How to Complete the Black Shadows Challenge
To complete Nico’s Black Shadow Challenge in Marvel’s Midnight Suns, you need to play her abilities correctly to eliminate the four Whispers in front of you, then destroy the black crystal. Nico holds some of the most unique abilities of all the heroes in the game, which is why it can be a bit confusing knowing which card to play and when to play it. Here’s what you need to do.
You’ll want to start by redrawing the Blood Magic card in order to get Double Up. Then, cast Double Up to get a copy of Witchfire. Afterward, cast your other Double Up card to get a copy of Witchstorm. Now, use your last redraw on the Empower card to get Blood Magic back. Next, Play Blood Magic to strengthen yourself. Now you’ll want to play Witchstorm to attack the enemy furthest left. Then, use Witchstorm to attack the enemy furthest right.
Next, you’ll want to cast Witchfire, which will randomly kill two enemies. Then, play Witchfire again to kill the two remaining enemies. Now with the enemies gone, all you have to do is play Crack the Sky to destroy the black crystal and complete the Black Shadows Challenge. Doing so will reward you with the Legendary Crack the Sky card plus the Midnight Sun combat suit for Nico.
