"Penny doesn't care about studying old maps or puzzling over sea shanty riddles. She's a pirate so she can blow stuff up and grab whatever she wants!"
Penny Portrait

Penny is a Super Rare Brawler with moderate health and a variable damage output, but a slow reload speed. Penny's attack fires a pouch of gold that deals splash damage when it hits a target. Her Super deploys a mortar with low health that lobs high-damaging, long-ranged cannonballs that also briefly set the ground on fire. Her first Gadget, Salty Barrel, drops a barrel that block non-piercing enemy fire and make Penny's attack splash out upon being hit. Her second Gadget, Trusty Spyglass, makes her cannon fire a cannonball at every enemy within range. Her first Star Power, Heavy Coffers, allows her attack to spread wider upon hitting an enemy. Her second Star Power, Master Blaster, makes her cannon knock back and deal damage to nearby enemies when deployed.

Attack: Plunderbuss

"Shoots out a pouch of fool's gold. If the pouch hits an enemy, it bursts and coins pepper targets behind the first enemy."

Penny shoots a medium-sized pouch of gold. If it hits an opposing target, it sprays three additional clumps of golden coins behind the target in a cone formation that travel for 5.33 tiles, piercing opponents and dealing 75% damage of the pouch for each clump of gold. With this, she can deal double or even triple the damage of her attack if she's attacking multiple targets. However, the pouch itself deals relatively low damage and she has a slow reload speed.

Super: Old Lobber

"Penny sets up her cannon! It can shoot at enemies at a long range, over cover and setting the ground on fire."

Penny's Super deploys a cannon with a high damage output but low health. This turret can be thrown anywhere over obstacles within a short distance from Penny. The turret is stationary and fires cannonballs that deal high area damage to enemies, and leave an area on fire during 3 seconds and dealing 22% of the cannonball's damage per second. The cannon's range is extremely large; however, it has a rather slow firing speed and the cannonballs have a slow travel speed, which make them easy to dodge. Unlike many lobbed attacks, the travel time of the cannonballs doesn't decrease the closer the target is to the cannon.

Gadgets

Salty Barrel

"Penny drops a barrel of salt that blocks enemy projectiles. She can also use it to burst her own gold pouches."
GD-Penny1

Penny places a barrel with 2240 health that blocks non-piercing attacks. The barrel also blocks Penny's attacks, causing her attack to spray out behind it, but will also deal 100 damage to the barrel this way. If Penny places another barrel while one exists, the first one will disappear.

Trusty Spyglass

"Penny's cannon blasts at every visible enemy position within range."
GD-Penny2

Upon activation, Penny's cannon rapidly blasts a cannonball at every visible target in its range. It can shoot a maximum of 17 targets, but neither the cannonballs nor the fire they leave can charge her Super. Penny cannot use this Gadget if her cannon is not active.

Star Powers

Heavy Coffers

"Penny's gold pouches burst with a 100% wider cone after each hit."
SP-Penny1

This Star Power adds 2 more clumps of golden coins to the burst of every attack, increasing its width and total damage.

Master Blaster

"Penny's cannon deals 1372 damage and knocks back nearby enemies on landing."
SP-Penny2

Whenever Penny drops her cannon, any enemy near the landing spot gets knocked back and takes 1372 damage.

Mutation

This section describes content that has been replaced or removed from the game. This information is kept here for historical purposes.
"Penny deploys an additional cannon with old Lobber."
Mutation

Penny deployed two turrets with her Super. The extra one would always spawn three tiles above the first turret, although it could be offset if it would've been deployed inside a wall. Both her Trusty Spyglass Gadget and Master Blaster Star Power would affect both turrets.

Tips

Game Modes and Maps

  • The leftover fire from her cannonballs is very effective at restricting where an enemy is willing to go, often cutting off their escape route. This is valuable in game modes focused on control, such as Gem Grab and Hot Zone. The additional damage it deals is also effective against stationary targets such as safes.
  • Penny's pouch will not burst upon impact with walls or other obstacles. Her attack will, however, burst upon impact with a Power Cube box in Showdown. Use this to your advantage in keeping enemies away from the box with the coins from when your pouch splits. This strategy works particularly well in Rockwall Brawl in 8 out of the 10 spawn points. This also helps Penny open multiple grouped up boxes at ease, while she struggles to destroy single boxes due to her slow reload speed and pouch's low damage.

Recommended Build

  • Salty Barrel is incredible against tanks and assassins because it can deal high damage if you are close to enemies. This also works if you put it near the safe, as it can destroy it very fast.
  • If a Brawler with a moving ability like Edgar or Buzz jumps on you, Penny's Master Blaster Star Power can be used to distance yourself from the said Brawler with moving ability.

Strategies

  • To maximize the lifespan of the cannon, one of the very optimal placements for it is behind walls on the player's side of the map. The turret's extremely long range allows it to shoot cannonballs to the enemy's side of the map from the safety of the player's side and it is protected from enemy fire when behind walls. Additionally, close-ranged Brawlers' movement will be restricted by the walls when trying to take the turret down, causing them to be hit by its cannonballs.
  • It is better to put Penny's Cannon behind walls since it can attack through walls and make enemies have difficulty destroying it. The cannonballs from her Super take the same amount of time to land regardless of how far the opponent is. Use this to your advantage by placing the cannon as far back on the map as possible.

Other

  • When an opponent is positioned behind another opponent, the splash effect of Penny's main attack is able to hit both of them. This makes her very effective against any Brawler that has a meat shield, like Mr. P's Porters or Nita's Bruce.
  • Penny's cannon forces players to keep moving around the map. Use this to your advantage to predict your opponents' movement and shoot your attacks ahead of them in the direction they are moving. They will not be able to dodge the attack if it's aimed correctly, as by changing direction they'll be hit by the turret's cannonballs.
  • Like Jessie, Penny's Super can act as a meat shield in a pinch, absorbing enemy fire for a while and allowing herself or an ally to escape from a dangerous situation. It is even more effective combined with Master Blaster, which deals 1000 damage and knocks the enemy back. However, it's less effective against opposing Pennys who can maximize their damage by hitting you and your cannon.
