@flashrules: he was really slow and his plasma beam was blocked by normal stones that Arthur threw at him. In fact, the stones blocked the beam causing it to blow up in Black Manta's face taking him out of the fight for good.
The suit only gives him a ranged attack but doesn't offer any buffs to his speed or strength. And the ranged attack is extremely telegraphed.
Bucky wins this fight.
Black Manta has a lot of destructive capability and I don't know if bullets can hurt him in his armor.
It was tanking hits from Arthur which should put it above bullet level in durability. Plus it wouldn't make much sense for a race of bullet-resistant beings to build armor that is weaker than their own skin. Especially when we know their metals are stronger than anything humans use.
To say he can be put down by bullets would be ignoring a lot of the context given to us by the movie, in my opinion.
