Chapter Guide – Act 2.1.1 – New Recruits – Level 22

Summoners!

Here’s my guide for Act 2.1.1 “New Recruits” in Marvel Contest of Champions.

General Thoughts:

It’s been a little over a month since my last Frontline Jr adventure. During this time I have kept the account active by participating in Alliance Quest (Maps 1-2) and Alliance War, so I have gained some resources which has allowed me to rank-up and acquire new champs. While I would have liked to have gotten into Act 2 sooner on this account, I had to catch up on other content first.

I decided to test out a few of my newer champions in the quest, including my 4-Star Emma Frost. She’s an excellent champion for new players because she is very tanky in Diamond Form, has good damage, and also is immune to many forms of damaging debuffs. If you pull her as a 3 or 4-star around this time, she’s worth investing in.

In this chapter, you’ll mostly see 3-Star unawakened defenders. There are also random Adaptoid ambushes, but they are very low PI so you won’t have any problems with them.

I reached Level 22 during Act 2.1.1 Exploration, and added the Mastery Point to Recovery.

If you have questions about the basic attack moves and combos in Marvel Contest of Champions, please check out my MCOC 101: Combos guide.


Best Champs: Any

Restrictions: None

Global Node: None

Boss: 3-Star Rhino (duped)

Boss Notes: With Rhino you need to be wary of his “Rhino Charge.” When he dashes in he will be Unstoppable, and there is a random chance his attack will be Unblockable. Note that the bigger the opponent is (size tag), the less chance for the Unblockable to trigger.

Your safest plays are to parry Rhino when you are close to him after finishing your combo, or baiting his SP1 attack and then dashing in to counter-attack.


Lane 1 – Left

Gate: None

Defenders: Juggernaut, Ronan, Captain America, Science Adaptoid, Abomination

Nodes: None

Team: Emma Frost (4-Star Rank 1 Sig 0), Elsa Bloodstone (3-Star Rank 2 Sig 0), Mole Man (4-Star Rank 1 Sig 0), Vulture (4-Star Rank 1 Sig 0)

Tips: Juggernaut will begin the fight with an Unstoppable Buff. His Unstoppable works differently than others in the game in that he can not be Parry-Stunned while Unstoppable. While you only have to worry about this at the start of the fight, if Juggernaut was awakened, he would go Unstoppable following every one of his Special Attacks.


Lane 2 – Center

Gate: None

Defenders: Juggernaut, Spider-Man, Ronan, Abomination

Nodes: None

Team: Emma Frost (4-Star Rank 1 Sig 0), Elsa Bloodstone (3-Star Rank 2 Sig 0), Mole Man (4-Star Rank 1 Sig 0), Vulture (4-Star Rank 1 Sig 0)

Tips: See Juggernaut notes in Path 1.


Lane 3 – Right

Gate: None

Defenders: Juggernaut, Winter Soldier, Ronan, Captain America

Nodes: None

Team: Emma Frost (4-Star Rank 1 Sig 0), Elsa Bloodstone (3-Star Rank 2 Sig 0), Mole Man (4-Star Rank 1 Sig 0), Vulture (4-Star Rank 1 Sig 0)

Tips: See Juggernaut notes in Path 1.
