Special Moves

Shoulder Cannon

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Total Hit Adv Block Adv Meter Gain Property
QCF + LP/LK
Light Version
- - - - - - - - - Ground (P/K), air (P)

This move fires a single rocket at the enemy. It takes off a bit more damage than War Machine's Shoulder Cannon and stops projectiles. Crouching move is the same as above, but it goes low. This move will stop some beam supers if if hits your opponent.

Smart Bomb
(4 or 6) + MP + LK
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Total Hit Adv Block Adv Meter Gain Property
- - - - - - - - - Ground/air

This move is the same as War Machine. You can control the range with the joystick. You should use this move so that you can attack from overhead without getting hit with anything. Also, if you super jump over a beam super, you can hit your opponent with this and knock him out of the super. A good follow-up to this move is the knee dive. Use this move a lot, but don't get predictable.

Hyper Combos

Proton Cannon
QCF + PP
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Total Hit Adv Block Adv Meter Gain Property
- - - - - - - - - Ground/air

This move is the same as War Machine's, but instead of a large beam, many missiles fly out of the cannon. The missiles hit high, so they may miss smaller characters completely. It deal more damage than War Machine's Proton Cannon.

War Destroyer
QCF + KK
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Total Hit Adv Block Adv Meter Gain Property
- - - - - - - - - Ground/air

This super is the same as War Machine's War Destroyer, but it does more damage as well. It combos after the launcher, too, and if you're using both War Machines, you'll be spamming this super a lot in Duo Team, since it leads to ridiculously high damage off of chip damage alone, especially when the opponent is trapped between both War Machines.

Team Setups

Double War Machine

Pros Cons
  • You get to play both War Machines
  • They cover each other's weaknesses especially well
  • Disgustingly high damage and health
  • Duo Team setups deal extreme amounts of chip damage
  • Not as effective without Duo Team
  • No one will like you
  • You're not Iron Man so you won't do an infinite

As the name implies, you get to play not War Machine, not Gold War Machine, but both War Machines at the same time! Two top tiers in the same team, what could possibly go wrong? Essentially, you get two characters with very high damage, health, armor, great tools across the board, there's very little the team doesn't have. Them being on the slower side won't matter much, though, because the minute this team is given enough meter to initiate a Team Duo Attack, the player can setup some truly nasty scenarios. These setups, which tend to give almost zero room to escape, can lead to the opponent losing up to 50% of their health off of CHIP DAMAGE. This puts them at a huge life lead, or otherwise make a swift recovery. They still need to attempt to win the rest of the match if it doesn't kill, however.
