"He's a Protector with a penchant for parties. Surge attacks foes with energy drink blasts that split in 2 on contact. His Super upgrades his stats in 3 stages and comes complete with totally awesome Body mods!"
Surge Portrait.png

Surge is a Chromatic Brawler who can be unlocked as a Brawl Pass reward at tier 30 from Season 2: Summer of Monsters or from Brawl Boxes. He has low health and moderate damage output but has a great amount of damage potential. His main attack fires a shot of juice that splits upon hitting an enemy. His Super grants him various upgrades and boosts to his attacks and movement speed. His Gadget, Power Surge, teleports Surge a small distance in the direction he is facing and allows him to pass through obstacles. His first Star Power, To the Max!, allows his projectiles to split when hitting a wall. Surge's second Star Power, Serve Ice Cold, makes Surge respawn with his stage 1 upgrade instead of reverting back to his initial state.

Attack: Juice of Justice

"Surge serves a shot of Juice that splits in two on contact with enemies."

Surge fires a shot that splits in two at 90-degree angles when it hits an enemy. Each of the split shots will deal half the damage and Super charge of the initial shot. When upgraded to stage 2 with his Super, Surge's attack range increases. Likewise, his attack splits into 6 projectiles instead of 2 with the additional stage 3 upgrade, with 3 projectiles firing in a wide arc on each side. These split shots continue on their trail for an additional 3.67 tiles.

Super: Party Tricks

"With each Super, Surge gets upgraded (MAX 3). Upgrades are lost when Surge is defeated."

Surge flies up into the air, knocking enemies back and dealing damage in a small radius upon landing. In addition, Surge becomes upgraded, along with an altered appearance. Surge's upgrades reset if he is defeated or if a goal is scored in Brawl Ball. Additionally, a military-like rank icon will appear beside his health bar that represents his current upgrade stage. This icon can be seen by Surge's teammates and enemies.

Gadget: Power Surge

"Surge overloads his circuits and teleports a short distance forward."

Surge instantly teleports up to 4 tiles in the direction he is facing. He can teleport even if there is an obstacle in the way. If more than 4 tiles is required to bypass an obstacle, Surge will not teleport and instead stays where he is, but still consumes a Gadget charge. Surge cannot be damaged while teleporting.

Star Powers

To the Max!

"Surge's main attack now splits when hitting walls."

Surge's main attack now also splits if it hits a wall.

Serve Ice Cold

"Surge keeps his STAGE 1 Super upgrade for the full match duration."

After using one Super and then being defeated, Surge respawns with his stage 1 upgrade instead of reverting back to his initial state.

Tips

  • His Gadget can be used for a quick escape by teleporting behind a wall and staying behind it for cover. His Gadget can also be used to "phase" through an attack, therefore protecting himself.
  • Surge's Gadget is also extremely effective for offensive maneuvers. When facing Brawlers on low health or a Brawler with a throwing attack such as Dynamike behind a wall or obstacle, he can use his Gadget to teleport through it and finish them off. The speed of his teleportation often surprises enemies, giving Surge an extra advantage over his adversary.
  • When Surge's Super is activated, he can momentarily dodge any projectiles approaching him. Use his Super at just the right moment to avoid a potentially devastating attack. For example, Surge can elude Frank's destructive Super by just activating his Super right after Frank swings his hammer. Alternatively, his Super can be used when fighting close range against an enemy, as landing his Super on an enemy within a small radius does damage and also produces a knock back effect. If a close range heavyweight is chasing Surge, the Super can be used to physically distance Surge from his enemy and to deter the enemy brawler from further confrontation by dishing out some extra damage.
  • Charging his Super and surviving are the two most important things to note when playing Surge. An effective combination would be Bo and Surge in Duo Showdown.
  • At stage 0, Surge is an easy target for throwers. Staying out of range or simply avoiding throwers increases Surge's chance of survival until he reaches stage 1. After upgrading himself for the first time, Surge can counter their attacks with his very fast movement speed which quickly turns him into a threat.
  • In 3v3 events, such as Brawl Ball, conserving a charged Super until after respawn can provide a vital speed boost immediately after Surge is able to rejoin in the action.
  • A great way to use his Gadget effectively in Showdown is to jump onto enemy Brawlers that Surge can reliably burst down. Use the Gadget to get in range of a Brawler that Surge can defeat with three shots. All three main shots are enough to charge Surge's next Super.
  • It is advised to use his To the Max! Star Power in Solo Showdown because his Serve Ice Cold Star Power is only activated once Surge is defeated, and is therefore useless. To the Max! gives better value overall if Surge can land his shots consistently.
