"Fuelled by energy drinks, Max speeds to the scene whenever someone needs help. She never sticks around long enough to do much... but she sure is fast!"
Max Portrait

Max is a Mythic Brawler with moderate health, a moderate damage output, and a very fast movement speed. For her attack, Max rapidly fires 4 long-ranged projectiles in a slight spread. Her Super momentarily boosts the movement speed of her and nearby allies. Her first Gadget, Phase Shifter, makes her dash in the direction she is facing and gains an immunity shield while dashing. Her second Gadget, Sneaky Sneakers, creates a teleporting location icon that she teleports back to after 3 seconds with her initial health. Her first Star Power, Super Charged, automatically charges her Super while she's moving. Her second Star Power, Run n' Gun, increases her reload speed while she's moving. Her Hypercharge, Unlimited Energy, makes her next Super throw energy drinks to herself and all allies, momentarily boosting the movement speed of her and allies, and charging her allies' Supers.

Attack: Faster Blaster

"Max's blaster shoots a bunch of projectiles fast! It holds a lot of rounds, and Max is quick with the reload."

Max fires 4 staggered, long-ranged projectiles from her blaster with a slight spread in quick succession. She uniquely has four ammo slots, and her ammo reloads quickly. The attack has a short cooldown, taking 0.55 seconds to complete.

Super: Let's Go!

"Max momentarily boosts up her movement speed and that of nearby allies. Gotta go fast!"

Max drinks some energy drink from a bottle and creates an area-of-effect around her that lasts for 1 second and increases the movement speed of her and teammates inside the area-of-effect by 300 points for 4 seconds. Her teammates retain the movement speed boost even after leaving the radius.

Gadgets

Phase Shifter

"Max dashes forward, and becomes immune to all damage from enemies while dashing."
GD-Max1

Max dashes 3.33 tiles in the direction she is facing, gaining an immunity shield while dashing. However, she cannot dash through walls or water and the dash will be interrupted if she dashes into any of them. Status effects, stuns, and knockbacks can still be applied during the dash and she still retains any pre-existing status effects afterwards. This doesn't affect her Super Charged Star Power's Super charging speed.

Sneaky Sneakers

"Max blinks back to a place of her choosing after 3.0 seconds delay, recovering any damage she received in the meantime."
GD-Max2

Upon activation, Max places a thunderbolt icon at her current location and gains a Gadget symbol above her head along with a bar that counts down to 3 seconds. After those 3 seconds, she teleports back to the icon with the health she had at activation time. If she had any status effects, such as Crow or Byron's poison, she retains the status effects. However, if she is defeated before she teleports, her Gadget charge is consumed, but she won't teleport.

Star Powers

Super Charged

"Max now charges her Super while moving."
SP-Max1

Max's Super automatically recharges while moving, similar to Darryl and Edgar. Her Super stops charging when she's not moving. If she continuously moves, it takes around 66 seconds to fully charge up a Super; speed boosts increase the Super charge rate and therefore decreases the time needed to reload a Super. This Star Power does not charge Max's Hypercharge.

Run n' Gun

"Max reloads faster while moving."
SP-Max2

Max's attack reloads slightly faster than normal while moving. This is affected by Max's movement speed; she reloads faster if she has a movement speed boost (like her Super) than if she doesn't, similarly to her Super Charged Star Power. Her reload speed is approximately 15.56% faster when moving at normal speed.

Hypercharge: Unlimited Energy

"Max throws an energy drink to each team member, increasing their movement speed and granting them 25% Super charge."
Max-Hypercharge

When activated, Max's next Super throws an energy drink to herself and all allies, regardless of whether they are in range of her Super or not. All targeted allies receive a movement speed increase, and 25% of their Super charged if the energy drinks hit. She also gains a 24% speed boost, a 25% damage boost, and a 5% shield boost.

Max's ammo instantly reloaded whenever she attacks.

Tips

  • Max can act like an assassin, using her fast reload speed and attack cooldown to burst enemies down and her movement speed to dodge enemy fire. After getting within range, follow and chip away at enemies until you eliminate them. If they manage to somehow escape, such as with Edgar's Super, use your Super and/or her Phase Shifter Gadget and rush them.
  • Max's Super can be used to catch up to fleeing enemies or ensure an easier escape from pursuing enemies. This makes her good with guerrilla tactics because she can rush in with her Super, deal a lot of damage, and escape with her Super before she takes any serious damage.
  • Auto-aiming at long range with Max, in most cases, will hit 3 of her projectiles. Because of this, auto-aiming is a good strategy while playing Max, but most of the time enemies are moving. Practice mirroring the enemy's movement to hit all 4 projectiles, and at the tip of her range, it's good to use practices commonly applied to sharpshooters.
  • To make use of Max's Star Powers, don't stand still. Even spinning in place or pacing in a line can make use of the Star Powers.
  • Max's attack has a range similar to Tara's, and while it doesn't deal much damage if only one projectile hits, the fact that Max has 4 ammo slots, coupled with her much faster reload speed, attack cooldown, and tighter spread, means she can consistently provide suppressive fire and chip away at enemies, unlike most long-ranged Brawlers who reload slower.
  • Max's Super Charged Star Power works better in team events like Gem Grab or Hot Zone where Max will need to play as a support. Her Run n' Gun Star Power allows her to maintain the damage output of a typical sharpshooter and is preferred in Special Event modes like Boss Fight, Super City Rampage, and Robo Rumble, where her Super Charged Star Power charges her Super much less efficiently than normal. In Showdown, choose your Star Power based on your play style; use Super Charged if you're more passive, and use Run n' Gun if you'll like picking fights and collecting Power Cubes.
  • Max can use her Phase Shifter Gadget to absorb a high-damaging projectile like Nani's Super to survive at crucial times or for a valuable teammate in order to help them survive. This, however, requires precise timing. Similarly, as long as you have sufficiently high health, Max can use her Sneaky Sneakers Gadget to absorb multiple projectiles and then teleport back safely with full health.
  • Max's Sneaky Sneakers Gadget allows her to play aggressively for 3 seconds without major repercussions. After dropping it on the ground, take time pressuring enemies before returning to her original location for better opportunities. Do note that high-damaging enemies such as Bull can ambush you when you teleport to your original location, as the location is made obvious by the icon Max leaves upon activating the Gadget, so therefore, refrain from using the Gadget near bushes or enemy spawn points.
  • Max's Sneaky Sneakers Gadget is useful in Showdown when you want to defeat a vulnerable enemy such as a thrower but you are in danger of being third-partied by someone else. You can drop your Sneaky Sneakers Gadget and then try defeating the enemy. You'll likely be low on health after fighting the enemy, and will be a target for other enemies, but you'll teleport back to your Gadget's location and regain lost health. All the same, make sure to use this Gadget only when you're away from enemies, or contained by obstacles to avoid being ambushed where you'll teleport. Also, avoid staying too far from the Gadget location with your Super, because you'll never know who's attempting to ambush you when you return, and you should save your Super as an escape tool for such situations.
  • Max's Hypercharge energy drinks actually have a small splash radius, allowing them to charge the Supers of multiple allies. Although unpractical in most situations, if Max and her allies are stacked on top of each other (such as after respawning), using the Hypercharge and then Super will cause 3 energy drinks to hit all allies, granting them each 75% Super charge.
