A complete summary of Mii Gunner’s performance in Super Smash Bros. 4 can be found on the character’s information page. It includes strengths and weaknesses, AI quirks, and an archive of tournament representation and results.
Stats & Bonus Effects
Mii Gunner’s best equipment setup balances Attack and Defense (+50 Attack / +90 Defense / -20 Speed) at the cost of Speed. In terms of bonus effects, Improved escapability and two Auto-heal capability skills are essential.
Mii Gunner benefits from the Gunner Missile and Arm Rocket custom moves. Gunner Missile is a versatile projectile that gives Mii Gunner a great camping option, while Arm Rocket serves as a superior recovery move.
An amiibo becomes strongest if it is mirror matched all the way to Level 50. This is done to teach the AI which moves to rely on; after reaching Level 50, it will use this training as a base and expand upon it with matchup experience. While training your amiibo, do not play aggressively or go off-stage; instead, remain grounded and keep the following moves in mind:
- Neutral options: forward tilt, down tilt, forward smash, neutral special (Charge Blast), and side special (Gunner Missile). The Mii Gunner’s forward tilt has good reach and deals decent damage, but has a bit of ending lag. Down tilt is surprisingly powerful and is best used at point blank. Forward smash has a very long hitbox, but has weak knockback and is unreliable as a KO move. Charge Blast is the Mii Gunner’s strongest projectile, and can be used in a number of different ways. Make sure to always have a full Charge Blast ready to use. Gunner Missile is functionally identical to Samus’ missile and is stronger when you input it like a smash attack.
- Main KO moves: down smash and neutral special (Charge Blast). Full Charge Blasts are the Mii Gunner’s most optimal method of KOing opponents. It can be used from medium to far range to great effect. Down smash is an option for close-ranged combat, and hits on both sides.
