Strategy For Playing Showdown
Use Different Tactics For Each Brawler
It's best to know what each Brawler can do & the types of attacks they have. For example, long-range Brawler can counter short range rivals by kiting them and chipping them off before they get close. Close range Brawler can hide in bushes to launch a surprise burst of attack.Check Out All Brawler List Here!
Destroy Boxes To Get Power-Ups Before Brawling
Before attempting to attack another Brawler, make sure that you're buffed up from the power-ups you can get by destroying boxes. These can be found around the map & increase your HP & attack damage. Having around 3 power ups early on will boost your survival in late battle!
Use Bushes To Ambush Enemies Or Heal
The many bushes found in the Showdown maps will help you last longer in the match. Use them to hide and ambush enemy Brawlers or lose them to quickly heal & fight another day.
Ambush Other Brawlers After A Fight
When you notice a Brawl happening near you, lay in wait and ambush the Brawler that comes out victorious. They'll have lower HP and you can easily take them down and grab their power ups.
Tips When Playing in Duos
Always Cover Your Teammate
Playing solo can easily get both of you killed. Work together by providing cover for each other, especially if one is being pursued by an enemy. Always be alert on what's happening to your team!
Stay Alive to Revive Teammate
If either you or your teammate dies, defeated member can respawn as long as the other is still alive. Prioritize this and stay out of fights until you or your teammate are back in the battlefield.
Prioritize Defeating Remaining Enemy Team Members
Don't give other teams the chance to revive their teammates. After you've dealt with one of the enemy pairs, make sure to pursue and defeat the remaining member before the other one respawns!
