Is there ANY way to beat a competent Deathstroke with Grundy?

I'm not saying Spam, I mean Deathstroke is broken, I can beat most of them, but for the ones that know what they're doing, fighting them with Grundy is pure hell. MB swamp hands? Guns will tear through that armor in no time. Walking Corpse? Really only works in the corner. Just regular swamp hands? They'll jump over it and guns > hands anyway. Block and dash in? Sure I do enjoy losing half my life to chip, only for them to run away again. It's an incredibly annoying, albeit legitimate strategy that I just can't get around.

Since competent Deathstrokes won't spam sword flip mindlessly I can't really rely on that. I have tried getting them in the corner but they always find a way to jump out (usually because of interactibles). I know Deathstroke hate is old but I just recently got the game. Is there any way for Grundy to really deal with this? Or will I just have to switch characters when I see him?

You gotta play this one safe and patient. Land a defense chain as soon as you can and then block and walk forward until you see an opening. Cut the stage off on him and don't let up once you have him in the corner. Grundy's air grab works wonders against a lot of corner interactables. I usually Wcc into either a pain chain or 112 MB cleaver right off the bat. You want to be in his face running mixups as much as possible.

I'm having trouble against Deathstroke too with Lobo. It's just impossible to apply pressure to him because his sword flip wakeup is ridiculously good.

Well, unfortunately that's because Lobo, is the worst character in the game.

Well I have figured out that everybody in the game has an armored launcher now, even Lobo, I just use it to punish wakeups for a full combo now. Works everytime.
