During MSF’s Green Goblin Trials, players who choose difficulty 5 or higher need to use City Villains to complete node 3 and 7.
Marvel Strike Force (MSF) is an exhilarating video game that invites players to form a powerful squad of Marvel heroes and villains to destroy enemies.
As you progress in the game, you will expand your character collection, which allows you to create more team combinations.
At the time of writing, Scopely is hosting an event to celebrate the arrival of a new character, Green Goblin (Classic). During the Green Goblin Trials, you have to advance in different nodes on varying difficulties.
Some difficulties have certain restrictions that you have to follow to complete the node. If you choose difficulty 5 or higher, you need to use City Villain characters to vanquish the enemies.
On the official Discord server, several players have shared their experiences with the City Villain nodes.
A player named BKess mentioned that City Villains Node 7 is almost impossible to complete on difficulty 7 even with G18 BC. SOOPYSEL0109 mentioned that she is not able to complete the City Villain nodes on difficulty 8.
Players who select difficulty 5 or higher should thus note that completing the City Villain nodes is no easy task, even if you have powerful characters.
Fortunately, there are numerous City Villain characters that you can choose between to complete nodes 3 and 7, however, some characters are considered better than others if they are upgraded.
Recommended City Villain characters
There are more than 30 City Villain characters to choose from for the City Villain nodes. However, some City Villains are regarded as better than others, especially if they are upgraded.
The recommended City Villain characters are as follows:
|Black Cat||She is a master thief with nine lives and uncanny luck. Her sticky fingers nab enemy buffs and distribute Charge to her allies.|
|Doctor Octopus||Doctor Octopus enhances Sinister Six allies and summons them to battle.|
|Kraven the Hunter||Kraven hunts only the most dangerous game, tearing through his foes and breaking their will to fight.|
|Vulture||He preys on enemies with negative status effects while dealing extra damage to City Heroes.|
|Mysterio||Mysterio can manipulate his enemies’ status effects.|
If you are yet to collect the above-mentioned characters, you can use these characters to complete nodes 3 and 7 during Green Goblin Trials:
|Kingpin||This demanding crime boss summons bodyguards and orders allies to attack|
|Elektra||She is a stealthy assassin capable of dealing immense damage|
|Mister Negative||He can flip enemies’ positive effects|
|Green Goblin||Green Goblin can strip positive effects from his foes with fire and explosives|
|Nobu||This mysterious ninja summons Hand Ninjas and specializes in ambushing his opponents|
|Rhino||Rhino is a heavy hitter that can deal huge amounts of damage|
|Shocker||He uses his Tech sonic bursts to damage entire teams and strengthen his Sinister Six allies|
Recommended ISO- classes
In order to ensure that these characters perform efficiently during the event, you must ensure that you assign the correct ISO-8 classes to them.
The table below lists the recommended ISO-8 class for each character:
|Character||Recommended ISO-8 classes|
|Kraven the Hunter||
As seen in the table, some City Villain characters in MSF have 2 recommended ISO-8 classes, which essentially means that players can experiment with the ISO-8 classes when attempting to complete nodes 3 and 7.
To guarantee that you complete nodes 3 and 5, you should use the following strategy:
