Most Annoying Multiverse Attacks https://combatarmsblog.com/most-annoying-multiverse-attacks/ Sun, 31 Jul 2022 20:15:00 +0000 https://combatarmsblog.com/most-annoying-multiverse-attacks/ MultiVersus is an incredibly popular platform fighter, especially on Steam where it’s now the most popular fighting game on the platform.

MultiVersus is an incredibly popular platform fighter, especially on Steam where it’s now the most popular fighting game on the platform. And, a big reason for this popularity has to do with its accessibility.



RELATED: Capcom Fighting Collection: All The Game Changes

The game is based around beloved characters, and the controls are relatively easy to pick up for those not incredibly familiar with the genre. And for the veterans, the more advanced mechanics are there to reward those who stick around. But, since the basic combat is a bit simpler by design, there are certain attacks that players tend to rely on too much and even spam. So, let’s look at some of the most annoying attacks in MultiVersus which players are already talking about enough.

9 Harley Quinn drummer!

Let’s talk about Harley Quinn first. This character is simply absurd. She has bonus damage from her Assassin class, enough tools to compare her to Solid Snake in Smash Ultimate, and fantastic normal attacks that tend to lead to high damage combos. And, on top of all that, she has one of the most reliable vertical knockout moves in the game with the Up + Special Batter Up and an ever-safe approach move with her Aerial Pummeler Neutral + Normal Attack.

Nothing is worse for a player than coming across a Harley who is winding up his bat.

8 Shaggy’s Chiller Instinct Kick

Ah, the Chiller Instinct Kick, also known as Shaggy’s own rendition of Captain Falcon’s “Falcon Kick” from the Super Smash Bros. series. However, unlike the captain, Shaggy has the ability to enhance his kick using the rage generated by his Neutral + special, Zoinks, and turn that already overpowered kick into something that can ring opponents with punches. incredibly low damage numbers.

Not only that, this Kick also has absurd speed and range as it beats most other moves in the game, which is why the last open beta was so prevalent with Shaggy players doing nothing but spamming their Instinct Kicks the whole game. And, the crazy thing is, most of the time they were still winning using just one attack.


seven Garnet Crystal Combo

Now, compared to characters like Shaggy and Harley, Garnet isn’t as popular and not as strong. But, what this Crystal Gem has in spades is recoil power and sheer weight. Garnet is the third heaviest character in the game behind Iron Giant and Superman, and she uses that weight to her advantage. But, Garnet’s bread and butter move has to be here Side + Normal Attack, his Crystal Combo which has three different “finishers”.

RELATED: The Weirdest Fighting Games

There’s the uppercut finisher, the two-hit down finisher, and finally the Armor fist flam finisher. That last one is by far her most annoying move, because it has a gigantic arc that extends over Garnet’s head, it’s shielded, so she completes the swing no matter what (mostly), and it has tons of hindsight. In fact, this move is so good that the few Garnet players out there tend to rely on it too much and ignore their other fantastic moves such as his Starburst Aerial Neutral + Attack or his Spark of Love Up + Special.


6 Jake’s Hambone brake!

Jake the dog might be one of the most beloved characters in the MultiVersus and for good reason, he is such a lovely guy. But, he has a few flaws as a fighting game character, and one of them is how lacking in fast approach moves he is. Harley, for example, has her air + side attacks that combine quickly and easily into her ground attacks, but Jake struggles a bit.

Yes, Jake can use Giddy Up, Stretching Out, or even his Belly Bump Aerial Neutral + Attacker as approach tools, but most people just rely on Hambone Brake. It’s a charge move, it has a sweet spot at the end of the fist, it has high damage/knockdowns, and it’s even capable of aiming! Because this move is so versatile compared to his other options, it’s another one of those attacks that new Jake players end up spamming constantly, making it a real pain to fight.


