Yes, I went there. After a whole month of pondering on whether I should get myself a V2 Assault, I could no longer deny myself that urge and decided to give in to the pressure.
That shield. Yes, that shield. What's so effing great about that frontal triangular umbrella that fascinates many? I do not know as well. What I do know is that I am not gonna play V2A because I wanted that shield.
Maybe it's because of my sheer love for the V2 Gundam that made me do it. Yeah, maybe. I wasn't really a fan of the Seed or EW units so maybe I decided to get a Gundam that's sorta identical to my V2B. From what I can see, the V2A isn't as fast as the V2B. It doesn't get the Def bonus of V2A either. What it does get is beam reduction and Booster Increase. Yes, Beam Reduction. While that isn't as inviting as the general Defense Up, I do believe that in the near future, most melee units would be rendered obsolete due to the increased number of beam units. Yeah, I could see units like God Gundam and Epyon cower behind their covers while being caught in the crossfire of long range weaponry. What's more, there's Strike Freedom, Infinite Justice, and the ever so popular HWS Nu. Those three SS ranks all have something in common: Beam Weaponry. Of course, I knew deep inside that my V2B or Sazabi might not have a place in the future generation.
V2A isn't any better though. It picked up from where V2B has left off though: More beam weaponry. As I was watching the video above, I noticed a few mistakes on the player. One, he was only using the Beam Shield mode. Yeah, I saw that he was against an Akatsuki, FAZZ, Strike Freedom, and Infinite Justice. His decision was correct at one point, but I noticed that he's spamming the W1 of BS mode out of it's actual range. I mean, why would he do that? Wouldn't it be better if he just shot with W2? His beams wouldn't hit anyway and it would be a waste for the burst beam rifle. He would not have any ammo by the time he really needed it. Second, if I remember correctly, the Mega Cannon is identical to V2B's purged Mega Cannon. If he had used that more often, he would've scored more kills because the purged Mega Cannon is actually a strong weapon. Another thing would be that the V2A's sword ability is actually inferior for a rock. While it could tear most scissors quite good, the 3 hit smack of the V2B could do a better job in my opinion. Going in for a melee attack with the V2A could prove to be bad in most cases. The Mega Beam shield however, is a good thing. You get to shoot a shining V that slows enemies down. Now that's a cool gadget. You slow fleeing targets and bombard them with two shots of the Mega Cannon before unloading a storm of Mode 2 burst rifle shots. I played the Gelgoog Beam Naginata and Kyrios so I should know the power of the burst rifle.
I wouldn't say V2A is bad, but I also happen to hear that V2A gets a massive def penalty on Shield Mode. But even so, I want to take that risk and take my gameplay to the future. In my opinion, V2A is a rock that's bad for melee but outclasses many with it's ranged weaponry. I wonder if it could take the reflected beam shot from the Akatsuki? Still, I have yet to know. What I do know is I'm looking forward to the coming of my V2B's twin. I bet I'll have real fun with it.
Hah, I was right. The Mega Cannon is identical to V2B's. Now when two V2A's meet in the battlefield, they take down their shields, shoot flying v's at each other, and who hits first with that sword wins. Now that's fun. The sword spec is okay, but I still think V2B's is cooler.
