Celeste Celeste is one of the easiest enemy for you. Just try not to stay around her dropped stars (A) because a good Celeste will try to keep you away with this tactic, linger too close and the star will go supernova in your face. Kaiten over her B or run away from it ASAP especially in a teamfight, because Taka MUST NOT be stunned in a teamfight. DO NOT flee in a straight path if she has her ULT ready. Take her out using surprise.

Kestrel Kestrel's CP in her A will be able to take you down. So surprise her will your X-Retsu and she's gone in a few seconds. If she drops her B, then DO NOT run straight as she will stun you with it and kite you down. A good Kestrel will anticipate your escape path and finish you with her ULT. A WP Kestrel is not much of a threat, just don't get stunned or she'll kite you down.

Taka Taka, as annyoing as you using Taka. Really awkward if the both of you Kaiten together over one another, then X-Retsu through each other then Kaku together. In a 1v1 Taka vs Taka fight it actually matters alot about who initiates first, builds the better build, etc. My suggestion? Use the Taka Attack Strategy and hope for the best!
5
Baron Baron is not much of a threat but be careful after he uses his B if he's building WP cuz his Basic Attacks will burst you down. if he's building CP, then as much as possible avoid his A. If he uses his ULT on CP, then get out of your zone.
5
Catherine Catherine is just tanky. If you see her coming with her A activated then just Kaiten over it, save your Reflex Block for Catherine's ULT.
5
Grace Grace will nullify your Crystal damage when she uses her A on you, rendering you unable to kill the enemy Carry. Kaiten over her B and if with a Guild mate or Team mate irl as a stun captain or something, try to stun her while channeling her ULT on her teammate.

Rona Rona, the berserker. Be extra careful of a Weapon Rona. She's is deadly if she can stick to you, her common build is a Serpent's Mask, which grants her lifesteal. Her A slows you down. Her B lets her chase you or get to you. Her ULT reveals you. To escape her A, Kaiten over her and then strike her if you have Mortal Strike or the Aftershock lifesteal available, then Kaku away from her.
6
Alpha Alpha, the "two-lifed" robot. Her A is to be wary of. Her ULT is to be avoided at all cost if she's a Crystal Alpha. For a Weapon Alpha, try not to let her stick to you or else she can stack her B for heals. You can also Kaiten over her ULT as well. Lil' fun fact: Alpha used to be my main.
6
Ardan Ardan's A will slow and reveal you. If he deploys his ULT, wait for him or his teammate to be near the perimeter then Kaiten to get out of it.
6
Baptiste Baptiste will chop you down if he's building a WP. Try to avoid his A is he's building CP. If he uses his B on you, try to get him to the edge so you can Kaiten to get out of the ethereal prison.
6
Gwen Gwen's WP will burst you to pieces. Her A can reveal you, if this happens try not to use your B so fast unless you are confident that you can escape. Try to Reflex Block her ULT or Kaiten it if possible.
6
Joule Joule is tankier from the in front. Surprise her from the behind to take her out. If she's building WP, then try not to let her stick to you. A good Joule will anticipate your escape path and interrupt it will either her A or B. Kaiten over her A as much as possible. If she's building CP, then her source of damage will mostly come from her B, so avoid it too. Just like Celeste, DO NOT flee in a straight path if she has her UlT.

