Chapter Guide – Act 4.2.3 -Straight Outta Queens – Global Nodes

Summoners!

Here’s my guide for Act 4.2.3 “Straight Outta Queens” in Marvel Contest of Champions.

General Thoughts:
Act 4.2.3 introduces the concept of Global Nodes to the Story Quest. Global Nodes operate similarly to regular Link Nodes, except they apply to every fight on the map. If you defeat a Global Node, it is removed just like a Link Node would be. Global Nodes are often located on the final node of a quest, so you might not actually be able to remove them. If you restart the quest, all the Global Nodes will go back up, just as with regular Link Nodes.

In the case of 4.2.3, the Global Nodes are located on the main line of the quest, allowing you to take them all down on your way to the boss for an initial completion. For example, the first Black Bolt fight in this quest has a 100% Attack & Health Boost. By defeating Black Bolt, this bonus is removed from all the subsequent fights. To 100% the quest, you’ll need to take on the side paths, which force you to leave Global Nodes up. Depending on your roster strength, you may be able to take multiple side paths on a single run.

I ran all the side paths in one go, but you can break them up into multiple runs as I have below. Remember the more side paths you take, the more Global Nodes you’ll leave up on the final boss.

I didn’t acquire any meaningful new champions or make any important rank-ups while exploring this quest.
