A spy with a certain set of skills.

As a master spy, Black Widow is trained with a certain set of skills.

10. Perforator

Black Widow is a master assassin, capable of both range and melee combat. She has all sorts of skills that the player can take advantage of, but there’s a few that you need to unlock as soon as you can as the game progresses.

First being the Perforator, which is the charge attack of the High-Caliber Shot. This skill can hit multiple enemies at once when lined up correctly, as well as break through guards. It won’t matter if they’re shielded, they’ll get hit hard.

Why Perforator Is Great

  • Breaks block
  • Can hit multiple enemies when aimed correctly

9. Stun Rounds

Performing Takedowns is a must when playing Marvel’s Avengers, as you can do a large amount of damage in a short period of time via combat animations. Black Widow is among the easiest characters to set up Takedowns.

One of the ways she can set up Takedowns is by using the Stun Rounds skill, which increases the Stun damage by 15% when using Full-Auto.

Why Stun Rounds Is Great

  • High Stun damage
  • Sets up Takedowns easily

8. Ammo Overload

Black Widow’s guns have infinite ammo, so you don’t need to worry about having to pick up ammo off the ground like other games. However, she still needs to reload her guns.

You can avoid that for a little bit by extending the capacity of her normal guns by 4 rounds with this skill, which will help in the long run when fighting faraway enemies.

Why Ammo Overload Is Great

  • Adds 4 more rounds to your pistols
