The Gauntlet: Stage 7...

Ok, so this entire tower is a bit difficult, but it seems near-impossible when at stage 7, and just all RNG, like, a LOT of RNG. To complete stage 7, they want you to get to a flawless victory against Sub-Zero & Scorpion, now that alone is pretty difficult, but that's not what feels like all RNG, it's when you go to kill one of the 2 combatants, and they tag the other in with a literally random attack that ruins the flawless, so you have to restart, and try again. And on top of all of this, you have poison gas that is on the ground the entire match that slowly decays your health, so I have no clue if that decaying gas counts as a hit towards your flawless victory or not. I've tried over 30 times, then I let the AI try it for over an hour of repeated restart, after restart, after restart. It's the only tower holding me back. If someone can tell how to beat this or an easier way, please let me know!

Best way I found was with Cassie Cage dont jump or use attacks as the poison gas will do damage just move back or forward but stay as far from sub zero and scorpion as possible and use these consumables, Special Forces Radio as they send nukes do huge damage and knock them back, Takada's Kunai as they knocks them back and does damage, Broken Quiver to stun them on the spot then spam Dual wielding just remember do not get hit in both rounds sub-zero's ice doesn't do damage but just stay away from them as possible and spam dual wielding now just with luck and patience I hope this will helped and it works for you like it did for me :)

Good luck :)

So, basically make a zoning Cassie? And doesn't the gas count towards the flawless?

Use Baraka.

That setup got me all the way to stage 7 where I'm currently stuck at.

I thought the gas damages you no matter what you do? Even if you stand still?

That seems to do nice, but it all comes to a stop when they tag the other in, and they're invulnerable for a couple of seconds, and cannot be damaged, and do a near unblock able attack.

Main tag-in issue is Sub-Zero. He'll get tagged in, and do a full screen slide and hit me while I'm in a projectile animation, and can't block.

I do it too if I really want something but have no desire/energy to play and if modifiers are ridiculous. But sometimes it's not only about completing something. It's about having fun and learning but modifiers ruin that and using AI is boring and most of the time you can't learn anything from it.

I can usually learn some things. Like seeing what combos are possible as the AI can do any combo you throw at it with millisecond precision

Yea, I'm giving up on it until I get that nuke konsumable as just the other 2 will not get me anywhere. So I'm just going to farm towers that give random green konsumables until I get it! Thanks for the suggestions though! I appreciate it!

What was stage 6? I don't remember using any konsumables, so I believe my Baraka did all the work :)

Nope, that Baraka can't do it either. Not even close. He gets 1 round if he is lucky and even that with fatal blow. Every AI gets destroyed by those rockets. They take almost 50% hp ffs. I guess I will have to do this by myself but I don't want to cause I'll just get frustrated af.

What's the challenge again? I remember finding some stages that took me like 20+ tries for RNG to be on my side, but that's about it.

Wait those rockets are unblockable as well?????

Well F that lol. This is only stage 2, has 2 towers and with 3 BS modifiers. 3! Arrow stuns you for forever, rockets are unblockable and if you can somehow manage to block/dodge arrow and jump over rockets, the third modifier (Jacqui/Cassie) will hit you or the character you are facing. If that is not enough, Cassie(don't know about Jacqui) has full screen earthquake/electric thing with her drone which you need to block as well. So even if you time your jump over the rockets perfectly, that shit will still hit you.

Who the hell comes up with this?? And that's only stage 2. And there are 30? What a BS this gauntlet...
