What’s up guys, Itchy Monkey here! I’m here to drop in for Wonderwall to do a Brawl Stars Mortis in depth guide and tips. Mortis is a Mythic unit in the game together with Tara.
|Primary Attack||Shovel Swing – Mortis dashes forward while swinging his shovel.|
|Super:||Life Blood – Mortis calls bats that will drain health of enemies and will restore his.|
Currently, there are three available Epic Brawlers in the game. All three of them have their own strengths and weaknesses. Mortis’ strength is his ability to dash. This makes him the perfect Brawler in Smash & Grab. He can just swipe those Gems and move away. His weakness, however, is his short range and his slow reload speed. His dash range used to longer than his current range but the dev team nerfed him and imposed a 25% decrease.

Brawl Stars Mortis Analysis – Guide & Tips
I actually expected a Mortis nerf right after facing him in a Smash & Grab event. He is way too fast and evades pretty quickly. He seemed untouchable as he can just use his Shovel Swing to move away. With his nerf on the June 22 Balance Changes, he is now manageable. He can still bag a lot of gems in Smash & Grab but opposing Brawlers can now catch him and steal his loot.
When to use Life Blood
Mortis and Events
Mortis in Smash & Grab
Smash & Grab is the best event for Mortis. He can use his dash speed to get those gems! Make sure to not charge into the mid area if there are a lot of foes trying to make their camp. He can only snatch those gems once they get distracted. This is where you need the help of your teammates. Once you get a ton, don’t overreach! You don’t want him to drop those precious gems and lose the match.
Mortis in Bounty
The way you use Mortis in Bounty is different. You have to wait for an ambush. The perfect opportunity is when a Brawler is alone. Do his quick dashes and hit him/her with Mortis’ shovel! Once finished, dash away and wait for another. If you see injured Brawlers, you can go ahead and end their misery by doing his dash. Remember, his hits are 160 per DMG, any Brawlers within his reach will get to taste his shovel.
Mortis in Showdown
I have tried Mortis in Showdown and trust me, it is really fun! If you can grab a couple of power-ups, go ahead. If not, you’re still good. I usually roam around the map and doing his dashes while at it. This reveals those Brawlers who are hiding and make them a target to those chunky Brawlers with power-ups. Yes, I shake the beehive! If a Brawler is after you, do his dashes and evade. By doing this, I cut down the number of survivors. During the last 3 Brawlers, I wait for them to battle it out and once their HP is around 200, make his signature dash and win the game.
Mortis in Heist
To be honest, I never ever tried Mortis in Heist. Even against Bots, I haven’t tried it. Since his range is too low, I don’t think he’s a good unit to use in this event. His super is not useful too (if you have a video that disagrees, please share it with us!) Unless you’re always on defense, you can’t count on Mortis to help you rob the safe.
Overall Score for Mortis
Mortis is fun to use. His dashing might need a couple of practice for you to use it properly. He is the man to use during Smash & Grab matches and his Life Blood is a life saver especially if you use it against 2 or more Brawlers. Don’t try to use him during Heist events, unless you want to troll your teammates. He is quite cool to use in Showdown and evade those power hungry brawlers.
- The September 12, 2017 Balance Changes nerfed Mortis again. His movement speed is now down to 650 and his Super range is now 10 tiles from 13.34 tiles.