5 Finn’s Backpack Attack

Now that Finn the Human is on the free character roster, people are finally realizing just how strong this adventurer from Ooo is. Finn is basically the only sword character in the game (Wonder Woman’s sword barely counts), and it shows, because his reach and swing speed are so absurd compared to the rest of the cast. On the ground, a skilled Finnish player can easily inflict 60-100 damage on an opponent in seconds, while repelling any attempted counterattack.

But it’s his Up+Special, Backpack Attack, that people really fear. This thing is just as strong as Link’s Up + Special has been in every smash game. But, the real terror is the fact that this attack’s hitbox extends upwards above the actual animation, making it very easy to get sucked into the spin as it looks like should have been avoided. This attack, alongside other upcoming nerfs to Bugs Bunny, needs to be something the devs are looking into.


4 Superman Ten Ton Tackle

Superman is another relatively popular character that has seen a massive resurgence with free character rotation. Previously players only had to go up against a Heat Vision, Ten-Ton Tackle spamming Superman once in a while, now it’s an hourly occurrence at best. For those unaware, not only is Superman a Tank-class character with an absurd number of armored ground attacks, but he also has a hovering Air Special that basically functions as a command take.

And, at lower percentages, it’s incredibly easy to launch the opponent with the Ten-Ton Tackle, get under them in the air, then use the Go Long Up + Special to launch them directly into the zone of blast for a low damage ring. Out.


3 Iron Giant’s Cannonball

Before talking about Iron Giant, it must be said that this character is hilarious, gigantic and so easy to combine in Teams. So, in exchange for having lots of moves with ginormous hitboxes and long animations, IG is essentially a punching bag when not attacking (unless using his bolts). That said, this is by no means an excuse for players new to squads who simply let their ally soak up all of the enemy players’ aggro as they continually spam their Cannonball Down + Special from the top of the stage over and over. again (which will also bug half the time).

RELATED: MultiVersus: Characters That Wouldn’t Match The Game

Fortunately, the attack is easy to dodge, but the hitbox lasts a bit longer after the animation ends, so it’s easy for players to think it’s over and try to punish it, only to get hit by the tail of the hitbox and fly offscreen.

2 Steven Universe’s Bombshell Steven

This annoying next attack isn’t too well known, simply because Steven Universe is one of the least played characters on the roster. That said, as Main Steven, we know how annoying the Steven Bomb Neutral + Special can be. Not only does this Special have absurd recoil and damage, but it’s also very easy to hit.

Because the bomb attached to Steven, the other bomb he’s floating (or attaching to his ally), and the energy tether that connects them all count as hitboxes when the attack appears, it’s very easy for Steven players to position themselves to hit an opponent and just hold their shield waiting for it to burst. This gesture is all the more annoying as it punishes players who have adapted to MultiVersus’ aggressive style of play consisting of consistently staying on top of your opponent.

1 Tom & Jerry’s Slingshot Sniper

Finally, it’s time to talk about Tom and Jerry. It’s impossible for a list of annoying attacks not to include these two characters, the most technical and annoying characters on the list. With the Slingshot Sharpshooter Neutral+Special in particular, Tom can position Jerry wherever he wants on the stage before Jerry sends tennis balls his way and then constantly peppers his opponents with the use of the racquet.

For an example of this combination’s dominance, just watch a single match of Smash Ultimate pro CLG Void playing with Tom and Jerry.

MultiVersus is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

The most exciting time of year for South Florida lobster lovers is Wednesday and Thursday. That’s when Florida’s annual mini-season gives them their first chance to grab a delicious dinner since the regular lobster season closed on April 1.

The lack of lobster traps and not being poked and prodded by divers armed with snares, tickle sticks and nets for nearly four months usually results in an abundance of less wary insects than usual for what is officially known as the two-day lobster sport. season.

As if that wasn’t reason enough to go diving for bugs, as they’re known for their insect-like appearance, when the mini-season begins at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Miami’s daily bag limit -Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties are 12 lobsters per person, double the regular season limit.

The mini-season is more restrictive in the Keys, where the daily limit is six bugs – the mini-season daily limit is also six per person in Biscayne National Park – and no diving is allowed at night . The reason is to limit the number of divers descending on the Keys, where lobsters are generally more abundant, especially in the shallow waters surrounding the island chain. Many lobster hunters catch them in six to 10 feet of water using only a mask, flippers, and snorkel.

