How To Play Bruno In Mobile Legends
Last Updated: January 29, 2022
Bruno is a marksman that can deal high amounts of critical damage. He is one of those heroes that can force a win purely because of the massive damage he brings to the table. Here’s everything you need to know to get started playing the Mech Protector.
Bruno is an easy to use marksman that is perfect for beginners to help them learn how to effectively play the role. His blend of crowd control, mobility, and damage enhancement make him a great pick that can stand toe to toe with any of the strongest marksmen the game has to offer. He has the capability to be a self-sustaining carry thanks to the crowd control and dash from his second skill while his first skill can increase the damage he deals on his basic attacks. He is mostly played in the Jungle but can also be a decent pick in the Gold Lane. Bruno is a solid hero but he is not without weakness. Bruno may have a dash in his second skill but it’s range is quite short. Like all marksmen, he is also very squishy and is susceptible to heroes that can burst him down before he can deal his damage. Overall, Bruno is still a recommended pick and can be a viable marksman in most situations.
Bruno’s whole kit and play style is all about dealing damage and using his abilities to kite his opponents.
Passive – Mecha Legs
Each time Bruno’s skill causes damage, his critical chance will be increased by 2% that can stack up to 10 times for a maximum of 20% critical chance increase.
Since Mecha Legs are infused with power, Bruno can deal more damage, but he only gains 80% of the Attack Speed from items and emblems.
Bruno’s passive is perfect for a marksman like him and compliments his entire kit. Mecha Legs increases Bruno’s DPS and allows him to land critical hits more often. A crit focused build can make the most out of this passive.
First Skill – Volley Shot
Bruno infuses the power to his Mecha Legs to enhance his next Basic Attack to kick a powerball to the target, dealing 120 / 160 / 200 / 240 / 280 / 320 (+100% Total Physical Attack) points of Physical Damage and slowing the target by 30% for 0.5 second. The powerball will fall on the ground towards the direction Bruno is facing after hitting a target. Bruno and his teammates can pick up the energy ball for Bruno to use it again and reduce the cooldown of Flying Tackle by 1 second.
This is Bruno’s primary damaging ability. Use this whenever you can to empower your basic attacks and deal more damage to your targets.
Second Skill – Flying Tackle
Bruno makes a forward slide tackle, stunning enemies in his path for 0.5 second and dealing 140 / 165 / 190 / 215 / 240 / 265 (+40% Total Physical Attack) points of Physical Damage. If Bruno casts Flying Tackle while there is a powerball rebounding to him, he will retrieve the powerball immediately.
This is Bruno’s best form of crowd control and his mobility spell. It’s a great ability that gives Bruno an engage and an escape tool. It can go through thin walls so you can use it for quick getaways in tight areas.
Ultimate – Wave of the World
Bruno kicks an energy ball with full power at a specified hero, dealing 250 / 350 / 450 (+83% Total Physical Attack) points of Physical Damage, knocking back the target and reducing the enemy’s Physical Defense by 4% / 6% / 8% that stacks up to 3 times for 8 seconds. Afterwards, the energy ball will ricochet among enemy heroes up to 10 times and every hit deals 150 / 210 / 270 (+50% Total Physical Attack) points of Physical Damage.
Bruno’s ultimate is great in a teamfight setting. Although it’s effectiveness is significantly reduced in 1v1 scenarios. Nevertheless, it is still a very good ultimate but require the perfect opportunity to set it up.
When it comes to item builds, the only focus you should have is building damage. Specifically, items that increase Bruno’s damage output. This includes items that give raw damage, critical strike chance, and enhances his basic attacks. Out of all the items, there are 3 we consider essential on a hero like Bruno. These core items are Berserker’s Fury, Scarlett Phantom, and Endless Battle.
- Berserker’s Fury
+65 Physical ATK
+25% Crit Chance
Unique Passive: +40% Critical Damage
Unique Passive – Doom: Crit hit will increase the hero’s Physical Attack by 5% for 2s.
- Scarlett Phantom
+30 Physical ATK
+20% Attack Speed
+25% Crit Chance
Unique Passive – Frenzy: Crit hits increase the hero’s ATK Speed by 30% and Crit Chance by 5%. Last 2s.
- Endless Battle
+65 Physical ATK
+5 Mana Regen
+10% CD Reduction
+5% Movement SPD
+10% Physical Lifesteal
Unique Passive – Divine Justice: In 3s after using the skill, the caster’s next Basic Attack will deal additional True Damage as much as 60% of Physical Attack with a cooldown of 1.5s.
Unique Passive – Chase Fate: When Divine Justice’s effect is triggered, it will increase the hero’s movement speed 10%.
These trio of items are absolutely important for a hero like Bruno. This allows him to maximize his damage output. Berserker’s Edge and Scarlett Phantom increase his overall damage, crit chance, and attack speed. Endless Battle enhances his basic attacks even further when used in combination with his first skill.
- For emblems, the best sets to use are either the Marksman or the Assassin set. Ideally, you would take the Assassin set when you are going to play Bruno in the Jungle with Killing Spree as your talent. This allows him to get better at ganking other lanes. If he is playing in the Gold Lane, he’ll be better off with the Marksman set and Weakness Finder as his talent. This will give him a chance to slow his target’s attack and movement speed whenever he uses his basic attack on them.
- For battle spells, take Flicker when you are in a lane and Retribution if you are jungling. Flicker is a general mobility spell that adds another layer of utility to Bruno’s kit, while Retribution can help you clear jungle camps faster and secure objectives like Turtle or Lord.
- Like most marksmen, Bruno can easily be countered by assassins and fighters that can dive right into him and deal massive damage. Aside from those heroes, there are other specific counters that can severely negate Bruno’s effectiveness. These heroes are Zilong, Diggie, Hayabusa, and Alucard.
