Rating (-/10)8.4
Unite typeMelee/Tank
  • Pull from Brawl Box
  • Spend 10 Chips to buy


  • Massive damage with his shotgun.
  • Tanky character.
  • Super can be used as a gap closer or escape option in combat.


  • Short attack range.
  • Damage falls off the farther the distance.
  • Can be kited easily by other characters.

Upgrade priority

  • Attack goes first as Bull is naturally really bulky with health so having more damage in combat will always serve well.
  • Health goes next as a bulkier character will allow for more survivability in combat.
  • The Special is maxed last as his ability is most used for escaping which doesn’t prove much useful as it only deals [base] 200 damage.

Strategies & tips

General strategies

Bull is a tanky character just like El Primo so try to team up with a friendly Poco player for healing in combat! Try to get as close as possible to opponents. That means ambushing enemies in bushes is a viable tactic despite many believing it to be very cowardly!

Primary attack

Bull is a very tanky character with a base health of 1200 that peaks to 1500 when maxed out, be sure to use that tankiness to get into the enemies face to get as much damage as possible with your shotgun which can deal, at base damage, 500 damage!
The closer you are to the enemy, the more pellets will hit them dealing more damage. Same mechanic as Shelly.

Super ability

Use your Special attack to get away when hoarding all those Gems in Smash & Grab. As a micro mechanic, your special knocks back opponents momentarily which can cancel out other enemy characters Special such as Barley’s Special.


Smash & Grab

When playing Smash & Grab, as the tank, try to get the gems for your team mates as you are naturally more bulky than a large majority of characters. You can also body shield your teammates while they get the gems while you run in dealing damage to the enemy team attempting to seize control of the gem mine.


Showdown is by far Bull’s best event as it is full of a large amount of bushes that he can hide in and utilize for ambushing players. He can also clear boost box’s within three hits, (without any boosts or elixir upgrades), if all hits are landed with his shotgun at close range. His fighting ability is also very strong against a large portion of the characters that are largely used in Showdown such as El Primo or Shelly.

  • Best character to work with: N/A
  • Best character to counter: Shelly, Nita, Barley


When playing Bounty, try to always hide in the bushes in the surrounding part of the map or the middle to then get closer to the opponents. The purpose of this game mode is to get kills and survive so try to get quick deadly kills.



In Heist, there is generally a wall that is used to guard the vault, however, once bull has his super ability, Bulldozer, he can charge in and break through that wall allowing for his teammates to have easier access at getting to the vault and dealing damage.


Try to push other enemy characters away from the wall surrounding the vault and the set of walls in front of the vault to keep them from dealing damage to the vault.