Also, no lobster fishing is permitted in John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo during the mini-season. And law enforcement is on the water and ashore checking that divers have too many lobsters as well as undersized insects – the hard shell or shell of a lobster must be over three inches – and egg-bearing females.

It should be noted that state prosecutors and judges in the Keys take lobster cases seriously, issuing fines and sometimes even confiscating boats and vehicles used to commit flagrant violations.

Safety is also a concern during the mini-season, mainly because many divers haven’t been in the water since last year’s mini-season. Their diving skills might not be as sharp and their diving equipment might not work properly. Cracked hoses that leak air and mask and fin straps that are about to tear can endanger a diver’s life.

One of the biggest dangers of the mini-season is divers running out of air. In their excitement to reach their limit, some divers who have enough air in their tank to bring them safely to the surface spot a lobster and decide to chase it.

The annual mini-lobster season runs from 12:01 a.m. July 27 to midnight July 28. Courtesy of Steve Waters

Using a trap or tickle stick and a net to coax an insect out of hiding in a reef or under a ledge can take some time. When divers focused on catching one more lobster suddenly realize they’ve used up all their remaining air, they usually rush straight to the surface and don’t stop for a three-minute safety stop. to avoid decompression sickness, also known as bends. And some divers panic and never make it to the surface.

Some boaters, in their rush to get to their lobster hotspot, drive too fast and too close to dip the flags. Boats should make an effort to stay at least 300 feet from open water dive flags and slow down within this distance.

Safety conscious divers fly a dive flag on their boat and also have a dive flag on a float they tow behind them. This makes it easier for the person driving the boat to follow the divers through the water. They can also use the boat defensively when another boat is heading towards their divers by getting between the boat and the dive flag so the other boat has to move away.

Lobster hunters can celebrate a safe and successful mini-season opening day at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea’s 10th Anniversary BugFest. The event is offering up to $10,000 in cash, scuba gear, other prizes and rewards for divers participating in the Great Florida Bug Hunt, which costs $30 to participate. Registration for Bug Fest is open online at www.discoverlbts.com/bugfest and at Gold Coast Scuba in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, and runs until 6 p.m. Tuesday.

BugFest activities include parties, concerts and a lobster cooking contest. It kicks off with a free seminar on lobster hunting by Jim “Chiefy” Mathie from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Plunge Beach Resort. This is followed by a mini-season kick-off party from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Divers can weigh their lobsters in several places. They can win $500 for the biggest bug caught on a boat and on the beach, and they also get a raffle ticket for every lobster they weigh. Raffle prizes include snorkel gear, dive boat trips and hotel stays.

IF YOU ARE GOING TO

Lobster Seasons: The annual lobster mini-season runs from 12:01 a.m. July 27 to midnight July 28. The regular season runs from August 6 to March 31.

Limits: The mini-season bag limit is six lobsters per person per day in Monroe County and Biscayne National Park and 12 per person in the rest of the state. The regular season daily bag limit is six lobsters per person.

Legal lobsters: Lobsters must have a minimum carapace length of more than 3 inches and must be measured in the water. Possession and use of a measuring device is required at all times. Lobsters must remain in good condition while in or on the water. No egg-bearing females can be captured.

Singapore woman gets cockroach shot from ear in A&E after crawling inside

For those who suffer from entomophobia, AKA the fear of insects, just laying eyes on an insect can be quite terrifying.

It escalates into an infinitely more hellish experience when she approaches and touches us, but a TikToker recently experienced this nightmare on a whole new terrifying level.

As she was sleeping in her bed, she woke up suddenly when she felt a cockroach crawling near her ear. She tried to kick it out, but the insect retreated into her ear instead.

Her attempts to remove it on her own failed, and the OP had to go to the hospital to have the creepy crawler removed.

Internet users were naturally dismayed by his story, with some noting that they no longer dared to fall asleep.

