Brimstone Abilities

Here are Brimstone's abilities:

  • Incendiary: Launch an incendiary grenade that deploys a damaging field of fire.
  • Stim Beacon: Target a nearby location to call in a Stim Beacon, giving all players near it Rapidfire.
  • Signature Ability ⁠— Sky Smoke: Use your map to call in orbital deployment smokescreens that obscure vision. Click to set the locations, and confirm to launch.
  • Ultimate ⁠— Orbital Strike: Use your map to target a location, launching a devastating orbital strike that pulses for high damage over several seconds.

Gameplay

Brimstone is a great character to use on the attack as you can quickly clear out open bombsites with his ultimate, as well as utilising your Sky Smoke to enter the site unseen.

Equally, his incendiary grenade will be a great tool on defence to block off pathways and slow down your opponents while your team is able to rotate and reposition.

 

Brimstone appears to be more of a utility agent that will work well with an organised squad.

Given his more tactical based abilities, it may be worth playing a slower-paced style and using the Operator sniper rifle - dictating the game rather than brawling it out with others.
