Marvel Snap Zero: Unlock, Locations & Combo

Zero is a character card in Marvel Snap with a unique ability of removing abilities from next card played.

Last updated:

While progressing through the game and collecting new cards, you unlock a Zero card in Marvel Snap. Zero disables the abilities of the next card played by the player. But don’t forget, not all abilities are worth having anyways. A lot of cards give high Power but come with negative side effects. Having a Zero card gets rid of these effects for you.

The Zero card can be sourced from Pool 3 of cards. Even though the journey is long, Zero will make your card collection finer. So let’s dive right into it and learn all about the Zero card and all it has to offer. 

Key Takeaways

  • Zero is a character card in Marvel Snap with a powerful ability
  • The next card you play after Zero won’t work its abilities
  • Different combos go along with Zero 
  • Negative effect cards should be played after Zero
  • Some locations are better than others for Zero and some will affect Zero’s ability negatively

Zero Basics In Marvel Snap

  • Type: Character
  • Power: 3
  • Cost: 1
  • Ability: On Reveal: Remove the abilities on the next card you play.

When you play the Zero card, your next card played won’t have its ability to work. The card might seem useless but that’s not the case. If used correctly, it gives you an upper hand.  

How To Collect Zero

If you have not come across the Zero character’s card just yet, you are not on Collection Level 486 or above. After reaching level 486, you unlock Pool 3 of the cards collection. 3rd Pool is the final Pool in the game currently, which means you have to progress a lot before the Zero card is available to be fetched.  

Pool 3 contains 74 character cards, one of them being the Zero card. Once you reach Pool 3, keep playing and upgrading cards. Upgrading cards helps your Collection Level increase, this is the easiest way to collect new character cards. And that’s how you collect Zero in Marvel Snap.

Increasing Collection Level

Boosters can be obtained by winning matches and increasing Collection Level. Keep an eye out for upgrades in the shop too! They can be exchanged with Credits. 

Collect Variant Cards

Best Combos With Zero

Many supervillains in the Marvel universe are a part of Marvel Snap too. They might give you benefits but sadly, they come along with a major blow. Don’t worry, Zero is here to save the day.

Zero only removes the ability of the next card played, the powers are still gonna count. In this case, using high-power cards with negative effects should be played. Such cards are:

Maximus 

On Reveal: Your opponent draws two cards.

If you play Maximus after Zero, your opponent won’t get to draw two cards and you will still get 7 power of the Maximus card.

Typhoid Mary

On Going: Your other cards have -1 Power.

Typhoid Mary is a high-Power card giving off 10 Power in just 4-Cost. But it comes with the disadvantage of losing 1 Power of other upcoming cards. Players avoid picking it but with Zero in Deck, Typhoid Mary is a good pick.

Destroyer

On Reveal: Destroy your other cards.

Destroyer can be a disappointment due to its ability to destroy other cards, but Zero saves the day with its ability. You can gain a huge 16 Power from Destroyer in 6-Cost without losing cards. Zero and Destroyer combo is a must to have in Decks.

Ebony Maw

You can’t play this after Turn 3. Ongoing: You can’t play cards here.

Ebony Maw is one of the least costly cards that come with high power. But its ability to put a limit on playing cards stops players from choosing it. Zero is a solid combo with Ebony Maw, especially for early turns. 

Red Skull

On Going: Enemy cards at this location have +2 Power.

Red Skull gives you 14 Power in just 5-Cost, meaning it is one of the high Power cards. Although, Red Skull benefits your opponent too. Each card enemy has at the location gives them +2 Power. To save yourself from giving away these free points to the opponent, use Red Skull after Zero.

Best Location For Zero

Best Locations To Play Zero At – Image By Us

Locations might not matter much, but a smart player can definitely take advantage of locations with a Zero card. If you run across the following locations while having Zero in your hand, make the choice smartly. The best locations for Zero are:

Machineworld

Description: When you play a card here, add a copy to your opponent’s hand.

