"Mortis dashes forward with each swing of his shovel. As his Super attack, he sends a cloud of bats to damage enemies and heal himself!"
Mortis Portrait

Mortis is a Mythic Brawler who is unique in that his Attack includes movement. He dashes forward and damages enemies that he hits. For his Super, Mortis summons a swarm of bats that drain the health of his enemies whilst restoring his own by that amount. Mortis has a moderate amount of health and damage output. His first Star Power, Creepy Harvest, heals himself for 1800 health when he kills an enemy brawler and his second Star Power, Coiled Snake, increases his dash range by 75% should he have all three ammo bars filled as well as his yellow bar.

Attack: Shovel Swing

"Mortis dashes forward with a sharp swing of his shovel, creating business opportunities for himself."
Mortis dashes forward a short distance, dealing moderate damage to any enemy Brawlers in his path. Mortis cannot perform his Attack without dashing unless he dashes toward a nearby wall. This Attack is technically a melee attack, but the dash effectively gives it a short range.

Super: Life Blood

"Mortis calls forth a swarm of vampire bats that drain the health of his enemies while restoring his. Creepy!"
Mortis will shoot bats in a single direction. If the bats come in contact with an enemy, they deal damage and heal Mortis equal to the damage dealt. Mortis will heal the full amount possible for his level of Super even if the enemy hit has less health left than its maximum damage, but if the bats miss, Mortis does not heal. The bats move quickly, pass over walls, and travel a long distance making this a hard attack to avoid. If the bats hit multiple enemies, they deal the full damage and the heal Mortis receives is multiplied by the number of enemies hit, making it possible for Mortis to heal himself dramatically if the bats hit several enemies.

Star Powers

Creepy Harvest

"Mortis reaps the life essence of Brawler he defeats, restoring 1800 of his health."
After gaining Mortis' Star Power, he heals himself 1800 health after defeating an enemy brawler.

Coiled Snake

"Mortis gains a Dash Bar! His dash range is increased by 75% when the bar is fully charged. It takes 3.5 seconds for the bar to charge when Mortis has all three dashes ready."
When Mortis applies his Star Power and has his three dashes, his dash range is increased by 75%, slightly shorter than Nita's range. This allows you to travel 3/4 the distance as you normally would with him, but in order to use the dash bar, all three attacks have to be unused. Once you use the dash bar, you'd also be using your first attack.


  • The dash that comes with Mortis' main Attack makes him highly mobile. He can quickly attack and dash away and out of danger, making him tricky to land hits on. He can also run away with his speed if he runs out of ammo.
  • When retreating/escaping, avoid using auto-fire since you'll dash into the enemy you're trying to escape from.
  • Mortis' Super can act as a powerful fourth attack in tight situations. Use it when he gets low on health and needs a quick heal. Try to hit as many enemies as possible with the Super so that he recovers more health. It also has considerable range and travels quite quickly, which can be used to snipe low health Brawlers even over walls.
  • Only attack brawlers that you can take out in 3 attacks (and a super if it is ready) because Mortis has one of the slowest reload speeds in the game, meaning that if you cannot take them out in said attacks, they will reload first and take you out.
  • Close range brawlers should be avoided at all costs except when they are retreating due to low health, in which case it's recommended to ambush them and/or finish them off. The only exceptions to this being characters like Pam, Bo, and Leon, which all have continuous attacks for a single attack, which can be avoided by dashing behind them.
  • Mortis counters Dynamike, Barley and Tick well. His dash is effective for dodging their slow attacks.
  • In Showdown, Mortis can do well by simply hiding and staying out of fights, dashing away when necessary. If you see a fight between other Brawlers, wait out-of-sight nearby and when the fight is over, dash in and defeat the surviving Brawler if they took enough damage or steal all the Power Cubes and escape.
  • While attacking, Mortis can dash through his victims, so when you are being chased by Bull or El Primo, try making a sudden attack by dashing two to three times in their direction and run away. You might have a chance of taking them by surprise and escape when closing in a corner, and help to charge up your Super at the same time. However try not to spend too much time within their effective range since most heavy brawlers deal quite a lot of damage up close.
  • Mortis' reload speed is by far the slowest in the entire game, which means that after a kill, you should immediately retreat and reload.
  • Mortis' first Star Power heals him for a considerable amount when killing an enemy brawler. It is incredibly useful and sometimes necessary to be kept alive while taking fire from enemy brawlers. This can be especially useful in Bounty as you can kill an opponent and regain your health for another attack.
  • In Bounty, Mortis' dash attack is able to grab the first star in the middle easily, and then able to dash forward to kill enemies. This strategy can be risky if the enemy team has heavy brawlers such as El Primo or Bull, but can be very beneficial in getting an early lead if executed correctly.
  • In Brawl Ball, you can kick the ball and dash once (if you dash immediately after kicking the ball) or twice (if you wait until the ball reaches the maximum range) to pick it up again, even so this is not favorable, as Mortis has a very low recharge speed and kicking the ball wastes ammo. You can also use your Super and dash onto the ball (preferably with Coiled Snake) to go extremely far distances.
  • Mortis is an effective counter to Frank, due to Frank's huge delay when attacking, you have enough time to dash behind him before the attack hits. This is even easier if they choose to use their super on you.
  • In Duo Showdown, since Mortis can't check bushes, have your teammate check before you rush in.
  • If you want to check bushes, try to bait whoever you suspect may be there and then dash away to escape (unless it's a brawler that you can take on with ease, like Piper or Crow for example).
  • Coiled Snake, Mortis’ second star power, allows you to escape or commence fights with ease. Remember that you need time for it to charge up.
  • Creepy Harvest is very good in Bounty. It allows you to go up to a group of brawlers and get some quick kills, and heal back up immediately. Mortis does quick, fast damage so it will be hard to escape.
  • Mortis' super can go through walls, meaning you can hit brawlers behind them. You can do this to get some quick health without risk of dying.
  • In Brawl Ball, try to get your teammates to distract the opposition. Then, as a Mortis, grab the ball, use dash attacks to move quickly, to score the goal. Repeat if possible.