A cockroach slips into a sleeping woman’s ear and wakes her up

On Wednesday (July 20), a TikToker in Singapore uploaded a video saying she was going to the accident and emergency (A&E) department to remove a cockroach that had crawled into her ear.

She explained that the insect crawled on the bed right next to her head, waking her up.

She tried to knock it out by punching it, but it backfired dramatically when the cockroach apparently decided to take refuge in her ear.

Since his attempts to ‘pressure wash’ his ear did not work, the OP had to go to the hospital so doctors could perform a more delicate procedure.

Fortunately, his video doesn’t actually show the insect’s severed body being extracted, but the thought alone is enough to disgust anyone.

Source: Tik Tok

The video ends with the OP showing a red ear and stating “everything is fine”.

OP says removing cockroach from ear “hurts”

Talk to MS Newsthe OP, who asked to remain anonymous, shared more about his horrific ordeal in disgusting detail.

She said she woke up with the cockroach wandering next to her head. When she panicked and “punched” it, the insect “crawled deep” into her ear.

“I could feel him squirming inside and it was so disgusting,” she recalled, adding that he died when she used liquid to wash him off.

It’s getting worse. Much worse.

The OP then tried to rip the bug out with tweezers, but it was “too deep”.

In the end, all she managed to do was smash the cockroach’s body, causing its “guts and brown shell” to come out “in pieces”.

Source: Tik Tok

While A&E staff managed to get the cockroach out of his ear, OP said it “hurts.”

“Half of the severed body and the feelers were intact, so they pulled out a big chunk of it,” she said.

A quick Google search shows that cockroaches invading the ears are actually much more common than we thought.

There are many reports of people finding cockroaches – sometimes several at once – stuck in their ears.

Internet users disgusted by the story

The OP’s video has since garnered over 300,000 views and over 400 comments, most of which consist of other TikTokers expressing their horror.

A user exclaimed that she now had something new to worry about.

Source: Tik Tok

Another joked that they would now sleep with a plastic bag over their head.

Source: Tik Tok

And then there were those who said they were now afraid to fall asleep.

Source: Tik Tok

In a follow-up video, the OP explained that she used mouthwash to kill the cockroach, which was around 3.5-4cm long.

She added that A&E doctors had to remove it from his ear “leg by leg”, followed by the upper half of his body. They then gave OP antibacterial ear drops.

I hope this will never happen to us

When we fall asleep at night, the last thing we want is for anything to crawl inside our body while we dream.

Maybe this can be a reminder for some of us to deep clean our rooms, just in case.

We are happy that the OP was able to resolve the issue quickly and hope that such incidents will never happen to him or anyone else again.

Ka-Bar Kaster – The best compact fishing wheel!

I’m always looking for compact fishing gear. I love standard rods and have even fished with a stick, but there was just something missing and I couldn’t find anything that really worked.

I used a telescopic pole once and not only were they so easy to break, but they were weak and some of them broke when I tried to pull a fish.

It just wasn’t a solid option for me. Maybe I just got faulty ones, I don’t know, but I wasn’t happy with those options.

On a walk the Ka-Bar Kaster!

First of all, the fact that a knife company like Ka-Bar has expanded into other outdoor gear like this fishing reel and even utensils, shows the commitments Ka-Bar has to its audience to provide equipment that matches their lifestyle and needs.

If you love the outdoors, you are familiar with Ka-Bar and its reputation for quality knives.

The Kaster is no different. The way they make their products is second to none. It is made from Ultramid (noted for its mechanical strength, rigidity and thermal stability) and weighs only 0.25 lbs.

Its use is extremely simple.

You can wrap 100 yards of 8lb yarn or 90 yards of 10lb yarn.

Simply remove the plastic clamp and start spooling the fishing line.

When you’re done, attach any hooks, weights, and bait you want.

At this point you can then tighten it until you are ready to fish or start fishing immediately.

It’s so easy to fish with it, I wasn’t sure it was going to be intuitive but all you have to do is hold the line with your finger, pull like you would with a fishing pull, then cast it forward and release the line, as you would with a normal fishing rod.

