Taskmaster Boss Strategy (Villain Sector)

Use Ranged Attacks Against Taskmaster

Stay away and use ranged attacks on Taskmaster and let your other heroes deal with the smaller enemies. Using Iron Man with his mini-rockets and Unibeam and Black Widow with her High-Caliber Shots would work well here.

Use Heroics To Deal With High Willpower

Taskmaster has high willpower/health. Use your Heroics whenever necessary to deal with Taskmaster's high Willpower, such as Black Widow's Widows Bite or Hulk's Stranglehold.

Defeat Watchdogs

Taskmaster will summon his Watchdogs whenever the battle goes against his favor.Once the Watchdogs come in, focus on them first before returning to attack Taskmaster.
