No UT Challenge question

Post by unwary » Mon May 06, 2019 1:53 am

DO subweapon UTs count against a No UT challenge? I mean using UTs from the bow, incendiary, windmill shuriken.

I'm not sure if there are official rules. None that I know of, anyway. Personally, I'd imagine not, since they don't provide immunity from damage.

Reim makes a great point but IMO, no UT means no UT of any kind.

I'd take the invalidation over fighting Giga, Gold Dragons and Archfiend without Bow UTs >_>
And Water Dragon if he can't be melee killed on MN. With those projectiles, Ghost Fish and that big splash attack :-?

IIRC no UT means that UTs are out of the question, period. Though Gigadeath, the water dragon, the twin dragons, the worm, the single CH10 dragon and the Archfiend are exceptions to that rule because they need to be UT'ed to receive damage. The worm can be done without UTs, but it is almost impossible.

The rest is to be done without UTs.

Re the worm boss, I only played around against him with the DCTF for a couple tries but I was able to cheese him with the DCTF 360Y losing just a grain with OLB no ninpo.
I don't know if you need iframes to stop his charge. Maybe the DS, Lunar, VF and possibly KG could take him on too. I never really looked much into it at the time though. Unwary will no doubt find ways to kick his arse with whatever weapon of choice.

No doubt about that. If he defeats that worm without UTs or 360Y spam, then I hope he gets it on video

No UTs is no UTs. It is harsh, but yeah. That's why it is a challenge run.

Gigadeath can be beaten using regular moves to its head, it isn't easy though so you might need some healing items. Ninpo helps too. >YXY with the Lunar is decent.

Water Dragon can be killed using the Falcon Talons and walking on water.

Worm is very weak to the Dual Katana, using a mixture of 360Y and XYY with Ninpo as a back-up.
(


Without 360Y can be done, you just need massive luck that he doesn't do this ram-attack which you need i.frames to dodge (or be lucky with a cave nearby).

Chapter 10 Dragons can be done using 4 Void Ninpos, plan accordingly.

The only exception that comes to mind is the first Archfiend, I don't think regular arrows will work.
