Gus is a Super Rare brawler that landed in Brawl Stars with the arrival of season 14: Robot Factory. He joins the game just after his tanky melee buddy, Sam, joined earlier in the season. Gus is the complete opposite of Sam however and fits the description of a Support brawler. He has moderate health and damage output, but his strength lies in his ability to heal and act as a decent battle initiator.

Gus introduces a new playstyle to Brawl Stars as he is equipped with a unique 'spirit' bar that allows him to spawn healing spirits on the map. But alongside this, he has his own set of interesting Gadgets, Star Powers, and Super. Let's go over all of that, how you can Gus, and his in-game stats.

Gus's basic attack will shoot balloons at enemies.

After three successive enemy hits, Gus's unique 'spirit' bar will be fully charged. The next attack you hit after this will spawn a spirit on the map. These spirits will restore some health for you or your team if they are collected. Multiple spirits can be on the map at the same time.

Gus Super - Spooky Boy

Gus's Spooky Boy Super will create a shield around himself or one of his teammates. This shield will block a certain amount of damage. It will decay 10% of its health every 0.5 seconds from the point it is activated.

This is how you can cast Gus's Super:

  • To cast the shield on allies: You will need to aim your shot (like a regular attack) at your ally. The shot will need to land on the ally and not miss.
  • To cast shield on Gus: Tap the Super button as if you were auto-aiming an attack.

If an attack deals more damage than the shield's current health, the shield will disappear and the brawler with the shield will be affected by the remaining damage.
