ProsEdit

Match-up Strategy
Hotshot Gunner Portrait

vs Icemen Assault Portrait
Assault

The Minigun is stronger than the Assault Rifle. Avoid the Assault's Charge and Bombs and you will usually win the fight. However, if you are far from the Assault it will usually be favorable to retreat do to the fact that his weapon has better range than yours and he is good at dodging Mortars.

This can depend on how close you are to the tank. From afar, he's fodder, but up close, you're better off writng a will, because his jet gun will most likely kill you off before you can do anything. Lay down lead and you should be on top here. Also beware; the Tank's Jet Charge will usually trump your Slam.

Your Minigun does signifigant damage to his Firebase at close to medium range, but if it's been hacked, its better to play it safe using your Mortar Launcher from afar. Keep your distance from him if you don't want a shotgun in your face. Stay alert for his Airstrike ability, as it is instantly lethal if you're caught in its blast radius. If you get stuck by one, you can quickly dive under cover to save yourself.

vs Icemen Assassin Portrait
Assassin

If you see an Assassin running toward you, avoid being grappled by jetting away from her; you can't be grappled while you're in the air. Your minigun will kill her quickly due to her low health. Another thing to try is, if you see a cloaked Assassin coming, Slam them as soon as they're in range.

If one does manage to grapple, but not kill you (this is common, thanks to your armor), use your Slam or Gunner Grapple skills to either send them flying or deal heavy damage.

If you're deployed and she flanks you with a melee weapon, fire your backpack jets with the jump button. She will die before you do. On the other hand, if you see one shooting at you with Shuriken, undeploy and move. Their lack of spread means they can hit stationary targets consistently at range.

The better gunner will have the better gun and the better skill, use the mortar launcher if he's further away.

vs Icemen Sniper Portrait
Sniper

A fully upgraded deploy skill prevents headshots. The Sniper Rifle still does a good deal of damage though, so move if you don't think you can kill him first.

BotsEdit

Match-up Strategy

vs Icemen Slim
Slim

Instant kill from mortars or heavy minigun fire. A Slam is also good for dealing with small clusters of them.

vs Icemen BlackJack
Black Jack

A fully upgraded deploy can dish out more pain against Black Jacks. If caught reloading, a grapple can work in a pinch. The Mortar Launcher is a better choice at medium range against groups. A Slam is also capable of stunning any Black Jacks in the shockwave.

Use your grapple to kill these things with ease. Heavy fire also helps here.

Gun them down before they get a chance to get close enough

Mortars do the trick here, but a Slam can work wonders when you are being swarmed by them. Jet up high then Slam back down.

vs Icemen Gapshot
Gap Shot

Slams, Grapples or Deployed gunner fire. Pick one.

Supressive fire usually takes these things out instantly.

Jackbot XL

Deployed gunner fire is the way around here. Juicing is your only other option. Pancaking the Jackbot can deal some damage.

TurretsEdit

Match-up Strategy

Low level turrets can be shredded by minigun fire, but a level 3 may be more problematic. If you have a range advantage, use the mortar to wreck it.

Your minigun doesn't do much to these, unless you're Juiced. A better idea is to out range them with the mortar.

vs ShaveIce Level 3 concept art

You're already slow, and you're an obvious target when shooting. Using the minigun is fine unless there are other turrets nearby that can hit you. If this is the case, just get to medium range and shell it with mortars.

vs Longshot concept art
Long Shot

At close range, you tear these to bits with either of your weapons. At medium to long range though, they are a threat, especially if you're deployed and don't have line of sight to the turret. If you're taking damage and you don't see any enemies nearby, you're probably being hit by a longshot.
