He's vulnerable on the way up, and if they're superjumping outside the lances they're safe. Pretty safe way to DHC him in.

The Basics

Keep up pressure with the Kinetic Card and the jab Slash if you can. If they superjump, throw a Trick Card. If you hit them with an AAA, throw a Trick Card at them on their way down. Run away with super jump Kinetic Cards if you need to rest, chip, or let your team recover.

His p throw is quick and can be used to tick throw people. You can otg off his throw in the corner.

Advanced Strategy

Fun Stuff

Float Mode

Dash and then immediately do a Trick Card. Gambit will interrupt his dash in the middle of the hop while he's still in midair.

Escape Glitch

Do the A2.png snapback and then do a Cajun Strike to the left wall. Gambit will leave and never come back.

This is banned in tournaments. This bug was fixed in the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game.
