SUPER BOUNCY Ricochet’s bullets, from attack and Super alike, get supercharged by their first bounce and deal +80 damage.
When Rico falls below 40% health, he runs 34% faster.
Rico blasts waves of bouncy bullets in all directions.
Primary Attack: Bouncy Bullets
Ricochet’s bullets bounce off walls, gaining range. They can hit enemies behind cover.
Rico’s main attack is a burst of five bullets with a low spread that can bounce off of walls. This is really useful in situations when an enemy is around a corner because Rico will be able to hit them while they cannot easily retaliate. With each bounce, the bullets gain 1.67 tiles of additional range.
Super Ability: Trick Shot
Ricochet fires a long burst of bullets that pierce through enemies and bounce off walls, gaining range.
When his Super is used it fires a larger, longer-range burst of bouncing bullets which can keep traveling after hitting an enemy and can bounce off walls. This is very useful in situations when the enemies are all grouped together, allowing you to hit multiple targets
Strengths and Weakness
|Very long attack range.||Low HP|
|His bullets off walls, giving extra shots on the targets.||Susceptible to melee or short range Brawlers|
|Great in open space maps that have lots of brushes.||Pretty hard to use for avg players.|
|Great in Bounty.||Always need to be played hide and seek.|
|Couple well with any tank|
Best Game Modes for Barley
- Gem Grab
Not Good Vs
Colt is almost the same as Ricochet, but his bullets don’t bounce.
Try to get into a situation where he has to walk through your bullets to get to you, but other than that, you just have to have a better aim. However, if you can get behind a tank, you can easily take him out.
Same as Colt, but easier to avoid his rockets. Brock also has an extremely low recharge rate, so it is very easy to shoot him more than he can shoot you.
Once Brock wastes his rockets, you can get closer (still risky) to have a higher chance of bullets hitting him.
You can tank two direct hits from Brock, but most Brocks are incapable of doing so.
The main problem against Jessie is her bullet’s ability to bounce off of brawlers and hit you even when you are behind cover.
Make sure to always be vigilant and never forget her bullets don’t disappear after hitting someone.
The turret is extremely easy to deal with because you outrange it and you can take it out with 2 orange ammo bars (10 hits in total).
Jessie is also a lower health brawler and now she only deals 140? I think damage after her nerf.
Easy to deal with because you outrange her.
The bear can be annoying, but it moves slow and is an easy target to pick off. However, if you stay far enough away, she can’t hit you and thus, she can’t charge her super
Dynamike is fairly easy to counter as long as you can avoid his bombs. However, you will have to go into the open to attack him because he can throw over walls and you can’t.
AVOID HIS SPECIAL AT ALL COSTS!!!
One hit from his mega bomb will send you to the “New Life In … Seconds” screen.
Other than that his low health and his inability to chase you make him easy to kill and escape from.
If he is too far away to land hits, you will easily be able to kill him.
However, his Super can land him right next to you and take out almost half of your health.
Best to let someone else tank his hits while you shoot safely from afar.
NEVER GET IN CLOSE.
A tankier Shelly with higher damage and shorter range. Very easy to defeat if you (surprise, surprise) don’t get in close.
Like El Primo, his special could land him right next to you so always look out for that.
Time to play the aim game! Basically whoever lands more shots will win.
Don’t try to trap him in a tight corridor because his bullets bounce too (duh) Probably best to let your Shelly take him out.
See Dynamike. (Sorry I’m getting lazy lol)
Barley has a poison instead of immediate damage so try not to get caught. Barley’s special is hard to deal with as well because of your low health.
Try to avoid him.
Very easy to defeat.
You outrange him so you can pick him off.
Try to deal with Poco before others because of his heal ability.
Mortis can charge right up to you and take you out very easily. However, try to attack him so that when he charges to hit you, he’s actually charging straight into a mouthful of bullets!
If you can, hide in the grass and pray he didn’t see you.
Bo’s range is as long if not longer than yours so try to avoid him.
Always stay a safe distance away to avoid his bombs too.
Typically a Bo will beat you because he doesn’t have to be as accurate with his arrows because they explode.
You outrange his attack, but not the spikes that shoot out from it. Try to shoot from behind cover, but avoid direct confrontation and watch out for his special which does travel over walls.
Never attack without a tank to shield you!
His poison arrows outrange you and can melt you very fast (again, you have extremely low health. SUPERCELL PLEASE BUFF HIS HEALTH)
His special is similar to El Primo’s in range, but Crow is unlikely to attack you from right in front of your face because his arrows don’t do a lot of immediate damage.
If you are low on health, he might use his special to finish you off.
Ricochet has amazing potential to be a great brawler but lacks health to get there. Instead, he falls in the shadow of Colt. However, you can take out many brawlers with experience.
Just remember to:
- Never get in close, it’s basically a death wish.
- Hide behind walls/tanks so they absorb the damage instead of you.
In the right hands, Ricochet can be the best brawler in the game.
Thank you so much for reading, it means a lot to me that you all enjoy it (and it also helps me justify spending 2+ hours of my life on this article)
