Shooting Star is an official map for the Bounty event.

Layout

The map is a notably open, and contains only a small amount of walls protecting Brawlers from enemy fire. Near the center star are two 3x3 lakes flanked by some walls and two bushes that act as permanent obstacles for the map. The map is diagonally symmetrical.

Tips

  • Sharpshooters such as Piper are extremely good on this map. By destroying a few 4x1 walls and clusters with her Super, she can force enemies out of hiding if they choose to move forward. Her high damage output and extremely long range gives her an enormous advantage over close-ranged Brawlers
    • Brock with his Incendiary Star Power can pressure enemies from dodging shots by forcing them to take damage if they choose to fall back.
  • With the walls still intact, throwers such as Tick and Sprout can reliably push back enemy Brawlers and limit enemy movements by hiding behind the 4x1 walls and blocking off chokepoints. However, this map is not ideal for throwers due to the lack of alternative cover and their relatively low health. It is preferred to use either Gadget (Mine Mania if you are offensive; Last Hurrah if you are better up relatively close) and his Well Oiled Star Power for Tick and its Garden Mulcher Gadget and its Photosynthesis Star Power for Sprout.
  • Medium-ranged Brawlers should be able to supply large amounts of support if they would like to succeed with the long-ranged meta of this map. Bo's Super allows him to put enemy movement to a halt, or otherwise deal considerably amounts of damage. The sparse amount of bushes on the map make his Circling Eagle Star Power a less than ideal choice.
  • Penny's Balls of Fire Star Power can act as a decent replacement to throwers. Balls of Fire allows for great area control and high damage, making it ideal for controlling and taking down the enemy team. Penny's above average range also allows her to function as a decent sharpshooter, although she cannot act as a sniper replacement because of her general low damage output.
  • Close-ranged Brawlers such as Bull or Shelly are not viable in this map because they will easily be picked off and overwhelmed by longer ranged enemies, without ever posing a significant threat to the enemy team. If playing a close-ranged Brawler, always try and push the enemies back.
  • Nani's large range and high damage allows her to snipe enemies before they can attack her. Staying near your spawn and behind walls when using your super also allows you to deal high damage (especially with her Autofocus Star Power) to instantly take enemies out.
