Character Power – Living Weapon (Circle/B)

Deadshot can change the ammo fired from his wrist cannon:

  • Incendiary Ammo (Circle/B) – Adds damage over time
  • Explosive Ammo (Back + Circle/B) – Does additional damage and causes a knockdown
  • Poison Ammo (Forward + Circle/B) – Drains the opponent’s super meter

Supermove – Never Miss (R2+L2/RT+LT)

Deadshot takes out his rifle and brings it down on his opponent’s head. This move is bloackable, and Deadshot needs to be close the enemy. If successful, Deadshot will throw his rifle into the air and will then begin to pummel his opponent. He grabs the rifle as it falls from the sky, sling it over his shoulder, and shoot his opponent in the head.
