Falco Marth

One of the most frustrating parts of any Fox or Falco’s game is their laser games. This can keep you out, while zoning and pressuring you from afar. Most players don’t know how to combat this, and thus see their percentages trickle upward while their opponents wait for the opportune time to kill.

However, against Falco, there is one possibility against laser that a lot of players never consider–eating the laser. If you take the laser from a close enough range, you can actually punish everything Falco might do next just by reading his next attack properly. As such it is much more optimal to eat a laser to get your damage in, which essentially neuters that aspect of their game.
