How to Beat the Final Boss (Ultron Omega) in Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite
If you want to get some new color options for your favorite Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite characters, you’re going to need to fight your way through Arcade Mode. It’s not a particularly challenging process for experienced fighting game players but it certainly provides just enough of a challenge to give newcomers a hard time. The only exception to this rule, however, comes in the form of the final boss in Arcade Mode — Ultron Omega.
Ultron Omega is easily the most challenging AI-controlled foe you will stumble upon in Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite. He deals an incredible amount of damage, has a health bar that just won’t drain as quickly as you’d like it to, and comes with a barrage of moves that pose potential danger at every angle. At first glance, he can seem too overwhelming and will have you wondering if you’ll ever be able to overcome this final boss.
A closer look, however, reveals some serious weaknesses and makes the game plan on how to run through this final boss all the more apparent. The key thing you will need to keep in mind is that Ultron Omega has a terrible poker face. Almost every single move he can dish out has a serious tell, whether that be some loud exclamation or a purely physical tell. You will pretty much always know when an attack is coming your way. At that point, just remember to block.
You’ll also want to make sure you close the distance between yourself and Ultron Omega. Being so close to this massive final boss can feel intimidating but it’s actually the safest place to be. Many of his attacks won’t hit you if you’re close enough to him so getting all up in his personal space will protect you from a lot of damage. Even then, however, you will undoubtedly end up taking some damage at some point. The real problem here is that once Ultron Omega manages to deliver some damage, he delivers it in bulk. Don’t expect to survive too many consecutive attacks. In order to overcome this problem, you will want to make sure you are swapping off characters whenever a chunk of your health bar gets taken away. Let one character take to the bench and heal up while you utilize the same “in your face” fighting strategy that you started with the first character.
Also, keep in mind that hyper combos that grab won’t do you any good. Level one hyper combos are definitely your best bet to chip away at Ultron Omega’s health bar as efficiently as possible. Unleashing strings of attacks on Ultron Omega will also help build your meter quickly so take advantage of the time he spends in a defensive position. When he lifts his hands to block your attacks, it’s not time to back off. Keep attacking to build your meter and be aware that dealing enough damage could actually break through his guard altogether. If you are a fan of the Time Stone, utilize those quick attacks and you’ll very easily get through his block.
At a certain point, Ultron Omega will send out two drones to make your life harder. You will need to destroy both of these drones as quickly as possible as you won’t be able to continue your fight with Ultron Omega himself until these drones are out of the picture. It’s easiest to deal with them if you keep them on the same side as Ultron Omega. This will help you not only keep an eye on the drones but also keep an eye on the other attacks that Ultron Omega will still be dishing out.
Utilize all these tips while hitting Ultron Omega with a barrage of attacks whenever it’s safe and you will manage to emerge successful on the other side of all the chaos.
