"Lou is a cool guy, literally! He can dole out all kinds of chill stuff. But watch your step on the ice, and be careful not to get brain freeze!"
Lou Portrait.png

Lou is a Chromatic Brawler that could be unlocked as a Brawl Pass reward at Tier 30 from Season 4: Holiday Getaway or can be unlocked from Brawl Boxes after reaching Tier 30 in the Season 4 Brawl Pass. Lou has moderate health and damage, and has immense utility in both his attack and Super. Lou throws snow cones at enemy, which apply Frost that fills their Frost meter. Fully filling an enemy's Frost meter will stun them briefly. His Super creates a fairly large area of ice that slows down enemies and makes maneuvering harder. His Gadget, Ice Block, makes him immobile but invulnerable for a second. His first Star Power, Supercool, fills enemies' Frost meter when they’re inside Lou's Super’s area-of-effect. His second Star Power, Hypothermia, decreases enemies' reload speed depending on their Frost.

Attack: Brain Freeze

"Barraging opponents with snow cones, Lou can eventually freeze them in place for 1.5 seconds."
Frost Meter.png

Lou throws 3 long-ranged snow cones in a straight line in quick succession. They deal low damage each but moderate damage when all three projectiles hit. After hitting an enemy with even just one projectile, a Frost meter appears to the left of the enemy's name. Lou can only apply Frost on Brawlers, Siege Robots, and appropriate entities in Boss Fight, Robo Rumble, and Super City Rampage. Each snow cone applies the same Frost percentage as his Super charge rate, 15.73%. After the Frost meter is filled up, the enemy will freeze in place for 1.5 seconds. If Frost isn’t applied for 2 seconds, the Frost meter begins to deplete by 5% every second. Frost can stack with multiple Lous. This attack takes 0.45 seconds to complete.

Super: Can-Do

"Lou lobs a can of freezing cold syrup that creates an icy, slippery area on the ground. Very tough for his opponents' fancy footwork!"

Lou lobs snow cone syrup over obstacles and creates a icy, slippery area on the field. Any enemy Brawler who changes direction while moving on the area will have difficulty maneuvering, similar to slipping on ice. This doesn’t affect Lou or his allies. The slippery area also deals minimal amounts of damage every second to enemies who are trapped in it, preventing healing.

Gadget: Ice Block

"Lou shields himself with ice, becoming invulnerable for 1.0 seconds."

Lou becomes completely impervious to all damage for 1 second aside from knockbacks, pulls and stuns. Lou can’t move or do anything during the Gadget’s usage.

Star Powers

Supercool

"Opponents standing on Lou's Super area get gradually frozen, like from his Brain Freeze attack."

Lou's Super now gradually applies 14% Frost every second onto enemies. This effect stacks with his regular attack, so an enemy standing in the ice who is attacked by Lou gets frozen quickly.

Hypothermia

"Opponents lose up to 75% of their reload speed based on how frozen they are from Lou's attacks."

Enemies lose 5% of their reload speed for every tick of Frost up to 75%. This maxes at 75% Frost or roughly 5 attacks.

Tips

  • Lou's Frost can freeze the enemy team, in which while playing certain 3v3 modes like Gem Grab, this can give Lou and his team an advantage. He can freeze the enemy Gem Carrier, and the Gem Carrier will be vulnerable to being stunned and quickly killed. With his Super (on the Gem mine) and the Supercool Star Power, Gem collecting for enemies will be slowed drastically while allowing quick Gem collection for Lou and his allies because enemies are more vulnerable to being stunned and defeated while on the Gem mine.
  • His Super can completely cover zones in Hot Zone. He can use this to his and team’s advantage as enemies can’t enter the hot zone(s) without slowing down and being quickly defeated with ease from Lou and his teammates.
  • Since his Super makes enemies slow down and makes maneuvering harder, enemies will attempt to escape by moving in the same direction, which makes attacks easier to hit and enemy movement to be predictable. With the Supercool Star Power, this is better justified and is frivolous to enemies, because if they’re stacked with the attacks and Super, they’ll be quickly stunned and defeated, not to mention they’ll also have trouble maneuvering. Additively, the faster speed a Brawler has, the more struggle they have changing directions in Lou's Super. This makes Lou an ideal counter to speedy Brawlers like tanks, Max, Mortis, and airborne Brawlers such as Edgar and El Primo.
  • Lou has a great synergy with Edgar and other close-ranged brawlers. Lou can stun and slow the enemies with his attack and Super (more effective with his Supercool Star Power), and Edgar can jump onto the affected enemies and quickly defeat them.
  • Lou can stun enemies easily with 3 shots, which is useful in Showdown, Duo Showdown, Bounty, or Lone Star, as he can quickly defeat enemies or escape if he’s in danger.
  • Lou can be powerful in Brawl Ball or Trophy Thieves because his attack stuns enemies, making them drop the ball or trophy with 3 shots.
  • In Boss Fight, Robo Rumble or Super City Rampage, similarly to Bibi, Lou can apply Frost and stun the Big/Boss Robot or Mega Monster and cancel out an attack being performed, and with Lou's fast reload and unload speed, he can do this consistently. With his Super, he can also slow the Boss/Mega Monster down, as it’ll struggle to move or launch an attack. These few extra seconds from stunning the Boss can affect the outcome of the match drastically.
  • Lou is also useful in Siege, as the stunning method also works when defending or offending, as he can stun the enemy Siege Robot and prevent it from moving. He can also stun the enemy IKE, allowing teammates to destroy the IKE with ease.
  • Lou should use his Ice Block Gadget mainly to avoid extremely high-damaging projectiles only, like the Supers of Nani and Dynamike, or the potentially deadly long-range projectiles of the Boss Robot in Boss Fight if Lou or his teammates are low on health and need to escape, or if Lou is the last teammate alive, and not to use it with low-damaging projectiles or melee attacks, because he is immobile during the Gadget’s usage.
  • Lou’s Frost is already devastating to enemies because it stuns them, but with the Hypothermia Star Power, the enemies’ attacks will be extremely ineffective, because enemies will lose their reload speed and they’ll also be frozen.
  • When escaping an enemy Lou's Super, if possible, it is almost always better to turn lightly, up to 90 degrees, instead of making a U-turn as the deceleration would be limited by Lou's Super.
  • Despite his stuns being ineffective against the boss, Lou still does decent in Big Game as a Hunter because he can keep dealing damage to the Boss with his long range, fast reload speed, Super, and reliable damage. He is more useful as the Big Boss, as he can repeatedly stun the Hunters and prevent them from attacking him. He can also use his Super to slow down grouped-up enemies, since his attacks don’t pierce. Coupled with his fast reload speed, his attacks, and his Super, he can prove devastating to the Hunters, especially with the Big Boss Upgrades.
