"Sprout was built to plant life, launching bouncy Seed Bombs with reckless love. Its Super creates a plant-based obstacle!"
Sprout Portrait.png

Sprout is a Mythic Brawler that attacks by throwing a ball of seeds over cover that travels forwards around the floor and bounces off walls. If the ball makes contact with enemies, or after a set period of time, it explodes to deal area damage. Its Super allows Sprout to throw a Super Seed, creating a large barrier when it lands. Its Gadget, Garden Mulcher, allows Sprout to consume a nearby bush and heal a significant amount of health. Its first Star Power, Overgrowth, increases the blast radius of its main attack every five seconds. Its second Star Power, Photosynthesis, grants it a shield while being in a bush and for a short time after leaving it.

Attack: Seed Bomb

"Sprout propels a ball of seeds that bounces around before bursting with a bang! If it makes contact with enemies, it explodes on impact."

Sprout lobs over a ball of seeds that explodes when it makes contact with an enemy. If it does not hit an enemy, it will travel a few tiles further and bounce off of walls before exploding. The seed travels farther when bouncing off of walls.

Super: Hedge

"Sprout uses its Super Seed to grow a thick vine hedge, creating an impassable though temporary obstacle."

Sprout throws its Super Seed to create a hedge barrier that can block both your enemies' and your allies' path. It creates a 5-block cross pattern from the center of the seed. However, if there are nearby walls to where the seed was planted, the hedge will grow towards them and connect with the walls, allowing Sprout to plant up to 17 tiles of hedge. As with any obstacle, this one can be destroyed by certain Supers. These hedges can also be destroyed by Brawlers with invulnerability bubbles.

The hedges will disappear after 10 seconds, and using another Super will not cancel the previous hedges. If a Brawler is in the way of the hedges when they grow, the Brawler will be moved out of the way. The hedges will also destroy any bushes that they grow over on the map.

Gadget: Garden Mulcher

"Sprout consumes a bush to restore 2000 health."

When Sprout is in close proximity to a bush tile, it can "eat" the bush to restore 2000 health, destroying the bush in the process.

Star Powers

Overgrowth

"Every 5.0 seconds, the next Seed Bomb will explode with a larger explosion radius."

Sprout gains a charge bar that takes 5 seconds to fully charge, and when it is charged the blast radius of Sprout's next main attack is increased by ~40%. After the main attack is used, Sprout's charge bar resets. Unlike other charging bars, Sprout's Overgrowth's bar starts charging immediately after its last use. It does not require three shots reloaded to start charging.

Photosynthesis

"Sprout activates a shield, partially protecting itself from all attacks while inside a bush."

While in a bush, Sprout gets a shield that reduces all damage taken by 30%. After exiting the bushes, it keeps the shield for another 3 seconds.

Tips

  • Sprout's Seed Bombs move slowly in the air and also cannot be fired at Sprout's feet. As a result, it is very difficult for Sprout to attack enemies that are close to it unless nearby walls are used to assist them.
  • Sprout can prevent enemies from escaping the poison gas in Showdown with its Super, making enemies take more damage and potentially knocking them out.
  • Sprout's Super can also be utilized to block off vital choke points, effectively leaving only one or two passages for enemy Brawlers to walk through. This could cause them to clump together, allowing for an effective team wipe.
  • Sprout's Super can block the Siege robot from reaching the IKE, effectively nullifying the threat for as long as the barrier lasts. During this time, it also blocks any non-thrower projectiles and melee attacks from enemy Brawlers attempting to attack the IKE.
  • Sprout’s main attack radius can damage multiple enemies, especially if it has their Overgrowth Star Power equipped. Hitting multiple opponents charges its Super faster, so always take advantage of the situation if enemy Brawlers clump together.
