Precision

Beast doing Bleed damage on Critical hits, together with his signature ability and Precision, makes him one of the strongest Bleed dealers in the game.

Petrify & Pacify

Match-Ups

Strong

This is a list of Champions that Beast performs well against.

  • Crossbones, Black Panther – Because of their Physical Resistance and Armor Ups, those champions are really hard to defeat, but with Beast’s Signature Ability and the Freestyle mode, he can bypass those defenses with his Bleed effects on Critical hits.
  • Power Nodes in Quests, PvP – Beast is able to drastically reduce opponent’s Power gain while fighting with his Acrobatic combat form, making him one of the best options when going against champions on those nodes.

Poor

This is a list of Champions that Beast performs poorly against.

  • Doctor Strange, Magneto – Beast does not handle Energy Damage very well, therefore any champions that constantly deals Energy based attacks have an advantage against him.
