Default [MSoTW] [29/08-04/09]Zeta Gundam (Beam Saber)


Topography: Versatile
Shield: MS mode only
Mix-only, so get working.

Look at that thing. This thing is supposed to be outdated, yet it can still be used in pubs well. Wildly versatile, no long range but who cares, that's just a crutch for rock players.

Weapons:
W1: 5 hit melee. Very slightly slow compared to newer rocks, but hey, its Zeta, smile!
W2: Beam rifle, 8 shots. Nothing special here, move along.
W3: Grenades, 5 shots. Reload down, relatively small splash damage, usable for damage.

R-W1: MORE BEAM RIFLE.

Skills:
Attack Up: Aww yeah, simple attack up. See them attack rise when you oc attack.
Spec up: Many people complain because AS Zeta has only melee spec. Bad? Hell no, tenderly love avid meleers that try to kill you, you have spec up, you spec, BAM they (probably) will die. Its a good surprise.

Stats? What?
This thing is so versatile, there's so many builds to it.

Speed+Attack - Such a staple for rocks that can't tank, AS Zeta uses it nicely.
Agi+Attack - Alternatively, Agi for slightly faster rifle shooting. Brings the speed up to a scissor's level.
Full attack - See yourself dealing a world of pain with atk up skill
HP+Def - God knows what the person is doing if he uses this
Full Special - WAVERIDER CRASH/RAAAAAAAAAAAGE BEAM SABER ALL DAY, ERRY DAY

My playing style
Nothing special really. Run, gun, melee. There's really all to it to AS Zeta. Its a jack-of-all-trades MS, master of none. Abuse Waverider mode for more speed and extra beam rifle shots. I find it harder to aim in waverider mode for some reason though, just me probably.

Also, GODDAMN FIRE AT SCISSORS THAT HAS ROCK DEFENSE. DON'T BLOODY MELEE THEM. Those beam rifle actually does hurt if you pumped enough attack. There's no playing defense with AS Zeta. With AS Zeta, you go offense, all day long. Pressure the enemy into submission, and punish their mistakes.

Comparisons
Blue Destiny Unit 2: Superior in every possible way. Faster, hits harder, and EXAM. Don't let that get to you though, you have more ammo!
Gundam Mark II Titans: Also faster, and has paper defense. But don't worry, Mark II Titans is frail!
-Too many similiar units to list-

Counters
Those damned papers like V-Dash and Virtue. Heavyarms (EW) also does a number to AS Zeta. Actually, scratch that, many papers today really outdamage AS Zeta. How to defeat them? Outmaneuver them and hope you can score a kill through crafty use of the beam rifle and saber combination. Or spec.

Unicorn (Both) also gives AS Zeta a hard time. Especially the ones built as HP/Def.

Vids
Oh you know who it should be already.

Spoiler!


How do you AS Zeta?

overall a really nice read

things to note are that the wave rider mode cant do switch shot mca :<, so even though it has higher agility, you can shoot *slightly* faster in normal mode if you know the techniques.

another thing that i would like to point out is that AS zeta rifle does the same damage as its melee per hit, and even though the grenades do slightly less per hit, they should NOT be underestimated.

the biggest difference between BD2 and AS Zeta besides the sp damage and prescence of R mode is the discrepancy between melee and gun damage.

It changes the playstyle even furthur

oh and

after you press R guys

PRESS V

Hooray! AS Zeta!

Versatility at short and mid range makes it a damn fine rock to play in most situations, although the new papers nowadays are often too hax to handle. Freakin HACs.

Oh and I find I hardly ever use waverider mode. Being conservative with normal ammo ftw :v

In terms of versatility, AS Zeta is better.

But in terms of damage dealing and overall usage, AR Exia is much better. AR Exia is a beat-down unit, AS Zeta is a jack of all trades.

You're right...
Waverider rifle is harder to aim...it's weird.
Anyways, AS Zeta has a great ranged arsenal, IMO, since it brings ASZ into Scissor range. 5 shot grenades aren't too bad; even ReZEL only has 6, and that's a paper. Splash is always sweet.

Maybe its because humanoid MS move their bodies/hands to fire, making it easier to shoot around corner, I don't know

Or the fact that I'm shooting from a watermelon...

I think it's because the stupid rifle always shakes when you are moving....

Or that it's cause it's shot from the center of the unit.

Probably depends on the person.

I find beams from centre of body easier to shoot with in a no-cover fight because they don't have startup animation. However with buildings around I like rifles because you can poke them around corners.
