    Armor has been on the rise as a staple special for teams to use what are some counters you have seen used to play against it

    I’ve seen many things including CDS, Bamboo, other Rain users with Object Shredder, and I could even see stingray used to counter armor.

    Using ray to counter seems weird since you are essentially using a special that can help with objectives in TC and RM to counter a special people can get 8+ times a gameimo

    I'd say OS zap and burst bombs are both really solid for stripping armor. Also mpu cds (ofc) since it's good at everything and can back up while stripping armor.

    Rain is really effective at breaking armors and it gets rain pretty fast.
    Then fizzy is also super strong at breaking armors cause all it takes is one of the 3 pops from fizzy to break armor. This is even stronger when you run double fizzy builds.
    Finally, you can combo double fizzy + rain + double fizzy for maximum pressure and armor breaks.

    Also, changing your playstyle while the enemy has armor is also a strong idea. Don't go in when they have armor and just throw bombs to break their armor. When they're armor is broken/ gone, then you can push back in and play normally.
    It's all about respecting the armor
