"8-Bit lumbers along like an arcade cabinet on legs. He shoots Blaster Beams and his Super boosts friendlies' damage!"
8-BIT Portrait

8-BIT is a Common Brawler who is unlocked as a Trophy Road reward upon reaching 6000 Trophies. He has both high health and damage output, but suffers from a significantly slower movement speed compared to other Brawlers. He wields a laser gun that he uses to fire beams at enemies. His Super creates a damage booster, granting him and his allies to gain a 30% damage boost in its radius. His first Star Power, Boosted Booster, increases his damage booster range by 50%. His second Star Power, Extra Life, allows him to instantly respawn at the same place he died once per match. His Gadget Cheat Cartridge allows him to instantly teleport to his damage booster, destroying it in the process.

Attack: Blaster Beams

"Shoots a burst of Blaster Beams that damage any opponent they hit. The beams have medium range and a slight spread."
8-BIT shoots a long-ranged burst of six light beams with a small spread that deals little damage each. If all beams connect, he can deal quite a bit of burst damage.

Super: Damage Booster

"Deploys a turret that increases the damage output of all friendly Brawlers in its area of effect."
8-BIT throws a turret that increases the damage output of himself and allies around the radius by 30%. This will also increase the healing power of certain brawlers like Poco but does not affect turrets or pets like Nita's bear and Jessie's turret. It also does not affect the Siege bot or IKE turret in Siege and enemy brawlers. His turret doesn't stack with other 8-BITs'.

Gadget: Cheat Cartridge

"8-Bit instantly teleports to his Damage Booster, which is then destroyed."
8-BIT will instantly teleport over to his booster, which is then destroyed. He has to be within 12 tiles of his booster to be able to use this Gadget. This Gadget has 3 charges per match.

Star Powers

Boosted Booster

"Increases the Damage Booster's radius by 50%."
This increases the overall range of the Damage Booster by 50%, allowing it to cover more ground and affect more allies.

Extra Life

"When 8-Bit is defeated for the first time in a match, he instantly resurrects."
Whenever 8-BIT is first defeated during a match, he instantly respawns with 1 ammo (without an immunity shield). In game modes such as Gem Grab, Siege and Showdown, when 8-BIT is defeated he will drop all Gems, Bolts or Power Cubes that he was carrying before respawning again from this Star Power. This Star Power does not activate if he is the Big Brawler in Big Game.

Tips

  • As the slowest brawler in the game, 8-BIT is very vulnerable to the fast-moving speed brawlers, such as Crow or Leon. At the start of Showdown matches, focus first in killing these brawlers at a distance before they get closer and get the chance to deal a lot more damage.
  • Although he has slow movement, he has one of the longest ranges in the game (just behind Brock, Piper and Bea) and the same as Leon's. Take advantage of this to out-range most of the brawlers in the game.
  • If an enemy is chasing 8-BIT, try to deal as much damage to the enemy to force him to retreat, as you most likely will not be able to outrun him. In some situations, 8-BIT can use his gadget to teleport away from danger.
  • If you are low in health and someone is chasing you, you can place your booster down to tank some shots so you can escape more easily. Keep in mind, this will not work against Penny because it will just multiply her damage output.
  • When surprising someone, 8-BIT can throw his Damage Booster towards them before rushing in. Not only will this allow him to attack the enemy with increased damage, but the opponent's shots could be blocked by the booster.
  • Due to 8-BIT's slow movement speed, dodging bullets from Sharpshooters like Colt or Rico or Throwers like Barley or Tick will be difficult. So dealing damage behind cover from afar is recommended as the enemies will not be able to hit you as easily.
  • Extra Life can yield great results in Siege. 8-BIT can run into the IKE's range, then use the immediate respawn alongside his booster to deal lots of damage to the turret.
  • Both of his Star Powers are best used in different situations:
    • Boosted Booster is best used in 3v3 Events such as Gem Grab, Bounty, Heist, Brawl Ball and Siege due to the extended range of his Damage Booster, allowing more allies to be in range of his booster to deal more damage.
    • Extra Life is best used in Showdown as it is a much bigger advantage to have a second chance since Brawlers cannot respawn.
  • 8-BIT's Cheat Cartridge Gadget can be used to rush an enemy, by throwing his booster over the wall towards the enemy before teleporting. He normally cannot rush an enemy effectively due to his slow movement speed.
  • 8-BIT's Gadget can also be used to evade from dangerous situations.
