Since Brody was introduced back in October 2020, he has become one of the game’s top bans in draft pick matches for many months in a row.
Despite Brody being extremely a formidable opponent, more and more players have found new ways to counter his presence in the game.
In fact, Mobile Legends has also “nerfed” Brody several times in the past few months.
Moving forward, this guide is aimed at helping more players understand Brody better, as well as shed some light on strategies (as well as hero picks) that can be used to counter him.
Understanding Brody’s Spells and Capabilities
Brody is extremely powerful.
Not only is he capable of dealing insane amounts of burst damage, he is also very mobile and has an extremely long shooting range.
In fact, it is very difficult to get near Brody as his second skill allows him to quickly “stun and jump away” (corrosive strike) from an opponent — allowing him to always maintain a safe distance from enemies.
As a result to that, many players tend to stay away from Brody, giving him plenty of opportunities to farm — which is not a good idea.
Brody can be pretty easy to counter if he is dealt with early, and the key to countering him is to prevent him from farming.
The richer Brody gets, his damage and prowess grows exponentially (better items and level difference), making it a lot harder to take him down quickly.
Hence, it is crucial to try to disrupt Brody’s farming activities as early in the game as possible, preferably before he joins his teammates in group fights.
Brody Hero Counters
Here are a few hero counters that can be very effective against Brody:
Assassins like Natalia, Saber, Lancelot, Hayabusa.
Pretty much most assassins like Natalia, Saber, Ling, and Lancelot can be very effective against Brody.
Not only do these heroes dish high amounts of damage to marksmen characters, they are also able to close the distance with Brody very quickly (and even flee from battle very quickly).
Johnson is a great hero to use against Brody as well, especially with his ultimate spell that allows him to transform into a car.
With the recent update giving Johnson a speed boost to his car-form, this can be a very effective counter against Brody as he will not suspect Johnson’s arrival while he is farming.
Chou can also be very effective against Brody, especially with his high burst damage and “stun-lock” ability.
Chou’s “stun-lock” is especially effective against Brody, as it prevents him from fleeing and attacking (since he is immobilised)
Eudora is very powerful, and arguably the only mage capable of unleashing insanely high amounts of burst damage in a split second.
Eudora’s ability to deal so much damage quickly can be extremely effective in eliminating Brody, as well as preventing him from farming by forcing him to return to the fountain to heal.
In wrapping up, Brody is not “all powerful”, and can easily be countered as long as he is:
- Immobilized / taken down very quickly
- Prevented from farming early game (continuously harassed)
- Surprise attacked (Ling, Johnson, ganking)
As long as players work as a team and keep an eye on the map always, Brody will not be a significant threat at all.
