Sam is a melee brawler who is equipped with his trademark Knuckle Buster weapons. Sam will use them to deliver a two-punch attack. These Knuckle Busters provide Sam with different attacking options depending on whether he has them equipped or not.

These are the two attacks that Sam is capable of delivering:

  • If unequipped with Knuckle Busters: Sam's attacks are faster but deal less damage.
  • If equipped with Knuckle Busters: Sam will deal a stronger, close-range attack that can hit multiple enemies at the same time. His Super bar is always full when his Knuckle Busters are equipped, so he will be the first-ever Brawler who starts matches with his Super already available.

Here's a look at his damage stats per level:

Activating his Super again will recall the Knuckle Busters from where they landed back to Sam's arms - damaging everything on its path again.
