El Primo Portrait

El Primo is a Rare Brawler who attacks with his fists, doing major damage to enemies that he is able to get close enough to. El Primo also has very high health, allowing him to withstand a lot of damage. With his Super, he can jump a long distance and crash down on opponents, dealing damage.

Attack: Fists of Fury

"El Primo fires off a furious flurry of four fiery fists. That's a spicy jalapeno knuckle sandwich!"
El Primo fires off a burst of four punches at short range doing high damage. El Primo must be quite close to his targets to damage them, but he cannot damage targets that he is right on top of. His punches hit a fair sized area, so it is possible for him to hit multiple enemies with each punch.

Super: Flying Elbow Drop

"Leaping high, El Primo drops an Intergalactic Elbow that knocks around enemies and destroy cover!"
When El Primo's Super is used, he jumps a short distance dealing damage and knocking back enemy Brawlers. The damage dealt is rather minor. His Super is mostly used to get El Primo into range of enemy Brawlers so that he can hit them with his main Attack. While in the air, El Primo is completely immune to all damage besides damage applied over time.

Star Power: El Fuego

"Enemies caught in El Primo’s Super will burn for 800 damage over 4 seconds."
When El Primo uses his Super, he sets fire to enemies that he hits at the end of his leap. This burning effect causes affected enemies to take a total of 800 damage over 4 seconds. It is very similar to Crow's poison effect.


  • El Primo can do high damage but his attacks have a very short range. To knock out powerful ranged Brawlers, you must find a way to maneuver El Primo into range before the enemy Brawler can move away. Otherwise, they will be able to knock out El Primo without taking damage.
  • El Primo's Super allows him to move a long distance relatively quickly, so it can be used to catch up to enemy Brawlers who are running away, escape dangerous situations, and reach and attack long-range Brawlers.
  • His Star Power has the ability to prevent enemies who are caught in his leap from healing for an additional 4 seconds, raising the required time for a brawler to start auto-regeneration from 3 seconds to 7 seconds.
  • El Primo's Super is very useful in Heist because he can jump to the safe and start rapidly punching it without going around the safe's walls. Also, while he's at it, he can break the wall too, allowing other teammates to get to the safe easily.
  • When playing El Primo in Gem Grab, he can be used to push back the enemy Brawlers, giving your team a chance to take control of the middle.
  • When playing Brawl Ball, El Primo's Super is effective in knocking the ball out of opponent's control and dealing damage, thereby preventing them from scoring easily.
