Poco’s Strength’s

  • Poco excels in Bounty and Smash & Grab due to his range poke and heal.
  • He has strong map control due to his good range.
  • Poco can kite Brawlers like Bull and El Primo relatively well as long he is out of their range.

Poco’s Weaknesses

  • Poco doesn’t do well in terms of burst damage, so he doesn’t do well in 1v1 battles. Showdown is a tough map for him.
  • Poco can’t break walls.
  • Poco can’t deal enough damage to fend off El Primo or Bull should they close the gap with their respective supers.

Tips & Tactics

  • Poco should always stay with his teammates so he can heal with his super should the need arises.
  • In maps like Smash & Grab, you will always want to be in the center to poke any enemy that wants to grab crystals. The goal is to poke and gain map control.
  • Always be moving around to make yourself unpredictable.



Poco Strategy 101

Poco is one of the few healing characters in the game, making him a very welcome addition to any team. Poco’s main attack is a very large wave of sound that damages anybody it hits. This means you should be trying to aim for multiple enemies whenever you can.

Unless you are in danger or in uncomfortably close range with your opponent, try to manually aim all of your shots. You won’t need to rely on leading your shots to hit most foes because of the large fan area that your sound wave hits, but you will likely be able to hit multiple enemies if you manually aim instead of tapping your attack button.

Poco is very strong in the first team fight, especially on game types like gem grab. Be very aggressive in the first team fight, as most teams stick together for this fight, you are likely to be able to hit all 3 enemies with all three of your first shots.

This will often wipe whole teams or at least leave them running away for cover. Even if you die in this fight, you should have your ultimate ready for the next fight and your team should have cleaned up and been able to claim the objective area.

Poco will take some time getting used to if you have been playing with other brawlers, to be effective with Poco you need to get used to doing poke damage and not dying.

Because Poco has a decent range and large spread, poke your head into a fight, burst your damage and run back away behind your team. You will also need to kite brawlers to win fights. Pick fights with brawlers you know you can outrange, letting them try to chase you while you run away and attack behind you to deal damage to them.

The next large thought change you will need to make to play Poco effectively is his Super, which you will definitely waste a lot before becoming an effective Poco player, but don’t let that dissuade you from learning this very fun and helpful brawler!

Poco’s Super is a very long and wide area of effect healing blast. Passing through walls and obstacles, Poco heals himself and his team for a lot of HP. Poco always heals himself so don’t worry about trying to aim in a way that also heals you, just try to at least heal one teammate if not both whenever you use your super.

Unfortunately, if you have been playing other brawlers, getting used to his ultimate will likely mean you waste it a lot before you start using it effectively.

Accidentally casting Pocos ultimate at the enemy team out of habit will definitely happen to you often, but don’t worry, after a few games, you will get used to healing and not dealing damage! Once you are using Poco’s super properly, you will find yourself going many games in a row without even dying once.

Poco is very hard to kill, and very annoying for your opponents when you lead them into a situation that you turn into your favor quickly. Turning a bad team fight into a great one is Poco’s specialty.

Once your tank or DPS pick a fight, wait until your team and the opponents are about halfway dead, then pop your super! Your team is now back to full health, and your enemies are almost dead! This sudden even fight turning heavily in your team’s favor is the most effective way to use Poco.

The next best way is to purposely let an enemy chase you, thinking they are about to kill you, pop your ultimate and turn the tables and chase them back! Suddenly you turn from the prey to the predator as you again turn the tables on your enemy for an easy kill. P

oco has one of the higher learning curves, but once you learn to use him properly, he is extremely fun and an effective support for your team. The first time you trick a team into chasing you, then turn around and kill them will be so satisfying you will be a Poco main from then on!
