Welcome to the Iso-8 guide for Beast, 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 Scopely. 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. Note that these Iso-8 classes may differ from one team makeup to another, so feel free use this as guide knowing that these can change in differing situations within MSF’s gameplay.
Today’s character to review is Beast, the first member of the Astonishing X-Men added in Marvel Strike Force. Beast is a key member of that AXmen team, and for the purposes of MSF, Beast is a Hero, Global, Mutant and Support character, and a member of the X-Men, Uncanny X-Men and Astonishing X-Men factions. Let’s take a look at the stats we want to focus on enhancing now that Iso-8 modifications have been added to Marvel Strike Force.
Main Focus: Beast is a Support character who heals and does a fantastic job of enhancing his teammates. He heals all of his X-Men allies, but especially his AXmen allies, and he can cleanse debuffs from. As a result, adding survivability stats like Health and Armor are the stat additions I recommend via Iso-8 enhancements.
Ideal Iso-8 Class for Beast in Marvel Strike Force:
When putting the five AXmen characters in Marvel Strike Force together there are certainly several ways to use Iso-8, however the goal here is to use it as effectively as possible. While Beast has the fastest base Speed on the Astonishing X-Men team, Bishop is often the first to take a turn, thus making the ideal Iso-8 classes a bit trickier. Since we are recommending to use Bishop as a Skirmisher in MSF, this opens the door for Beast to utilize the benefits of the other classes. Given this team is great in Raids and survivability there is the key, I am personally using the Healer class on Beast as well as Kitty Pryde to maximize this survivability. As continued testing takes place this will of course get updated, but for now we are recommending the Healer class for Beast to help keep the AXmen team alive longer and fighting.
03.28.21 Update – I do want to note that after using the AXmen daily for over am month now, added offense would be a nice addition. Given the team already has fantastic survivability I am going to test Beast out as a Skirmisher as well, choosing him over Kitty Pryde due to his higher base Speed, to see if I can get a bit more offense out of this already astonishing team.
