Omega Strikers is a competitive 3v3 arena sports title in which two teams go head-to-head. There are various positions, but to win you will need to score goals, which typically requires a forward. With multiple characters to choose from, which may leave you wondering who the best character to play forward is in Omega Strikers.
Best Omega Strikers Forwards
While any player can score, it is primarily the forward who will put the core in the goal. Some characters have better kits that make them more suited for this position. Here are our recommendations for the best forwards in Omega Strikers.
Juliette is a strong forward and bruiser, as most of her abilities not only deal a great amount of damage but strike the core. Fiery Fist is a good tool to hit a wide arc, allowing you to be somewhat free with your aim. Flying Phoneix is excellent for closing the gap and giving the core a final push into the goal. Lastly, Flame Flurry can send the core flying but is also great for staggering and knocking out the other team.
Kai is one of the best burst options for forward in Omega Strikers. His Blazing Pace ability gives him haste, which lets him cross the arena quickly. Barrage is great at close range and at a distance, allowing you to fire several projectiles and push the core. Kai’s special Giga Blast, launches a powerful projectile that deals massive damage and knocks opponents away from its center point. This is helpful for clearing the path and letting you score the goal.
Estelle excels at staying back slightly and then swooping in for the score. Piercing Shot should be your main tool for picking up goals. Time your use of it to snipe the core and push it through. Rose Warp is good for avoiding attacks and closing the distance to the core while also dealing damage to nearby enemies. When precision isn’t as important, Crystal Thorns is great for hitting a wide area of effect, striking enemies and the core.
Drek’Ar is a great forward in that he doesn’t necessarily score but takes out defenders. His Xeno Cloak ability lets him turn invisible and move faster, letting Drek’Ar move around the arena undetected. This sets him up for Lock and Load, which is devastating up close and can drop enemies quickly. Finally, Molten Bolt is great for slowing enemies down and letting you push forward, hopefully to an unprotected goal.
X is an interesting character in that he is primarily a melee character. This makes him perfectly suited to the forward position as he can harass defenders while also striking the goal. Bell Ringer is great for clearing a wide area around yourself and forcing opponents back. This opens up a perfect route for Bull Rush, where you can dash forward and hit the core. X Maximus!, X’s special, increases his size and strength, allowing you to perform the forward role even better.
