Brigitte - Guides, Tips & Tricks

Support Character

Difficulty Level :star:

Brigitte specializes in armor. She can throw Repair Packs to heal teammates, or automatically heal nearby allies when she damages foes with her Flail. Her Flail is capable of a wide swing to strike multiple targets, or a Whip Shot that stuns an enemy at range. When entering the fray, Barrier Shield provides personal defense while she attacks enemies with Shield Bash. Brigitte’s ultimate ability, Rally, gives her a substantial short-term boost of speed and provides long-lasting armor to all her nearby allies.

Brigette is best used with a Reinhardt, but can be effectively used with any comp that includes atleast one main tank. Her damage output, and potential to get rid of, or keep enemy flanker from doing their job is quite frightening. Against a tracer, if you Shield bash her, primary fire, and then rocket flail, you will be able to kill her before the stun wears off so long as she has no extra health from armor. Against any other 200hp hero, you can perform the same combo so long as you hit the enemy with your primary fire twice before using shield bash.

Remember, although you are a very tanky support you should never stray away from your team to fight an enemy, Despite being a strong hero who can 1v1 almost any other hero besides Reinhardt and sometimes reaper or Mcree, you will still be at a massive disadvantage if you are in any type of outnumbered duel, if you know someone is somewhere that you can take them out, it’s always best to alert your team and pounce on them as one.

When using your ult, it is usually most beneficial if used after a fight has ended or right before the next one. Using her ult as a response to taking damage is inefficient and you are still likely going to die, because the armor she generates during her ult does not give you any extra survivability until a few seconds in.
