Strider’s Bounty Hunter Rival Solo Returns As A Boss

Capcom’s new Strider game has an old foe. Solo, a bounty hunter that chased Strider through all of the other Strider games, is an enemy in the upcoming Strider game.

Solo (new Strider)


While Solo has his usual armor, he has different attacks. The Volcano attack warns players before it shoots a blast of energy upwards. Solo also has a laser cannon and can place bombs on the screen. So far, it doesn’t look like Solo has his flamethrower.

    I think, it’s safe to assume, that this boss will be fighting with Strider… solo.

      Now, everyone please look at the last picture. It says “1st encounter”. In 2nd encounter he might fight Strider… solo.

      and now the sound effect

        Thank you. I lost my sunglasses.

        And about sound effect…
        I already have Jeremy above.

    I really want to support this game, especially with how little side-scrollers on console there are. But I can’t trust Double Helix. Just recently with KI we got burned so I don’t know what to think.

    • colorblindnightmare

      I apologize for this, but I’m not sure I read that correctly. Were you praising KI or bashing it?

      • Devinja

        Bashing Killer Instinct for its awful sneaky netcode, which as it is currently, unplayable in my eyes at the moment.

        • Göran Isacson

          Ah man, the netcode is bad? Not that I even own an Xbox One, but most things I had heard about that game said it had solid mechanics. Of course, that was in previews which hadn’t really tested out the online play to any greater capacity…

          • Devinja

            Beinga freegame no reason not to checkIit out. Gamewas applauded at having great netcode but we just discoveredIit doesnt lag because Iit will “gloss” over the Iputs and fill Iin on the other side. Resulting I 2 seperate fightsthat can countas a win on each side.

          • Göran Isacson

            Oooh. Yeah I can imagine that’s not making the FGC very happy. Sounds like they should have let it bake a bit more, rather than rush it out for release.
