...tips for taking him down, continued...
•Force him to push! Another tactic for dealing with Nightcrawler is to try and force him to perform a push action. This of course will cause him to take a clix of damage and slow him down by adding a second action token, forcing him to clear on the next round. Indomitable characters can be very effective with this strategy. (Once I was able to fly a Hammer of Thor Ultron adjacent to Nightcrawler who had already pushed last turn. After he cleared, I managed to roll a critical hit with Pulse Wave for 5 points of damage. Bu-bye Kurt.)
Another clever way to accomplish this tactic is to base him with a character that has the power of Poison. Since poison is not an attack, Nightcrawler’s spiffy powers and high defense value won’t help him to avoid the damage.
•Bait him to come to you! It can be a bit of a risk putting a character within Nightcrawler’s hypersonic reach. However it can be a great way to bait him into an attack position. Make sure if you use this tactic, you use a character you don’t mind losing so much. Don’t forget to make sure you have actions available to take advantage of the situation if he does take the bait.
•Damage Reducers can go along way! Nightcrawler has no way to penetrate damage reducers on his own. So powers like Impervious and Invulnerability can be very effective when adjacent to him. Just be aware of Nightcrawler’s teammates. If Beast and Archangel are his teammates, you may want to re-think this strategy.
