"Darryl put on the pirate captain's hat in a bid to avoid work, but now he's forced to defend his ship! Who knew being in charge took actual effort?"
Darryl Portrait

Darryl is a Super Rare Brawler who has high health and a high but inconsistent damage output. His Trait allows his Super to charge automatically over time. He attacks by shooting shotgun shells that deal very high damage at close-range. His Super allows him to roll a short distance, damaging enemies, bouncing off of walls, and gaining a significant damage-reduction shield while rolling. His first Gadget, Recoiling Rotator, allows Darryl to spin around and shoot a barrage of pellets around him that slightly charge his Super. His second Gadget, Tar Barrel, emits tar around him that slows enemies. His first Star Power, Steel Hoops, grants him a small shield for a couple of seconds after his Super finishes rolling. His second Star Power, Rolling Reload, momentarily doubles his reload speed after using his Super.

Trait

"This Brawler charges Super over time."

Darryl's Super will charge itself over time. It takes 30 seconds to fully charge his Super without other Super-charging abilities.

Attack: Double Deuce

"Darryl's double barrel shotguns fire two staggered blasts of heavy close-range damage."

Darryl fires 10 shells in 2 waves from his shotguns that deal medium-high damage. This attack deals more damage at close range because more shells can hit the enemy, dealing heavy damage at point-blank range. This attack takes 0.608 seconds to complete.

Super: Barrel Roll

"Darryl rolls forward inside his barrel, knocking back enemies, reducing incoming damage and bouncing off walls. His Super recharges over time!"

Darryl rapidly rolls a distance of 7 tiles, bouncing off walls and gaining a 50% damage reduction shield. He can roll over water, but not through rope fences or other obstacles. Enemies hit by a rolling Darryl get knocked back and take minor damage. Darryl can pierce through multiple enemies in one roll and can damage the same enemy multiple times by bouncing off walls.

Gadgets

Recoiling Rotator

"Darryl spins around and sprays a barrage of shots in all directions. Each shot deals 600 damage and recharges his Super by 25% if it hits enemies!"
GD-Darryl1

Darryl spins in a circle, quickly unloading 15 single shells around himself. Each shell deals 600 damage, has a range of 9 tiles, and charges 25% of his Super if it hits an enemy.

Tar Barrel

"Darryl creates a slowing area around himself for 5.0 seconds."
GD-Darryl2

Darryl emits a 2.33-tile radius of slowing tar all around him for 5 seconds that moves with him. Tar Barrel cannot be used while Darryl is rolling, but his Super does not cancel Tar Barrel.

Star Powers

Steel Hoops

"After Barrel Roll all damage Darryl takes is reduced by 25% for 2 seconds."
SP-Darryl1

After Darryl uses his Super, he gains a 25% damage reduction shield for 2 seconds.

Rolling Reload

"When Darryl uses his Super, he doubles his reload speed for 5.0 seconds."
SP-Darryl2

After Darryl uses his Super, he doubles his reload speed for 5 seconds, along with a slightly larger and reddened appearance.

Tips

Game Modes and Maps

  • Using his Super, Darryl can deal significant damage to the IKE turret in Siege by rolling in and shooting at it, taking minimal damage because of the shield he gets from rolling. However, he shouldn't do this in situations where his teammates don't have sufficient control of the Bolt-spawning areas and should instead support his teammates in racking up Bolts.
  • In Brawl Ball, he can be quite useful by kicking the ball forward and using his Super to roll into and retrieve the Ball. You can use it for retrieving the Ball from the center after either team scores, though it will put him in the middle of the fight and likely results in him being defeated. You can also use his Super on an enemy who's carrying the Ball, which knocks it from their possession and knocks them back. This can be used to defend the goal by delaying an enemy who's about to score.

Recommended Build

  • In maps with a lot of bushes, use Darryl's Recoiling Rotator Gadget to scout out the area. You can find enemies easier that way. The Gadget is also very useful for attacking the enemy safe in Heist. Position yourself right in the center of the safe and activate the Gadget as quickly as possible, moving clockwise a little to ensure that as many shells as possible hits.
  • Darryl's Steel Hoops Star Power can act as a secondary shield in numerous situations. He can use it to roll onto enemies normally so he's shielded while attacking them after rolling or use it in Siege to stay alive longer while attacking the IKE in Siege.
  • Darryl's Rolling Reload Star Power allows him to ambush and defeat tanks more easily with his Super, because it can drastically increase his damage output. He can also use this to roll onto the enemy safe in Heist and deal extreme amounts of damage. Rolling Reload is also handy if you can't directly hit a Brawler with your Super, allowing you to potentially chip them down from further away with your increased reload speed. It also helps when you desperately need to roll onto someone but have no ammo left.

Strategies

  • Hitting a brawler with the edge of Darryl's Super can momentarily knock them back, and Darryl can deal significant damage while they are still knocked back.
  • If timed properly while rolling onto an opponent, Darryl's Super can cancel an enemy's Super due to the knockback, like how Frank's Super can be cancelled with Shelly's Super. This becomes useful when attacking other Brawlers with Darryl who have their Supers ready (like Frank).

Other

  • Darryl moves slightly faster than most other Brawlers since he is a tank. Due to this, retreating/approaching is easier and often safer.
  • His Super is great for quickly escaping enemies/dangerous situations or getting closer to enemies along with the fact that Darryl rolls extremely quickly and is shielded while rolling. It's also worth noting that you can increase the range of his roll if you happen to roll over water. This is vital when escaping enemies, as the water could help in getting away from tough situations (in maps like Acid Lakes or Canal Grande, etc.).
  • Darryl's Super can hit multiple times when fighting in confined areas (which is optimal for Darryl as a tank). Aim his Super to bounce off walls and rack up damage on your enemies.
  • When confronting enemies at point-blank range, be mindful of your positioning and don't go through them as the second shot of Darryl's attack can completely miss.
  • Darryl's main attack deals a lot of damage but not consistently. When targeting someone with his Super, make sure he actually rolls into them and hits them. If he's too close, he might roll over them. If he's too far, he can hit them but won't be within bursting range. Tar Barrel's slowing effect allows him to catch up to enemies in case his Super misses by a few tiles.