Placing your Zero card here gives its copy to your opponent. The opponent most probably won’t have a negative effect card. Meaning they won’t have made a strategy revolving around Negative cards that we have explained above. So, in return Zero will give them a huge setback. Once your opponent loses their points, you get an upper hand with an easy win ahead.

Cloning Vats

Description: When you play a card here, add a copy to your hand.

Play your Zero card in the first turn following a combo card. The second Zero card you claim from this location, you can play it at the 5th turn followed by another combo card. So keep an eye out for the Cloning Vats location and invest in the Zero card. 

Elysium 

Description: Cards cost 1 less

At Elysium, any card costs 1 less. In the early game, take advantage of it and place Zero here. This way you can save your cost for higher-cost cards later on.   

Pleasant Hill

Description: When you play a card here, draw a card.

Pleasant Hill is indeed a pleasant location for cards. It lets you draw a card once you’ve played a card here. If you may wonder how it benefits Zero in Marvel Snap, that’s because there is a chance of drawing your combo card with Zero if you don’t have one in hand already.

Wakanda 

Description: Cards here can’t be destroyed.

If you happen to find Wakanda in one of your matches, try to use your Zero combos here. That’s because your combos can not be destroyed here by any ‘Destroy’ cards that your opponent uses. 

Worst Locations For Zero

Just like the best locations, there are worst locations to look out for too. These locations will ruin the Zero card ability. It is best to avoid these locations during the game. Some worst locations for Zero in Marvel Snap include: 

The Space Throne

Description: Only one card can be here for each player.

Make sure you don’t place your Zero here even accidentally. The Space Throne location has a place for only one card. No combos can work here.

Dark Dimension

Description: Cards played here are not revealed until the game ends.

In Dark Dimension, all the cards played will be revealed when the game ends. That will break Zero’s combo as he removes his ability for the card played in the “next” turn. 

Hell’s Kitchen

Description: Draw a 1-Cost card from your Deck.

In Hell’s Kitchen, your 1-Cost card is drawn first. If you are forced to use your Zero here, your combo will fail. Because most combo cards won’t be unlocked on the second turn. 

Knowhere

Description: On Reveal effects do not happen at this location. 

Since Zero has On Reveal ability, Knowhere is not a place for Zero to go. The Zero card will lose its ability here, hence becoming a useless card. 

The Big House

Description: Cards that cost 4, 5, or 6 can’t be played here.

The Big House fails to let players play cards with 4, 5, or 6-cost. Zero in Marvel Snap can not use its combo here with cards such as Destroyer, Thyroid Mary and Red Skull. Better to avoid this location if you plan to make huge combos.

Best Decks With Zero

Zero in Marvel Snap is an extremely powerful card that can either be your success or your downfall. Having him in any random deck is risky but with our list of best decks for Zero, you will know which groups he perfectly belongs in. 

Red Skull-Zero Deck

Korg is a 1-cost card that gives you an early game advantage. It can slow your enemy down but you should play it first turn.

Elektra is a strong 1-Cost card and is preferred the most in high levels. Use Elektra to slow down your opponent early on.

Another card for the early game. If you need to get rid of Elektra after its use, play Carnage and get 2 Power instead. You also free up some space from the location.

Typhoid Mary gives you 10 Power in 4-Cost but comes with a side effect of removing 1 Power from other cards. Play this card after Enchantress to rid of the negative out-turn. Make sure you play Typhoid Mary in another location than Zero-Sera.

Maximus

On Reveal: Your opponent draws 2 cards.

On playing Maximus, you get 7 Power but your opponent will draw 2 cards. However, Sera lowers Maximus Cost by 1 which is a good deal of 7 Power in 2-Cost.

No need to worry after reading Destroyer’s description. In this deck, make sure to play Destroyer after Zero. Destroyer is 5-Cost too, thanks to Sera.

Armor

Ongoing: Cards at this location can’t be destroyed.

Armor should be placed on your Combo location. Some locations or opponent’s cards destroy a player’s cards, but Armor stops that from occurring.
