    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    This video by Gaegel provides a lot of context about the PGstats. The links in the video have the article and the data that shows the wins and losses for every character. He incorrectly uses top 8 instead of the top 12.5% of the bracket, but that makes the sample size look even smaller...

    Pokecheese has some knowledge of Gunner's combos, but he doesn't really seem to have Gunner's kill confirms, grab combos, or missile combos down. In this set against Chad for example, he misses almost everything he does after the grab because he doesn't IDJ after the throw. He misses some kill...

    Katakiri has a much higher opinion on Gunner. Gunner's matchup spreads vary considerably based on the player and the moveset. My opinion on Gunner is on the higher end of the spectrum based on my labbing of Gunner's combos and kill confirms. Realizing how arm rocket's good frame data helps...

    @NotLiquid I am pretty sure Gunner has also gotten some zoner salt in Japan. I haven't translated the comments myself, but I have seen someone else comment about Gunner getting hated on in this video. https://youtu.be/O5P4lY59fx4 @Frihetsanka Why do you think that Brawler is the best mii?

    @The_Bookworm The fsmash buff for Gunner got rid of the blind spot right in front of Gunner. It's a good quality of life buff. With Palutena's grab nerf, Gunner has the best standing grab in the game without question.

    This comparison isn't accurate. Cloud has way more mobility than base Shulk. Shulk good airspeed at 1.113, but his aerial acceleration (.05), run speed (1.672), and dash speed (1.87) are below average. Cloud has great run speed (2.167), dash speed (2.145), and airspeed (1.155) with a below...

    Ly's Corrin winning a 256 man tournament with Protobanham and Ken in attendance is a great result. On the other hand, we can't ignore that the tournament is online, and the bracket is single elimination. Greater feats have been accomplished by less popular characters. Consistent results are...

    Combo Game

    Both dthrow to nair and up throw to nair are true. It is much easier to get them when you do an active hop on the nair. Active hop is an instant double jump method that greatly enhances Gunner's grab game. There is a video for the active hop on this character thread. Both combos are true from...

    Combo Game

    We have a combo thread in this character thread that is also pinned in the Gunner discord. There are even a few videos that show off some of the combos. Up throw to up air is true as a kill confirm at mid to high percents. We have a thread in here that has up throw to up air percents for the...

    Mii Gunner throw whiff chart

    This information is pretty useful, but I will have to check with Eureka to see if he updated the up throw section for Gunner's buff.

    If a character's initial dash is notably faster than their run, foxtrotting will be faster than running. Mega Man's 1.958 dash speed is much faster than his 1.602 run speed so he will foxtrot to close the distance whenever he can. While Sephiroth's range may be pretty similar to Mega Man's, his...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    First, Mega Man has an initial dash of 1.958 which is faster than Sephiroth's initial dash of 1.92 and Duck Hunt's run speed of 1.793. By the way, the main draw of playing a zoner against Sephiroth in neutral is to make Sephiroth do the approaching. Characters with stronger projectiles or faster...

    Mii Gunner’s up throw got buffed to connect better. It has impacted my up throw to dj up air kill confirm percents, but the confirm is still true. I will be making updates soon.

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    @Hippieslayer Samus's charge shot is better than Gunner's charge blast because charge shot can combo into other moves when it isn't fully charged. Gunner's charge blast is better at full charge because charge blast at full charge has low percent combos and the ability to cover most ledge hanging...
