Welcome to the Iso-8 guide for Stryfe, 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 Stryfe. The lone Marauder who taunts at the time of this writing, Stryfe is a Villain, Global, Mutant, Protector in Marvel Strike Force and a member of the Marauders faction. Let’s take a look at the stats we want to focus on enhancing now that Iso-8 modifications have been added to MSF.
Main Focus: Survivability in the forms of Health & Defense. Stryfe is the lone member of the standard Emmarauders team that taunts, and the beefier he is the harder this team is to counter. While popular MSF Alliance War counters use Power Armor with Ultron or the Fantastic 4 with Ultron, a super strong Stryfe make these counters even more difficult to pull off.
Ideal Iso-8 Class for Stryfe in Marvel Strike Force:
Like almost every character in Marvel Strike Force, Iso-8 classes are based on the character’s kit and what team comps they are used with. For the Emmarauders, we are recommending to use Emma Frost as a Striker thanks to Mobile Gamer’s video on his Oh Em Gee channel, I have to agree that the Striker role is a better fit due to the way the game is coded. Key to this is using Sabertooth as a Skirmisher alongside her on the Emmarauders team, thus we will in the other spots for the other characters. In the specific case of Stryfe, his value comes in staying alive as this greatly impacts the entire team’s survivability. As a result either the Healer or Fortifier class is the best fit. Personally, I find that countering this team is a huge pain in the butt when Stryfe is stronger and has more barrier so I am recommending the Fortifier class be used.
