Welcome to the Iso-8 guide for S.H.I.E.L.D. Assault, the latest in our series about the popular game Marvel Strike Force. In this series we look at the best Iso-8 enhancements for MSF characters. While some may refer to Iso-8 as simply “mods” like in other mobile games, we will look to stay true to the naming convention of the Marvel universe and the developers over at FoxNext. We at Gaming-fans.com certainly do not claim to have all of the answers in this game, but we do our research and look to use every hero and villain we write about extensively. These are Iso-8 recommendations based on the character’s kit and actual gameplay to help you in your quest to dominate in Marvel Strike Force.
Writer’s Note: This is being written originally BEFORE the release of Iso-8 modifications in Marvel Strike Force. Having written over 110 of these for another popular mobile game with an IP owned by Disney, and with an extensive knowledge of how these games work, I feel confident that the information below will help you know what areas to focus on when MSF does indeed add the Iso-8 feature.
Today’s character to review is SHIELD Assault. One of the stars of important SHIELD minions in Marvel Strike Force, SHIELD Assault is a Hero, Global, Skill, Blaster, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Minion character in Marvel Strike Force. Let’s take a look at the stats we want to focus on enhancing when Iso-8 modifications are added to the game.
Main Focus: Offense/Damage. SHIELD Assault is a solid character in Marvel Strike Force and has strong value as a damage dealer. He fits well on SHIELD teams for Raids and in Alliance Wars, often used on defense with Nick Fury, Agent Coulson and more. Because he deals very good Damage already, boost the power of his Barrage AoE attack and his other attacks by adding even more Damage to SHIELD Assault to enhance this strength of his kit.
Additional Areas to Focus: Health, Critical Chance, Critical Damage and Piercing? I say “Piercing?” simply because we do not yet know what stats can be enhanced by Iso-8 modifications, and SHIELD Assault already has strong Piercing on his Concussion Grenade basic. His Airborne unique grants him up to +50% Critical Chance, so while his CC may not need much work, adding to his Critical Damage is a good move to make those crits hit harder. Added Health or Defense can help him stay alive, and since he is typically on the screen with the healer SHIELD Medic, Health is a good direction to go.
Ideal Iso-8 Setup for SHIELD Assault in Marvel Strike Force:
At least at this time, before the release of Iso-8, we do not know how these will fit into Marvel Strike Force. Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes and Dragon Champions both feature 6 spots for the mod or rune can be placed, with each impacting specific stats based on that type of modifier. So when the time comes and the details are available, my recommendations for the best Iso-8 for SHIELD Assault will be posted below.
