MSF: Archangel minions

MSF players can use Ravager and Mercenary minions in an Archangel team, however, you should attempt to complete the Death Seed team.

Players can enjoy adventurous role-playing elements in this thrilling video game, Marvel Strike Force (MSF). The game’s theme for 2022 is the age of Apocalypse, and Apocalypse is searching for his 4 Horsemen.

One of the Horsemen that you can acquire is Archangel, and many players have wondered what the best minions are for him.

Who is Archangel?

Formerly one of the 5 X-Men, Angel got metal wings from Apocalypse and transformed into Archangel, the Horseman of Death. Similarly to other heroes in MSF, Archangel has powerful abilities that he uses to buff his allies and defeat enemies.

In order to acquire Archangel, players have to participate in the Death Scourge event. Gamers have to complete specific objectives in the event before they can obtain him.

It is unclear whether Archangel will be available for collection in the future or not and therefore, you should be sure collect him while the event is active.

MSF: Archangel minions

Before you begin a fight in MSF, you have to create a team of heroes and supervillains. However, you can select minions, which are non-hero characters, to be a part of your team. That being said, a team with heroes and non-heroes should always consist of 5 members.

Since there are numerous minions available, many players wonder which minions are best for Archangel. You will essentially create a team with only Archangel as a hero, and the other members will be minions.

If you are interested in creating a team with Archangel and minions, it is recommended that you use Ravagers as well as Mercenaries.

The following table outlines which minions are recommended for Archangel:

Minion Description
Ravager Boomer This heavily-armed space pirate supports his allies with plasma cannon fire
Ravager Bruiser He is a boarding expert that uses an energy shield to divert attacks
Ravager Stitcher A spacefaring doctor that heals the most severe wounds
Mercenary Riot Guard This minion is a tough fighter who draws fire while reducing incoming damage
Mercenary Lieutenant He is a field combat leader that makes allies faster and stronger.

Since you can only build teams comprising 5 members, you have to select 2 Ravager minions to join your team.

Regardless of which Ravager minions you choose, it is crucial that you always use Mercenary Riot Guard and Mercenary Lieutenant in your Archangel team.

This means that you can select your Ravagers based on your preferred playstyle. It is therefore recommended that you experiment with the Ravagers to see which team combination works best for you.
