Grom – Epic Brawler

Grom is a security guard in Starr Park who is best friends with his walkie-talkie! His biggest fears are kids and their ability to destroy stuff.

  • Main attack – Bud Go Boom!
    • Grom hurls Bud, his exploding walkie-talkie! The blast moves in the shape of a cross and deals damage to any enemy in its path
  • Super – Grom Bomb
    • Grom launches a massive bomb with Bud’s help. It has the same pattern as his main attack, but it’s longer, knocks back enemies, and destroys walls
  • Gadget – Watchtower
    • Grom ejects a Watchtower from his back that gives all allies sight into bushes over a large area. It loses health over time
  • Star Power – Foot Patrol
    • When Grom’s super is fully charged, he gains 15% movement speed
  • Star Power – X Factor
    • The split from Grom’s main attack deals up to +30% more damage at max distance

Fang – Chromatic Brawler (Available in January)

Fang works at the local cinema in Starr Park but he’s also an aspiring actor himself … usually in low-budget martial art movies.

  • Main attack – Wu-Shoe
    • Fang unleashes a swift kick! If the kick misses the target, his shoe will fly off his foot!
  • Super – Sneak Ahead
    • Fang flies into a nasty kick that upon contact, can chain a further 3 consecutive kicks to nearby enemies
  • Gadget – Corn-Fu
    • Fang surrounds himself with corn kernels that deal 500 damage each
  • Star Power – Fresh Kicks
    • If Fang defeats an enemy with his super, it’s instantly recharged
  • Star Power – Divine Soles
    • Reduce 500 damage from incoming hits once every 3 seconds. Max reduction 90% of the incoming damage

Balance changes


  • Darryl
    • Steel hoops SP is now baseline
    • New steel hoops: Darryl takes 25% less damage for 2 seconds after using his super Felt logical enough to add the damage reduction to his Super so both of his Star Powers could be useful.
  • El primo
    • Increased Super charge from main attack (16 to 12 hits) He has gone from overpicked to underpicked, now his Super charge rate is something in between.
  • Squeak
    • Increased main attack damage (1000 to 1080) His biggest weakness is his attack damage delay. He still has it, because it’s what makes him unique, but now he should cause more damage when hits someone.
  • Carl
    • Increased Super damage (420 to 500) Carl needs some love because their pickrates aren’t great. His super should now be deadlier but still requires the player to know when to use it.
  • Gale
    • Increased Super damage (240 to 420) Gale is really map-dependant and is most useful due to his Gadgets and Super, but still underpicked if compared to all other Brawlers. This isn’t a massive buff but should encourage more players to pick him.


  • Lola
    • Lola’s clone now if used next to herself, will only do 50% of the damage Her super when used on herself was just too easy to do for the benefit it gives. Now to make the most of her super, it requires some skill.
  • Tara
    • Gadget – Support from Beyond – reduced shadow hp to 800 (from 1000) Support from Beyond was being used a lot more than her other Gadget. This shouldn’t make such a difference in most of the interactions but would help Brawlers who struggle to eliminate all of them. Bea will still struggle though (we are sorry for that, Bea).
  • Sandy
    • Reduced Super charge rate (6 to 7 hits) Sandy’s Super is incredibly powerful and quite easy to charge and chain. This should make him less of an obvious pick in maps with lots of walls.
