Keep in mind that radec has almost no clsoe range attacks. He needs distance if he wants to even do damage. Also dodging the sniper isnt hard and it barely even raises his AP anyway. So i dont realy see a problem with it.
I have a few discrepancies with this. His close range attacks are few, but surprisingly good IMO. Otherwise you're right, though the sniper does definitely raise his AP significantly (I've seen it get 20-30% of his lvl1 in one shot on one person).
Sniper and Grenade Launcher
Grenade Launcher combination with Sniper
Grenade Stum or Laser up, Grenade Launcher combination with Machine Gun
Mines and invisibility and mini-shotgun
Mines and invisibility or launcher grenade to down and flamethower (30 points for all attack, 3 enemies 90 points for all attack)
Yeah, I've learned to dodge the sniper spam by jumping over it toward Radec each time. It's really satisfying to do it with Sweet Tooth and then use his Side-Square to clock him.
When I play as him, though, I like to be what I call a "Reasonable Radec" (a term I coined just now) and use a variety of attacks, with the sniper used only for completing a combo.
more annoying to me is people spamming the sticky grenade. I use radec as my main but i dont do that kinda cheap crap!
Why don't you use it its in the game for a reason.
