun which is extremely useful in battle. She can be a great unit, until you get something better – or even after, if you pair her up with a couple decent teammates.
Best Attacker in Marvel Strike Force
It’s really difficult to choose a winner here as there are more who work really well, but Gamora is easy to farm and great to have in the team. Her extra attack on a kill make her extremely useful, while her overall stats and power get better and better as you upgrade her. One of my favorite in the game.
Marvel Strike Force best units
This is one of the best units overall – Spider-Man (Symbiote) is a great unit for the Symbiote team, which means that he’s a unit that you shouldn’t overlook.
She has a lot of utility and plenty of flexibility for pretty much any content.
Pure damage dealer with a great passive buff. Many ignore him, but I personally believe that he’s tough as nails. Plus, he’s usually in the squad of most people playing the game, so that’s an extra bonus!
In Dark Dimension 3 she is a true monster. Her kit is perfectly made for that, and if you team her up with Silver Surfer, you’ve got yourself a winner.
If you are a fan of negative effects, she’s the hero you should use – every – single – time! Her Undead Asgardian is also a really powerful unit.
We have already talked about her, one of the best units in terms of crowd control and AoE damage.
Another character we’ve talked about and a great one to have in your team. Mixing AoE damage with extra units, he can prove extremely helpful in the right type of battle.
A great hero to have in the team and close match with the second placed. I personally choose him because of his insane second ability that usually sees you take out an opponent with one shot, but he’s also great overall.
Another great one to have as a fifth man, this guy can turn into a killing machine thanks to his skills. Chains are not always guaranteed, but Thor remains one awesome hero to bring in!
These would be our recommended characters right now. They all pack a great punch and are, for sure, top characters to take into the Arena, the Alliance Raids and in the Campaign missions.
