Tips and Strategies for Arya in MultiVersus

Arya is somewhat small and extremely nimble, making her excellent at weaving in and out of combat. You will want to focus on getting backstab attacks to maximize the effects of her passive ability. Her Knife-Thrower ability is one of her best, as it allows you to attack foes out of nowhere and pull yourself from near knockouts.

Keep moving with Arya and look for openings to punish an enemy's whiffed attack. You'll want to focus on scoring horizontal knockouts, but you can easily secure knockouts off the top of the blast zone. Try to avoid staying in melees or trading blows because Arya can die fairly easily.
