"Leon shoots a quick salvo of blades at his target. His Super trick is a smoke bomb that makes him invisible for a little while!"
Leon Portrait

Leon is a Legendary Brawler who can turn invisible for a short time when using his Super. He has medium health and high damage output if the enemy is close. As the blades travel, their damage is reduced. Leon has the fastest movement speed as well (tied with Crow and Mortis). His first Star Power, Smoke Trails, gives him an increased speed when he uses his Super and his second Star Power, Invisiheal, heals him 800 health for the duration of his Super.

Attack: Spinner Blades

"Leon flicks his wrist and fires four Spinner Blades. The blades deal less damage the farther they travel."
He fires 4 (four) long range blades in quick succession per Attack. The damage dealt depends on how far they travel before hitting their targets. Targets close to Leon take the most damage. Targets at a distance take far less damage, making his attack deal the least amount of damage in the game at far-range.

Super: Smoke Bomb

"Leon becomes invisible for 7 seconds. If he attacks, he will be revealed. Enemies close to Leon will be able to spot him."
Leon turns himself invisible for 7 seconds, allowing him to either retreat or ambush an enemy. Enemy Brawlers will only be able to see him if they are within 4 tiles of him. Picking up Gem Grab Gems or Showdown Power Cubes or taking damage will make him visible for a split second. Holding the Brawl Ball while invisible will make him visible too. Jessie's Turret and Penny's Cannon can detect Leon if he is in range and will start attacking. Nita's Bear and Tara's shadow cannot locate him while invisible. If Leon attacks while being invisible, he will no longer be invisible.

Star Powers

Smoke Trails

"When Leon uses his Super, he gains a 24% boost to his movement speed for the duration of his invisibility."
After unlocking his Star Power, Leon has increased his movement speed by 24% whenever his Super is active, allowing him to move much quicker while invisible.

Invisiheal

"Leon recovers 800 health per second while his Super is active."
If Leon is at low health and he uses his super, he gains 5600 health over 7 seconds. He heals for 800 health per second at a rapid pace. If he gets hit by an enemy brawler and he doesn't attack, then he'd still be gaining 800 health.

Tips

  • Leon's fast movement speed can be good for running away from enemies, as it is generally faster than most other brawlers.
  • Leon can deal an incredible amount of damage if he hits all of the blades in his attack at short range. Utilise walls and bushes to get as close as possible to enemy Brawlers and unleash a quick and deadly strike that has the potential to defeat all but the toughest of Brawlers.
  • With his Super, Leon can even more effectively ambush Brawlers. Use it wisely to rush Brawlers and catch them off-guard.
  • In Heist, Leon's Super can be used to sneak behind enemy lines to attack the safe on the other side of the map.
  • Leon can be used effectively in Bounty as well. His Super allows him to pick off opponents one by one, racking up huge amounts of stars for the team.
  • Leon's Super can prove ineffective when used near an opponent when they know your path. Using his Super when hiding in bushes can make your escape route increasingly unpredictable; by doing this, enemies can have a hard time finding him after firing at the now unoccupied bushes.
  • Leon's blades have deceptively long range and a spread that widens as they travel. Poke down your enemies and build up your Super before slipping into stealth to finish the job at close range.
  • Leon's Attack can be concentrated or spread out by strafing left or right while attacking, similarly to Bo. This is particularly useful while checking bushes and for denying more area. However, unlike Bo, since Leon's blades shoot out much faster than Bo's arrows, there is less potential for this.
  • Conserving ammo is also particularly more important with Leon. His mediocre health paired with his relatively slow reload speed makes him vulnerable while in close range with an enemy Brawler who has managed to dodge/survive Leon's Attacks.
  • Both of Leon's Star Powers are really useful for Brawl Ball, Smoke Trails can be used to snatch the ball quickly while enemies are unsuspecting of Leon's presence. and Invisiheal can grant Leon an exceptional survivability boost which lets him soak much more damage from multiple enemies who are present at their goal.
  • Unlike most "Assassins", Leon is used for eliminating one enemy at a time, and does not have the potential for multikills.
  • In Showdown, Leon has two options for playstyles, one is a Roamer and the other is a Third Party. Roamers (like Crow, Darryl etc.) walk around the map searching for potential targets and pick off one by one. Third Parties (like Mortis, Crow) search for two people who are already engaged in combat, and wait (preferably in a nearby bush) till one of the two is killed. Leon then finishes off the winning brawler and collects both power cube batches.
  • Leon's Smoke Trails Star Power grants him the fastest movement speed in the game for the duration of his super, making him incredibly hard to hit. This star power is also useful for making quick getaways or to engage someone faster.
  • Leon's Invisiheal Star Power heals him for 800 health every second for 7 seconds (unless you attack before the Super duration ends, which is not recommended with this Star Power), which effectively gives him 5600 additional health. This is preferable over Smoke Trails in gamemodes like Gem Grab, Showdown, Siege and Lone Star, where Leon might need to collect powerups/objectives while staying invisible and also healing if detected.
