  • Sorry that this month's upload took a while to come out, but I hope the wait was worth it! This is the most amount of work I've put into a video so far. New techniques, two weeks of struggling with keyframes, and a LOT of images. But now it's here and I hope you enjoy it!
    A quick shout-out to SunburnedAlbino for the idea to make this ranking. Go check him out, he makes good stuff. vnclip.net/user/Sunburned Albino

    Here’s the thing about lobber, it’s not really for normal uses, utility is basically a must for it and knowing specific tricks and knowledge about the projectile itself. For example: When a boss is about to pop up on screen, (Beppis phase 4 transition and root packs phase 2 transition) Stand where they will be and shoot directly up. The lobbers will keep bouncing and hit the boss for a lot of early damage. It’s called a lobber trap and it’s essential for speedrunning.

    Whetstone isn't completely useless. I don't use it to attack non-background bosses, but it's helpful if your getting sandwiched and your only exit route will land you on a minion, so use Whetstone and get to safety. Ironic that the only damage dealing charm is more useful for defensive reasons.

    Spread EX is amazing for background bosses that stand still like Root Pack phase 3, Beppi phase 4, etc. Since you can get inside their hitbox without taking damage, you can easily land all 8 shots, as well as the main Spread being able to instantly hit all its shots if you're standing right in them means you can easily build up a ton of damage.

    Personally I disagree with your opinion on chalices heart special. It isn’t all that useful in the base game. But it is really useful whilst trying to S rank bosses, especially ones you aren’t consistent with. And yes heart ring is good, it does force you to play as Cuphead forcing you to use the borderline broken features of chalice.

      @Adi Salihovic but you get super for shooting and getting parries unlike heart ring and with heart ring you don't charge cards when you parry. I don't saying that heart ring is bad. Actually is probably better than super art 2 but this one is not that bad too

      @Andrew Cheng not usually,they just stay in the same place most of the time. But for the ones that DO move… like you said,aim down and shoot,or just point up and face the opposite direction of the boss, (if it’s the bee,then good luck you’re probably screwed.)

  • Dimitri Dionissiou
    Dimitri Dionissiou 2 tháng trước +7

    Roundabout is better than twist up because Roundabout functions in basically the same way, is more intuitive to use, and consistently deals the same amount of damage as max damage Twist Up, which fundamentally is less consistent as the three hits don’t always connect. If the boss is above you, just aim down. I put Twist Up in useless due to the existence of Roundabout. All I’m going to say is first try to beat all bosses with roundabout (especially Rumour Honeybottoms and the third phase of the Snow Cult). And at the point where all the Twist Up hits connect, when you’re standing right next to them, just use Spreadshot. Also, Miss Chalice Super 2, the Shield Pal, is super useful for getting S Ranks.

  • Andrew
    Andrew 3 tháng trước +135

    I almost wanted to say Twist Up was an A tier, but it was honestly one of my favorites to get from Divine Relic, the others being Crackshot and Roundabout of course. Also giving an honorable mention to converge for being a fantastic shot against the first three bosses of Phantom Express. Seriously guys, if you want to S Rank, use Converge and Crackshot

      @Laserbeamthatplaysgames It is bad, and I am actually a really good Cuphead player
      - it does below average damage 90% of the time because of how the bullets split
      - It’s extremely situational
      - It’s awkward to use
      - It can leave you wide open to hits due to how it basically requires you to lock in place

    I couldn’t be more upset about lobber being in B while twist up being in S. Btw, I totally respect your opinion, I’m just gonna go on a tirade here of why I disagree so strongly. Lobber is better than you think. Particularly when paired with roundabout, it becomes one of the most versatile weapons in the game. It has a lot more range than you think and can also just be used as a really good up-close tank weapon. It’s also really good for pre-loading damage before a boss phase begins. Twist up is just… such a chore. Sure you can get successful hits with it if you learn how to aim with it, but what’s the point? It doesn’t even have a tanky a DPS. It certainly doesn’t belong in the same tier as roundabout.

    In my opinion, super 2 (chalice) is really good! Because of crackshot you only need to Focus on dodging, not damage. Super 2 (chalice) really helps with that. And plus, twin heart lowers your damage, and some bosses don’t have enough parry’s for heart ring to be useful.

    Only one problem with crackshot(I did the entire game with it), technically two. This is my favorite weapon by the way
    One is that it targets, not homes so fast things might avoid it(don't fight Blind Specter with it), like the lone Yankee Yipper on expert
    But my main issue was that it has trouble on hitting minions directly above or behind you. Croaks flies on expert, Beppi's balloon dogs, Devil's minions(only case on under you because I would land on them a lot for the hand trick), Mortimer's Popsicles, the Animal Crackers, and ESPECIALLY those stupid expert jellybeans. I ended up having to lift my character's arm to the sky so it would scatter everywhere. Crackshot does wonders on Glumstone and Moonshine Mob though

    • The Owner of This Account
      The Owner of This Account 3 tháng trước +2

      @Deadshade2500 yeah, that would help. There just some instances where you don’t have time to lock on(expert Mortimer Freeze is on crack).
      But Crackshot is still an S tier weapon to me, and almost always my go to in fights

    • The Owner of This Account
      The Owner of This Account 3 tháng trước +1

    10:32 Parrying the Crackshot EX also counts as a parry for the Heart Ring charm, and I'm pretty sure it counts as a parry for ranking as well. In comparison to parryable level objects such as the springs in Murine Corps phase 1 and the horse skull bells in Gnome Way Out phase 3.

