    Having a lot of fun with him in The Big Enchilada, where he's generally got time to pump out all the arrows, especially with **Magneto feeding him blue. I've actually run into an issue with not being able to put out later arrows because all the blue tiles on the board are already his countdowns icon_e_biggrin.gif Can't wait until the next time something like Enemy of the State rolls around, with super long Wave missions so he's really got time to get rolling.

    Since it's true healing, I do like dropping his black towards the end of a match, when the tiles are going to do little, if anything, to help the other team. Saves a health pack here and there.

    Actually he will run out of arrows early in the wave nodes, although in my opinion, that isn't so bad. Not all of the arrows are that good. 8 arrows sounds like a lot, but it goes quickly. Charged tiles aren't all that helpful. His hand-to-hand combat move does decent damage for only 5 AP though.

    Sorry if this is off-topic for this thread so far, but the cover used for 3* Hawkeye is my favorite cover they've chosen yet. Beautifully drawn and it conveys a mood for both Kate and Clint so obviously that it almost leaps out of the picture.

    With a single wave of 6, I'm never actually getting all the countdowns off. He's not going to last through the huge like 6 wave ones, but it seems like 2 waves of 4 or 3 of 3 would be about perfect.

    535 medusa, 535 carmage, 355 hawkboy - that's just sick icon_e_biggrin.gif

    I said Fully Quiver was instant effect instead of countdown because I have rotten luck with those. Still he looks to be pretty fun.

    So what else would be a good team to build with this one? I have absolutely no Medusa, and Carnage is a joke in my roster at the moment xD

    In his PvP, I noticed an issue with him, which is that the AI will fire off No Good News even if he's not damaged, granting enemy special Tiles for no benefit. Not a huge deal, but still kinda weak sauce.

    Starlord
    C4rol
    Hawkguy

    wait until he gets 12 blue and C4rol has 3 yellow while starlords everyone with me is on the field. Fire off 4 arrows. Activate C4rols yellow on the blue CD that turns 3 tiles to strike tiles. Watch the fun that happens in the next two turns. 

    This is team is dangerous.

    @Cthulhu can we get his page updated? Purple power still shows 5* stats and the link for blue power doesn't work.

    I really like him as a purple battery. I use him with Miles or Antman, where you want purple ap but want to avoid making some purple matches. He's 4/4/5 about to be champed.

    Ive had him champed for a while, and he is very fun but not really top of the pack. He is great for PvE nodes just flinging arrows everywhere, but PvP he is average. I could really stand for the enemy tiles created by No Good News to be a bit weaker though. Multiple 75 strength tiles is actually nothing to sneeze at, and if you’re playing against any of the new breed of characters who live and breathe special tiles you could really shoot yourself in the foot.

    Hawkguy, StarLord and Coulson in the current Honor Among Thieves PVE has been fun - sooo many countdowns doing all the things

    * edit corrected name of current PVE

    Hawkguy
    Carol
    Vulture

    Is also really fun.

    Personally I like using Hawkguy, Doc Ock, and Modern Captain Marvel. Not a top tier team but fun and more effective than he summof their parts.

    Hawkguy+5DD+Gamora have been crushing it against the SCL9 Nameless Ones in Honor Among Thieves.  Hawkguy’s passive is firing all over the place, quickly fueling both Gamora and DD’s stuns.  DDs purple passive goes to work from there.  Probably effective against any special/cd tile heavy opponents.

    Surprised no one has mentioned Hawkguy with Carnage and Medusa.. blue all day

    When boosted like they are now you would be crazy not to pair Hawkguy with 4-Starlord, throw Colson or Captain Marvel in there, boosted or not, nothing in PVE will survive and you will give some 5 star teams problems in PVP.
