Frank’s Strength’s

  • Great health and can poke from mid-range
  • Good for breaking walls and protecting allies
  • Gets very strong as the game progresses with skull power, can 1 shot some brawlers



Frank’s Weaknesses

  • Weak against very long-range characters like Rico
  • Easily kited in open space and also an easy target to hit
  • Super can be canceled by knockbacks such as Shelly’s or El Primo’s super



Tips & Tactics

  • Frank’s mid-range means he will not do well against long-range attackers. You will want to work with your teammates and protect them from the front line.
  • He does well in Smash and Grabs as the gem carrier with tanky stats and the ability to attack behind walls



Frank Strategy 101

Frank is another really interesting tank, unlike Bull or El Primo you have to play him in a specific way to make him effective. Going all out aggression with Frank like you would with El Primo will usually just get you killed. You’re going to have to be a bit more sneaky with this big guy to take full advantage of his abilities.

Because he loses to the shotgun characters like Shelly and Bull and doesn’t fare well against the long-range brawlers that can hit a large target from afar, you’re going to have to think about your movement a lot while playing Frank.

Stay in bushes, move around the edges of the map, and try to surprise your enemies, that’s going to get you the best results.

Franks smash does a lot of damage, in a wide area, so finding a grouped-up team and unloading on them is going to do a ton of damage, but also get you your super quickly. Frank’s super is also what’s going to sway games in your favor when you use it properly.



Frank’s Super is very similar to his smash, only with a larger distance, and a stunning feature. This means, however, that catching a whole team in his super, then unloading his smashes will likely leave none standing.

This overwhelming power is great for teams but also great to pick off that really annoying DPS that will get away if he isn’t killed instantly. However, because this smash and stun combo will kill almost any brawler, it takes Frank a second to charge it up.

This is going to be his weakness for you to watch out for, and if you are playing against a Frank, for you to take advantage of. Every knockback or stun will cancel Frank’s super, so Shelly’s super, or El Primo’s elbow or Dynamike’s bomb will all cancel Frank’s super, leaving him vulnerable to attack.

Keep this in mind while you play Frank, and try to surprise your opponents so they don’t have the chance to cancel your super!
