Overview

The Perfect Strike is an easy-to use all-rounder suits that combines all 3 Striker packs from the Strike Gundam.

As a result, it boasts respectable ranged firepower and a potent melee damage potential. Cancel routes for its ranged options are plenty, and this suit can very quickly hit confirm and down any opponent. However, due to the added weight, the suit is rather cumbersome in terms of general mobility and lacks any additional mobility options or cancel routes like Amekyans etc. While rotation speed is decent, all of its ranged options except Main causes vernier. It’s relatively short red-lock is also a key weakness that all users have to be wary of.

While it’s an easy suit to pick up and play, its sheer simplicity may also prove to be its weakness. The P Strike’s moves are fairly predictable and it has no cheeky tricks up its sleeves. Overall a very “honest” suit that’s difficult to do well in, but still boasts some respectable raw firepower.

Ranged Weapons

Main: Beam Rifle

Standard BR. While there is little risk of running out of ammo due to the abundance of ranged options. It is the only tool that does not cause Vernier, so do use it carefully.

Charged Main: “Agni” Hyper Impulse Beam Cannon (Gerobi)

A gerobi-type attack using the Beam Cannon. Has good muzzle correction, along with the ability to turn the beam while firing.

However, the start-up of this attacks is rather slow, thus making it easy to avoid if the enemy is paying attention.

This is an option to work around Perfect Strike’s rather short red lock range as it can be fired in green lock and then swept towards the enemy.

Sub: Beam Boomerang

Throws a short-range boomerang out, which returns after a short while. Though the animation causes Vernier, it retains some inertia from previous movement.  While it has good start-up, travel distance, travel speed and muzzle correction, the hit box is rather small. However, damage proration from the initial hit is low and is a decent option to create openings with. 

Due to its returning animation, this is a good self-defense tool as it can interrupt opponents who are closing into melee range. Thus this tool is good either in offence or defense.

Special Shooting: “Agni” Hyper Impulse Beam Cannon

Perfect Strike halts and fires a beam that downs the target. While this move causes vernier, it still retains some inertia before firing. There is also a slight recoil backwards when firing. 

Beam travel speed is fast, and has good tracking and muzzle correction. However, it’s most important property is the fact that it causes a Forced Down upon a single hit. Especially useful against units with Superarmor and can serve as an important lifeline in certain disadvantageous situations. However, take note that the Down value is reduced during Burst and will not guarantee a single hit Forced Down if used during this period. Vertical tracking is also excellent and can be considered when flying almost directly above a target.

This is Perfect Strike’s most important weapon for range battles; ammo conservation is key when using this.

Special Melee: Vulcan Gun & Gun Launcher

Fires vulcans and 2 missiles. This move will cause Perfect Strike to face front and fire, maintaining some inertia.

This will be one of your main cancel options from BR attacks as it has good tracking with good reload time of 5 secs. Doing this move raw would require a full hit of vulcans and missiles to down the enemy. While this move can be cancelled to itself, it causes Vernier and will leave the PStrike stationary for an extended time, so take this into consideration. Despite the slow projectile speed, the tracking is respectable. Startup and muzzle correction is also decent, and thus usable at all ranges, including close range.

While it can be cancelled from main, it is not recommended due to the slow projectile speed. Overall a decent weapon with good tracking, this is a good tool to harass the enemy and force boost consumption.

2B: Panzer Eisen Rocket Anchor

Pstrike halts itself and fires a rocket anchor at the target. Causes vernier though it inherits inertia from the previous movement and can be rainbow-stepped from. Cancellable to any other action upon hit, including ranged attacks. Firing Main right after landing the anchor hit will result in a freefall. Boost is consumed when the anchor is fired, but not when it is reeled back in. 

A notable property of the anchor is that it can be cancelled from a melee combo even in Overheat, thus giving the Pstrike an “infinite” combo.

Melee Set

In general, Perfect Strike’s melee performance is decent. Due to the utilisation of the Anti-Ship Sword, Perfect Strike’s melee boasts a good reach and high damage. However, it’s best to finish your combos with the Agni Launcher if you want to maximise the potential damage of your combos.

5BBBB: Anti-ship sword combo
This is a 4-stage melee with fast startup and a decently-sized hitbox. However, the melee’s rush speed is average, and it has poor reach for the amount of boost it covers. While it’s not a dependable tool to use as a follow up, the fast startup makes it a decent option for intercepting melee attacks and also for winning rainbow-step wars. The final hit launches the target into an untechable down but has poor tracking and may occasionally miss when attacking targets close to walls or of a different elevation. The third hit only incurs Down and in the rare cases where you miss (hit by a ranged shot in the middle of a melee), it’s best to either boost dash away or cancel into a 2B. 

5BB~8B: Anti-ship sword finisher
PStrike ends with a slash to the right at a 90 degree angle. While it can be used to quickly end the 5B melee combo, there are better alternatives like using the CC8B or finishing off the target with the Agni AC instead. Overall a derivative that can be ignored in most cases. 

8BB: Jab > Slashes
Pstrike does a jab with the Anti-Ship Sword before doing two cross-slashes. Large hitbox with good reach, though has little cut-resistance. While it does high damage by itself, it also incurs a lot of Down value on the target. Follow-up is still possible, though CC8B offers the most reliable results. It does not have the same issues as the 5B melee combo when close to walls so you can rely on this combo instead when close to walls.

4BB: Vertical Slash > Downwards Slam
Has a decent hit box and will often hit reliably despite the poor reach. It has decent performance when used to approach a target, including rushing at a target, wrapping around it. While it tends to be overshadowed by the 5B melee, this is still a good option. The first hit launches the target while the second hit bounces it. From then on, the player has a few possible options for follow-up. For damage, the player can opt for the 5B melee combo. If the player wants to put as much distance between himself and the target, he can also the Agni Ac to shoot it away. Overall a very easy-to-use tool with multiple options for follow-up. However, it has little in the way of cut-resistance.

CC8B: Cartwheeling Slash
PStrike does cartwheeling slash at the target. The rush speed is fast and this melee has a good reach. It has a large hitbox due to the circular motion of the attack and will often hit targets above and below it. If you use this against a target currently meleeing your partner, it’s very likely it’ll hit your partner too. The fast startup and aforementioned properties makes this a good tool for pursuing targets or even as a self-defence tool. Unfortunately, the strengths of this move is hampered by PStrike’s own low boost capacity and low general mobility.

Burst Attack

Simultaneous Striker Pack Attack

Melee Combo utilizing all three Striker packs. While visually flashy, it is not cut-resistant. Similar to most EX Bursts, the initial startup has super armor but the phase in which PStrike uses the Claw Anchor and Agni Cannon are considered ranged attacks, thus may be blocked by mantle and barriers.

Strategies

  • With its variety of range options and poor mobility, it is recommended to play Perfect Strike as back role.
  • Because of its poor mobility, you will often find yourself being out-chased by your enemy. Make use of Perfect Strike’s boomerang and decent melee priority should your enemy try to melee you.