  • Anthony Oliver
    Anthony Oliver 3 tháng trước +38

    I’m surprised you didn’t rank shield pal higher, you literally can have 6 or more hits in a battle, it make hp ranks way easier, it lasts until you get hit, it allows you to take risks without needing to worry about taking too many hits, and it makes later parts easier, since that is when you need the hits most!

  • Courage Samas
    Courage Samas 2 tháng trước +2

    By a technical standpoint yes technically the charge charge shot deals the most damage but if you were to take 10 seconds or around two charged shots to the conversion conversion shot then you would get more DPS from the converge for a higher bullet outtake so technically yes the charge shot gives the most damage per singular bolt but converge deals the most damage overall

  • The Animator
    The Animator 3 tháng trước +39

    7:54 personally, I don’t think twist-up is terrible but probably the second worst weapon in the game (not counting uncharged shot). So it’s idea is that it shoots in arc but shoots 3 at a time. However this means that even if the enemy is above you, you still have to get all 3 shots in like spread to do the most damage. This means that they have to be above you or at a specific angle or it would probably be better to use spread, you also have to stay there for all shots to go on. It’s definitely not a bad weapon but I would say C or B tier. Also lobber deserves a lot worse than C. It is hard to aim for almost every enemy and even then can’t really be aimed and doesn’t do enough damage to make it worth it.

    Charm: 2 hit point (unless I use the genie then smoke dash) and Astral cookie if I want to play as Chalice.

      I fould it somewhat misleading and hyperbolic. Ranking weapons is arbitrary if you don't go into enough depth with burst damage vs cycle damage, you don't have figures for most weapons, for comparison, and don't talk enough about utility vs potential.
      You left certain mechanics of the roundabout and lobber that they can accumilate projectiles while boss is off screen, which gives more damage potential, for starters.
      Also number of projectiles is relevant bc if a smaller enemy is blocking the boss, you lose more damage potential if a stronger projectile is wasted vs a weaker one. A lot missed imo, but good effort. 🙃

    I will love to give my opinion on twist up.
    It’s decent. It’s very situational to use since it shoots upwards and you have to angle it in a very awkward way to hit some bosses. It may not be that hard, but it can be extremely hard to try to do while dodging attacks. You are way better off using Roundabout to help save yourself from pointless aiming. The only thing I guess I can give twist up is that it’s ex does good damage.

    Imo chalice's second super is the best in the game if you're trying to get S rank on bosses. Prior to the DLC release, I only had around 5 S's total in the game, and after becoming familiar with chalice and using her second super, I was able to S-rank every non-plane boss in the game. For plane bosses I used cuphead with the divine relic charm and was able to s-rank all of them

      @Beatboxing leprechaun It can be great. Super 1, for example, locks you out of using your regular projectile (can't shoot both at same time). With super 2 on cuphead or mugman, you can wetstone a boss on super and shoot projectiles at same time,, doing massive damage.

    I think the whetstone is really good since it kills stuff, if you use it on the bag the puppets throw in phase two of Glumstone the giant, the phase becomes a joke, same with phase 1, 2, and the coins on phase 3 against ribby and croaks, if ya ask me, id give it an S tier because its so broken, i was originally gonna say A tier because it only can be used on the first parry, but then i realized that fights with about 1 or 2 attacks can barley even be called that with it, like all 9 bosses on the king dice board, and the angel and demon, it even works in plane levels, cause its a charm

  • Jaunteru
    Jaunteru 2 tháng trước +1

    Spread is incredible as a secondary shot, for any time you have a chance at closing the gap. There's no shot wind up is S and charge shot isn't because of not being able to hold a charge while dashing, both have the issue of having one detracting weakness that makes them balanced (charge shot needs charging+can't dash with it, wind up requires good aiming and that all projectiles hit, akin to spread shot). Besides, something that wasn't considered is that charge shot lets you gather damage while looking away from the boss, as you can charge a shot while dodging their attacks. Whetstone is surprisingly decent in airplane levels, as you can use the nuke's invincibility to throw out some damage with your parries.
    Besides this, great vid

    Twist Up should be A+ tier because the other two S tiers do work on every boss. Whetstone can be very useful in destroying gnomes and other short enemies and acting as a makeshift double jump/air stall. Not to mention the only charm worth using in planes besides Coffee.

