How to Play Garnet MultiVersus

Garnet MultiVersus is a bruiser archetype that can dish out a lot of pain as she punches her opponents out of the ring.

MultiVersus Garnet Guide

Garnet excels in ground close quarters combat with her fists giving her a lot of options to deal damage when she’s supported by a platform. She’s a very tough fighter who’s capable of breaking through Armor and has a variety of specials to keep enemies up close. Garnet can chain up her basic attacks for devastating combos once they land a hit.

Garnet MultiVersus is a highly offensive fighter that can use a variety of specials to control the arena. However they often need to be used right. Her Spark of Love special is great for debuffing enemies and giving you control on the ring, but it can just as easily miss. Garnet’s Gem Dash is great for setups if you can get the enemy between you and her marker.

It can be challenging for Garnet to deal with opponents who love to rely on ranged attacks like Tom and Jerry. Her Stronger Than You special can stop projectiles from ever hitting, but you need to be fast enough to react. This special does have the added bonus of stacking Rhythm which buffs allies.

MultiVersus Garnet Specials

  • Stronger Than You (Neutral Special): Garnet sings to create a barrier that applies Stop to incoming projectiles. Stopped projectiles can then be hit to reflect them back at the user. This will also give allies Rhythm which can stack to give them buffs. At one stack of Rhythm, allies gain a speed boost. At two stacks, allies gain Armor Break for their melee attacks.
  • Rocket Fist (Side Special): Garnet’s gauntlets can be launched as a projectiles which can be aimed on input. When done midair, the gauntlet projectiles don’t travel as far. When using this special on cooldown, Garnet will do a shoulder charge instead.
  • Spark of Love (Up Special): Garnet shoots an electric bolt to the sky which can be charged for a more powerful effect. When the bolt projectile lands, it creates an electric zone that applies Electrified to allies and Shocked to enemies. The zone will also Knockback enemies upon expiring that gives allies a stronger Electrified buff that will increase their melee damage. When using this special on cooldown, Garnet will do an overhead clap instead.
  • Gem Dash (Down Special): Garnet places a marker that she can use to dash to again upon activating the special a second time. If any enemy is along the way between her and the marker, Garnet can pick up the enemy and throw them back. Allies can pick up this marker and upon Garnet dashing to them, their Knockback and Hitstun will cancel and refresh air options.
