Use Bull's Super to create a clear path to the safe. Once you are next to the safe, you will be able to deal massive amounts of damage to it. Your health pool is also large, which will give you enough time to chip away at the safe's health.Check out BULL Here
Tips For Playing Heist
Use Throwers & Path Clearers To Reach Safe Fast
Throwers such as Barley & Dynamike and Path Clearers like Colt, Shelly, & Bull are effective Brawlers to use. Throwers can reach the safe with their range while obstacle destroyers use their Supers to clear the path to the safe!
Hide In Grass & Wait For Enemy To Go Down
Sometimes enemy Brawlers will focus on eliminating your team. Hide in the grass, wait for them to pass, then head to their safe to land solid hits. You'll have done enough damage before they notice!
Push When An Enemy Is Eliminated
There's a bit of a respawn cool down when a player is eliminated. You can use these precious few seconds to rush enemy territory and deal damage to their safe!
Heist Event Maps List
Bridge Too Far
Bridge Too Far Features & Tips
This map offers little to no protection when making your way to the safe. Long range Brawlers such as Colt and Piper will thrive in this map since their attacks will be able to hit enemies before they even get close to the safe!
Forks Out Features & Tips
Forks out will force you to snake your way through several unpassable obstacles before getting to the safe. However, Throwers like Barley and Dynamike will be able to circumvent this due to their attacks being able to go over walls.
Kaboom Canyon Features & Tips
Kaboom Canyon has lots of grass in the middle of the map. This is great when you want to get to the other side without being detected. It is recommended to use high burst damage Brawlers or Brawlers with Shotguns!
Pit Stop Features & Tips
A wall of barrels will be standing between you and the safe. Since it takes too much time for you to circumvent this wall to get to the safe, use Thrower Brawlers like Barley and Dynamike to attack over the wall!
Rolling Rumble Features & Tips
This map features a tight central area, which favors close range Brawlers. Use tanky Brawlers to muscle your way to the safe and get a few good hits in on the safe before needing to back away.
Safe Zone Features & Tips
The Safe Zone is littered with bodies of water, grass, and walls. You can be a bit flexible when choosing your strategy here. You can sneak up to the safe by using the grass, or damage the safe from long range!
Side Story Features & Tips
This map will start each team on either corner of the map. Despite having a lot of obstacles scattered around, you can use the jump pads located on either side to quickly get to the other side of the map.
Twist And Shoot
Twist And Shoot Features & Tips
