Darryl Strategy 101
Darryl is a shotgun style brawler similar to Bull. High damage output in close range, but his damage quickly dissipates as his enemies get farther from him. Boasting a fairly high HP, use Darryl to get into the fray and keep the damage high on your enemies.
You will likely need to rely on a ranged teammate to finish off opponents as you will only get one or two shots off on him before the enemy gets away. For this same reason, try to pick fights with enemies that you can kill with a shot of two.
Let your higher DPS sniper style teammates dictate your targets for you. Wait in the bushes or behind cover until a Brock or Bo lands a few shots on an enemy, then jump out and focus down the brawler. Darryl will require you to think more about your fights than a Bull or an El Primo.
Darryl is great for strategically killing off target brawlers, but don’t make the mistake of playing him like a Bull and just charge into every fight you can get close to. Because of this face that you need to be picking off enemies, not just tanking damage in a central location, you will need to rely on Darryl’s Super ability a lot to get you into the fight with the brawler you want to finish off.
Lucky, Darryl’ Super recharges by itself, no need to deal damage to charge up this Super, it will auto-fill quickly enough.
Darryl’s Super turns him into a rolling barrel, charging through enemies and bouncing off walls. Use this ability to surprise enemies and pick off key opponents. Because he bounces off walls, using this ability to hit opponents multiple times in a hallway will start a fight off heavily in your favor.
Again, planning with Darryl is very important, plan an attack by aiming yourself off a wall, bouncing into a fight from an unusual direction is sure to surprise enemies and catch them unready for a fight.
Being an effective Darryl brawler is going to take some time as his skill ceiling is high. Plan your attacks, use your team to start fights, and pick off key opponents, these are your keys to being an effective Darryl.
