PC POST #154: Marvel Heroes MMO - Punisher Insight!

posted by @Ivo


After some time testing, i think i can finally do some basic review about the character.
This character isn't available for free you have to buy the Starter Pack or if he drops in-game.

When you buy the starter pack you have 2 suits to use: Modern Punisher and Classic Punisher.

Modern Punisher.

Classic Punisher.

You got two more suits that you can buy it on store or if you buy the Ultimate pack..

Trench Coat Costume.
War Torn Costume. (Sorry about the cursor).

The last costume "War Torn" i don't remember seeing it in any Punisher issue and i pretty read almost every Punisher issues.

Next section i will talk about the bars of status, we got Health or HP, Spirit, Vengeance and the Experience bar.

Health - is to show your health condition;

Spirit - Some powers uses spirit as a source. If you use them you will see the points decreasing;

Vengeance - If you increase your killing spree the more points you will earn for this bar. Which is good because instead of you spending spirit you can spent vengeance.. It's basically free source;

Experience - shows how much experience you have to level up.

Now we are going to talk about the "Powers" in this section we got "three main trees": Firepower, Assault and Explosives. The last two uses Spirit and in some special ocasions it will use Vengeance.


Rifle Shot - Fire a shot that damages the first enemy in its path
Driven by Vengeance (passive power) - Your powers occasionally cost vengeance instead of spirit. This power allows you to use your secondary resource bar instead of spirit when you use powers that require spirit.
Deadly Barrage - Hold down the hotkey to fire a continuous stream of bullets.
Armor Piercing Shot - Fire a shot that pierces all enemies in its path. Hold down the hotkey to increase damage.
Lock and Load - Regain some spirit.
Shotgun Blast - Blast enemies in front of you.
Impact Shot - Fire a powerful shot that knocks back an enemy.
Flachette Blast - Blast enemies with shrapnel, causing them to bleed.


Steel Toed Kick - Put your boot into enemies in front of you, knocking them back.
Quick Escape - Roll out of combat, stunning enemies in your path.
Pain Tolerance (passive power) - Pain don't hurt. This power increases your defense.
Killer Instinct (passive power) - Deal extra damage to enemies that aren’t attacking you, and gain vengeance when striking fear into your enemies hearts.

Cold Blooded Crusader (passive power) - When you defeat an enemy, nearby enemies flee in fear.

Combat Lunge - Lunge into combat, stunning all enemies at the end of your movement.
Show No Mercy - Ruthlessly stab an enemy that is stunned for knocked down.


Explosive Rocket - Launch a rocket that explodes when it hits.
Flashbang Grenade - Launch a grenade that stuns enemies in the blast.
Proximity Mine - Throw a bomb that explodes when an enemy approaches it.
Punisher The Guilty - Attach a bomb to an enemy, who flees in FEAR until the bomb explodes.

Chemical Mine - Throw a bomb that explodes when the enemy approaches it, slowing and weakening each enemy in the blast.

Sticky Mine - Throw a bomb that explodes when the enemy approaches it, trapping each enemy in the blast in sticky glue.

Flamethrower Blast - Hold down the hotkey to spray enemies with lingering fire.


Activate when low on health or defeated to rise up with a mighty vengeance that terrifies your enemies. I love this ultimate. This power gives +20% damage and defense, and 25% chance to cause fear for 2.5 seconds.

 I have made a video to show you the powers in-game, only one power is left, it's the sticky mine.

And that's it, it is fun playing with my favorite character from comics. But there is flaws, specially in the "Explosives" section, i think developers should increase the damage for the explosives and add some mobility of the character.

If you want to finish the story mode it's sufficient but if you play in PVP things will get very difficult and the Punisher will be like a sitting duck.

Later on, when you finish the game you will unlock some levels to do with an increased difficulty. Sometimes in story mode you could beat some levels and bosses by yourself and now you're forced to hang in with a group.
