Shelly is one of the original brawlers in Brawl Stars. She has great range and deals a lot of damage. Her Super ability, Shoot & Scoot, lets her fly across the arena quickly while shooting enemies. Brawl Stars Shelly is perfect for taking out enemies that are far away, and her Super ability makes her a threat even when she’s on the other side of the arena.
Tips and strategies for playing Shelly in matchups against other brawlers:
Hey guys it’s Ash! In this series, I will delve into the mechanics and techniques of most brawler characters in the game and teach you guys how to use Shelly to beat every other brawler.
How to beat every brawler?
We’ll show you this with Shelly in 1v1 situations, and then at the end I’ll show you guys live gameplay of what the best maps and team compositions are for Shelly.
By the end of this guide, I promise you that you will become a Pro Shelly player.
There is so much to cover so we’re breaking this up into several guides to make it super easy for you to digest!
Brawl Stars Shelly versus All Brawlers
In the first part of this guide we are covering El Primo, Brock, Piper, and even Shelly against Shelly!
Shelly vs El Primo
This is one of the easiest matchups for Shelly.
El Primo has about a 3 tiles attack range, so all you have to do is stay away from his range and keep chipping damage on him to charge your Super.
Once you have your Super, you should run towards him and blast your Super on his face. This will allow you to stun him and charge over 75% of your Super and then get it back with 1 more attack, allowing you to use your Super on him again.
One thing you must be careful is that Primo has more speed than Shelly, so try to stay at least 4 tiles away from him when you’re attacking him or he will be able to catch up to you and may kill you.
Shelly vs Brock
Brock is tough matchup for Shelly because of his range.
The best way for you to beat Brock is to use walls to take cover and then get as close as possible to Brock.
A pro tip is to try and get Brock to miss one of his shots so then he only has 2 ammo, and then rush him because he will not be able to kill you when he runs out of ammo.
One helpful thing to note is that you can use Shelly’s Super to cancel out Brock’s Super if you are within his range.
Shelly vs Piper
Similar to how you would beat a Brock, you can employ the same strategy to beat a Piper. However, Piper does most of her damage from far away, while you of course do most of your damage from close up.
So the best way to beat Piper would be to get as close at 3 tiles and then you can quickly kill her with 3 quick shots.
Getting close to her will be the main challenge, and the best way to do that would be to use walls as cover while slowly and safely getting closer to her.
Shelly vs Shelly
When you’re up against another Shelly, the best way to win is to use your full range and manually shoot the enemy Shelly from as far away as possible.
This way, you can slowly deal damage to the enemy Shelly while not take damage.
By weakening the enemy Shelly slowly, you are forcing her to move back so she can regen. This allows you to gain control and pin her down for an easy kill.
People always ask, how old is Shelly?
If you must know, she is 18 but we think it’s much more interesting to know that the Shelly brawlstars character is unlocked at level 6.
Shelly’s super attack
Shelly is in my opinion, one of the strongest solo fighter brawler in this game. Her super acts as an invaluable 4th ammo that can obliterate every target in sight.
Shelly’s spread fire shotgun blasts
Her super attack strengths is her ability to take down even the highest amount of hitpoint brawler in the game. Her spread fire shotgun blasts can kill relatively any foe in this game.
The Shelly’s main attack damage weaknesses is her inability to deal with just about any long ranged brawler. She will need an assist to deal with them because she does not have any chasing ability in this game.
Detect the enemy
Use Shelly’s spread fire shotgun to detect the enemy in bushes, just try to shoot it because it sometimes will save you from a hiding El Primo.
And last, against a long-ranged sniper, you may want to take the advantage of bushes and walls to get near them. Do not be very aggressive in showdown because Shelly is not as tanky as that El Primo or even Bo.
Slow down enemies
Shelly’s super shells slow down enemies, which can give Shelly an advantage in a fight.
Shelly is also able to use her shell shock ability to stun enemies for a few seconds. This can give her time to escape or attack again.
Shell shock slow duration
The Shell shock slow duration means shells slow down enemies. Shelly can use this to keep her opponents in place.
Shelly’s super shells slow duration is 3 seconds and it will also deal damage to the opponent. Her shells will also deal damage to the opponent, but it is not as much as shell shock.
Shelly’s slow duration was increased
This made her an even bigger threat on the battlefield. When Shelly’s slow duration was increased, her matchups became even better.
She is able to control the battlefield more easily and can keep enemies at bay with her long range attacks.
Her main attack range now reaches further, and her Shell Shock can easily take down opponents.
Shelly health and damage statistics
Shelly has a health pool of 1000 and deals 70 damage per hit. Her normal attack shoots off 5 tiles, and her Shell Shock ability increases her range by 2 tiles for 6 seconds.
Shelly’s main attack projectile speed is medium
This makes her a good matchup against most brawlers.
Her Shell Shock ability can knock enemies back, giving Shelly an advantage in battle.
Shelly’s boomstick fires
Buckshot Shelly’s boomstick fires a wide shotgun blast that does tremendous damage at close range. Her main attack shells and range is quite short, so make sure to avoid getting too close to your opponents!
Her Shell Shock ability can stun enemies in a large area, so use it wisely to gain an advantage in battle.
Shelly’s main attack range
Shelly’s main attack range is close, so her matchups against other brawlers are generally close as well. Her shell shock ability can stun opponents for a short duration, which can give her an edge in a fight.
Some of her best matchups are Piper, Brock, and El Primo where shelly’s super shell obliterates both cover close up. Her supercharged shell obliterates both cover and enemy fighters.
