10 BEST TIPS TO USE LEON
- Use your super for running away from enemies especially if you have gems on your head or if you’re very low on HP.
- Use invisiheal in showdown most of the times, as it can get insane utility when a lot of brawlers surround and chip you down slowly
- Kite tanky brawlers towards you making them deal way more less damage than what you deal hence killing them before they destroy you
- Dodge and run away from high DPS brawlers like Rico and Colt, you get them face to face if you dodge a lot of shots.
- Aim your shots as auto-aiming will hit where the brawlers were and not would be.
- His super can be ineffective if the opponents know the path where you come from, so don’t use your super in the open.
- The blades can either be spread or concentrated on a single target like Bo, hence switching between solo or area control
- Try to kill only one enemy at a time, doing the opposite can definitely get you in a bad spot.
- He can exceptionally good in lone star with his invisiheal as it could help you from getting killed by all the 9 brawlers.
- Chip down enemies slowly and charge your super and then finish them at close range.
Instant Guide to Using Leon
Shared by Andrew Schmitz
Attack: Spinner Blades
Leon shoots 4 spinner blades in a row, from left to right. The attack does 700 damage at max level, and 500 at level 1. This gives him the ability to do 2000-2800 damage at close range.
The damage starts falling off at about 3 tiles. He has a 2.3 second reload time, which is a little above average. It is important to reload before engaging.
Super: Smoke bomb
Leon goes invisible for 6 seconds.
Enemies can only see Leon if he attacks, touches a gem or power cube, and touches the Brawl Ball.
Leon will also be revealed if he goes within 4 tiles of an enemy. You can use this super to get around the enemy for a surprise attack, escaping spawnables or going behind enemy lines to finish off their safe.
Star Power: Smoke Trail
Leon can go much faster when he has his star power, enabling him to approach enemies faster.
All thrower brawlers are very squishy, hence all of them can be two shotted or can also be one-shotted if they are weak. But do not run away in a straight if they are attacking, try to dodge their attacks as they usually very high area damage especially Dynamike and spike.
Try to super in the bush and surprise the brawlers, but it can hard against a spike where he can deal tons of damage very close which can kill you, hence be very sneaky.
While dodging run around random places so that the throwers can never predict
The key to killing tanks is to stay just out of their reach as you kite them away.
Primo and Bull are very ineffective since their movement speed is less than yours. While their attacks do none or barely any damage, you can safe damage them from afar.
But after the recent nerfs, he can’t even three-shot these brawlers making him die very easily if caught off guard. But trying to lure the tanks towards you and making them run with you can give an advantage of damage. Don’t try to solo these brawlers up close as they can easily two or three-shot you quickly.
Regular Ranged Damage
These matchups are all dependent on distance.
At close ranges, you have the upper hand. However, these damage characters can win if they pick you apart form far away for they get a good super off.
Try to dodge as many shots as possible and build up your super and then get invisible and finish hem.
Snipers are easy pickings when you can surprise them and are great targets when you have your super.
Try to finish off Piper before she can super away.
Watch out for the incredible burst damage from Brock’s barrage.
Do not engage snipers if you are far away, unless there is cover. Snipers also have slow reloads, so if you see them blow their shots on a box, engage them immediately.
Jesse and Penny have weak attacks in 1v1 situations.
Try to isolate them and take them out form behind, as their attacks will not splash onto the rest of your teammates.
Also, focus on taking out Penny before her mortar as the mortar shots are relatively easy to dodge with your high movement speed.
Basic Strategy For Leon
Leon has a unique style of gameplay reliant on stealth.
You can win most battles if you’re able to get the jump on your opponent. Therefore, your whole gameplan needs to be designed around using stealth to ambush your opponent. But this is applicable only with non-tanky brawlers, after his recent nerfs he cant three-shot any tanks in the game.
Because of this, every game, in each game mode should have one plan:
Don’t try to auto-aim with Leon, it can go very wrong if you are not close enough. Especially if your soloing another Leon, whoever gets their first two shots wins, and if the enemy Leon is moving away from you, auto-aiming is gonna do very less damage as they don’t hit the other Leon.
Built up charge on your super
This should be done carefully, as Leon is fragile. Use bushes to your advantage. You need to get your super ASAP.
He could have high DPS up close but medium health, so try to dodge shots when dealing with high DPS brawlers.
Now, you can really start to unleash havoc on your opponents.
Sue your super to go behind the enemy and take out their support, sniper, or thrower. Then, dash away before the rest of their team can gang up on you.
When engaging enemies, there are three things you need to remember: going within 4 tiles reveals you, you gain health while invisible, and make sure you have ammo.
Most of the time, three auto aims from point-blank will take your target out and almost charge your super back up.