The line flies extremely far, of course it all depends on the wind and how hard you throw it, but I was surprised how far it can go.

To wrap the line, simply wrap the line around the caster.

Once you’re done, you can put the clamp back in place.

The Ka-Bar Kaster has a huge storage compartment. The top easily unscrews to reveal a huge storage compartment. I felt like I kept putting stuff in there and it never filled up!

It is an all-in-one setup. You don’t even necessarily have to carry an extra fishing kit, because thanks to the storage kit, you can potentially store everything inside and remove it when needed.

For $16 on Amazon, $19 on their website, you really can’t go wrong with this gear in your bug out bag, hiking gear, or regular daily use. It can even fit in your pocket! You’ll never know it’s even there because of its size and compactness.

I highly recommend adding the Ka-Bar Kaster to your rig!

The Best First Aid Kit For The Family – Continue First Aid

We have plenty of first aid kits around the house, in the car and inside all of our bug bags and everywhere else you can imagine. First aid kits are essential when you have children. I have never applied so many bandages in all my life.

Having children in the outdoors means having a lot of sores. Before they were able to put the bandages on themselves, they were always very invested in the whole process. I would tell them about the whole ordeal, embrace it and make everything better. I still do to this day. I want them to know that accidents happen, but there is always a solution.

I have always given my children the means to take care of their sores when they were old enough. They are always very engaged in the whole process of getting the first aid kit, wiping down (which is their least favorite part as it stings), applying the bandage and putting everything away.

So, even though I have a lot of first aid kits, I even made several, I have never seen a first aid kit intended for children and families.

Keep Going First Aid is the first of its kind. I never put much emphasis on fancy designs or brightly colored items until I had kids. They are really drawn to shapes and colors that they like and will eventually stop using them if it’s a pattern or color that they prefer.

Not only do these first aid kits have fun designs on the outside, they also have fun designs on all the bandages. They also come with stickers! Haven’t you always loved getting a sticker from the doctor? It was the best part of seeing the doctor when you were young.

Keep Going First Aid decided it was time to do more to meet the needs of families.

In addition to first aid kits, they also have heating pads and ice packs shaped like stuffed animals. Let’s face it, it’s a lot more comforting to get an ice pack on your forehead when it’s an adorable stuffed animal.

They offer a variety of different sizes:

  • KidsKit
  • Charged MiniKit
  • Deluxe GoKit
  • GoKit
  • SuperKit

Each contains different elements to meet your specific needs. For example, if you want a first aid kit in your purse, I would probably go with the Loaded MiniKit or, depending on the size of your purse, maybe the Deluxe GoKit.

If you wanted a first aid kit for your car, you might want to go for the biggest of them all and get the SuperKit.

I have a loaded MiniKit that stays in my everyday backpack and has been used many times. I also bought a KidsKit for my eldest daughter as she said she wanted her own first aid kit.

I love the design of the KidsKit, but all it contains are plasters and stickers. I kind of wish it had at least the sting wipes for a full boo-boo kit, but for a kid’s first aid kit this is a really smart and simple way to go.

The Loaded MiniKit has everything I’ve ever wanted from an everyday first aid kit. It’s so well organized too, that’s probably my favorite part about it. Everything is so well marked and extremely easy to find. My kids can find everything they need without my help, it’s so simple and well organized.

You can fill the first aid kit with whatever you want, but they also offer first aid kit refills.

Overall, I’m really impressed with their foresight in making these kits. Not only do they have fun designs that help them stand out in your bag and easy for kids to identify, but the contents are well thought out and don’t make it too much of a hassle for already stretched families. it’s easy for us!

And that’s exactly what they did.

I highly recommend you check out Keep Going First Aid Kits and find out which one is right for your family’s needs.

Although school has just closed, children in the Dover-Sherborn area got up early last Friday morning to attend a special outdoor summer lesson. Bryan Man, better known as Professor Bugman, lent his expertise to friends at Sherborn’s Playground for a bug safari.

