Find some more people to punch – in different contexts, with different weapons, sure – in the best multiplayer games on PC.

Crunch is a robotic pugilist with rocket-powered fists and a unique combo system. If you can learn to use each of his abilities correctly, you can chain fast, hard-hitting combos together to scrap your opponents:

  • Re-Crunch – Re-Crunch repeats the last ability used, opening up more possible combos. It also has two passive components. First, landing basic attacks shaves time off your cooldowns. Second, every third ability used is empowered.
  • Forward Crunch – Launches Crunch forward, stopping on the first enemy hero hit, dealing damage. When empowered, Forward Crunch pushes enemies the full distance of the charge.
  • Left Crunch – Crunch delivers a left hook that deals increased cleave damage. When empowered, Left Crunch deals 100% basic attack damage to all enemies in cleave range.
  • Right Crunch – Crunch slows enemies on hit. When empowered, Right Crunch knocks up enemies.

Crunch is a melee-only hero who belongs to the “fighter” class and the fury/order affinities.
