Ok here's my Ratchet Gameplan.
Anytime I have enough room I charge up the Sonic Eruptor (Neutral Triangle) and I let it out whenever anyone gets in range, thats the easiest way to keep people off me and give me some space. Its brilliant at hitting multiple enemies too. Thats [probably my most used attack.
If I dont have enough room I mash forward triangle and that gets people off me too.
Also, when ever I get the opportunity I go for this combo:
Neutral Triangle(tap)+Side Square+Side Square+Up Square +Up Triangle
Its pretty easy for me to pull off, the hardest part is getting the first shot down honestly and the after that its all smooth sailing. It nets a good 140 AP
I think Mr. Zurkon is only good for taunting and his Testla Spikes seem like they'd be useful but I cant find an effective way to use them. Also hid down triangle is completely useless for me.
Has anyone figured out a way to combo into his level 1?
His level 1 has such great range(it's already one of the best), that making it combo-able would just ruin the game. He'd most definitely be the new Meta Knight, and everyone would rage as soon as they see Rachet.
