"Griff is the proprietor of Starr Park's gift shop. Business is bad, but he still throws coins away - from his employees' tip jar!"
Griff Portrait.png

Griff is an Epic Brawler who could be unlocked early for a limited time in the Griff Challenge or from Brawl Boxes. Griff has moderate health and a high damage output. He attacks by firing 3 waves of 3 coins that each spread out in a cone. His Super throws 5 banknotes that travel forward and return to him, deal more damage the farther they travel, and spread out in a cone. His Gadget, Piggy Bank, drops a piggy bank that explodes after a delay, dealing area damage and knocking enemies back while also destroying obstacles. His Star Power, Keep the Change, allows him to unload his attack faster.

Attack: Coin Toss

"Angry Griff pelts opponents with coins. He throws three salvos that spread out in a cone."

Griff fires 3 waves of three coins that each spread out in a cone formation. If most of or all of the coins hit an enemy, the attack deals a high amount of damage, making the attack more effective at close range. His attack's unload speed is slow, taking 1.05 seconds to complete.

Super: Cashback

"Griff throws a bunch of sharp-edged banknotes in a wide cone. Too valuable to just give away, they return to him, and may cause paper cuts twice to the same target. Opponents further away take more damage."

Griff throws 5 banknotes that travel forward, spin for 1 second, and return to him, dealing damage when traveling and returning. Just like Carl‘s attack, the banknotes can’t travel through obstacles when thrown, but can travel through obstacles when returning. The cards pierce through enemies, spread out in a cone, and deal more damage the farther they travel.

Gadget: Piggy Bank

"Griff drops a firecracker-filled piggy bank that, after a short delay, explodes destroying obstacles and dealing 1000 damage to opponents within range."

Griff drops a piggy bank that explodes after 2.5 seconds, dealing 1000 damage and knocking enemies back while also destroying obstacles in a 2.67 tile radius.

Star Power: Keep the Change

"Furious Griff tosses coins faster, reducing the time for a full salvo by 35%."

Griff reduces the unload speed of a full attack by 35%, which reduces it from 1.05 seconds to 0.68 seconds.


  • Although Griff can hit more banknotes with his Super at close range, the less damage per banknote dealt at close range results in less Super charge. Prioritize his Super on farther enemies to deal high damage, receive sufficient Super recharge, and a sufficient amount of time to reposition himself for the banknotes to hit more enemies while they’re returning.
  • The slow speed of the coins makes it difficult for Griff to compete with long-ranged Brawlers. His attack is more effective at close range, so maintain a decent distance from enemies that’s close enough to attack them with ease.
  • Griff's Keep the Change Star Power offers him more protection against close-ranged Brawlers, though he’ll still struggle against them if they maintain a very close range of him. In that case, Griff’s Super can be used to defend himself.
  • Griff's Super can force enemies out of where his Super traveled, especially if the enemies have low health. You can use this to maintain area control, like with controlling the zones in Hot Zone, the Gem mine in Gem Grab, or the Bolt spawns in Siege.
  • Griff's attack and Super’s high damage output coupled with his reasonable reload speed make him viable in Heist. In addition, Griff's Keep The Change Star Power increases his unload speed, therefore allowing him to consistently attack, and his Piggy Bank Gadget is useful in defense and offense to knock enemies away from the team’s safe or to deal extra damage to the enemy safe.
  • If enemies are hiding and taking cover behind obstacles, you can use your Piggy Bank Gadget to destroy those obstacles and then use your high-damaging attack to eliminate them.
  • When facing other high-damaging Brawlers with a thin width or spread such as Brock, Bea, or Amber, Griff should move to the direction where the enemy isn’t attacking and attack from there, and if the enemy switches their direction of attack, move to another direction. This strategy, when executed correctly, should secure a defeat against them while Griff takes little to no damage.
