Supportive Words

Velma shouts a word bubble Projectile that seeks out her ally. If the bubble hits any fighter, ally or enemy, they become targeted and additional bubbles will lock onto their location. Allies who become targeted will also briefly gain hastened.

If the final hit lands on an ally, they will fire an additional beam. If the final hit lands on an enemy, they receive a stack of Weakened. Velma can aim the beam up or down. Has a chance to spawn evidence on hit. Neutral
Fast Thinker Velma charges a sprint forward. Charging increases the speed of the sprint. Allies can hop into Velma's arms for the sprint, increasing the attack's power and giving Velma and her ally armour and gray health. Enemies will be grabbed and thrown upwards at the end of the sprint. Side
Toxic Concoction Velma spills toxic goop on the ground and jumps upward. Enemies standing in the goop will receive continuous stacks of ice, before eventually freezing. Up
Spread the Knowledge Velma throws a book Projectile that homes onto her ally. Velma and her ally receive an educated if the book hits them, refreshing and reducing the duration of their Cooldowns. Down

Passive Abilities

  • Snoopin': During the match, evidence will appear, and some of Velma's moves will spawn evidence. Velma and her ally can pick up evidence to fill up her Evidence Meter. When the meter is full, Velma can call a police car. The police car will drive to and pick up the nearest enemy, disable them, and attempt to drive off the map. Enemies must struggle to escape the police car. The other enemy teammate can attack the car to try and release their teammate.

How to Win as Velma

To succeed as Velma, you're going to want to stay on the sidelines of the action as much as possible. While moves like Quip Master are competent in close-quarters combat, Velma is at her strongest peppering opponents from afar. Consider dropping Toxic Concoction into the busiest part of the arena, and then getting out of the way. You should fire Supportive Words towards your teammate or opponent, and once you have a lock-on, pepper more projectiles. Use Motivational Speaker in exactly the same way, and remember to use Spread the Knowledge to reduce your cooldowns. Coffeezilla is a good Perk to help mitigate this, too.

We'd recommend stacking Ice to Beat You as another Perk, because when paired with Toxic Concoction, this is going to really help you to disable your opponents. Remember to quickly collect evidence when it emerges, and consider using the Studied Signature Perk so that you can call your Police Car earlier in the battle. Try to freeze your opponents if possible before calling in your Police Car, and if you can trigger it close to the edge of the screen then this is helpful, as it reduces the amount of time the opponent has to escape. Remember that Bright Idea can be a great aerial finisher if you've already inflicted enough damage on one of your foes.
