Gene Brawl Stars — Strategies, Tips & Tactics

gene-brawl-stars

Gene uses his magic lamp to shoot a splitting projectile. His super is a magical hand that grabs and pulls enemies close!

Barley is your friendly bartender robot! His main attack lobs bottles that explode and deal damage around the impact area. Along with his ultimate that has a much larger impact area, use barley to zone your opponent into the areas you want them!

Gene’s Abilities

Attack: Smoke Blast

Gene shoots a solid ball of magical smoke from his lamp. If the ball doesn’t hit a target, it splits up and spreads the damage in a cone.

Super: Magic Hand

Gene launches a magical hand from his lamp. If the hand hits an enemy, they get pulled back to Gene’s location!

Gene’s Strength’s

  • Very long reach with the cone shape burst at the end of the bullet range (makes him an excellent sniper)
  • Good support in the team with a super heal overtime for everyone close to him when you activate his star power
  • Super can stun a brawler when it hits



Gene’s Weaknesses

  • Not a very strong close-ranged dueler
  • Super can work against you when you make poor decisions, such as pulling Jessie or Penny turrets.



Tips & Tactics

  • Avoid pulling close range duelers like Bull or Shelly to you.
  • Gene’s Super can cancel the Supers of other Brawlers like Frank’s or Brock’s.
  • Gene can be played as a poker, or suppressor. His shots can provide cover fire and keep the enemy team from healing or pushing.
  • You can extend how far your Super pulls someone by walking backwards as soon as you launch your Super. It is also extended if Gene uses a Launch Pad while firing his Super.

Gene’s Skins

Gene's Changelog History
  • 02.15.19 — Gene was added to the game.
  • 02.27.19 — Gene’s Super was changed to no longer deal damage, travel through walls (breaking walls when pulling back a target), and charge 30% faster. The Super projectile size was also increased to 200 (from 150). Also, Gene’s Star Power healing effect is no longer shown to enemies and was increased to 200 health per second (from 100 per second). Finally, Gene was given voice-over lines.
  • 03.01.19 — Gene’s Super was changed so that it can grab pets and turrets like Nita’s bear or Pam’s Healing Station.
  • 04.15.19 — fixed a bug that allowed Gene to pull the Robot boss so that it got stuck in Boss Fight. Fixed a bug that caused Gene’s pull to stick enemies inside walls when pulling close to an indestructible wall. Fixed a bug that didn’t allow Gene to pull enemies with his Magic Hand while being poisoned by a lvl 10 Crow. When a pulled enemy dies during the pull the hand no longer destroys the environment. When Gene is pulling a target with his Magic Hand the target cannot be pulled by another Gene. Quickfire now takes into account the added range from the projectile splitting.
