Strategy/Usage

Although Skull Rider Vars seems bad at first sight due to the knockback and slow ability against Alien enemies specifically (due to the variety of Alien backliners), it can also knockback and slow Zombie enemies, making it so you don't have to use it against Aliens if you think it will be a disadvantage, which it will be most of the time.

However, if you do, note that Skull Rider Vars only has a 50% chance to knockback or slow them and has high range, making it so he won't die as easily if he knocks the frontliner Alien enemies into the backliner Alien enemies, although do note that low ranged Cats may die from this, even if he may not.

Despite Skull Rider Vars's horrible compatibility against Aliens, both starred and unstarred, it's recommended you instead use him against Zombie enemies, who mainly consist of low-range frontline enemies.
