Chapter Guide – Act 4.1.4 – Symbioids – Level 39 & 1st 6-Star

Summoners!

Here’s my guide for Act 4.1.4 “Symbioids” in Marvel Contest of Champions.

General Thoughts:

Act 4.1.4 has 6 paths and some hidden nodes, so be sure to check the path info below. There is always an Adaptoid ambush of around 2.1K PI on the first node. The mini-boss rotates between Punisher, Star-Lord, and OG Vision.

During my run through Act 4.1.4 I reached Level 39 and added a third point in Petrify. I used an Awakening Gem on Black Widow Deadly Origin, and brought 4-Star Killmonger and Aarkus to Rank 4. I also pulled my first 6-Star Champion, Red Skull. He’s not the best tech champ by any means, but he will be able to help my progress. My Top 10 champs are now over 3K PI, another sign of my steadily maturing account.

Best Champs:

Restrictions: You will need 1 champion of each class to 100% explore this map. Please see individual lanes for requirements.

Global Node: None

Boss: Colossus

Boss Notes:
Heavy-Handed
+50% Attack & Health

This is just a Colossus with some extra Attack and Health. Nothing special to worry about.

Lane 1 – Far Left

Gate: Need 1 Skill & 1 Cosmic Champion

Defenders: Magneto, Wolverine, Elektra, Storm, Drax, Cyclops New Xavier School, Yellowjacket, Unstoppable Colossus, OG Vision

Nodes: +50% Attack & Health on 2nd and 4th Hidden Nodes (Storm, Cyclops New Xavier School)

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

Tips: The hidden defenders (Elektra, Storm, Drax, Cyclops New Xavier School) aren’t much to worry about unless you get tagged by a special.


Lane 2 – Left Center

Gate: None

Defenders: Magneto, Wolverine, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Hawkeye, Daredevil, Yellowjacket, Unstoppable Colossus, Punisher

Nodes: None

Team: 6-Star Red Skull, 5-Star Captain America Infinity War, 4-Star Man-Thing, 4-Star Black Widow Deadly Origin, 4-Star Emma Frost

Tips: I did a little testing with my new 6-Star Red Skull here. Any 6-Star is OP against this content but it was interesting to test out his Power Drain and Shock abilities. He’s not a highly regarded champion but I think he will be able to help be going forward. Overall this is a very vanilla path, so there isn’t much to worry about.


Lane 3 – Center Left

Gate: Need 1 Tech Champion

Defenders: Hulk, Iron Patriot, Gamora, Magneto House of X, Magik, Ronan, Star-Lord

Nodes: None

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

Tips: This is another Easy Path option. There are no nodes or hidden defenders to deal with.


Lane 4 – Center Right

Gate: Need 1 Mutant Champion

Defenders: Hulk, Deadpool, Rocket Racoon, Magneto, Spider-Man, Ronan, Punisher

Nodes: None

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

Tips: As long as you bring at least one non-Metal champ and can block or out-damage Deadpool’s regeneration you’ll be good for this path.


Lane 5 – Right Center

Gate: None

Defenders: Spider-Man, Black Panther, Daredevil, Cyclops New Xavier School, Iron Man, Iron Patriot, Gamora, Storm, OG Vision

Nodes: None

Team: 6-Star Red Skull, 5-Star Captain America Infinity War, 4-Star Man-Thing, 4-Star Black Widow Deadly Origin, 4-Star Emma Frost

Tips: I did some more Red Skull testing here and just steamrolled all the defenders. Once again, nothing much to worry about if your parry is on point.


Lane 6 – Far Right

Gate: Need 1 Science and 1 Mystic Champion

Defenders: Spider-Man, Black Panther, Juggernaut, Wolverine, Captain America, Magneto, Gamora, Storm, Punisher

Nodes: +50% Attack & Health on 2nd and 4th Hidden Nodes (Wolverine & Magneto)

Team: 5-Star Captain America Infinity War, 4-Star Sorcerer Supreme, 4-Star Sabretooth, 4-Star Guardian, 4-Star Sentry

Tips: The biggest thing to remember here is that the final hidden defender is Magneto so you want to bring in a non-Metal champion for that fight. The hidden Juggernaut is awakened.
