About Mixmaster:

Faction: Decepticons

Strong Match-ups:

  • Bumblebee
    • Mixmaster looks to deliver much of his damage during Special Attacks allowing him to bypass much of Bumblebee’s evasiveness. Mixmasters use of Ability Block will also greatly reduce Bumblebee’s chance to avoid incoming attacks.
  • Grindor
    • Mixmaster’s Ability Block will hamper Grindor’s Buff generation leaving him weaker to Mixmaster’s potent special attacks.

Weak Match-ups:

  • Rhinox
    • Rhinox’s Shield caps the maxmium damage that can be done to him in a single hit, making it a powerful counter to Mixmaster’s punishing Special Attacks.
  • Sideswipe
    • Sideswipes’s ability to Nullify Buffs makes him more powerful in a stand-up fight against Mixmaster and weakens his eventual Special Attacks.

 

Recommended Modules for Mixmaster:

  • Offense: Laser-Guidance Module
    • Mixmaster depends on his arsenal of projectile attacks for most of his abilities and damage output, making the accuracy and damage boost from this Module a natural fit.
    • The Laser-Guidance Module is found in the Premium Module Crystal.
  • Defense: Strange Refractor (The Strange Refractor is found in the Premium Module Crystal.
    • The Strange Refractor increases the likelihood that Mixmaster’s unique Block ability is triggered, and even gives him the opportunity to counterattack.
  • Defense: Security Module (The Security Module is found in the Premium Module Crystal)
    • The additional Buffs provided by the module help protect the variety of Buffs Mixmaster already generates, and increase his resilience so he has more time to generate those Buffs.
