What makes him so great? I don't get it. Besides his six hit confirm, he is really sub-par.
Extremely mobile, too much AP gain, really great L1 and L2, easy combos, and way too many confirms.
You could literally do well with him if you ripped out two of your controller's attack buttons.
WHAT IS THIS!?
Well, he has great mobility, ridiculous AP gain, ridiculous amounts of kill confirms, the 2nd best with combo potential next to Dante. But he's also OVERUSED. I'm paired up with at least 1 Raiden a game usually. I'm a huge MGS fan and was psyched to play with him, but I quickly found how overused he was getting (early release of the game) and made me master more of the underrated characters.
Hes also really mobile and has some good aerial combos that start on the ground. His lvl 1 is pretty good while his lvl 3 sucks and his 2 is ok. His hit confirms are awesome..... He can confirm off a grab, he can confirm off his dash attack, and he can confirm with his most basic attacks. His confirms are pretty awesome.
