One good shot from either of these guys is enough to turn the tide. Both have advantages with their respectable weaponry but the terrain mostly favors Tasky regarding munitions as Cyclops will be holding back quite a bit like usual. He may wreck some of the cover but so will Task with those explosive arrows and he is accurate enough to get them near the target. However, Cyclops is very fast on the draw, is very accurate himself, and one shot is all he needs to turn the tide himself since they start visible. Taskmaster can't afford to be cocky and arrogant here which he is quite often. Cyclops doesn't have a prayer up close though if it some how came to that but with both plentiful long range weapons here, I doubt it will come to that.

As soon as this battle enters "Close Range" Cyke is done because Task is too acrobatic and fast for Cyke. At a Range it is anyone's game. I'll go with Cyclops on this on because he wont let Task get close.

Taskmaster. He his more skilled and more agile as he will eventually outmaneuver Cyclops.

I'm guessing morals are off, since you said "Win by KO/Death/Incapacitation". In this case, I'm giving it to Cyclops. Otherwise, if they were on, Taskmaster would probably win.

If Scott keeps him away he takes it, essentially if he looks at one of his arrows it's getting blasted away. And I don't think he can curve arrows lol. Any time the pulls a pistol he gets blasted and I don't think bullets can travel through his optic blast. I don't think he can rush with his shield either but if there is a chance he gets close Scott is done for. Even with his extensive h2h training he can't fight an experienced weapons specialist and win. I think Scott has it even with all that cover at 250 feet if scot wants to he's gonna blow it all away until there's no cover left.

I'm pretty confident Cyclops can tag Taskmaster.

It would suck if Cyclops produced a concussive hit Taskmaster's explosive arrows. X_X Bad day for Taskie.

As for the thread, I'm going to say Taskmaster for the slight majority.

Good battle .

Morals are always on unless specified not. Death may be listed as an option for victory, but that doesn't turn them off.

I don't see Cyclops leveling the area at the start. He may inadvertently kill Taskmaster in the process and Cyclops only chooses killing as a last resort so this hinders him. I also don't see him shooting bullets out of the air and arrows may be a stretch, Missiles he has done, but he has never done so with bullets. Even then, he only has a handful of bullet dodging feats none from someone that is pretty adept like TM, I doubt it will be happening. Problem being Cyclops will start out with regular blasts in an attempt to tag him. It's how he enters most fights in the first place and there are a few exceptions I would say otherwise unless he was facing an opponent like the Hulk, Colossus, or the Thing. On that notion, he can tag TM, but with the amount of cover he may have some issues tagging him. Taskmaster on the other hand does not need to actually tag Cyclops considering he has 60 explosive arrows which I kind of find ridiculous. Not trying to insult you Jashro, just saying that is quite a lot and TM is solid with a bow. As I also previously stated, Taskmaster is arrogant. It will hinder him if he ends up trying to play games. Cyclops may have the moral highground, but he is no nonsense on the battlefield.

Yea I think you might be right about that rethinking about it.

Edited OP to be a little bit more fair.
