"Byron deals with potent medicaments, but never call him a snake oil salesman!"
Byron Portrait.png

Byron is a Mythic Brawler who has a moderately high damage output and can provide consistent healing to allies, but has low health and insufficient burst damage. His attack is a long-ranged dart that damages enemies and heals allies over time. His Super lobs a vial that damages/heals all respective targets in its splash radius upon impact. His Gadget, Shot in the Arm, consumes one ammo to heal him over time. His first Star Power, Malaise, momentarily reduces the effectiveness of any healing for enemies hit by his Super. His second Star Power, Injection, periodically makes his attack pierce through targets.

Attack: Careful Dose

"Shoots a long range dart that can hit both opponents and friendlies. Opponents will take damage over time and friendlies will heal over time."

Byron fires a long-ranged dart, dealing three ticks of damage over time to enemies. However, if the dart hits an ally, it instead heals them for the same amount of health as damage to an enemy. The damage/healing effects stack, meaning you can attack/heal the same target multiple times to increase its effect. The damage/healing effects also scale with buffs. Byron’s attack has a slow cooldown of 0.5 seconds, but has a very fast reload speed.

Super: Full Treatment

"Throws a vial that heals friendlies and damages opponents."

Byron lobs a vial over obstacles which instantaneously heals both himself and allies and damages enemies within a 2.67 tile splash radius upon impact.

Gadget: Shot In The Arm

"Byron uses one of his shots to heal himself 800 per second for 3 seconds."

Byron consumes one ammo bar while healing him 800 health per second for 3 seconds, healing a total of 2400 health. This Gadget can be activated when Byron is at full health. There’s a slight delay upon activation, similarly to his attack.

Star Powers

Malaise

"Byron's Super will also cause opponents to receive 75% less healing from any source for the next 9 seconds."

With this Star Power, enemies hit by Byron's Super heal for quarter as much health from any healing source for 9 seconds. This doesn’t affect Max's Sneaky Sneakers Gadget.

Injection

"Every 3.5 seconds the next basic attack will pierce through targets."

With this Star Power, a bar appears over Byron that’s similar to Bibi's Home Run bar. When the bar is charged up (after 3.5 seconds), Byron’s next attack pierces through any target. Like Sprout‘s Overgrowth Star Power, Byron doesn’t require all three ammo for charge the bar.

Tips

  • Since his range is long but his cooldown is slow, sharpshooting skills, such as aiming ahead of the enemy's direction of travel, are needed to utilize Byron well. However, with his fast projectile speed, aiming with Byron is easier than with other long-ranged Brawlers such as Brock or Bea.
  • To take advantage of Byron’s range is to chip away at enemies with his stacking tick damage while also dodging their fire, and once they’re low on health, you can use your Super to finish them off. This strategy will allow Byron to better secure defeats.
  • Byron's long range, high tick damage, and healing abilities truly shine in Team Events because he can consistently heal his teammates and himself with his attack, Super, and Shot In the Arm Gadget alike while they work towards the event objective with the healing giving more ease. Doing so will almost guarantee a positive outcome as the healing decreases enemy damage while assisting allies. In addition, he’s also effective at preventing enemies from healing, making it easier to cripple the enemy team.
  • Byron is outstanding at supporting close-ranged Brawlers like Edgar as Byron's allies can play aggressively, and if applicable, ambush enemies with their Supers or by bush-camping while Byron can consistently and quickly heal them from a safe distance.
  • When your attack is auto-aimed, it prioritizes the closest target to you. When fighting alongside a teammate, manually aim to hit the enemy and keep your distance, and even if you have his Injection Star Power, which allows you to chain attacks to hit both allies and enemies, you should still maintain a safe distance away from teammates that is far enough to damage enemies but close enough to heal allies without the disadvantages of long-range aiming.
  • Byron functions well with 8-BIT as 8-BIT's damage booster boosts Byron's healing abilities and Byron can use this to heal 8-BIT who already has high health. This combination is very effective in Duo Showdown. The combo is also extremely devastating in Siege; if the team dives into the enemy IKE turret's range to attack it, the boosted healing from Byron will momentarily protect 8-BIT while he uses his high damage and his Extra Credits Gadget to take out a major portion, if not all, of the IKE's health. Conversely, these two Brawlers in an enemy team should be monitored closely and be approached with caution.
  • Byron is niche in Super City Rampage as he can heal allies while they aggressively attack the Boss. An excellent team composition in this event is himself with his Injection Star Power, Pam, and one who can stall the Boss such as Edgar/Nita. For Edgar, he should use his Fisticuffs Star Power; for Nita, she should use her Bear With Me Star Power. If Edgar is the stalling Brawler, he should continuously stall the Boss with his high burst damage and the healing provided from his attack, Pam and Byron, and these should make him able to overcome the Boss's damage. For Nita, she should charge up her Super and spawn Bruce near the Boss opposite of Nita, and Nita and Bruce should take turns attacking and healing each other, and with Pam's and Byron's healing, Nita and Bruce can withstand more damage.
