"Carl throws his Pickaxe like a boomerang. His Super is a crazy cart spin that clobbers anyone around him."
Carl Portrait

Carl is a Super Rare Brawler. He has moderate health and a high damage output. When he attacks, he throws his pickaxe like a boomerang, damaging any enemies that it hits while flying forward or on the way back, like a boomerang. Carl cannot attack again until his pickaxe comes back. His Super allows him to spin and boosts his speed momentarily, dealing damage to anyone he hits. His Gadget, Heat Ejector, makes Carl drop a trail of hot rocks that deal passive damage to enemies that step on them. His first Star Power, Power Throw, allows his pickaxe to move faster, effectively decreasing his "reload" time, and his second Star Power, Protective Pirouette, reduces all damage he takes by 30% while his Super is active.

Attack: Pickaxe

"Carl throws his Pickaxe like a boomerang. After he catches the returning Pickaxe, he can throw it again."
Carl throws a pickaxe that deals damage to enemies and returns to him. The same enemy can be hit twice by the pickaxe: once when it is traveling away from Carl, and again when it is returning back to Carl. The pickaxe can return to Carl through walls, but cannot be thrown through walls. Carl's main attack does not reload like normal Brawlers'. When his pickaxe returns to him, he gets his one and only reload/shot back. However, if Carl's pickaxe hits a wall on its way outwards, it will hit and "bounce" off the wall and will return back to Carl quicker than usual, allowing him to reload faster. In Brawl Ball, Carl can shoot the ball without using up ammo.

Super: Tailspin

"Carl goes into a crazy spin for a few seconds, flailing around and damaging nearby opponents."
Carl spins his pickaxe, dealing damage to any opponents within a short radius every 0.25 seconds. Carl has a drastic 100% movement speed increase while using his Super. This effect lasts for 3 seconds and will stop immediately when he is stunned or knocked back.

Gadget: Heat Ejector

"Carl drops a trail of hot rocks behind his cart! The rocks deal 300 damage per second to enemies who step on them."
When activated, Carl drops a pile of hot rocks behind him every 0.625 seconds for 5 seconds that each last for 3 seconds. His Super does not interrupt the effect. Each pile of hot rocks can do at maximum 1200 damage.

Star Powers

Power Throw

"Carl throws his Pickaxe with 13% more speed, allowing it to travel faster and return faster."
Carl's Star Power allows his pickaxe to move faster by 13%, so he can reload and attack faster.

Protective Pirouette

"During Carl's Super, all damage he receives is reduced by 30%."
Carl's second Star Power reduces the damage taken during his Super by 30%.

Tips

  • When Carl's pickaxe hits an obstacle, it bounces off and returns, letting Carl throw it again faster. You can utilize this mechanic by pushing enemy Brawlers near a wall. Because his pickaxe will return faster after it hits the wall, Carl can do large amounts of damage very quickly. You can also use this to quickly break boxes that are near walls in Showdown. This can be highly effective in Heist, where Carl can utilise walls close to the enemy safe to deal consistent and quick damage.
  • Carl's Super does a lot of damage but at a short-range. Be sure to get close to an enemy Brawler to maximize its damage, but it is advisable to avoid close-ranged Brawlers who deal out high damage very quickly.
  • When using Carl's Super, make sure to pay attention to your health. Carl doesn't have a shield like Darryl or Rosa has, making him more likely to get burst down by enemy Brawlers. However, if you have the Star Power Protective Pirouette, you can survive many more hits before being defeated.
  • Carl cannot use his main attack while using his Super, but he can still use his Super if his pickaxe is still flying.
  • You can use Carl's Super to get possession of the ball more quickly before anyone can get possession of it in Brawl Ball. However, Carl cannot pick up the ball while using his Super.
  • Keep in mind that the pickaxe's returning ability may pose a disadvantage when attacking while traveling inside bushes. This gives the opponents ample time to perform prediction shots.
  • While the pickaxe is traveling through the air, he cannot attack, making him vulnerable.
  • Tailspin makes Carl one of the fastest Brawlers in the game. Use this to escape (especially helpful with the Protective Pirouette Star Power as it lets him survive more shots) or to reach low health enemies.
  • When Carl's pickaxe returns, it can go through walls and obstacles. This can be crucial when your opponent only needs one more hit to be defeated but is hiding behind a wall. You can take advantage of this by throwing your pickaxe, and moving towards the enemy behind the wall before your pickaxe returns, and your pickaxe will hit your opponent before returning to you.
  • Because the pickaxe comes back faster when it hits a wall, if a wall is on the side of the safe in Heist, attack towards the wall while hitting the safe and you can do a lot of damage in seconds.
  • Carl's Super can be interrupted by knockback or stun effects such as Gene's Super and Bibi's Homerun attack. Avoid using your Super offensively against them.
