"Barley attacks by lobbing bottles at enemies, doing splash damage. His Super is a huge barrage of burning bottles!"
Barley Portrait

Barley is a Rare Brawler who attacks by throwing a bottle of harmful liquid that covers a small area on the ground, dealing damage to enemies in that area over time. His Super fires five similar bottles which cover a greater area and persist for a longer time. He has rather low health but has a lot of damage potential. His Gadget, Sticky Syrup Mixer, creates a sticky puddle around himself, slowing enemies down. His first Star Power, Medical Use, heals himself for 400 health when he throws his bottle, but not with his Super. His second Star Power, Extra Noxious, adds 140 damage per second to his main attack. You can unlock Barley and his wizard skin for free by linking your game to your Supercell ID.

Attack: Undiluted

"Barley lobs a bottle, breaking it on the ground. Enemies take damage from the splash, and more damage over time if they stay in the puddle."
Barley throws a bottle of liquid that shatters and deals damage to enemy Brawlers who are standing in the area that the liquid covers. The damage can hit twice if the enemy remains standing on the liquid. After a short time, the liquid disappears.

Super: Last Call

"Barley hurls a flurry of fiery bottles, covering a huge area in flames. This one's on the house!"
Barley throws several bottles of flaming liquid that covers a very large area and deals damage over time. It is mechanically very similar to Barley's main attack; the damage can hit multiple times if the enemy remains standing on the liquid, and after a short time, the liquid disappears.

Gadget: Sticky Syrup Mixer

"Barley drops a sticky concoction that leaves a puddle, slowing down all enemies that makes contact with it."
Barley drops a bottle of liquid at his feet that slows down enemies that walk into it. The puddle lasts for 4 seconds.

Star Powers

Medical Use

"Barley regains 400 health from each attack."
Whenever Barley throws a bottle from his main attack, he regains 400 health. This effect does not apply to his Super.

Extra Noxious

"Adds +140 damage per second to Barley's attack."
Barley's main attack's damage is increased by 15%, for a total of 1092 damage per second. This effect does not apply to his Super.


  • Like Dynamike and Tick, his attacks are thrown, giving him the ability to attack over walls. A good strategy is to attack from behind walls.
  • Barley's attack makes it possible to discourage enemy movement through certain paths. Take advantage of this to keep enemies out of critical areas of the map, such as the mine in Gem Grab.
  • Try to focus on aiming for choke points on the map, or where you think enemies are going to go. Barley is a very solid control Brawler, due to his attack staying on the field.
  • Barley's Super can deal more damage if an enemy Brawler is unable to get out of the liquid quickly. Try to aim the Super to have it land with the enemy Brawler standing in the middle or trapped against a wall.
  • Combining Barley's Super with Spike's can deal huge damage to enemy Brawlers trapped by both. Spike's Super slows the enemy's movement speed, hindering escape, while Barley's does damage.
  • Barley is a menace in Duo Showdown if he is paired with a good tank, such as El Primo, Rosa or Bull. You can follow your partner around and use Barley's attack to damage opponents while the tank finishes them off. The same applies to Power Cubes; if there are multiple boxes near your spawn, you can use your attacks to break them by stacking their damage.
  • Auto-aiming with Barley will often cause you to miss your shot or only get 1 tick of damage. Because Barley's attacks last for two ticks, if you aim the shot in front of an enemy towards where they want to go, you will either hinder their movement or cause them to take two ticks of damage.
  • Barley is a great Siege Brawler mainly because he is a control Brawler, excellent at area denial. He forces the enemy team's Brawlers back with his long-lasting attacks and Super so that his team can get the bolts.
  • Barley can be effective in Heist, if used correctly. You can normally deal damage to opponents, and when you've charged up your Super, crawl to the enemy's safe with the bushes, and target your Super on it. It will deal decent damage to the safe.
  • Extra Noxious allows Barley's attacks to deal more damage. This makes Barley to become a more aggressive brawler and become very strong behind walls. Since this also affects the puddle of poison, Barley's area denial becomes more effective. Remember that you no longer have the quick +1200 health you get from quickly unloading 3 shots with Medical Use.
  • Medical Use is more map-dependent, best used in game modes where controlling the field is more important than getting kills. This includes Gem Grab, Heist, and Siege. Medical Use increases his survivability, allowing you to keep attacking instead of retreating, giving up ground to heal up.
