"Crow trusts no one and keeps to himself. The most anyone knows about him is that he's often found at the diner, hanging out with Bull and Bibi."
Crow Portrait

Crow is a Legendary Brawler that has low health, and a low damaging attack that poisons enemies to deal extra damage over time. He has great mobility with his Super and his very fast movement speed. He attacks by firing 3 long-ranged daggers that inflict poison on his enemies. Crow's Super makes him jump and land, throwing poisonous daggers around him upon take-off and landing. His first Gadget, Defense Booster, grants him a temporary damage-reducing shield. His second Gadget, Slowing Toxin, slows all poisoned enemies temporarily. His Mythic Gear, Enduring Toxins, increases his poison damage. His first Star Power, Extra Toxic, moderately decreases the damage output of a poisoned enemy. His second Star Power, Carrion Crow, makes enemies with less than half of their maximum health take more damage from Crow's daggers. His Hypercharge, Utility Knives, makes his Super throw and return poisonous daggers around him upon take-off and landing.

Attack: Switchblade

"Crow throws a triple threat of daggers. Enemies hit by the poisoned blades will take damage over time and have all healing effects reduced for the duration."

Crow throws three long-ranged daggers simultaneously with a slight spread. These daggers damage enemies upon contact, while also inflicting poison to enemies over time. Poisoned enemies take 4 ticks of damage equal to 25% of Crow's attack damage every second. Hitting an enemy that is already poisoned will refresh the poison to deal damage 4 more times. Poisoned enemies have all healing sources reduced by 40%, but this doesn't affect Max's Sneaky Sneakers Gadget.

Super: Swoop

"Crow takes to the skies, throwing a ring of poisoned daggers around him both on take-off and landing."

Crow jumps into the air and throws 14 daggers around him that spread out as they travel. He then lands, firing another set of 14 daggers around him upon landing. The daggers from his Super behave identically to daggers from his attack, except that they do not suppress healing. While in the air, Crow is completely immune to all damage besides status effects and damage applied over time.

Gadgets

Defense Booster

"Crow gets a shield for 40% of incoming damage for 3.0 seconds."
GD-Crow1

Crow gains a 3-second shield that reduces all damage he takes by 40%.

Slowing Toxin

"All currently poisoned enemies are slowed for 2 seconds."
GD-Crow2

Crow slows all currently poisoned enemies for 2 seconds, even enemies that are out of Crow's vision. The slow lasts for 2 seconds even if the poison wears off sooner.

Mythic Gear: Enduring Toxins

"Increases Crow's poison damage by 30%."

Crow Gear

With this Gear equipped, if there aren't any outside damage buffs or debuffs, Crow's poison damage from his main attack and Super will be increased by 30%.

Star Powers

Extra Toxic

"Crow's poison saps the strength of enemies, who deal 15% less damage while poisoned."
SP-Crow1

Crow's daggers apply an attack debuff, decreasing the damage output of a poisoned enemy by 15%. This Star Power only affects damage abilities. Affected enemies have an additional visual effect to indicate that this effect is active; there will be blue arrows pointing down on the enemy. The effect is lost when the poison wears off.

Carrion Crow

"Crow deals +256 damage with his attack and Super to targets with 50% or less health."
SP-Crow2

If an enemy has 50% of their maximum health or less, Crow deals 256 extra damage per dagger with his main attack and Super to the enemy and the poison also deals 64 extra damage. In addition, their health bar turns pink instead of the usual red to indicate the Star Power's activation. The effect is lost if the enemy heals back above 50% health.

Hypercharge: Utility Knives

"Crow's knives are piercing and are returning like a boomerang."
Crow-Hypercharge

When activated, daggers from Crow's Super now return to him after reaching their maximum range, and can also pierce through enemies. This effect applies to daggers fired when jumping and landing. However, the daggers can't travel through walls. Crow gains a 24% speed boost, 25% damage boost, as well as a 5% shield boost.

Mutation

This section describes content that has been replaced or removed from the game. This information is kept here for historical purposes.
"Crow's Switchblade now returns to him."
Mutation

Daggers from Crow's attack now return to him after reaching their maximum range, piercing any enemies hit while the daggers are flying forward or traveling back to Crow like the daggers from his Hypercharged Super. In addition, the daggers from his normal Super also pierce, but do not return to him. The daggers can return to Crow through walls but can't be thrown through walls.