An adventurer holds up a jar containing a makeshift ecosystem for a moth.

Maureen Hayes, Librarian of Sherborn Youth Services, chose the theme for the summer reading events “Beyond the Beaten Path” and shared her passion for nature by participating in the day.

Professor Bugman and his swarm of entomologists themselves wandered off the beaten path and ventured through the Sherborn playground on Cemetery Lane and across a nearby pond to identify many insects, some crustaceans (such as isopods) and plant life.

Bugman provided the students with magnifying glasses, sweeping nets and jars to facilitate their journey. Students practiced twisting their wrists and rocking their nets back and forth to learn the correct technique, making sure the bag of the net was open for insects (as they tend to fly upwards) .

A young entomologist shows off his proud find: a bark louse.

When Maureen Hayes asked Professor Bugman for advice on how to preserve and connect with nature, her response was to encourage children from an early age to be present in the community – and to visit different local areas. , such as wildlife refuges, to safely engage with The World Around Us.

To that end, Professor B made sure to write down the rules of the outdoor classroom, the most important being not to disturb nature. Navigating with a great level of knowledge and empathy, he noticed an ant carrying a small piece of dirt. “Let them do their job,” he said. “If you were doing your homework or your chores and a giant picked you up, you wouldn’t be very happy.”

As there were no giants in sight – just a beautiful morning, an outdoor classroom and very competent teachers – the young entomologists present for the day’s insect safari were very happy indeed.

A bomb New York Times investigation reports that at least 33 JROTC instructors have been accused of sexual misconduct with their students in the past five years, a far more staggering rate than regular high school teachers. Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps programs, which teach high school students basic military skills, often target Title I schools, the survey found, prompting many low-income students to pursue military service. . An alleged victim, Victoria Bauer, told the Time she was sexually assaulted for several months by her instructor, who was later transferred to another school district. He eventually evaded sexual misconduct charges for a lesser charge of child abuse. “The people who are supposed to protect our country, are they really protecting their own people?” Bauer said. JROTC leaders declined to be interviewed by the Time, but a major sponsor, the U.S. Army Cadet Command, said it monitors instructors and that school districts are investigating allegations of abuse. “There is so much faith, trust and confidence in these instructor positions,” said former Navy and JROTC instructor Joe Williams. “We have these people who use that confidence as a coat.”

You may have noticed that the idea of ​​bugging yourself and putting some distance between yourself and the rest of the world sounds better all the time. The Marine Corps can’t decide what it is, and New York City just released a practical guide to nuclear fallout. It’s encouraging. Maybe having a plan beyond hiding in your living room isn’t a bad idea. What you need is a rooftop tent, and we found one from Rugged Ridge on sale for $280 off — but only today.

People who had the foresight to pack a bug out bag are learning what Overlanders have long known: rooftop tents are the way to go. You can throw your bags-o-goodies in the back of your truck or SUV and be on the road in minutes. When you find a good place to stop for the night, you have shelter and an elevated position that doesn’t take up space in your vehicle. There are a few options, but the 344 owners who contributed to this tent’s 4.5-star rating on Amazon should give you confidence in this one.

The Rugged Ridge Outland rooftop tent folds down to reveal a three-person tent made of weather-resistant 600 denier nylon. There’s a ladder to get inside, windows to keep an eye on your surroundings, and a flysheet for extra protection. There’s even a foam mattress that stays inside when the tent is folded up, which sounds a whole lot better than sleeping on the floor.

Of course, there’s also a chance that you’ll love camping in this rooftop tent even if the world doesn’t stop. At this reduced price, it will pay for itself after three or four nights at the hotel.

Check out other great Amazon Prime Day deals handpicked by the team at Gear Locker here.

I’m willing to bet this rooftop tent is more spacious, comfortable, and durable than anything you’re camping in right now. Add it to your truck or SUV to be ready for adventure ––– in all its forms. Right now, this tent is marked down from a regular price of $1,399.99 to $1,119.99 for a 20% savings.
