Carl Tips & Tricks

  • Try to position yourself between your opponent and a close wall. You can throw the pickaxe and it will bounce off the wall and come back to you. If you can pin the opponent near a wall, you can get multiple attacks on them and deal a ton of damage.
  • Your pickaxe will deal damage when you throw it at a target and it his them, but it also does damage on the way back to you. Try to hit them with that initial throw, and then position yourself in a way that they get hit by it again on the way back.
  • Your pickaxe will penetrate through enemies, so if they lineup or they are close together you can potentially hit multiple targets in one throw.
  • Before you use your super attack, you should throw your pickaxe to do some initial damage and then use it. This will soften up your target and then give you a quick finish with the super.

  1. Can you tell me more on how to counter Carl?

    1. You can counter him by staying back further from him and waiting for the pickaxe throw. You can then go in on him to attack, but try to avoid the pickaxe when it comes back. You also want to avoid being near walls, because he can bounce it off them for multiple hits. If you know he has his ultimate, you’ll want to not get too close. The main counter is just waiting for Carl to throw his pickaxe too far, because then he has no real way to attack unless he has his ultimate.
