  • JESSIE

Difficult Matchups

  • EL PRIMO
  • SHELLY

Hard Counters

  • MORTIS

Strengths

  • Barley has extremely long range and wide area of effect regular attack, allowing him to zone opponents.
  • Barley destroys opponents when they group up together in a small area.
  • He can stay safe behind walls/obstacles and deal damage from afar.
  • Barley's super does damage over time and has a large area of effect that burns enemies over time. It is a great super that will annihilate enemies that are trapped in the area.

Weaknesses

  • Barley's attacks have a slight delay, so sometimes it will be hard to hit good players that know how to juke.
  • His super has a casting time, so if he dies during the casting, the rest of the bottles thrown will not occur.
  • Once strong melee enemies like Shelly, Bull, El Primo or Mortis gets in range, he is vulnerable to dying fast.

Tips & Tactics

  • Hiding behind walls and bushes is Barley's strongest play. You will want to stay way out of range of most Brawlers and slowly poke them to death.
  • Try to predict the path of your opponents by throwing bottles in places you think they will run into.
  • Save your super when enemies clutter up together. It is devastating and you can kill all 3 opponents in Smash & Grab, Heist or Bounty.
  • If someone is chasing you, you want to run around a wall and throw the bottles behind your path to damage them.
