Brawl Stars Tick Guide 2019

Brawl Stars Tick Guide 2019 | How to Play Tick Btawl Stars Tips 2019 Hi guys Brawl Stars Tick Guide 2019 | How to Play Tick Btawl Stars Tips 2019 Since Tick was just recently added to the game, I know a lot of people haven’t discovered higher skill level strategies for him yet. After searching around I also realized no one has really made a guide yet. Because of that, I thought it would be worthwhile to make an advanced guide and post it here. Now this is my first strategy guide post so it probably isn’t perfect but I hope it will still be helpful to some of you.

I’ll divide the guide into three parts: General Tick tips,  Game mode specific Strategies, and advice for how to beat other ticks in mirror matchups. Let’s get started

General Tick tips:

Ticks strength is the incredibly long throw range of his mines which are capable of both chipping brawlers down and zoning them. His super is also very strong as it gives him high burst damage to finish brawlers off.

During the early game you should play more defensively by utilizing his long range to get chip damage on enemies and build up your super. Once it’s charged, you can play more aggressively and use your mines to corner people and then send your head in to finish them off.

The head is a very useful super both offensively and defensively. For killing enemies with it, try to wait until their health is low enough so that it can actually get a kill and not just knock them back.

Also, because it can be shot down, count your enemies shots so that you only use it when they’re low on ammo. You can also combine it with mines by blocking the enemy’s escape route. Defensively, the head can be used as a mini shield.

If you are low health and  have a lethal shot incoming you can quickly throw the head in front of you to block it and save your life while maybe still getting some offensive value if it survived. It’s also very satisfying to catch an enemy gene’s super with yours.

The knockback from the head is also very useful for spacing out melee brawlers who are approaching you or interrupting supers like Frank’s or Brock’s.

Because of Tick’s low health, he is incredibly vulnerable. Ranged brawlers with high burst damage such as Piper and Brock are particularly dangerous as they can one or two shot you in open spaces.

Quick, close range brawlers such as Mortis or Leon are also dangerous as they can out maneuver the zoning of your mines and get in close for the kill.

 Tick Game Modes tips

Showdown: The fastest way to break chests with Tick is actually to auto-aim onto them as this will target the dead center and all three mines will hit. Of course you will need to focus on keeping brawlers away from you so spacing with the mines as well as bush clearing is key. Higher power cube levels will make your head incredibly strong so if you get enough cubes you can simply throw your head out and wait for kills. For duos, brawlers who will keep opponents at range like Crow or Poco will work well with Tick. Or use powerful brawlers who can rush in and grab power cubes like Bull or Daryl after Tick gets a ranged kill.

Gem Grab: Pretty simple but play similarly to how you would play Barley. Do this by using your mines to zone people away from the mine and just try to get good value from your head.

Brawl Ball: On offense use your mines to create a path between your ball carrier and the enemy’s goal. This will support your carrier by hindering enemy’s ability to approach and defend him. On defense do the same thing between the enemy carrier and your own goal. It is also important to save up your super so that you can use your head’s knockback to strip the ball from enemy carriers and protect your goal line.

Heist: On offense throw your mines on the enemy’s vault for solid damage while also zoning enemies away from yourself. On defense  keep brawlers away using your mines and aggressive super kills.

Bounty: Play extremely defensively in the beginning while you utilize your range to build up your super. Once that happens, push forwards and attempt to corner a brawler with your mines and then  finish them off with your head. Since it’s more important to not die than it is to get kills, you should never push too far forward as to expose yourself. Also don’t be afraid to use your head in a defensive way as I described in the general tips section as this can give you a lot of value in this game mode in particular.

Siege: Tick’s strength here lies in his ability to zone enemy brawlers away from the bolts. Use your mines to support your allies and push the enemies back while getting kills with your head as often as possible. When defending against a siege bot, it may be more valuable to use your mines to keep the enemy brawlers away from your Ike rather than trying to damage the bot itself. This will greatly reduce the dps on your turret if the enemy team has any strong offensive brawlers such as Brock, Dynamike, or Rico.

How to beat other ticks in mirror matchups

Just as it is when any new brawler is released, for a short while you will see a disproportionate amount of them in any game mode you play. Because of this, you’ll often find yourself in mirror matchups.

As with all mirror matchups the name of the game is maximizing your own value while minimizing your opponent’s. For Tick, this means landing your mines at max range on your opponent while dodging theirs.

This is the key to winning matchups against other Ticks because, generally, the first one to get their super will win the fight. 

This is because Tick is extremely vulnerable to the super of other Ticks. The head’s speed and health allow it to quickly rush through the mines and most likely kill the other Tick.

So it is vital that you dodge your opponent’s mines while hitting your own shots in order to get your super first and win.

Well that’s it for the strategy guide. I have a lot of fun using Tick and hope some of my strategies will be useful to you guys.
