Brawl Stars Crow Guide – How To Use Crow Advanced Brawler Guide
Hi Guys Gooose26 here, and I’ve noticed that there haven’t been many brawler guides here. Not to say you guys are all bad at the game, but it was a bit peculiar to me, especially since I have been writing for a blog called the Weekly Brawler for a while now, and have made a good amount of guides there. Thus, I decided I would bring over my favorite guide on my favorite brawler, which is Crow. If you would like to read my original copy, you can find it here:Take a look at this Weekly Brawler Guide But enough with all of this worthless explaining, let’s get into the Brawl Stars Crow Guide itself.
Brawl Stars Crow Guide Strategies & Overview
Crow is a very versatile brawler and is pretty useful in almost every game mode. However, he isn’t overpowered in any game mode specifically. Due to his low health and slow damage, he can easily be overwhelmed if you don’t know how to use him. However, with some skill and understanding of the battlefield, he can be very strong, even despite his recent nerf in the latest balance changes.
How To Use Crow in Showdown
- Crow is hard to use in Showdown without a complete understanding of how to 1v1 with him with all brawlers and complete understanding of Showdown. You need to stay away from any and all bushes, and check the bushes from a distance.
- You won’t be taking too many power points in the game, but that’s okay, you just have to work on dodging. As long as you aren’t facing Dynamike or Barley, then walls are your best friends. Practice on circling around walls while you are being chased, and keeping them poisoned by hitting them right before they get to the other side of the wall.
- This way you can easily run away from enemy brawlers and keep poison on them, which is why you don’t need too many power points. Just focus on not getting hit, but keeping all opponents poisoned, and you’ll be set for victory.
- Keep in mind that a lot of the common brawlers in Showdown have a shorter range than you, and use that to your advantage. Just stay right outside of their range and consistently hit them with just 1 dagger, and you’ll be good for gold.
How To Use Crow in Heist
Offense: Crow isn’t too good at attacking in Heist due to the chokepoints. With common brawlers in this gamemode being Dynamike, Barley and Colt, you will have a lot of problems advancing to the safe.
You have a very slow killing speed, and your enemies will be able to run away to safety while you are stuck on the other side of the chokepoint unable to safely cross, and you cannot deal high amounts of damage against the safe either.
The only thing going for Crow is his super. If you are able to get your super up and going, you can jump right past the chokepoints and right on-top of your opponents, and with your damage and speed you will be able to confirm your kills and bring the enemy defense to chaos.
Thus, Crow’s super makes him decent at Heist, but due to the fact that the super is hard to get in the first place, I wouldn’t choose Crow for Heist.
Defense: Crow is a bit better at defending compared to offense. Because of his constant threat of poison, a lot of players will fear going through chokepoints to get to the safe. Thus, you can easily control these chokepoints.
Focus on chipping away anybody who is up close to the chokepoints by keeping them poisoned, while ensuring that everybody else is too scared to enter.
If your teammates do not help deal damage/defend, then you will probably be overrun and the safe will be taken down before the full extent of your damage will kick in, which is why I do not recommend using Crow for Heist.
How To Use Crow in Bounty
- Crow is decently good at Bounty overall. As I stated before, it really depends on your skill when using him. I’ll give pointers on how to best use him in combat universally in the “How To Use” section, but right now we are just talking about Bounty.
- You don’t have to push forward or try to hold anything, and that’s where Crow shines: Anywhere he is free to move as needed. This means if your opponents push, you can retreat while still keeping poison on them, and vice versa. As long as they don’t have any long-ranged brawlers like Piper, Ricochet or Colt, you don’t need to take cover to keep opponents poisoned.
- Do not try and kill players with over half their health left, just make sure they consistently take damage. Your teammates will do all the killing, because you are a support. Don’t be a hero, but don’t get too conservative as well. You may be in a situation where you need to get in and take out an opponent who has a lot of stars.
- The best way to do this, if your target is not a close range brawler, is to use your super right on top of them, hit them with all 3 of your daggers over and over, and when they go down, try to stall as much as possible while poisoning opponents when they are cornering you.
- If you stall long enough, your poisoning will fill your super, and you can escape with a clean kill or 2. However, only try this when it is completely necessary. If 2 guys are poisoned, or you pushed an opponent to retreat, you have done your job, and that’s all you really need to do, so don’t be a hero.
How To Use Crow in Smash and Grab
- Crow shines pretty well in Smash and Grab. Because of his ability to poison, most brawlers will fear getting hit at all, and when they get hit they will do one of 2 things. Retreat and heal up, or try and attack you, when they can’t catch you. Both of these scenarios will end up in a positive outcome.
- The true way to beat Crow is to either bring a long-range brawler or to stay as a team, but I feel from my experience of playing Crow that normally this coordination doesn’t really get setup too often, as it takes communication, and if you are very good at dodging, you don’t get destroyed by sniping. So always provoke these 1v1 fights by keeping poison on your opponents.
- If you can keep poison on everybody, they can’t attack the center mine, the poison is too much damage and their inability to heal is just icing on the cake. Although you are holding the center, don’t actually enter the center without teammates, as it is too easily flanked. Remember, you have very little health, do not push to far.
- You will also be the one making sure you are not flanked by softening up any flankers before they face the full force of your team. Don’t get kills, but rather provoke retreats or chases, buying time for your team to collect the gems.
