Chapter Guide – Act 4.1.3 – Incognito – Hidden Nodes

Summoners!

Here’s my guide for Act 4.1.3 “Incognito” in Marvel Contest of Champions.

General Thoughts:

The curveball with Act 4.1.3 is the appearance of hidden nodes. I have revealed the hidden defenders in the path notes below. None of them pose any significant matchup issues. There are 5 paths in this quest.

During my run through Act 4.1.3 I pulled 4-Star Gwenpool, and once again duped by 4-Star Man-Thing, upping his Signature Level to 40.

Best Champs:

Restrictions: Need 1 Cosmic Champion

Global Node: None

Boss: Superior Iron Man

Boss Notes:
Arc Overload 2.0
+50% Attack and Health

Superior Iron Man isn’t that big of a threat, but you can make your life easier by bringing a Mystic champion who can nullify his buffs, particularly his regeneration.


Lane 1 – Left

Gate: Need 1 Cosmic Champion

Defenders: Ms. Marvel Carol Danvers, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Iron Patriot, Cyclops New Xavier School, Rhino, Star-Lord, War Machine, OG Vision

Nodes: None

Team: 5-Star Captain America Infinity War, 4-Star Emma Frost, 4-Star King Groot, 4-Star Black Widow Deadly Origin, 4-Star Man-Thing

Tips: Cosmic and Mystic champions will do very well as attackers for this lane. I mostly used Black Widow DO and Man-Thing. There are several versions of Iron Man to deal with, so either Armor Break or Buff Nullification is handy to have.


Lane 2 – Left Center

Gate: None

Defenders: Ms. Marvel Carol Danvers, Hulk, Daredevil, Elektra, Captain Marvel Classic, Star-Lord, War Machine, OG Vision

Nodes: None

Team: 5-Star Captain America Infinity War, 4-Star Emma Frost, 4-Star King Groot, 4-Star Black Widow Deadly Origin, 4-Star Man-Thing

Tips: With only one hidden node, this is a straightforward path. Don’t get hit and you’ll be fine.


Lane 3 – Center

Gate: None

Defenders: Black Bolt, Captain Marvel Classic, Drax, Scarlet Witch, Captain America, Hawkeye, War Machine, OG Vision

Nodes: None

Team: 5-Star Captain America Infinity War, 4-Star Emma Frost, 4-Star King Groot, 4-Star Black Widow Deadly Origin, 4-Star Man-Thing

Tips: Of the three hidden fights, Scarlet Witch is the only one that might be a problem. The novelty of the hidden nodes aside, this is a pretty Easy Path.


Lane 4 – Right Center

Gate: None

Defenders: Black Bolt, War Machine, Spider-Man, Gamora, Captain America, Punisher, Ronan

Nodes: None

Team: 5-Star Captain America Infinity War, 5-Star Psylocke, 4-Star Sorcerer Supreme, 4-Star Killmonger, 4-Star Guardian

Tips: With my top champs tied-up in Alliance War, I used this path as a testing ground for Sorcerer Supreme. Her buff suppression and heal-on-block abilities are handy, particularly against War Machine and the Superior Iron Man Boss.


Lane 5 – Right

Gate: Need 1 Cosmic

Defenders: Black Bolt, War Machine, Black Panther, Captain Marvel Classic, Daredevil, Captain America, Punisher, Ronan

Nodes: None

Team: 5-Star Captain America Infinity War, 4-Star Aarkus, 4-Star Sorcerer Supreme, 4-Star Killmonger, 4-Star Guardian

Tips: This path has three hidden nodes. Thankfully the defenders are only Black Panther, Captain Marvel Classic, Daredevil. It’s another longer path but there isn’t much you need to specifically plan for. Once again I played a lot of Sorcerer Supreme and Aarkus to get a handle on those champs, and they did fine.
