Piper Strategy 101

Piper shoots extremely long-range attacks that increase in damage the farther they travel. Because of this sniper style and low HP, she is a difficult brawler to master, but very potent when used effectively.

Once you learn her bullet speed and can lead opponents properly, she will deal huge damage and make sure no opponent can run away with low hp! You will need to practice leading your enemies, if you shoot directly at them, you are unlikely to hit them as the shots take time to get to their target.

Try shooting about a block ahead of the direction your opponent is running, so by the time the shot gets there, your enemy will connect with it. You will need to rely on your teammates to do base damage, and you can be the one to make sure the enemies don’t escape!

Stay behind cover as much as you can, or bushes if they are available, just poking out for long enough to take your shots before going back to hiding. Because of Piper’s very slow reload speed and low HP, getting caught out of cover will likely mean your death, but that is what her super is for!

Piper’s Super launches her out of trouble, leaving behind bombs that deal damage to her pursuers! This will definitely be a lifesaver when a bull or Primo comes out from the bushes by you. Pop your super and fly away to safety, then take a few shots at the brawler who was chasing you.

By now they are likely pretty damaged from the bombs you left behind. This super can also be used strategically for aggression.

Because you deal so much damage, you are a high priority target for the enemy team, and they will likely take chances to try to kill you. Use this to your advantage when you have your super, push into a choke or objective point and you will probably be jumped on pretty quickly.

Pop your Super again to get away, leaving your enemies in the open with bombs at their feet! If your team doesn’t immediately clean up whoever is left, fire back and take them out yourself!
