Marvel Strike Force Raids have been a consistent staple of Scopely’s turn-based phenomenon. Over time, it has become obvious that Raids are crucial in ranking up characters’ abilities and overall progression through the game.
Due to the importance of Marvel Strike Force Raids, there are designated toon lineups that specialize in providing the best results during your Raid. Now you may be asking which Raid Teams are the best to use? Don’t worry, I have broken down which squads to use and why!
Other Strike Forcers may have some disagreement with this choice, but the stats and synergies the team has to offer proves itself as a reliable choice. The designated lineup you should have is (front to back):
- Ms. Marvel
- Squirrel Girl
- America Chavez
- Miles Morales
- Kate Bishop
Ms. Marvel is given a 50% chance to receive an Assist Now from one of her Young Avenger allies. When one of her Young Avenger teammates drops below 50% health, she automatically Taunts, focusing the enemy attacks on her. When she Taunts, she also gives her allies +2 Deflect. Lastly, Ms. Marvel distributes +25 Armor to all “YA” (Young Avenger) partners.
Squirrel Girl is the healer of the team. When a YA toon drops below 50% health, Squirrel Girl gives Young Avengers 10% of their max health back, in addition to clearing two negative effects. Squirrel Girl’s ultimate ability, Unbeatable, offers +10 Drain and +10 Max health to all Young Avenger allies.
Young Avengers is a fun and newer team added to the game. They have an abundance of synergy to play off each other and can easily get you a “dub” in Marvel Strike Force Raids.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy is probably considered an underdog to be labeled as one of the best teams to use in Marvel Strike Force Raids. Frankly, I have found them immensely useful in any node I had to face off against in Raids. This team consists of:
The Guardians of the Galaxy team begins with Peter Quill aka “Starlord“. Quill grants his Guardian allies +30 Damage on all attacks and +20 Speed.
Next up are Rocket and Groot who complement each other nicely. Rocket receives an Assist Now from Groot on basic attacks and Groot will then apply Taunt to himself after.
Fourth in this Marvel Strike Force Raid Team is Drax who proves useful due to the high levels of damage he can withstand. He also applies Taunt to himself at the beginning of every single match.
Lastly, the main focus of this team is Mantis. Mantis grants +5 health to each Guardian ally, and specifically during Raids, she applies Regeneration to all of her allies. When also in Raids, Mantis can transfer 1-2 negative effects from herself to her designated target, and there is also a 75% chance she will clear two positive effects from the same target.
Guardians of the Galaxy is a solid team to use. However, there may be some controversy considering Scopely has added an Infinity Watch lineup to the game, which includes Gamora as well.
As a result, they are not everyone’s first choice, but they are a team that will not let you down. Personally, I wouldn’t invest all of my building materials in this lineup, but I also would not be so quick to sideline them and forget about them.
The Mutant Villains team does not offer much in regards to in-game healing, but they do offer massive amounts of damage and other buffs. The team should be constructed of (front to back):
- Silver Samurai
- Mister Sinister
- Emma Frost
Mister Sinister can clear Heal Block, and apply Regeneration to the two most injured allies while granting himself Offense Up. Sinister can also spread his positive effects to three other random Mutant Villain allies.
Next to mention is Emma Frost. Similar to the Guardians of the Galaxy, Emma is a crucial point to this team in Raids, due to the buffs she has to offer. Frost can apply Immunity to two random Mutant Villain allies while applying Slow to three random enemies.
Stryfe is the tank of this toon squad. Stryfe is not really known to put out high levels of damage, but he is more of a defensive anchor for your Mutant Villain team. Stryfe’s highlight is when he’s paired with Mister Sinister and can steal four positive effects from his primary target and transfer them to Mister Sinister. On his passive, Grandeur, he fills teammates and his Speed Bar with an additional +10% and +10% Focus.
