MSF: Best Iso-8 for Iron Man

Iron Man - MSF

Welcome to the Iso-8 guide for Iron Man, 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 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 Iron Man. One of the most recognizable Marvel characters in the world, Iron Man is a Hero, Global, Tech, Blaster and Legendary character in Marvel Strike Force who is also a member of the Wave 1 – Avenger, Avenger, Power Armor and Bionic Avenger factions. Let’s take a look at the stats we want to focus on enhancing with Iso-8 modifications.

Main Focus: Offense/Damage. Once upon a time, Iron Man had the lowest value of all of the Power Armor characters, and was easily the worst of the Legendary characters in MSF. Thanks to the introduction of the Bionic Avengers faction, however, Iron Man has been enhanced with (at the time of this revision), and is now 9th overall in Damage and 3rd in both Critical Chance and Critical Damage. I would still focus on enhancing his Damage as Iron Man is intended to be an offensive character and enhancing these (now) strong stats seems appropriate.

Additional Areas to Focus: Armor & Focus. Iron Man now checks in 16th overall in Armor and 20th in Focus which complement his Top 10 Damage stat nicely. Beef him up in all areas, especially these three, to get the most out of this Marvel icon.


Ideal Iso-8 Setup for Iron Man in Marvel Strike Force:

For me Iron Man is a perfect fit for the Raider class with Iso-8. Through his Stark Upgrades unique, he gains additional Critical Chance for each Tech or Bionic Avenger ally. Since Raiders gain additional Critical Chance and Critical Damage as you level the Iso-8 crystals up, this feels like the best route, but this comes down to the individual player and how you use Iron Man.
