RF-027 Jackal
Weapon: Assault Satellite
Arm Part: Heat Rod
Leg Part: Insectroid
Defense Modifier: 1.03
Boost Type: Jump
Boost Count: 4


Jackal is a well equipped rushdown VA who has exceptional air mobility among VAs with the jump-type boost. His Dizzy Boomerang offers him a relatively safe jump-in option, a move to special cancel into from air moves during pressure, and a cross-up tool when used midscreen. As with all insectroid-legged models, Jackal Stamp allows him to close distance quickly and be in the place where he is most dangerous. Heat Grapple and Whip Sting both cover a range which is slightly further than most VAs' normals so it may be rewarding to stay about 1 character width away from your opponent as Jackal.


  • Long range moves
  • Fast
  • Low crouch hitbox


  • Heavy normals are slow
  • Can't reliably knock down
  • Needs to be grounded to beat attacks coming from above
