If it's an MA that has ifield as a skill, shoot the MA to hell with mode 2 beams as much as you can before it gets ifield. They hurt like hell and has decent reload and ammo.
Once the MA has ifield up, use your claws. They reload quick but disappear just as quick. The damage, however, is top notch. Use the stun beam whenever possible.
SP gain is pretty high on Raphael, so when skill 2 kicks in feel free to beam sp. Stun + beam sp works pretty well together. (given that your sp doesn't take years to come out) Don't be afraid to throw your SP out when necessary since the skills aren't all too great.
Defense is on the flimsy side so don't just stand in the open and shoot. All of Raphael's weapons are not immobile so take advantage of that.
Don't forget ZBS melee which means, you basically are a bastard against any rocks who wanna melee you.