    Lobber ex will deal double the damage if it hits something before the enemy,like if it hits a pumpkin right before hitting the skeleton in phantom express

    Whetstones main ability in my opinion is being able to parry obstacles like enemies spawned in a boss or parrying a boss for a bit more air time (enemies don't need explaining and for a air time sample looked up "rare footage of whetstone actually being useful") another use I've found for whetstone is bosses where the hitboxes don't hurt you or you can easily parry the boss without getting hit. (The biggest example I can think of is the devil his first phase you can parry off the little devils for dodging tactics and you can maybe parry the devil's head but I'm phase 2 you are able to basically parry anything due to his eyes taking up a big portion of the screen using whetstone and roundabout/spread and going ham on the devil will make the fight quicker and is really good in phase 3 for doding the bats and bouncing off the eyes to avoid obstacles you can also use it on the "henchman" demon bats or whatever they are and roundabout to kill one quickly if you're a little daring)
    To summarize
    I beat the devil on expert via whetstone so imma say it's underrated

    Well, consider me one of the 4. I recognized early on that Smoke Bomb was WAY too strong, and I saw P.Sugar as a crutch, so Whetstone was pretty much the only charm I used through the whole game. I find it very good for its utility, since if a boss charges you, you can simply parry the boss itself to get over it. Also does a Lobber and a half worth of damage, which can add up if you're clever with it.

    Uncharged charged has ONE use and that's saltbaker phase 2, using a charged shot and 2 uncharged can kill the salt shakers. Also as someone who s ranked the entire game TWICE I heavily disagree with your converge ranking, if your playing miss chalice you can just hold down the lock button and only move via jumping and dashing, it also is REALLY GOOD at dealing with minions

    I think I might've treated the roundabout too harshly, not that I thought it was trash, but I always used charge shot instead of roundabout instead for about every boss it was useable against. The only time I can think of using roundabout was Beppi The Clown, but other than that, I've really looked it down. This video inspires to me to replay Cuphead and use roundabout more. Thanks Potato King!

    As a charge shot enjoyer I have found *1* use for the uncharged variant
    During Saltbaker's second phase if you hit one of the shakers with a charged shot and an uncharged shot it does enough damage to send the shaker flying
    It's faster than charging another shot so I use it to get through that phase faster

  • hubor

    I actually love the lobber. I've gotten insane value with it at some times. I originally threw it on as a meme in my most recent playthrough, but it does seeious damage to anything you can hit it with. It's range is really good compared to what people say about it, and Run and Guns can become a joke with the Lobber, and it actually works on most bosses excluding the platform bosses. Plus, it's EX is extremely good. It truly shines there, but the main consensus is that it's useless anywhere else. It may be horrible for aiming upward, but horizontal or downward bosses can be made swiss cheese with it. The B Tier is well deserved.

  • Dylan Perry
    Dylan Perry 2 tháng trước +1

    I don't really agree with twist ups placement. I agree with most things you said about it, but the fact is that every single boss you mentioned is easier to hit with roundabout. Twist up is a worse version of roundabout because it hits less consistently and is harder to use, DESPITE doing about the same damage. Doing the same damage is not an upside, it is a hindrance because it is harder to hit all three projectiles, even if you are good at using it. For this reason, I would never use twist up. Ever*. There is no situation where twist up could be used where roundabout wouldn't do a better job (*except for captain brineybeard and angel and demon).
    I also don't agree with the placement of invincibility and shield pal, because if you are going for a high rank, it is much harder to not lose health then to defeat the boss in time. And even if you are going for damage, it's much more efficient to just use EX attacks.

  • Anijay
    Anijay 3 tháng trước +8

    I agree with most things you say in this list. The only things I would rank higher is super art 2 for mrs challice. The shield pal can give you a extra hit point and not to mention you can use it as much as you want. Mrs chalice has a fantastic super art 2 and 3 and I would put super art 2 for mrs challice in S tier. And I would rank her first super art lower as well with cupheads last super art. I also think the twist up is a ok weapon.

    If you lock on with super 3 you can get a Jojo reference and keep dmg on the enemy without having to worry about getting hurt. Because super arts do such high constant dmg it slows bosses down and when you can keep the dmg constant as possible you might get through the phase just like that.
    Note: This version of Giant Ghost (Giant Ghost Jojo) is terrible for autoscrollers you could always fall off but if you wanna still use it in bosses like Grim and Rumor you will just have to be REALLY careful
    Side Note: This is one of the most damaging Weapons at Cuphead's, Mugman's, and Ms Chalice' disposal alongside it being Charge (Charged), And Crackshot (With Turret) if you put that as your set bosses become butter to your knife. Also the charm.. idk.. that's on you most charms are fine just don't use something bad and ruin the build.

  • Kyson

    Whetstone can be used for A LOT when paired with the divine relic.
    First, Ms. Chalice’s normal jump is shorter than Cuphead or Mugman’s.
    Second, if a enemy that can be damaged rolls towards you, you can use whetstone to parry over that enemy.
    Third, you can save yourself when falling.
    And lastly, you can use whetstone to completely juke attacks. For example, if you’re in-between a object that can’t be damaged
    and a object that CAN be damaged (like a boss or a boss’s minions), you can parry off said damageable object and avoid the attack.
    And yes, whetstone (in my opinion), is useful (at least for me).
