Move Name Description Input
Bolt Friends / Hyperstatic Assault Iron Giant summons BOLTS to circle him. Each BOLT acts similarly to ARMOR but is immune to ARMOR BREAK abilities. Can be summoned while he is performing other moves. His allies receive GRAY HEALTH based on the number of bolts. Both will have an electric discharge after a short delay. In RAGE MODE, Iron Giant will fire a powerful electrical PROJECTILE. Separate COOLDOWNS apply for both attacks. When Iron Giant picks up ITEMS, he will eat them, refreshing the COOLDOWN for his BOLTS. Neutral
Carry On / Stunnalizer 3,000 Iron Giant will grab a nearby enemy. The enemy is STUNNED, and Iron Giant can carry them across the map. They are dropped after Iron Giant performs his next attack. In RAGE MODE, he fires an energy orb that will STUN enemies. COOLDOWN applies for the energy PROJECTILE. Side
Systems Are Go! / Electric Surge Iron Giant spins a beat-up hot rod around himself, blocking PROJECTILES. He can move and FLY while attacking, and the direction of his movement will change the angle the hot rod spins. In RAGE MODE, Iron Giant summons an electrical strike up his body. COOLDOWN applies to the electrical strike. Up
Cannonball / Aerial Laser Blast Iron Giant jumps into the air and then cannonballs downward. Before he jumps, he can move an aimer on the ground that will control where his cannonball lands.

Cannonball / Aerial Laser Blast Similar to ground, but Iron Giant does not aim and transitions immediately into the downward cannonball. Air Down

Passive Abilities

  • Iron Giant does not have a double jump, but will instead FLY when holding jump. FLYING activates his rocket boots, propelling him upward and consuming FUEL.
  • Iron Giant grants a THORN BUFF to himself and any ally that receives GRAY HEALTH. Enemies take DAMAGE whenever they deal DAMAGE to THORN users.
  • When Iron Giant deals DAMAGE or his ally takes DAMAGE, his RAGE meter will fill. When full, he can transition into RAGE MODE, dramatically altering many of his attacks, giving him GRAY HEALTH and making him immune to KNOCKBACK. Iron Giant will exit RAGE MODE after a period of time or when his GRAY HEALTH is depleted. Allies can press their Normal Neutral input to pilot Iron Giant while he is in RAGE MODE then aim his tentacles and fire light laser PROJECTILES with normal input and a heavy laser PROJECTILE with special input.
  • Fighters can walk along Iron Giant's shoulders like a PLATFORM when he is in WALL CLING. Iron Giant will transition to a WALL SLIDE after a fighter has stood on his shoulders long enough. Enemies will bounce off of him like a WALL if they collide with him while in KNOCKBACK.

How to Win as Iron Giant

Iron Giant is a complex, complicated character — and arguably one of the most difficult to get to grips with in MultiVersus. Due to his enormous size, you're going to struggle to avoid attacks, and are going to have to tank a lot of damage. Fortunately, the impressive weight of the character can make him tough to ringout, so you will be able to survive some quite high percentages.

There are basically two move-sets to learn here, with almost all of Iron Giants attacks and specials changing when he initiates Rage Mode. You can trigger this by accumulating damage. We'd recommend staying on the ground as much as possible and using your melees to do damage. You might want to consider adding Wildcat Brawler to your Perk mix to buff your damage output. Of course, there are times when you'll need to come off the ground, so add Afterburners to deal additional damage this way.

Once you've built up enough damage to launch Rage Mode, consider coordinating an offensive with a teammate as this will make you immune to knockback. As the character's Rage Mode move-set is particularly projectile heavy, consider adding a perk like Deadshot to bolster your damage output while you have Rage Mode enabled. You can really stack up some damage here, and remember a teammate can help pilot the projectiles. Manage your fuel carefully, and then use Cannonball as a deadly finisher once your opponents are weak and susceptible to ringouts.
