I see most people do capa tunes on her and over range with multiple icicle guns. Is there any better/cheaper weapon setup for someone with limited resources/parts available? (I can buy icicle guns but prefer no capa tunes)

u can always just use her as a single gun, and use her icicles as a quick Q switch when fighting airs or something

Cool, thanks guys! How is Icy doing compared to other single shooters like Lumiera Holx?

Unrelated but these April 1st avatars are qt.

Haven't seen a non-alpha GL yet..and even if there were some, most probably they're not noticeable.
Rouche am can be a choice in place of a second gun set. I think it's possible to build a 40/31 with a burst missile amj+rouche am and one set of her gun, without tuning any capa. And yes you can dunk her str. to 0

I used to have non Alpha GL and it did work rather well when she was released, but alpha is always easily better, and certainly better when core tunes exist, they just removed the reason to keep many bots as non alpha.
Plus with other changes to the Meta the advantages of her gun diminished further and further and then with airs getting more and more range made the single gun life just too hard for the little profit it had (even worse when you can get +100HP from a cart).
Is GL even a thing beyond Mexicans and Lagtinos which are the only ones that can make the icicles hit due to their lag pretty much turning the weapon into insta hits.

You can do her alpha with single wizdon soul (icicle + zook)
and 2 burst missile AMJs.

I also like to use 1x zook + 2x icicles.

No capa tunes or any heavy tunes needed on any of the 2 setups.

Thank you very much guys!

I still don't understand how lag works. Why are some people warping like they are in a DBZ fight and hit things with Icicle easily but when I'm lagging, I just stand there taking lots of damage and die.

This means you have bad connection with the server.

I don't know what parts u have but i made a simple build with Amateus AM because Have 290 range like Icy weapons, also because u get one for free when u start the game (if u dont pick it u can just buy one with Uc). Capa tunes are needed to enhance the weapons.

You can also Buy the Icy wool With the DX coin to get a 2nd gun. Icy Wool is the same as Icy GL but u cant add AmJ (good choice if u want to do it single shooter) or if u want to make it alpha without the Amj (u can add hardbomber BS for almost  the same cost of the 2 Burst AmJ)

Thanks! I do have hard bomber bs but is it a good substitution for burst missile amj (I feel like it does not hit that hard)

Yes, Hard Bomber BS is fine too...

Also, please, stop suggesting these single shooter builds for Icy,
we all know it sucks...

Hard bomber BS have a good stun rate (not Like Moray, but Ok). It have 10 force, but shoots 4 missiles at the same time so it's 10x4.
