Vector stats and best stance

Vector stats and best stance

Thanks to his metallic nature and powerful thrusters Vector is focused primarily on defense and speed, with an average strength and a slightly lower than average dexterity. Best stance is probably strength.

Vector special tactics 

Neutral game

The rocket lance is incredibly good at creating opportunities, mostly due to the length of the weapon and the force power of the attacks, capable of moving enemies with ease. Remove the opponent from the stage with short rocket lance combos and play around your range. Bow can also be used as the string potential of the weapon is high, and once you dodge read or catch the enemy it can be hard to escape a combo.

Vector Neutral Game Brawlhalla

Do not be afraid to use signature attacks, especially with bow as they are quick and hard to avoid for an inexperienced player. Use the side sig when dealing with a runner, or the dSig for close combat. Playing aggressive is suggested, but if you are in trouble do not shy away from a defensive bait prone playstyle. Baiting can be quite good to remove the enemy from the stage, as both weapons are great at combos and gimping.

Offstage Game

Playing offstage can achieve great results, as both of Vector weapons are quite suited for the floaty playstyle. Baiting the enemy offstage is a great strategy that can lead to knockouts. Rocket lance has attacks that can keep you flying for a lot of time, and aid a lot in returning to stage thanks to the sAir and the recovery.

Vector OffStage Game Brawlhalla

The ground pound of both weapons has a lot of force power, and can kill opponents easily when used on offstage enemies. Play floaty, but if you don’t feel confident attempt to return to stage using the recovery. Rocket lance recovery is longer but more telegraphed, while the bow is fast but shorter. Vector also has the lance nSig that can ride a wall and help you stay afloat more.

Edgeguarding

Vector has a strong edgeguard, mostly due to his set of weapons and signature attacks. The rocket lance excels in 0 to 100 combos and players returning to stage are a great target. The bow is also effective, with sAirs and dAirs that can keep the opponent floating away from the stage.

Vector Edgeguarding Brawlhalla

You can even use it to chase a wall hugger: the hitting angle of the weapon is quite good and will usually throw the enemy downward. Using the ground pound is advised. It has a lot of force. Play around with your signature attacks but do not overextend. The lance dSig is especially well suited.

Vector Signature Moves and special tactics

Rocket lance nSig

Vector uses his plane mounted drill to stab upwards while traveling in an arched motion. If the signature is executed near a wall Vector will instead ride it and travel along it. Rather hard to hit should be used carefully or in a combo.

Rocket lance sSig

Vector hovers in the air and then travels downward in an arched motion hitting everything in his path. Pretty quick and has high force power. Use it on grounded enemies.

Rocket lance dSig

Vector starts floating and then carpet bombs a small area while traveling. Very useful when edgeguarding. While slow,if used correctly it is seriously difficult for an opponent to avoid it.

Bow nSig

Vector shoots a large laser beam upwards with a slightly arched motion. Useful on floaty opponents or in certain edgeguarding situations. 

Bow sSig

Vector rushes forward and releases a flurry of bow strikes on the enemy. Quick and fairly long can be used on grounded enemies or to catch someone after a chase dodge.

Bow dSig

Vector separates his bow in two parts and uses it to strike around him in a quick motion. This signature is useful in close combat thanks to his rapid execution.

Best Vector rocket lance combos and strings

The rocket lance is a string based long range weapon with great aerial capabilities. It excels in air combat thanks to the almost unparalleled mobility and the long reach of the weapon. Lacking options for attacking directly above and below the user, your best option is using the range and keeping the enemy away from your blind spots.

dAir > sSig

Quick combo that can be used from a floaty position on an enemy on stage. Use it as a quick option when dealing with stubborn opponents that like playing on the ground.

dSig

The dSig is particularly useful for edgeguarding. Use it just as the enemy is returning to stage for maximum potential. The carpet bombing is exceptionally long and hits hard. 

gc > sSig / gc > nSig

These two signatures are excellent for getting back on stage while staying safer. Mix and match the two to lead the signature where the enemy will be.
