SPIKE BEST BUILD

Spike possesses moderate health, average movement speed, and excels in dealing high damage at close range. His primary attack has a medium to long-range reach, enhanced by the protruding spikes that extend its distance. Utilizing his Super, Spike hurls a spiky bomb capable of slowing down enemies and inflicting minor damage upon impact. With his initial gadget, Spike disperses needles around himself, providing defensive coverage. Conversely, his second gadget allows Spike to deploy a healing cactus that offers restorative effects to allies within its designated area upon destruction. One of Spike's Star Powers enables health regeneration when he remains within the radius of his Super, while the second Star Power causes the spikes from his attacks to curve during flight.

 Spike’s optimal build consists of the Curveball Star Power paired with the Life Plant Gadget. This combination transforms Spike into a formidable Brawler capable of chasing down and defeating enemies attempting to escape combat. His Gadget also improves his durability by allowing him to absorb some enemy attacks. Sticky Spikes is a crucial gear choice because it leaves little room for your enemies to escape once they’re caught in your Super. By using the damage gear, Spike becomes an exceptionally dangerous Brawler, dealing massive damage to opponents.

SECOND BUILD You have the option to opt for Fertilize to enhance Spike's durability and aggression instead of his alternate Star Power. The alternative gadget, Popping Pincushion, may not be as potent as the former, but proves to be invaluable against tanky opponents. It can inflict significant damage when engaging in close combat with enemies, making it particularly effective in modes like Heist where you aim to deal substantial damage to the safe. The vision gear shines in maps abundant with bushes, as Spike can effectively target enemies with his Curveball Star Power. For increased survivability in passive game modes, you can equip the shield gear.

A precise guide for attack, super, hypercharge, gadgets, and star power:

ATTACK

Spike fires a cactus that can hurt enemies. When it hits something, like an enemy or a wall, or when it goes as far as it can, it bursts and shoots 6 spikes in all directions. The spikes spread out in a fixed way. With spike’s attack, you can easily shoot enemies that are hiding behind walls or that are escaping. The damage is incredibly high when you’re very close to the enemy because that’s when more spikes can hit them.

SUPER

Spike tosses a spiky grenade over obstacles, and when it lands, it makes a round area filled with spikes on the ground that stays for 4.5 seconds. Enemies inside this area get hurt over time and get slowed.

BLOOMING SEASONSpike Hypercharge

Spike’s Hypercharge makes his Super 20% wider. This is really strong because it allows Spike to trap more enemies in his Super. Spike also get +30% speed, +20% damage and +20% shield.

POPPING PINCUSHIONSpike Gadget 01

Spike fires three waves of needles, with each wave containing 10 needles. Each needle can harm enemies for 1120 damage. This gadget comes in handy when you require extra damage to eliminate an enemy. You should use this gadget in close combat, as it’s less likely to touch targets at longer distances.

LIFE PLANTSpike Gadget 02

This Gadget allows him to plant a large cactus that has 2400 health. The cactus provides cover for Spike and his teammates, and when it is destroyed, it releases a healing burst that heals all nearby friendly Brawlers for 1440 health. Life Plant can be used in defensive situations in order to protect yourself from your enemies.

FERILIZESpike Star Power 01

With this Star Power, Spike can recover 1200 health each second while standing within the area influenced by his Super, providing a total of 6000 health. It’s essential to note that this Star Power exclusively benefits the Spike who deployed it.

CURVEBALLSpike Star Power 02

Spike’s star power causes his primary attack to follow a curved trajectory. This adjustment makes it challenging for enemies to evade his attacks and simplifies hitting them around corners or over barriers. Curveball is an exceptionally strong star power that enhances Spike’s primary attack, making it quite effective for dispatching adversaries. The spikes launched from his main attack now travel in a clockwise curved path instead of a straight line. This enables Spike’s attack to reach more targets and in a wider area.
