What an ice place for a fight!

|Based on||Mega Man 6|
Blizzard Man's stage is an secluded harbor in the frozen north surrounded by several caves and lounging Au-Au seals. In the center of this inlet, a half-submerged submarine bobs up and down, making platforming on and around it difficult. The only other convenient way across is on some slippery ice platforms too! To make things worse, unlike most levels, touching the water will result in instant death. In order to avoid confusion, there are several spikes floating in the water that warn the player the water is not safe.
The weaponry here included every ice-based weapon in the game except Ice Wave, almost all of which turn players shades of blue. Expect everyone to be blending in with the snowy terrain! Interestingly, most of the non-blue Weapons are found on the colorful submarine, fitting the camouflage theme.
Blizzard Man's Stage is another stage that is perfectly symmetrical. On each side of the harbor, you'll find Blizzard Attack twice and Ice Slasher. Near the Ice Slasher, you can enter a cave containing a Teleporter corresponding with its twin on the map's other side. A ladder here can also be climbed to grab the Bubble Lead, and pillars on either side of the Ice Slasher climbable via Rush Coil hold the Mirror Buster and Rolling Cutter.
On the eastern edge of the map away from the open sea, two tunnels containing the Freeze Cracker lead to an outlook with Dive Missile and a view of the entire map. An E-Tank is also available on a tall ledge here.
Finally, the submarine itself bears the Fire Storm in its exact center. Bass Buster and Top Spin are toward the aft of the craft while and Eddie Call and Flame Blast are on the fore. The ice drifts in front of the sub also hold Rush Coil and a W-Tank.
Mobility is key on this stage if you don't want to end up trapped on the land against someone's Blizzard Attack or Ice Slasher, which are the best all-around weapons here by far. Learn how to use the ship and ice floes to navigate around the map without hesitation so you'll always be able to escape.
In crowded games, getting the Rolling Cutter is a huge boon for its crowd-controlling abilities. Mirror Buster will also help in getting past anyone on the narrow paths of the stage. Finally, don't bother with the Dive Missile. The map has too much cover and it's very easy to be surprised. Bubble Lead is a much better choice for sniping from the outlook.
