Deadshot – Hired Gun

Floyd Lawton is an expert marksman and gun-for-hire with a death wish. For the right price, he’ll hit his target or die trying.

As a child, Floyd Lawton tried to end his abusive father’s reign of terror with a single shot. But when his aim went astray, Floyd accidentally killed his beloved brother instead. Vowing to never again miss, Lawson became the world’s greatest marksman and criminal gun-for-hire. Never quite shaking the guilt of his brother’s death, he harbors a reckless death wish with only his daughter Zoe giving him a reason to live.

Using Deadshot as your Team Leader is highly recommended — the guaranteed critical attack can make battles — especially in PvP — go quickly and in your favor.

Synergies

Deadshot is a lethal assassin, and giving him the right tools can annihilate the enemy’s plans. Pairing Red Robin with Deadshot works very well — Red Robin benefits from the guaranteed crit, helping his otherwise measly damage, and he can grant Deadshot True Sight — helping Deadshot eliminate Mystical characters like Wonder Girl hiding behind taunters.

Countered By

Energy characters can get rid of a pesky Deadshot, but thanks to his invisibility buffs he can be hard to get to. Characters with True Sight can shoot him behind his invisibility, making Batman – World’s Greatest Detective and Red Robin good counters in the sense that they enable their team to eliminate him more efficiently.

Notes

Deadshot gives his team an incredible boost with a guaranteed critical attack, and his ability to one-shot most Mystical characters without ever missing makes him a very good character to have in your roster.