Tips

  • Due to Crow's fast reload speed and fast unload speed, he can unload his attack relatively frequently. This allows him to constantly apply poison and regular damage on enemies, preventing them from healing and charging up his Super all the while.
  • His Super is a fitting assassination tool. Once a Brawler is on low health because of the poison, he can jump on them for a quick defeat. Because the daggers fly out around him, you should position yourself to land onto an enemy, which maximizes the Super's potential. Crow's Super also is a viable escape tool. If he is low on health with enemies approaching, you can use his Super to fly away and escape while also damaging the enemies. His Defense Booster Gadget enables better survivability while using his Super, and his Slowing Toxin Gadget also prevents enemies from chasing Crow or retreating from Crow's Super. This works best with close-ranged Brawlers, as they'll be poisoned and can't reach him to attack him due to Crow's relatively long range. Due to this, Crow excels in modes like Takedown, Knockout and Duo Showdown.
  • Crow's poison prevents the poisoned Brawler from self-healing for 4 seconds more than the normal healing time (3 seconds), raising the required time for auto-regeneration to be 7 seconds instead (similar to El Primo's El Fuego Star Power) since the poison enables damage for an extended period. This exponentially hinders an enemy's ability to regroup with allies and/or recover health. The poison also reveals the enemy when they are inside bushes, so it also prevents enemies inflicted with poison from hiding and healing. For this reason, Crow is a great poker that can finish off low-health enemies or continuously prevent isolated Brawler from healing and force them to retreat.
  • To use Crow is to take advantage of his range by poking at the enemy. Attack from a distance and back off to chip away at an enemy's health and charge his Super. While poking, use Crow's fast movement speed to dodge enemy fire. Although poking deals moderate damage each time, especially because other Brawlers are more effective in long-ranged combat than Crow, poking will slowly defeat the enemy and hinder any healing.
  • Crow's Super can be useful for Brawl Ball. When Crow has the ball and his Super, he can self-pass by kicking the ball in front of him, and then use his Super to jump past other Brawlers and retrieve the ball, and then attempt to score.
  • Crow's Extra Toxic Star Power reduces damage dealt by poisoned enemies. This also works on IKE turrets, Boss Fight Robots, and Big Game Bosses, making them overall less effective in the long run, and increasing his team's survivability.
  • Crow's Carrion Crow Star Power allows Crow to pick off low-health enemies with ease. Allow your allies to bring an enemy to half health, then poke them down until they're defeated, and the damage boost should allow this to be done quicker than usual.
  • Whenever playing him on Showdown with the Angry Robo Modifier, it's not recommended to play solo as Crow can't deal high damage to the Boss by himself; playing Duo Showdown with a high-damaging teammate is much more ideal.
  • An advanced aiming tactic is to hit 2 daggers at medium range from an enemy by aiming slightly to the edges. This gets easier the closer an enemy is to him. However, at a certain point, it's simply better to quickfire so all 3 daggers hit a target.
  • Crow is niche in offense-oriented modes such as Showdown, and his effectiveness in these modes is amplified with his Star Powers. Since surviving while defeating the enemies is the top priority in these modes, Extra Toxic reducing an enemy's damage is a viable tactic. Since Extra Toxic's effect is percentage-based, it also scales with a target's damage, making him better against heavyweights or enemies with a high amount of Power Cubes. Meanwhile, Carrion Crow can be very strong in 1v1 interactions. Early into the game where Power Cubes aren't abundant, Carrion Crow can provide crucial damage required to eliminate an enemy early. The Star Power of choice ultimately depends on play style: Extra Toxic is better for a sustained, controlled game of Showdown while Carrion Crow is better for an aggressive play style that capitalizes on early eliminations.
  • Crow's Defense Booster Gadget should be activated after using Crow's Super to get more value and to be able to play aggressively. His Slowing Toxin Gadget, however, should be activated right before using Crow's Super to block mobility to escape from Crow's Super.
  • Keep in mind how many daggers and/or poison damage Crow requires for his Super. Knowing this can help you decide when to jump to eliminate an enemy and whether you should continue pursuing them as your target.
  • Crow is highly vulnerable to assassins with high-mobility, such as Mortis and Edgar, at close range without his Super or help from allies. In these scenarios, it's best to group with them. Attack them at a range, and when they get close, quickly group with a teammate with high damage at close range, such as Shelly and Bull, who could potentially protect him and potentially defeat the enemy.
  • A good strategy in Showdown is to play as a third-party (waiting for a fight to end, defeating the winner, and stealing all of the Power Cubes). You can ramp up Cubes quickly with this strategy. As Crow, you should keep enemies who are on low health after a fight poisoned continuously until they are defeated, since Crow is incapable of dealing high damage immediately.
  • Before using his Slowing Toxin gadget in 3v3s, make sure that more than 1 target is currently poisoned. For the best use, poison all the three enemies and then use the gadget to slow all the enemies to make way for teamwipes.
  • An effective strategy is to pair with a Brawler like Colette, Surge, or Piper (at a range) who can bring an enemy down to low health very quickly, and then use his poison and Super to eliminate them without risk of getting defeated. This works very well in modes like Duo Showdown.
