This Metal Bear is considered to be the quintessential Metal Grappler due to its impressive offensive and defensive capabilities. However, it does suffer from low speed. The best approach for using Metal Bear is a "head-on" approach; that is, attack your opponent without worrying too much about the damage you take. A system overload rarely happens to this robo; it takes three shots from the Sniper Gun to down it.
In addition, you could always follow what Max does and aim for a Long Ranged set. If you choose to do this, you should use a gun like the Rayfall Gun or the Sniper Gun. Metal Bear's high offensive stat should be able to tear its opponents apart with ease.
Metal Bear's Charge is VERY powerful, but it does take a while to start up, so you might want to use it while the opponent is distracted or while the opponent is stunned. If you can hit with it, you'll definitely hurt the opponent VERY badly.
As for leg parts, try equipping the Stabilizer Legs or the Ground Legs. The former will boost your acceleration, allowing for nimble movement, while the latter will allow you to air dash close to the ground without too much worry about landing lag. This will help offset Metal Bear's lack of speed.
|This is a long range set, so this might be countered by a Stun Gun. For those who lack such tools, this is a decent set. Keep on firing the Rayfall Gun while on the Ground and use a jump shot right afterwards in order to fire 8 shots at once. Use the Freeze Bomb to freeze the opponent in place and the Seeker Pod G to keep them moving, making the opponent more likely to get hit by a Freeze Bomb. The Ground Legs allow Metal Bear to Air Dash quickly without the fear of intense landing lag when he needs to escape the opponent.|
|Legs let you get away very fast, while the body is very resistant to damage. The Stun Gun lets you mash the attack button and will take down any robo quickly.|
