"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 has the ability to briefly turn invisible to his enemies using his Super. He has medium health and high damage output at close range. As his blades travel, their damage is reduced. Leon has one of the fastest movement speeds as well. His Gadget, Clone Projector, creates a fake version of himself to confuse enemies. His first Star Power, Smoke Trails, gives him a movement speed boost while invisible. His second Star Power, Invisiheal, heals him 1000 health per second while he is invisible.

Attack: Spinner Blades

"Leon flicks his wrist and fires four Spinner Blades. The blades deal less damage the farther they travel."
Leon fires 4 long-range blades in quick succession. The damage dealt depends on how far they travel before hitting their targets. Targets close to Leon take the most damage, and targets at a distance take significantly less damage.

Super: Smoke Bomb

"Leon becomes invisible for 6 seconds. If he attacks, he will be revealed. Enemies close to Leon will be able to spot him."
Leon turns himself invisible for 6 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. If Leon attacks while invisible, he loses his invisibility. If he takes damage during his Super, he will be visible for a split second. Note that unlike most Brawlers, Leon's Super charges based on damage dealt rather than number of hits. Using his Super will also cancel the natural health regeneration.

Picking up items (like Gems in Gem Grab, Power Cubes in Showdown, or Bolts in Siege) will make him visible for a moment. Holding the ball in Brawl Ball or the present in Present Plunder while invisible will make him visible too. Enemy minions (such as Nita's bear) cannot locate him while invisible, but allied minions (such as Tara's Healing Shade) can still detect Leon while invisible.

Gadget: Clone Projector

"Leon creates an illusion of himself to confuse his enemies."
Leon makes a copy of himself, allowing him to create a diversion to confuse enemies or allow him to run away. The clone will chase down the nearest enemy but cannot attack and will simply not do anything when it reaches the enemy. It will use Leon's health at the time of use and will copy the number of items (such as number of Gems, Power Cubes, etc.) that Leon himself has. However, the clone will take twice as much damage from enemy attacks and cannot be healed. The clone will vanish when defeated, if Leon summons another one, or when it has not disappeared after 10 seconds. When used in Big Game as the boss, it will have the same amount of health as Leon.

Star Powers

Smoke Trails

"When Leon uses his Super, he gains a 24% boost to his movement speed for the duration of his invisibility."
Leon's movement speed increases by 24% whenever his Super is active, allowing him to move much quicker while invisible.

Invisiheal

"Leon recovers 1000 health per second while his Super is active."
If Leon has missing health while using his Super, he gains 1000 health every second for the duration of his Super, for up to a total of 6000 health if he does not cancel his Super with an attack. He will still continue to heal even after being hit by an enemy.

Tips

  • Leon's fast movement speed can be good for running away from enemies, as he is generally faster than most other brawlers.
  • Leon can deal lots of damage if he hits all of the blades in his attack at short-range. Utilize 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.
  • You can flash your Super as you walk into a bush to make your enemies think that you have gone invisible. This allows you to heal up in the bush whilst your enemies scan the arena, thereby wasting their ammunition.
  • Leon's blades have a 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. 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 multi-defeats because of his slow reload and vulnerability.
  • In Showdown, Leon has two options for play styles, 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 defeated. Leon then finishes off the winning brawler and collects both power cube batches.
  • Leon's Smoke Trails grants him the second-fastest movement speed in the game for the duration of his Super, making him incredibly hard to hit. This is also useful for making quick getaways or to engage someone faster.
  • Leon's Invisiheal heals him for 1000 health every second for 6 seconds (unless you attack before the Super's duration ends, which is not recommended with this Star Power), which effectively gives him 6000 additional health. This is preferable over Smoke Trails in-game modes like Gem Grab, Showdown, and Siege, where Leon might need to collect powerups or objectives while staying invisible and also healing if detected.
  • When using Leon's Invisiheal, try activating his Super right before an engagement. Waiting to attack once in close proximity while the enemy unloads their shots, healing for 1000 health per second, can give Leon the ammo and health advantage to win more close up battles.
  • Leon's Super can be used both offensively and defensively. When in a bad position, use your Super to sneak behind enemy lines and take out brawlers. If you are carrying a lot of gems or have a high bounty, use your invisibility to run away, making it hard for the opposition to attack you.
  • Leon can use his invisibility in maps with Launch pads to trick enemies that you've been launched.
  • Leon's Clone Projector Gadget can prove to be incredibly useful in some situations, i.e against a Shelly or Colt with his/her Super. They will probably fire their super at the clone, effectively wasting it. Do not try this when on low health, because your clone will reciprocate the amount of health you have and the fact that it's charging at a person will give it away.
  • Leon's Clone Projector can chase the closest enemy even when he/she is inside a bush, letting Leon detect if the bushes have enemy Brawlers.
  • If necessary to step into the poison gas in Showdown, you can quickly escape a close fight using Leon’s Star Power, Invisiheal. His healing while invisible will contradict the same damage taken by the gas, so you will be able to withstand the damage for a few seconds.
  • His Star Powers: Invisiheal and Smoke Trails are good for different situations. That means that if it is a mode where in you have to stay you must use Invisiheal and for going somewhere or escaping use Smoke Trails.
  • Leon's Gadget, Clone Projector, can be used as a shield to absorb damage from enemies with a non-piercing attack.
