Mortis Strategy 101

By the time you unlock Mortis, you will probably have a good handle on the game, at Mythic tier he’s going to be a brawler that you will be excited to receive! Mortis plays unlike any other brawler in the game, he dashes back and forth as his attack instead of throwing or shooting. Then he can use His super to unleash bats that both deal damage to your opponent and heal yourself at the same time.

Learning to play Mortis is going to be a fun journey, he is easy to pick up, but difficult to master. Once you unlock Mortis you will need to start paying closer attention to your health bar, as this is going to be wildly important in your decisions on which fights to pick and when.

As Mortis dashes in to actually attack anyone, you risk getting bursted down by a lot of brawlers when you do so. So be sure to try to pick off low HP enemies, as you don’t have the damage output to kill almost any full HP brawler. Once you pick a target that has lower HP, you will want to focus on how you attack, your range matters with Mortis.

Every attack spans the same distance, so depending on what brawler you are facing up against you will probably want to be a different distance from them. Don’t dash up into a Shelly or Bull’s face and expect to live, instead dash past them.

You still do damage at any point along the path you dash, so dash past them and leave yourself enough distance that you won’t get one shot by a strong brawler.

Now you can think about combos with your super, if you dash through the enemy team and take some damage along the way, shoot your bats through them to heal you. The bats will heal you for every opponent they hit, so hit as many as possible and watch your HP rocket back to full. Once you can safely dash through brawlers, think about how the Brawlers attack.

Try to attack through a brawler, then back another direction so you are harder to hit. Don’t dash twice past a Brock in a straight line or he will likely catch you. Try to dash through opponents in unusual directions so the opponent has to guess where to focus their next attack.

These dashes obviously can also be used defensively, try to save a dash to get out of trouble, and make sure you have the HP left to move in, attack, and get back out without dying. This is where that brawler focus will come in handy again, if you have a good idea of your current HP, and also your current amount of dashes left, you will be an extremely hard brawler to pick off.

For this reason, Mortis is probably the best gem carrier in the game. Dash up to the gem mine quickly, take the first couple gems, and back off. Then focus on staying alive, picking off easy targets, and keeping the gems safe for your team.

Mortis has a lot of potential to carry games like Gem Grab and Brawl Ball, just think strategically with your team and don’t play too aggressive, you aren’t a DPS, so don’t mistake his sometimes aggressive playstyle for one.
