As one of the original Brawlers in Brawl Stars, learn how to use Jessie’s attack power and super ability here.

What’s up guys, Itchy Monkey here! I’m here to sub for Wonderwall to do a Brawl Stars Jessie in depth guide and tips. Jessie is a Common brawler same as Shelly, El Primo, Colt, Brock, Nita, and Dynamike.

Jessie
brawl stars jessie
Rarity Common
Type Ranged
HP 700
Attack 160
Speed 650
Primary Attack Shock Rifle – Jessie fires an orb that seeks up to 3 targets
Super: Scrappy – Jesse builds a gun turret and fires at the enemy.

This very talented girl can make a turret out of scraps. The same turret can deal 60 damage per bullet and has its own HP at 700. Kind of like Nita’s Big Baby Bear but stationary. It detects nearby brawlers. You can use it in bushy maps to know where the opposing brawlers are.

Brawl Stars Jessie Analysis – Guide & Tips

Jessie’s Shock Rifle attack releases an Orb that finds its way towards three targets. It can either be another turret, bear, a power-up crate, or the best target – another brawler. As it finds its way to its three victims, if it landed on another brawler, it will fill Jessie’s super gauge. Because of this, it caught the eye the Brawl Stars dev team and nerfed her attack down to 140 from 160 DMG. But don’t worry, the team gave her a buff on the very first balance change and removed her turret’s decay over time.

One of the best things about Brawl Stars Jessie is her Shock Rifle. Her hi-tech gun can shoot an Orb, hitting three enemies at a time if you shoot it amongst the chaos. Yes, she can attack enemies with just one shot and it charges her super per Orb hit. As long as you shoot one Brawler, it will connect to another and another until it fizzes out.
To be honest, Jessie’s turret is very annoying to deal with. It can do a steady stream of shots with 60 DMG and has its own HP of 700. And these stats are not yet upgraded. If you’re thinking of leveling Jessie with Elixirs, make her Super a priority. Next is her attack and then her health. Her max level turret has 875 HP and can deal 75 DMG. It’s just 5 DMG short of Ricochet’s bouncing bullets!

When to use Scrappy

Use Scrappy as soon as you can. What really matters is where you put her friend on the map. The best place to plant her Scrappy is in the mid area. It can help your team with fire power to go for a push. It also provides distraction and will exhaust other brawlers as they need to use their ammo to take it down. For a 60 DMG per hit, it can help in chip damage. Some novice brawlers just leave the turret alone and go for a push, they forget that this turret can deal a good amount of damage over time.

Jessie’s Range

Among these Common Brawlers, Jessie lands in third when it comes to range. For commons, Brock is the first, Colt is second, and last is Shelly. In the whole game, Ricochet has the longest range and then Brock, Piper, Colt etc. With her range, you have to have good timing as to where her opponent will move next. Her Orb travels kind of slow too. Movement prediction is recommended for you to hit your target. Remember, even with just one hit, the Orb will travel and may connect to other brawlers.

Jessie and Events

Jessie in Bounty

Jessie and her friend, Scrappy, works well in Bounty. With only 700 HP and a good range, she better keep away from the mid area of the map. Try to hit at least one Brawler to make her Orb travel around and hit the others. The best placement for her turret is to hide it from plain sight. You can also use it as an alarm for an incoming offense.

Jessie in Smash & Grab

Same in Smash & Grab event, the technique in using Jessie is to have her turret as soon as you can. Place it under the bushes near the mine to keep opposing brawlers away. If your team is already winning with a lot of Gems, plant it defensively near the entrance to your base. If it’s the other way around, put it on their side of the map. It will give you additional chip damage to steal their gems.

Jessie in Heist

I’m not seeing a lot of Jessie’s in Heist. This is probably because of her ATK and super are not appropriate in this event. Although, her Scrappy can be quite useful if you managed to put in near the safe for a continuous damage. If you still want to test out Jessie, fill her super gauge quick by attacking the defenders and put Scrappy near the safe. It will target it and deal chip damage. Jessie on defense is quite okay. Imagine having turrets defending your safe. This will make your base look like a fort.

Jessie in Showdown

Using Jessie in Showdown is a challenge. I tried her a few times and easily get killed whenever I try to get those power-up crates. I find her ATK rather slow and her HP a bit squishy. It is tough getting those crates as she can only deal 140 DMG per shot to open it. And yes, an El Primo, Shelly, and Bull are always lurking around. If you’re lucky and found at least 2 crates, her Orb will take care of ’em while you save your bullets for the real brawlers.

Overall Score for Jessie

Jessie and Scrappy are quite good in both Smash & Grab and Bounty. The team gets a helping hand from her turret. If you’re planning on spending your Elixirs on Jessie, put them all in Scrappy first. Your opponents will usually disregard it until it hits them with 75 DMG each at max. If you plan on using Jessie in Showdown, get 1 or 2 power-ups and go into hiding. Poke around the bushes and shoot towards other Brawlers fighting. This will fill her super gauge which she needs during the 1v1 match.