Glaive Glaive, tanky tiger or cat. Crystal Glaive aren't as scary as Weapon Glaive. Do not engage him alone, despite whatever he's building. Try to avoid his A's stun. Take out the Enemy Carry first. To take out Glaive, use the Taka Attack Strategy, DO NOT let him stick to you or else he will lifesteal and all your work is gone. His Cleavings and ULT will reveal you too.
7
Ozo Ozo, self-healing monkey. Avoid him at all cost! Not only he's tanky, he freaking heals! So how do you take him down, you ask. Well you can't, but you can poke him though. Wait a sec, that's how you take him down! Poke him! Until he bows down to the Almighty Taka. But wait. He ain't letting you do that. In order to take him down, try to engage him when you know it's safe. Use the Taka Attack Strategy and repeat, but know when to stop, cuz if his team goes to his aid, you're pretty much gonna bow down to the monkey.
7
Koshka Koshka, pounces to and lock you down until you're dead. Try to not her A to you. Kaiten over her ULT and use the Taka Attack Strategy to take her down.
7
Reim Reim, tanky, self-healing, dishes out damage, all in one. DO NOT let him stick to you, because if he does, he only becomes tankier. However, he's slow compared to Taka, so use that as an advantage. Do not try to take him down yourself. To take him down, it's similar to how you would take Ozo down. Use the Taka Attack Strategy, but beware because if his team goes to his aid, you're pretty much dead. Wait, where did I heard that? Crazy Deja Vu!!
7
Adagio Adagio's A will slow you down.
7
Grumpjaw Grumpjaw's tankiness and B will enable him to take you out easily. Because Grumpjaw's A can only run in a straight line, use this to Kaiten over him or run away from his trajectory. As much as possible try not to get "eaten" by his ULT by Reflex Blocking it or Kaiten over it.
7
Idris Idris can be a pain in the ass for you if played well. Avoid his A because it can reveal you and damage you. His ULT will allow him to stick to you, try to use your boots and when he comes out of your body then use Kaku to escape, if not you're dead unless your captain comes to your aid.

Krul Krul, healing zombie, like, literally. For a Weapon Krul, DO NOT let him stick to you or else you're gonna be the punching bag to him. Weapon Krul: A is not such a big deal unless you're about to die. His B is the biggest deal, he lifesteals and damages you, Kaiten or block it. I know it's hard to do that, that's why I've got a substitute plan: RUN! For his ULT, he would normally be throwing it for your Team Carry, so save you Carry's ass! Kaiten over Krul and dodge his ULT to save your CArry! To take him down, use the Taka Attack Strategy.
8
Blackfeather Blackfeather is like Taka's mortal enemy. He is just as fast as Taka. Try to take him out by surprise. If he's building WP, try to Kaiten over his B. If he's building CP, then avoid his B at all cost.
9
Flicker Flicker, one of the captain heroes that I really hate to play against. Avoid his B at all cost, his slow is the thing preventing you from getting close to his Carry or you running away. If you get caught, Kaiten over him once and Kaku after like 0.5 seconds, then try to use your boots or X-Retsu away to whatever you can withing the range ofc. Obviously don't attack him first. Hover behind your team and Kaku to get to the enemy Carry and then take the Carry out using the Taka attack strategy, if you can't at least you've chipped away 40% of the enemy's health.
9
Petal Petal, munion master. Her Munions are like heat-seeking missiles, especially when her ULT is activated. Weapon Petal is not a worry, but Crystal Petal is when things get serious. Her Munions will cripple your Taka legs with slowness, especially if she has a Frostburn. To counter her Munions, Kaku and run away while using boots, this should throw her Munions off unless she has Flicker on her team... If an Enemy Petal doesn't seem like she knows what she's doing, then she instantly becomes a walking flower for you to slice and dice, no offense.
9
Churnwalker Churnwalker's A will reveal you in Kaku, he will pull and stun you. If possible try to break his chain (A). Kaiten over the pull or stun too, if possible.
9
Varya Varya, her basic attacks will reveal you. If it's a Weapon Varya, then be extra careful when using Kaku. cuz she will destroy your escape. If it's a Crystal Varya, be careful of her A.

Hey guys, SalKee here. This is my first post! Yay...! So please let me know if i write too much on the content cuz I have the tendency to over write alot of stuff.

So... what's this build all about? Well, if you've read the title then you should know. It's a Bursty Taka!
By Bursty, I mean that you should be able to get at least chip away 60%-100% of your Enemy Carry's health. So what makes this build unique is that it actually counters your opponent's shield, cuz if they're not building shield for you, then what are they doing? Anyways, if they have a shield, your Crystal Pierce should still allow you to dish out the damage that you need to take the Enemy Carry out. But if they don't have a shield, well they're pretty much dead if you see them or vice versa.

Now about your defense. If you've notice and you should have, is that this build only builds one of the defense, so you might be a little squishy here. Obviously you can switch the Aegis with Metal Jacket or Atlas Pauldron. You must also rely on Kaku for your safety, Mortal Strikes might help too.

Anyways that's all I have to say. If you've read everything, I guess you must be bored or just reading out of desperation or boredom. But thanks though!
