Default [MS Review] Crossbone Gundam X2-Kai/Harute Final Mission Type

Hey hey everyone! As you may have known from the previous GGFTW MS-R's, my name is Buster, and I'm here to write another DUAL MS-R. Now why make two MS Reviews instead of one, you ask? The thing is, I play battleships too, and I tend to pair mobile suits that I think has a pretty good synergy together.

Now onto the MS Review(s)!

Mode 1

First off we got Crossbone Gundam X2-Kai. Now this MS is as flashy as its X-shaped ready pose, with the same power to boot. Used by Zabine Chareux in Universal Century 133, this Gundam is an upgraded version of the Crossbone X2, in both appearance and weaponry alike.

Wait what, upgrades? Yes upgrades. Other from the sexily redone X-shaped thrusters, the SR version has better weaponry overall than the S rank version.

W1. Shot Lancer (Melee Mode) - 2 hits to knockdown, no melee dash. This is a relatively fast weapon and can deal near fatal damage to any normal sized MS from the back, and known to instantly kill B ranks and C ranks from the back. The S rank's version is a 4 hit melee thrust with melee dash.

W2. Shot Lancer: 4-Barrel Heavy Machine Gun - What a mouthful of words for a machinegun that spits lead rounds. But with its fast reload and plentiful ammo, it is a machinegun unlike no other. Best weapon to use against I field users and units with beam immunity, like Akatsuki variants. Really, it tears through Akatsuki like a hot knife through butter.

W3. Buster Launcher - I remember this being called "Dr. Needle" during an April Fools' joke wiki edit. It is a beam sniping weapon with fast reload, and reloads even faster with Veteran Sniper EX. Running away with less than 20% Health? Oh no you don't.

Mode 2

Beam Zanber - Dat 3 hit swing. Very fast animation, nice AOE in front of the unit. Its so good it makes X1 Kai's Beam Zanber feel inferior. Nah, just kidding. Both has its ups and downs, and for X2 Kai, its the 3 hit melee, which is a downer even if you got to hit someone from the back.

Zanbuster (Pistol Mode) - your standard Xbone flintlock.

Buster Launcher - This is what makes X2 Kai a good MS. Apart from the already cheap Sniping Mode, the Laucher mode makes it a mobile version of WZC, and can be used alternately with Zanbuster. Oh did I mention that it inflicts SLOW ailment? Its like STUN ailment, only slightly lame!


Skills:

Veteran Sniper EX
When the unit's health drops below 80%, the unit's defense against medium-range weapons and search distance are increased, and sniping weapon will do critical hits when zoomed in.

Space Pirate's Conviction
When the unit's health drops below 60%, the unit's defense against beam weapons and boost recovery are increased and damage is maximized.

So it sounds like an awesome MS Buster! ITS SO PERFECT!!!1one

1. Wrong. As attractive as it is, this MS comes with one horrible weakness: That softness. It is so squishy it can't last long when taking moderate fire from the enemy, which is why it is played like a sniper MS mostly, away from enemy line of sight.

2. But that's the problem. With its kit, it should be played as a versatile MS. So much wasted potential with its whole moveset given its squishiness. I play X2 kai like a scissor, it just takes a while to get used to the squishiness. And it always ends up with me dying even if I'm very careful with my positioning. It is just that squishy.

3. Do not be discouraged by my words though. It is just a friendly reminder as a proud owner of such a fine SR mobile suit. SR X2 is still a pretty powerful MS, and even if your whole team is feeding, you're still bound to carry hard.




And now, time for some videos!


Imouto-tier video.

Ayt, ayt y'all better ignore the first post and get yo'selves ready for da real MS review, featuring everyone's favorite three-eyed pimp, Harute (or Marute) SR. This is a rare treat though so y'all better be grateful. Here's a photo of my homie Harute, being swag and all. Peace.


It hurts to be this fresh, but haters gon' h8.

I know, I know. That's some cool-ass photo. Its even got snoop in it. Not just one snoop, but 5! That's like 4 more snoops! Damn.

But wait Bustah! He don't look so fresh to me.

Shut yo' mouth cracka. You don't talk to Harute dat way foo'.

1. Harute's got crappy 4 hits melee in Harute mode, but that's cuz he's takin' it easy on you, y'know chillin' but still killin'.

2. Harute's knives are not only 100% pure bling, but it also shoots lasers. LASER.SHOOTAN.KNIVES. Damn.

3. Homing missiles 'cuz pimps don't need to aim.

4. Yo gots seen his shoes sho 'nuff! Air Jordans got nuthin' on his treads. Literally walkin' on air like a boss.


Now if y'all piss my homie long enough, he puts on two more sunglasses and turns into Marute mode cuz he cool like 'dat.



Marute Mode
When the unit's health drops below 70%, the unit changes to Marute Mode and the unit's boost duration and search distance are increased and enemy positions are shown on the radar.

Trans-AM (Harute)
When the unit's health drops below 50%, the unit's defense, movement speed, boost speed, agility, and boost duration are increased.


1. Q: Uhh, what does this mean?
A: Either you dumb or y'all just can't get to his level. While on Marute, stabbin's faster cuz you pissed him off, and he stabs you one more than usual.

2. More ammo on his gunz cuz he mad. Pop a cap twice up yo cracka' butt.

3. Homing missiles turn into flying scissors. HOMING.FLYING.SCISSORS. I mean, why stab a foo when you can cut a foo? And did I mention they're flying scissors? Yeah, I thought so. Damn.

I'm still not convinced, Bustah. Wut do?

1. Oh hell naww. Y'all just hatin' cuz ya ain't ballin' like ma boi here.

[Insert Serious Notes Here]

-Harute is a good DPS/Support MS as well as a secondary infighter. Although I would advise that Harute players stick to shooting at while Marute mode is not active. Stay behind cover and launch missiles from a safe distance while giving support fire to your team mates.

-Another useful bit to remember is to watch out for your skill bar since switching from Harute to Marute WILL reset your w1 to w2, allowing your opponent to counter your melee.

-Sword bits do good damage, unlike the S rank variant. Reloads fast too, which makes it good at last man standing duels.

-Harute can be played both aggressively and defensively which makes it very versatile.




Get educated, get stunned, cuz he a playa' like no otha'

From this thread, we've learned that Buster have 2 modes too.

X2 Kai review : Buster (Normal Mode)
Marute review : Buster (Smoking Weed Mode/Gangsta Mode)



X2 Kai review, nothing to say. Agree at every point, including it's weakness.
I love that beam zanber melee though, it's fast enough to counter any close-range unit that wants to slash me.

Marute, i dont have it. Even after reading your swagalicious review, it still couldn't convince me into drawing it from CCM...
Perhaps it's because i have the normal Harute (yup, the one that doesn't have that shoes) so i don't really want to spend G for Marute.

Definitely gonna pick it if it ever comes out as a reward in a event though.

Overall, marvelous review as usual Buster. I hope you keep making reviews because i really enjoy reading them.

If there's one thing I observed when using S Harute over SR Harute is that S Harute has better overall melee. Like, S Haru is made to chop people, and that W3 dash is there to ensure you don't screw it over.

SR Harute has better funnels and beam MG over S Harute. And more swag. I previously thought that S harute > SR, but both has its ups and downs. I definitely love SR Harute because it is faster overall, and has better and STRONGER pew.
