So, I usually started the level with my original 5 lives, 3 missiles (which I don’t like to use) and a max upgraded (level 8) Neutron Gun.
Every time I get to an asteroid wave on a hard Daily Challenge or late waves in Weekly Challenge, I almost always lose a life or two.
Once I got to a hard asteroid wave with Utensil Poker. I went through a couple of extreme close calls, but survived without losing a life.
Should I switch my starting weapon to Utensil Poker? Personally, I think that Neutron Gun is still stronger (does higher damage), but Utensil Poker is helpful on this asteroid wave, Chicken Rings, some other epic waves, Chicken Multiplicity, infinite enemies spawn by bosses and that fork weapon never overheats (if you fire manually).
I know that Utensil Poker is cheaper than the Neutron Gun, but should I use Dimensional Phase-out instead?
