Each boss battle is different in the Facebook game Marvel: Avengers Alliance. Some are fun and exciting. Some are frustrating and long. A good guide can help you find the former and ease the pain of the latter. Assuming you always face bosses and mini-bosses together in a single battle, the following guide will help you defeat each of the season 2 chapter 2 boss battles in Marvel: Avengers Alliance.
Mission 1 – Living Pharaoh / Crimson Dynamo – Nonlethal Stun Baton – The biggest headache in this fight is probably the infiltrator minion that accompanies the two bosses. She can apply bleeding to all heroes and almost certainly will. She would be a priority target if it weren’t for Living Pharaoh. There is a good chance he will spend most of his actions during the first two rounds transforming into his secondary form. Interrupt this by taking him out during those first two rounds. This will require serious focus fire, but Dynamo and the minion are small enough threats that you can afford to do it. It helps if you bring a hero that has multiple actions, like Omega Sentinel, or can grant multiple actions, like Cable. Alternately, just bring a heavy hitter that isn’t a bruiser. Once the Pharaoh is gone, deal with the other two at your leisure. You will need to remove all bleeding stacks from your team before fighting the minion, but there are plenty of items that can do that. The stun baton is a great item and definitely worth farming this mission for.
Mission 2 – Abomination / Boomerang – Ceramic Knife – Two birding this fight is actually easier than facing each boss alone, because in the two bird setup there is no kunoichi minion. Have X-23 focus on Boomerang while a blaster on your team attacks Abomination. Preferably this blaster is Havok who can use Plasma Spheres to debuff the enemies and put exhaustion on Boomerang. If not, just make sure someone on your team can apply either exhaustion or generalized to Boomerang. This isn’t a particularly tough fight, but watch out for bleeding against anyone other than X-23. That can take out a hero quickly. The ceramic knife is a nice prize and the battle is easy enough that it is worth repeating in order to get that prize.
Mission 3 – Titanium Man / Nitro – Gauntlet – Vision is an awful hero with almost no redeeming qualities. Thankfully, there are no tacticians in this fight to make him worse. Unfortunately, there is a scrapper that will keep him from switching to infiltrator mode and prevent his damage from building up. You are probably best just using him to use items during the fight. Compose the rest of your team of a blaster and a tactician. Rescue is a particularly good choice because she can put shields on the whole team to protect from Nitro and disable the scrapper, allowing Vision to switch to infiltrator mode. Titanium Man will put a lot of ongoing damage on your team, but he won’t deal a lot of direct damage. Deal with Nitro first, who can finish off a hero before you know that hero is in danger, then take out the other two any way you can. This battle isn’t too hard, but it is always long and the gauntlet is average at best. It really isn’t worth beating any more times than you have to.
Mission 4 – Viper / Arnim Zola / Baron Zemo – Slingshot – All three bosses have counterattacks. Use Skirmish Scramble every round to counter that. If Wasp starts to run low on stamina, have another hero use an item on her to restore it. Despite her mediocre powers, she is actually the hero of this battle. You might as well bring a tactician and a scrapper as your last two characters. They will help you tear through the bosses quickly. With Wasp holding down the fort, just have the other two characters focus on their natural prey and you should be down to just Zemo quickly, who may also be defeated if he attacked Wasp too often. The slingshot isn’t that impressive an item, but the battle is so easy that it is worth farming just for command points anyway.
Mission 4 Epic – Red Skull – 500 GW Power Supply – Hank Pym is not only a waste of a good hero slot, but he is actually a major liability. If you manage to keep him alive for three rounds he can actually deal quite impressive damage, but that is not as easily done as said. If you want any chance in this battle bring at least one scrapper and possibly two, though an infiltrator is probably a better choice. Take out the infiltrator minions as fast as you can. If you have the ability to put off-balance on them, do it. Once it is down to just you and Red Skull, there is no easy strategy. He can remove status effects from your team and himself. Your best bet is to simply use heroes who have high damage without building up and use items as needed. The only real reason to repeat this fight is because it is worth command points and the battle before it is so easy.
Mission 5 – The Hood / Hydro Man – Depletor – Both bosses are frustrating and the team up here is awful. Luke Cage is almost universally considered the worst hero in the game. Thankfully he has an advantage against The Hood and will have true strike when the hood starts using his evasion tricks. Bring two blasters for your other two heroes and take out Hydro Man as quickly as possible. Don’t bother with bleeding damage, not that many blasters have it. The blaster version of Thor is particularly good here if you have him. Once Hydro Man is defeated, The Hood isn’t that hard and even Cage is powerful enough to take him out. The depletor deals excellent damage for a low stamina cost. If you don’t already have a high damage single target weapon or need to upgrade your current one, farm for this weapon.
Mission 6 – Living Monolith / Avalanche / Toad – Multishot SMG – Toad has a built in counter attack and Avalanche gives everyone a counter attack. If you have Valkyrie, use her and solve both problems. If you don’t, use a scrapper and a bruiser for this fight. Alongside Scarlet Witch, that team should win without much difficulty. Make sure to use Hex Spheres in the first round and try to keep it up as much as possible. Toad should be your first priority, only because he applies the nastiest status effects. Take out Avalanche last. He really isn’t that dangerous and he’ll keep buffing your bruiser. This is an easy fight and the weapon is reasonably good, so you might as well farm it.
Mission 6 Epic – Sugar Man – Revolt 4 – The only thing that keeps this fight from being completely annoying is that Sugar Man has a tendency of attacking his own allies. Scarlet Witch is good, but it will take her a few rounds to take out the bruiser minions, because she has to start the battle with Hex Spheres. Due to this, a scrapper isn’t particularly good unless the hero has additional classes it can change to, like Omega Sentinel or Punisher. If you have a blaster variant of Cyclops, he is a good choice for this battle, but don’t bring any tacticians. Take out the minions first, mostly because you have to, and then focus on Sugar Man. He might re-summon minions, so be ready for a long battle. If you have a chance to nail him with a big attack, do it. You may not get a lot of chances in this battle. This is a very frustrating battle with a lousy boss drop, so there is almost no reason to do it more often than you have to.
